Financial Calculator published

Today I have published my 7th app Financial Calculator in google play. (you will see 8 apps in market page. But Kannada Hindi keyboard is no longer supported as Akshara keyboard is its successor.)

This app is meant for us Indians who want to save our money a little bit in FDs and RDs. Or/and pay EMI each month for housing and other loans. The app can calculate EMI amount, FD or RD maturity value. (So you can correct the bank official if they make a mistake :) )

It will also calculate how much will you pay extra for the loan. It lets you compare two loans, compare two FDs or RDs.

There are other calculations too. Gratuity calculator, loan afford
ability calculator, savings goal calculator and currency converter.

So what are you waiting for? Download app today and give me your valuable feedback.
