An App For Window Cleaners by Window Cleaners

The way the Window Counter App works is you tap the plus button to open the form to create a new counter. You give your counter a name and set your own price, then select an image. And tap the Save Counter button.
You can select images of window types, screens, tracks, ladder work or paint scraping. If no image picked the default image is used.
To see and use your counters tap the back button. When you tap the plus and minus buttons on your counters you will notice a different sound played. The reason for this is so you know that it added or subtracted. To delete the counter swipe right or left and tap delete.
I meant what I said about an app for window cleaners by window cleaners. So I very much welcome all feedback and feature requests.
Window Counter is on the second version now. I must admit the first version had some bugs and needed some improvements. In a world where there are so many free apps its easy to lose touch of what goes into making a native mobile app.
