A third year Physics student has developed a beer calculator app. Josh Palmer’s new invention
compares and stores prices of beer and ale. The app lets users know how to get “more party for your paycheck” by calculating the price per unit as well as the price per pint.
Palmer told LS: “If people could do the type of maths that Beerculator offers easily they would, but it’s difficult.”
One student commented: “It’s a really useful app to make sure you are getting a good deal. The app has a simple interface which makes it really easy to use.”
The app currently only com- pares the price of beer and ale but will include wine, cider and spirits in the near future. It is available from the App Store for 69p.
