PowerControl

By  | 

Summer and winter times are especially tough on households that run on a tight budget. We all want to cool or warm our houses and have a large HDTV sitting in the middle. The trouble is your energy bills could skyrocket if you are not watching out your consumption level. Each device that you leave on or fail to disconnect can add a bit to your bill. A lot of people have trouble figuring out what they can do to reduce their energy bills without changing their lifestyle much. That’s where PowerControl enters. It’s a handy iPhone application that enables you to calculate and mange your electricity consumption and make the right decisions to save money.

PowerControl for iPhone has 11 categories and 70 devices you can choose from to figure out ways to reduce your consumption level at home. All devices have useful information attached next to them. So you don’t have to leave things to guess work. You can of course add, delete, and modify the information in this app.

The report feature is pretty useful too. It shows you energy information for your devices (annually, monthly, or daily). You can also compare your stats to find areas to improve upon.

PowerControl is a pretty decent app for anyone looking to save money on their electricity bill. It probably could have been priced cheaper, but it can pay for itself fast.
