Whether you’re thinking about buying a hybrid car or getting a more efficient air conditioner, EcoCense can help you make that decision by comparing both the costs and the cost savings.
An article on AppModo discusses the release of this great new “eco app” for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. With EcoCense, you can see how much an energy-efficient upgrade could cost or save, as well as get an idea of the environmental impact of upgrading. EcoCense’s strongest feature, however, is in comparing vehicle models. Fill in information on vehicle costs, usage and MPG, and the app will estimate whether going with a more efficient car is the right choice for you. If you are considering a hybrid, but it costs $5,000 more, EcoCense can tell you how long it will take to recoup that investment.
If you’re comparison car shopping or looking at a major household upgrade, this app is a must have. EcoCense is available now for all iDevices and costs only $0.99 in the App Store.
