Please READ... Save Energy - **New** Please see our YouTube video by searching for "MeterRead Tutorial Basics" or search "MeterRead Digital" to quickly learn how to set the app to read digital meters.

PLEASE READ: Click the "i" for help tags-5 dial meters- tap the "home" icon and then "start", then "record", then "view list", come back whenever and do it again and you'll see your average kW-h usage! The app became confusing after we added support for day/night meters, multiple meters and the ability to see your totals from your first read the last, but it can be easy for you- for most people it's as easy as "Home", "Start", "Record" and "View" and then come back later and do it again and get your data. Please write a review if you like it!

"MeterRead’s strength is in the calculations it provides. With each reading you record, you get up-to-date stats of your energy use, including an estimate of how many kilowatt hours you’ll burn for the next 30 days. You’ll know at a glance whether your energy-saving activities are on track, or if you need to turn off a few more lights"

"Excellent customer support/developer is very responsive.
Accurate formula. Cost-saving and environmentally conscious"

Listed as one of "five killer apps that can help you pocket extra cash" by CNET News

Studies show that motivated people who monitor their energy use generally save 10-20% on their electric bill. (The Effectiveness of Feedback on Energy Consumption, S.Darby)

The key is FEEDBACK and this app provides it. You can read your meter right now and then check it again 20 minutes, 20 hours or 20 days from now and you will see how many Kw-h you're pacing.

Save money. (our family is saving $50/mo!)

Save energy.

Save the planet.
