16 November 2011: This application has had a major update, see the details in this post
One of the most popular posts on my website is the AA Rate calculation spreadsheet I built in 2008. The goal of the spreadsheet is you provide the details about your vehicle and it tells you what the AA Rate for your vehicle is. So I decided to rebuild this for Windows Phone 7!
This was a lot of fun because it has some complex issues (matrixes of values) which had to be solved, so that tickled my developer brain.
This also allowed me the opportunity to update the calculations since they change every so often which is important for you!
An interesting thing that I learnt with this release is that the official/documented calculations is NOT equal to what the AA online calculator does. So there is an option now called “quirks mode” which runs it equal to the online calculator where if you turn it off, it runs it using the documented mode!
