TurboTax today unveiled TaxCaster, our first app for Windows Phone 7 (WP7), at Microsoft’s annual Professional Developers Conference. TaxCaster provides a quick tax estimate so you can get a good idea if you will owe money or – hopefully – get a nice big tax refund. You can enter exact amounts or estimates to see what your fate will be come April 15.
TaxCaster takes full advantage of Microsoft’s easily styled controls and animations to create a compelling user experience. The pivot control enables you to quickly navigate through the application to enter your tax data. TaxCaster builds on the momentum of Intuit’s innovative, multi-platform suite of mobile offerings for consumers and small businesses. We expect to introduce several new WP7 apps in the coming months.
TaxCaster is expected to be available for free download to Windows Phone 7 users in the U.S. on Nov. 8. Updated versions for the current tax year for all mobile platforms, including Android and iPhone apps, will be available in mid November. Bloggers can also download it as a plugin here.
