Just tried this app -- it has some problems

1) English language support is not complete.
2) Data entry mode does not change as you change fields.

The Two Peaks program looks more polished, and has both desktop and phone versions. --- but has one major problem with the program above.

when entering milage and gallons -- what I really want the program to do --- there is no easy way to handle the decimal point. twopeaks switches you into numeric input mode -- which doesn't have a "." symbol -- and this program leaves the input mode alone -- which usually means changing from abc or T9 to 123 -- then you still have the decimal point problem. I'd buy a progam like this if it could handle the decimal point for $$, Gallons, and milage inputs. Maybe like map the # key to emit the decimal point (or comma for you europeans).
