iDonatedIt: CPA firm produces donation-tracking iPhone App

The Lincoln, NE-based firm BMG Certified Public Accountants, LLP has released a $2.99 donation-tracking application for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users. Written by a team of CPAs, iDonatedIt allows taxpayers to track non-cash donations, which typically include clothes or household goods that are to be donated to organizations like The Salvation Army or Goodwill. According to the BMG Web site, iDonatedIt is the first app to track and value your non-cash charitable donations. 

Users first indicate the name and address of the organization and the date of the donation, then add entries for the individual items. The application suggests market values for donated goods based on the users' description of the condition of the item. Values differ based on rankings of good, better or best. Users can attach pictures of the donated items to the donation record, and then e-mail a report of their donations to themselves or their tax preparer. BMG has created a three-minute YouTube video demonstrating the use of iDonatedIt, as well as a step-by-step guide. iDonatedIt can be purchased at the iTunes App Store.
 
With this release, BMG joins the ranks of 30,000 iPhone app developers, who have collectively created approximately 150,000 apps. Potential iPhone application developers can view the Developing Apps for iPhone video on the Apple Web site for tips on getting started.
