Great app. 1 key feature would make it amazing

This app is great and definitely worth the $9. My only wish is that you could search for words on the page you are viewing, similar to a ctrl + f on windows. That would be a huge help. Otherwise great

Outstanding tool

I can't think of an app, at any price, that is as useful, user friendly and fully functioned. I have used it for quite some time and it has worked perfectly, in every situation.

Got charged $ 2 days after downloading this app

I did not even open the Application and two days after downloading I was charged. This application does not indicate charges anywhere. Nor does it show in my application as active. Don’t download this app.

Developer Response ,

I am sorry you experienced problems. The only cost for TouchTax is the initial purchase price. There are no ongoing charges or in-app purchases. The problem you experienced is related to Apple services and is not related to TouchTax.
