Or you could go here and build an app for that (for about the same price)

(presumably would work on Android and iphone and BB as the trigger is a webpage)

no ive been awake the whole time.
just get heaps of customers saying they got bad service or ripped off somewhere else.
e.g someone charging $1250 to install secondhand circuitboard for motor.
a brand new motor is around half that.
$750 to replace springs,that is more than triple what we i charge.
and the list goes on.

Those examples are pretty extreme but I've had a similar experience getting an old appliance repaired, I was told "it will be at least $200 if we can even get the parts", I took it somewhere else where they replaced the burnt out resistor and away it went for under $100.
