Sweldong Pinoy wins at iOSDevCampPH

Last July 12-14, 2013, +Globe Labs organized the iOSDevCamp Philippines: The App Challenge 2013. Since +Sweldong Pinoy does not have an iOS app yet, +Jomar Tigcal decided to start making one during the hackathon. Surprisingly, during the judging on the 14th, we're one of the three winners of the iOSDevCamp.

We'll let you know as soon as we have published Sweldong Pinoy in the App Store. Thank you Globe Labs for continuously supporting and recognizing the effort of the developers.

Sweldong Pinoy Featured in Radio, TV and Articles

Almost a year ago, The Filipino Lifestyle had an article entitled, Independence Day Special: Proudly Pinoy Apps. Much to our surprise, Sweldong Pinoy for Android is one of the apps listed in the article. Thank you so much for the feature TFL!


Five months after this article feature, Jomar received an email from Mr. Carlo Ople. He is the husband of the reporter and radio show host for TV5, Miss Michelle Orosa-Ople. They wanted to feature Sweldong Pinoy for their radio show in Radyo5 92.3 News FM, Oplan Asenso. We were there on November 10 (12:00 NN to 2:00 PM) and their topics for that weekend are salary, deductions and budgeting.

After the radio show, we also had a video interview about the app. Here's our photo with the radio host and below is the screenshot of Michelle's tweet about the TV appearance of Sweldong Pinoy on November 14, 2012.

Two weeks after the radio interview and news scoop about Sweldong Pinoy, we found this article in Breath Technology about the app.

Thank you very much to all those using Sweldong Pinoy and to those writing or posting about the app.

Page Speed Insights Test

I was reading about Google's Page Speed Tools earlier and decided to try the Page Speed for Sweldong Pinoy. I installed the Page Speed Insights Chrome Extension and immediately tested sweldongpinoy.com. Below is the result of the test:



Sweldong Pinoy got an overall PageSpeed Score of 92 out of 100; and there are no high priority suggestions! There are still some areas to improve though. I'm hoping to increase the PageSpeed Score in the next few days.

What is Sweldong Pinoy?

Sweldong Pinoy is a salary calculator for Filipinos in computing net pay, withholding taxes and contributions to SSS, PhilHealth and PAG-IBIG. Withholding tax was computed based from the monthly taxable income using the BIR Revised Withholding Tax Table. Computation of the other deductions are based from PhilHealth Circular 57 s.2012, SSS Contribution Table, and Republic Act No. 9679 (for the PAG-IBIG contributions).

If you have an Android device, you may also download the Android app from Google Play. You can use the app even if your device does not have internet connection. You can also share the results of the computation via SMS, email or to social networks (if you like). If you are using Google Chrome, you might also want to install the app from the Chrome Web Store.

We are continuously updating and improving the app. If you have any comment, recommendation or suggestion, please contact us.
