Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with any. One could certainly use
PocketMoney <http://www.catamount.com/NewtonApps/PocketMoney3.html> to
get the job done and some features like "Splits" might make aspects of
it easier. The glaring features missing from PocketMoney are,
obviously, the following:

- Multiple line items (possible simulated w/Splits?)
- Tax, shipping, etc. charges (easily handled w/Splits)
- Auto calculation of invoice/order subtotal & total
- Applying different types and amounts of payments

Since PocketMoney has an API
<http://www.catamount.com/NewtonApps/PM-FPS.html>, one could write a
Point-of-Sale app that uses PocketMoney for the accounting back-end
and keeps a record of individual invoices/orders. Although, I'm not
sure how much interest there is for such a development.
