Cost estimator for machined parts

Are there any apps or methods to get an estimation on cost for machined parts currently? I have looked through the App Store without success.

    @Ivan_Deetlefs, I am not aware of an app, but there are a gazillion online vendors that will quote directly from a CAD file whether you're looking for machining, 3d printing, laser cutting, plasma cutting, ... or probably even widget spinning.  Google is your friend ... when it's not spying on you (then it's just creepy).

    https://www.xometry.com/ is one that I use for 3d printing.

    These online quoting engines are also a great way to refine your design.  It's analogous to  running FEA on design iterations, but in this case you're trying to suss out their design rules and make your part more process-friendly.
