Once tallied, your results can be exported to PDF, CSV or a BrickLink Wanted List/Brick Owl Wishlist (via a Brickstore file).
Update (Jan 02, 2017): Improvements to data display (e.g., colour swatch shown next to colour name), PDF export, and a few other things.
Update (Dec, 2016): MPD-Tally now automatically works with parts lists in all MLCad language options (currently: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian).
I am indebted to Martin Long and Peter Corish for their sterling work that preceded and inspired this app.

However, there is currently a small flaw in this feature when it comes to tallying up the part quantities when saving a parts list. Even when the "Submodels" option is explicitly set, it does not take account of the number of times a submodel is actually used, making the part quantities inaccurate.
MPD-Tally fixes that by processing a parts list and calculating the correct quantities. It then presents the results in some lovely neat tables which you can print or save/export for later use.
