Account Tracker 2.6 now available

November 30, 2010

Added support for “bill reminders”. Basically each transaction now has a reminder switch, and if this is turned on, the Accounts screen will report the number of days until the next such transaction (1-28 days warning). This also ties in with the way I alert users if any of their accounts are going to hit their alert limits, i.e. you can configure the app to send you an alert a few days in advance. The latter is done in the background for supported devices, otherwise it happens when you launch the app.

For those of you with devices that can run apps in the background (e.g. the iPhone 4), added the ability to make automatic backups. These are made in the background after you close the application if the latest backup is older than the configured number of days (1-7). Note that backups will only protect you if you export them off your device, so please don’t forget to do this from time to time. You have been warned!!

Fixed a bug where the starting balance in the reports was incorrectly calculated when you have accounts in other currencies (thanks to Bob Hooper for reporting this – I am surprised I didn’t notice it myself!!).

Corrected a few minor issues caused by the introduction of spending refunds.
