Account Tracker 3.1 now available

May 28, 2011 Comments off

This is a fairly major update, where the user interface has been changed to use tab bars for all the main screens (accounts, budgets, reports, backups and settings). I believe it is far better than the previous version, however if you really don’t like change, please try out the free version or look at the screenshots here BEFORE updating!

Account groups – you can now add as many as you like from the settings screen. Also with this change, you can now hide individual accounts rather than just those in the last account group. Switching between showing and hiding accounts has been made easier too, by tapping on the total balance button.

Reports – added a new period option where you can enter your own custom dates. These can be fixed, or you can use Today as a floating date, making it easy to do reports like “Year to date”.

Improved the way you set up recurring transactions to make it more obvious that the app supports every 2 weeks (for the record, it has since version 1.0, you just had to select Weekly then set Every to 2).

Added support for using a folder within Dropbox for your backups. Basically if the app sees a folder called AccountTracker, it will use that in preference to the root folder.

Simplified the getting started tour.

Bug fixes.
