Syncing support in Account Tracker

October 17, 2012

As you can probably tell, I have been somewhat busy recently. All of my apps needed updates to support the latest Dropbox APIs, otherwise this functionality would stop working in November/December. Then came iOS 6 which caused a few minor issues, and then (of course) the new iPhone/iPod Touch which have a different screen size. Keeping my existing apps working is my top priority!

On top of this, I have been testing the first release of Account Tracker for Windows Phone (now available). I am extremely pleased to say this is already the top paid personal finance app in the UK, the US, and a number of other countries (last time I checked, Canada, Australia, New Zealand … etc).

Account Tracker for the Mac has taken a back seat, as I’ve just not had the time. If anyone knows of an experienced OSX UI developer, perhaps this could be accelerated!

The next big feature coming soon is syncing. I have a solution for both Hill Lists and Meter Readings, but this won’t work very well for Account Tracker. My initial implementation will be based on iCloud and so can’t really be used for multiple people. However once I’ve done this, extending it to use Dropbox should be easy enough.

Please bear with me as I work through some final (and complex) issues. You really don’t want a solution that doesn’t work, or (worse) corrupts your data!
