Account Tracker 3.9.1 now available

March 28, 2013 Comments off

This update is mainly COSMETIC, with some minor IMPROVEMENTS and fixes for all known BUGS (i.e. both of them!).

Fixed a potential crash when editing custom dates in the budgets and reports.

Changed the currency code MUR to have 2 decimal digits (an iOS bug that I am having to workaround!). If you are using MUR, PLEASE get in touch!

Added support for loading backup and CSV files directly into the app from other apps (e.g. Mail or Dropbox). As an example, if you have a CSV file in an email, tap and hold the file and choose to open it with Account Tracker. NOT SUPPORTED IN THE FREE VERSION.

Changed the default backup file extension to .atb to allow the above to work properly for backups (I need a unique file extension for each of my apps).

You can now set category budgets BEFORE you enter transactions. Also these budget categories are made available when entering new transactions.

On the backups screen you can now access both Dropbox and iCloud. If you do have both configured, new backups will be sent to iCloud only.

Slight colour change to the smaller text to help those who struggled to read it.

All “second row” text in the tables is now in italics (rather than my inconsistent use of italics previously). If you don’t like this change, you can turn it off in the ADVANCED settings.

Moved the “update rates now” feature to the main Accounts screen where it is most needed – simply pull down, hold and release to update. Note that you don’t really HAVE to do this manually but it is nice to have the option.

Removed the group and overall totals when viewing minimum balances (as they don’t make sense).

Layout improvements on the budget and list view screens.

Changed the balance graph for individual accounts to show the intra-day min and max, rather than the end of day balances (which is how this screen was designed). The graph itself will continue to show end of day balances as there is only one point per day.

On the settings screen, moved the advanced settings to the top right, and moved backups into the backups section (still visible on the first page though).

Account Tracker for Mac update #4

March 3, 2013 Comments off

I am finally making some reasonable progress, although there is still a LONG way to go!

I now have a cut-down implementation that runs on a Mac. It reads your most recent backup on either Dropbox or iCloud (these are on your Mac already), and gives you a READ ONLY view of all of your accounts (the account view), the three transaction views, the budget screen, and the seven report screens. All using the settings and data in your backup file.

I am currently adding a few options to the toolbar at the top of the screen, specifically to add transaction searching, filtering reconciled transactions, and changing the dates and accounts on the budgets and reports screens. Once I get that far (perhaps in a few weeks?), I will make this available as a limited alpha release to get some feedback. No need to sign up or anything, just keep an eye out for further updates.

After that, I will need to work on letting you actually change things.

And then iCloud syncing of course …
