Account Tracker for Mac update #5

May 31, 2013

I know you are expecting another sob story about me being too busy to make progress … etc. While that is always partly true (given my day job), PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE! In fact I have just released my first beta to a small number of users who offered to give me feedback. 🙂

Version 1.0b1 is a fully functioning Mac app that reads your latest backup file from either Dropbox or iCloud, and shows you all of your accounts, budgets, reports and transaction views (all transactions, reminders and recurring series). You can’t edit any of this just now, but I have broken the back of the app, and can now focus on ticking off the remaining functionality.

Next up: custom date editing, individual transaction views and exchange rate updates …

UPDATE: beta 2 has been sent to ~20-25 users. I don’t really need any more people now, as it takes quite a bit of my time per user (handholding, responding to comments and questions … etc). Perhaps as I get closer to releasing this (in a few months) I might open it up further. Thanks!

    Graham I have tried every possible financial app available, spent way too much money and have always come back to Account Tracker. The primary reason is it is simple, great cloud sync, not cluttered gives me just what i want a forecast and the ability to change a single payment in a specific account allowing me to payoff credit cards and see how that will work in my overall financial forecast. Great Job Graham. Right now I use my iPad as my primary device, but with a mac version that would be even better. Can’t wait. Thanks for you hard work.

    Hi Graham,

    I use your iOS version and its great! I would love to test anything that would be on the mac.

    Also, have you considered including an expected closing balance for the end of the month? Thats the only thing I miss since ditching my own spreadsheet that I used to use.

      Hi Dan, I am not looking for more testers just now, but I will post again when I need more. Thanks!
      I don’t support end of month balances, however that is more because everyone gets paid at different periods. To get around this, I do support the minimum balance, which shows your lowest balance between today and the end of next month. You can view this by changing the balance type on the main accounts screen.

    Good to hear this. I am still persevering with the clunky method of using your app on my iphone and ipad but using a spreadsheet on my mac.
    I echo otjers in saying if you want another tester count me in.

    Delighted to try out Mac beta. Am a big fan. While I’m commenting can I please ask how to delete budget category names entered in error or no longer in use?

    Cheers

      Hi Laurence, I have added you to my list. To delete a budget for a given category, just swipe and delete (on the budget screen), or set its value to 0.
