The following table shows the main features of Account Tracker (as of version 5.2.1) and how they are supported on both the Mac version (coming soon) and my backup (ATB) viewer. It will be updated as development and new updates progress.

Account Tracker for Mac update #13

atmac-64x64 Since my last update I have continued working on a few missing features.

Foreign transactions (including rate lookups) and almost all recurring transaction types are now supported, meaning that for day-to-day use, the only feature that will not work (initially) is splits. You will be able to create these on iOS and view them on the Mac, just not create or edit them.

I will be wrapping up development by the end of January (i.e. in 2-3 weeks), and will then start preparing the app for submission to Apple. Adding on the approvals process for a new app, and allowing for a few issues, I would expect to be able to release by the end of February.

I will then be adding Dropbox syncing support as soon as I can manage it, and of course implementing splits.

Account Tracker/PRO 5.2.1 now available

help iCloud improvements and bug fixes, in preparation for my Mac app (coming soon).

Added a percentage increase/decrease to the balance report, based on the starting balance.

Note that you now require iOS 8 or above (which means the 6 year old iPhone 4 is no longer supported). Older versions (of iOS and my app) will continue to work in isolation, however syncing is not supported between different app versions (5.2 to 5.2.1 is ok).

UPDATE: if you notice the app freezing when running this version, please see my support page where the issue and fixes are discussed.
