Account Tracker (iOS)


Account Tracker is a powerful personal finance app that helps you track spending and monitor balances across multiple accounts. There are two versions: a default (CLASSIC) version and a new PRO version (adding support for the Apple Watch, 3D Touch, AirDrop and more). Also check out my companion Mac app too!

For a quick overview, please read the Getting Started page, otherwise the following sections summarise the main application screens, and describe what you can do with each one. For a detailed description, follow the “More information” links.

Note that all the screen shots shown are from an iPhone, however the iPad equivalents look very similar. The only real difference between the iPhone and iPad versions is that some screens are shown as popups rather than sliding a whole new view into place.
