Account Tracker Pro 6.1 now available (iOS and Mac)

July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

atp57 Improved and added colour coding to the lists of transactions. Red is future and blue the most recent (as before). Light grey is reconciled and dark grey is for transactions yet to be reconciled (iOS only).

Moved all the copy and move transaction options to the blue accessory buttons rather than having some on the swipe buttons (Pro version only).

Added support for doughnut charts (as an alternative to pie charts). These can be enabled in the advanced settings (Pro and Mac versions only).

Added support for syncing selected settings (including account and group order) from your primary device on iOS (Mac version only).

Upgraded to the latest Dropbox framework.

hlicon57 The lists view now shows completed lists separately, to make tracking multiple rounds easier.

The dashboard view now supports swipe actions, to show maps per month or year and to quickly add a new ascent of your most climbed hills. Simply swipe right to left on a month, year or hill.

Upgraded to the latest Dropbox framework.

Meter Readings 6.1 now available

June 14, 2020 Comments off

mricon57 Added a new meter type, specifically for things where your readings don’t accumulate (e.g. temperature, height or weight).

Set the meter direction to average, and on the graphs the number of readings in a given period are averaged (rather than added).

Feedback is welcome!

Hill Lists 6.5 now available

February 28, 2020 Comments off

hlicon57 Updated to version 16.4 of the DoBIH (released on 26th February 2020). The Trail 100 list has been replaced by the new version published in February’s Trail magazine. Other minor changes have been made to the HuMPs, Simms, Dodds and Fellrangers.

Added list completion dates to the lists view (displayed when complete, unless you have multiple rounds configured).

Added the hill’s relative height (also known as drop or prominence) to each individual hill page.

Added an option to filter the location view map by height (3000ft, 2500ft or 2000ft), drop (150m or 100m) or to distinguish tracked lists. When viewing the map (4th tab), tap the location view icon a second time.

Added a setting to change the climbed hills colour to blue (for some people, green and red are not a good combination).

Bug fixes.

MINOR UPDATES …

6.5.1 was released on 5th April to fix an issue when importing ascents from a CSV file.

Meter Readings 6.0 now available

mricon57 Marketing and AppStore changes only.

Apple now require developers to submit a new version of an app just to change the text on the AppStore!

MINOR UPDATES …

6.0.1 was released on 21st February to remove the price comparison feature, hopefully temporarily. Following their takeover by Go Compare, Energylinx are no longer supporting smaller switching sites (like mine), citing a change in business focus. This feature had been there in my app for almost 10 years, helping 100s of users switch suppliers, many repeatedly.

6.0.2 was released on 15th April to make some internal changes to meet Apple’s new AppStore requirements (specifically to do with the launch screen and help text).

6.0.3 was released on 3rd June to adjust when the app switches from bar charts to line graphs, and to improve the extrapolation calculation for the most recent quarter.

Account Tracker Pro 6.0 now available (iOS and Mac)

atp57 Added an import wizard to make it easier to import arbitrary CSV files. See the user guide section on importing for more details.

Basically if the CSV format is not recognised, the app tries to find transactions based on a date column, then lets you assign the other columns to fields (or skip them). It has been tested with quite a few CSV file formats, but if it doesn’t work for you, please contact support. Chances are it just needs a new date format defined. I can do that independent of the app.

Note the Mac version has had a version bump too (to 6.0), although no changes have been made there (Apple now require developers to submit a new version of an app just to change the text on the AppStore!).

MINOR UPDATES …

6.0.1 (iOS only) was released on 16th April to fix a crash in the import wizard if the last column had no value on any row. Also if the last column had no value in the first row, you couldn’t assign it.

6.0.2 (iOS only) was released on 1st May to fix a crash when making a new manual backup.

Account Tracker Pro – importing CSV files

January 2, 2020 Comments off

atp57 I am adding an import wizard, to make it a lot easier to import arbitrary CSV files. It still needs a recognised date per transaction, but you can then assign columns to any field.

If you regularly import CSV files from your bank and would like to try this out to give me feedback, I would be happy to add you to my Test Flight beta testers list. Just drop me an email from the contact page.

Alternatively, please send any sample CSV files you might have. Feel free to cut them down to just a few transactions, and you can change the amounts to 0 if you want to keep things private. It is the format more than the data I am interested in.

Thanks!

hlicon57 Updated to version 16.3 of the DoBIH (a new Munro top, plus minor changes to the Marilyns, HuMPs, Simms, Nuttalls, Dodds, Deweys, Highland Fives and County Tops).

Added all historical variations of the Munros list: 1891 (the original), 1921, 1933, 1953, 1969, 1974, 1981, 1984, 1990 and 1997. Also a list of deleted Munros, i.e. hills that used to be included in one of the historical lists but are no longer classified as Munros.

Added three SMC-specific lists: the Donalds (combining the Donalds and Donald Tops), Furths (combining the Welsh, English and Irish Furths) and the Full House (Munros, Munro Tops, Corbetts, Grahams, Donalds, Donald Tops and Furths).

Added options to quickly display maps of each list directly from the Hill Lists screen. Just swipe right to left across any list.

Added an additional map option here, to show all unclimbed hills in tracked lists (shown in grey) with unclimbed hills in the selected list (in red). This is useful if you are focusing on one list but want to see other hills of interest nearby.

Moved the MWIS links to a separate section on the settings tab.

Added a setting to automatically sort tracked lists by their unclimbed/to do counts.

Added a setting to enable the (application) icon badge, to display a count of your unclimbed hills.

March 10, 2019 Comments off

help Always show the all transactions view if you have multiple accounts, as it is used to search across them all. Similarly show the recurring and reminder views if there are multiple recurring transactions or reminders respectively.

Replaced most of the blue accessory (i) buttons with row swipe actions, to free up space and make it possible to add further options, e.g. quickly setting an account’s current balance, or duplicating a transaction (without copying to today). To access these options, swipe right to left on the account, transaction or budget table rows.

Added support for importing splits from a CSV file (in a similar way to importing transfers using multiple rows).

Improvements to the CSV export format, including foreign transaction amounts. Also made the CSV and (transaction) PDF export formats consistent.

Added a workaround for an iOS issue where the wrong decimal separator is used on the iPhone decimal number keypad. This prevented some users from entering exchange rates.

More streamlined text field editing throughout the app.
