Layout improvements and minor bug fixes.

Split screen multitasking in Account Tracker PRO

October 1, 2017 Comments off

atp57 After an extensive rewrite of the way I layout the app’s user interface, I now have this working. It will be released soon in version 5.4.2 (Account Tracker PRO only).

Note that it only works on the following devices running iOS 9 or above: iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 4.

UPDATE: version 5.4.2 now released!

iOS 11 is now available

September 19, 2017 Comments off

As usual, Apple have made their annual iOS update in September. So far (famous last words!) I am not aware of any issues with my apps, but if you do come across something, please let me know ASAP.

Before upgrading, just a reminder that replacing your entire operating system is a pretty dramatic thing to do to your device. You should really ensure you have a backup of all of your important data (just in case). While you can use iTunes backups for this, e.g, to iCloud, I wouldn’t rely on this completely. Each of my apps support backups – see this post for full details. And remember to export your backup off your device!

Finally, quite a few people are asking whether my apps are 32-bit or 64-bit, as the former won’t work on iOS 11. All of my apps were converted years ago! To see your incompatible apps (if there are any), go to your main settings app, then select General then About then Applications. If it doesn’t show you a list, all of your apps are fine.

Account Tracker (for Mac) 5.4.1 now available

September 5, 2017 Comments off

atmac-64x64 Added support for exporting transactions as a CSV file (from the File menu).

Added support for importing transactions from a CSV file (use the Open option on the File menu, or cmd-O). This needs to be in the format documented below (just like iOS).

Added an option to force a manual sync (again, from the File menu). This shouldn’t ever be required, but if you prefer leaving the app open, it can be useful.

Improvements to iCloud syncing.

Account Tracker (for Mac) 5.4 now available

August 20, 2017 Comments off

atmac-64x64 Added support for Touch ID, to unlock the app using the touch bar on supported Macs.

Enhanced transaction searching, giving the sum (total), transaction count and average transaction value with each key tap.

Fixed an issue to do with recurring transactions and the notes field. I now display the series note, unless overridden per occurrence. You can edit the series note from the first occurrence.

Added support for copy, cut and paste while editing transaction fields.

Added mouse support to the balance graph. Much like touch support on iOS, click and drag along the graph to display intermediate values.

Account Tracker (iOS) 5.4.1 now available

help This update fixes a bug introduced in version 5.4, specifically the hang/crash at startup affecting a very small number of users.

I have also made improvements to searching for those users with very large numbers of transactions (Account Tracker PRO only).

Apologies if you hit either of these over the past few days.

Finally, added an upgrades section to the bottom of the Settings screen, giving you a few options to get more out of your data.
