Today’s update of the budget book, which is available for a few minutes in the version 3.9 in-store play, includes several minor bug fixes in the application. At the same time removed the demo version of the budget book from the market and replaced with a free, advertising-funded version but, the budget book.
4 Weeks have passed since the last update of the budget book and there changed a lot. The last weeks have been used to check the huge count of user requests for new features and changerequests in the app. A long list of changes must be implemented into the application.
The question over all is probably – “What is new in Version 3.0″ – so I want to give you an overview about the new features:
Revision of the gui
The grapical interface of the budget book is shortly before the first birthday. More and more customers requestes for a “prettier” gui. Stop the boring shades partially hurt in our eyes and did well as a, as I think, quite beautiful and more functional interface.
The basic functions has been retained. Of course a new booking can still be done with just a few keystrokes and all central areas of the budget book can be creached fast and easy. Nevertheless, in the direction of color selection, arrangement and operation of components and the operation of each function has done a lot.
Restructuring of the overview pages
The central location of a folder page has also been completely restructured. Goods were originally housed the booking summary and overview of accounts in these two riders own now combined on one tab. This section provides extensive filtering options by finally go the way the evaluations exactly as it is needed – that is completely free.
(Searched here in the comments box), the new free-text search for new bookings complete the overview area.
Of course, you can filter your individual settings to be saved automatically so that they are preset at the next visit – so you can design your individual summary page.
free CSV Import
More often it happens that users want to switch from other applications on the budget book. The vexed question of the import data was then on more and more, but is now solved. Through the implementation of a freely configurable CSV import, you can now all CSV files to import in the Budget Book for Android.
Simply transfer the file to your Android device and set the fields to be imported. The data is imported into the household and book are available.
add pictures of vouchers / receipts
Some users want the budget keeping with their request came to me that they like to add photos of receipts or other supporting documents to a booking. So this feature with the new version was implemented. You can now begin to wish for each booking a photo with your camera that is automatically assigned to the reservation.
Since version 2.20 has the financial accounts of the possibility of some data via a widget to place on your home screen. These widgets have been enhanced with version 3.0 and now offer even better overview of the current budget.
Furthermore, adjustments were made ??in the following areas:
During the last weeks a huge count of budgetbook updates were published, version 2.20 just arrived. It´s time to look back to have a view on the last changes:
multi user synchronisation
Since nearly 6 month its possible to synchronize the budgetbook for android with multiple users. In this case the device creates automaticly in background some files to a configured dropbox account that are used to synchronize with the other devices. By this feature it is possible to use a book of household with more people, for example one budgetbook over the whole family on different devices.
This features has been updated frequently with new functions and many bugfixes. Since the Version 2.18 the synchronization should work without any failures.
More informations can be found here.
Widgets for Homescreen
The call for widgets grew louder during the last weeks. Some customers wrote me mails with the request to add a widget to get a overview about the complete budget at the homescreen. This first widget has been published with version 2.19 of the budgetbook and needs 2 x 1 call of the homescreen and can be placed everywhere you want. Here you can see a short preview of the widget in action:
Auto-completion for comment box
Within the comment field again and again the same inputs are made. Tina gave me the idea that there was an auto-completion of the field but a good idea … and here is the extension. When entering characters in the book suggests the remark that household since version 2.20 have already been made before entries that begin with the same characters. This prevents the entry of the same values in different cases and optimizes the time it takes for inputs. Incidentally, the data set is improved – the interpretation of the observations will be soon available
In addition there are several bug fixes and minor enhancements. The detailed summary can be found in the changelog of the application.
Currently I am working on a major new feature which will be published as planned until the end of November. At this stage I would like to comment yet on this issue in more detail, but will shortly publish a corresponding news.
While I´ve been surfing around on the google market for android I arrived the category of paid apps for the financial sektor. I though my eyes were playing tricks with me, the budget-book published by me is listed on position 3 overall products of the financial sector:
