Nice and useful app Last update (06/2015) is all wrong! Not working properly (reports not working, backup not working, export not working) user interface is terrible, no category search as before... Do not update.... I liked this app before: the interface, overview features, more currencies and accounts feature, category list, ease of use, export possibilities. I would rate full stars but I miss some details: report on income structure (same structured view as with expenses), detailed report on each account. Thanks for this application.
I used Financius for about a year and a half, replacing Spendee. Financius was the best expense manager that I had seen during the time I was using it. Once I encountered another app called Expense Manager, it became a tossup on which one was better. Financius offers a better UI and reporting, while Expense Manager offers decent reporting with meh UI, but most importantly I think, Expense Manager has widgets to quick-add expenses, while Financius does not. To put that in perspective, using Expense Manager, i have my 8 most used categories on a homescreen, tap one it brings up a expense entry screen, selecting the category. I enter an amount and hit submit. Financius requires me to start the app, hit new transaction, enter an amount, select category, select tags (if applicable) and then submit. So I prefer Financius for the reporting and UI, but Expense Manager for the functionality. If Financius were to add widgets, it would reign supreme for me again.
Solution for everyone It has the features of many expense tracker. I was using a few and decided to stick to this due to the fact that it supports multiple currency view. Good job dev. Some suggestion that I would improve the ux: 1) summary of monthly expenses on the dashboard rather than acc balance n trending alone. 2) budget allocation for categories.
A few downsides Would be nice to be able to assign tags to categories. Now it's pretty insane to scroll all the way down to assign the tag which suits only to one category and this category has only two tags. Also would be nice, but not necessary, to assign spent sums to tags also. Now I have more than ten transactions each with different tag assigned and different sums instead of one transaction with a lot of tags and their assigned sums. Auto sync is a must. Overall it's pretty nice app.
Good but... I really miss a feature to see both the salary and expenses in the Reports. With just expenses shown I can't tell if I'm in a positive balance or not at the end of the month. Also, what are the graphs for if they don't show the numbers on Y axis? I can't click on them to get the data tip as shown in screenshots here. Option to expend the category and show Tag expenses when you click on Pie chart. Cheers!
Was great until the last update. The app was great and worked perfectly until the last update (over a month ago). Ever since it started crashing every time I try to add a new entry. I've tried reloading my saved data and also starting from a fresh re install and it crashes very time. Hope you fix it
- Added server synchronization. If you login, you will not be able to restore backups.
- Changed the order of fields when entering new transaction.
- Updated how auto complete works. Might be worse than before, but I will improve on that.
