Be Thrifty Today is a simple and secure money management app that helps you track your incomes and expenses. It is designed in a way that helps you become financially vigilant within seconds of using the app.
This is a side project that started out of bare necessities. I have had the habit of keeping an eye on my incomes and expenses for quite some time now, and I’ve used many apps on the market that have aided me for quite some time, but I always found that it fell short in one or more areas. I like to have complete control over my finances and that’s why Be Thrifty Today was born. It is a money management app for those who want complete oversight over their incomes and expenses and setting budgets too.
Inside the app, you should be able to find a simple to use User Interface that allows you to add new incomes or expenses along with assigning the transaction with a cute and colourful icon to indicate its category.
You can delete transactions made by simply swiping from right to left on the list item, and edit them by holding down the transaction. It has been designed in an intuitive way, quick to add, easy to navigate.
I do not plan to monetize this project at any time. It’s a free app without any ads and will continue to be so. I would also love to share what I have learned about building this application, that’s why I’ve made the application’s code open-source and open for contribution by anyone in the developer community.
Oh, and in line with saving the best for last... There’s also a dark mode! 🕶️
- Choose from a wide variety of categories with colourful icons that spice up the mundane task of money management, or create your own categories.
- Encrypts all sensitive user information using AES-256 so that data is unreadable by anyone except authorized applications and you.
- No pesky push notifications, that bother you in the middle of the night.
- It doesn’t require read/write access to your phone storage or your SMSes, it’s completely air-gapped and secure.
- Your data is completely secure, there is no social aspect to this application. Your finances are yours alone, and you have complete control over them.
- Set up biometric authentication in the Settings page so the app will allow access only to you and no one else using the phone. It uses your device’s biometrics, so you don’t need to set it up all over again. (available only on phones with fingerprint readers)
- This app is ad-free, and always will be.
