Amounts 2.1 – Now Available for Free!

A small update to Amounts came out this week that is making the base app now available for free! All existing users will keep their upgraded features, but now you will be able to try the app before you buy, and the pro upgrade is available as an in-app purchase.

I’m now looking into some cool new features for the next few months, namely syncing and Universal support so that you will be able to view and modify your data on an iPad!

Amounts 2, In Review

After nearly two years in (Part time) development, Amounts 2 has finally been sent off to Apple for review. This will be a free update to all users, and I think everyone will love it. The UI has been overhauled to support the new screen sizes, icons have been updated, and now the app supports all the latest iPhone hardware features including 3D Touch shortcuts and Peek/Pop. There is also an Apple Watch app for those of you sporting an Apple Watch this year.

Review should hopefully be completed by the end of this week, look out for more information on this blog.

Amounts 1.0.3 Bugfix Update

It has been a while since I have updated this page! I just wanted to let people know that there was a change to sqlite in iOS 8.2 that has caused issues with Amounts. I’ve just submitted a small bugfix update to Apple that should hopefully go out next week.

In the meantime I will give you a little update on me, a year ago I accepted a mobile development position at TelTech. They are a great company building awesome telephony software, personally I have worked on both TapeACall and SpoofCard, so check those out if you need an awesome call recording or call spoofing app. I really love working with the team there and we have some great new software in the works.

I have also been working on a huge amounts update that I started work on over a year ago. It includes new location based features, an iOS 8 widget, new visuals, new searching options and more! It is really pretty awesome and I think everyone will like it. I’ll be posting new information on this soon!

Dogemate Bugfix & Features Update

It has only been a few days since Dogemate was released, but dogeapi.com has made a slight change to their API that broke the USD price checker. Yesterday I submitted version 1.1.0 for an expedited review so hopefully it will be available soon. The new version adds both currency conversion and two new Bitcoin exchange options.

Just hold tight, a fix is on the way!

UPDATE: The app just went into review yesterday, but unfortunately it has received the dreaded “app requires additional time for review.” So in the meantime the bitcoin prices are still working.

UPDATE 2: The app is still in review, but dogeapi has reverted the API so USD prices should be working in the app store again!

Dogemate released, iBuzz update and Amounts news!

dogecoinSo I have been doing a little random work lately, first of which is Dogemate. Dogemate is a super simple Dogecoin price tracker for the iPhone and soon Android as well. Just open the app and see how much your doge is worth in USD or BitCoin. Don’t know what Dogecoin is? It is a cryptocurrency similar to BitCoin – a huge network of computers that process a bunch of hashes to ensure transactions are secure and valid. It is basically like cash for the internet age.

The next item is the iBuzz update. iBuzz is just how it sounds, a buzzer app. Lost the buzzer to Taboo or other board games? Replace it with this free app! This version cleans up a lot, the app is now designed for iOS 7. All the sounds have been redesigned to loop perfectly and sound better along with adding a few new items. There is also now an option to remove ads if you find you use the app a lot.

The last and biggest news item is Amounts 1.1.0 – this is going to be a huge update! I am not going to announce the new features just yet, but they are quite awesome. For now I just have a screenshot with the improved UI – it feels a bit lighter with a bit more negative space. I am really excited about this update and I thinkyou will really enjoy the new features.

So that is all the news for today!

Amounts Full Text Search!

Full text search in AmountsSo I have once again been working on making Amounts the definitive expense tracker for iOS! The latest feature is full text search. This will allow you to find old transactions extremely quickly – you can search by category name or description. At the top of the search bar there is a header row that will give you the total of all the returned transactions. So if you want to see how much you spent at just Starbucks now you can!

In a future update I will be adding some time based parameters so that you can look at just certain time periods like the previous week or month. But for now you can quickly get through your transactions.

I also made a few speed optimizations – the main transaction list now doesn’t load all transactions by default, when you scroll to the bottom (Which should show around two to three months of transactions) you get the option to load all if you need to see older ones.

I still have some big things planned for upcoming builds, so stay tuned!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It is the end of the year again and it has been a great one for me, I hope 2013 has been good to you as well. To celebrate, TargetTap is on sale for 99 cents, so if you don’t have it you should definitely pick it up.

And for those of you getting started on your New Years resolutions, Amounts can help you get a jump on your finances for 2014. I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday this year! Merry Christmas to you all and see you next year!

Amounts 1.0.1 in the App Store!

Amounts 1.0.1 has been approved and released into the App Store. This is mainly a small bug fix update, but it does include a major new feature: CSV export! You can now easily export all transactions or just transactions in a specific category (Say business expenses for example) for all time or a specific date range.

Amounts, available now!

Amounts-120Amounts is now available worldwide! I have spent the past few months working on this app and I really like it. It is my take on personal expense tracking. I wanted something that was fun and easy to use, extensible yet still looked great and I think I came pretty close.

I have plenty of updates in mind for this app, so stay tuned for new features coming in. In the mean time you can buy it now in the App Store for $2.99, here.

New app, new site, new logo!

Hey everyone! It has been quite a while since my last update. Recently I have been quite busy working on a new app and also working on some contract work as well. But I finally have some news to post.

First would like to announce my newest app, Amounts! Amounts is a personal expense tracker. You enter your daily transactions as you make them and place them into your own personalized categories. Later on you can examine how you have been spending over the past few days, weeks or months. It is designed for iOS 7 and I think it is really great. If you are looking to take control of your spending you should definitely check it out. It is already approved and will be released next week, on Thursday December 11th.

Next is the new site. I have wanted to redesign it for a while, but now I finally did. The new design is responsive so it works beautifully on mobile and desktop. I really wanted to go with something clean and simple and this is what I ended up with.

The last thing is the new logo, or should I say updated logo. I tweaked the colors, simplified the shapes and got rid of unnecessary lines. Overall it just fits in with the cleaner look that I am implementing across the board.

So that is all for today. I will be posting updates more frequently now that my site is actually functional, so be on the look out!
