GotExpenses: Tracking Made Easy
A visually stunning expense tracking application
GotExpenses is the only application for iPhone/iPod Touch which allows you to track your expenses by category, payment and tag; fully customizable to your needs. Monthly overview and breakdown of categories, payments and tags are instantly updated and presented to you when an expenditure is added, updated or removed. With single tap, you can list expense records of a category, payment or tag – It’s truly easy and convenient!
GotExpenses is a slick app which enables you to keep a track of how much you are spending verses your earnings in a month . What this app also does is give you configurable categories to break up your data and tag support to further filter down your data and not just for a single purpose, you can have as many books for whatever you care to use them for.
Each book/screen is divided into two, the lower half being a list view with tabs for category, payment and tags along with option for adding items to each and to view All Expenses screen for the particular month. The top half of the screen displays a break down of your spendings along with a pie chart, above this is a rather large title and navigation arrows, while perfectly functional I do feel that swiping between months would be a better choice and put the space to better use. One of the strongest features about this app is the ability to Export your data into a Google Docs spreadsheet, giving you each months data stored safely online.
My problems with this application is, to start with there is no easy way of entering your wages, the trick here is to create your own category for just your wages whatever your source may be and input that amount. This will set up your balance which is taken as cash but this really needs to be addressed as it isn’t a very elegant solution and not good if you are not on a regular income. Another problem I have which I touched upon earlier is screen usage. I have rather large fingers and not the best at tapping on iPhone/iPod Touch screens , using this app hasn’t been as smooth as I would like, for example having the delete button right below the new expense button could be frustrating if you’re in a rush, this flaw is also repeated in the main screen with previous month arrow and the button to take you to the expense book list. One solution to this would be to have the tabs at the bottom of the screen and the month bar where the tabs bar was.
GotExpenses is a highly functional and handy application which in this day and age is a welcome addition to springboards everywhere.
