“PocketMoney es hasta la fecha en nuestra humilde opinión la mejor aplicación de finanzas creada para el iPhone, donde se pueden registrar todas sus cuentas, tarjetas de crédito y poder llevar su presupuesto mensual en tiempo real.”

I’ve updated the video tutorials in the PocketMoney Help/Video Tutorial page to include a new video tutorial of using Quicken 2007 for Mac OS X with PocketMoney. It covers getting all your data from Quicken into PocketMoney, creating a Recent Changes filter, and exporting the recent changes back to Quicken for Mac OS X.
And, I’d like to send out a special thanks Orlando Santos/Streamhawk for all of his help to help work out the kinks this process with his feedback in the forums, directly, and also beta testing for me, as well as, all of the other users in the forums and beta testers who help make PocketMoney beta with each revision.
I tried making an application for Muslims and others who have cultural or religious issues with pigs that would open PocketMoney in a no-pig mode so they wouldn’t need to see the PocketMoney pig.
Alas, Apple rejected it because it contained minimal user functionality. Of course it did, the application had one purpose and fulfilled that purpose superbly. Anymore functionality, then the functionality that it was designed for would be useless.
The solution? Add more user functionality… there are dozens of flashlights on AppStore, so now PocketMoney Launcher is PocketMoney Launcher/Flashlight. By going into Settings, the user can put the application in Flashlight mode.
I’ve always wanted a flashlight on the phone. All of the other flashlights do too many things and take up too much memory with all of their confusing features.
[Update: Apple rejected the Launcher/Flashlight. So other Flashlights are okay, but not if you are trying to give the Muslim community a solution so they don't have to touch a pig. Apple's response is add more functionality or release it as Ad Hoc. But Ad Hoc only works if you have less than 100 users, but there are more than 100 Muslims that own iPhones that want to use PocketMoney - so Ad Hoc distribution is not viable - not to mention I have to recompile the application each time a new user gets added to the Ad Hoc list.]

11 months later, I Am Poor makes it into the iPhone App Store-San Francisco Chronicle
MPG version 1.2 has been approved by Apple for AppStore. Version 1.2 fixes bugs when running on iPhone/iPod Touch 3.0 OS and updated some of the graphics.
• ’I Am Poor’ sets new record for the longest approval time on AppStore at 11 months and 6 days.
• ‘I Am Poor’ started out as the poor man’s version of the former $999.99 application called ‘I Am Rich’.
The mac & cheese, Ramen noodles, and tuna is my artistic rendition of what poor college students eat with their limited funds.
The icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this.
But, we all would like to get a little richer so tapping on the info button will let you read on old classic by P.T. Barnum called ‘Art of Money Getting’ to give you some sage advice to help you increase your wealth.
Barnums “Golden Rules for Making Money” found in ‘Art of Money Getting’ will pay for ‘I Am Poor’ many times over.
The only catch to the app is that you need the perseverance to catch the info button.
PocketMoney 2.3.1 is now available on AppStore.
MPG version 1.2 has been submitted to the AppStore for review.
Changes in version 1.2:
• bug fixes for iPhone OS 3.0
• new graphics for vehicle list view
• notes for the MPG transaction get posted to PocketMoney
