Catamount – January 2016 Update

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

This will be the first post in a series of monthly update posts on the status of app updates, bug fixes an added features.

Support emails are now being answered within 24 hours. The majority are answered within hours, if not minutes (or immediately in some cases). Thanks to everyone in the forums who contribute as well; this really helps out. I direct users to the forums on a regular basis, and I have see registration numbers go up.

Completed Items
CheckPlease! for Android and iOS was updated last month. The Android version did not see many changes, other than a new ad server for the Lite version, and some changes to make it compatible with newer versions of Android. CheckPlease! for Android now requires OS version 4.2 Jellybean or greater.

CheckPlease! for iOS saw a graphical overhaul. While some users did not appreciate the user interface change, the functionality stayed the same. The old version of CheckPlease! made heavy use of images for backgrounds, buttons, text, etc. This works great when dealing with one screen size, but does not scale well to different display sizes and resolutions. A flatter and modern approach was taken, and I will continue to evolve and tweak it.

PocketMoney Lite – Android was update to use a new ad server, and the required Android version was increased to 4.2. Thanks so Art and Sean for their help in testing, and for the list of things that need to be fixed and enhanced.

In The Works
PocketMoney (Lite and full) for Android will be updated either this week or next week.

PocketMoney for iOS is also being worked on. This update will not see a change to the user interface. So basically the screens will still appear to be stretched. This update will bring a fix to the dreaded crash when switching accounts, and also (just as dreaded) the repeating transaction overdue popup. The update will also now require iOS 8 or greater. As of this post, 71% of the users are on iOS 9, and 21% on iOS 8.

The plan is to submit this update to Apple on or by the 31st of this month.

Upcoming Plans
PocketMoney – iOS will be updated to use auto layout/size classes. This will make the app scale and look so much better on larger screens. The reports/categories report will be fixed as well. February is mostly dedicated to PocketMoney – iOS, so expect to see a new feature or two (taken from forum suggestions) in the February update.

I will try and get the website updated sometime this month, mainly just cleanup. There are a lot of broken links, and the apps that are not currently available need to be removed.

There are no plans to update PocketMoney – Desktop in the next few months, but it is penciled in for this Summer.

Thanks to everyone for their support and encouragement!

PocketMoney 1.2 for Android – calculator, themes, keep the change

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Version 1.2 of PocketMoney for Android has added several very popular features that are in the iOS version of PocketMoney.

Themes – pick Black, Blue, Green, Gray, Purple, Coffee color themes.

Calculator Keypad for currency amount input fields – Large numbers make it easier to enter amounts. Also, at times you’ll find your self wanting to do some math to figure out how much the transaction is going to me. The integrated number keyboard/calculator let’s you do it inline with support for the basic mathematical operators of addition, subtraction, multiplications, and division.

Keep The Change – does your bank let you automatically round and transfer the difference to another account for you to help you with your savings? PocketMoney lets you choose any amount to round to a whole dollar or even partial dollars like any multiple of 10 cents or 25 cents.
