Android Apps: Expense Manager

If you are the kind of person who likes to keep track of everything that you are spending, it can be quite a task. One thing that can make it easier is a well designed app that you feel like using when you have to use it. Great design is generally a barrier that prevents me from using an app to its fullest. I have always wanted to be able to keep a close eye on my expenses, but could not find any app that was a joy to use.

Well, that problem is now solved! Expense Manager is an app that you would love to use owing to great design in addition to all the functionality that you could ask for in an expense management application.

As you can see, it’s a great looking app. While the design keeps you coming back to using it, the functionality enables the management of expenses in a easy way. At it very basic the app allows you to keep putting in the various expenses that you may be incurring on a day to day basis in the standard version. The paid upgrade of the app allows you to also manage the income side of things. So you can also track the outgo against the income.

The interface may remind you of Letterpress. The colours and the flatness of it all is very appealing and fits in very well with the Holo theme that defines Android 4.2. It is very pleasing to the eye and make using this app very appealing. The app settings allow you to configure most of the important attributes like the currency, reminders and categories of expenses. You can add as many expense heads as you want and the app is pre-populated with some already. Some minimal animations also add to the interface without overdoing it.

While this app is awesome, there is a pretty major shortcoming that I am hoping will be corrected in future releases. The app allows you to backup to and restore from a number of locations. But, there is no provision to sync the expense data between your devices. Any copies that you may have would be standalone ones. Personally I don’t need this feature right now, but this is something that really should be on the developer’s high priority list of things to do.

If you have an Android device then I really don’t know what might stop you from visiting the link below, and getting this app.
