The paid update, which is being submitted in the next few days, will be called PocketMoney 2. Apple does not allow a true paid update model, so this is the way developers work around it.
It will include:
- Touch ID
- Dropbox export/backup
- Refreshed charts in the reporting function
- Summary chart in app purchase included
- Updated memo area
- Bug fixes
Amazing feature set right there, Nick! Currently I send myself daily CSV exports of my PM data by e-mail, only to save them right after in Dropbox. After that I open them as a datasource in Excel where I built an complex spreadsheet to analyse it and create reports.
So you can see how much time you save people like me by adding a Dropbox export function. It would be just perfect if we could just upload the file to a specific folder with a specific name and format with a touch of a button :)
I am all for the paid upgrades for major releases! Like many here, I have tried all other apps in the App Store and usually they lack some basic functionality PM has had for ages...
Here are some ideas for future features:
- We could use some better reporting system (for example on the web version you are planning). More specifically, it would be interesting to have some BI basic functionality, making us able to select fields, frequency, categories, subcategories, payees and so on and create different types of reports. Personally I saw some apps that were in the right track on this subject, but they still make an wrong assumption that everyone register information following the same rules. If you want I can elaborate on this.
- This is one for the long long long term: have you ever though about having some kind of integration between PM and Apple Pay? Are there any APIs from Apple that let (user-approved) apps (securely) receive and register the value of a transaction made by Apple Pay, for example? Imagine how wonderfull would that be - get your GPS, time and NFC information and you could easily predict how to fill every field from the transaction register. The user could verify it in a glance and approve it right after he made the payment with his smartphone.
