The backbone of the new design is Google’s Material Design philosophy, which we’re completely sold on. The new application will adhere to Google’s design principles as much as possible, starting from the slide in menu and continuing with the big + icon to add transactions. TheCitește mai mult

Mobile apps, coming soon

Although along with CashControl.ro we launched iPhone and Android mobile apps in 2012, they were built on a framework that made them quite slow and unreliable, so we decided to completely redo them in Objective C and Java. The new applications will include internationalization, support to add tags to all transaction and multi-category expenses, as well as set the basics to support loans, reports and attached documents. The new versions of the mobile apps will be available by the end of February.
