    touch1979's Review of iXpenseIt
    This app is the numero uno expense tracker for the iPod touch and iPhone. iXpenseIt has great features such as the report generator that make it a complete app to record and monitor expenses, better than many similar apps for PC and other PDAs.

    In addition, iXpenseIt is also fully customizable and users can change items such as the password protection, mileage, expense types, as well as currency conversion and VAT/GST. Budgets can also be set to Simple or Detailed, with the latter having individual budget figures for each category. For USD4.99, this app is certainly one of the best deals on the App Store!

    In short, iXpenseIt is the most complete mobile expense app and this explains why Phil Baker (San Diego Transcript) commented that ""Phones finally are becoming computers". With iXpenseIt, you can never go wrong with tracking your expenses and budgets!


    Rating

    Interface: 10/10 - very intuitive and easy-to-see interface.

    Price: 8/10 - at USD4.99, iXpenseIt is great value for money but it can be pricey for those from countries with weak forex rates agaunst the US$.

    Usefulness: 9/10 - iXpenseIt is an expense tracker that is great for any1 who keeps a tight lid on monthly expenses, whether a student or working person. The categories are customizable and the reports feature (can be sorted according to day, week, month, category, etc.) is something that I don't find in many other expense apps out there... Of course the huge feature choices can be mind-boggling to some of you looking for a more straight-forward expense app though!

    Overall: 9/10

    Nice review. I recently bought a very similar app called BudgetCare. Doesn't look as useful or as good as this one but had many of the same features. What they really need to add is a data backup/sync feature to a desktop app.

    Any crash issues wit this as BudgetCare crashes back to the Springboard at times when saving a new transaction? The transaction is saved but I have to restart the app... very inconvenient...

    Mate, i agree with u on the data backup/sync part... They really should have a desktop conduit like the one that syncs the iPod with MS Outlook via iTunes...

    And as for crash issues, iXpenseIt does hang once in a while when I open up the month-view... Otherwise, the program is doing pretty well as the developers have been releasing updates on a frequent basis, to solve buggy issues...

    Stability seems similar to Budgetcare, though they haven't released a single update since I purchased. It hasn't been all that buggy so apart from a sync tool conduit there's probably not much call for updates.

    Hola touch1979! Great review. It has perfect spelling and everything. You might want to add a few other ratings to the review, for example interface, usefulness, etc. I noticed how you used a tiny bit of Spanish in your review. Might want to translate it and put it into brackets for those that don't understand.

    I agree completely it is the best budget manager around. The best feature being backup/restore of the entire database. It also features a password protection system. I purchased it when it got released and I never regret it!!!

    Stu, unfortunately iXpenseIt has no sync backup... I think that's the advantage of Budgetcare as compared with iXpenseIt, although how come BC does not have any updates?

    iXpenseIt updates their app quite frequently in fact, at least once or twice a month!
