We have pushed out the final changes for the official release and Budget is ready for primetime. Most of the changes were spit and polish, we needed to make sure we had dotted all the “i”s and crossed all the “t”s.
The beta started in earlier November and it’s been an eye opening two months. Our users helped us improve the App to a level I don’t think we could have got it to on our own.
We have streamlined updating your balances. The first step in the workflow is updating your balances. Previously you needed to do this per account, the new set balances screen allows you to set all your current balances in one go.
Forgot your password?
It turns out we had failed to implement the forgot password function – you could do it directly by the API but that option isn’t suitable for many users. Forgot password now exists; hopefully you never need it but if you do, creating a new password is one email away.
The monthly summaries have all been tweaked but more importantly, the summary for the current month now only calculates the total income and expense for “unpaid” budget items. This should make it easier to reconcile with the projections.
Lots of Content
We have added a Budgeting section to help get you started and added additional help pages. We also took the opportunity to rework the menu, navbar and footer for all the added content.
We have more planned but are going to shift our focus more towards Budget Pro. There will be a small release at the start of February with a couple of new features and of course we will fix any issues we spot in the meantime.
Budget Pro is due to be released in the first half of this year. We have a lot to do and have learned so much from getting Budget ready for all of you.
