Sharing is the Focus for ExpenseShare 1.4

ExpenseShare 1.4 offers new ways to collaborate with the people you are sharing expenses with.

  • Send your ExpenseShare activity by email or AirDrop.  Your participants can load it on their device and interactively see the group expenses, activity summary, reports etc.
  • Your participants can add their own transactions and send updates back to you.  Their added transactions can be merged back into activity on your device.
  • Also export to any iOS document provider – iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, etc.  You can use this as a way to save an archive of your Activity, or as a way to transfer an Activity to another device with access to a shared folder.

ExpenseShare Available in the App Store

rounded_AppIcon120x120As of March 2, ExpenseShare is available in the Apple App Store! ExpenseShare is an iPhone / iPad app for tracking spending that will be shared within a group of participating parties.  It has a flexible system for defining a default arrangement for how expenses are shared, but allows for customization of this on a transaction-by transaction basis. It also keeps track of who owes money, and who is owed money.  It supports a number of useful features, including multi-currency, filling in details based on geo-location, and attaching images to transactions.  It is easy to use, and entering a transaction can be as little as entering an amount and payee.   ExpenseShare is designed for use by a single record-keeper within the group, which allows data to be kept within the iOS device.
