Smart Expense Tracker – First Android app from Urva TechLabs

Hi All,

Here we are launching our first android application, its live on Google Play Store :

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.UTL.smartExpenseTracker

What it does :

– Almost every Indian bank and credit card services send transaction details to customers phone as an SMS, so we tried to help you to track expense through parsing those messages.

– However its not limited to track expenses only through SMS, you can add expenses as much as you can.

– So dont get confused at the end of the month calculating which thing covered most of your budget, just use “Smart Expense Tracker” without paying anything.

Dashboard

– Dashboard helps you to manage everything on single page, you can add expense, manage categories, manage SMS parsing and see history of your expenses.

– On Dashboard, Expense quick view panel displays expenses per categories, you can select period of days to see expenses only for that period.

Add Expense

Adding expense to “Smart Expense Tracker” is really easy :

– Add your amount
– Add optional notes for your expense (we recommend you add, as it will help you to recollect why the expense was made)
– You can change date and time for the expense, default time will be current time of device
– Select a category for your expense
– And save!

Expense History

– The History page will help you to scrutinize your expenses
– By default you see expenses made “Today”, you can change the period of expenses, using custom mode you can see maximum 60 days expenses on this page
– You can group expenses by category or date
– We have beautiful graphs to visualize your expenses, each category will have their own color code
– By tapping on any expense entry, you can see more details of that expense, you can edit and remove expense from the same details panel.
– If the expense entry was made with SMS parsing, you can see the SMS content from details panel too.

SMS Parsing

– SMS Parsing simplified : You can restrict the app from parsing every SMS you receive, you can use either SMS Templates or more smarter Hot Words. So it will ask you to add expense only the SMS content matches the template and/or hotwords.

– You can enable or disable all or particular hotwords or templates parsing at any point of time.

Hot Words :

– When SMS is received and it contains any of the Hot Words added to the application, it will try parsing the content, and if any amount is found in text, it will ask you to save this to “Smart Expense Tracker”

Templates :

– Templates are very helpful to parse messages perfectly, we will not guess the amount from SMS, but it will have exact amount, so you just have to press “Save” when “Smart Expense Tracker” asks you to save expense.

If your XYZ bank sends you transaction message in this format :

Your a/c 00000000 is debited Rs 10000 on 2014-02-04 A/c balance is Rs 100000.00 Info: Payment Through Online Gateway

Just replace the amount with “@@” and its ready to go :

Your a/c 00000000 is debited Rs
@@ on 2014-02-04 A/c balance is Rs 100000.00 Info: Payment Through Online Gateway

So when you receive next message from bank :

Your a/c 00000000 is debited Rs 1234.56 on 2014-02-04 A/c balance is Rs 98765.44 Info: Payment Through Online Gateway

“Smart Expense Tracker” will ask you to save expense like :

– You can add as many categories as you want, color code them to easily identify
– You can change category name and color at any time and it will be reflected everywhere
– We have smart category removal
– Inactive categories will no longer be shown while adding or editing an expense
