If you’re like most people, you check your smartphone at least 50 times a day — looking at everything from text messages and work emails to weather alerts and sports scores. But as many have discovered, your smartphone can help you keep tabs on your finances. Managing money, sticking to a budget and even handling investment decisions are easier than even before with today’s crop of personal finance apps.
We wanted to find out what apps, if any, couples use for managing their finances, what
they like or dislike about those apps, what experience they have while making finance
entries, and to gain a more holistic understanding of users experiences.
Some of our key findings:
1. Most couples mostly add Expense rather than Income.
2. As the target audience were couples we found that they wanted their expense/income to be kept separated but combined at a one place.
3. Most of the expenses/incomes are recurring (every day/week/month/year).
4. Couples wants to see a forecast of the upcoming month/year on basis of their saved finance data.
Creating a new entry
Most couples mostly add Expense rather than Income. so we just place a single button in the thumb area as (New Entry) to create an entry, after that by default Expenses is selected, user can change the entry type to Income by a button beside Expense.
Separated Events at one place
Couples wanted their expense/income to be kept separated from each other but combined at a one place, hence comes Chat view in the frame.
Most of the expenses/incomes are recurring (every day/week/month/year). So while creating a new entry user have an option to make that entry recur daily/weekly/monthly/yearly.
