    Monetal - The Expense Tracker. Offering a clean and intuitive interface, the application makes it super easy and fun for you to track expenses.

    Monetal allows you to create several accounts for cash, credit cards, electronic money, and then log income and expenses for each account via plus and minus icons on the main screen. The process is very fast. When you’re about to pay for gasoline, for example, quickly open Monetal on the phone, click minus, type in the amount, select a tag from the list of commonly used categories, and you’ll be done before you get your change back.

    $12.00 for a lifetime membership?

    I don't see how this app even rates a membership. I paid $2.99 for the premium version of Account Tracker by Graham Haley even though the free version was just as functional because of the continued support over the 7+ years I've been using it.

    Another suggestion: allow reordering of accounts rather than auto-sorting alphabetically. This is something that has bothered me over the years with a lot of other applications.

    Good luck!

    Hello, yes, for a lifetime membership. But you can wait until end of january there will be a sale with 50% off, i will post an update here.

    I am using Monetal about 6 years since end of 2012, and I want to tell you that it's really cool to have all this data (~750kB now including notes) in an instant. I don't have any plans to cancel or stop development, it's a hobby, not a primary job. Also my wife and some other friends uses Monetal so I can't just drop everything =)

    Yes, you are right about reordering, i definitely do it in future, but so far I need to implement more general things like recurring transactions, budgets and etc. Now if you have more than 3 accounts you can group them in wallets, just hold Total in main view and follow instructions. Truly I have an article about wallets but its in russian, I will translate it in a few days.

    ps. I plan to write a converters from different apps so if you like i can take a look to yours, because i understand that nobody wants to drop 7 years of finance history.

    The one I use has everything I need and a lot I don't use, including budgets and recurring transactions, so I can't really see myself spending money (especially a subscription) to switch to something else that has fewer features.

    The reason I commented was more to share my thoughts on you charging a subscription rather than a one-time purchase price (or even offering a free version) for something that isn't quite fully baked just yet.

    I appreciate your dedication/enthusiasm though!

    Oh, yes, I got you. But subscriptions are just an option along with one time payment, and also many people uses free version even without knowledge that its limited somehow. Monetal doesn't ask user to buy premium or demonstrate app status until you are trying to enable some paid feature, and it also doesn't have any ads.

    For me subscription gives an opportunity to pay for particular benefit. I even would like to see subscriptions for home stuff and tech products, becauses in this case marketing not so important compared to product quality and usage experience.

    This price is also about supporting project for those who see its potential and wants project to grow.
    Anyway thank you for sharing your thoughts!
