★ "...this app is a dream come true for someone looking for a quick and easy way to keep track of their daily income/expenses! " - AppShouter.com

★ Featured in Macworld!

The most unique personal finance app on iOS.

PaperFinance is a personal finance app intended to provide every feature needed in an expense and income tracker, without the overcomplexity and lifelessness found in most money apps. Easily input and track your expenses, income, accounts, categories, and budgets, without getting bogged down in bloat.

What makes PaperFinance different?

★ It is the only finance app to have a full swipe interface.

★ It strives to make finance-tracking as easy and intuitive as possible!

★ It continuously improves and innovates. The functionality of the app has nearly tripled since its original release, and we're only on the third update!

★ It innovates and dares to think differently. PaperFinance has many features that no other app has, such as PDF export.

★ We listen! We have responded to every user feedback ever submitted, and about 50% of all feature requests have made it into the app within two months.

What's New in Version 2.1

Version 2.1 is only a minor update, but includes six new features and over 25 changes! As always, we are committed to providing high-quality improvements in every update, with complete transparency in what we changed.

★ Features

1. BACKUP/RESTORE OVERHAUL: The most comprehensive backup and restore system ever. Backups now save directly to the device. New Manage screen allows you to manage your backups completely on the device, no computer needed. Restore in four ways: straight from the device, via email attachment, via iTunes, or via WiFi.

2. BUDGET RECURRENCE CONTROL: Users now have complete control to create either one-shot budgets or recurring budgets. Note: Budgets previously were auto-recurring, so all pre-existing budgets will be set to recur after updating.

3. BUDGET ROLLOVER: Recurring budgets can now optionally rollover their unused balances into future periods.

4. FOUR NEW RECURRENCE OPTIONS: Semi-Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Yearly, and Yearly. Note that options such as Semi-Monthly are fully flexible according to the start date!

5. PASSCODE MULTITASK SUPPORT: Passcode updated to support app switching. Unlike other apps, PaperFinance's implementation allows you to choose your passcode style: on every app switch, or on full restart.

6. iTUNES FILE SHARING: PaperFinance files can now be managed from within iTunes.

★ Improvements

7. Optimized "Categories" report loading. Greatly improved load time of report by 50+%.
8. Optimized Home Screen data loading. Greatly improved speed of all mass-entry create, edit, and delete actions.
9. Optimized account balance calculations. Greatly improved speed of all screens displaying account balances.
10. Optimized category data calculations. Greatly improved speed of all screens displaying category data.
11. Optimized Budgeting Screen data loading. Greatly improved speed of budget calculations.
12. Optimized Reporting Screen data loading. Slightly improved speed of all reports.
13. Optimized Reporting Screen search algorithm. Slightly improved speed of searches.
14. Reporting Screen control bar icons updated to high-resolution imagery for iPhone4's.
15. Added a final row to the Budget History Screen that tells you how many budget periods passed beyond the first 20.
16. Budgeting Screen weekly and monthly allowance calculations made more accurate. The resulting numbers are a little less user-friendly, but are actually much more precise.

★ Bug Fixes

17. Reporting Screen: Issue causing transactions on the last date of the date period to be excluded from the report.
18. Budgeting Screen: Issue causing some transactions with the same date as the budget's start date to be excluded from the budget.
19. Budgeting Screen: Issue causing the daily allowance calculation to be based on the incorrect number of days.
20. Budget Categories Screen: Issue causing table to scroll up or down when in the middle of the table.
21. Budget Categories Screen: Issue causing table to scroll to the row that you just checked.
22. Crash: Fixed crash when choosing "Delete All Entries" for a recurring transaction.
23. Budgeting Screen: Issue causing Budgeting Screen not to refresh after editing an entry.
24. iPad: Fixed all visual bugs. iPad experience should now mirror the iPhone/iPod experience.

★ Misc

25. Budget Info: Budget History changed to be available only for recurring budgets. Non-recurring budgets now jump straight to the Budget Transactions screen (List View).
26. Backup email functionality is now accessed via the Manage feature.
27. Recurrence icons have been changed to gray paper stacks instead of circle icons. This was done to maintain icon consistency with the budget recurrence icons.

Our next update, version 3.0, will be the biggest ever. Stay tuned!

4/5 stars

Love it

Would be nice if it shows what next weeks spend or next day I need for my spends!

5/5 stars

This is the one!

The latest update means it should have 6 stars :)

Truly professional product. I've had a lot of contact with the developer since the first version and it's clear that he tries continually to make this product intuitive and worthy of the praise seen here. Suggestions I've made have been considered and promptly accepted or rejected always with a good, reasoned explanation. I expect this product will be well nurtured for a long time to come.

This is the one I keep and use on my phone. While he's (hopefully) developing the iPad version I've spent a lot of time on my iPad trying to use Pocket Money, HomeBudget, and others. While all have their strengths and weaknesses I guarantee that I'll use the iPad version of Paper Finance as soon as it's available!

0/5 stars

Paper Finance

This is not a bad product although it does need rather a lot of work to really make it useful and to correct errors.
Useful things to do:
Opening screen show ALL balances for ALL accounts
Add budgets for the month and YTD specifying the starting and ending dates for the report
Provide drill down for all summaries by category - when you get round to putting them in.

Budget weekly allowance is wrong it's actually the close to the Monthly allowance (but it's not)!
Also the amount is incorrect - does not pick up all the transactions for the period in question
If you add an additional budget - being the same as the one above - it reports different numbers!
Monthly reports on all accounts do not equal the amounts reported in the Budget report for the same periods
Without stated balances you can't check to see if the program is working correctly.
