Minor release : v0.9.1

Hello everyone,

from the version 0.9, email reports and One-To-Ones are no longer free features. I've realized that it removes features to former users of Piggy.

v0.9.1 fixes this : if you've already downloaded Piggy prior to v0.9.1, you keep these features. Otherwise, they are paid only.

Major release : v0.9.0

Hello everyone,

I've just released the version 0.9.0.

It brings the feature of weighting the shareholders so that they can stand for several parts.

I've also changed the balance between paid and free features. The app is now mature and I have decided to move advanced features to the paid version. The free version is now aimed at occasional users.

The paid options are :
  • Multicurrency
  • Shareholders weight
  • Email report
  • One-2-One counts

However, in the free version, I've modified the default € currency symbol to a generic currency symbol : ¤. Now EU and not EU users are equal.

Major release : v0.8.1

Hello everyone,

I've just released the version 0.8.1. As annouced before, all major new features are paid. v0.8.1 features the use of several currencies :
  • Define your default currency
  • Set the exchange rates with the other currencies
  • Define the default currency for the expenses of a piggy
  • Define the currency when creating/modifying an expense or a payback
I'm still listening to your comments and suggestions !

Piggy after v0.7.2

Hello everyone,

I've read with great interests your comments and suggestions for Piggy. Apparently it is really useful for some of you and that is what pleases me the most.

I think that the latest release is sufficient for common usage but misses several features you've suggested that would make it even more handy. I'll list them below. But I need to announce that I've decided to include them into a 2nd version of Piggy, that won't be free. It won't be expensive though and I will refund all of you who will ask for and will have provided me help. For instance, the 5 of you who left comments and Alessandro who made the italian locale will be refunded. Having a not-free version will push me to stay reactive and willing to improve Piggy. I hope you understand my decision.

So, here are the features I'm working on :

  • Multicurrency :

Managing several currencies for expenses in foreign countries

  • Shareholders weight :

Give a default weight for shareholders who stand for several real people, and give a specific weight for each expense

  • Global shareholders list :

Same shareholders could be reused for new piggies. Maybe I could interface it with the phone contacts list ?

  • Piggy merge :
Merge piggies with common shareholders.

Some others like pictures as expense description, desktop widget or sorted lists are also nice features but have a lower priority from my point of view. Let me know if you disagree !

Thanks again for all your suggestions.

Minor release : v0.7.2

Hello everyone,

thank you very much for all your comments and suggestions. I'll make a post about them right after this one.

This post will only give a quick overview of v0.7.2 enhancements :
  • now you'll have a warining message before deleting several items at the time (piggies, expenses, ...)
  • the softkeyboard now displays automatically when you reach a screen with fields to fill. Tell me it does not work on some fields.
