Costs Keeper Helps Keep Track of Your Budget on Your Windows Device
Now that the gift giving season is over and we have all (hopefully) received presents we’ve been wishing for, there are probably a lot of folks who’ve been gifted with a brand new Windows device and are wondering what exactly to do with it. If you are on a budget or are trying to reign in their spending habits, you may want to check out Costs Keeper.
Developed by XDA Forum Member filfat, Costs Keeper is an app compatible with the Windows 8 and RT platforms, and it and is essentially what one expects of it: a costs keeper. The app presents itself in a very typical, Metro manner that’s very clean and simple, with a user interface that’s very navigable and touch-friendly.
On the main screen, you’re presented with the all-important spending tracker that displays the total amount of money spent in a given time period, what category the expense is under, and the amount of the transactions. Since the app is still in its alpha phase, you can only see the monthly expenses, with daily, weekly and yearly tracking to be added in the future.
For a more detailed view, tap the ‘Transactions’ tab, and you’ll be able to see all the expenses of the selected time period and any related information such as date, category, and name. Three bright and clear buttons to the right allow you to add income and expenses, as well as export transactions if you wish to do so.
Although in its alpha phase, Costs Keeper is an app that seems otherwise. Despite some missing features, it’s simple, well designed, ad-free, and promises much in the future. If you would like to check out the app, visit the application thread for more details.
