Keep to a Budget with Receipt for Android

Keeping to a budget is difficult, especially when it’s pay-day and there’s that one thing that you just want to get your hands on: be it a new phone, or those headphones, or even a pair of shoes. We also hate calculating simple maths in our head and jotting them down on a budgeting notepad. Well, good news people, because now we can get our Android phones to do all that for us!

An app called Receipt by XDA Forum Member Bogdan-xd allows us to keep to a budget easily, and its concept and functionality are simple and practical. The app consists of 3 main components: a virtual receipt, a history, and statistics.

The virtual receipt allows you to jot down what you need to purchase, the quantity, and the price. It calculates the total amount needed to be spent. The total is compared to a user-set budget of x amount, and alerts you with a pleasant red color when the budget has been exceeded. Items on the list can be crossed out, allowing for real time budget keeping.

The history simply displays all receipts you’ve made, the time and date receipt was made, whether the budget was exceeded or not, and by how much. Statistics displays a graph of your spending, average amount of spending, and all grouped yearly, monthly, weekly, or daily. There’s also an option to turn on notifications for when budget has been exceeded.

Bogdan-xd has done a noteworthy job developing this app, packing a tedious activity into a simple and intuitive app for Android that’s also pleasant to the eye. For more details, visit the original thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
