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.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
