You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

Keep Your Travel Expenses Under Control With TripBudget
For anyone who travels regularly, keeping track of expenses can be a real chore and often detract from the overall experience. Whether you need to keep the pen pushers in the accounts department off your back or are simply holidaying on a shoestring budget, anything that can help to simplify the costs involved with travelling is worth looking into—unless, of course, you are lucky enough to be travelling on your own private jet/yacht.
For the rest of us, however, TripBudget by XDA Forum Member Vitiy can help. TripBudget is a recently developed application that aims to take the stress out of planning the financial aspects of a trip. Despite currently still in beta, the application offers a wealth of functionality from its wonderfully sleek, stylish, and deceivingly simple interface. A wide variety of different expenses can be factored in with adjustments for sharing costs between people and tax, and these are displayed in your home currency as well as the relevant local currency with exchange rates updated every day to automatically provide you an accurate total expenditure. Cloud synchronization across multiple devices is also planned for a future update.
As well as being highly functional, the app also looks great with a dynamic header that can customized to fit in with your destination. Currently supporting both English and Russian and running on Android devices sporting version 2.3 or greater, TripBudget is available from the original application thread.
