Version 3.0 of the Travel Expenses app will soon be available on Google Play.
This version has a new feature: Rated items.
Rated items are items which have a value (such as reimbursements for mileage). You set the rate and then simply specify the amount of miles or kilometers when you're adding expenses. Of course you can use this feature for other things than miles or kilometers. Ounces, grams and kilograms will also work. Liters and gallons too.
The Travel Expenses app will not contain any rated items by default in order to keep the database and the size of the app to a minimum. However, once you start up the app, you will be able to download pre-configured rated items from the Travel Expenses website. You simply have to choose your country, and the app will display a list of rated item that you can install.
For now users in the following countries will be able to download and install pre-configured rated items
The United States of America
If you are a user in a country which is not found above (Australia, India, Austria, Germany, Netherlands etc..), you can send me a request and I'll add the required information to the download database. Please use the e-mail address of your Google Play account (the one used to purchase the app) to contact me, or your request will be ignored. I'll need the following information (It doesn't have to be in english)
The name of the rated expense: (for example: IRS-standard mileage. 0.55 dollars per mile)
The rate : 0.55 dollars/mile
The value of a constant if there is one: (for France if you go over 5001 kilometers in a calendar year there's a constant added. 845 euro, and the rate per kilometer changes)
As always, you'll be able to create your own rated expense items, delete and modify. Simply go the the setup screen and scroll down to the "Rated Items" section.
Version 3.0 is still in the testing phase, but it will be available soon. No later than the 10th of January.
Version 2.5 of the Travel Expenses app is now available on Google Play.
This version is made up of two enhancements and two bug fixes.
If the app was not updated chronologically, the updates to the database would not be applied properly. For instance, if the user upgraded the app from version 1.5 directly to 2.4, then the app would crash on startup because of an inconsistent database. This issue has now been fixed.
If the android system returned a currency code which was invalid, the app would crash. This issue has been fixed.
When the user is entering information in the "trip concerning" text box on the trip details screen, a list of corresponding recent entries is displayed, and the user may select one
When the user is entering a comment of an expense item, a list of recent corresponding comments is displayed, and the user may select one
Version 2.3 of the Travel Expenses app is now available on Google Play.
This version of the app will include the following new features:
For an expense item, the user will be able to select the currency used for the payment. By default the currency is the last currency selected, hence when adding several items in the same currency, the user will not have to reselect the currency for each item
The user will also be able to select which tender type was used for a payment. It can be either credit card, debit card, check or cash.
