Ratings and Reviews
Works as expected
Downloaded this app and entered some electric bills as well as some sales data and it did generate a forecast that looked fine to me. Emailed off this forecast as well from inside the app, was also able to change the forecast. Overall works well did not face any quality issues or crashes.
Clean interface works well
Clean and intuitive, like the fact that I can see patterns in the bills visually, liked the forecast also. Gives 12 months of forecasts, export all format matches my current format for tracking bills in spreadsheets so that is a plus, personally I prefer bar charts instead of plots, but thats a minor thing.
Great App !!
Downloaded and tried out this app. Installs and works as expected. Didn't encounter any issues or crashes. Interface is clean and user-firendly and the forecast makes a lot of sense. Is a great, easy to use tool to curb your profligate spending habits. Recommend everybody to try it out.
