Review Your 2016 Finances & New Planning Feature

As 2016 comes to an end, it’s time for a look back at you finances throughout the year. Hopefully they fared much better than the ranks of legends and celebrities this year, so it will be more of a look back in joy than a look back in anger.

First, a quick tip on how to get your 2016 financial reports in 3 easy clicks. On toshl.com click on the time span on top, click the  “Custom time span” tab, then the “2016” button. Voila! All your graphs and data in Toshl will now be filtered to 2016.

See the River flow graph to know how well your finances balanced-out in 2016, expense and incomes graphs to see where you’ve spent and earned most.

 

Planning

We also have a holiday surprise this year, which will make reviewing your past finances much, much better. It’s called Planning.

It’s a brand new feature which compares your balances, expenses, incomes as well as net worth throughout the months and years. You can also compare spending on individual categories and tags.

In fact, you can filter any of the data in the Planning graph with the usual filters available in Toshl. You can thus decide to only include certain financial accounts, categories, tags or even locations.

 

 

The feature is currently in Beta testing. That means it will work well for the most part, but there might still be a glitch or two to iron out in some cases. If you come across any difficulties, please let us know so we can fix it.

Planning is free during the Beta testing period, but will be limited to Toshl Pro later on.

At the moment, Planning is available on the web app and will me making its way to the Toshl mobile apps in the future.

We hope it will come useful and we’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

You’ll find Planning (Beta) in the main menu in the web app. Or just click the link below.

Toshl for Android 2.0.13 – Monstrous Festivus Edition

The holiday season is upon us. Saint Nicholas day has recently passed and I’m sure you’re getting your Festivus pole ready for the season. It will be 2017 before you know it, and with it, time again for some New Year’s resolutions to get your finances aligned with your lifestyle. Or vice versa.

The Toshl monsters are warming up nicely, getting ready to give you a hand. Both with assessing how 2016 went financially and how to plan for the future. After all, Toshl monsters are the ones who put the “ass” into “assess”.

Some larger Toshl surprises are in store, but first off, let’s see what’s new in the latest update of Toshl for Android that we released today.

 

2.0.13 improvements
– Added expense and income sums to navigation.
– Added launcher shortcuts on Pixel phones and devices with Android 7.1.
– Added the initial sync screen, so Toshl monsters greet you whence you first log into the app.
– Added accounts and financial months swiping hint and infinite accounts swiping. In other words, the months and accounts will wobble a bit when you open the sidebar, giving you a hint about how they work.
– Updated monsters for the holidays. Find a long list of expenses or incomes, scroll all the way down and say hello!
– Updated currency formatting. Whether the currency is left or right of the amount now depends on your system settings.
– Improved entries list loading performance.
– Fixed several crashes. Although we made an exception for Toshl monsters riding bumper cars. Those can still crash. Because it’s fun. But it’s in a different dimension, so you won’t notice.

 

As always, download the latest Toshl Finance update on Google Play.

App Updates: Repeating Transactions on Android, Searching Locations by City

With version 2.0.12, the Android app can now create repeating transactions, as well as add reminders and descriptions to them.

The new update inlcudes numerous other improvements as well:

– fixed lock screen when searching for location
– searching for location by city, e.g. “Decathlon, Ljubljana”
– updated dialogs and highlighted elements color
– improved accounts/tags/categories list
– improved support for image upload on more devices
– long press on clear button on keypad now clears the whole value
– improved pull-down-to-refresh behaviour
– lots of stability improvements and minor fixes

 

Searching locations by city

Searching for a location by city is now available on Android, the web app and will be coming to the iOS app shortly.

By default, the suggested locations will be the ones that can be found around your current physical location.

You can then search for a specific location that’s around you, for example, I’ll look for the Balkan food chain called “Das Ist Valter“. It will find the one just next to my current physical location in the town of Kranj. This is how it has worked already so far.

Now, if you’re adding the location for past expenses, you can specify the city where you made that expense. In that case, I’ll write “Das Ist Valter, Ljubljana” and it will find the Valter restaurant in Ljubljana.

Don’t worry, it’s not just useful for finding “exotic” Central European čevapčiči places. It will work just as well if you look for “Starbucks, Wilmington”.

Unlock Toshl with Your Fingerprint

Keeping your financial data safe and private is important. It’s also important to make the security precautions comfortable and easy to use. If they’re too much of a hassle, people tend to turn them off and any potential security enhancement vanishes like a tub of ice cream on a depressing day.

 

That’s why unlocking the Toshl app is also possible with a fingerprint. With the latest update (2.0.8), we’re also bringing this option to the Android app.

 

Just open the app settings and set the passcode lock to ON. You’ll first be asked to enter the numerical passcode. This is just in case you’re experiencing some issues with the fingerprint scanning, but also useful on phones which do not offer the fingerprint option.

The next time you open the app, Toshl will ask you to unlock it using your fingerprint which is already saved in the Android OS, if you’ve been using this feature on your phone before. Otherwise you can adjust the fingerprints saved in the Android system settings.

Unlocking by fingerprint is available both in the Android and iOS apps with Toshl Pro.

All Toshl Finance 2.0 Apps Now Available in Italian

We aim to make the Toshl Finance apps, as well as easily managing your personal finances in general, accessible to everyone. A large part of that effort is also making sure that Toshl is translated well into the languages of Toshl users worldwide.

 

Today, we’re happy to announce that all Toshl Finance apps are now available in the Italian language.

 

If the system language on your Android or iOS mobile device is set to Italian already, the Toshl Finance app will switch automatically the next time you open it. If you’re not using Italian yet, change the general system language setting and Toshl will adapt as well.

 

In the Toshl Finance web app on toshl.com, we automatically set the language for people just signing up based on location. If you already have an account, you can also change the language in the General Settings of the web app.

 

We now support 10 languages on all platforms with Toshl 2.0 apps. Italian thus joins English, Slovenian, Chinese – simplified, Chinese – traditional, French, German, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian and Spanish in our rooster of languages.

 

Translations can be a tricky business sometimes and there’s always room for improvement both in accuracy and the tone of the language. If you’re a native Italian speaker and see a translation that could be improved upon, please send us a suggestion to support@toshl.com so we can check and hopefully make the Italian translation even better in the future.
