Songs About Money That Deserve a Spot on Your Playlist

Personal finances don’t inspire just bankers, pirates and mobile app developers. Sometimes, they inspire songwriters too! So put down those financial reports, loosen your tie, and shake that money maker to a couple of tunes the Toshl monster has selected for you.

Who knows, maybe some of these songs about money will make it onto your personal playlists. From there, you’re only a stream of subconsciousness away from becoming the king of budgeting.

Those crunchy G major chords are especially delicious.

At the end of October last year we wrote about WalletGear, an unofficial Toshl app made for Samsung Gear smartwatches by Anton Udal’yev. We’re very to happy to hear that he made a major upgrade to the app, so managing your finances from your wrist just got a lot better.

  • Every tab has its own colour: red for expenses, green for incomes, blue for budget
  • New description form for Gear S
  • Budget support. When you add it, all budgets are synced with server and then all calculations are going on watch: when you add expense or budget next date coming
  • Incomes support
  • You can see expenses and incomes for last month, older are removed automatically to reduce memory usage
  • Minimized traffic
  • Expenses, incomes and budgets are stored in watch memory
  • When you add something like expense it appears in list and watch performs all needed calculations without loading from server
  • Tags are syncs one time on first launch and stores on watch. You can sync it manually if you need from menu when picking tags.
  • Tags selector have index bar to allow you select it quickly

New Toshl T-shirts

When you upgrade to Toshl Pro for 3 years, you get a lower price on the subscription and we send you a nice Toshl T-shirt to thank you for your support. Plus, to be honest, we get a total kick out of knowing that there are people around the world wearing gear that we designed.

We know that what you really want to hear about right now is Toshl 2. There have indeed been too many delays and we’re sincerely sorry for the extra waiting. We’re very impatient to get it released as well and there will be more news on this soon.

Now back to the T-shirts.


New design

We made a brand new design featuring the new Toshl “lollipop” logo. It’s a very shy logo though, so it often uses a completely inconspicuous disguise of bright blue sunglasses and a white cylinder hat when out in public. That way, only it’s closest friends are able to recognise it.

Here’s a fun fact: if you look closely you’ll find the new Toshl logo inside the “old” Toshl logo. It’s as if Matryoshkas ate hallucinogenic lollipops while managing their finances, crazy I tell you, crazy! ;)


New form

Apart from the new motif, we also made a big upgrade on the T-shirts themselves. We added a women’s fit T-shirt and we now offer both women’s and men’s variations in sizes from S to XXL, all featuring an elegant and “not too deep™”  V-neck.

They’re 100% quality cotton in the 180 gram variety. We also put the T-shirts through their paces ourselves to make sure they won’t shrink or stretch too much with use. We use the screen printing technique, which helps a great deal with the longevity as well.

We hope you’ll love to wear them as much as we do.


The new T-shirts are already available when you

upgrade to Toshl Pro with the 3-year plan.

WalletGear – Use Toshl on a Samsung Gear Smartwatch

We’ve always been fans of adding your cash expenses quickly and on the move, integrated into your daily routine. But having to pull the phone out of your pocket and unlock it can cost you those precious extra few seconds when you’re standing at the cash register.

If you’re a proud owner of a Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch, that’s not a problem anymore thanks to Anton Udal’yev. Anton made WalletGear, a great looking Toshl client app for Gear 2 and Gear S watches that connect to your Toshl account using our developer API.


You can add expenses complete with tags quickly and right from your wrist. There’s also the option to list the expenses from the last month or week so you can be in control of your spending.

It’s available as a paid download for $1.5 from Samsung Apps on you smartwatch.


We haven’t been able to try it out ourselves yet, since we don’t have a current generation Samsung Gear around. We’d love to hear about your experiences with the app.
