The features of Money Watcher, explained in brief…

There is no doubt about the fact that Money Watcher is a great app for tracking and managing your income or expenditure transactions. But how does it really work? Let’s take a closer look…

The home screen basically gives you access to toggles which allow you to input your transactions. Let’s find out how we can actually add a transaction.

Adding A Transaction…

If you see the screenshot of the main screen, you will see a big column at the center which allows you to add transactions. In the below screenshot, you can see a close up of me trying to add an expenditure.

All you have to do is to enter the transactional amount under the amount tab, set the date via the drop down menu, choose the category by merely clicking on it and pressing on the Save button. You can also change the transaction that you are adding from Expense to Income type. All you have to do is to click on the Income text label next to the white Expense text label. Once the saved button is pressed, your transaction is recorded into the app.

The Added transactions in Quick Glance…

Once you add the transactions, you will be shown a bar graph detailing you your expenses for the month, week or the day. You can also see your expenses and the expense type along with its description right next to the bar graph. In the screenshot below, you can see multiple transactions being displayed on the bar graph, and you can also see tiles of recent expenditures next to the bar graph.
