Launch of Desktop Application – Track Every Coin

Posted on 03 April 2011 by Vikram

Track Every Coin now has a Desktop Application. The desktop application is a standalone application that can be used without internet connection to keep track of your income, expense, split bills and company reimbursements.

If you travel a lot and need the app on your laptop/netbook or like to have your financial information on your desktop, then the Track Every Coin Desktop Application is for you!

The App also has an option to sync with your web account at Track Every Coin for data backup. If you change your computer your data is always intact.

We have built the app with Adobe AIR, that makes it platform independent. It works on Windows, Mac and Linux.

You can download the application by visiting our homepage: www.trackeverycoin.com, click on “Get Desktop App” and then click on Install now. Here are a couple of screenshots:

Go on and download the app for your computer. Download from here.

Track Every Coin the big picture…

Posted on 14 July 2010 by Vikram

With lot of questions on what features we would have in the future, we thought it will be a good idea to show a sneak peek of the future features  to our users. The following features will be rolled out one by one…

Notice the following:

  1. There are 3 more tabs that will come up; Dashboard, Planning and Events.
  2. Settings button on the top right (next to log off) will contain all the user profile (change password, etc)
  3. Notice the “Edit” next to Category-wise spending -> this will help you edit and change your categories.
  4. Notice the Expense Graph -> this will give you an overview of your expense
  5. Reminders -> will help you pay your bills on time.
  6. All the expense that are shared now will show up under “Who Owes me?” on the right. This will also have your “Reimbursement” expenses.
  7. You can search by category, amount and also by different clients (website, mobile, TECI hardware).
  8. Planning will contain different goals that will help you plan your future.
  9. Events will be of two types, Shared and non shared. A shared event can be with friends, non shared event is your personal group expenditure.
  10. Lastly the Dashboard will have overview of your income, expense, savings per month and some more graphs.

The reason we went live without completing all these features, is to learn and put the right features that users want. In the past 2 days we have already learnt a few more things from the users and have made notes of them. Please continue give us feedback on bugs as well as new features that you would like to have.

Couple of words on the TECI hardware:

The hardware device(TECI) has many advantages. It is the fastest way to make note of your expenditure and forget about it. The hardware remembers the date and time when the expense was made and you will be able to enter which category the expense belongs to.

It is a bi-directional device, i.e. when you sync with  your account, information from the website is transferred to the device and vice versa. Once our event feature is completed, let us say you add a new Event Eg: Goa trip with 5 friends. Once you create an event on the web and sync TECI, the TECI will show the event “Goa Trip” and also the names of all 5 friends. During the trip you can enter everyones expense and also their shares. Once you sync back, the system will inform everyone about the bill settlements.

So we are really excited to bring all these features! Hope you like them. Do follow our blog for more updates.

Joining the dots

Posted on 30 December 2009 by Roopa

I believe that building a product is like building your dream home. You take atmost care in laying out the essentials, chalking out the must-haves, drawing the blue print of the architecture, bricking the house to designing the interiors that makes a cozy home.

Similarly, at IONLAB, we have made sure Track Every Coin is on par with any internationally acclaimed consumer electronic goods and has features that cater to the needs of all of us. Despite the delays and little setbacks we have now been able to put two and two together. We present you the final prototype of our much anticipated hardware device – Track Every Coin, nicknamed TECI 🙂

With the holiday season kicking in, this is normally the time you get to spend some time with your family reflecting on the good moments of 2009. We decided to retrospect and bring to you the highlights at Ionlab and the making of TrackEveryCoin, a project we have put our hearts and souls into.

January 2009: Prototype breadboards were converted to PCB designs

February 2009: Researched and begun sourcing components from various suppliers (LCD, Micro-controller, USB etc) from Singapore, China and India

March 2009: Changed LCD module to work at low voltage, Started talks with manufacturers, CAD designing, and completed Low level drivers for the hardware.

April 2009: New hardware version released (low power micro controller), Ported low level drivers for the new micro controller, Started design work on website.

May 2009: Sourcing of hardware components, Hardware design frozen for CAD designs, Trackeverycoin pre-launch website, www.ionlab.in website launched.

June 2009: Local source for LCD modules found, Identified manufacturing service, Base design for mobile application.

July 2009: PCB design for production complete, Placed production order for microcontroller and other components.

August 2009: Application software testing on production hardware, base version of CAD design ready. Website architecture design in place.

September 2009: PCB fabrication complete, received the first plastic prototype, testing different versions of mobile application.

October 2009: Identified packaging people, button sticker people, Microcontroller and other components arrives, second and third prototype of plastics arrives, Front end UI of website frozen, Mobile navigation simplified.

Noverber 2009: Application software bug fixes, Manufacturing plant software released, Desktop software (used to upload hardware data to website) is complete (testing in progress). Completed user manual for hardware.

December 2009: Integration of website backend and frontend started, Received the final prototype (shown above), we are tooling ready, Mobile application testing in progress, Desktop software released.

Next couple of milestones:

  • Production of hardware
  • Tooling of device and production
  • Packaging
  • Mobile application launch
  • Alpha/beta testing of website
  • Launch of hardware

Much appreciate your comments and feedback! A fantastic 2010 to all of you. Thank you for following our blog and cheering us thru 2009.
