Lumen Trails Time Tracker

Normally $19.99.

• Apple “New Year, New You” Favorite
• Apple App Store Staff Favorite

Lumen Trails is an omni tracker. It lets you take notes, make lists and keep track of other things in your life, such as time, workouts, expenses, calories, food, weight, sleep or anything else you can think of. Thousands of people use it every day, and they love it because it truly makes a difference in their lives.

“I’ve been using Lumen Trails for 6 months and continue to love it. One of my most sticky and useful apps ever on my phone.” – David D’Souza

The beauty of Lumen Trails is that you can track absolutely anything. There are tons of other apps that allow you to track one or two things, for example, calories and weight. But what if you decide to track something else? Say, how many cigarettes you smoke as you try to quit, your eating habits or even net worth? Lumen Trails is the app for that!

Instead of having one app for your to-do lists, one for tracking expenses, another one for tracking your weight, you can declutter your home screen and just have one app that does it all.

Designed exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, Lumen Trails is incredibly powerful, easy to use, and looks beautiful on the Retina HD Display. It can even backup your data automatically to Google Drive, sync with iCloud, and is fully accessible with Apple VoiceOver in 8 languages. There’s nothing that comes even close to it. And to top it all, your data is not locked on your iPhone. You can export it to Excel or Google Docs!

So what’s truly important to you right now? Your Health? Fitness? Finances? Productivity?

Track it and get things done!

:: Note to iPhone 6 & 6 Plus users

Now you can ask Siri to find information for you and dictate right into Lumen Trails. For example, hold down the Home button and ask Siri: “How many calories are in a chicken sandwich?”. To start dictation, tap the microphone button on your keyboard and just start talking – your words will be turned into text.

Normally $1.99.

BudgetPal is the more stylish personal finance manager application you could possibly imagine. It allows you to keep track of incomes and expenses, check balances and overall aggregates. You can easily scroll the screen back and forth in time, by day, month and year, enjoying an elegant, pleasant and yet effective user experience.

Your privacy is our first concern as your data is stored locally on the device and backed up automatically at your disposal only, for exporting and restoring data capabilities.

Browse your entries by day, month and year grouped by types and subtypes. You can scroll back and forth with your finger. On the top of the screen you will see a summary of current expenses and incomes and the number of entries according to the selected time frame. You can navigate each group of entries and modify them if needed.

Enter a brand new entry choosing by expense or income and then organising it by type and subtype. You can specify whether the entry is recurring or whether it is a quick entry template to enter with a single tap. Great time-saver indeed.

Scroll through a list of all recent of future entries. Entries here are atomically displayed, grouped by occurring day. A calendar on top helps you scroll to the desired date.

Easily monitor your transactions in a glance through bars and line graphs showing monthly balances grouped by year. The default view shows balances but it is possible to see also display flows of incomes and expenses or incremental assets. You can scroll left or right to the previous or next year to easily compare yearly trends of your finances.

Access your data by a series of available tools: check configured repeating entries and the automatic backups the system took or you chose. Export backups and CSV files by e-mail to store them on other devices. Organise your entries differently by changing the structure of types and subtypes.

For the near future, expect iCloud support as optional choice, a widget for Notification Center, and an Apple Watch glance. And if you like BudgetPal, don’t forget to add a 5 stars review on the App Store!
