Spendable App

Spendable is a mobile expense tracking app. I built Spendable in 2016 after feeling frustrated with the state of other budgeting apps – I felt like every service was too complicated, tracked too much, or required me to login with my personal bank information. I just wanted a simple way to know if I’m overspending on my variable expenses for the week.

The app allows users to set a weekly budget and log their expenses. The home screen shows a breakdown of the current week and swiping to the left shows a breakdown of the past 10 weeks. Staying under budget earns you a star and three stars in a row starts a streak.

What’s Next

The app really helped me become more aware of my weekly spending. I’ve given the app to a few friends to try and have built out a backlog of new features based off their feedback. Version 2.0 will allow users to create multiple budgets and share them – so for example, a user could have a private personal weekly budget as well as separate grocery budget that’s shared with their spouse or roommate. I am also looking into way to continue to “gamify" the experience.
