Export und weitere nützliche Verbesserungen


Seit Version 1.1.4 hat Keep eine Reihe weiterer nützlicher Features bekommen. Hervorzuheben gilt es vor allem den Export der Buchungsliste.

Excel, json, csv und weitere Textformate werden nun unterstützt.

Weiter finden Sie in der Buchungsliste unten eine neue praktische Statusleiste. Sie zeigt Anzahl Buchungen und den Totalbetrag. So können Sie z.B. auch mehrere Buchungen auswählen und deren Summe auf einen Blick berechnet haben.

Das Dokument mit der Übersicht der Konten kann ziemlich lang werden. Deshalb können Sie es nun optional nur mit Ihren verwendeten Konten generieren.

Keep Kontendokument

Viele Daten manuell eingeben ist Zeitaufwändig. Keep hat mit den letzten Updates einige Importfunktionen bekommen.

Unterstützt werden Dateiformate wie CSV, Text, Html oder Excel. So lange Tabellarische Daten vorhanden sind, sollte es auch möglich sein diese in Keep zu importieren.
Dies geschieht über das Menü Ablage › Import › Datei importieren…
Es wird ein Importer-Fenster angezeigt und dort können Sie bestimmen wie die verschiedenen Felder übernommen werden sollen.

Was noch fast spannender ist als die Möglichkeit eine Datei zu importieren, ist die copy & paste Unterstützung. Wenn Sie z.B. auf einer Webseite mit einer Tabelle sind, können Sie diese markieren, kopieren und in Keep einfügen. Was z.B. für das E-Banking sehr praktisch sein kann.

Wenn Sie Ihre Rechnungen mit GrandTotal schreiben ist es noch einfacher die Zahlungen in Keep zu importieren. GrandTotal hat Keep-Unterstützung direkt eingebaut. Im Menü Ablage › Senden An › Keep.

Keep


We were quiet for some time, a lot happened. So aside from private things we were planning and working on some major things.

I’m sure you read a lot about indie companies having trouble making enough money in the App Store to make a living. This won’t be a post about this. It’s a fact it’s hard to make a living from almost everything in the world, so you have to find ideas and work hard for it. Our first app for iPhone was a financing app, most of our apps had to do with finances and tracking your expenses. So for us it’s a logical step to continue in this direction.

We will continue to work on our iOS apps, there will be new versions and maybe even new iOS apps in the future. Because it’s really fun and creative to build for iPhone and iPad. In addition to this the last 6 months we worked really hard on a new Mac app. As I said, it will have to do with financing too. But this time we’re targeting small/medium companies and for example self employed people. It will be a professional accounting app. Built for the Mac. We think it’s the best business model to target this group. So for the moment the iOS apps will be for fun and not for the money. This new Mac app will be called Keep. It’s not for your personal finances. Because this is a really ambitious project, we will start by focusing on the swiss and german market. Then slowly we’ll go in other markets too. Of course everyone in the world will be able to download and try the app. Because it’s a professional app with a higher price tag, it will be free to try and there will be paid updates in the future. So we’re not going to put it in the Mac App Store. We’re really excited about Keep, it will help us keeping (ha!) our business sustainable for many years to come.

Our company exists for 6 years now and we managed to survive building only our own products and selling them in the AppStores. This is already a big success for us. But if we want to stay in this business we have to adapt our strategy. Selling 3$ apps is not sustainable. We think the way to go is to have a professional product targeting professional people/companies. And having smaller iOS apps without any pressure of making money.
You can’t just survive by selling an app for 3$ and then providing free support and updates for years. That’s why we’re adapting.

Our website has gotten an all new and all responsive look too. And because we’re targeting Switzerland and Germany in this first step, the site will be german and english. Also expect german blog posts from time to time. Thank you for reading and following our adventure.

myMoneyBook


We want to keep this short and to the point. We will take myMoneyBook, the web app for backup and viewing of MoneyBook data, offline in a few weeks or months. For this we will release a new MoneyBook update. This update will allow you to export a backup file and send it to you via e-mail, save it on iCloud Drive or if you have Dropbox installed you can saved it there (all via the native iOS share sheet).

To run myMoneyBook was just too expensive all this time, it was of course never profitable. So we decided to discontinue it. To be clear, we’re talking about the myMoneyBook web app.

We will keep myMoneyBook import in the app until another update, so if you have your data on myMoneyBook you can still import it or delete your account for example.
Hope you all understand our situation. We’re glad to still provide you a backup option in the new update.
