    “it is important to note here again that the GnuCash for Android does not support reading your Gnucash for the desktop files.”

    Sorry, was interested, but that’s a fatal mistake.

    Thanks for all your work. From the screenshots it seems that it doesn’t do double entry accounting. Is that planned for a future release?

    Hey, congratulations! Good job!

    Simple, but enough to store those small transactions during the day.

    UI is very nice and usable. Another good points:
    – Deletion of transactions once they are exported.
    – Synchronization with Dropbox.

    What I miss:
    – I can’t make work the default transaction type. It’s always debit.
    – Cash or Bank accounts for the other side of the transaction.

    Loving the App so far. I use GNUcash for the desktop on linux, but since i have gotten my nexus 7 i havent been on my desktop in over a month. What i would like is a full accounting experience i get on the desktop, but on my tablet… is there a possibility we could get something comparable to the desktop experience in the future?

    This is really awesome, thanks a lot. I’m not sure I’d want all of my accounting data on my phone, but this is exactly what I wanted. Somewhere I could track expenses and later easily get them into gnucash. I think you’ve built the perfect companion for Android and I’m personally very grateful. Now to install and play with it… :-)

    I found some additional issues in Nexus 7 (Android 4.2.1):

    – The transactions are not deleted after export.
    – When using characters like (ü, ó,…) these are shown in GnuCash desktop as strange characters. I’m using GnuCash on Linux with MySQL. Maybe it is a problem of the character set of MySQL which is something like “latiniso”.

    Thanks, very helpful.
    One query, and I apologise if I have missed some documentation, on import into GNUcash, am I correct in thinking that while you can post to say a credit card account all entries “charged” to that card, the “other side” of the entry has to be input separately in the desktop version of GNUcash?

    hello! i’m just starting to use gnucash, and android companion seems like a great idea! however i’ve ran into a problem: when importing generated ofx files into gnucash the cyryllic text gets garbled (please check the screenshot: http://goo.gl/Nv5B8). tested on linux (crunchbang 10) with gnucash 2.4.10. sorry i’m not sure if this is gnucash or the android app problem…

    Until there is the ability to sync between (heck, even using files between) the desktop and the this app, this is not usable in any meaningful way.

    Once this is supported (exporting my information from desktop to phone rather than the reverse (which to me seems like a backwards way of doing things), the application will be worth using. Until then, this is just proof of concept to me.

    I’m using a Nexus 7 tablet and have a problem with adding accounts. When I try to add a new account, the parent account choice is grayed out and I can’t change it from expenses.

    This is a great start at a functional Gnucash for android.

    I’m using version 1.2.4 on a new Nexus 7 (2013). My desktop Gnucash is version 2.4.10. I’m running Ubuntu 12.04.

    I have two issues with importing the OFX file. One, the imported data place a ‘check’ or ‘c’ on each imported transaction. This would be great if the transaction was from a bank or credit card statement, but when it’s merely a vacation transaction, it becomes useless and potentially destructive to a future reconcilation of the account. There may be a setting within desktop Gnucash that changes this behavior, but I can’t find it. Alternatively, if there’s a variable set within the OFX file, it might be possible to change it with a Regular Expression before importation.

    The other issue is minor: when searching for a balancing transaction within the program, the accounts are strangely ordered, making it difficult to find the right one. It’s no big deal, but it sure would be nice if all of the Asset, Expense, etc accounts were alphbetized within each category.

    Congrats on a great program.

    i’ve probably found a way to use this program to quickly enter expenses “on the go” and not spend a lifetime doing it. potentially this should look like this: i only create a handful of assets accounts in the gnucash for android that i spend from: cash & several bank cards. every time i spend something i enter it under the appropriate account… at the beginning of every month i can export/import the ofx…

    in practice this still causes headache, because:

    1) when importing first time from an account created in gnucash for android, gnucash asks to identify the account but does not show any meaningful description, so you have to guess?

    2) (this is probably gnucash issue but still) the transaction descriptions get truncated when importing to gnucash!

    3) time and note fields get totally ignored during ofx import unless i am missing something here…

    the first two issues are critical for me.
