Hard to believe it’s been 3 years already since the first release of GnuCash Android to the Google Play store. Since then, the app has come a long way from it’s humble beginnings as a simple expense tracker which saved a transaction and an amount and exported them to OFX.
Over several iterations in the 1.x series, we added support for double-entry accounting, split transactions, import and export of GnuCash XML files, support for QIF export format and more. We also now have 4 regular contributors instead of just one which bids well for the future 😉
Today we are announcing release of v2.0.0 of GnuCash Android which is the first major design overhaul. The app now follows the material design guidelines with bold use of color for distinguishing accounts, calculator for transaction entry, improved reporting, multi-currency transactions and so much more.
The full changelog for the v2.0.0 release can be found on GitHub. There is also a GnuCash Android Google+ community where you can discuss with other users, suggest ideas, and interact with the developers.
I am also pleased to announce that starting with v2.0.0, Kindle Fire users can also download GnuCash Android directly from the Amazon App Store for Android
The app has been slowly rolling out in the Google Play store over the past week, so some of you may have it already. Today, we are making it fully available to everyone. We look forward to your feedback and hope you enjoy using it as much as we did developing it.
