New features: Auto suggestion memo and Export via Email

New features in v1.3 and 1.4!! In v1.3 I added memo auto suggest feature which suggest memo you previously entered while you type. This helps saving a lot of typing. You can also purge all memo auto suggest words as you wish by going to the Settings page.

In v1.4 I added the Export via Email feature. Now you don't have to find the USB cable to access the exported file. You can simply export expenses by sending email to yourself!

Localized Hello Expense

There are quite many Android users outside the US and many have suggested me to provide options to change the currency and date format. I quickly put together a settings page for that and hope it didn't introduce more bugs :) Release early, release often!

I am creating my first Android app because I couldn't find exactly what I am looking for on Android Market. I want a simple app for tracking my daily expense, but the ones out there are either too complex for my need or poor in usability. So I decided to write one for myself. It it actually pretty fun to write Android app, a little bit like writing GWT app. Setting up development environment is a breeze as Eclipse takes care of almost everything. I said almost everything because I don't use it for editing. I have used to IntelliJ IDEA and spoiled, though I have installed IJ keymap on Eclipse, it is still not quite the same. Back to the topic, my apps is still in the making, and I hope I can tune it a bit and publish it on Market soon.
