Geldzin2: Financial Accounts

In version 1.4, I add the ability to begin tracking bank accounts and cash. After you figure out how much you will be spending (see Geldzin2: Categories & Budget), you need to know how much money you currently have and where it is held. Aside from that, you should also know how you use the financial accounts, such as if there are any debit cards associated with them. I attempt to meet these goals in the latest implementation of Geldzin2, as shown in the screenshot below.


In the future, I'll provide a means to connect to banks and download balances and transactions, as well as additional account analysis and reports. I'll also provide reminders for when debit cards expire, and notices for when accounts may run out of money based on historical expenditure trends.

You can preview this feature at http://jubilee.homeip.net:84/geldzin2/ (login as guest with password geldzin, select menu [Navigate > Financial Accounts]). Note that the guest/demo account is reset each night, so any changes you make will be lost overnight). This application is still in beta.
