ListBook 5.0


We are very proud to present you our newest ListBook version 5.0. This is the biggest update since the first release and we hope our ListBook users will like and love it.

One of the new main features is called “Filters”. At the moment you can colorize your items for example to mark their priority. With Filters you can now say, show me all red or yellow colored items over all your lists.
So colorising items makes more sense now. You can also use the Filters to just show you items with due dates.

An other new feature is Sorting. In the new ListBook version you can sort your items by Done, Alphabetic, Modified Date or Manual. Thats something a lot of you asked for. So here you go. :)
What we also really love is the new design of the Mac version. It is redesigned to make it feel cleaner and more refined throughout the system. It just looks awesome.

That was just a sneak peak of the new version, below is the complete list from the new features and improvements:

iOS

  • – optimized for iPhone 6/6+
  • – Widget
  • – Actionable notifications (Mark as Complete, Snooze)
  • – Link, Date and Phone number detection

OSX

  • – New Design

Both

  • – Filters
  • – Sorting
  • – Yearly recurrence
  • – Better workflow and performance
  • – Gui improvements

The update is completely free and we hope you like the new ListBook as we do. Thanks for your support.

BudgetBook


As you may know, we’re a small 2-person team and we love it. Being small means being flexible and independent.
Now you also may have noticed that BudgetBook, our iPad-only finance app, wasn’t very maintained lately. That’s why we decided to take it out off the store. If you bought it, it will continue to work. It is a product we don’t really believe in. We’re small and want to focus on a few products and only the ones we believe that we can make them really great. And we no longer have this feeling with BudgetBook.
I’m honest, every app we made to date, we made it because we wanted to make it. Because we felt the need for such an app. Because
we use it every day. But not with BudgetBook. It was never such an app. We made it because we thought we had to do it, because we thought we had to make a more complex finance app. This was a mistake. When you work on things you don’t believe in and you don’t use them yourself, you won’t make your best work and then it’s not worth it.
That’s it. I don’t want to throw some meaningless business-words or other excuses around. It’s just plain simple and honest: we shouldn’t have made this app in the first place. We never really believed in it and we didn’t update it because of this. So it’s better to remove it from sale.

We understand that some of you may be angry because of this decision, but we still hope that you love us like we do love all our users :)

And finally some news, you read about AstroJump, Yearly is already in review, should be available soon we hope. MoneyBook for iOS 8 with support for iPhone 6 (plus) is waiting for review, so it will be available maybe in a week or two. Next and ListBook will follow soon (and SmokeFree too).

Have an awesome weekend.

AstroJump!


So a few weeks ago we played around with SpriteKit, just for fun and for learning something new and we made a little game called AstroJump.
We had so much fun making it, designing the retro pixel graphics and searching the sounds that we decided to release this little game.
Since it was just a fun side-project we give it away for free, with no in-app-purchases or ads (just some icons from our other apps). We had a lot of fun and we hope some of you will find it cool too. Get it here in the AppStore (universal).

Some other news: We submitted iOS 8 updates for Yearly (with a nice widget) and for MoneyBook (also with support for the new iPhones).
Updates for ListBook (actually a pretty big one) and Next will follow as soon as OSX Yosemite will be released (since we require iCloud Drive).

So, have a great day and enjoy our little game!

Next for Mac


Few weeks ago we introduced our fir Mac App ListBook and now we continue this way. With ListBook and Next we now have two great apps on all our platforms, each app was carefully built for its device and everything is synced through iCloud.

Next for iPhone app is perfect for on the go. It’s fast and easy to add new expenses.
On the iPad it makes use of the big screen to let you browse (and add/edit) your expenses in a zoomable info-graphic.
Finally the brand new Mac version comes in a calendar-style interface and brings many useful shortcuts. For example quickly add a new expense with cmd+N, enter the amount, tab to the notes field, tab to the categories and select them with the cursor keys. Or no matter where you are in the app, press cmd+T to go to (yes you guessed it!) Today.
