Here’s a quick status update of what we’ve been up to and how things are progressing.

MoneyWiz 2 for Android

I am very happy to say that we’ve completed all features development in MoneyWiz for Android a few weeks ago. Right now, we’re down to bug fixing only. In a week or two we’ll release the final beta before public release and we hope to make the public release by the end of July or early August.

The way the public release of MoneyWiz 2 for Android will work is this:

1. We’ll remove MoneyWiz 1 from the Google Play Store

2. We’ll then release MoneyWiz 2 in the Google Play Store

3. All customers who bought MoneyWiz 1 for Android in the past month (as of date of release) can get a full refund if they want to migrate to MoneyWiz 2, just e-mail us after we release.

4. MoneyWiz 2 for Android will be sold at $4.99 but we’ll run a promo period at lower price.

5. At the time of release we’ll e-mail all our newsletter subscribes, Tweet + Facebook and offer MoneyWiz 2 for iOS and Mac at lower price too for limited time.

6. MoneyWiz 2 for Android will be sold exclusively on the Google Play Store for now.

 

MoneyWiz 2 for Windows

The Windows project is progressing slower than we anticipated. The good news is that we only have a few features left to implement, the biggest one being Online Banking (which we’ve been working on for the past 3 weeks and should be done in around 4-5 more weeks). At this point, as much as I’d like to give a release date, it is unlikely that it will be realistic. We hope to release the Windows version in September though.

PS Since some people ask us, let us clarify that MoneyWiz 2 for Windows is for Windows Desktop computers, not Windows phone/tablet. Although if you have a Windows tablet that runs desktop apps (like Surface Pro) MoneyWiz will work on it.

 

MoneyWiz 2 for iOS/Mac

MoneyWiz 2.0.6 is pending Apple’s approval. In this version we focused on 2 things:

1. Stability (no more crashes!)

2. Online Banking auto-categorization… we’re working with customers to vastly improve the auto-categorization feature.

In a week from now, we’ll also start working on version 2.1.0 which will bring the much anticipated advanced reconciliation feature on Mac.

 

MoneyWiz 2 FREE Version

By the end of the upcoming week we will submit the free/trial version of MoneyWiz 2 for iOS and Mac.

The way the free version will work is similar to previously – i.e. you will have a limit of 100 transactions. The difference comes when the limit is reached. Unlike the demo version of MoneyWiz 1, MoneyWiz 2 will be subscription based. When you subscribe ($4.99 per month for online banking only and $4.99 per month separately if you want to enter manual transactions too) you can use MoneyWiz 2 on all platforms within the same subscription. All future updates will be free of charge for you. Alternatively if you decide to buy MoneyWiz 2 (the paid version) you can do so too. It’s up to you.

  • Will MoneyWiz 2 for Android be released in Amazon AppStore at the same time?

    Reply
    • Hi Roy,

      We don’t plan to release MoneyWiz 2 on the Amazon AppStore. We’ll focus on fewer sales channels but more updates, as opposed to the other way around. The issue with too many sales channels is that it takes forever to release an update on all of them and it makes 0 financial sense for a small company like ours to waste time on that, when we can put that time into development.

  • Hello iliya,

    I know it might be tough to maintain release on multi-sales channel. However, I would really like use it on my Kindle Fire.(Kindle fire has no Google Play)
    If possible, could you take Amazon AppStore as the only second sales channel into consideration.
    I think Google Play and Amazon Appstore are the two biggest Android sales endpoint, so released in Amazon AppStore might be possible increase profit.

  • Thanks Roy, will keep it in mind. Didn’t know the Fire didn’t allow Google Play purchases…

  • Thank you for the update iliya! The Windows version is what interests me most (currently running on iPad and iPhone), the promise of running a version on Windows alongside iPhone was what sold me originally. Any ideas when and if a Beta version might be trialled?
    I have not been using the online banking functionality – the cost puts me off.

  • Hi Lee,

    We will release the first Android beta by the end of July (hopefully sooner than the actual end of the month). We’re wrapping up on the Loan Accounts functionality, some sync related bug fixes and Online Banking and when this is done, we’ll release the first Windows beta, and continue implementing some of the smaller features left + bug fixing while we gather feedback from the beta.

  • How about “tags” in iOS version?

    Reply
  • Hey Iliya,

    fantastic app, use it delightfully all the time!
    It’d be great to be able to customize the categories that are shown when entering a transaction on Apple Watch, or at least have a list of the last categories from which to choose.
    That would be really handy!

    Thanks for all the effort you and the team put into this, it’s great!

    • Hi Riccardo,

      Thank you for the nice words.
      You can actually customize the categories you see on the Apple Watch… the way we display them is that we display the first 12 categories (from top to bottom) from your list of categories. So if you re-order your list of categories on your iPhone, it affects the Watch too (if it falls within the first 12 categories).
      This is done so for performance reasons by the way. When the Watch becomes faster, we’ll gladly show all categories.

  • Hope windows version could release as soon as possible… I know it won’t be done until september… Just wishes… iOS version is not that convenient for the small screen, windows version would be a supplementary for the ios version.

  • I’m really glad Moneywiz 2 is coming to Android soon! I just switched from an iPhone 6 to an HTC One M9 and Moneywiz has definitely been missed on my new phone. Luckily I can still use it with my iPad until the Andorid version is released.

  • I love MoneyWiz 1 for Android, as a Windows User I am really relying on a Windows version to come soon, it would be highly appreciated if you could release in September 😉

    I am also happy to participate in the beta-program 🙂

    • Thanks for the support George. We too want to release for Windows ASAP. We’re wrapping up on the Online Banking and some fixes and we hope to release the first beta at the end of this month or so. We’ll announce it on our website and social media when that happens.

  • Hi IIiya,

    Can I get a full refund if I buy MoneyWiz 1 now and migrate to MoneyWiz 2 later? Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

    Reply
    • Hi Elson,

      If you mean for Android – yes. I say this because for iOS and Mac we no longer sell MoneyWiz 1, so you can’t buy it even if you wanted to.
      As for Android – Google allows us to handle the refunds on our end and we never refuse a refund, no questions asked.

      Reply
  • So who MoneyWiz 1 on Android that will have to do? Buy back the license MoneyWiz 2? And as for the data? I hope that you can migrate data from 1 to 2 with no problems.

    Reply
    • Hi Edoardo,

      If you are on MoneyWiz 1, you are free to stay on it for as long as you want. You are not obligated to migrate to MoneyWiz 2.
      Other than that, the migration of data is very easy – it happens automatically when you sign into your SYNCbits account on MoneyWiz 2.
      Please notice that once you migrate to MoneyWiz 2, the data is updated to a new format and you will not be able to downgrade to MoneyWiz 1.

  • any updates on investment accounts? I can’t migrate all my accounts from iBank over until this feature is in. I hope it’s not too far down the timeline.

    Reply
    • Hi Frank,

      Investment accounts will come later this year. Apologies for the delay. All these delays are caused by the delayed release for Android/Windows, and that’s the reason we avoid doing features that are related to sync as if we did them on iOS/Mac we’ll have to do them on Android/Windows to assure sync works properly, and this will further delay the releases for Android/Windows.

      Reply
  • Thanks for your good work and a great product. Every release significantly enhances MoneyWiz.

    In your 6/28 post you mentioned that you would start working on MW 2.1 in a week. That is great news. At one point, you had Investment Account Support planned for 2.1. Is that still the case?

    I’ve been using 2.0x in trial mode alongside another financial package I have been using for many years. MW is far better, especially syncing between devices and now category matching, but I don’t see a way to fully move over to MW and finally get rid of the other package until MW supports Investment Accounts.

    Reply
    • Hi Paul,

      The trial version of MoneyWiz is coming very soon actually 🙂 It’s already pending Apple’s approval for both iOS & Mac.
      As for Investment Accounts – we will still do them in MoneyWiz 2, but it will probably be 2.2 or 2.3 later this year. 2.1 will bring advanced reconciliation. The reason for the delay of the more advanced features such as investment accounts and tags is that if we did them on iOS/Mac, we’ll have to do them on Android/Windows and that will further delay the release of Android/Windows.

    When will the Free version be available in the app store? I’m currently using iBank but I’d quite like to try your software before switching over.

    • Hi John,

      The free iOS version is now available. The Mac is still waiting for Apple’s approval though, so I hope any day now (the free iOS version was approved yesterday).

        Hi Iliya!

        are you planning to sell MoneyWiz 2 for Mac off your website or is Mac App Store the only place to get it?

        Cheers,
        Bart

        Reply
        • Hi Bart,

          For now, the Mac App Store is the only way to get it. We are waiting for Apple to approve the free/trial version of MoneyWiz for Mac any day now though. As for sales via our website – for now we don’t plan to do this, but that may change. It depends on several thing which we’re investigating currently.

    When moneywizz for Android and Windows will be released? I’ve be waiting for several months; you always say that it’s coming soon but it’s not available yet…

    Reply
    • Hi,

      As stated in the post above, we’re releasing for Android at the end of this month. Windows is still unknown but we hope to release first beta in August, and based on how the beta goes we’ll know better how far along are we from release.

  • Well done for producing such an excellent App. There were a few teething problems with v2 but they seem to have all been sorted which shows a general sense of pride in your product.
    Looking forward, do you have any plans to update the budgets section?
    One thing I would like to see is the ability to separate certain budgets, a bit like the accounts section where you can place a group of accounts in their own group with a running balance. Basically I’d like to see the running totals for budgets linked to my family accounts and a separate running total for my personal accounts. Hopefully this makes.

    Reply
    • Hi Andrew,

      We do have plans to improve the budgets in various ways:
      1. Easier transferring of money between budgets (drag&drop)
      2. Grouping at some point
      3. Goals functionality – like budgets but for incomes.

  • An app for Windows 10 is a must.. I can’t believe I still have to pull out my phone when I’m in front of the pc. Competition already has it, but MoneyWiz is too good for me to make the more so simply. Yet, the temptation is strong. Hurry up, guys!

    Oh, and MoneyWiz 2. Just take my money already! -)

    • Hi Alexey,

      Once released, MoneyWiz will work on Windows 10…just fyi, it’s not a metro/mobile interface, it’s a desktop interface for Windows.

    Hi! Well, I’ve been using Moneywiz (paid version) for a while and I really appreciate it. I also used the moneywiz 2 beta version and I have to say that both of them lack a very useful option: to divide a credit card purchase into installments. I don’t know if it is not common to do it in the USA but here in Brazil, where I live, it’s very common to do it. I would really like to see that in the final version of moneywiz 2.

    Reply
    • Hi,

      You can actually do this, via the “Scheduled” section. There, you can plan a transaction to have X amount of installments. Have a look there and let us know if you have questions.

      Reply
  • Does this mean that if I subscribe to online banking (4.99$ per month), MoneyWiz 2 free/trial will be free (no limit of 100 transactions) on all platforms?

    Reply
    • Hi Celio,

      That is partially correct. If you subscribe to Online Banking only, via the free version, you will not be able to enter transactions manually. In the free version, Online Banking & Manual Transactions are separate functionalities.
      We’re preparing a website update to give specific examples and explain that in more details.

      But basically, if you only plan to use OB (Online Banking) then the free version is probably a better choice for you. If you need both – manual transactions and OB then it’s up to you. All major updates will be free in the free version (i.e. MoneyWiz 3 when it comes will come for free in the free version and will work with your subscriptions), while major updates will be paid in the paid version. Both cost approximately the same, but the small difference can come from how you plan to use it.

      Reply
  • Your [BUY] page is very confusing. I am unable to use online banking since it violates the policy of the bank that I do business with. So, if I purchase the program (all platforms) am I still able to use sync bits without a charge? Also your advertising moneywiz 3 and you have yet to release moneywiz for Windows.

    • Hi Sophia,

      Indeed it’s not out yet. We are fixing several issues we found last week related to online banking and that’s what’s delaying us. We sent an e-mail last week (to all newsletter subscribers) to explain about the delay. We’re hoping to release this week now, but let’s see… as noted in the email we’re very close to release, it could be any day now, but we’d rather not promise an exact day of release at this point, as we can’t predict if new bugs will be discovered after fixing the ones we know about now.

      The beta is not out yet, as we still have some 30 known bugs which we want to fix before releasing, otherwise we think most of the feedback will overlap with what we already know. Hopefully end of this week, if not – sometime next week.

    • Hi Luigi,

      We’re releasing the beta this week (after few weeks delay due to some serious performance issues we wanted to fix). Releasing the beta itself is a good sign that we’re approaching release. While we hope to release in a month or two, we can’t really know, because often times there are hidden issues which, when they come up, tend to take time to fix. But let’s say – we really really want to release in a month or two.

  • Any updates on the Windows release for your app? And how good will your app look on high dpi screens? It’s a major deal breaker for me if the font is teeny tiny like all the other personal finance apps. You need a budget is a good example, the font is just too darn microscopic and I don’t even have a high DPI screen. So hopefully you guys are keeping this in mind and have an option to increase the programs font size.

    • Hi Debby,

      The free version has such limit unless unlocked. The paid version doesn’t. So if you really bought it (i.e. you paid) then you may have re-downloaded the wrong app (the free version). The free version has white icon and the paid version has grey icon. More about the differences here:
