ClearCheckbook WebOS App in Top 200 and the Top Finance App.

4/21/2010 in ClearCheckbook News
The ClearCheckbook Money Management WebOS app is currently in the Top 200 most downloaded free apps since February 2010. We are also the top downloaded free personal finance app!

As of this posting, the ClearCheckbook Money Management app has received almost 17,000 downloads since it first launched in February. It's amazing to see such a good following for the app.

If you know anyone who has a Palm WebOS phone, let them know about the app!

WebOS App updated with Reminders / Recurring Transactions

4/21/2010 in ClearCheckbook News
The ClearCheckbook WebOS app has been updated to include Reminders / Recurring Transactions. You can now view, add, edit and delete reminders and recurring transactions directly from your WebOS app.

The interface for the reminders is very easy to use and can be accessed directly from the overviews page by clicking on the calendar icon.

If you're going to ask about why we don't have an iPhone app out yet, please refer to this thread: Seeking iPhone / iPad Developer.

Seeking iPhone / iPad Developer

4/17/2010 in ClearCheckbook News
We're looking to hire an iPhone / iPad developer to finish the ClearCheckbook mobile app. We've made some progress (thanks to a few CCB members), but we really need to get this completed sooner rather than later.

The ideal candidate is someone who has a good working knowledge of Objective-C and has successfully created a few apps that are live in the App store.

The iPhone app will need to mimic the functionality that currently exists for the WebOS and Android apps. You can check out those screenshots and features by clicking on the respective links at the bottom of the page.

We have our API documented and working with both the WebOS and Android apps. It uses the RESTful style to perform various actions.

It took me about 60-70 hours to code, debug and launch the WebOS app to where it is right now. That included writing the API and learning the WebOS language. I'm assuming it shouldn't take very much longer for someone who knows their way around Objective-C to complete the project.

We will pay $40/hr (assuming development time of around 75 hours) for completion of the iPhone app. This price is negotiable. The iPad app development cost will probably fall under the $40/hr mark as well.

Please send an email to brandon at clearcheckbook dot com if you're interested. Serious inquiries only.

Every ClearCheckbook iPhone user and myself thank you in advance.
