Toshl: Keep your expenses controlled

Do you have a lot of expenses to track? Do you need to know where your money is going? Now you can. Toshl has the capability to record the date, value, type of expense and also add a comment to the expense entry if you want.

With Toshl we can see our list of expenses in two ways, using the Timeline view or the Tags view so we can know rapidly where we are spending our money no matter where we are. Also we can define the month that we want to see in case we need to compare expenses with previous months.

The application can also sync with the online service provided by ThirdFrameStudios. After registering at toshl.com, we can see our expenses and can export for several file formats like Text, Excel, PDF and GDocs if we pay for the annual service.

Like the Android application, on the Toshl site we can control all our expenses using the Timeline or Tags view and also see graphs that help us understand where we are spending more money. Using the sync to upload the expenses from time to time and using the PRO subscription option to send emails reports, we can really keep our expenses controlled. If we pay for the PRO subscription we can also edit expenses on the website, search the expenses and see more advanced graphs. Another nice feature is that you always have a backup of your expenses on the Toshl website if you lose or change your Android phone.

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Online backup
  • Export capability to Text, Excel, PDF and GDocs with the PRO subcription

Needs improvement:

  • Graphs in the application
  • More services in the free mode

Final Verdict

If you need one application to keep track and control your expenses, this application is for you. Using it with toshl.com you can have graphs and reports for all expenses and help to keep them to the minimum.

Phone and version used: Nexus One and Toshl 1.5.1

Special notes: The application is free but to have all the features you need to pay the $19.95/year subscription.
