This Open-Source Expense Manager for Android Looks Sleek!

It's all about money with this tracker, and it's very useful.

It was a while back when I covered a FOSS Android app (GreenStash) that encourages you to save money.

But, what about managing and tracking expenses? Where do you do that?

Well, I used to utilize a proprietary app until I came across Paisa.

Paisa: App That Makes You Want to Track Money

Paisa is a free and open-source app that lets you track your income and expenses.

You can add all kinds of transactions and view them at a glance to know how your expenses look for the month.

It is under active development, and can be considered a beta app. So, you can expect bugs and issues when you try it.

When you get started with the app, it walks you through adding a bank/cash account to work with, the categories of expenses you need, and the currency.

It supports a wide range of currencies, and is not geared towards any particular currency (unlike some finance apps on the Play Store).

For a change, the user experience is attractive and makes you want to interact with it to add expenses and look at the graphs, transactions, and more.

Other features include:

  • Overview Graph
  • Account card on app homescreen
  • Ad-free and open-source
  • Backup and restore
  • Daily, Monthly, and Yearly filters
  • Edit/Update transactions
  • Multiple bank accounts

It requires you to enter a name for your expense/income, select the appropriate category, and the account to successfully add an entry. While that is not wrong by any means, I hope it had some default behavior on account selection so we do not need to tap a couple of icons and be able to quickly add the expense/income.

I primarily use Monefy app on Android (proprietary) and I find the user experience a bit faster. Yes, it is not that pretty, but the process is faster I would say.

Maybe I'm just nitpicking, but for a FOSS app, it is already doing plenty of good things.

And, other useful features that I should highlight: recurring transactions, and customization of the theme color. So, you can add EMIs and subscriptions with a breeze without needing to add them manually every time, and still make the expenses look cool 😛
