Many users have asked me what is the difference between version 2 and version 3 of Daily Expenses, I can say that both applications do the same, the main difference between version 2 and 3 is the design.
In version 2 the main screen is composed of a control to change the account, buttons with the most important sections of the application and a balance sheet. To access most sections of the application, the user must always return to the main screen first, then enter another section.
In version 3 the main screen is used mainly to show summaries of your income and expenses, the user can choose the views that are most useful, you can also drag these views to change the order in which it is displayed, this way you will always put the summaries that interest you most in the part above. To add revenue, use a floating button located on the lower right side of the screen. To access other sections of the application we use the side menu, through this menu we can move to almost any part of the application without having to return to the main screen.
The second feature that distinguishes version 3 is the design, the application uses the concepts of “Material design”. Material design is a design concept created by Google where depth, surfaces, edges, shadows and colors play an important role.
Another feature of this philosophy is the use of animations, the application uses the movement to guide the user, making it necessary if one element of the screen is distinguished from the others.
Version 2 shows the use of dark backgrounds and contrasts with bright lines or texts, version 2 seeks to make the screens as clean as possible with well-defined clear spaces, when installing version 3 for the first time the user can see that the funds are clear, although the application also includes an option to use dark backgrounds.
It is important to remember that the application is evolving without losing sight of the characteristics that users prefer, in this case I mean that Daily Expenses is designed so that anyone can keep their accounts, avoiding overly technical terms, cumbersome reports or elaborate forms.
Users who have used version 2, know that to add a new record must do it from the main screen, in version 3 thanks to the floating button the user can add records from the main screen, from the list of movements and from the agenda , with the same button you can do more without leaving the section where the user was exploring.
