Accountz launches iPhone app for finances

Accountz, a UK-based accounting software firm, has announced the launch of its first iPhone application. Mobile Accountz Lite is designed to empower users to take control of their finances, spending, and expenses, while on the move.

Designed and built inhouse, Mobile Accountz Lite enables users to record their daily spending and track their various totals without using the internet. The software is extremely easy to use and is compatible with all existing Accountz software, including Home, Business, and Personal Accountz.

Through the application, users are able to upload transactions via a WiFi connection to any accounting application that imports OFX or CSV files. The app can also be pre-loaded with a set of accounts to include opening balances from a CSV-style file. It also allows users to create their own accounts with a text editor, or they can export a CSV file from another application.

The application is geared towards making accounting more accessible and efficient for consumers and small business owners. Early indications have shown strong interests with sales taking place on both sides of the Atlantic. Initial customer feedback is extremely positive, the company claimed.

Quentin Pain, founder and chairman of Accountz, commented: “Mobile Accountz Lite is something that we’ve been working on for a while and we are thrilled to finally launch it. This allows us to expand our product portfolio as well as opening up a new customer market to us. The recent spending review announcement has really put pain to the need for consumers and businesses to be even more aware as to how their finances are managed. Our aim is to provide users with a product that enables them to do this, and with Mobile Accountz Lite, we see this as the perfect complement to ensure complete control.”

Mobile Accountz Lite, is available within the UK and US, and is downloadable at £2.99 and $4.99 respectively. The application can be found in the Finance category of the iTunes App Store.
