Sample Trips

To get started, first take a look at the sample trips we've included to get an feel for the views and navigation.

Using the Currency Converter

  • Displays a range of amounts converted from the local currency to your home currency and allows you to use gestures to modify them.
  • Swipe up and down to move through the range.
  • Swipe left and right to multiply or divide by 10.
  • Tap a number in the left column for more detail.
  • Tap a number in the right column to enter that amount as an expense.
  • The refresh button on the right of the navigation bar sets the converter back to its default values.

Using the Dashboard

  • Displays the headline figures for your trip's finances.
  • Choose the trip you wish to view by tapping on the photo.
  • Add an expense to the trip by tapping the plus sign.
  • Your target daily spend is calculated to guide you to come in on budget.
  • Compare this figure with the average daily spend and you'll know if you need to cut back or can afford to splash out.
  • Tap on any of these headline figures to a see more detailed breakdown.

Add an expense

  • From the dashboard view – tap the plus symbol to open the Add Expense view. You can then add the amount in either the home or the local currency by tapping on the relevant field.
  • From the converter view – tap an amount in the right hand column. This will populate the Add Expense view with the selected amount.
  • You can also enter a spending category (Travel,Food etc), a payment type (Cash, Credit Card, etc) and a note if you wish.
  • While not compulsory, this info will greatly increase the detail and insight into your spending the app can provide.
  • If you're in a rush, you can just leave these as the defaults when entering the expense and go back later to add the detail.
