Kharcha – The No Frills, Simple Expense Tracker Android App

Posted on Updated on

I am fasKharcha Expense Trackercinated by mobile apps & the way they have become an integral part of our lives. Not many things in technology has touched our lives like mobile (& mobile apps) — much more than internet or anything before in technology.

As part of my mobile apps usage I wanted to use a simple expense tracker to keep track of where I am spending money. Needless to say, I found 1000’s of expense trackers in playstore and I used quite a few expense trackers but somehow found them to be overly complex. I wanted a no frills expense tracker — something which is plain & simple. No complex goal settings, money sources etc. Just plain simple add expense, expense done on what & paid through. No complex reporting. Just simple reports that you can use.  Few of the expense trackers I tried were good but they wanted too many permissions on phone. I don’t understand why an expense tracker should have access to my contact list, dial numbers, read SMS, or ask me to register with email etc.

Keeping that in mind, I thought of creating one for myself — a simple expense tracker for daily expenses. Bare minimum features & usable in place of writing expenses in a book. My reference was my mother who used to just write the expense, date & amount in a notebook at end of everyday.

Thus Kharcha (Kharcha in hindi means Expenses) was written over few days with the focus on simplicity over complex features. No permissions on your phone, no sending data anywhere or  access to any information on your phone. Kharcha expense tracker will be very good for people who prefer simplicity over complex features. Especially markets like India where for example say housewives & people from tier-II/III cities are starting to use smartphones & mobile apps

Usage — as easy as saying 1 – 2:
—————–
Step #1: Setup your own categories for expense types. (For example: Utilities & Bills, Monthly Provisions, Shopping & Eating Out…)
Step #2: Start adding expenses. That’s it.

You can use the various easy to use simple reports to see your expense history & at any time add more categories.

In case you need to delete an expense, you can do so from the summary view by long pressing expense detail

You can download the app from google play store here: Kharcha
