You can already use Xero Touch to see your bank account balances on your touch-screen device. Today, we’ve added bank statement lines to those balances.
This means you can drill into your bank accounts and see all of the recent activity. It’s a more detailed picture of your business, and it’s accessible when you’re on the run. Check it out in this video:
Bank statement lines are a big step towards being able to reconcile your bank transactions in Xero Touch. Now that you can see your transactions on your mobile device, we can start working on giving you the means to put those transactions in context.
Like most simple things, bank reconciliation is extremely complex when you look under the hood. Almost everything in Xero is affected when you press the big green “OK” button, so adding it to Xero Touch is a bigger undertaking than it might appear at first glance. But we like a good challenge.
In tandem with the bank rec project, we have a test Android build running on the new version of Sencha Touch. Although we’re still a few months away from being able to release it, we are making good progress.
