It’s here! Today we have released Xero Personal for iPhone, a completely new free mobile app for subscribers of our Xero Personal product. It’s available for download in the App Store. Xero Personal is the easiest way to keep track of your personal spending habits and savings goals.
Xero Personal for iPhone gives you a picture of your finances on the go. It allows you to see at a glance your progress against your spending and savings goals. You can set up categorisation rules for new transactions, and see transactions across all of your bank accounts, whether you bank with one bank or four.
If you set up automated bank feeds, depending on the bank, you should receive new data overnight. Soon you will begin receiving notifications when you have new transactions to match in Xero Personal. There have been a few reliability issues with our feeds within Xero Personal of late, but we’ve recently improved some aspects of our integration with Yodlee, so you should find that feeds are working better. If you do have problems with a particular bank, please let our customer care team know.
We regret that Xero Personal for iPhone is not currently available for BNZ Money Map users.
Developing Xero Personal for Native
Xero Personal for iPhone signals a change in our mobile development strategy, discussed earlier this year in Making Mobile Work. New versions of Xero Touch for our business product are in active development for iOS and Android and aren’t too far away. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to.
We’re hiring mobile developers
We’re looking for great mobile developers, and we’re particularly interested in talking to developers with Android development skills. Who knows, you could help bring Xero Personal to Android. We’re keen to talk to Auckland-based developers too. So if you’ve got game, get in touch.
If you want to do mobile development but don’t have experience, you might want to look at our Xero School of Mobile. We’re considering running a course to transition established commercial software developers to a native mobile development career.
Lots to do, and lots of opportunities for the right people. Fun times!
