I’m happy to announce Financisto 1.5.3 update. The main functionality:
The long expected QIF and CSV import
QIF is a cumbersome format but it’s very popular in personal finance software and supporting it was vital for Financisto users (second popular request on our Uservoice). QIF import is still experimental and only supports full import – meaning that all current data will be erased the same way as in Database Restore. Supporting partial import is my next todo item.
CSV import is experimental as well Here are the current limitations: only partial import supported into single account, all entities should already be present in the database (categories, project, locations). We’ll work on fixing these limitations in the future releases. It is important to have correct file format for CSV import – it should be in UTF-8 and has the header line like in this example.
To select QIF or CSV file for import you would need a file explorer installed on your phone. OI File manager is a decent open-source app you can use.
Auto-fill category when selecting a payee
Category is now associated with Payee field. When you select a payee, the Category field will be auto-completed with the last used category for this payee.
Fixed the bug with case-sensitive payee search
It was a problem for non-English languages that the search for payee was case-sensitive. There are still some limitations, but at least it will ignore the first letter, so search for “пар” will return both “парковка” и “Парковка”.
