TrackMySPEND

TrackMySpend app iconUpdates and downloads will end 7 August

From 7 August 2019 no further updates will be made to the MoneySmart TrackMySPEND app. The app will also no longer be available for download from the App store or Google Play.

Here we provide information on other ways to track your spending, accessing your TrackMySPEND data and how to provide feedback.

Other apps and tools to track your spending

There are several different ways you can track your spending instead.

Use another app

There are numerous free and paid spender tracker and money management apps available to download on the App store and Google Play.

Some apps offer more options, such as setting spending limits and reminders, and seeing your expenses at a glance.

Look at your statements and receipts

When you use a debit or credit card, every transaction is recorded for you.

You can view or download these transactions using online banking, or look at your hard-copy statements or receipts.

You can also look at the money management tools your bank offers.

Write it down

Write down every dollar you spend in a spreadsheet or on paper. Include the amount, item (or store name) and date. You should do this for both cash and card purchases.

Do this as you spend, or set a reminder to do it once a day, using your receipts.

Why TrackMySPEND updates are ending

While the app has been popular over time, its core design and functionality is ageing. Despite updates, the age of the app makes it increasingly unstable. More up-to-date tools and apps which have integrated banking data are being offered by other providers.

Ending updates to TrackMySpend enables us to develop the next generation of tools and services on MoneySmart.

Can existing users keep using TrackMySPEND?

You will be able to continue using TrackMySPEND if it is already downloaded on your phone. However it will no longer be supported or updated and you won't be able to sync your data between devices. Over time, your phone software may also become incompatible with the app.

Getting a copy of your TrackMySPEND data

There are two ways you can download a copy of your data.

Using the app

Complete the following steps:

  1. Open the app
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Click on Export

This will allow you to download the data as a CSV file.

Online

Using the export my data page you can download the data as a CSV file. 

I use your TrackMyGOALS app. Will this still be available?

TrackMyGOALS will also no longer be updated or available for download from 7 August 2019.

You can use the savings goals calculator to work out how long it will take to reach your savings goals.

Thank you for using our services. We look forward to developing the next generation of tools and services on MoneySmart.
