Excellent App

I have been using this app now for about a week and finding that it’s a joy and useful utility. I love how it asks you if it can use your location in order for it to find the sales tax for your list. This is very helpful when you don’t know it or want to confirm what you believe it to be. I actually knew it and the app was able to reinforce the sales tax amount in my region. It even gave me the location in which I was in when figuring the sales tax automatically. Nice! I had some ideas about future features for the app and contacted the developer. I got a prompt response the following day. This is also a big thumbs up since users want to feel confident that their outreach is not falling in the round file pile. Another feature that I like is the sharing options and the recipient’s ability to add or change things if the option to have the user ( s ) perform this is enabled. This can also be disabled at anytime. Sweet! Adding an image to your list is a beautiful thing as well. All in all I think this app has got a wonderful start and looking forward to its development. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone wishing to add details regarding cost and other items which this app is packed with.

Exactly What I Needed

I really enjoy using Spend Stack and learned about it after listening to the Launched Podcast. It is an incredibly useful activity to monitor expenses and have special lists for different types of expenses. The UI is great, the app is simple and intuitive and has already helped me out immensely. One thing I would like to suggest is the ability to split the cost between multiple people. For example, being able to use it to track shared bills if living with other people to see how much each person would have to pay for monthly rent. I track several shared expenses and right now I calculate it manually and put the number as a note to remember, but I think it would be a great option to be able to show split payments. I appreciate all the hard work of the developer and would love to see this app continue to be a part of my daily workflow.

Outstanding App. !!

Spend stack is not simply just a list maker, it’s much, much more than that. It actually lets you know just “how much” you’re spending. Once you enter in an items cost; sales tax is applied automatically, so it takes the guesswork out of what your final bill will be. Use “tags,” and you can group all similar items together. The developer is continually making improvements, and now you can add a photo to items in case you might need it for your next shopping trip. In addition, lists and info. sync. across multiple devices making it even more handy. Customer service is excellent; questions get answered usually within 24 hours. All things considered, this app. Is definitely worth having. I highly recommend it!
