Daily Expense Tracker Android App Project SRS Documentation

ABSTRACT

As the name itself suggests, this project is an attempt to manage our daily expenses in a more efficient and manageable way. Sometime we can’t remember where our money goes. And we can’t handle our cash flow.

For this problem, we need a solution that everyone can manage their expenses. So we decided to find an easier way to get rid of this problem. So, our application attempts to free the user with as much as possible the burden of manual calculation and to keep the track of the expenditure.

Instead of keeping a diary or a log of the expenses, this application enables the user to not just keep the control on the expenses but also to generate and save reports.

With the help of this application, the user can manage their expenses on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Users can insert and delete transactions as well as can generate and save their reports.

The graphical representation of the application is the main part of the system as it appeals to the user more and is easy to understand.
