Remember the MobiLedger App that we talked about earlier this year? This was the mobile money Android app developed by Gedion Moyo, the guy who also worked on an EcoCash app.
Now, MobiLedger (available for download from this Google Play link) has gone through some changes with a revamped User Interface and the introduction of a bill scheduling feature.
Mobiledger was introduced as an “accounting service” for mobile money, working specifically for EcoCash. The app lets you keep track of all your transactions, record your m-money financial history and categorise different uses of your mobile funds.
Besides the latest changes to the MobiLedger UI, there’s the transaction scheduling function that gives users an option to automate bill payments that you make regularly through your mobile wallet. The same function can be used for money that is sent regularly to individual EcoCash users.
Merchant payments and regulars like DStv or fees can be scheduled by setting a due date when the payment is due. When the date arrives, an alarm is set off and you can select, by tapping on the notification, whether a payment should be made or the notification should just be dismissed.
If an automated payment is approved, the USSD codes for the transaction will be run in the background with a prompt for the subscriber’s PIN. There is no limit on the transactions that can be scheduled set by the app, this limit is set by the phone’s memory.
MobiLedger started off as an EcoCash only app, but it has been extended to Telecash with this new update still being tested for use on the Telecash wallet.
