Once upon a time, I was using a budget app called Money Manager and all was going well until I had to settle all my accounts and I realised that it was hard to account for everything perfectly if I was using EcoCash to transact because I would lose track of all the charges EcoCash adds for transacting and this made it a chore to balance the books.
Using Money Manager was clearly a pain because of the lack of integration with local payment methods but now there is an app that can track EcoCash transactions and I think this is a great app whether you decide to use it as a companion to a budgeting app or as a standalone.
So what can you do with ziWallet?
When you initially open the app you’re met with a home page that contains an overview for that month. On this page you’re shown stats like:
- Opening Balance
- Money spent on airtime
- Amount transferred from Bank To Wallet and vice-versa
- Money received
- … and many other stats
The transactions menu contains a summary of the entire amounts you transacted for that month. It shows you how much money entered your EcoCash and how much left the account along with the balance for that month.
The accounts section shows which accounts you have been sending money to or receiving money from. There is no date and time for transactions because it has the collective amounts sent to/from a particular account. If you tap on the account all the transactions made will drop down before you.
The reports section is what makes this app so vital as it details every transaction you made and gives you details on every transaction you made. There is info on which Merchant/Person you sent money to, what day and time the transaction was made, and the amount you sent.
This makes it very easy to reconcile all the transactions you’ve made over a number of months and I think that’s a vital feature if you are concerned about how you use your money or you are trying to follow a saving pattern.
The app is also PIN protected which means not everyone has access to your transaction history and this is a good thing and I guess it will add peace-of-mind for users.
This application is a must-have if you make a number of your transactions through EcoCash and will assist users better track and manage how they spend their money. You might want to take a look at this one.
