So basically, I’ve been really busy extracting few sections from the web version of Ottitia into an app. Been working on this just under two months but not everyday, mainly from 4am to about 8am per day --ish. It’s an iPhone app; Android later when the app has gained momentum.
I know nothing about Swift but thanks to ruby, I could easily convert ruby to swift sooooooooooo this is what I’ve come up with:
Pictures are Sketch but it’s a replica of the working app
The first thing I should see without clicking/tapping anything are figures.
So aim is not to become an accounting app. The more I code, the more it feels like it. The aim was a simple interface that tells me what to give HMRC and keep my income/expenses in the cloud for 5yrs. Got some feedback but that direction was too “heavy” for an MVP and also felt like an accounting app. Dashboard is very basic. Percentages tell you income, expense gain/loss.
Everything you see works. Next to put this in the app store for private beta testing and to move on from there. First I’ll Sketch the ViewController before the actual coding.
From Ruby to PHP to JS to Ruby and now Swift, I really enjoyed the journey. Once in the app store, I’d like to invite a few for testing and feedback on my vision for this app. Ideally, it’s to build my CV while making a little money here and there if I can.

Thoughts? I’m all ears. Peace!
