"PocketMoney got started by users of MPG asking me for an app to track their money for the Newton 16 years ago," said Hardy Macia, founder and CEO of Canterbury, New Hampshire based Catamount Software. "Since then PocketMoney has evolved with user's major requests and my own experience of using it daily for my personal expenses and yearly to run reports to figure out my income taxes. The advanced iPhone platform and its capabilities has allowed me to expand PocketMoney to add pretty charts and budgeting capabilities. Moreover, it has also made it fun again to write software, so I'm looking forward to another 15 years of helping customers bring their financial house into order."
Version 3.0 is a major update of PocketMoney, including speed improvements, bug fixes, and other new features that have been requested by users. The company first focused on improving the user interface as well as reports/charts to make them prettier and easier to use.
