Common Purchases

Common Purchases iPhone/iPod Touch App is live on iTunes.

Common Purchases is built around the fact that most of our purchases are repetitive and similar. Whenever you buy a small cup of coffee from Starbucks, all you need to do is click a button to add it to your purchases. No need to re-enter the information every time you make that purchase.

√ Common Purchases lets you create your own customizable items/categories with a simple elegant interface. Once you create your item with a name, default price and a customizable image (From your photo library, Camera, or use one of the bundled icons in the App). After that, with 2 clicks you have your purchase stored. Of course you have the option to do any necessary adjustments at the time of purchase if you desire so.

√ Have you ever forgot where you made a purchase and want to look up the location of a purchase? Common Purchases lets you view the location of your purchase on Google Maps within the App itself! You can treat items as categories or a single common item. It has never been faster or easier to track your purchases on your iPhone/iPod Touch.

√ Track your deposits too. With an elegant interface you can add fast deposits, and if you like, attach an image with your deposit (e.g. image of a check).

√ You can view all your purchases & deposits through an easy & gorgeous interface. Filter them by a specific date, month or item/category name.

√ Common purchases also provides with nice and simple to view reports on your Balance. With a beautiful bar graph you can view your balance summarized weekly, monthly, or yearly.


- Add/Delete/Modify your own customizable items/categories.
