Following the success of the Android version of ExpenZa, Apposition Consulting has now made available the BlackBerry version of the smartphone app for free download in BlackBerry App World, developed due to the persistent requests from South Africa’s BlackBerry users.
Since its launch on 17 May, first day download numbers of the BlackBerry version were more than three times the download numbers for the Android version, Apposition Consulting reports.
ExpenZa aims at helping people make smarter decisions about their finances through the automation of expense tracking by intercepting the expenditure SMS message sent by various banks in South Africa and uses the information contained in that SMS to automatically populate a user’s expense list.
With BlackBerry’s 8520 as the most popular phone in South Africa, developers of the BlackBerry version ensured that the app worked optimally for BlackBerry’s OS5 and higher.
The BlackBerry version offers all the features of the Android version with the exception of the importing of previously received SMSes from your inbox. It includes all the banks catered for by the Android version including ABSA, Capitec Bank, Discovery Card, First National Bank, Investec Bank, Standard Bank, Nedbank and RMB Private Bank and the latest feature that allows users to automatically assign certain merchants to specific categories.
Wim Morris, MD of Apposition Consulting says that “Development of ExpenZa is still ongoing. Some of the exciting developments to look out for are synchronization to a backend and income tracking functionality.”
