There are several traits that set My Expenses apart from the myriad of other expense tracking apps for Android. Firstly, My Expenses is an open source app, and it's available on both Google Play Store and F-Droid. More importantly, though, the app strikes a perfect balance between functionality and ease-of-use.

The app lets you set up multiple accounts and track expenses for each account. Recording an expense is a single-step procedure that involves only a few taps. To track expenses more efficiently, the app allows you to create categories and assign them to expenses and income records. You can then view all expenses by category to get a better idea of your spending habits. The app makes it possible to group all entries by different criteria like date. This way, you can easily see how much you spend every day. My Expenses also makes it possible to export data in the QIF format, which you can then import into a desktop application like HomeBank or Buddi. In addition to that, the backup feature can be used to save the app's settings and data.

Some of My Expenses' features, such as split transactions, are not available in the stock version of the app. To unlock them you have to contribute to the project either by buying the Contrib app on Google Play or donating directly to the author via PayPal.
