Take Two: Toshl Launches Version 2.0 for iOS and Web

ToshlFinance_homepage_Dec2016

Toshl Finance is calling version 2.0 of its popular personal finance management app a “major upgrade” as well as a “rethink and rebuild” of its previous offerings.

The company says the new features of the upgrade are too numerous to mention. But Toshl is highlighting enhancements like the ability to manage multiple financial accounts, new data visualizations, and a better system of organizing categories, tags, and accounts.

Talking about the changes in a post at the Toshl blog, the company notes that the majority of enhancements came from suggestions from Toshl users. And while the company recognizes that some users will be happier with the changes than others, Toshl plans a full suite of tutorials to help users get acquainted with Toshl 2.0.

“We are thrilled to have the new apps finally released,” the company announced on its blog. “This is a new solid foundation we can build on to bring improvements at a much greater speed and quality than before.” Currently available only on iOS and the web, Toshl plans to provide Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10 versions of the platform in the first half of 2016.

Toshl was listed in Benzinga’s list of top 10 PFM apps for teens and young adults in July, and in June was highlighted in Money Under 30’s look at top personal finance apps. Liverpool Echo added Toshl Finance to its list of “must-have apps” for busy moms in January.

Founded in April 2012, Toshl Finance has offices in both Kranj, Slovenia, and Mountain View, California. The company made its Finovate debut at FinovateEurope 2014, winning Best of Show honors. Matic Bitenc is CEO.
