QMR for Android New Update! v2.6.0



Did you update to the latest version of Quick Money Recorder? We just released the 2.6.0 version for Android which introduces a few new changes. Follow the guide…

A new menu design

We like clear and simple to navigate user interface. So we reorganized the “Settings” menu in expandable sections. Less scrolling down and a short description of what each action performs are the main benefits to that change. We also give you the option to choose the number of icons you want to display on the main screen to include a quick access to “Graph” and “Calendar”. To enable that option just go to Settings>Display Settings>Customize Home Screen menu. Other minor design amendments include the option to display or hide the note history and the national holidays appearing in red in calendar.

If you wish to know more about the new settings menu, we explained everything here.

A new option of format to export to Excel (Premium Feature)

If you are a spreadsheet aficionado, we introduced another format to export your budget and expenses. If you want to know more about how to perform the procedure, we explained everything here. The “Export Transaction History” option will automatically create an excel sheet with all the transactions made and their details such as the currency or the payment method used. The “Export Monthly Budget” option will show the amounts earned or spent classified by date and category. We hope this choice of format will give you more flexibility when working on budgeting with excel!

QMR is regularly updated because you’re worth it!

Our updates and improvements to Quick Money Recorder are often based on your feedback and requests. Oh and we have to mention that they are important to fix bugs. Our engineers are great and working hard but sometimes there is a small problem…that they fix asap! So please send us your feedback, opinion or just say hello by writing to feedback@smart-idea-apps.com


How do I backup my QMR data?

Wondering how to backup your budget? Anyone who ever experienced a data loss knows how frustrating it can be. “Better safe than sorry”, don’t you agree? We thought that most of you would be happy to learn how to backup your QMR data so we listed a few options below.


I keep my data safe in the Cloud 

QMR provides dedicated cloud storage space to save and sync automatically all your expense data between all your registered devices. Your data will be automatically backed up up each time you make a new entry or when you start the app. If you need more reassurance, just press the circling arrows on QMR’s main screen. The cloud backup is available with a subscription plan which can be paid yearly or monthly. Learn more here.

Manual Backup in Dropbox/GoogleDrive/Evernote

If you prefer using your personal file sharing account, you can backup your data on your personal Dropbox/Evernote or Google Drive account. Please kindly note that you can’t restore saved data files on an Android device.

Manual Backup by email

You can choose to save your expense data via email. Please refer to this blog post to read the steps in detail. Just keep in mind that exporting the file with pictures may not be possible due to file size limitations imposed by your email service provider. The file is already compressed in a zip file but make sure you backup your data regularly so you don’t end up with a file the size of an elephant!

The three backup methods described above are all available via subscription or in app purchase. We endeavor to update Quick Money Recorder regularly and to answer users’requests. You will also ALWAYS receive a reply from us if you have a feedback or problem.


You still have the option to backup your QMR in ios or to proceed to a manual backup in Android. We just cannot guarantee the backup with these methods but we’ll always do our best to assist you!


Introducing QMR’s New Settings Menu

If you have been using QMR for some time you may have noticed that we revamped our menu settings to make it clearer and easier to use. The menu is divided in expandable categories and includes short description of each sub sections.


General Settings: select the currency, language and general customization options

You can choose between 114 international currencies and 6 languages for your QMR application. We also let you set the tax rate which is especially important for small business owners and the order of the expense entries in “List”. If you wish to protect your budgeting data from curious eyes, you can set a passcode to open the app. Don’t worry if you forget your password, we made the reset process easy! The automatic reminder gives you the option to receive a push notification with your budget balance at a chosen time everyday.

Totals/Records Settings: choose what you want to record and set your budget

Not everyone’s budget follows the same patterns and we wanted to give you a lot of customization options. Tired of entering recurrent expense or income? QMR will display monthly recurrent income and expense for you! You can enter your utility bills or salary and choose the date when the transaction is settled.

You can also customize and record the payment method, the shop name and labels. To activate the option, just switch the toggle next to it. You can enter up to different shop names and labels.

Display Settings: what do you want to see?

Each option is pretty self explanatory but we added the option to choose the number of icons to display on the home screen. You may also wonder what is the “opportunity to win” option. We want to encourage our users in tracking their spending so we award you points that you can use to win Amazon gift vouchers! Want to know more? Check our blog post here.

Data: backup, export and sync

You can log into your cloud account, backup your expense entries or export your data in excel. The cloud sync feature enable all your spending and budget data automatic synchronization between all your devices. You need to subscribe to use this feature but we are currently offering a discounted yearly plan with almost 50% off.
