Roadmap Update

Here’s a quick update on what we’ve got planned for Buckets for the next three months. While I can’t guarantee when these things will be completed, this is the current plan ordered somewhat close to when we expect they’ll happen.

Budgets, Budgets Everywhere!

Happy New Year! I’m very excited to announce the beta release of Buckets v0.73.0 which includes two major features:

  1. Budgets from different devices can now be merged together
  2. You can now share budgets using a shared network folder

Buckets is one step closer to working seamlessly on mobile!

Why Buckets?

Buckets is a good budgeting app, but it’s not the only app. There are probably hundreds of apps for managing your money. I don’t like to pick on other apps, because honestly, if it works for you that’s great! I’m happy when people are financially successful.

However, Buckets is unique in a few ways that I’d like to highlight. And most of these have very little to do with budgeting.

Buckets 0.72 - Apple Silicon and a New Report

We’re excited to announce the release of Buckets v0.72! Get your copy of the Beta version here!

This release includes a lot of internal changes (updating of software libraries and tools) that were needed to finally support Apple Silicon machines. In addition, Buckets is now also built for Linux ARM64 machines.

AND, there’s a new report under Analysis! It’s a simple Income and Expense report which you can print if you like keeping paper or PDF records of your finances.

September Price Increase Update

As mentioned in March’s blog post, we’re raising the price of a Buckets License to $64 in September. See that post for the full details. The change won’t happen on the 1st of the month—possibly closer to the 10th.

Budgeting Lets You Spend

I’ve always been more inclined to save money than spend it. As a kid, I would buy things here and there and occasionally splurge on something I really wanted (I still remember shelling out for Space Quest 5), but most of my money went to the bank.

Good budgeting meant saving everything. At least in my mind.

If you think like I did, that budgeting means never spending money, this post is for you. If you’re a spendthrift, skip this one :)

Price Increase in September

We’re planning to raise the price of a Buckets v1 License to $64 in September. Hopefully this is enough notice that you can save up to purchase at the current price before then if you’re contemplating getting a license.

Budget Sharing: Relay is Up!

I’m very excited to announce the release of the Bucket Relay! It’s now much easier to share your budget between devices. Let me take you on a tour of how it works and how it keeps your data secure as it travels across the Internet.
