This PWA app will help you control your spending.
This PWA app will help you control your spending. How much do we spend per month? Surely there were situations when you asked for a loan from your friends, from neighbors, from subscribers on Twitter. This business is not very pleasant and makes you suffer every day just from the thought that you owe something to someone. The application “Heavy” (tzlvt) will come to the rescue . It will allow you to better control expenses by displaying on the screen the amount that you can spend per day. The peculiarity of the application is that it is available both on Google Play and the App Store, and on the web! You can install it using progressive web application technologies. I did just that.
When you open tzlvt, you will notice that the usual browser menu has disappeared, but the application itself works on the web without being installed directly into the device’s memory. This is where a certain uniqueness of such a solution is manifested – it is cross-platform and not tied to the operating system.
What is PWA?
This is a progressive web application. It is similar to regular websites, but offers additional features such as caching, notifications, and no browser interface. PWAs are fully supported by Google and have access to the smartphone hardware. As of Spring , all major browsers support Progressive Web Apps.
What can “Heavy” do? The settings icon is located in the upper right corner. By clicking on it, a menu will open in which you can select the amount of your monthly salary. After that, the application will calculate how much money you can spend every day. You can also specify the period for which it is planned to allocate the amount, which will allow you not to be tied to wages and months at all. The app is universal in this regard. For example, let’s enter 1000 dollars. In this case, we can spend 60 dollars every day for 30 days. We save the data and go to the main window.
Here we are met by the daily sum. After any spending, you must enter this data into the application using the keyboard at the bottom and press the orange button. Suppose we spent 10 dollars . Enter the value into the app and the daily budget is updated automatically until the orange button is pressed. If you click on it, the data will go into the spending history.
Let’s assume that we decide to spend another 100 dollars, but at the same time we have only 79 dollars left in the daily budget. In this case, the updated daily budget will appear on the screen. You may notice that now we can spend only 89 dollars every day. And this number will decrease if you spend more than the prescribed amount per day. If it turns out that we spend less, these funds will be distributed over all days and our daily budget will increase.
Separately, I would like to note a simple and convenient interface, which, however, can irritate the owners of Android devices due to the similarity with the style of iOS. It would be nice if the application allowed you to change the theme, because the dark option may not be to everyone’s liking. Of the benefits, it is worth noting the fast download. The app loads faster than regular websites. The reason lies in caching. After the first download, PWA applications can even work offline. This is their main advantage.
