Desktop version and sync
Congratulations on Financisto. It's an excellent application but misses a desktop application with 2-way sync. Analysing data on desktop is way better (IMO). It would cover a huge gap into Android expenses tracker applications.

Desktop has bigger screen, so yes, its more pleasant working on a desktop. Android is for on-the-go.
Financisto team should surely make a PC- or Web-based version.
Absolutely!!! Maybe at least a cross-platform pc-version (not per se web based), if unable to provide cloudservice. Or, make a free one for personal use and sell paid one for firms. Or, use add-supported cloudservice, like wave does (just dont make android version add-supported).
+1 I think that would be great a desktop version to interact and transmit data. Maybe you could take some ideas from JFinancas software to a desktop ver. or to improve this Andriod one.
+1 for the idea, I think a web based and a sync through several devices could be great
I am not voting for this option! I wish I could use my votes to deduct from this option...
I can explain why.
There is plenty of things that still needs to be improved in this programm.
The creation of the desktop version will take all the time, efforts and resourses of the development team. It will leave the mobile version without improvement or slowly developing and the programm will lose in competition with other financial programms.
That's a kind of thing happened to Inesoft team with their Cash Organizer great in WM but weak in Android.
Instead it would be more usefull to put the efforts into the export improvement.
Millions of users are using already different desktop programms.
They will not switch easily to your desktop version.
Give them the possibiility to start using using your programm!
Develop the export functions to these programms and especially put all your efforts to improve export to .csv format!

Maybe the better way to do that is put the database file on dropbox or google drive not just on local storage, doing that the desktop or web app can sync the database too
sure wish you had a windows 8 smartphone app
were is win8.1 app?
Thank you so much!!! :D Changes made in Financisto app gets reflected to flowzr.com and vice-versa. Thank you so much!!! Was about to suggest a web interface today but you guys have already done it! Thank you!!

Financisto cloud sync now work fine here : http://www.flowzr.com/
Just being able to sync between a tablet and a phone would be a great start if this is easier to implement as I can't see how to do this other than a backup and restore each time.
The central file could be stored in dropbox as a favourite and an export performed each time before the app chooses so it automatically gets updated. Then if some check could test if it is newer than the database could then do an auto import. This method may then work with a desktop version down the line. Bluestacks and www.socketeq.com could be used in the meantime for desktops.
I hope this makes some kind of sense.
The central file could be

Really great job of android app.
I believe people will be willing to pay for desktop version with sync.
It will be useful for Family financial control and budget.
Let's get it start!!!
Meanwhile, TRY "Home budget with sync" or "Cashbase" in Android market
They all can be synced with multiple devices and web version.

hi, thank you so much for creating Financisto, such an excellent app!
when are we having the desktop expanssion? it would be fantastic and very handy when you are reconciling accounts on your desktop.
Please, please please create a desktop client for Financisto.
Thank you so much!
desktop version as in, a financisto chrome app, which syncs with financisto on phone will be great! the chrome app on bigger screen will provide a better visualization on charts and trends of spending, and easier managing when the user is on desktop.
anyway, thanks a lot on the great app, love financisto very much! really look forward for this feature, please~

Please consider Financisto Desktop, would be very usefull!!!
Much needed! Having this capability via a web based and synced platform will allow me to sync across devices and operating systems ( I also work from a company issued iPad).

+1 to Desktop client + sync via dropbox or similar

PS - this could also be achieved by folks interested in this in just developing an add-on for GnuCash (or something like it) which could read the file formats used by Financisto. N
