ExpenseTracker - iXchecker for iPhone and iPad has been designed to enable you to create an ongoing record of your income and all of your outgoings, but you might want to tread carefully because there are some dubious aspects to the development.
Something that troubles me about this app is that it requires that you put in your Gmail email address and password in order to access the interface; as you’ll see below, this really does raise some questions surrounding the potential fraudulent nature of the app.
With this app you can create a detailed record of your finances, with the option to choose between daily, weekly, and monthly views based on what works best for you. This means you can record individual transactions to ensure everything is covered.
If you want to export your records then you can do this very easily by moving your records back and forth between your iOS device and computer via Wi-Fi transfer, or by synchronizing them with Google Docs and Picasa Web in MS Office, .PDF, and .HTML file formats.
Dubious Login Requirements
ExpenseTracker - iXchecker also supports passcode protection so that you can keep your records away from prying eyes, but that isn’t enough in my mind to prevent me from feeling a little concerned.
I would strongly recommend looking at the Pros & Cons section of this review below because one user has reported that logging into this app saw their Gmail account subsequently accessed by someone in India.

There are some issues surrounding the backing up of data via Google Docs, especially in .CSV file format, and this appears to be highly temperamental in nature
What’s more, there appear to be some concerns surrounding the fact that you have to input your Gmail username and password in order to access this app; this raises questions regarding possible fraudulent activities as one user reported that after logging in they subsequently received notification that their Google account had been accessed from India
I’m not sure if ExpenseTracker - iXchecker is an attempt at phishing or data mining but I would recommend looking elsewhere until the developer has done more to instill some confidence in this iPhone and iPad app.
