Tired of all the cumbersome, complicated, and feature-heavy spending tracker apps in the iPhone App Store, I built my own. I think that 99% of people don't need to categorize their purchases or set up detailed budgets to follow the "spend less and save more" advice we've all received at one point or another. All they need is to know how much they've spent today, this past week, or over whatever time period they're interested in. Spender lets you do exactly that. All feedback is welcome and appreciated.
