Very often I am finding money; usually coins or small bills that have been lost or dropped.  Am wanting an app that would keep track of this over time, break-down amounts by currency found and type (coins, bills, some of both) (example: 13 nickels, two $1 bills) and total dollar amount found (examples: today $2.25, 2009 $31.47) and could compare or graph this information.  Would also like an option to enter the location of where it was found, have the app keep track of recurring locations (mall parking lot, city park, etc...) and list or graph totals over time by location.  Was thinking this would almost be a great smart-phone app, but whatever platform would be cool!  Thanks!

Well, sure . . . I have used a pen and paper before to keep track of it too!  Just thought it could possibly be a cool app!  Don't know anything about coding, but it seems like a pretty simple project for someone who does it.  Appreciate your interest! (-:

Sounds like an interesting idea, I can't code worth anything in Java (took two college classes in it and learned lots, but nothing actually applicable or practical for real-world use) so I can't help ya out on the smartphone (Android) front. For Windows, it could be done somewhat simply in .NET (VB/C#), but I couldn't do anything fancy with graphing and whatnot. If nobody else shows an interest, I might take it up, but there are much smarter people here that could do this a million times better than myself. Hopefully someone will take this on, I really like the idea smiley

I've taken a stab at this, and I give you "Tracker of Found Money 1.0.0.0":



Features Implemented thus far:

  • ability to add money found, including date found, number of each type of coin or bill, and the location where you found it.
  • ability to search saved files in a particular date range, to return all "I found money on this date" files in that range.
  • ability to click on one of the found files to view the particulars of that find.
  • ability to add custom "locations found" to the drop-down comboBox





You can download it by going to My Downloads Page.  It's the first program in the table (at least, it's first at the time of this posting), and is about a 348 Kb download for the setup program.

Possible future improvements:

  • ability to sum all found money between two dates
  • graphing of data

Any chance of you coming up with a companion app that finds money for you to keep track of? smiley

I'd be more than happy to purchase a license!  Grin

Updated to version 1.0.0.1 after replacing iffy string compare method with DateTime.Compare() for comparing the dates in a search of past saved files. 

Anyone using program should update using "Help"->"About"->"Update".

Don't have time right now, but in the next couple days I'm gonna try to extend the functionality to more fully realize the OP's specifications.

You should now update to version 1.0.0.2, which adds summing of "Found Money" across multiple records.  You can update from within the program: "Help"-"About"->"Update".

I think this now covers the primary functionality requested by the OP:

(1) a breakdown of each "Found Money"'s coins and bills
(2) ability to see totals across a range of dates.

Glad you find it to your liking, caddo smiley  Makes the time and effort completely worthwhile for me cheesy 

Enjoy it, and feel free to share it around.  Also, have a look at my other programs to see if there's anything else there you might find useful.

Later...

Can we consider this coding snack "Done"/"Solved", and move it to the Finished sub-forum?

I've updated the program to version 1.0.0.4.  Use "Help"->"About"->"Update".

Now, not only do you get the total money across any range of dates that you search, but you also have the option to click a button and get that money broken down into the total number of each type of coin or bill.  Doesn't matter if you have two or two-hundred past "Finds" in the date range...

Version 1.0.0.5 is released.

This update includes the following:


A new custom icon, as well as (IMHO) an improved form background graphic (oink, oink)...




New menu items "Search by Criteria" (not yet fully implemented), "Delete Records" (fully implemented), and "Restore Default Locations" (fully implemented)




A functional "Credits" button:



Feedback is welcome.  The "Search by Criteria" method will allow the user to do database-like queries, e.g., "show me all records in which there are at least two dimes and three quarters..."

Version 1.0.0.6 is released.  This version compacts the menus a bit, and gives a bit more flexibility in handling file deletions and the combobox contents:
