NANY 2012 Entry Information
Application Name Found MoneyVersion 1.0.1.6 Short Descriptionmanage your pocket change or "found money" and track it over time...Supported OSes Windows XP forward Setup File link to download setup filePAD file URLhttp://kyrathaba.dcmembers.com/my_programs/FoundMoney/FoundMoney_PAD.xmlSystem Requirementsrequires .NET 4.0 Framework (installer will D/L and install it if needed)Author Infocoded by kyrathaba | Profile page | Kyrathaba DC page | author of Kyrathaba's Source Code Line Counter. My past NANY entries include: Crocus Contacts, Blackjack, and NANY Excuse Manager.DescriptionWe all do it: find a dime on the sidewalk, or a quarter in the floorboard of our vehicle.  Lots of people pick these up as "found money".  Superstitious people sometimes make sure the coin is heads-up first, though :)  And many people empty their pockets at the end of the work-day, and save their pocket change.  I myself have a separate coffee mug for each coin type: pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters.  Naturally, each mug is a DC mug...

I've been doing this for a long time.  Several times over the years I've emptied a big jar of coins and cashed out $200 to $350 at my local bank.  Wouldn't it be nice if there was a program, preferably FREE, that tracked this "found money" (or the money your kid sticks in his or her piggy-bank)?  Well, thankfully, DC member caddo requested just such an app and, intrigued, I created it.  I give you "Found Money"!  For anyone wanting background on this app, you may refer to [url=http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=27207.0]this link.
Features
* add each "find", specifying the number of each type of coin and bill found, the location it was found, and the date.
* edit previously saved files (maybe you accidentally assigned the wrong date, or got the number of quarters wrong, etc.)
* show and browse data for all saved records, or for a subset of those records falling inclusively between two dates
* intelligently query the records: "Now what day was that when I found the silver dollar in the men's lavatory?"
* pie charts visually show the ratio of coins to other coins, bills to other bills

* alongside the pie charts is a textual breakdown of coin/bill percentages, both of total coins vs bills, and in terms of overall moneyScreenshotsInstallationuse the Inno Setup installerUsing the applicationAny special pointers about using the app should go here...Uninstallinguse Windows' Add/Remove Programs applet, or your favorite uninstaller, or the built-in Inno Setup uninstaller

Ath:
Hey, it's a release :up: (you could probably drop the 'early beta' IMHO :D)

Feature request:

* Option to switch the currency used. I never see or find US$, Euro's are much more likely (hint: localization)

Maybe that should have said: It's early, and it's beta, but not an early beta ;D

kyrathaba:
Localization would make the app more broadly usable.  Thanks for the suggestion, Ath!  I'll keep it in mind for a future update  :up:

kyrathaba:
Major Update v1.0.1.3 fixes a bug or two and introduces pie-charting of record data.  Update to this version from within the program by using file menu items "Help"->"About"->"Update", then following the instructions.
