I appreciate the responses I’ve gotten so far. Keep it up!
@RickRoll First by understanding the problem a bit better. I’m working on an app a budgeting and receipt scanning app. When I started showing some people I realized a couple things.
Primarily, the app I started building already exists on the play store. The problem was when I was searching I couldn’t find it because it’s only on Taiwan’s google play store (not in the US region). You can only change your google play region once a year. Even though I kind of just want to use that app now, I’m not sure if I want to change my region just for this app and then not be able to change it the region back for a year.
When I did research earlier, I did find some receipt scanning apps that are also accessible from the US app store. However, these didn’t have the budgeting features that I wanted. Before in the US I bought everything with a credit card and every month I could visit my bank’s website and see how much I spent on what category and try to adjust my spending accordingly.
Also of course I can’t “solve” the problem of spending too much money for everyone, but I think I can build something that can help me spend less money or be more aware of my spending. I’m trying to see if I can build something that is useful to others too.
