Just starting a thread to list bugs encountered by Moneydance Android beta users.

v: July 25
All accounts have $0 balance in the account list despite all accounts having transactions and the correct running balance in the individual account registers.

    I have two Android phones both running Moneydance Mobile app 2.0 beta 25 Jul 2019.

    Android 6.0.1 phone.
    On clicking the MD icon I get the message “Unfortunately Moneydance has stopped”. Reported to Sean the software developer.

    New Android 9 phone
    Initial sync time = 2 minutes 55 seconds, guess depends on internet speed.
    After initial sync all value on account list screen were £0.00. Account list filled the screen, not all my accounts were listed. No scrolling. Balances and transaction within listed accounts looked OK.
    Waited a further 10 minutes, no change.
    Completely close app and reopen. After 3 seconds loading time, all accounts were present, scrolling worked. Balances on account list screen were now correct. Transaction within all accounts looked OK. Reported to Sean the software developer with some other layout improvement suggestions,

    His comment some of the listed issue are fixed in a about to be released new beta.

    As suggested by above post Sean has updated
    Now 2.0 3 Aug 2019

    Android 6.0.1 phone. No change.
    On clicking the MD icon I get the message “Unfortunately Moneydance has stopped”. Reported to Sean the software developer.

    New Android 9 phone
    Initial sync time = 2 minutes 40 seconds, guess depends on internet speed and data set size, I don’t have any attachments.
    After initial sync all value on account list screen were £0.00 but now a new message appears indicating syncing is still in progress. Message lasted about 40 seconds. After the message closed there was no change. However, tests showed closing and opening the app at this point, including background instance fixed the issue, waiting (further 10 minutes) did not.
    My Layout improvement suggestions incorporated.

    For me it seems to work now, syncing to and from.

    Does the month part of the date not display properly for dates in August and March for anyone else ?

    3rd August Beta version on Android 9

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    Also running 3rd August 2.0 beta on Android 9 phone Samsung Galaxy A40.
    August and March dates look OK on my phone, see screen shot of a section of my phone screen for March.

    Attached is what dates in August look like on my phone. The same problem happens for dates in March.

    It's interesting that the dates on my phone display with a "." after the abbreviated month, and they don't in the screenshot you posted. That "." is causing the text to wrap and Aug.
    and Mar. to display strangely.

    Hi md

    I have posted a link for this thread to Sean the software developer so he is aware of your issue.

    Hope this helps.

    One more data point -- the dates on my phone look fine. Android 9 (Android One) on Nokia 6.1. Latest MD beta.

    I worked out why there is a difference in the way the dates are displayed.

    I'm in Australia, so I have English(Australia) selected. When I change this to English(United States), I see the same date format as you do, with just "Aug" displayed. When English(Australia) is selected, the format changes to "Aug." and there is a problem with the date being displayed in Moneydance.

    Hi md

    Good catch, for the record my phone is set to English (United Kingdom).

    I attempted to try out the Android Beta on my Moto X (running Anroid 7.0) today.

    The app wouldn't start -- no "not responding" or "this app has stopped" messages, just a momentary flash of the screen and then nothing.

    I have reverted to the non-Beta version.

    Hi Richard.

    Asked Sean the Moneydance software developer what is the earliest version of Android that Android mobile 2.0 beta will work on. This is his answer

    “at the moment it will be 7.1.1 (Nougat), but that could change. I can't see it going down though”

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info Derek.

    Hopefully when the new version is released the old version will remain available for those of us with slightly older phones ...

    Richard.

    Hi Richard.

    I also asked Sean the Moneydance software developer if the existing Android mobile build would still be available. This is his answer

    “I believe that 1.15 should be available for people with older devices after 2.0 is released.”

    Hope this helps.
