I'm trying it out, seems like a big ask for someone to go and type out all their expenses. Have you considered ways to automate this? (A.K.A. link you bank account and get the info)

@diegozaks1 Lead dev here. Yes, in the future versions we'll let you connect to your bank / credit card. And did you know that the bot understands emojis? Try sending it a food emoji for fun ;) Checkout the new features here:

@urieli17 Hey Uri, thanks for the kind comment, appreciate it. We are striving hard to solve the problem of expense tracking. We believe chat is the answer to a simplified way to log the expenses. If there is any feature you would like us to add, we would love to explore it. Cheers

UPDATE: emojis, receipt recognition, and receipt management added to the bot.

Monty Frugal is a Messenger-based bot that helps you keep track of your expenses, receipts, and helps you stay in budget. It answers complicated questions like 'how much did I spend on food between 1/1/2016 and 1/5/2016', makes charts, sends reminders, and even asks you to tweet about it. More here:

Cool bot! Great for me for me as I'm in france where linking bank accounts is rare so I don't miss that feature. I do miss a couple other features: 1) adding historical expenses. If I want to start using this I need to add all my July expenses so far or wait until Aug 1 for this to be useful. 2) This might be against the concept, but I would love to be able to login somewhere or at least get some type of visualization of my expenses. If I'm going to be typing in all my expenses 1 by 1, I need to have more control of the summary of the data.

@benkimotwichell 1) You can add historical expenses by sending '200 on food 3 days ago' or similar. 2) We do have a pie chart for now. We plan to add more visualizations soon. Also, what kind of summary would you like? :)
