Moneyhero - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I've spent almost half of my life developing: more than 12 years. It's one of my passions, I love creating tools that can be useful and can make one's life or work easier.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

When I became interested in mobile development, it was frustrating to know that I had to learn 2 programming languages to create an app. If I wanted it to work on Android and iOS I had to learn Java (for Android) and Objetive-C (for iOS), so I started researching cross-platform framework and that's when I discovered React Native, a fantastic Framework that allows you to build native apps for both environments (Android and iOS).

My name is Diego Pascual, I'm a Spanish developer with more than 12 years of experience. I live in Madrid. I have worked in well-known Spanish Startups and different sectors such as Fintech, Movers, SEO...mainly as a Front-end developer. In my free time, in addition to cooking delicious Spanish "Tortillas" and "Paellas", I do personal projects. The latest was Moneyhero, which I enjoyed doing very much.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

The apps I use the most in my day to day life are Slack and Trello. As I work remotely, communication with my team and organization is fundamental. To keep myself informed of the technological news I use Flipboard: what I like most about it is the ability to filter by the topics that really interest you and show you the right content. Another of my favorites is Fiverr, where you have a whole freelancers community that you can hire to do a lot of work and at a very good price.

How long have you been working on this app?

When I finished Moneyhero I was surprised, because I looked back and saw that it has only been 3 months (and only working in my free time and some weeks of my vacation). The key was choosing React Native to build it (with only one code, the app works on Android and iOS).

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

They say that there are three important things in life: health, money and love :) I looked at one of them, money. I think everyone has the need to manage their finances in an easy way. Many people also ask themselves, "How can I save?" or "How do I make ends meet?" Moneyhero's trying to help those people.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I developed Moneyhero primarily for myself, I didn't find a financial or savings app that I liked. Most of the existing financial apps are too complicated or have an old and unfriendly design. Moneyhero is more than an app for personal finance, it is a saving method. The main difference with the rest of the apps is that Moneyhero tells you how much you can spend a day to achieve the savings goal you have set yourself. Moneyhero also calculates if you are going to make ends meet (according to your spending rate). It's the only app that does this. Another important difference between Moneyhero and other financial apps is that it's super handy and easy to use, as well as its design and the way it displays data.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Moneyhero has only been in stores for a month. It is growing very fast (more than 2k users in just a month). Some users have requested the possibility of adding another person in Moneyhero, to manage finances together. So I think it will be one of the future new features, in addition to being able to send notifications to notify users of their savings progress or how much they are spending.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I would ask them to use the app, test it, see how they like money and take their personal finances in an easy way. Moneyhero is a personal project, without any help or funding, I would appreciate it if you would share the app with your friends on your networks and that all suggestions for improvements are sent to us through the Moneyhero Help section.
