Ability to see how much I can spend today while avoiding a deficit
One way I use this app is, if I want to know how buying something would affect my financial forecast in the long run I put it in as an expense and see if I go in to a deficit in the next year, but it would nice if I could could see how much I can spend for each day of the year while allowing me to not go into a deficit and still be able to pay all upcoming bills.
How much we can spend today to avoid deficit is closely related to the timeframe in question. For just today it’s your account balance obviously but on an annual basis, this would be essentially the minimum account (category) balance visible on the graph for the entire year of forecast.
Additionally, Cash Cast allows for a quick single transaction to be set just to see how it impacts up to the 3 years of available forecasts. It can always be removed subsequently with just a swipe if it does not pan out.
We are open to any ideas you may have how to make this more useful or user friendly for a simple “scenario” situation.
