New Watch apps previewed: MoneyWiz and MileWiz

MileWiz for Apple Watch teaser 001

Ahead of its wearable release in April, Apple invited select developers to submit their Watch apps for the inclusion in the App Store. We’ve already seen previews of Todoist, we know eBay is working on a bidding Watch app and Nimblebit even created a puzzle game for it.

And now, developer SilverWiz has posted a pair of previews of its two productivity apps for the device: the personal finance app MoneyWiz 2 and the automatic mileage tracking software MileWiz.

“We wanted to allow you to enter transactions on the go, without taking your phone out of your pocket,” developers wrote. “We also wanted to allow you quick access to your accounts balances.”

MoneyWiz presents you with the four basic buttons on the main screen: Expense, Income, Accounts and Settings. To create an expense or income, you’ll first enter the amount, then choose the account, the category and optionally the payee.

The transaction is then posted into MoneyWiz, where you can optionally edit it. Force-touching on any account on the Accounts screen brings up an additional menu with the option to quickly create an income or an expense report.

Here’s a short video demonstration.

The app even includes seven themes that match the color of your Watch.

The MileWiz Watch app will be available free for all MileWiz users and includes several features, among them the ability to see the current status of MileWiz (Paused, Idle or Driving), browse uncategorized trips and categorize them directly from the Watch and enable or disable the Auto-tracking feature.

As you know, the Apple Watch uses Wi-Fi and GPS from your iPhone for network connectivity and location services, respectively.

MoneyWiz 2 is available in the App Store and Mac App Store.

MileWiz is a free download from the App Store.
