Desire: An App To Track The Things You Want

In the next few weeks, I think I'm going to buy an iPad 2 and a new MacBook Pro. Not to mention a pair of new headphones, some cool gloves compatible with the iPhone and a bunch of other things I've found online. To track these items and the money required to buy them, I might just use this neat new iPhone app by Michal Grossmann and Maros Holly called Desire that's aimed at letting you keep track "and manage your savings for the things you always wanted so much".

In the main screen of Desire, you can enter the items you want to keep track of. From the "new desire" screen you can choose a name, and set a price. Once you've got some desires added in the database, you can deposit and withdraw money to visualize your savings for a specific item. The interface and animations in the single item view are simply beautiful, with a progress bar that display how much money you've saved and two buttons to add or remove cash. A "show history" button lets you see your log of withdrawals and deposits in the past weeks. It's a very simple approach that's also great to look at.

Desire is available at $0.99 in the App Store. Give it a try if you're looking for a gorgeous app to manage the things you're dreaming of.
