Release Notes

So, I’ve been trying to get the devs here to make it so that when you search in YNAB, it plays U2’s “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in the background. But I guess there are potential copyright issues…and I’ll concede that the song might wear on you, especially if you really can’t find what you’re looking for. Instead, though, this release makes a few improvements so that you can find what you’re looking for:

  • Previously, if you searched for some text that included a number (i.e. “2020 Ultimate Muffin Party”) we would also return transactions that had a matching amount (i.e. $2,020.00). That was a little presumptuous of us. Jeez, YNAB, not everything needs to be about money…sometimes it can just be about muffins, OK.
  • Before this update, searching for memos that included colons “:” would not work. Now they work, and you can finally search for all of the movie sequels you have purchased by their full names…The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly’s Gold…we got you.

Lastly, the modal (popup) for adding a sub category wasn’t opening in the correct place. It was more of a failed prototype for a game we like to call Whack-a-Modal. But now, it will show up in the right place.
