Just hit $200 MRR / $2,405 ARR w/ my first software company.✨

I started my company Chromabill (https://www.chromabill.com/) out of a necessity. College didn't teach me about financial literacy and I wanted a simple way to manage my expenses.

I loved using spreadsheets but Excel on mobile was clunky and not mobile-friendly. That motivated me to create an app to help organize my expenses, see how much my average monthly spending was, and stay on top of my bills.

Little did I know that what I had built would work for so many others! I know it's not hugely impressive but $200 MRR is still a win nevertheless!

    Amazing, congratulations! Website looks dope.

    Little point of feedback:
    I've downloaded the app in the App Store, but it is not called ChromeBill, but Budg.
    This is a little confusing to me, but I saw the screenshots so I guess it's just the same.

      Hey Justin! The app is called Chromabill. You might be mistaking it with Budg built by another cool founder: Matthew https://t.co/PN6x5bx6gM - My app may not be available in your country yet!

      Also, when I tap: "Sign in with Google", I get the following (native) pop-up:

      "mobile" Wants to Use "expo.io" to Sign In.

      Since this app is related to by expenses, and thus probably will access my bank account/transactions (I'm just assuming this), this seems not trustworthy to me.

      Just wanted to share this to you as feedback :). Hope it helps.

    Great app! Are you planning to add investments (data from brokerage account) as a category? It can be a source of income or a loss.

      Thanks 🙏 ☺️ Definitely a worthy milestone worth celebrating!
