Shortcuts are a natural fit for a personal finance app like Moneytree. The Conversational Shortcuts on the latest software for iPhone, iOS 13.1, allows Siri to ask follow-up questions offering more interactive experiences to quickly and easily manage tasks on compatible apps.
With this new release, Moneytree has added the Cash Tracking feature to work on Siri Conversational Shortcuts. All that cash tracking you were doing manually can now be done by simply asking Siri.

Once you set up Shortcuts on your iPhone, you will be able to use the voice command to record your cash spending without opening the Moneytree app. So, when you buy a cup of coffee in the morning or buy lunch with cash, just ask Siri to add that transaction to Moneytree.
