Can I run it on Android 2.3 ?
Yes. Kashdroid requires 2.3 (GingerBread) or above. (Android API Level 9)
What about security ?
The app uses Kashflow.com’s secure API, which works over SSL.
It does not talk to Pale Purple or any other third parties – except for use of Google analytics (which you can turn off in the Settings, should you so wish).
Google analytics is there to help us understand how people are using the app – i.e. which bits are popular.
In order to talk to Kashflow.com, you have to enable API access from within your Kashflow account settings page before the app can work.
I was using Kashdroid and it crashed!
Please click the ‘Report’ button if you see the crash dialog. The app may also write error logs at /sdcard/Kashdroid/errors – you may need to install a File browser app (like Astro) to find these. If you could email these files to us, they would be most appreciated.
What if I have questions/suggestions ?
As a short summary – we respect your privacy and do not have access to any personal or identifying information from the app’s users – except what Google Play services makes available to us (subscriber email address, device information and payment amount).
The Kashdroid app communicates directly with Kashflow’s API (see https://securedwebapp.com/api.php, when logged in to Kashflow to enable/disable this).
The security of this connection is reliant on Kashflow.com and your local device. The connection is made over HTTPS using industry standard encryption.
Authentication and Passwords
The Kashdroid app performs authentication using Kashflow’s API.
So, if you change your API password within Kashflow, you’ll need to re-authenticate within the app.
Only devices you authorise (through using the app) and Kashflow.com have access to your Kashflow.com information.
The app does not transmit any data to Pale Purple or any other third parties (except: the above mentioned Google Analytics).
Data Access / Control
Pale Purple does does not have access to your login information, company details or any other identifying information (except possibly if it’s submitted by you in an Android bug report, which you’re able to check before submission).
Subscriptions and Payment Details
Pale Purple does not directly handle your subscription to the app, or any payment information you provide to pay for the subscription – these are all handled by Google’s Play Store.
Google make your email address, subscription date and subscription amount available to us through standard reporting functionality.
