were discussing the possibility of using multiplatform mobile development
like Appcelerator Titanium and others. But it seems they bring more
challenges than easy solutions.

> The application will allow user to save ofx file to sd card and/or export
it via email. So that users without email account will be able to get the
file via usb and those who like more "software" ways via email. Having
these two options will make the application more user-friendly and I think
this should be enough for the beginning. Cloud drive is a great fresh way
of sharing files, but we decided to keep the project as simple as we can to
successfully accomplish it by the end of the summer. Though cloud sharing
would be a great feature to add later.

Regarding the application localization, it is also out of scope for the
summer. However, Ngewi could develop the application keeping in mind that a
possible localization could be done later [1].
