We built Trail Wallet to be fast and easy to use on a day-to-day basis but sometimes you just want to go a little bit deeper.

In this post, we present the lesser-used options and features that you might have missed.

I was doing some research into the design process because it’s always good to go over the fundamentals now and again and I discovered this interesting manifesto from Hugh MacLeod.

You may have heard of him. He’s the guy that draws cartoons on the back of business cards and is now internet famous.

His manifesto is full of great thoughts and insights into being creative, but this one in particular struck me:

Trail Wallet 1.1 is out!

This update introduces a veritable cornacopia of new features as well as an improved design—check out the new video for the lowdown:

Just because you built it, doesn’t mean people will pay for it.

A lot of the old model was built around the idea that artists and creatives needed to be somehow protected from the world of commerce. They should just create, someone else would figure out how to sell it. A lot of people got very rich from this model, and often it wasn’t the artists or creators themselves.

Stories of bad deals, of artists not earing a penny or not owning their own works, are legion.

We have almost reached the end of the development of version 1.1 of Trail Wallet. The nerds down at Voyage Labs have been working away, ratcheting in all new features and sticking on brand new spangly bits to make travel expense tracking that little bit easier.

Launching a product was something that I’ve always said I wanted to try but have somehow never managed to get around to.

I think it was the fear. The idea of spending a lot of time creating something that is uniquely mine and then saying to the world “I believe this thing I made will enrich your life in some way. Will you give me X dollars for it?” is actually quite a scary proposition.

Here’s a sneak peak of the icon from our upcoming app, Trail Wallet.

The app is almost done. We’ve had some great feedback from out beta testers and have implemented a bunch of their suggestions. We’re now in the process of working on the design and making sure that everything is working as it should before we submit it to Apple.

Lion introduced a new feature, full screen mode, that allows apps to take up the entire desktop space, hiding the dock and status bar for a more iOS-like experience.
