I deleted a balance in an Account but it still shows up in a Collection. Why?


This is the way collections work and is not a bug.  A collection brings together data from more than 1 account. In the case you are describing you must have a balance in another account on the date in question that is also included in the collection.

For example, imagine a collection called "House Equity" which has the accounts "House Value" and "Mortgage" as members. To start with let's also assume that balances exist for both accounts on 8 Dec 2019, 15 Dec 2019 and 14 Jan 2020. The collection will show a balance on all 3 dates : the sum of the balances of each account on these dates. Now assume you deleted the balance on 15 Dec for the Mortgage account only. The collection will still show a balance on 15 Dec : the sum of the balance on 15 Dec for House Value and the previous balance for Mortgage  (the one from 8 Dec in this instance). You would need to also delete the balance in House Value on the 15 Dec for that date to disappear in the Collection view.

Where is my data stored - can anyone else access it?

All of the app data is stored on your local device and, in the case of Clever Contacts or P&F Charts , in your own personal Apple iCloud account.  It is not shared with the developer or available to anyone else.  Only those that have access to your devices have access to your data. See below for additional information regarding data storage for particular apps. Clever Contacts All the contact related information (name, address, phone numbers, emails, contact photo etc) in Clever Contacts is actually saved in and read from your Contacts App on the device.  Membership in groups (e.g. Family), notes, photos associated with notes and other settings data is maintained by Clever Contacts in separate files. These will either be only on your local device or in your iCloud account depending on which storage option you have chosen in the Clever Contacts “Settings” screen. Clever Net Worth If multiple people have access to your iPhone or iPad you can protect your data from prying e

Can I share data between my devices in Clever Net Worth?

Not yet automatically - but iCloud sharing is coming in a new release soon. Because data is stored locally on your device, it cannot be accessed from another device.   For example, if you have both an iPhone and an iPad connected to the same Apple ID, Clever Net Worth may get installed automatically on both devices when you first purchase it from one of them.  However the two versions will act independently and not share data. You could copy a data set from one device to another by using the Export and Import function (see here) but this is a manual and non-straight forward process. Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay

Can I automatically download my latest balance in Clever Net Worth from my bank account?

Clever Net Worth does not provide automatic linkages to your bank accounts.  This app is based on you entering (manually) a single balance whenever it suits you rather than capturing all your individual transactions (which would be a pain to do manually).  We choose to maintain an increased level of security by not needing the app to have access to your accounts. However, you can cut and paste the latest balance if you so desire.  On an iPad you can even have two windows open side by side (see the image below for an example) with say Clever Net Worth on the left and your bank’s app on the right and then cut and paste between them.
