5 Useful Android Apps

There are many apps available for Android but these are some useful apps which I use regularly.

1. Money View: Financial Planning

Description: With the Free Money View app, you get a real-time visibility into your entire Personal Finances. It works by itself without any manual data entry - their daily expense manager app organizes our financial summary by analyzing SMS sent by our bank and billers to our phone. The app auto-tracks your expense, bills and account balances across all our financial accounts to help us stay on top of our money. The app is highly secure as it never reads any sensitive data - no full bank account numbers, no OTP, and no Netbanking login/password.

As it anaylzes the money transactions via the SMS in our phone it is highly useful app for tracking our expenses, so we can know our money is going in which direction so we can control it.

Rails: Grouping the records by group_by method

Many times we come across such situations where we need to group records, like when we want to display grouped messages, email, alerts .etc based on date or time. Here is the simple code which provides a significant use of group_by method.
Controller Part

classMessagesController < ApplicationController
@message = Message.all

#Retrives all messages and divides into two groups todays messages and other messages
@grouped_messages = @message.group_by{ |t| t.created_at.to_date == }

List of Common mistakes in Ruby

Always use spaces around operators, after commas, colons and semicolons, around { and before }. White space might be (mostly) irrelevant to the Ruby interpreter, but its proper use is the key to writing easily readable code. Also it makes the design more readable and code much cleaner.
product = 1 * 2 array = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] { |a| a + 2 }

There should be no spaces after (, [ or before ], ) these brackets.
['ankur', 'vyas'] sum(a, b)
Also don't use spaces in while providing the range.
Use5..9 over 5 .. 9Use'a'..'z' over 'a' .. 'z'
When using switch case statements use the following indentation.
casewhen input = '+'puts'The operation is addition'when'-'puts'The operation is subtraction'when'*'puts'The operation is multiplication'elseputs'The operation is division'end
Use following indentation if the parameters exceeds to more than one line.
