July ’14 Feature Updates
New Debt Payoff Comparison Page
It’s been a while since I’ve added anything new, but here’s a little something that I just finished, the compare debt payoff methods page. It’s not real pretty at the moment but it gets the basic point across. In most cases, you’ll probably only see a month or two difference between the payoff methods but it all depends on the details of your debt. In my case, I happen to have an additional payment scheduled for July 2016 so there’s no difference in the payoff month for me. Of course, your mileage may vary but I think it’s pretty interesting.
This table proves out that the debt avalanche method is the best method mathematically. However, I always recommend to use the method that works best for you because the payoff date probably won’t be too much different between the different methods.
More Bugs Being Squashed
Thanks to all who have contacted me with bugs or issues that you’ve run across. I try my best to fix them quickly. Right now, I’m finishing up the issue with due dates being adjusted too far when payments are made. I have a fix in place, I just need to test it out a little more.
I’ve decided to change things up a bit and redesign the entire site. I’m seeing a lot more mobile users access the site and I want to make it a better experience. This will take quite a bit of time so I probably won’t be adding any new features in the meantime.
June was the best month ever for the website. I saw a huge spike in the amount of newly signed up users and traffic coming in from other sites. It’s great to have so many new users on the site. I even got my first bandwidth warning this month. Check out the support the site page on how you can help offset the hosting costs. Thanks!
