  1. Can you include a time zone feature? Traveling in different time zones changes all the dates when working owing IOS. Of course I don’t know if this is the IOS problem.

    1. You raise an interesting point. Transaction times are always shown in the local time of the phone, which means that if you enter the transaction in one time zone and then move to another time zone the time shown will look different. You might enter a transaction at 8PM in New York, then travel to Chicago and that same transaction will show at 7PM, which is 8PM in New York. You can manually change the time zone on your phones by going to Settings -> General -> Date and Time to see the times with the time zone you want. I will look at adding a time zone to the transaction in a future release. If I did that, transactions would still be sorted the way they are today, but the time displayed would show me local time when the transaction was entered.
