Data Security

The data is saved on local-storage of your browser (locally). For speech recognition, it sends the speech to Google servers via Chrome over HTTPS (secure) and gets the text which is processed and saved in browser locally. It doesn’t transmit or store data anywhere.

Adding Icon in Mobile

Do you want to launch it like an app in your mobile? It’s irritating to open browser in mobile and type website link each time. Just click on icon in home screen is needed. You can setup it as home screen icon.

Open HISAAB in Chrome browser for Android, select the “Add to Home screen” option in settings menu. You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen.

Feedback

The goal what in my mind at the time of development is to track expenses quickly especially on travelling we don’t have enough time to write it down. Now after development, It runs smoothly on PC, desktop, laptop and Chromebook and works also on tablets and mobiles. But desktop Chrome browser is recommended for better quality and operations.
