Budget Pinoy

Sweldong Pinoy is now five! We have been developing a new app called Budget Pinoy. I'm reposting below the announcement blog post which was originally published in the Sweldong Pinoy Blog.


Need help in budgetting your salary? Want to find out what your asking rate is depending on your projected expenses and budget? We have developed an app that can help you!

Budget Pinoy is a tool for Filipinos in computing gross and net pay based on user's budget.


Users can input their target savings and projected expenses in the Budget Tab. They can also use the expenses tab to check expenses.

The recommendation tab will show the asking rate that the user needs to be able to earn enough for the target budget. It will also show the net pay and deductions, computed using Sweldong Pinoy, based on the asking rate.

We're also working with different financial institutions to give you relevant tips to help you in your finances, based on your budget. This will be coming soon in a future update.

Try Budget Pinoy at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.sweldongpinoy.budget and let us know how we can improve the app to help you more in your budgetting needs.

March Android Talks

I was able to do two Android talks this month despite the busy schedule.

On March 2, I went to Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila to talk about Android Nougat to CS and IT fourth year students in their Mobile AcCSess Seminar.



Here is the slides I used in my talk:


I also went to STI Academic Center Novaliches on March 15 to talk about Android Apps Development in their STIers Congress on Information Technology.

7-Eleven Run 2017

For the third straight year, I joined 7-Eleven's run for the year, the 7-Eleven Run 2017.

I ran again in the 16k category. Runtastic says I ran 16.04 km in 2:14:44. The official results are 02:15:29 (Gun Time) and 02:14:09 (Chip Time).

While this year's run was better than last year, my comments from 2016 are still the same comments I have for this run.
