    Xero Personal is likely to be a great application, given it’s breeding. However, if it is to be successful in it’s own right, I think it needs to address forecasting – i.e. “based on my spending patterns what am I going to have in the bank at the end of next month”. There are any number of apps that will categorise historical spending.

    The “enterprise” version of Xero contains rule options for splitting power bills etc. Do you really want too many features crossed over which would delete the value of the main product? I would think not.
