Getting started with Slice for Android

Track all of your online purchases in one place using your Android device.

Shopping online has many benefits. You almost never have to worry about how many of an item a specific store has in stock, how bad traffic is at certain times, or having to deal with other shoppers who are angry for whatever reason. It also has its downsides. If you purchase a lot of items online, it can be easy to lose track of what you've purchased, when they're supposed to arrive, or how much they cost. Does this sound like a problem you've encountered before, or are currently encountering? Try out Slice for Android if it does. Read on to learn how to set it up.

Step 1: Download Slice - shopping organized from the Google Play Store.

Step 2: Run the app. This service requires an account, so you'll have to enter your Slice account information or create a new account if you've never used the service before.

Step 3: Once signed up/in, you'll be brought to the main screen of the app. At first, no information will be displayed. To get your purchase information, click on the blue bar at the bottom labeled Ready to Start.

Step 4: The service works with your Yahoo! or Gmail account. Select which service you'd like to use and enter your e-mail address and password. Note that if you use a secondary account to track all your online purchases then you should use that e-mail here.

Step 5: The app will then check all order receipts from your e-mail history. You can view your old purchases in the Purchase History menu and check existing orders under the Updates menu.

Take note that some personal record keeping is still required while using this app. If, for example, you canceled an order or received two receipts for your purchase, then chances are the app will record them as completed purchases and it will look like you've spent more money than you actually did.
