"... I'm convinced that if you need an easy-to-use app that will scare you in to sticking to your budget you can count on Left to Spend." - Lifehacker.com

'Left to spend' takes an approach to budget management that is completely different from all other budgeting apps. Instead of overloading you with features and options 'Left to spend' cuts to the core of the task and gives you an immediate and intuitive overview of your current financial situation.
To use 'Left to spend', all you need to do is set up a daily allowance that you KNOW won't break your budget. To calculate this amount, simply subtract all your monthly expenses (bills) from your monthly income and divide the result by the number of days in that month. Every day this amount is added to your total allowance. Whenever you spend money you simply open 'Left to spend' and enter the amount, subtracting it from your total allowance. If your total allowance is running low, you need to slow down your spending and wait for your allowances to accumulate. As long as you never get below 0, you'll never have to worry about money again!
Managing a budget should be simple, satisfying and FAST. 'Left to spend' turns its back on bloated budget apps and all their unnecessary features. Do you really want to manage the more advanced aspects of your budget (like recurring bill payments or loan payment plans) on a 4" screen? What good is tracking the location and type of your expenses, if you don't have time to enter them half the times you make a purchase?
'Left to spend' is so fast and easy to use, that you will want to use it every time!
'Left to spend' WON'T:
- Ask you to input your recurrent monthly expenses
- Ask you to categorise your spendings
- Show the location of your spendings on a map
- Present you with with a chart of your expenses
Instead 'Left to spend' WILL:
- Tell you, at any given time, how much money you have left to spend!
It is a personal finance app stripped of all features. Let this liberate you!
Ratings and Reviews
Great budgeting app.
This is a great app for the budgeting inept. It works great and is simple to use which is exactly what I like the most about it. No categorising expenses. Just say you have spent x and the app does the rest.
I wish it would make use of the new notification extension so you can see how much you have left to spend on your lock screen. Beyond that if you can enter amounts on the lock screen as well would be great.
So simple it works
Not only straightforward but keeps you focused on the figure that counts. So easy to use that you actually will.
It does keep some spending data: a graph option (a la Weightbot), or similar, to help you track progress over time would be a useful addition.
On my home screen for over a year, and the iOS 7 update is lovely. Great app!
