Really useful

I really like this app. I’ve used several money apps over 10 years. I’be used Spending for 9 months. I really like how I can create subset categories. So I can see the balances across unique categories such as my business, subsets within my business, personal spending, rental property, etc. I can add repeating transactions so I only need to manually add those that vary such as groceries, chemist, petrol, etc. It doesn’t sync with bank accounts which previous apps had. When those apps developed glichs that made them unusable I decided to change to an app that didn’t sync with banks as a better safety aspect and also to keep me more aware of my money, by having to manually enter figures. Using the repeated transaction function, it leaves me adding about 14 manual amounts per week. I can see at a glance where I’m at with each category . I would like to see better layout of the downloadable spreadsheet. I’d like to be able to seperate items within categories. That’s my only problem. I need to copy and paste to get my spreadsheet in order.

A must have app for everyone.

Been using this app for a while now and it's easy to use and able to easily SYNC between multiple devices. My partner can put in their expenses and it instantly SYNCs to mine and vice versa. Helps keep track of expenses and adding personal notes against each expense makes reconciling with credit card statement much easier. Tracking expenses at the end of a period is fantastic with this app. And the app support is fantastic too. Highly recommend it for anyone who wants to see where their expenses are and money goes and to help curb unnecessary expenses.

Spending tracker works well

I have tried a few spending apps in recent years and this one has been the best. You can customise your income and spending categories quite flexibly and record daily expenditures with just a few simple steps. These can be edited easily to make corrections to date, category or amount. Notes can be added to each entry to remind you of the particulars of every expenditure or income event.
My only gripe arose when I deleted a recurrent income amount and replaced it with a lower amount. The app retrospectively altered all the previous income entries and seems to have deleted them. In hindsight I should have created a new income stream entry rather than change the existing one.
Reporting on monthly income and expenditure is clear and logical and can be tailored to your preference, either date order or category.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. When changing the amount on a recurring income/expense, the app prompts you to check whether this change is for all entries (past and future), for future entries or for this one entry only. Perhaps it is possible that at this point you selected the wrong option...? It might be worth setting up a test entry just to double check how this works to avoid this happening again as we can see this must have been annoying. We are pleased that overall you are finding that this app meets your needs, and please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at support@mhriley.com if you would like any more info about the app. Best wishes!
