Basic app, but 5* app and essential to my daily life

Been using this for over 7 year. Takes a bit of discipline, but everyone has a smartphone on them 24/7 so it’s not hard to just go into the app and add a spend or any incoming money. If you get into this habit it makes life so easy to keep on top of your finances. You will never be wrong about how much money you actually have due to pending amounts due to come out etc and it’s easy to keep on top of your balance as long as you make it a habit to enter everything as and when you spend.
I would recommend the pro version it only cost a couple of quid one off payment and the features are well worth it.
I have used this to help save money, move and work abroad (+ managing finances there), and now in my daily life as a renter to keep on top of bills, savings, food budget, spending amounts, so my money within one bank account is almost set up as little “pockets” of money as separate accounts within the app. I will continue to use this in my daily life for years to come and will likely teach my son how to use this app and track his finances (if this app is still around! Hopefully it is haha)

I use it regularly & Recommend IT

The Pro Version of the Spending Tracker comes highly recommended by me. I believe paid about an extra £2.99 (very small price to pay: ?Price of a Cappuccino) to enable me to have the "recurring/repeating transactions" function, which I highly value. The app is very well laid out, easy to follow with extra help available when you press on the "i" icon (i.e. Information). It's very easy to set up your regular transactions. I have another app, which I use for my day-to-day inputting of transactions, though this app can easily do that. However for me the beauty of this app is that it solves something that's a bit of a headache for me: working out what direct debits and standing orders go out from my account on a weekly basis, as well as some of the income, which though small I get on a regular basis. This app REALLY EXCELS IN THIS AREA, making it easy to set them all up, all colour-coded & the expense and income categories amended were necessary PLUS the ability to view them on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis - This saves me having to set up a sophisticated EXCEL Spreadsheet or even a Pie-Chart, as this app does it all. Moreover, the developer answers my queries within a few days. Sweet! Thanks for reading.

Simple but very effective

Really pleased with this little app. Very flexible, customisable and intuitive. I like being able to make a visual record of spending patterns using friendly and familiar icons to suit my needs and had a bit of fun choosing icons and setting them up. We’re using this app to track credit card spending on a number of different cards which let’s face it in this click and go world is easy to lose track of. The different ‘Account’ options is perfect for separating out the different cards in the family and being able to set different time periods for each card is very handy. Graphics are really clear - already I can see this will help curb spending on non essentials because they’re right there as soon as I open the app - reckon this will help us save money too!
The help notes were clear, I was able to work out everything I needed by trial and error or using the notes. Was up and running in about 1/2 hour.
Great for all ages, and I can see why businesses have given it a thumbs up too.
Going to recommend this to my family and especially my son for his uni accounts.
