Visually track your spending against your monthly budget on one simple chart. View your total amount spent and unified transaction history across multiple cards.

Budget Burndown is a super simple personal finance app that borrows the idea of a "burndown chart" from Agile software development. You set a monthly budget, which is plotted as an expected spending rate. Your actual spending plots against it as the month goes on. If you keep the lines matched up, you stay on budget. It's a uniquely logical and standardized way to visually track your spending across multiple cards without sign up, ads, annoying emails, non-native design, or any of the bloat that makes other budgeting apps so frustrating to use.

At-a-glance visibility into how much you're spending against your monthly budget.

Automatically track your total amount spent and transactions across multiple cards in a single list. Adding and importing transactions is available when linking cards is not supported in the region.

Simply link whichever cards you want to track.

Your information is completely safe. You'll use Plaid to link your cards. Your credentials are end-to-end encrypted and completely inaccessible to the app.

Multiple widgets for at-a-glance insights into your spending without even opening the app.

Save important transactions. This can be helpful when you want to remember to split a bill or expense a purchase later.

Create custom push notification triggers tailor-made for your needs. Set alerts for when a transaction is above a certain amount or contains specified text.

Fully optimized for dark user interfaces.

Every user is allowed to link one card for free, which is enough for many people. Pro users can link multiple. This goes toward maintaining encrypted and private connections with the banks.

On the last day of each period, we'll renew your subscription for your Apple ID unless you cancel at least 24 hours before the period ends. You can cancel by going to your account settings on the App Store.

No bloat budget app

-Simple clean and iOS native looking design.
-No feature bloat. Most other apps on iOS are too confusing to use with too many options and features.
-Burndown visualization is effective for being aware of your spending and minimizing it.
-Privacy policy that respects your privacy.

-5 account limit. I have more than 5 accounts so this stings.
-No way to direct connect to your bank/card via OFX
-No way to manually update an account with a CSV/OFX file
-No way to visualize spending over a custom time interval (like a whole year for instance)
-No way to sort the transactions for a month by transaction amount. You can only do it by date.

-I wish there was a view for investing/savings too in addition to the budget view. Basically set a savings/investing goal every month and see how close you are to hitting it.

If you have less than 6 accounts to track this app is the best and simplest budget program on iOS I’ve seen.

So simple, it’s ACTUALLY useful

After trying just about every other overbuilt and needlessly complex finance app out there (aimed squarely at you Nerdwallet, Mint, Personal Cap), I tried Burndown from a friend’s recommendation and FINALLY a finance app that actually does what I need it to: simply monitor and categorize spending on ‘that one credit card you use’ for everything.

EASY TO TELL IF YOU CAN: It’s unique graph based interface is so visually intuitive and allows you to easily tell if buying that round of 8 margaritas is a good idea, even if you’re seeing double from the last round. Over your line? Get the boss to buy it. Under the line?Still get the boss to buy it, but smile feeling good you’re saving money.

MITIGATE ‘VENMO INFLATION’: Paying for a 6 person dinner where friends suddenly get T-Rex arms, can’t reach their wallets and will ‘Venmo you later’? A misrepresented accounting error of death to your card that will blow other app’s monthly budget reporting hopelessly into oblivion with no chance of recovery or correction. With Burndown, just tap charge > edit charge > back on track!

If you’ve been frustrated with the other all-in-one solutions out there and want an app that will actually make a positive difference in your spending habits, try Burndown. So simple it’s actually useful!

We've all been there 😂 Thank you for the review!

Trolls oh ,

Almost there...

It’s a great and simple app and makes it easy to see that snapshot view and make you think before making that next purchase. Two things I found would be helpful. Adding multiple cards from the same bank would be nice instead of having to login and add it one by one, not sure if it’s because of Plaid. The other one it would be nice to see the Burndown graph by transaction type like dining, entertainment, etc.

Thanks for the feedback! I know you’ve already linked your cards, but your first idea will actually be in the next update 🙂

Edit: Updated! Now you only have to sign in once to link multiple cards from the same bank. Thanks again for the suggestion! Hope we’ve earned that last star 😉
