The #1 Debt Payoff Planner app is the simplest way to stop feeling overwhelmed and start having a specific, step-by-step plan for paying off your loans.
Today is the day to make a plan with a loan calculator and beginning paying down debt. Required inputs for calculating your debt free date are the current balance of the loan, the annual percentage rate (APR), and the minimum payment amount. That's the only requirement to getting a customized debt repayment schedule.
Easy steps to becoming debt free:
- Enter your loans and debts
- Enter your additional monthly payment budget to pay down faster
- Choose a debt payoff strategy
* Dave Ramsey's Debt Snowball (lowest balance first)
* Debt Avalanche (highest rate first)
* Debt Snowflake (one-time extra payment toward loans)
* Custom debt free payoff plan
Debt Payoff Planner and Loan Calculator determines the optimum payment plan and how long it will take until you will be debt free. You tell the app how much you want to budget toward paying off your debt and we'll tell you how. We recommend the Debt Snowball strategy because we believe that paying off individual accounts faster will help you stay focused on your financial goal of debt elimination. A payoff plan is only useful if you stick with it!
Your ability and willingness to pay more than the minimum payments is how you will become debt free in less time than you imagined. Budgeting your income will help you to get a regular monthly amount to pay down the debt faster. The payoff chart will show two payoff scenarios: only paying the minimum amounts, and the repayment schedule when you pay more the the minimum ever month.
Additionally, there is an option to create an account for saving debt payoff and payment information. This account can be accessed across multiple devices, from multiple app stores. Creating an account is entirely optional, but it does enable you to have a secure backup and your information is immediately available if you start using a new device. Getting out of debt is hard, so we try to allow you to take baby steps toward this goal.
We believe that becoming debt free requires an easy starting point and making sure every dollar is leveraged perfectly. The loan calculator has minimal inputs in order to make your money management easy to follow.
The Debt Payoff Planner and Calculater is also used for tracking payments and updating the time-frame for becoming debt-free. Inputting payment information is as simple as typing in the amount and the date the payment was made. The goal of payment tracking is to see your progress over time and affirm that you are staying focused on your financial goals.
In addition to being a debt tracker and loan calculator, we are also trying to help point out some possible next steps with articles focused on how to pay off student loans, auto loans, and credit cards faster. Also, there is some tips on credit card balance transfers as well as strategies for debt consolidation.
We support eight loan categories:
* Credit Cards like Capital One, Citicard, Chase, etc.
* Student Loans like Navient, Sallie Mae, Great Lakes, etc.
* Auto/Car Loans
* Medical Loans
* Mortgages like Rocket Mortgage, SoFi, etc.
* Personal Loans to friends and family or other individuals
* Taxes like IRS or local municipalities
* Other category could be anything from a paycheck loan to a hard money loan
In addition to the Debt Snowball calculator and the Debt Avalanche method, many users like to do a custom sorting of their debts. This customization is available for users that want to be their own debt manager.
We allow the ability to provide a Debt Snowball payoff as well. A Debt Snowball is a one-time payment from things like a bonus at work, a tax refund, an extra payday, etc. This additional capability allows you to have tighter control over every dollar you are budgeting.

Options to Play With
I am not a newbie to the debt snowball, I have a copy on my excel spreadsheet. While that version is useful it is extremely hard to maintain and adjust my priorities. Once you input it it has to stay in that column. That is were the Debt Payoff Planner excels. I can customize what I want as a priority to pay off and see what my outcome will be, all with a slide of my finger. Extra bonus I really like is being able to make educated decisions on what to pay off and how much interest I will end up paying. A huge difference between the excel version of snowball debt to this is the fact that we have several loans that are zero percent interest for X amount of month. Debt Payoff Planner takes that in to consideration. This is a much more convenient app that allows me to adjust as needed and easily track my progress. One small little thing that I wish was changed, my APR is already entered, I would like to just put in how much I paid and call it a day. If I decided to pay a couple dollars more than my minimum I would like to just hit enter and move on. I get it if you have a loan that you can pay more to interest but in my case most of our outstanding debt doesn’t offer that choice. Overall I am extremely over the moon with the layout and ease of use.
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for the kind review! We're so glad that this free loan calculator has helped make your life easier. You should be able to get what you want with the extra payment by clicking 'Use Payoff Plan Estimate' to automatically compute the interest, then select 'Enter Details Directly' and change the Total Paid to how much you paid and then click the Calculate button. It's a couple more clicks, but you wouldn't need to calculate the loan manually if you do it this. Feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions on how to accomplish this.
It’s given me hope!!!
This app has been just what I needed! I love the options to either enter the payment details manually or use the Payoff Plan Estimate for your monthly entries. It will not automatically credit your payments monthly which is great because it forces you to look at your payment amount each month so that you can see your accomplishments. Also if you have budgeted extra money to pay each month the app will allow you to add it. If you get a surprise gift of money you can take that amount to pay down your debt as a Snowflake option. I’ve tried another app for debt payoff but this app is the best by far. I’m amazed at the choices I have and not having to pay for the pro version. I did create an account but the best part is that you don’t have to provide account numbers, just name the account whatever you like add details and voila your on your way to being debt free! I’m definitely addicted to this app. The COVID-19 pandemic has made me put a lot of things into perspective for the better and forced me to save when I normally wouldn’t. I’m looking forward to having this debt paid off for good in less than three years. 🙏🏾🙌🏾

Finally a light at the end of the tunnel
As many previous reviews state, this app is one of the best out there if you are serious about paying off your debts. I fell into the credit card trap little by little, until one day I realized I was becoming overwhelmed by outrageous interest rates. I tried to figure out how to pay these debts on my own, but every time I had a few extra dollars from paying off a debt, it never seemed to go towards paying off the next. This app breaks down a realistic timeline for me, with easy to understand visuals and charts, and keeps me motivated to stay on track! It's wonderful knowing how much I need to apply to each monthly payment without the temptation of using the money "elsewhere". It is truly the light at the end of the tunnel for me! Although some reviewers state they would like an option to include recurring payments so they don't have to manually enter the amounts each month, the
I find that to be part of the motivation in actually entering that amount and seeing the balance go down. Love this app!
