HomeBudget is an integrated expense tracker designed to help you track your expenses, income, bills-due and account balances. It offers support for budgeting, and allows analysis of your expenses and income, including charts and graphs. Two key differentiating features of HomeBudget are:
1. Integrated set of features. The features within HomeBudget are well integrated such that a bill can become an expense (when you pay for it) and also adjust the account balance at the same time.
2. Family sync. HomeBudget includes Family Sync, an advanced feature that allows a group of devices/computers (Mac, iPhone, iPad, iTouch) within the household to exchange expense and income information, and work together within a single budget. Once setup, the devices/computers sync with each other automatically over the air. Family Sync works across all features including Bills and Accounts. Please refer to the Family Sync Quick Start guide at http://www.anishu.com for information on configuring Family Sync.

Minor bug fix
Ratings and Reviews
Important bugs are not fixed
The app is OK, but it has some major bugs for those of use who manage expenses and incomes in multiple currencies.
1. Whenever you import expenses and transactions in a certain currency, the app will not perform the right conversion to the main currency of the system. I have had to open the app’s SQLite database and run UPDATE queries myself to get this fixed without having to go on each expense one by one.
Appart from that, the other limitation is that the budget is always just for the current month, you cannot store historical information about your budget nor explore how you performed budget-wise in past moths
HomeBudget With Sync
This app is one of a few that can duplicate my financial spreadsheet without being overly complicated and costly.
My requirement is to know what bills are due and when each month, total expenses and total income month to month.
The app is very flexible when adding recurring, one time and periodic payments.
In a very short time I entered the content of my spreadsheet and could see my monthly expenses total month by month and my discretionary income.
The app has some graphical tools to see where your money is going and tools for budgeting purposes.
The interface needs a little rearranging but is not a show stopper.
Needs more options for printing.
Overall a very nice app and does what I want it to.
BEST THING OF MY LIFE
I am so happy with this app so far! I downloaded the free version the other night and then I just had to get the full version. I’ve been looking for a very hands on way to do my budget that isn’t excel and doesn’t neccisarily connect to my bank account. This app is so great and has been so helpful. I am excited to continue using it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
