"... I'm convinced that if you need an easy-to-use app that will scare you in to sticking to your budget you can count on Left to Spend." - Lifehacker.com

'Left to spend' takes an approach to budget management that is completely different from all other budgeting apps. Instead of overloading you with features and options 'Left to spend' cuts to the core of the task and gives you an immediate and intuitive overview of your current financial situation.
To use 'Left to spend', all you need to do is set up a daily allowance that you KNOW won't break your budget. To calculate this amount, simply subtract all your monthly expenses (bills) from your monthly income and divide the result by the number of days in that month. Every day this amount is added to your total allowance. Whenever you spend money you simply open 'Left to spend' and enter the amount, subtracting it from your total allowance. If your total allowance is running low, you need to slow down your spending and wait for your allowances to accumulate. As long as you never get below 0, you'll never have to worry about money again!
Managing a budget should be simple, satisfying and FAST. 'Left to spend' turns its back on bloated budget apps and all their unnecessary features. Do you really want to manage the more advanced aspects of your budget (like recurring bill payments or loan payment plans) on a 4" screen? What good is tracking the location and type of your expenses, if you don't have time to enter them half the times you make a purchase?
'Left to spend' is so fast and easy to use, that you will want to use it every time!
'Left to spend' WON'T:
- Ask you to input your recurrent monthly expenses
- Ask you to categorise your spendings
- Show the location of your spendings on a map
- Present you with with a chart of your expenses
Instead 'Left to spend' WILL:
- Tell you, at any given time, how much money you have left to spend!
It is a personal finance app stripped of all features. Let this liberate you!

Simple and effective
I agree with all of the positive reviews, but I would like to second the request for a bit of a history function. Even to just be able to see the last 5-10 expenses so I don't forget or double enter something! Example: I buy a sandwich for lunch. Later, stopping at a store on the way home for work, I ponder whether I added it or not, but I can't tell whether I'd be including this missing data, or charging myself twice as much against the balance! Just a quick list of the last few entries would prevent this, and be pretty unobtrusive.
Perfect for Trip Budget
I just took a vacation with my young adult daughter. It was my treat, but I had a limited budget. I thought this app might help us both make more thoughtful choices about spending. Boy, did it work!
From the first fast food restaurant, where my daughter chose a cheaper meal than usual to the mall, where she made her own decision that there was only enough in budget for one souvenir, this app was great for her awareness.
For me, it took all the financial stress away on the trip. I always knew where we stood, so I wasn’t stressed about wondering where the money went or having to say no.
I love how easy it is to use the app, so it was easy to keep up with. At one point, I did forget an entry, but the feature allowing you to back and look at the dollar amounts entered allowed us to figure out what hadn’t been entered pretty quickly.
This is the prefect app for quickly keeping track of spending. It's super simple and easy to use. There is no extra stuff just enter how much you spent. If other budget apps don't stick, or are too complicated, give this a try. I love it because it's all I need.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
