MoneyWell Express is the mobile companion app to MoneyWell for Mac which can be found in the Mac AppStore. 

With this app you can take your budget with you and everything syncs with your budget at home on your Mac.

- Check your bucket balances before making a spending decision
- Enter transactions on the move
- Stay in control of your money wherever you are.

MoneyWell Express and MoneyWell use iCloud for syncing.

We never have access to any of your financial data. All data remains on your device and in your private iCloud account.

What’s New

Version 2023.03

It's now possible to share a budget with someone who doesn't use the same iCloud account as you. You can share between any combination of iOS and Mac (using the desktop version of MoneyWell) devices.

If you created a budget on a previous version of MoneyWell, you'll need to disable sync and re-enable for sharing to work. If you don't need sharing, you don't need to do anything. Everything will continue as previously.

Thrilled to Have the MoneyWell App Back!

I’m so happy to have this app back! Thanks for all your hard work to relaunch it. Long term, I’d really like to see the ability to sort transactions in chronological order and to see a running balance. Other than those feature requests, I’m really happy with how it’s working on iOS. (Still crossing my fingers that you’ll be able to launch a fully-featured iPadOS version, equivalent to the macOS version, too.)Thanks again!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. We have lots of features on our roadmap which we're working our way through. Currently transaction on MoneyWell Express are always shown in reverse-chronological order (newest at the top) but we'll definitely look at adding sorting and running balance too. A fully-featured iPad app is definitely a high priority of ours as well.

works great except for syncing

I’ve been a paying MoneyWell user for many, many years and generally love the product. I also appreciate that it’s probably a very scrappy team working on it day to day. I would love to leave a 5-star review, but unfortunately the syncing experience is pretty poor, and I hope there’s a way to fix it. Even leaving both the mobile and desktop apps open to sync simultaneously rarely works well, and more often than not just times out in an error state. The data being reconciled during syncing can’t possibly be that large, so I’d love to understand if I’m doing something wrong or if there’s a fix on the horizon. Thank you!

Sorry to hear that sync isn't working smoothly for you. 

We have lots of people who are successfully using sync, so it sounds like there's some issue affecting your set up. 

Please send us an e-mail so we can troubleshoot the problems you're encountering.

So happy that sync is back

I have been using Moneywell on the Mac for over a decade. I had the iPad and iPhone versions when they were available, but they had to stop supporting it when drop box got rid of their API. Since then the company has changed hands and thankfully invested in bringing this back. So far the sync functionality is much better than previous versions. I love bucket budgeting.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of the app—and such a lovely one too.
