OpenBudget helps you split your money into categories, track your spending, and save your money with ease.

# Here's how it works

- Spend on what you need
OpenBudget splits your money into categories so you know you’ll have enough for what you need.
When you spend money, you’ll take it out of a category. When the category is out of money, you stop spending from the category.

- Track Your Spending
Don’t let your money be a mystery. Find what you’re spending the most on and track it easily using OpenBudget. 
Recording transactions is fast and simple, without giving up any functionality.

## More Features

# Subscriptions

Track subscriptions and other repeating transactions with ease. Whether it’s your monthly Netflix or a once-a-year income, OpenBudget can handle it all. It’s intuitive and simple to get started for your budget, and then it just works. Let OpenBudget do all the work for you.

# Scheduled Transactions

Schedule any transaction for the future. Know when you’re getting paid? Add it to your budget in the future, already split into your categories, and OpenBudget will take care of it for you. It’ll automatically be allocated to your categories when the date comes!

# Envelope Style Budgeting

A proven system of budgeting, but with OpenBudget it’s virtual and fast. Instead of your money being a mystery until you spend it all, set how much you’ll spend on categories like Food and Gas. Then plan ahead how much you’ll have for each category.

# Powerful Search

Can’t remember when you bought coffee last? OpenBudget’s transaction search can help you out! Search all of your past transactions instantly and get a list of your transactions right on your device.

What’s New

Version 1.1.2

In this release:

- App was unresponsive while syncing, all that is now done in the background.
- Moving the cursor in a currency field and then editing would move the cursor incorrectly after each edit.
- App would suddenly come to a screeching hault, those problems are now fixed.
- Fixed a bug that would re-download all of a user's data each time the app was opened.
- Search bars, and some other text inputs, didn't appear the correct color in dark mode
- When splitting a transaction, sometimes using the "Split Evenly" would give you a few cents extra.
- Using the "Split Evenly" button when splitting transactions doesn't automatically save the transaction.

We've also slightly redesigned the transaction input. Splitting transactions is much smoother. Plus some of the visual bugs in Dark Mode have been dissapeared!

Great for its purpose but could be improved

This is a budgeting app that basically simplifies your spreadsheet alternative. It’s very basic. I do like that you can add each budget category to your home screen as a widget. I really don’t like that it doesn’t reset your categories. Like once you submit a deposit you have to take them out when your month/week is up. It’s a problem that I feel like can be easily fixed but it just hasn’t and it’s annoying. All in all it’s a pretty good free app. There is a premium but you don’t have to get it it’s just an option. I would still recommend this app. I would just like some things to change.

The Best Budgeting App Out There

When the service I used for budgeting announced that they were shutting down, I started looking for a replacement. I tried every budgeting app out there, and none of them worked with the way I budget. I was ready to give up, and then I found OpenBudget.

Simply put, it’s the best budgeting app available. Believe me, I’ve tried them all. It’s the only app that offers the power, flexibility, and sharing options that I need to budget properly. The design is intuitive enough for anyone to pick it up and start taking control of their finances.

Now that I have everything set up the way I like in the app, keeping up with my money is easy and enjoyable. I thought budgeting would turn into a chore, but OpenBudget has made it anything but that.

The developer is also very responsive and kind. When I was first trying the app and deciding whether or not it was for me, I reached out with some feedback that he immediately incorporated into the app, making it even better for how I budget.

I’m proud to be an annual subscriber to OpenBudget, and I look forward to using it as my family’s primary financial tool going forward.

So far so good.

The previous reviewer was annoyed that you couldn't clear purchases for the month, but that is exactly what I was looking for. I get really annoyed at apps that start you over from the beginning when the month ends. I don't budget for 30 exact days, I budget by payperiod.

This simple app is exactly what I was looking for. Categories to pull from so I know where my money is going while also showing me what I have leftover to save. It's simple, it's clear, and it's helping me immensely.

I only took off one star because the withdrawl button my mac isn't as seamless as the iphone app. I have to click another category, and then click withdrawl again.

In the future, I'd love to have a reconcile button for transactions. But I am happy to have it as it is now, and it doesn't change the benefit for me.

Thank you!
