"Spend Stack is a truly high-quality, well designed new app." - Ryan Christoffel, MacStories
"I love everything about Spend Stack. Go get it." - David Bressler, The Elephant's Paycheck

Spend Stack is a list app that can keep a to-the-penny running total. Using iCloud, it syncs to all of your devices, plus you can share and collaborate on them with anyone!

You can think of it is a cross between a shopping list and a budgeting app. Track any kind of list that has monetary values, such as:

- A grocery list
- Expense tracking
- Birthday or Christmas lists
- "Envelope" budgets
- Track home renovations
- Expense reports
- Vacation budgets or planning
- Make a chore list and share it with kids, and note how much each task "earns"
- or any other general purpose list.

- Supports every currency
- Keep track of your list's cost by having sales tax applied *, pricing produce by weight or adding discounts.
- Add images, notes and more to your items for more detailed information.
- Share your lists with anyone to collaborate on them together. Perfect for shopping lists with your other half.
- All of your lists are synced to each of your iOS devices.
- Flexible lists, you can create a list with sales tax automatically applied, use checkboxes or do neither of those to keep it simple.
- Leverages all of iOS' platform technologies such as dark mode, drag and drop, keyboard support, dynamic type support, context actions and more.

* Sales tax is available in the United States only.

Excellent App

I have been using this app now for about a week and finding that it’s a joy and useful utility. I love how it asks you if it can use your location in order for it to find the sales tax for your list. This is very helpful when you don’t know it or want to confirm what you believe it to be. I actually knew it and the app was able to reinforce the sales tax amount in my region. It even gave me the location in which I was in when figuring the sales tax automatically. Nice! I had some ideas about future features for the app and contacted the developer. I got a prompt response the following day. This is also a big thumbs up since users want to feel confident that their outreach is not falling in the round file pile. Another feature that I like is the sharing options and the recipient’s ability to add or change things if the option to have the user ( s ) perform this is enabled. This can also be disabled at anytime. Sweet! Adding an image to your list is a beautiful thing as well. All in all I think this app has got a wonderful start and looking forward to its development. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone wishing to add details regarding cost and other items which this app is packed with.

New User-Love It

I’m still pretty new to this app and I’m still discovering features—using weights for produce and discounts are nice features I’ve recently tried—but so far this app is really powerful and easy to use. I might look like a dork using it in the store, but the truth is I struggle with mental math (esp. when sales tax, discounts, or quantity by weight are involved) so I’ve always just guessed at my running total while shopping—not ideal for keeping spending under control. My wife is a bit of a Luddite and is also very good at mental math, so we haven’t collaborated on a list yet (maybe someday) but for my own use, this is an excellent app.

Thanks so much for the review! We’ve got a lot more lined up for Spend Stack, so I hope you and your wife find it useful for many more years to come!

Thank you for respecting our Privacy. I do not routinely purchase or download new Apps, but saw your privacy which matches that of Apple, and I was sold. Thank you for caring about us. This was needed because my CU changed their way of sending immediate notifications of credit card use. Now it is a few days later, which does not help if my card is lost, cloned or ‘hijacked’. I prefer to know exactly when the card is use.

Do far so good.
