Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded and updated to the premium to get the extra features. I think that was worth the small cost. It is a simple-to- use program, and I like being able to add categories on the fly. Since I am retired, and have a small income, I like that I can put in a fixed budget amount, and then add misc. income to calculate come a total spending allowance per month. Then, there is an auto calculate that shows the under/over spending and the ability to carry over a positive or negative variance. I had created a spreadsheet in Numbers, but that was a bit clumsy, so this is a refreshing change. I enter the expenses on both the ipad and iphone, and the sync through Dropbox has been working well with live updates. This program was designed very intuitively and is exactly what I had been looking for. I think there are other apps which might have more features, but the ones I looked at seemed more complicated. This is simple and provides just the amount of information that I need to monitor my budget. It would be nice to be able to take a snapshot of receipts, however. There is a both a pdf and csv export function, so I can export the report into a spreadsheet (Excel or CSV) or as a pdf into an app like Notability for viewing. So far, in the first week, I give it a high rating for simplicity and comprehensiveness.
New 1st Experience
We are using the free services so far and may upgrade later if it seems like it would help. This app is an extreme help for my elderly parents and I so far. We need to meet a minimum amount of expenditures monthly in order for my 90 yr old dad to get assistance from the Veterans Administration. We must make sure that they achieve the minimum amount each month in order to get $355 of monthly aide. To keep him at home while he is bed bound it means they need help coming in a few times every week. This spending app allows me to work with my mom long distance when I’m not visiting and she is already doing fine maneuvering the data entry on her own. At 82 yrs old she is easily able to enter the expenses and use your app, the categories we’ve entered make sense for the situation, and INSTEAD of income we entered $1040, the VA expenses minimum we must reach (for a $2400 household net). Mom can tell if she needs to purchase over-counter meds before this month ends or if she should wait until the new month starts. She can also tell ahead of time if the scheduled caregivers need to be scheduled on a different day, or if she can truly afford it that month. We would be lost without this app and it’s ease of use. Thank you!
Gain Control of How You Use Your Money
First, it’s important to note that this app is almost entirely accessible to VoiceOver users. You won’t be able to take full advantage of the graphs and reports, but the data is available in other ways that are equally beneficial. This is easy to use, and it doesn’t intrude into your bank accounts. Granted, you have to enter your transactions manually, but there are some real advantages to that. Categories and transactions are easy to input and easy to understand. Those who crave color in their categories can have it. There are several useful ways to sort your data, and yes, you can export it if you need to.
Like any other app of its type, this app is only as good as the data you enter. Yes, it takes some time to enter data, but the revelations you get about how you’re spending your money are fascinating indeed. This app is your portal to financial peace of mind that will be harder to achieve without it.
Finally, note that the developer is extremely responsive to questions and provides accurate helpful answers. Your first assignment: Buy the upgrade, then track it in the app as an expense. You’ll be glad you bought the upgrade.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
