Why use the Debt Snowball strategy to get out of debt?
If you’re looking to become debt free, using the Debt Snowball repayment method will get you there, fast.
The strategy behind the Debt Snowball is simple.
You order your debts from smallest to largest, keeping up just the minimum monthly repayments on all but the smallest debt. For this debt, you throw as much money at is as you can until the debt is gone.
Next, start working on the second smallest debt. Use the original repayment (you no longer need to make as the debt is gone!) and add it to the repayment of the new smallest debt, thereby making an overpayment.
“When you start the Debt Snowball and in the first few days pay off a couple of little debts, trust me, it lights your fire.”
The idea is that you gain momentum as your debts disappear one by one, allowing you to add the previous minimum repayments to the debts you have left. Your repayment on the debt you're working on gets bigger and bigger, just as a snowball would.
Having been popularized by Dave Ramsey of Total Money Makeover, Harvard researchers actually found the Debt Snowball Repayment Method to be the most effective debt repayment strategy, giving users a sense of accomplishment and motivating them to keep going.

Debt Snowball App was created because we couldn’t find a simple, uncomplicated, jargon-free App to record our journey from being in debt to debt free.
We wanted a place to record where we’d come from (broke!) and where we’d got to (debt free!).

Ratings and Reviews
Just a payment tracker really...
Just a payment tracker. It doesn’t have any strategies or comparison options. You just enter your debits from smallest to largest and the track your payments to the smallest one until it’s gone. Not really what I was looking for.
