Allowance for YNAB is a companion app to the You Need a Budget service that allows you to select the categories you are most interested in and display them in places where you can, at a glance, see your available balances and make better spending decisions. Allowance for YNAB can be viewed from your lock screen via a Today Widget or on your Apple Watch as a complication. Not to mention your categories are featured prominently within the app so you can quickly get in and get out. Allowance for YNAB will also alert you when your balance has increased or when you're out of money. If you have people in your life who just want to know "How much money do I have right now?" Allowance for YNAB can help. Whether that be the allowance of your kids or your fun money, it's only a glance away.

Also, please note that Allowance for YNAB is in no way associated or owned by YNAB. We just like the service a lot.

What's New

Version 1.2

Some bug fixes and new features in this release!

- Added the ability to password protect the settings view and add budget view. This is so that you can prevent someone, potentially a teenager in your family, from being able to snoop around your budget and add categories you may not want them to see.
- Improved the pacing feature with an “available today” value.

Helpful addition


I like the simple quick view and progress bars. My favorite thing is the lock screen widget quick view of 3 categories. It's a really fast way to check your most difficult categories.

Thank you!!!!!



Great addition!


Makes YNAB even easier to check up on. The widget is very useful.
