HomeBudget is an integrated expense tracker designed to help you track your expenses, income, bills-due and account balances. It offers support for budgeting, and allows analysis of your expenses and income, including charts and graphs. Two key differentiating features of HomeBudget are:

1. Integrated set of features. The features within HomeBudget are well integrated such that a bill can become an expense (when you pay for it) and also adjust the account balance at the same time.

2. Family sync. HomeBudget includes Family Sync, an advanced feature that allows a group of devices within the household to exchange expense and income information, and work together within a single budget. Once setup, the devices sync with each other automatically over the air. Family Sync works across all features including Bills and Accounts. Please refer to the Family Sync Quick Start guide at for information on configuring Family Sync.

Goodbye after 2 years


This has been my go-to expense app for over 2 years, but when I recently restored my phone to discover HomeBudget was a blank slate, I was reminded of two things: (a) HomeBudget doesn’t leverage iCloud for backups, and (b) its Dropbox backup settings had mysteriously reverted from Daily to Never, meaning the past 6 months of data are now gone. Using Dropbox to backup app data is a fine if ersatz way to go, but not defaulting those settings to daily is completely incomprehensible to me. Why would anyone *not* want daily backups of a data payload that is so miniscule? It begs the question why the developers didn’t just implement iCloud backup in the first place. Set it and forget it.

So, I’ve had enough. Goodbye Home Budget.

And hello to Money Pro. An app which has stayed with the times, leverages all the iOS hooks properly, and even has some nice predictive AI to streamline the expense entering process. Money well spent, and I’m glad I made the switch.

Recurring Items Needs Improvement


Home Budget works great for my wife and I except for 2 major sources of frustration:
1. Recurring expenses, income and transfers are device dependent, and only update/sync when you open the app on the device that entered them. I never know if I’m looking at current data, because my wife and I have entered recurring items on 4 dif devices (2 iPads and 2 iPhones) unless I remind my wife to open the app on both her devices first. Also, when upgrading to a new phone or iPad, any recurring entries entered on that device get lost.
2. If I find an error in an expense that I spread over 6 or 12 months, I have to individually delete each monthly entry and then re-enter the expense. There’s no way to simply correct the amount.



Using this app for very long time, probably one of the first customers...
The only issues that I'm facing is data size. For example, if you saving receipts with your expenses then your data file becomes HUGE and there is now easy way to remove old receipts. Also, Backup/Restore to Dropbox doesn't work. It creates empty remote folder and never stores the data.
It would be nice to backup your data to google drive too. Dropbox gives too little space if you on free version.
Would be nice to be able to delete receipts for specific time frame. For example, I do not need receipts if they are older then 3 years. Or give us a chance to store those receipts in the cloud so data file would smaller.
