Ratings and Reviews
Simple but effective and quick
The app is really convenient for tracking income and expenses for any category you can dream up. One thing I really like, besides the fun animation of the numbers as money is spent or added, is the fact that after the user inputs a transaction in one of the categories, the app kicks you back out to the main view of all of your categories. Everything seems well thought out. Many expense/income apps first have terrible design and second don't understand the user is inputting transactions in on the go. This app succeeds in both categories. It is quick! No bloatware here. Straight and to the point with this app and it is pretty beautiful and utilizes green and red colors without me thinking of Christmas :)
For me, all the app needs is the option for the user to set decimals or not and iCloud backup. I have been in touch with the developer and it sounds like these items could be in the works. He is very responsive and helpful with any questions.
Great for Dave Ramsey-style “Envelope” Tracking
I really love this app! It’s very, very simple but I find that’s what works for me over some of the flashier budgeting apps like Mint and ProActive Budget, etc.
I’ve been inspired by Dave Ramsey to do a cash envelope system to get out of debt and this is the perfect app for digitally tracking my envelopes and keeping track of what my cash funds are while I’m not at home.
I really like that the interface is no-nonsense, just subtract or add your purchases or money and you’re good to go! I think I’ve downloaded 10 budgeting apps but this is the perfect one for me.
I’d love to see an update where the main font was just a little smaller, but for 99 cents I really have no complaints and plan to keep using this well into the future!
Useless without the ability to add decimals
All I want is a simple app that will allow me to keep track of all the ins and outs of my business account without a bunch of extra bells and whistles. I thought this was the answer, but without the ability to add decimals, what’s the point? The app itself costs $.99 - it’s absurd to act as if financial transactions don’t include cents. I’m actually mad that I paid for this without doing more research on it first. Nice design, but that doesn’t effing matter when the functionality of the thing is garbage. At least give your users the CHOICE to reject the concept of decimals.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
