Best budgeting app. Limited support.

Shadow V.

For me YNAB is an ultimate powerhouse for budgeting. It does everything you expect of a budgeting program to do.

However since the launch of a subscription-based version, this Classic app started to crumble one brick at a time:
- syncs are no longer stable, the app forces you to completely re-sync the budget once in every couple of months
- the “Add transaction” button sometimes vanishes. Relaunch helps, but still frustrating
- no support for iPhone X screen and features

If there’s a lifetime subscription for the new version, I’m ready to pay for it once again, but it’s painful to see how less important the users of the Classic YNAB4 are for the developers now, since the subscription-based version has appeared.

Sync breaks requiring uninstall and reinstall


Ever since the updates for the new API I find the sync in Dropbox breaking (taking an infinite amount of time to complete and crashing the app) every couple months. If I delete the app and then reinstall it's good for another couple months. I never used to have this problem and don't experience it with the desktop client so it tied to some bug in the phone app itself.

Would not sync

Me too 4 6 8

I love this app and the desktop version that it goes with. I did have a problem, however. My iPhone stopped syncing with dropbox. I deleted the app from my phone, and then reinstalled it. Problem solved.
