Customer Reviews

I love YNAB

I never write reviews but love this one enough to actually say the app is great and has changed my financial life. Now I track and budget much better. It took hours to understand the system but once it's learned you get a whole new vantage point. I love being able to write in my transactions as they occur and see the remaining balance in the category. The GPS location function is really nifty and makes the already fast process of inputting transactions even faster. I used to hate
Budgeting and now I actually like it.

Good app, great budgeting method

I use the app all the time and it’s really helped me better understand my spending habits. There are some limitations compared to the desktop application but that’s to be expected. I did have problems using on the iPad but I don’t think that’s really what the app is for. It allows you to quickly record spending on the go, as you spend. The app is good but it’s the budgeting method that is really standout. It takes a while to get used to it but once you do, it’s very, very helpful.

Thank God for YNAB & the YNAB app!!!!!

YNAB has changed my relationship with $$$ for the better. I am actually excited about budgeting now! Something I've not felt in 34 years! I'm 34 years old, so yeah!! Never felt this way.

I have NEVER felt so empowered re: the $$$ I've earned or any windfall. Instead of hiding from debt, I am running to it. I prayed for a solution that would finally help me manage my finances and save for the future in an effective way. Then, YNAB came my way. I've tried Mint, and other programs, but nothing has impacted my LIFE like YNAB.

My spending habits have changed within one week of using YNAB and the app.

The app helps to ensure that I am documenting my spending. It is quick and easy to use. The interface is clean and modern which I appreciate as someone who judges apps not only by how well they function, but also by appearance.

Thanks to the YNAB creator and team!!!!!
