Love this budgeting app! Great tool to use the envelope system and zero-based budget while not using 100% cash. This has really helped me stay on top of things. My favorite feature they added is the new allocation manager which lets you work your total zero-based budget out similar to that of a standard budget instead of creating envelopes 1-by-1. I also like that when you spend in your respective envelopes it shows you the image of bills based on how much cash was spent.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I am a fan of the "envelope system" but using actual cash is a pain. Tried other apps, but linking bank accounts and cards is problematic: One Amazon purchase is for me, another for a DIY home project, so tags never work. And most major expenses don't change (mortgage, retirement). Plus, my bank offers tracking on its webpage. I just want to track personal spending, eating out, groceries... things I can limit and change. This is that. My wife and I set limits and we track. It allows us to pump the brakes (or not), but the data is like using a food app (i.e., Carb Manager). Not a fan of subscriptions (even 99 cents a month) but it allows my wife and I to coordinate. We used to crib notes on spending, only to be surprised later; we appreciate the real time aspect. Basic, but that's okay.

I got a little confused with the different budgeting sections, I assume it's for multiple people to use at once. but now that I've figured it out, I love the accountability it keeps me i, and it's less invasive than other budgeting apps. just a simple envelope system budgeting app with nice animations. strongly recommend for getting your spending under control.
