About this app

This app is designed to bring you the simplest form of money management in the most straightforward way possible. Create monthly budget envelopes, enter transactions, and track how you spend your money each month.

Take control of your own personal spending or collaborate on a budget with family members across devices. Receive updated budget information in real-time as family members enter transactions.

Through the interface and design, this app brings you closer to a physical envelope-style budgeting experience while still getting the benefits of being on your mobile device.

We all know what it takes to start saving money or start reducing debt: spend less than the amount you are bringing in. As simple as it sounds, this can be hard to execute. It is our hope that this app can assist you as you track your spending and that together we can achieve our budgeting goals.

It was great..for the first month. It said I was out of envelopes so I deleted everything from the current month to create new ones in the coming. Only for it to STILL say I was out of envelopes. It never told me that I only get to "use" them once. I assumed it meant 10 active envelopes, not 10 EVER made. Felt like it was not a free app but a one month free trial

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.

As a former Simple customer, I have been struggling to find an app that works the way Simple did. This app provides the essential part that I really enjoyed with Simple, and that is envelope budgeting. It doesn't connect to your bank account so you have to remember to enter the transactions yourself. The app is very easy to use. I'm glad that transactions can be edited or deleted. The interface is clear and easy to read. Overall, I am more pleased with this app than any other I have tried.
