Money management apps

From acocuntkit faq I highlighted it says that Facebook at least also receives details about the device the user is using

Thanks. We are going to let you click on single tags, proper search and include them in our weekly reports. :slight_smile:


I am looking forward to geeking up even more with this - thanks!

No love for Tandem? :joy::joy:

The approach I’ve used for years that’s kept me right is entering in all my known upcoming transactions (DDs, subscriptions etc.) at the beginning of the month, so I always know how much I’ve got free to spend. I use Debit & Credit at the moment, which is a nice app, but I have to enter every transaction manually :tired_face:

Is there anything that supports this kind of approach?

From the replies here, YNAB sounds closest… is it possible to use it without buying into the whole philosophy of living off last month’s money?


Anyone else find it annoying that Yolt forces a refresh that puts you back to the top of the transaction list after you recategorise something?

Emma seems way better for this.

You still need to enter everything manually in YNAB, unless you’ve got Barclays I think.


we have a thread dedicated to the tickets to avoid cluttering up others

Anybody recommend a good budget app for iPhone that allows you to track your income and expenditure across multiple accounts and have it categorised nicely?

I’ve been using Pocket Expense for a few years but it hasn’t been updated in over a year now. :frowning:


Try Emma - it’s free!

I’ve tried Emma, but I like to do everything manually. I can have accounts for ‘cash’ and for any money people may owe me, so having something manual works a lot better for me. :stuck_out_tongue:

If you’re not looking for any account syncing, I use Debit & Credit. It’s free up to a certain number of accounts and a cheap one-off payment after that.


I’m really not a fan of a FB login and that would stop me using the app…

Any chance of allowing others such as Google for Emma login?

Also, am I wrong in thinking that Monzo is planning to do all this stuff?

(Adam Kendrew) #57

This might be exactly what I’m looking for. I’ll give it a try! Thanks :raised_hands:t3:

In which case Money Monitor might suit you. It’s very American, but also very configurable. It has categories and subcategories and an unlimited number of accounts. It’s also free with advertising and cheap without.

Not automatic (entirely manual), but I’ve found 1Money on Android the best I’ve used.

Spending and transactions like Monzo, budgets per month or by category, add and edit categories.
Savings accounts and goals.
Debts (complete with a percentage bar to see how much you’ve paid off).

I don’t know if this would help, but been invaluable for me alongside my Monzo


I just submitted a bank request after seeing your post. Plum sounds promising, especially with the RateSetter partnership.
Though I would prefer if they had their own app like Chip as opposed to using an AI Bot via FB Messenger, but would definitely give it a try.
How have you @brenda found it interacting with the Plum via messenger? Pros & cons please.

You can try Yolt. Does not need fb or any other social media. It does support Monzo and starling along with the legacy bunch

Strange I can’t seem to see this on Google Play.
