PostSubject: Budgeting Net Worth   Sat Feb 04, 2017 4:55 pm

I use You Need a Budget. Unfortunately they have switched to an online tool with a monthly fee. I still use the classic app for the Mac

Positives: Kind of an envelope budgeting tool
Negatives: The Mac version of the app will be supported for a limited time in favor of the web-based tool. The latter can download info from your bank/credit union

I use Mint and the budget tracker on my USAA account.Both of these do a good job of tracking my spending by category and help me track my spending habits in order to improve for the future.

Mint!! Mint is fantastic. Also a simple one but a goodie: the simple Calculator app. I whip it out a few times a week or even a few times a day just for everyday financial needs. My roommate uses You Need a Budget and really likes it.

App Name: Mint
Purpose: Budgeting, bill pay, expense tracking, goal setting
Positives: Great charts and graphs, gives out very useful and practical tips
Negatives: There isn't a way to tell the app that an expense is unusual or a one-time deal. It just folds the outlier in to the data, which really throws off averages.
