    Hi, can anyone recommend a simple mobile app for tracking spending? Preferably one that backs up automatically online and also exports to Excel if possible? Thanks!

    I'm unsure if it exports to Excel but I would highly recommend YNAB to keep track of spending. I use the classic version but they have an online version for 5 USD a month and it has mobile apps compatible with it.

    Hi I use account tracker which isn't free but is cheap - it costs 1.99 one off payment for the basic app.
    You can back up to cloud, export and synchronise between devices.
    I love it as I can set up all my budgets and accounts, set reccurring payments so I can see at any point in time what my balance will be. Not include the balance of some accounts in my total available e.g emergency fund so am not tempted to spend it! You can set categories for spending with thresholds and view reports.
    Debt @ Sept '16 = 51804 Oct '16= 51,095 1.37% paid off
    Oct grocery challenge = 229.05/250
    Oct AFD challenge = 20/31
    Oct NSD = 13/18
    Emergency Fund member #209 = 376/1000
