Budget App

Hello All, any recommendations for a free Budget App that I can use on my phone? I currently use a spreadsheet and aware of the MSE spreadsheet. I have seen several posts here about budget apps, but they are a few years old. An app that can be reconciled with my bank would be a bonus, but not essential. I have checked with my bank and they do not have anything. I want to be able to update the app while on the move rather than updating at home on my PC at the end of the week. Best wishes, Daznet.

    I use Moneyhub, am currently halfway through their 6 month free trial. There's also Money Dashboard which is free. Both can use Open Banking connections to automatically pull transactions in.

    I’m interested in this too. I love YNAB but it’s getting so expensive

    Hi everyone - not sure if you've tried MSE's app? I don't think it would yet fall into the category of the 'budget app' you're looking for but there might be some useful tools in there.

    More importantly, though, we're always on the lookout for people to talk to about how we can develop the app so would be good to hear any thoughts on what you're looking for such an app to do.
