Don't have YNAB yet? You can download a free trial of YNAB for Desktop at YouNeedABudget.com

REQUIREMENTS: You must have YNAB installed on your computer. (Free trial available at YouNeedABudget.com)

APPLICATION PERMISSIONS:

Network communication:
[Market license check] This is pretty self-explanatory.
[Full Internet access, view network state, view Wi-Fi state] These are all needed for the sync functionality, so we can read the device's IP address, check for connectivity, and talk to the Desktop app during the sync process.

Phone calls:
[Read phone state and identity] We use the device's ID as part of the encryption process when communicating with the Android Market to verify the license status. This is recommended by Google.

System tools:
[Automatically start at boot] This is so we can display the notification of unsynced transactions in the status bar when the phone boots up. The app doesn't leave any code running in the background all the time; this is a simple check on startup to display the notification, and then it shuts down again.

Recent changes:
FIXED:

- Now include newly-added splits when recalculating the total of an existing split transaction
- Category amounts were sometimes wrong on the last day of the month depending on user's timezone

Best budgeting tool you'll ever find One request, subtotals for each of your budget categories. That is the only thing I miss from the older version.

Need to be able to adjust the budget from my phone! I love this system. It is fantastic, but the inability to change your budget from your phone is a problem. A big problem. If I check something, like upcoming bill and find it will be less (or more) than I expected, I have to note this somewhere until I get home. This is bad for those of us who are unorganized and/or forgetful. This makes it more difficult to use and cumbersome to change everything when I actually make the payment. If I have down time, I want to be able to make the change right then. Please.

Game changer I've never had this little stress when dealing with finances. Now I actually enjoy checking my GROWING accounts. My buckets are more organized, my latte factor is at a minimum, my debts are dwindling fast and I'm preparing myself to purchase my first investment property. All of this in a years time with this powerful tool. Best of all, no surprises. Annual charge anxiety is a thing of the past. Life changing.

The awesomest budget app The system is great, and the mobile app does what is needed. Looking forward for an even more complete Android app to use when I'm traveling.
