Never heard of YNAB?
It's easy-to-use budget software coupled with a powerful methodology. Download our free trial at YouNeedABudget.com! It runs on Windows and Mac.

***** IMPORTANT *****
This is a companion app for YNAB for the desktop. You must have YNAB installed on your computer. (Note that it will not work with YNAB Pro, our old desktop application)
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)
* Wi-Fi network: Your device and computer must be connected to the same Wi-Fi (wireless) network, or your computer must have a wireless card.

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.

Great Financial Tool Using YNAB, my wife and I can both enter transactions on the fly from our phones. Great to track, categorize, and budget expenses. If I could recommend anything, would just say to remove the splash screen when opening the mobile app. In a drive through those extra seconds matter.

Solid and useful... Love it but would like to see them squeeze just a little bit more functionality into the android version. Seems to be coming along. Update: After 7 months this is my most used app. Fully justifies owning a smartphone.

Broken Newest iPad edition that came out broke cloud sync. Now it no longer works at all. Support has been glacially slow.

Good budgeting app but will give five stars when it becomes more functional and when UI is overhauled. This one is pretty old and ugly.

Software good....but They seem to only care about iPhone. Been hearing about a redesign for android for a year now and iPhone has had its own redesign plus a full fledged iPad app. If it takes them a year to redesign it how long until we get more functionality in the app? It's verging on ridiculousness.
