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:
It's fast & painless to switch between two budgets. Happy stuff.
View spending across all accounts. Excellent.
You spend less with the new interface. We can’t back that up. It does make everything better.
Add transactions & check category balances fast with the home view.
Awareness! When you add a transaction, the category balance tells you there’s a gajillion dollars left. Or less.
Tiny wins: new splits handling, quick navigation via the sidebar, pull-to-refresh, & pinned categories at the top.

Where has the landscape gone? A few niggles with the Android version.Echo previous reviewers re: not being able to modify budget on tablet version but also latest version on my tablet no longer displays in landscape...and I can't find a setting to allow it. Apart from that, once you get your head round the YNAB concept, it's very good. After a bit of poking around finally found how to force a sync....not obvious now and slightly frustrating as a result. Also no feedback to confirm sync succeeded.

I love it I absolutely love this program! It's easy to use for the first time budgeter. The only thing I ask is that a widget is made. It would be great to have a widget for transactions and to see a snap shot of your budget!
