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.

NEW:

- App now enters scheduled transactions when they become due. To enable this, a full re-import of your budget is needed.

1. In desktop YNAB, click File > Save a Version.
2. Then click File > Load Another Version, selecting the time at the top of the list. Let Dropbox finish syncing.
3. On Android, in the main Budget view, swipe down to refresh. Tap the status bar notification to re-import the budget.

PC Sync Why do I need a PC to sync this app? Defeats the purpose, when it can all be done on the app (Dropbox API)

YNAB is helping us plan and save We've budgeted for years, often feeling stressed about bills and over spending. YNAB has changed all of this by giving us a current picture of our finances - anytime, anywhere. I'd like a bit more flexibility to change the budget in the app, but it does what it says it will. Very grateful to find and use this program.

Would like to edit budget from the app I do like the app and the concept of mobile accessibility to the budget. On an iphone or android phone, only needing to add and modify transactions is understandible. I do however, wish that on a larger device such as an iPad or Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, we would be able to make adjustments to our budget as we would on a desktop (as being in an orginization, my budgets and budget categories change frequently)

Love the Desktop, only like the mobile version. I am new to YNAB, I had a false start with it several months ago, but now I am back and trying harder. That being said, I wish the mobile app had just a couple more features. The first being screen rotation. And the second being able to actually edit the budget. These options are probably only needed in a tablet version. Anyhow, that is my two cents (I put them in my budget) on how to make this a 5 star app.
