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.

Multiple budgets not supported Seems to be no way to switch have between budgets. I can create multiple budgets on my desktop (household vs small business) and switch between them; however, I can't find a way to switch on my android once I pick a budget file.

Love This App BUT.... My computer crashed and was sent to the manufacturer for hardware replacement. This means I will be unable to edit my budget for an indefinite amount of time because I can't do it on my phone. Such an important function was overlooked (or purposely left out?) and now I'm considering another app for my budget needs. I've read numerous reviews and know others have a need for the app to be equally stocked as the desktop version, so I am amazed ynab hasn't stepped up to meet the needs of their customers.

Works well. Needs visual update. The app works fine for what it does, BUT man does it need a visual overhaul especially now with Android 5.0 and Material Design.
