With the Home Budget with Sync app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac and Windows you can sync a personal budget between all of your devices. You do need to buy the app on each platform you want to use it on, which is a downside, but there is a lot of flexibility for users who want a more hands on approach to budgeting.

With HomeBudget you can share between family members and between your devices so you see the same budget on all of your devices.

HomeBudget is a good option for users who want to be able to do a lot of manual manipulation. This is not the best budgeting app for every user, but for those who want a lot of control it is an excellent choice.

HomeBudget is $5.99 on iPhone and iPad, $5.99 on Android, $19.99 on Mac and $14.99 on Windows.

        Agreed. I don’t care for mint too much myself. It doesn’t update me with every charge, every so often it will. I don’t think it’s as user friendly as some of the others.

    We are currently developing a new budget app for android , which would allow users to parse the receipts automatically from the photo and extract all kind of information you will need like: total amount, date, name of the shop, list of purchases and their categories.
    If you like the idea, you can help us by signing up the beta access here: http://appkeep.me

    Would classify myself as a finance nut here, was looking around for finance apps and tried all the Android ones recommended, but most of them seem to be more of bells and whistles and Material Design/Flat Design but lacks advanced functionality.

    Ultimately I went for Expense IQ (https://goo.gl/RKUKMG), which has the complete set of features I need, even useful stuff like a Bill Reminder, Budget Planner within the app. It is so powerful that my friend uses it for his small business.

    I reached out to the developers, who told me that they are working on a major UI refresh, which takes time as the app has too much functions and they don’t want to break the app for current users. Very responsible and friendly people!

    Definitely recommend to check out, as the free version (https://goo.gl/RKUKMG) is probably enough for most people’s personal finance needs. I bought the Pro version, as it is a one-time purchase, and one of the rare few finance apps that don’t charge subscription fees! Way to go! Just give it a try and you may like it too, if you are as serious about managing finances as me.

      There’s some kind of weird negativity in the comments.

      Thanks for the recommendation Nathan! I tried out Expense IQ, it’s really good and offers way more than most other recommendations in the comments. The other apps look amateurish and are just not “smart” in comparison. Expense IQ feels like it’s designed by people who really care about personal finance, and knows what people need to save effectively.

      I love the reports (that actually make sense), flexibility, powerful search function and bills reminder, and there’s still so much in the app to discover.

      It’s my personal favorite after trying out the recommendations in this comment thread. If you are looking for an app to use long-term, no other app even comes close to Expense IQ (at least for me).

    We created MyMoneyPicture as a simple application that helps you track your expenses, monitor account balances, and compare actual spending to your budget.

    MyMoneyPicture is free, and does not need access to your accounts. Spending is entered manually to increase awareness. It only takes a few minutes a day. The site is optimized for mobile to make entering spending on the go super quick and easy.

    I don’t like that with mint, i can’t see total income & total expenses for each month. Thats so dang basic.
    It would be great to see how mich comes in, how much is spent on the necessities, & how much is spent on combined extras like entertainment, then how much is left over…for example how much can be sent to savings after seeing how much “extra” you have each month.

    2) import and export (many apps knows it, but not every)
    3) need to see imediately, how much i spend in a given month – and this is a problem:(( Aps have reports, filters, but its unnecessarily complicated. I want to see my spendings, when i run the app. Android apk Financiator is perfect for me, but now i have iOS, and there is no alternative

    I’m looking for a budgeting app that will allow me to work from my salary month (15th-15th) rather than just the normal month (Jan,feb,march). But I don’t really want to connect it to my bank account. Any suggestions?

    A very nice list! Personal Finance Apps have definitely changed the way budgeting is done, I have tried some of them before. And there are of course many apps out there with different features and that’s absolutely great, as it gives the opportunity to choose the most appropriate one. Right now I am using the personal finance app inBudget because it makes it easy to share my money management experience with my friends and family as it has great social features. It’s a great choice if you want to manage your budgets together with someone else as it can be great motivation to stay on track. I think it’s quite a new app and has a potential to be added to the list as well.

    Spendy is my favourite: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spendy-all-your-expenses-spendings/id958342964?ls=1&mt=8
    Been using it for a while now, sick design and straight to the point.

    I have tried to find my perfect budget tracker app, but it is not an easy task. Among those that you described (nice review, by the way, thanks), I tried only several. Mint was the best one, I guess. Although I do not like all that “connect-to-a-bank” staff. I do not want some 3rd parties to know my income, etc. I am a little bit paranoid to it :) I just wanted to have a possibility to track my expenses and see the statistics.

    Additionally, I tried Money Lover (not in your list, btw). It was too overloaded with the functionality and Ads, so I quit it.

    So, we developed an alternative. It is called “MonKey” (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.avabrosolutions.monkey). For me, its main benefits are:
    – Easy to use
    – Not overloaded with the unnecessary features
    – Intuitive
    – Ready-to-go – install and start to use (without loads of boring configurations)
    – Works offline (except for some non-vital functions)
    – No ads all over the interface
    – Anonymous – nothing is stored on the external servers
    – Different input methods (manual, fast, voice, scanning)
    – SMS banking – parsing of the push- and sms-messages from the banks, without needing to bind the actual bank account to the app. Currently, the list of supported banks is limited, but it can be extended by request.
    – Possibility to create your saving goals for the categories and monitor the progress

    It is distributed free of charge, with the possibility to purchase the extended features inside of the app.
    It is not a commercial comprehensive solution, but it’s nice and easy
