A lite version of HomeBudget is available under the free applications category. Give it a try. Contact support@anishu.com, if you need help. We have no way of contacting you if you post an issue as a review. -- HomeBudget is an integrated expense tracker designed to help you track your expenses, income, bills-due and account balances. It offers support for budgeting, and allows analysis of your expenses and income, including charts and graphs. Two key differentiating features of HomeBudget are: 1. Integrated set of features. The features within HomeBudget are well integrated such that a bill can become an expense (when you pay for it) and also adjust the account balance at the same time. 2. Family sync. HomeBudget includes Family Sync, an advanced feature that allows a group of devices within the household to exchange expense and income information, and work together within a single budget. Once setup, the devices sync with each other automatically over the air. Family Sync works across all features including Bills and Accounts. Please refer to the Family Sync Quick Start guide at http://www.anishu.com for information on configuring Family Sync.

  • Good for iPad but too bad for laptop

    Doesn’t work properly on laptops with high resolution display. Letters and content are too small and tiny letters.Impossible to read.

    We have been using Home Budget for several years just as an expense tracker. I find it “good not great” but it gets the job done. One improvement I would like to see is on the “Reports” page, an ability to add comments or notes (there is an empty column already there that would be perfect for this...) to remind myself of out-of-normal expenses or income, or why one month was so different from another.

    Hi! I’m using Home Budget more than 3 years and I like it very much! That’s what I need! Strange thing happened with my Home Budget 1 week ago. I have 2 iPhone on one of them my kids deleted Home Budget. On second one app working perfect. I tried to re-install deleted app from my App Store. It’s asking me to pay again 4.55$! I can’t understand what is it and how could it be? Who can help me?

    The app is overall decent, but the lack of modifying functions and syncing with multiple devices is not user-friendly.

    User friendly and reliable. Really useful synchronization feature. My wife and I used it in during European tour to track our expenses by country and by category. The data generated confidence in our budget planning and will help in planning for our future trips. Highly recommended app

  • Wished I didn’t buy the desktop version

    By jmy303
    I’m so annoyed with this app on my phone and desktop. Every time I go to use it on my desktop I have to send initial data from my phone to my Mac. Things hardly sync up correctly, I see duplicate account names or transactions categorized as multiple category when it is not. And now I just deleted an account with its data because I deleted a duplicate account that had no transaction data thinking it was a duplicate and looked on my phone and the real account is now deleted. I’ve had this app for my phone for so many years and it did the job but now it seems so antiquated that it’s pretty useless. 2 stars because it’s good if you like basic, I rather give it just 1 star.

    It would be super nice if you could view only unchecked items so you could easily find a check you wrote 8 weeks ago that finally cleared

    Works great. If you keep up with the entries, you can sort and get history on any transition or payee. Very useful!

    By Kdemello21
    The app is great but we need bills that never end on recurring bills. Some bills have no end or end later than 2 years. Fix those issues and this app will be a 5 star.

    Was our go to app for a long time, to track our budget and expenses. However, now we can’t get our new iPhones to join our family‘s group so it’s useless to us. Switching over to another app.
  • Great App

    By old feller
    I have tried quite a few app to manage my spending and income. This app is my stopping point. It gives me real time acct balances and forecasts which include reoccurring bills and income. The owners manual is quite helpful also. Another feature is that you can add devices to your group list and they will automatically get updated with your entries from another device.......nice!
  • Great little app.

    Have been using this since August 2015. I like how my husband and I share this app. I like how credit card purchases and bank card purchases meld. TERRIFIC! I want to be able to archive info. I would like to be able to edit categories when there are already entries in them. Not to delete the entries but move them to another category as a unit not individually. I think this need had developed over time and usage.

    Edit: Latest Update July 2018 that allows for scrolling in the reconciliation area has a bug. If you reconcile some expenses and then scroll down past the check mark, the check mark goes away as if you never marked it. Solution for now is to hit done before scrolling down. I am happy to report that this app has been the most used app on my iOS devices for over 6 years now. Most 1 star reviews I have read are from lazy folks who can't be bothered to categorize their expenses and enter things manually. I enjoy the fact that this app is non-obtrusive and does not link directly to your bank account. I have been categorizing every receipt and know exactly how much my wife and I have spent on necessities and areas we should cut back on. This app is powerful because you can customize just how detailed you want to go with categories and sub-categories. Here is a hint - when you first start using this app just enter your starting balances and track expenses from that day forwards, don't feel overwhelmed by having to enter past expense history. This app gives me piece of mind in knowing knowing exactly what's going on and helps ,me find banking or overcharge errors. Also if you have syncing problems, you may need to simply reset your family devices and then send the data back out to get syncing working again. This is handy when you swap devices. Make a backup first and email it to yourself just in case.

    By i<3miabear
    I have tried 167 expense style apps on iOS, windows and Mac and this is unquestionably my favorite. The closest alternative is money by jumsoft and it doesn’t even come close. I asked the author to recharge or make a subscription of $5 a year or something to keep up development as That’s about my only complaint at this point. I love this app. It requires a lot of initial effort but once you get it setup, holy cow it’s the best!
  • Yep

    By Gadgetkk
    Overall I like the app, but it is a budget app only. It’s not really a check register (which for me is fine, but others may want to know). The only issue I have with it is the cycles for budgets to reset don’t seem to automatically reset and I’m not sure how to reset them vs deleting and recreating. The user guide is ok for the very basics but not very in depth to issues like that.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!! When we first got this app I thought it was great, but it hasn’t even been 30 days and all my info is gone and the app and computer program are GONE! I realized there is no phone number for customer support and I have sent tons of emails with ZERO reply! Just ridiculous and a waste of money and time!

    By JordanCreson
    This app is great for what I need. It keep thing simple and allows your to manage you accounts pretty effortlessly. I just wish that the UI would get an update. I’m a stickler for branding and I hate seeing their app icon on my home screen lol. That may be silly, but that’s how I feel. The user experience is feeling a bit dated as well, although it still works very well. I still recommend it.
  • Notifications

    By easy530
    Great app overall. Can you add a feature that allows for notifications every time a new expense is added to a specific account? Would help for those of use using the family sync option to track others spending.
  • My #1 App. Period.

    By SCSchulman
    I’ve used HomeBudget for probably the past 4 or 5 years. It’s how I keep track of all of my expenses on the go and at home. Of all the apps I’ve tried and used off and on, this one stays consistently in my top three. It’s the best, most useful app I have on my phone. I could not at this point live without it. In the four plus years I’ve used it, I’ve never had a problem until the other day. My budgets weren’t showing up correctly. So I emailed support and they got back with me and helped me solve the issue very quickly. Great app. Great service. If you don’t have a budget app on your phone, you need to download this now.
  • Need Improvement

    By eid guneid
    We need some improvements to app , such as new icon and best reports and most importantly to track any transaction, that mean i want to know how much was specific transaction in every month and totally, we need good visual design... thanks
  • Great expense tracker!

    By Trevor7968
    I’ve been using this app for about 3 years now and I’m very happy with how it’s allowed me to manually track m expenses and balance my bank account month to month. I would love to see a feature added though. It would be great to be able to have a different “budget” tab for each month. A lot like how you can scroll through previous months and future months in the expense category. It would give a lot of flexibility to look back and look forward in the budget tab to be able to plan better. And having iCloud integration would be great too! I love how the family sync is working with my wife as well! Great app!
  • Sync issues

    By jcapp82
    This has been our go-to app for keeping track of finances and bills. But I recently got a new phone and the family sync will not work. Any fixes for this? It’s incredibly frustrating. ESPECIALLY since I’ve had to pay for this app 3 times now.
  • Automatic exchange rate conversion doesn’t work anymore

    2
    By gisselle94
    I have an iPhone 6S Plus. I used to love this app, it seemed almost perfect. But with the latest update it seems that they changed some useful things. It no longer allows me to change the exchange rate between currencies. When I make transfers from one account to another with different currency. However I have the app on my Android, and it still works well there.

    Good app. But seriously needs the possibility to allow you to access your data in a web browser.
  • Recurring Items Needs Improvement

    3
    By teribat
    Home Budget works great for my wife and I except for 2 major sources of frustration: 1. Recurring expenses, income and transfers are device dependent, and only update/sync when you open the app on the device that entered them. I never know if I’m looking at current data, because my wife and I have entered recurring items on 4 dif devices (2 iPads and 2 iPhones) unless I remind my wife to open the app on both her devices first. Also, when upgrading to a new phone or iPad, any recurring entries entered on that device get lost. 2. If I find an error in an expense that I spread over 6 or 12 months, I have to individually delete each monthly entry and then re-enter the expense. There’s no way to simply correct the amount.
  • Account icons👍👍👍👍

    2
    By BenSouthPaw
    1)Let us use emojis for the account icons!!! 2) on the dashboard where you show percent utilized of budget, tell me what % I am into in the month!! So if I’m 60% through of my monthly budget, but I’m 90% of the month I’m in rough shape! I need to know the 90% too!! Give me two circles in ☝️ 😄👍🚙🔌🛒📱🚰🏡🚽

    This app changed my life; you can schedule your bills, keep track of expenses, log all of your accounts and export monthly and yearly reports. The only draw back is not being able to link your accounts directly to credit cards, checking, etc.
  • Not useful

    1
    By Shorthandfaithful
    I do not like the fact of this app does not sync with any of your financial institutes. Unless that is something you have to do from the computer rather than your phone. I want something user-friendly that just automatically connects. If I wanted to enter things and 15 times I wouldn’t have half the problems I do keeping a budget now.
  • Backups just stopped with no alert

    By Bilge81
    Automatic Dropbox backups were being taken until sometime in September, when they just simply stopped with no alert from the app. Upon checking the settings, it says my Dropbox account needed to be linked. If it became unlinked, I should have been alerted that the problem needed to be fixed. My data has not been backed up for the last 3 months!
  • Used to be great!!

    3
    By Ric Vegas
    I have been used this app since 2012. It has changed a lot since then. Some changes were great, but others, not so much! This list is extensive, but I would like to focus on some of them: - The app has changed its skin a lot: leave to the users the possibility to customize all the app, as they want. - They just removed the option to generate the future entries on due date. This option could give us the possibility to check the account balance in the future without seeing all the account entries repeated on the future list: bring it back. If it causes instability, try to fix it. - Extend the multi-language to other languages. This is a great app, but used to be better.

    Why the grey icons after the update? Also there used to be a way to see all of the income as a pie chart or columns with a date range - now you can view them month by month only. Also automatic back up doesn’t work. Get the income date range and icon colors back and I’ll update my review. Thanks.

  • Recruiting bills

    By piinklilies
    This app would of been great but it does not show the recruiting bills that I added for the following months after initial bill was created. Due to this I was late on several bills since a trusted that my bills that were showering were accurate. I contacted customer service by email and explained what happen and asked if they could correct this issue but they have yet to respond or fix it!

  • Goodbye after 2 years

    2
    By bign00dle
    This has been my go-to expense app for over 2 years, but when I recently restored my phone to discover HomeBudget was a blank slate, I was reminded of two things: (a) HomeBudget doesn’t leverage iCloud for backups, and (b) its Dropbox backup settings had mysteriously reverted from Daily to Never, meaning the past 6 months of data are now gone. Using Dropbox to backup app data is a fine if ersatz way to go, but not defaulting those settings to daily is completely incomprehensible to me. Why would anyone *not* want daily backups of a data payload that is so miniscule? It begs the question why the developers didn’t just implement iCloud backup in the first place. Set it and forget it. So, I’ve had enough. Goodbye Home Budget. And hello to Money Pro. An app which has stayed with the times, leverages all the iOS hooks properly, and even has some nice predictive AI to streamline the expense entering process. Money well spent, and I’m glad I made the switch.
  • Issues

    2
    By kspavel
    Using this app for very long time, probably one of the first customers... The only issues that I'm facing is data size. For example, if you saving receipts with your expenses then your data file becomes HUGE and there is now easy way to remove old receipts. Also, Backup/Restore to Dropbox doesn't work. It creates empty remote folder and never stores the data. It would be nice to backup your data to google drive too. Dropbox gives too little space if you on free version. Would be nice to be able to delete receipts for specific time frame. For example, I do not need receipts if they are older then 3 years. Or give us a chance to store those receipts in the cloud so data file would smaller.
  • The best budget app

    By Nishimare
    Update on iOS 11 iPhone 6s Plus. After updating to iOS11 the backup using dropbox broken. It wont initiate the backup anymore. Please fix this thanks. Just to update the review, everything works smoothly and the recent update doesnt break the auto backup anymore 👍🏻 but the update break the foreign currency conversion. Hope it will be fixed soon. Is there any major update to replace the current one ? 1. shortcut for frequent added expenses 2. Option to move sub category. 3. Overall interface enhancements because been using this app for a few years i think a redesign is good. Dont mind to pay again for another major update to support the dev. Hope this app will be always supported.
