App Description

Lite version of HomeBudget with Sync. Limited to 20 expense and 10 income entries. Now available in mobile (iPhone/iPad) and desktop versions (Mac OS), including instant data sync between mobile/desktop versions. 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/computers within the household to exchange expense and income information, and work together within a single budget. Once setup, the devices/computers 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.

App Reviews

  • Good app, but lite version is not useful

    By Red7755
    The Home Budget app is great and seems to be the best app because it allows you to set a budget that automatically updates each month, has sections for each type of expense, has a calendar to set bill due dates with reminders, etc. It is a great and useful app, however, this lite version is not useful at all. It only allows 30 total entries, then you can no longer use it. I haven’t seen where it tells you this anywhere. To my understanding it was fully functional, minus some features of the paid version, and wouldn’t have an entry limit. I’ve been using it, it’s been very helpful, then all the sudden I go to make an entry and it says the lite version limits you to the 30 entries and I can no longer use it. Not everyone can afford a $20 app. If it’s going to be limited to 30 entries it should clearly state this in the info so it’s not a waste of time downloading and using it just to be unable to use it later and have to pay the $20 & if you can’t then find another app, which won’t be as good.
  • Works very good

    I’m not sure why everyone is crying about only so many entries… Go buy the full version one. Don't give them a bad review because your cheep! Just a suggestion that when a bill is overdue have it turn red in the text boxes as well as you have it in the calendar too. Also when it sends notifications maybe have them come as individuals instead of all in one notification. Like the app and will be buying the full version soon.
  • Just bad taste

    By GaryG_
    So I’m sure this is mentioned SOMEWHERE on this download page, but I missed it and I think it’s important enough it should be clearly me mentioned. YOU CAN ONLY ENTER 30 ENTRIES ON THE FREE VERSION Not completely helpful for somebody trying to build a budget and track their money. I’m just starting to grasp my finances better and had really enjoyed using this new app that I downloaded last week. Just as the charts and graphs are starting to have enough entries for me to go from “blurry” to “sorta clear” when I looked at my money matters….. the app tells me I’ve had as much space as I can have and if I want to continue I can transfer my data or start all over… they don’t care which, as long as I buy the full version app that has no limitations similar to the lite version. I’m happy to pay for quality services and products, but that’s bad business if you ask me. Wha Wha. :(
  • I totally love it !!! It worth for free >>>

    By Annica1231995
    Easy to use. Easy to view and Easy to calculate. I love the Exchange Rate (guess). Since I use foreign currency like MMK. It shows in USD beside it. I can guess my balance in USD in a sec . THanks for free… PS- i write this review as soon as i test it . I don’t know if it is restricted for further uses..

    Will not import a file, OFX or QFX.
  • Can’t open due to new update

    By Lady80bug
    This app was great! It would sync with my phone perfectly, but since the last update this app no longer opens on my mac. I hope I can get this fixed because I really do enjoy using this.
  • Can

    By Also Disappointed Here
    After downlowning the latest update I no longer am able to launch Home Budget. It replaced the previous version I have so now I can't access any of the info I added from the previous version! If I could I would go back to the earlier version... the new one just doesn't seem to work at all!
  • Don’t Use The Lite Version!!!

    By Summer_Starr
    This app was very user friendly, easy to use, and helpful….until a screen popped up to warn me that I can only have 20 expense entries and 10 income entries and that I needed to buy the full version to add more. I am very upset that I wasted my time with this app. It is not great enough for me to want to buy it.
  • Works Great

    By Lateralus922
    Everything works flawlessly. I really like how they catagorized everything and made it very easy to use.
  • Crap

    By Gimme- a -Break
    This app only allows you to add """ONE""" income entry, but it says that you can add up to 10 Income Entries and up to 20 Expense Entries!!!!! Furious!
