Use this app if you're looking to sync your phone with your YNAB 4 budget. If you're a YNAB 4 user, we'll still be supporting YNAB 4 (and this companion app) all through 2016. If you're looking for the companion app that syncs with our new web application, you'll want to download our latest app called, simply, "YNAB".

    Is there a way to view next months budget on the app? Or edit the budget??
  • Great financial tool

    By GreenEggs06
    Love YNAB. Do nice to have access to the budget thru the app. Would be nice to be able to view reports via the app though. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
  • No more support at all

    By AlphaPal
    YNAB team should really consider grandfathering people who paid for life time of usage when they switched to subscription. All old users got the shaft when they switched to subscription based service. No support at all for what was the original YNAB. It’s sad to see the company change direction from helping people budget to becoming a part of the budget issue. If they just grandfathered users like all companies do, then we would be fine, but greed takes over when you become larger.

    A testament to good software development, solid financial wisdom and excellent customer service.
  • used to be good but now they broke it to make you upgrade

    By former1600
    every few months the app refuses to sync with dropbox, making it take forever to access my budget and update. i’m forced to reinstall and resync which is a huge pain and that only solves the problem for a few months, until it breaks again. every time this problem occurs, it freezes my (brand new!) phone, making it unresponsive until i force close the app. thanks for breaking it.
  • Worst Experience

    By stevenjchang
    App no longer syncs... I paid for lifetime subscription, which obviously means nothing to the company. They could have just left the product alone with no updates, but at least in a functional state. Instead the sync mysteriously breaks, rendering the app useless. considering filing complaint to BBB. Very upset.

    YNAB is hands down the best budgeting tool available. At $60 for a lifetime subscription I have gotten so much use out of it. But recently the app has been incredibly slow and freezes when trying to update. Would love if the devs would look into this!
  • Best budgeting app. Limited support.

    For me YNAB is an ultimate powerhouse for budgeting. It does everything you expect of a budgeting program to do. However since the launch of a subscription-based version, this Classic app started to crumble one brick at a time: - syncs are no longer stable, the app forces you to completely re-sync the budget once in every couple of months - the “Add transaction” button sometimes vanishes. Relaunch helps, but still frustrating - no support for iPhone X screen and features If there’s a lifetime subscription for the new version, I’m ready to pay for it once again, but it’s painful to see how less important the users of the Classic YNAB4 are for the developers now, since the subscription-based version has appeared.
  • Fails to sync

    By nyarik
    and then deletes your manually entered transactions like a charm. And here's the twist, after this it DOESN'T fail to sync, so you lose a month of manually entered data on your PC too. Happened to me three times during my almost four year experience of using the app. Good job, give your developers a medal or something.
  • iPhone X
