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 (Mac, iPhone, iPad, iTouch) 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.

Review by ShareFly

Love it! - What makes this app better than others is it's ability to sync between devices. We haved used the iPhone version. Now we have the desktop version so my iPhone, my wife's iPhone, our iPad and my Mac book all have the same information at the same time. This means we all know how much we got left in the budget as the syncing is done instantly. Great stuff.

Review by I miss a working app.

Cannot open - I have used this app for over 1 year and have loved it; however, with the newest version, everytime I try to open the app I get a problem report stating "HomeBudget quit unexpectedly". I hope this gets fixed soon.

Review by Jansen2818

Not worth the money - I’ve purchased this awhile ago and have tried to come back to it many times. When i orginally purchased it i could access it on all my apple products. Now it requires me to pay an addisional fee before i can access it. With the price i paid i should be able to have access to it on all devices. You can find free apps that do a better job than this as a paid app. It doesnt keep track of expense from my back account. I have to manually adjust my bank account with each “bill” Dont waste your money.

Version 3.2.9
Review by 1dmoon

HomeBudget With Sync - This app is one of a few that can duplicate my financial spreadsheet without being overly complicated and costly. My requirement is to know what bills are due and when each month, total expenses and total income month to month. The app is very flexible when adding recurring, one time and periodic payments. In a very short time I entered the content of my spreadsheet and could see my monthly expenses total month by month and my discretionary income. The app has some graphical tools to see where your money is going and tools for budgeting purposes. The interface needs a little rearranging but is not a show stopper. Needs more options for printing. Overall a very nice app and does what I want it to.

Review by OunPlay

Too many bugs - Please review your app, make sure it runs smoothly. Desktop version. $19.99 with discount price is still too expensive and app not working. iphone not working either. Crashed, can’t open. It’s look good, but not working correctly. Add Sub Cat, I can’t even type anything in. Please make this tax friendly. Not recommend.

Version 3.2.9
Review by Artem Liubeznyi

Does the job but feels behind iOS - I use this app primary on iOS and keep the Mac version just to have access to my financial data everywhere. The app does its job but its design feels outdated and seriously behind the iOS version which is somewhat frustrating.
