YOU NEED A BUD­GET (iOS and An­droid, free with in-app pur­chases)

Llanelli Star - - TECH NOW -

WHO needs a bud­get? Ap­par­ently I do, or maybe they mean all of us. Ei­ther way, they’re not wrong, are they?

This app is a great way to start. There have been a lot of bud­get­ing apps on the var­i­ous app stores for a while, but this is one of the best, es­pe­cially if

you can get over the ob­vi­ous fact that it’s tar­geted more at a US au­di­ence than a UK one.

Once you’ve man­u­ally changed the cur­rency to good old pounds, though, you’ll be up and run­ning in no time.

The USP is that it aims to help you set

long-term goals and hit them us­ing bud­get­ing, rather than just be a “this is how much you have to spend” kind of app.

They say it’s more a sys­tem than a sim­ple app, and it should be for the price – af­ter your month’s free trial, you’ll have to spend

£75.99 a year or £11.49 a month to keep us­ing it.

That would be worth it if it helps you achieve what it claims is pos­si­ble – and judg­ing by the tes­ti­mo­ni­als on the web­site, that debt-free, nest-egg build­ing fu­ture could be just a down­load away…
