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

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.
