Product Description

My Weekly Budget® (MyWB) lets you focus on a simple spending target for the current week. Focusing week-by-week on keeping within a spending target helps you meet your budget, and saves you money over time. When using MyWB consistently, it is easy to stay within your means because you are being updated on your spending each time you buy something.

This App is easy to use and easy to understand. It is SIMPLE but powerful. First, set yourself a weekly budget target. Then enter your spending with a uniquely simple, straight forward interface and instantly see whether you are meeting your budget. MyWB also shows you how much of your set budget you have at any given day of the week. The goal of this App is to help you control your spending with minimal effort.

The App is flexible enough to allow you to customize features to match your needs. There is also a quick and easy way to flick through your spending patterns from previous weeks - so you can get a clear view of where you have been spending your money.

At the end of each week, a brief summary for the week is presented showing how well (or badly?!) you have done against your target. Any money not spent may be carried over to the next week, so you can reward yourself with higher spending next week! Any money you received (birthday presents, cash-back on a pair of shoes you returned etc.) may also be added to your current week's spending plan if you choose.

MyWB supports your local currency and several other international currencies. You can show the date format to your liking, organize spending in categories as broad or as focused as you want, and includes the option to make your own categories to show personalized descriptions of your spending.

You can also export your spending information from MyWB by email so you can use it in other applications on your computer.

Do you find money slipping through your fingers? Not knowing where your hard-earned cash goes? Maybe you just need an occasional message to remind you what you were planning to spend this week? This is the App for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars An App to tell me what I already know- I'm broke! October 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I flat out love this app. With a busy schedule this app is fantastic for quick or on the go planning and budget keeping. At first I thought that adding all of my purchases was going to be tedious but it's quite simple. You can even change the day of your transaction to add something you forgot yesterday.

Expenses are by category so that you can easily go in and see where all your money is spent- mine is on food :p.

You can change currency for foreign travel.

You can favorite certain categories so that you don't need to scroll at all- this is a real time saver.

The welcome screen tells you how much money you have left to spend. This is very handy if you're out shopping and quickly trying to figure out how much money you have.

The app carries money over from last week that you have left over automatically.

You can export all of your spending data via email. It sends you a file that you can export into excel.

Easy to use and simple. There are no permissions other than a verify of purchase. No ads, no popups and nothing intrusive.

This is an application that I've been trying to find for quite some time, and I'm pleased to see one as the FAOTD. It's perfect for keeping track of how much you spend on a weekly basis and what kinds of things you spend your money on, which I really need to work on.

Pros:

- The categories feature is more extensive than I was thinking it would be, which is a plus. I like that you can pick and choose your favorites based on how broad or specific you want the category to be (ie bills or phone bills, food or a specific type of food, shopping or grocery shopping, et cetera).

- Adding an expense is very intuitive; you simply add a new expense, select the category, enter the amount, and then add it to the list. You can add small profits to your weekly budget through a similar process. The weekly budget can also be easily changed in the application settings.

- After adding an item to the list, you can change the date of the transaction by tapping on the item after you have added it, which gives you the option of changing the day and time. This is useful for adding transactions from previous days you might have missed, as well as planning expenses for the next day or week by setting a later date and/or time.

- After being further informed about the check license permission (Thanks, Robert!), I can say that this app has no worrisome permissions. Also, since it doesn't require an internet connection, ads are nothing to worry about for this app, and there's no in app purchasing or annoying billing permission!

Neutral (neither a pro or a con in my book, but can be interpreted either way by someone else):

- There is an option to change the currency of your transactions, which can be useful if you live or at visiting a foreign country.

4.0 out of 5 stars No problem changing settings October 3, 2013
By portia
Verified Purchase
This is a nice basic budget app, and don't be scared away from getting it by the supposed lack of a menu that a couple of reviews have mentioned. At least on the Kindle Fire I have, all one has to do is hit the basic menu button at the bottom and History and Settings will pop up, and you can make adjustments from there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple Way To Track Weekly Budget October 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
The interface of this app is very nice and it takes all the guesswork out of what you might have spent during the week. The menu options are under the settings. I had no issue changing my budget amount for this app.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 bug not worth - a star October 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
the little help section first bullet formats along the left side vertically one letter per line, then normal bullets. app works great on galaxy SII, seems to be a good way to keep track of cash on hand.

I always watch Amazon permissions very closely, the Google Play license check showed up on installation as combined Internet access. Normally this equates to they want to see every time you launch an app (very invasive), but low and behold this app runs after initial license check without Internet access.

From a usability standpoint, I like the idea of tracking cash expenditures without tying a bank account to an app. going to keep this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice, simple app October 3, 2013
By E Noel
Verified Purchase
I get paid once a month so i pay all my bills upfront. I allot myself a set amount of cash every week for gas, groceries, spending money. This app is perfect for tracking those expenses!

The one feature I wish it had is an accompanying widget for quick glance on my home screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK December 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
This program performs as described. Since I am not the only one in the household managing the money, I don't use it much since paper copies of the budget work better for us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy starter budget tracker September 18, 2013
By Jenn B
Verified Purchase
It is an easy tracker to start a budget. Simple to use and able to personalize categories. It also allows budgets to be adjusted easily or addtional money added, this feature makes it easy to account for varying cash flows.

My only complaint is that you can't change dates when entering a purchase, you must go back and edit if different from entry date.

Overall I would purchase again.
