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".



  • Best budgeting app. Limited support.

    By Shadow V.
    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

    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

    No iPhone X support.
  • Lagfest

    This app used to be good. Then they came out with a new subscription version and suddenly loading takes forever and hangs my entire phone. I want to support the devs and possibly upgrade to the new subscription service but this is very discouraging.
  • Nearly unuasble

    By trainstationblues
    Nearly unusable after upgrading to iOS 11. Crashes near constantly. UI is laggy and unresponsive. Looking for a new budgeting app.
  • Does not sync reliably

    By MGoLou
    App has gone downhill since they now offer their new subscription service. Does not sync reliably. Often gets bogged down. They’re sending a clear message that people who paid for YNAB4 are unimportant to them unless they move to their subscription service and pay the monthly fee.
  • Great app

    I hope if they add the reporting feature in the iPad Pro 12"
  • Me senti lesado

    By Caixa user
    Gostava muito deste app e suas funções. Fiquei extremamente chateado quando, algum tempo depois de comprar a versão paga (e bem paga) eles lançaram um novo produto, com mais funcionalidades e cobrando novamente um valor absurdo. #Traído. #Chateado
  • Exacrable

    By sslnn
    Missing entries, syncing errors, the company is pushing users to the new subscription app. Too bad.
  • Would not sync

    I love this app and the desktop version that it goes with. I did have a problem, however. My iPhone stopped syncing with dropbox. I deleted the app from my phone, and then reinstalled it. Problem solved.
