    Can anyone recommend me a good budget app? I need to find out where the heck all my money is going (besides Starbucks) so I can reel it in. I'm looking for something that is preferrably less than $5 and one where the expenses are easy to input on the run. Thanks.

    I've been using 'Budget' and like it. It's only $2.99. I tried two or three others but they were overkill for my needs and fairly clunky.

    Spend is very good and has helped me keep track of my monthly spend. Best of all it only cost me 59p

    I'll recommend 'Budget' too, saved me a lot of money! It's got all the features I need, and offers good statistics and backup/restore of all your transactions.

    I would recommend Ledger. It's great for keeping track of where all of your $ is coming from and being spent. It seems advanced at first, but it ends up being incredibly simple to use.

    I downloaded about 4 of the free applications and actually got Accountr when it was free for a few days. Accountr seems to be very good and it's what I'm using right now. I just wish it could consolidate all the expenses for a particular category and give you a graphical illustration. That would have it pretty cool - but right now, all you can really do is just make a list of expenses on it. Of course, you can export data to Google docs, but I would like an illustration while not near my computer.

    Here's another one that looks promising that just came out that has graphing ability. The only thing I don't know if it has is the ability to export data directly to Google docs. I know you can export data via wireless.

    Wow. iCompta looks really good with all the graphical representation. Wonder if it's easy and productive to use. Hope they have a lite version that i can try before purchasing the app.

    iCompta is really great. The desktop version is a freeware so you could try it. The iPhone / iPod Touch version is just as nice and it can synchronize easily with the desktop version.
