    Hi there,
    I'm looking for a expense tracking application. something simple: I don't need budget planning and so on but just keeping track of my expenses and for each record the option to add a PDF receipt.

    Do you guys have any suggestion about?


    Thanks

    Yeah, me too. Add everything to excel in categories (there are a number of templates). Then take all of the receipts and scan them for PDFs.

    I've tried a bunch of the expense programs on the iPhone and eventually just give up and go back to my original Excel file.

    I've been using Squirrel for a couple of months. I'm pretty happy with it. I needed something very simple for expense tracking as well. It's cheap and there's a demo.

    Squirrel looks fine but I couldn't find the way to add an attachment to a transaction and this is basically the only feature I'm looking for.

    Oh, yea I don't think it has that feature, at least not yet. You can import data files from online banking which is pretty cool, but no attachments as far as I can see either. Sorry! Goodluck on your search

    I think I found my pick: iCompta

    I know it is French but nobody is perfect :):):)

    I use "Cashbox" to track my expenses. It's free and does the job well.

    I use an app called Buddi.

    It's free and has some great charts that can be generated.

    thanks for your replies.
    both software don't allow to attach receipts (PDF file) to a transaction.
    So I will go with iCompta
