    Hi,

    This is the ONLY app in App Store that support manage the money you would SAVE, and the money you would SPEND SEPARATELY. I wrote this app and love to use it to know my finances. It is very easy to use and everything is shown clearly.

    Tagging your expense, you can create as many tags as you like, and one expense can have multiple tags (e.g. food, milk). It is very quickly to add an expense this way.

    After added your expenses and incomes, you can get more information and benefit from it:

    Statistics
    - see the statistics in different period clearly, including subtotals by tag.

    Expense Control
    - we use a virtual account "Expense Account" to control you spending limit.
    - the Expense Account is like a budget, but when the month ends, the remaining money can still be used to spend in next month.

    Save Money
    - you can plan every income: how much money you would save and how much money you would spend for this income
    - with another virtual account "Savings Account", all the money you saved is in it.

    Investment
    - if you want to investing with the saved money, you can add you investment account to this app and record the transfer between the savings account and your investment account, so you can always know how much money left for investment.

    You can also record the currency exchange transaction on your real life. Passcode lock support. You can backup and restore your data through email.

    With so many features, the app is still awesome easy to use. Some features have never been seen in other apps.

    Hope you like it! Any feedback and comments are warmly welcome!

    [FREE]Money Zen: know how much money you have saved/ left to spend

    I use this app I developed to track my expenses and incomes, and know how much money I have saved / left to spend. It also can be used as a shopping list, support Passcode, iCloud auto backup.

    Money Zen divide all your money into two parts: the part you want to save and the part you want to spend. Every expense will be deducted from the balance of the money you want to spend. When you receive a new income, plan ahead how much money you want to spend, so you can always know how much money you have saved, and how much money you have left to spend!

    Download on the App Store

    HI,
    We are an online store who is looking for a expense and income tracker app. Currently we are using one, but that has a lot of missing features , so we need a better featured one.

    So, looking for a better alternative.

    And here are the features which I look to experience :

    Import Export expense or income
    Graph or Pie chart for expense vs income
    Profit calculation screen, where it shows month wise expense and income and the profit for it
    unlimited addition of entries
    iOS and mac sync, so I can add it anywhere and it auto synces to all of my devices
