"... I'm convinced that if you need an easy-to-use app that will scare you in to sticking to your budget you can count on Left to Spend." - Lifehacker.com 

"It’s an elegant little app that does one thing well..." - MinimalMac.com
 'Left to spend' takes an approach to budget management that is completely different from all other budgeting apps. Instead of overloading you with features and options 'Left to spend' cuts to the core of the task and gives you an immediate and intuitive overview of your current financial situation. 
To use 'Left to spend', all you need to do is set up a daily allowance that you KNOW won't break your budget. To calculate this amount, simply subtract all your monthly expenses (bills) from your monthly income and divide the result by the number of days in that month. Every day this amount is added to your total allowance. Whenever you spend money you simply open 'Left to spend' and enter the amount, subtracting it from your total allowance. If your total allowance is running low, you need to slow down your spending and wait for your allowances to accumulate. As long as you never get below 0, you'll never have to worry about money again! 

Managing a budget should be simple, satisfying and FAST. 'Left to spend' turns its back on bloated budget apps and all their unnecessary features. Do you really want to manage the more advanced aspects of your budget (like recurring bill payments or loan payment plans) on a 4" screen? What good is tracking the location and type of your expenses, if you don't have time to enter them half the times you make a purchase? 'Left to spend' is so fast and easy to use, that you will want to use it every time! 'Left to spend' WON'T:
 - Ask you to input your recurrent monthly expenses
 - Ask you to categorise your spendings 
- Show the location of your spendings on a map
 - Present you with with a chart of your expenses Instead 'Left to spend' WILL: - Tell you, at any given time, how much money you have left to spend!
It is a personal finance app stripped of all features. Let this liberate you!



  • Not worth the money

    There are several other apps that do what this one does that are free. Bought it because I expected more.
  • Perfect for Trip Budget

    By Overnightwalker
    I just took a vacation with my young adult daughter. It was my treat, but I had a limited budget. I thought this app might help us both make more thoughtful choices about spending. Boy, did it work! From the first fast food restaurant, where my daughter chose a cheaper meal than usual to the mall, where she made her own decision that there was only enough in budget for one souvenir, this app was great for her awareness. For me, it took all the financial stress away on the trip. I always knew where we stood, so I wasn’t stressed about wondering where the money went or having to say no. I love how easy it is to use the app, so it was easy to keep up with. At one point, I did forget an entry, but the feature allowing you to back and look at the dollar amounts entered allowed us to figure out what hadn’t been entered pretty quickly.
  • Perfect!

    This app makes it easy to implement a disciplined approach to spending money without the incredible overhead of most methods.
  • Great app!

    This is the prefect app for quickly keeping track of spending. It's super simple and easy to use. There is no extra stuff just enter how much you spent. If other budget apps don't stick, or are too complicated, give this a try. I love it because it's all I need.
  • Perfect

    This app was great before...and now with the iOS 7 update, it's even better! It's beautiful, simple, and does exactly what it says it does. The beauty is in it's simplicity. Download this.
  • This is a great app

    Great app. Great simple design and highly effective because of that.
  • Spend Less!

    By TheDjangoman
    This app has done what no other expense app has ever done! Made me aware of how much I spend. Excellent and well worth the $1.99! As a developer, you have been very responsive to customer input and have found excellent ways to implement requests while not adding complexity! I commend you for that!
  • Finally

    excellent app finally there is something SIMPLE to track your spending/budget without complex options or logging into your different bank accounts. DEVELOPERS please add the option to write in minor notes/info/detail about your transaction. Thank you!
  • Nice app!

    Good design with simple and clever concept. I would rather have number in app icon (eg. Calendar, Clock.) instead of notification reminder number on top, or you could make it in two options. On/off switchable for both. Like 2K in icon and 2000 on top.
  • Life changer!

    I've been using Left to Spend for over a year and it's completely changed the way I keep track of my daily spending. I've used more complicated apps but found myself coming back to the ultra simple approach of Left to Spend. I use it multiple times a day whenever I make a purchase. I don't miss the features of the more complex apps at all. The point is - I USE Left to Spend where the others fell by the wayside because there were too many steps. If you're looking to try an get some control over your daily spending give this I try. I purchased the in-app upgrade more to show support for the developers but I find the app icon badge showing how much money I have left is really handy.
