Budget Touch
Budget Touch iPhone app spending and budget envelope reports.

Budget Touch Envelopes Report and Category Report

Snowmint Creative Solutions LLC
Budget Touch uses envelope budgeting to help you manage a budget, and the app is more comprehensive with a ton of useful features. This app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad was developed by the same company that designed one of the first envelope budget software programs I reviewed, Budget for Mac or Windows. You can use the Budget Touch app exclusively, or sync data to Budget for Mac 6.3 or later or Windows 5.0 or later.

The envelopes you set up are your budget categories, and you'll also set up accounts for entering your checking, savings and debit and charge cards - any account you receive income in or make purchases and pay bills from. Transactions can be split between multiple envelopes, and deposits can be represented by one envelope or you can split the income between envelopes to allocate the money to how you want to spend it. Funds can be transferred between accounts or envelopes.

Other budgeting features include:

  • See reports and graphs for spending, budgets, and more.
  • Bill reminders.
  • See transactions by month, quarter, or year.
  • Accounts can be reconciled.
  • Get account balances, envelope balances and account running balance with transactions.
  • Use included icons to customize accounts and envelopes.
Budget Touch is password protected with encrypted data. Your budget data can be exported in QIF, OFX or tab-separated formats and reports can be exported to HTML or printed (iOS4.2 or later required for printing). Budget Touch is available in US English and British English, and has been partially translated to German, and works with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (iOS 3.0 or later).
