I'm an advocate of marriage meaning together in everything.

Sometimes even work. But i've had some trouble finding a "Personal" finance app that would allow me to make shared budgeting and allow input from several users.

It's somewhat like a google docs stuff for finance. I've been using doodle spreadsheets since shareability with my wife is the utmost important feature.

    is it important to have distinct users and track what each one does? Otherwise - there's no meaning to "several users", you can just use the same login. User access is needed only for audit purposes or restriction settings - both features aren't usually needed for personal finance programs.

  • The thing is we might be using 2 computers at the same time while creating our budget and wouldn't like the app getting locked as a security meassure or anything like that. Jan 18, 2013 at 13:53

We use YNAB to handle our household budget - their latest version allows cloud sync between Android/iOS devices and various desktop installs. I have the budget folder shared with my wife's Dropbox account so we both an view the budget, enter spending, and make changes.

  • Great, does it work with any currency? Jan 18, 2013 at 13:48
  • I don't know about any currency, since I Just use it in USD but I do know that they support many currencies. There may be a listing on the web site. Jan 18, 2013 at 16:10

We use mint for just that. We have a "shared" account. We each have the mobile app and share the same pin for the application (not our phones -- you can set a pin in the settings on the application).

Thus we each share a login to the site, where we have setup all of our accounts. In the "Your Profile" link at the top of the page, you may select the Email & Alerts option. From here you may add a second e-mail account. This way if you go over a budget or have a bill upcoming each of you will get a notification.

We have setup budgeting through the web site, and either of us can modify the budget via logging in.


The best solution I've been able to find for this is MoneyWiz, where both are logged into the same sync account.
