Hi all,

One of my New Year resolutions was to get our finances under control - I used to be quite diligent, but things have fallen by the wayside recently....

Anyway, I'd like:

- Something I can track spending with on my (android) phone, and also allow DH to have access on his phone.

- Software which I can allocate money to in various categories, e.g. "groceries", "play money", "bills" etc.

- Any other useful features?

So far, I have heard good things about the "You Need A Budget" software, and I might give the free-trial a go. Are there any more recommendations?

I have been on YNAB for just over a week and cannot recommend it strongly enough! The support from the forums is fantastic. There is a 34 day trial which gives a decent amount if time.
