HomeBudget is an integrated expense tracker designed to help you track your expenses, income, bills-due and account balances. It offers support for budgeting, and allows analysis of your expenses and income, including charts and graphs. Two key differentiating features of HomeBudget are:

1. Integrated set of features. The features within HomeBudget are well integrated such that a bill can become an expense (when you pay for it) and also adjust the account balance at the same time.

2. Family sync. HomeBudget includes Family Sync, an advanced feature that allows a group of devices within the household to exchange expense and income information, and work together within a single budget. Once setup, the devices sync with each other automatically over the air. Family Sync works across all features including Bills and Accounts. Please refer to the Family Sync Quick Start guide at for information on configuring Family Sync.

Pros and cons of HomeBudget with Sync app for iPhone and iPad

HomeBudget with Sync app good for

Ive been using that app for more than a year and I have to say: its great! I loved the fact that you can back up the app before changing iPhones or simply restore your iPhone, sending the backup to your email. And the fact that you can mark on the calendar when your bills are due to avoid late payment!
My wife and I were looking for an app to manage our budget together. This is clearly the best app weve found as it enables each of us to enter our expenses separately on our own iPhone and all of the expenses are synced so that everything is in just one place. I clearly recommend this app if you need to manage a budget as a couple!!
The app is very good. I use it since several years every day and had never problems. It is very flexible.
Lapplication ne souvre plus depuis la maj du 15 juillet 2016 (iphone 4-iOS 7.1) The app crashes, doesnt open since update on July 15th 2016 (iPhone 4-iOS 7)
I tested a bunch of apps but home budget was the most complete one. It should have more reports, charts and data comparasion.
Thats a great app. My only complain is about the frequency o updates of the system. In the app forum you have a list of opportunities from heavy users, and it sees that our opinions is not so important...

Some bad moments

I paid for the full version to be able to upload my OFX in it but the app does only import 1 operation per day! Pls apply a bug fix ASAP
Release 2.x was running fine, even on iOS 7. But since the upgrade to 3.00, impossible to launch it and the 3.01 did not provide a fix. The only way to launch it is to delete/reinstall. But the restore from DropBox does not work too !
A lot of expenses are not synced on my wifes device. Some are, some arent, and its been a few weeks now (other expenses have been synced since, its definitely a bug and its totally unacceptable to have errors of even 1 cent for a financial app (and we paid for it). You have to fix or reimburse, the app is useless as of now.
This app is very useful for one controls his expenses but has lots of issues to improve. I had a big problem when I updated my IOS, I lost all stored data in my Homebudget.
The apps lite version worked perfectly, the paid version is full of problems!! Not worth paying a premium price for an app that does not work properly. First the transition from the free to the full app is ridiculous and you may end up losing your data. Then on the paid version family sync does not work properly and you end up with inaccurate numbers all the time! Customer support keeps on pushing that the fault is on the user side and that you have to reset data on one of the devices and start syncing again. Things work fine for a while then problems are back again! Did this process a couple of times, the app has been updated since then but problems still go on. Customer support even stoped replying to my requests to fix the problem. The apps concept and interface is great, it is definitely a pitty it does not work!
I cant get the different devices in the same group. Sync is impossible.
