Budget app for Android and iPhones

My husband has an Android, and I have an iPhone, and I'm looking for a budget app we can both use and that will sync between our phones. Does anyone know of one?

We have the hardest time keeping a paper budget, and I've thought we could do it if we had a budget with us at all times on our phones.

Re: Budget app for Android and iPhones

We use a spreadsheet and then we sync the spreadsheets with the phones. Would it be possible to have one spreadsheet on the computer, then you can get an app (for the iPhone it's called documents to go, not sure what it is for the droid) to sync the spreadsheet and you can view the spreadsheet on both.

If you want to do the spreadsheet method, use google docs for the spreadsheet (docs.google.com), and install the google drive app on each phone. Then you don't have to worry about syncing or someone having an out of date copy. And it's all free.

We are using ynab right now. It has apps for iPhone and android.

Wow! I actually did this with a free budget spreadsheet I found online and synced it to my phone through the Google Drive app. That is too cool.

Also, I checked into the YNAB site and loved it! And I downloaded the ebook, which has great principles. My plan is to use YNABs ideas with my free spreadsheet. I'm excited!!!!
