Money management and budgeting apps/sites

Do you use a money management app or website that you like?

Can you link them to your bank accounts?

Are they any use?

What do you recommend?

This looks promising

Excel. Its a bit of a faff sometimes but none of the other offerings are flexible enough and/or affordable I have worksheets into which I cut and paste my ongoing statements from Smile and Axa. then I have a column to classify each item by category and another sheet which monitors my monthly outgoings. One does need to know a bit about excel but then its my job (computing that is).

For me it's "moneydance" - it seems to handle multiple currencies well. I do everything the hard way and enter all the data myself, mainly so I perform a double check on the ins and outs of our accounts. It covers Bank accounts, credit cards and investments - I haven't used all these facilities but when up and running is a good overview (and I can link it through to my smart devices)

How does it actually link to your bank accounts Cathy? What information do you need to give it?

On my old Windows laptop I used Microsoft Money 2005. It was very user friendly and could link to all my accounts. You can still download it for free on a couple of sites and if you check reviews it still comes out top. Now I use banktivity on my Mac, took a bit of getting used to, but it is a very clever app.
