Envelopes

Budgeting simplified.

Envelopes is a virtualisation of the envelope budgeting method. It is simple to use and allows you to keep a close eye on where your money is being spent, but without the need to keep paper envelopes filled with cash around.

  • Create unlimited envelopes and order them to your preference.
  • Set up a budget with Quick Deposits and distribute your income to all your envelopes at once.
  • Create withdrawals, deposits, and transfers with custom memos to track your spending.
  • Secure your data with a passcode, and use Touch ID if supported by your device.

FAQs

How do I share my data with my partner?

Sync is a work in progress. I'm designing a custom syncing engine built for sharing data between multiple people; it will be available in a later version of Envelopes 3.0.

How do I backup my data?

Envelopes backs up automatically when you backup your iOS device. So if you keep your device backed up, Envelopes will stay backed up.

How do I create a repeating transaction?

The envelope system is intended to be very hands-on, so repeating transactions would be counter productive. If you're finding that there are transactions that you're entering frequently with the same value, you should consider removing those from your budget.

How do I change the currency?

Envelopes uses your system currency, which can be changed by editing your region settings.

Can I export my data?

At this moment in time there is no way to export your data.
