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.
The Envelopes app [for iPhone] is simple and doesn't require any links to checking accounts or other secure information.
A convenient digital version of the traditional envelope budgeting method.
App of the Week: Envelopes make a comeback in money management.
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.
Can I export my data?
At this moment in time there is no way to export your data.

Just what we need - This budget tool, using the envelope system, is a great way to live within your means. This non-cash method lets you keep track of spending without carrying around a bunch of envelopes. And if you need to move money from one envelope to another, it can do that. I like that it does the subtracting for you and even can reload budget amounts to envelopes with one click. All the control I need right from my phone.
