Hello BP Community, managing REI is hard! I am looking for an easy to use personal finance tracking app to make everything a little easier.
I have tried mint, but have not had much joy as they don't support integration for all my financial institutions. Any ideas or suggestions?
If integration with your financial institutions is the issue, I am not sure how to help. I don't know of an app that integrates with more financial institutions than Mint.
I would second what @Paul Allen said I have looked through different solutions such as Personal Capital, and YNAB, but Mint is the most complete and I have been using it for years. You can manually add the few accounts that don't sync to make it complete if need be.
I use mint, love it. It's only viable for United States banks however, so no luck if you live or work internationally.
I use Quicken rental property edition. I have grown to dislike the program, but it does everything I need. I have tried Mint for a while, and explored going to Personal Capital, but its limitations in categorizing individual transactions would make it a nightmare to track my real estate business with. I am interested in exploring GnuCash, but I haven't really taken the plunge to go all in with it yet.
Would love to share with you our personal app - my husband built a personal finances tracker app as a pet project for us (hellofin.app) and it sends me a text every time money goes in or out of our accounts, and we can add a tag to it (like "christmas gifts" rather than the generic bank terms "shopping"). It shows us how much we saved and spent every month and shows our net worth at one glance.
Would welcome any and all feedback!
