How to enter an overdue bill?
Our app doesn't keep track of the due date, or if it's overdue, so you don't have to worry about that part. It's all about how much cash you've got left.  For instance, if your bill was originally $10 but has a late fee making it $12, just enter $12 as the expense.


Entering a monthly saving
How much will I have saved if I didn't spend anything, on a certain future date?
While it's unrealistic to assume zero spending, you can check future balance with these simple steps.

Step 1: Open the 'Log'.
Step 2: Pick a future date.
Step 3: View balance at the bottom.
How do I enter a stock purchase?
When you purchase a stock, you can enter it as savings. For example, if you purchased Apple shares for $10,000, add a new one-time savings entry for this amount.
I sold my stock. How do I record this transaction in the app?
When selling a stock, withdraw the same amount from your savings that you originally entered when you purchased it (e.g., withdraw $10,000 for the sold Apple shares).

Recording a profit or loss:

if you sold the stock at a profit, enter the amount as new income in the "Profit on stock" category (e.g., $2,000 profit from selling Apple shares for $12,000).

If you sold the stock for a loss, enter a new expense in the "Loss on stock" category (e.g., $5,000 loss from selling Apple shares for $5,000).

Note: You can delete the savings entry when selling a stock and only record the gain or loss. However, we don't recommend this method as it eliminates information about when you bought and sold the stock, making it harder to track your investment performance.
Track savings from the past
We are planning to makea feature to do this easier. In the meantime, these are the steps to track your savings from the past:

1. Enter an income for the savings amount

2. Add a one-off saving, and you can give a title, "Savings from the past".


Sharing a budget
Sharing my premium features with family
You can share premium features with your iCloud Family. Here is Apple's guide on how to share purchases with your family:
Issues with Family Sharing
If you experience issues, please check if the subscription or the one-time upgrade is shared under Family > Family Sharing.

When sharing the subscription, then you can see it being shared:

When sharing the one-time upgrade, Purchase Sharing feature needs to be enabled, and the screen looks like this. This shares all your purchases and the payment method, so it might not be enabled yet.
