Accessing Income v. Expense and/or Web Version on Mobile Devices
I love YNAB, but I've got a couple of complaints. Maybe my ignorance is what is keeping me from satisfying these problems.
First and most importantly, how do I access the "Income v Expense" that I can find on the web version ON THE MOBILE APPS?
My wife and I feel that that is so important for us, but we have to get on a computer to access that portion, because the apps just give us the age of our money and net worth.
That brings me to the second point. You guys seem to have disabled access to the web version on mobile browsers (even on my tablet). That is super annoying, because it would take me to a page that says we should just download the app which HAS EVERY FEATURE.
But as far as I know, it does not have every feature, including the various report functions like income v expense, and also using + or - when we add transactions (i.e. If I bought two sodas for 0.69 each but I bought them separately, the app won't let me add .69+.69, while the web version does.
So please educate me. What can I do to access those functions on the supposedly all-functioning mobile apps, or how to I get to the nice web version on my mobile devices?
Hi Tomato Deer !
Thanks for reaching out! There are a handful of features that aren't available in the web app—including access to certain reports, like the Income versus Expense Report. You'll want to head over to the web app to see that information!
Currently, the web app is optimized for a desktop browser and not the smaller screens of mobile devices. That is a lot of information for a tiny screen! I'm sorry that I don't have better news there.
That being said, we're always trying to make improvements! Especially as mobile use grows. Would you mind sending over a Feature Request for those suggestions? They go straight to our development team, so they can consider the options and plan for what's Up Next in YNAB!
When you add a transaction, you are able to do inline calculations. I've included a screenshot below, to show how that works. Once you press 'Enter' then the final amount shows in red (or green, if positive).
If those are two separate transactions in your bank account, I'd recommend entering them individually. That way, YNAB and your bank match exactly!
