    Clarification: do you mean a desktop app which does not require internet connection? 

    YNAB works in modern browsers, so MacOS is already supported.

    Great point of clarification  WordTenor .

    If you mean a standalone desktop app that is native to your machine, then it's something that's on our radar for sure. I couldn't say if/when for sure, but we've been keeping track of requests for this ever since we introduced the new YNAB! I'll tally another vote for you!

      Khaki Device You said "usability" — can you describe any scenarious in particular? It always helps.

    • Todd For me YNAB is an important tool and I would like to have it as an separate app instead of one of many tabs in my browser. In an app you don't have to load a website and log in, just click an icon and you can start using it. But there are more little things like customization of the columns (I don't like it that I can't see the entire text in the Memo column). The user interface in the web app is "stiff".

  • There are many folks such as myself who frequently travel for work and are unable to install non work-related software on our work PCs.  The web based YNAB has allowed me to stay on top of our household finances while traveling.  If YNAB wants to go back to a desktop based version of YNAB then I guess they can do that.  But I thought that the whole point of the web based YNAB was to end the requirement to maintain multiple code bases.  And I would really hope that a desktop version would not be at the expense of the web version.

      bobbucy Conversely, when I travel for work, it is generally to countries that may not have stable internet connections so I would have to rely solely on phone entry that hopefully syncs eventually.

  • One semi-workaround I've used with people in my family is to set them up using Fluid for Mac. It doesn't solve everything, but it does let you use YNAB as an app that lives in the Finder and can be added to the Dock, which makes it easier for some people to use. It's effectively just a (Safari) wrapper for the website, but having a dedicated, separate app makes a world of difference for some people.

    Of course, if what you're looking for is native performance and the sort of polish you expect from a native app, you won't find it this way.
