Chromebook Desktop Version on Chromebook

Using an Android App, "Crossover", I was able to install desktop version of YNAB for Windows on my Chromebook.  I have been using it for a few months now without any major problems.  I am not a fan of the online version of YNAB.  Right now Crossover is free, but once it comes out of beta it will cost around $40 I think

Every couple of weeks I transfer the YNAB data file from my Chromebook to my Macbook.  No compatibility issues between the Windows version and the Mac version of YNAB!

One complaint I had about Chromebooks was that I could not install and run YNAB, but with Crossover, I am loving my Chromebooks even more.

  • Does this work the same way as installing YNAB Classic from Google Play onto Chromebook? (I ask because I tried the Crossover way and it isn't functioning for me, but it seems so far that YNAB Classic app for Chromebook is (with my Dropbox syncing both this and my Mac up)

  • You need to download the windows desktop version of YNAB, not the android APP

  • I have had good success using chrome remote desktop from my Chromebook (but is assumes you have a computer somewhere with an actual YNAB install)

  • I got it to work ,,, thanks to the tips on the following website;


    I am delighted. I am new to Chromebook and have been struggling to adapt to its features.... but I am really looking forward to using the reports feature to see where HAS my money all gone.  The YNAB app is great for on the go budgeting ,, but the reports are the only way to see your true trajectory
