Android Widget

It would be nice to have an Android desktop widget with selectable categories to see highly used category balances quickly

  • Hi Mike T !

    It sounds like you're referring to an Android version of the iPhone Allowance add-on, listed on our Works with YNAB page. There isn't an Android equivalent yet, but you can post in the API section of the forum for further discussion or submit a Feature Request to let our product team know you'd like to see that option. :)

  • Hi Faness,

            It would be similar but with Android it doesn't require a separate app.  Android apps have widgets that can display information on the home screens.  This isn't something that would require the use of the API.  I will look at the feature request.

    • Mike T Thank you for cluing me in here! :)

      Since an Android widget is something our development team would need to create, the feature request form is the best way to go. Thank you for taking a look at it! We can't guarantee any future features, but filling out that form lets our development team know what you'd like to see going forward.

  • I was just about to suggest the same thing. Luckily I did a quick search first!

    This would be really useful. I would love to be able to see how much is left in the clothing budget (for example) 'at-a-glance' when out shopping, without having to open up the full app and search for the relevant category.

    A fairly simple listing of categories with budget available would work. Then link back to the app for full functionality.

    Great suggestion!

    • Hi Forest Green Thunder !

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this idea! If you have a moment, please submit a Feature Request to let our product team know your thoughts, too! :)

  • Yes, hopefully this gains support. It seems simple and would vastly improve the experience of using YNAB on Android. Please do the feature request, to garner support, if you're looking for the same thing. 

  • Hey folks! I wanted to suggest a quick tip that may help save some scrolling in the meantime:

    You can pin categories to the top of your budget in the mobile app for easy access. On the Budget screen, tap a category and select Details. Then tap the Pin at the top right.
