Syncing with Mobile

Let's face it, spending decisions don't only happen at home—so accessing your budget on the go is a key habit of successful budgeters. Happily, syncing your budget across devices is a breeze.


Make sure you’ve got the most updated iOS or Android app. You can create your account using either the web or mobile app!


Log in with your email and password—or try the Continue with Google option.


It's truly seamless—but here are a few things that might make it feel ... seamful?

Wrong App

If you've got a mobile app for YNAB Classic (a previous version of YNAB), it won't sync. If your app is asking you about Dropbox, you've got the older version.

Wrong Budget

Do numbers in your budget look different? Make sure you're looking at the right budget on your mobile device!

Tap the gear icon to go to Settings.
Tap Open Budget.
Tap the name of the budget you're trying to sync!

Dang Ol' Internet

In a bad cell? WiFi is out? Left your phone in airplane mode? It happens, and no one will hold it against you. You can still enter transactions when offline—just remember to pull down to refresh when your connection is re-established!
