Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Ability to add manual transactions
Money Lover is not connected to the users bank accounts. By not being connected that means users have to manually input (at least once) their recurring transactions or singular transactions..
Pro Option to add details with each transaction
Similar applications to Money Lover only offer a few details to add when inputting a new transaction but Money Lover offers a lot more besides the normal category and title. Money Lover allows you to add notes, contacts, a picture, location, and reminders.
Pro Useful graphs and charts
Money Lover offers the normal pie chart of your spending and also bar graphs to help you identify trends in your net income.
Pro No connections to your banking accounts or investments
Money Lover is completely independent of your financial institution. This is great for those that are worried about sharing their bank account details but of course this is less convenient.
Pro Elegant interface
Elegant and user-friendly interface.
Pro Supports everyone
Money Lover is completely independent of all financial institution so anyone in any country can use Money Lover.
Con No import
Cannot import data from my previous app. Transitioning to Money Lover became a very time-consuming task.
Con No budget for all wallets
You can't set one budget to all wallets. For example: if you have 9 wallets in your family, then you need to have 9 budgets for food, 9 budgets for clothes and so on.
Con You have to pay for icons
When buying premium, you should get all features. Unfortunately, you still have to pay for icons.
Con No support for credit card accounts
Con Difficult to update debt
There is no guideline for updating debt. Every debt goes to the wallet including Mortgage Bond. When updating the opening balance of (for example) the Mortgage Bond, it appears in the bank balance as part of the total positive balance.
Con Basic app is free but with advertisements
The free version of Money Lover includes small banner advertisements at the bottom of the application. They aren't too intrusive but they can be annoying. Removing the advertisements is a $2.00 in app purchase. Getting the whole Money Lover experience requires an upgrade from the basic application to the premium application without advertisements and the ability to have more than one wallet, a budget plan, and an event plan for a $4.99 in app purchase.
