What are your thoughts. I’ve been looking to get off YNAB4 for ages. Anyone have some experience with this or other recommendations?

    Looks cool, but if it can’t pull down my bank transactions it’s probably DOA for me personally. I can never seem to stick with maintaining manually entering transactions into any of these budgeting apps/spreadsheets.

    Mint (RIP) got me the closest, but USAA syncing broke every other damn day for some reason and it couldn’t handle reconciling a PayPal transaction and the corresponding bank transactions so all payments I routed through PayPal always ended up being doubled (or in one case tripled lmao)

      I tried it earlier this year and it was nice, but lack of automatic transaction importing was a deal-breaker for me. It’s so tedious to go through all of your various accounts and run exports, especially considering just how shitty most bank/credit/etc UIs are.

      They’ve been off and on working on or talking about Plaid support, which would probably solve all or most of my complaints (so I’m following the GitHub thread to get notifications): https://github.com/actualbudget/actual/issues/898

      I keep my docker container updated and every few months take a peak to see if there are any notable improvements, but not really going to touch it until that feature gets added.

      Is there an alternative to mint you use?

      I’m the same way… I’ve spent hours to make an excel and have gotten apps with manual entry only to end up using it for a week haha.
