I'm looking for a free or a one time paid income and expense tracker android app, not subscription based and not expensive

I tried vMoneyTracker, it's a bit confusing and 1Money, I didn't understand how to use it at all. Requirements

  • Ability to add multiple income
  • Ability to change transaction currency, not all my expenses are in USD
  • Ability to add categories
  • Ability to tell the app that I transferred some money to my bank account, so that it can tell me what do I have in cash and what is in my bank account
  • I do physiotherapy for example, the app should be able to tell me how many physiotherapy sessions I did in a given month and what I spent on it
  • Ability to backup to the cloud or sync automatically
  • Ability to have a reacquiring expense and income and notification
  • Have templates, for example the physiotherapy can be added as an expense template
  • Have a simple UI

    Not that I know a fitting recommendation; but while waiting for some, be welcome to take a look at my corresponding app listing: Budget Planer – and, when found a matching app, please answer your own question :)

    @Izzy How much effort have you put into compiling this enormous list? Are you able to make some money out of it or just for fun? Because it has so many items, surprised that a one man can actually do that

  • I didn't count the years (started that in a forum originally, then moved to my own site with my own "CMS" so the items at least auto-update). And no, I don't get paid for that – though donations are welcome (see the "support us" link), as well as suggestions on missing apps/sections (gitlab.com/IzzyOnDroid/applists). And yes, about 14k apps listed – I manually add them and the links to reviews etc. All else (like the mod warnings, fetching ratings, updating versions) is done automatically by my framework – which I continually improve upon. As I do on my F-Droid repo :)

  • @Izzy how can you manually add 14k apps for a side project?

  • @Lynob it has been a long time since the last time I use Money Lover, but I have a good experience with it. I think it satisfies you

I've stayed with vMoneyTracker free version, yes it's a bit confusing and bloated but it has all the features I want, and I already set it up last week before discovering it's bloated so I might just stick with it.

But the real reason I'll still be using it is because they have a blazing fast support, the chat wasn't working, I emailed support, he fixed it, released an update and email me in less than 5 minutes, plus they have a built in chat system within the app, anything I find confusing, I could just chat with the support from within the app, here's a screenshot.

In short, I don't like the app that much, but I love the support.
