It Might Be Time To Start An Apple Watch Category...

That’s right, folks, YNAB now has an Apple Watch app! Introducing the YNAB Apple Watch App!

With just a flick of your wrist, you can check your category balances including category name, balance, and a color indicator for your balance (you know, green = more to spend!, orange = slow down!, red = prepare to reprioritize!)

More awareness! Fewer excuses for overspending! This is just version 1.0—more wristwatch budgeting fun to come—but we are pretty excited about it.

And we want you to be excited too and because nothing spells excitement like Giveaway Contest…. you guessed it; we are doing an Apple Watch Giveaway Contest!
