YNAB 4 (classic) breathes to live a bit longer!

Hey YNABers!
Tami, YNAB Community Manager here. Just wanted to drop a quick note in here to clarify the changes in this update. As most of you know, Dropbox has API changes coming in June that would have rendered YNAB 4 unable to sync. With today's app store update, YNAB Classic (iOS & Android) will now use the new Dropbox API, meaning that it will continue working after the Dropbox changes go live. Woohoo!
Let us know (help@ynab.com) if you have any problems with it, but you shouldn't have to reauthenticate. It should "just work". :-)
Stay tuned for a full-length blog post coming soon for more details.


I was getting worried as I still haven't found anything to replace YNAB4 and Financier still didn't have mobile and scheduled ready... looks like the devs gave it the breath of life.

Wohoo indeed.

Now I regret migrating recklessly away from YNAB4.

If only new users could adopt it.... I have no idea what to recommend at this  point for folks looking for a zero sum budget.

@keyboard Every dollar has a job

$ available to budget - $ assigned to a budget = 0

Zero sum budget is when you categorize or give jobs to every dollar-- you are completely aware of the financial situation. 

It's the picture of money comes in and you have envelopes for the different categories (in the old envelope/physical world) and you put the money into the envelopes until there is zero money left to put into the envelopes.  You can move money between them but you have assigned where each dollar goes for any income that has come in or any money sitting in any of your accounts. 

It's also what Dave Ramsey recommends-- I was nervous at one time about knowing exactly where the money is/was going but now I've found there is a whole lot of new knowledge and freedom with a zero sum budget in action.   You may have an idea in your head of where your money is going but until it is laid out the likelihood of double counting (assigning more than one job for the dollars) is very high.

Both of you were very good in your explanation....... I understood everything you said

I know that there is something special or different that sets Financier apart from the "Other"....... I joined and donated but not really knowing why I did. I was really encouraged by reading the posts and figured out that something is different about Financier but I am embarrassed to say that I do not know what it is !!!!!

Please tell me what it is ?

Thanks
Ron

Its special because it's a simple budgeting tool allowing many of us that loved YNAB4 but hated NYNAB to continue utilising the original YNAB methodology.

Yes, I was surprized to see this, and the relief was palpable. More time for a real replacement to arise. We can only hope.
