“After testing dozens of apps for two months, we recommend Simplifi by Quicken … to both track your transactions and plan your future expenses.”

That’s the official word from The New York Times Wirecutter, and we couldn’t be more proud.

“Most budget apps are either easy to set up but ultimately ineffective … or so complex and dull as to drive away anyone … Simplifi threads the needle.”

We were thrilled to see NYT Wirecutter call that out. We’ve worked hard to thread that needle, making sure Simplifi is easy to use while giving you the control and flexibility you need.

So you can stay on top of your money YOUR way.

“Our favorite feature is the personalized spending plan, which gives you an up-to-the-minute dollar figure showing what you have left to spend for the rest of the month, after accounting for your bills and savings goals.”

We love this feature, too! The easiest way to stay on top of your spending is to pay those monthly bills and put something up for savings first.

Then, Simplifi tells you exactly how much you have left to spend on the fun stuff. Enjoy those little luxuries guilt-free, knowing for sure that you’re not overdoing it.

“Simplifi isn’t free, but it’s less expensive than competitors with comparable features. Plus, having some skin in the game may compel you to stick with it.”

It might not be free, but it’s a pretty great deal. Especially since it comes with dedicated customer support via chat or phone—not to mention new updates and customer-requested features every month.
