Introducing the New Ace Budget 3 App
If you like this app, then please support us by upgrading to the NEW Ace Budget 3 app and get great new features. Transferring your data to the new app is really easy - just go to the Settings screen from the current app (latest version) and tap on the 'Transfer Data to New App' option.

Ace Budget 3 includes the following new features:

* Touch ID Login
The new Touch ID login screen will allow you to authenticate and launch the Ace Budget 3 app much quicker and more conveniently.  You will need to go to the Settings screen and use the Passcode Lock option to enable Touch ID for the app.

* Backup/Restore with Dropbox
With integration to the popular Dropbox service, backing up and restoring your data is much easier.  You can signup for a FREE Dropbox account if you don’t already have one.

* Optimize for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
The app takes advantage of the larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus’s screens to display an extra row of data on table view screens.

* Automatic Syncing of Recurring Transactions
New transactions created via the Recurring feature will now sync automatically when iCloud Sync is enabled.  For new recurring transactions, you no longer need to manual sync across devices. 

* Ability to Post Now for Recurring Transaction
Recurring transactions can now be posted before the scheduled date arrives (by touching on the icon of the recurring transaction).

* Ability to Edit Auto-complete Payee Selection List
You can now edit the auto complete list directly from the transaction entry screen to prevent obsoleted payees from showing.  Just tap on the 'Edit' button next to the payee entry field and tap on the '-' button to exclude the payee you no longer need.

* Linking of Related Transfers
Related transfer transactions are now linked between the source and destination budgets so that editing from one will be reflected in the other.  This features applies to new transfers created with Ace Budget 3.  For prior transfers, you will still need to update at both source and destination.

* Memo Field on Transfer Screen
Based on your requests, we have also added a memo field to the transfer screen.

* Higher Resolution Photo Receipts
Photo receipts on iPhones now have more pixels for improved image quality.

* More Budget Icons
Fourteen new icons have been added to provide more choices for customizing your budget categories.

* Additional Themes
Three new themes (gold, pink, & purple) added to provide additional choices for personalization.  Also, improvements were made to existing themes to better match new modern iOS style.

* New Look for Calculator 
The look of built-in calculator has been changed to better match newer, more modern iOS 8 style.
Our verdict: Meh!
  • Ace Budget 2 is a poorly rated app (1.5-star).
