★ "...this app is a dream come true for someone looking for a quick and easy way to keep track of their daily income/expenses! " -

★ Featured in Macworld!

The most unique personal finance app on iOS.

PaperFinance is a personal finance app intended to provide every feature needed in an expense and income tracker, without the overcomplexity and lifelessness found in most money apps. Easily input and track your expenses, income, accounts, categories, and budgets, without getting bogged down in bloat.

What makes PaperFinance different?
★ It is the only finance app to have a full swipe interface.
★ It strives to make finance-tracking as easy and intuitive as possible!
★ It continuously improves and innovates. The functionality of the app has nearly tripled since its original release, and we're only on the third update!
★ It innovates and dares to think differently. PaperFinance has many features that no other app has, such as PDF export.
★ We listen! We have responded to every user feedback ever submitted, and about 50% of all feature requests have made it into the app within two months.
