Thank you for choosing Money Pro and welcome!
Money Pro is a comprehensive personal finance management application with powerful features that are easy to use. Money Pro is the next generation of Money app (over 2 million downloads worldwide).
Money Pro was built with a vision. It is a set of tools for keeping track of accounts, bill planning, and budgeting which all work in unison. At the same time, it is much more than that. Our goal is to give you a means for taking control of your personal finances and, ultimately, your own life as a financially free man.
In this user guide you will learn how to start managing your personal finance with Money Pro on your iOS devices and Mac. The guide is divided into five areas: Accounts, Budgets, Bills, Reports, and More. These areas correspond perfectly to the five tabs of the application.
The first thing you do with the app, you fill in the information for your Balance Sheet (Balance tab). A balance sheet is a type of personal financial statement. It provides an overall snapshot of your wealth at a specific period in time. It is a summary of your Assets (what you own) and your Liabilities (what you owe). Yellow color means debt. Blue color means money.
Assets and Liabilities
Even though you might find more distinct classification of assets, there are two types of assets suggested in this app:
- payment accounts: accounts used for payments such as cash, bank account, debit cards, Internet accounts, etc.;
- other assets: all other assets of great value - house, vehicle, shares, etc.
Liabilities are also divided into two parts:
- credit cards: your credit cards only;
- other liabilities: loans, debts, mortgage, etc.
Credit card accounts show your current debt to the bank. Income transactions assigned to credit card accounts decrease the debt amount.
To add an account, tap/click “Edit” > “Add” and select the account type.
Enter the account details:
- Icon: choose an icon from the list of 1500 icons or add your own image via Icon manager;
- Name: a short name to find it in the list easily;
- Balance: the current value for your asset/liability; for a credit card you should fill out two fields - “Debt” (the amount you presently owe to the bank) and “Limit” (the total limit for this card);
- Currency: for this particular account. Currency of all assigned transactions will correspond to the currency of the account;
- Reconcile: turn on account reconciliation;
- Auto-cleared: new transactions will be marked “cleared” by default;
- Description: a long name and notes to the entry.
When you have finished, tap/click “Save”, then “Done” on the main form.
You can sort the accounts alphabetically or according to your desire. On your iOS device:
- On the Balance screen tap «Edit» in the upper right corner,
- The new appeared screen structures the accounts by classes: Payment Accounts, Credit cards, Other Assets, Other Liabilities.
- There is an icon of three stripes to the right of each account. It can be called an account mobility icon.
- Tap and drag the three stripes icon of the needed account to the right place in the list of your accounts.
- Repeat this operation with other accounts as well. Please note that you can change the order of the accounts only within a particular class (Payment Accounts, Credit Cards, etc.).
Once you make the right order on your iOS device you’ll be able to transfer it to the Mac version by syncing.
Online-Banking allows connecting Money Pro to your bank to sync your transactions which will significantly reduce your manual entries.
Open the Balance tab, tap/click “Edit” > “Add” > “Online Banking”. The app will offer you to register a Money Pro Account (if you haven’t done so yet) and activate Money Pro GOLD subscription which provides Online-Banking service. If you want to connect Online-Banking to an account that already exists in the app tap/click “Edit”, select the account and tap/click “Connect Bank Account”.
Are your banks on the list of the supported banks in Money Pro? Most probably, yes. Before you buy Money Pro Gold subscription please tap/click “Check if your bank is supported” in the subscription window. You can also contact our support team.
You will be asked to enter authorization data you use in the Bank’s Dashboard. When connected Money Pro will display all the payment accounts, credit cards and savings accounts you have in the bank. Once you add them they will appear in the Balance tab. Along with the accounts Money Pro will download all the transactions for the last 3 months. The last transactions for a specific time period (depending on each bank individually) may be downloaded with a delay.
Money Pro will automatically categorize the downloaded transactions. However it might be impossible for some of the transactions due to the lack of information from the bank. Once you open the Balance tab tap/click the synced account to look through the transactions list. Uncategorized transactions will be marked with a question mark. Tap/click it and select a category. In future Money Pro will predict categories more accurately based on your previous actions.
OFX, CSV import
You can download your bank statement from your bank’s website (supported files: .ofx and .csv). Use iTunes to upload files on iPhone and iPad:
- connect the device to iTunes;
- access the Apps tab under the File Sharing section;
- drag and drop files onto the Documents list;
- the files will become available for import.
Tap/click “Import icon”, select the account the information will be imported to and select the file you want to import.
In the opened form select appropriate categories for the transactions (if needed). Money Pro learns how you categorize transactions and predicts categories for the transactions being imported. Only “New” transactions will be imported. Previously imported transactions will remain untouched.
When importing .csv file you should specify the type of the information for each column individually in case the app hasn’t determined it automatically. You can learn more details about the csv import from the following article.
You can record transactions and clear them later on. Available balance and cleared balance are calculated automatically. You can use account reconciliation for any of your accounts. Go to the Balance tab, tap/click “Edit”, select the account you need and turn on “Reconcile”.
In order to reconcile your accounts balances with a bank statement, compare the transactions list (Balance/Account name) to those on the printed statement from your financial institution. When a transaction matches, use a context menu to mark it “Cleared”. For iPhone and iPad use a left swipe to mark a transaction, or you can put a checkmark in the field “Cleared” when adding or editing a transaction (in the main transaction form, see “Bills & transactions”).
Adjusting account balance
In case you haven’t entered the transactions for a while and for some reason you don’t want to input the skipped information, you can adjust your account balance.
When in the Balance section tap/click “Edit”, then select the needed account. Enter the correct amount and tap/click “Save”. In the list of transactions for this account you will find a new entry “Balance adjustment”.
Deleting an account
To delete an account, go to “Balance”, tap/click “Edit”, then select an account and in the opened menu choose “Delete”. You will be offered to “Hide” or “Delete” the account.
Money Pro can handle all your budgeting needs. Budget is one of the main tools to get your expenses under control so that to save extra money for a big planned purchase in the future, to get out of debt or accumulate wealth.
To make this tool efficient, you should first think out the structure of your budget. Think of all possible spending categories you can put all your expenses into. Mind that categories may have double hierarchical structure in the app. So there are categories and subcategories. Remember, once you’ve set up a budget, you should use the same categories while recording your expenses.
If you want both to remove transactions and keep all the categories unchanged, you can delete your accounts. In this case the accounts’ transactions will be removed automatically while all the categories will remain unchanged.
Please be aware that it is only possible to delete a category with reassigning its transactions to another category.
Setting up a budget
Go to the Budget section to create a budget. You can set up multiple budgets (one per each category/subcategory). The budget limit for the category which has subcategories is calculated automatically as a sum of budget limits for the subcategories. Similarly, Expenses budget is calculated automatically as a sum of individual expense budgets. The same way works for Income budget. Total is calculated as the difference between Income and Expenses.
Tap/click “Edit” and set budget figures for your income categories: salary, business income, dividends, etc.
Then set budget figures for your expenses: utilities, dining, fuel, groceries, childcare, mortgage, etc.
You can set up your budget using the preset categories or add new categories by pressing “+” at the end of the list.
When the category is selected, fill in the rest of the fields for the budget entry:
- Periodicity (“Monthly” by default): The periodicity is set up specially for this budget entry. You can set your budget to repeat “Every Day”, “Every Week”, “Every 2 Weeks”, “Every Month”, “Every Year”, etc.
- Amount: The maximum amount you are willing to spend on this category (on this budget).
- Begin date and end date: If the end date is empty or far enough to include several periods, this budget entry becomes recurring and will be automatically generated with the selected periodicity.
- Currency: You can use different currencies for your budget entries.
- Rollover: This option transfers the leftover of the current period to the next budget period.
Tap/click “Save” and set up other budget entries similarly.
Tracking a budget (Budget widget)
The widget at the top of the screen shows the budget progress over time.
Right above the bars you can see a time filter which displays the period that is selected. Use the filter to change the periodicity (day, week, month, etc). To navigate between the periods, tap/click the bars.
The bars can be either blue or yellow. For better understanding the chart, imagine that the blue and the yellow bars are separated by the horizontal axis. So, the blue bars are above the horizontal axis and have positive values, the yellow bars are below the horizontal axis and have negative values.
Blue bars show that your income exceeds your expenses in the certain period (f.e. in that month). In other words blue bars indicate your gain. Yellow bars, on the contrary, testify that you spent more money than you made. Yellow bars indicate your loss.
The semitransparent white line shows what gain (income minus expenses) you planned to receive for each time period. It helps better understand your spending behavior. It shows whether you acted according to your budget plan or strayed away from it.
The number in the upper left corner reflects the biggest bar. In other words it is the biggest amount of money gained in one of the periods in the chosen periodicity.
Right below the widget you can see your categories with individual budget progress indicators. The categories are displayed only if they have budget limits set or have actual transactions for the period selected.
For each category you can see:
- Actual amount spent (yellow) or earned (blue).
- Amount you planned to spend or earn in the budget (semitransparent white).
Tap/click the category you want to analyze and examine a budget trend chart generated for that category. If the category has subcategories, you will see them listed below.
Deleting a budget
In order to delete a budget entry, go to Budget, select the budget category you need and select a budget period from the list. In the opened form choose “Delete” > “Delete all future budgets”. Even if you delete the budget, the category may still be displayed on the screen due to actual spendings on this category. Basically it means that you have budget limit set as zero.
Alternatively, you can delete the category itself. Go to Budget, select “Edit” and tap/click the cross button in the upper corner of the category.
By simply taking a look at the Today section you will instantly know how many due & overdue transactions you have. Different colors contain information:
- Orange color is used for overdue transactions.
- White color is used for planned (scheduled) transactions.
- Green color is used for actual (paid) transactions.
Money Pro can predict the transactions which might be repeated by you on a certain day. These transactions are listed under Repeat transactions on the Today tab. Use them for quick entry and as a friendly reminder of something you might have forgotten to schedule manually.
If you tap the date in the upper left corner of the iPhone screen, a calendar view will appear. Use swipe gesture to change months on the iOS devices. Below the calendar you will see the list of the transactions for the chosen period (or the whole month).
A big calendar view is presented with all your payments marked as dots. Scroll up and down (or left and right for iPhone) to change months. The list shows your transactions for the whole month or for the selected day if you select a specific date. If you choose the current day, you will see all your overdue and upcoming bills. It works similarly as Today view in iPhone.
There will be also a search icon for searching a particular transaction. To search a certain transaction, use any parameter: amount, check #, agent, description notes, etc.
If you want to view transactions for a certain account, choose this account while in the Balance section.
To see all the expenses/incomes for a particular budget, go to the Budget section, select a certain period and choose the needed budget. In the opened form tap/click “Show transaction list” in the bottom.
Transaction types: income, expense, money transfer and others
Transactions are your actual or scheduled (planned) financial operations. There are three basic types of transactions:
- Income transaction. When you receive money from someone else as a paycheck, profit share, dividends, gifts, etc.
- Expense transaction. When you pay to someone else in exchange for a purchase or services.
- Money transfer transaction. When your money goes from one of your app’s accounts to another. F.e. you take a certain amount from your checking account to use it as cash.
However, in the More section you will find a few additional types of transactions as well:
- Asset purchase. When you buy a new asset and add it to your list of Other assets in the Balance section.
- Asset sale. When you sell an asset and delete it from your list of Other assets in the Balance section.
- Liability acquisition. When you take a loan and add it to the list of your Liabilities in the Balance section.
- Discharge of liability. When you pay off your loan or close your credit card.
Creating a transaction
Go to the Today section, tap/click “+” in the upper right corner.
The default transaction type is “expense”. Change the transaction type if needed. The chosen type will influence the other fields on the form. Fill in the required fields for each particular case.
- Category: assigning a category for the expense should be easy if your budget structure is well thought.
- Account: the account you paid for this purchase from.
- Amount: a specific amount in the used account’s currency.
- Date: along with the date you can enter the exact time of the purchase. If you set a future date when creating a new transaction, the transaction will become “Planned” automatically (learn more below).
- Cleared: you can reconcile this transaction. (This option is available for paid transactions if account reconciliation is turned on for the selected account)
- Additional information (optional): description, photo attachments, check #, agent (payee), class of the transaction (business, personal or any other custom class).
- Category: an appropriate category for the income.
- Account: the account, which will receive the income money.
- Amount: a specific amount in the selected account’s currency.
- Date: along with the date you can enter the exact time of the transaction.
- Cleared: you can reconcile this transaction.
- Additional information (optional): description, photo attachments, check #, agent (payee), class of the transaction (business, personal or any other custom class).
Money transfer transaction:
- Account: the account you are transferring money from.
- Account (to): the account you are transferring money to.
- Amount: the amount you transfer from the first account. It should be entered in the currency of the first account.
- Amount received: the amount received by the account you are transferring money to. It will be filled out automatically even if the two accounts have different currencies (see “Currency converter”). But if the received amount differs from the one you transfer, correct it manually.
- Date: along with the date you can enter the exact time of the transfer.
- Additional information (optional): description, photo attachments, check #, agent (payee), class of the transaction (business, personal or any other custom class).
Asset purchase is essentially an expense paid for some asset you would like to list in your balance sheet. All the fields are similar to what you have for an expense transaction. Two additional fields are:
- Asset: you need to add a new asset to the existing list of assets. To do that, tap/click “Edit” in the upper right corner, then tap/click “Add”. Fill in the asset parameters. Save the changes and tap/click “Done”. After that select the newly added asset from the appeared list.
- Increase balance: if you turn it on, then the asset’s balance will be increased on the amount of the transaction. This option may be helpful when you want to pay for your purchase in several installments. This way the value of your asset will increase after each of your transactions.
Asset sale is similar to an income transaction. Two additional fields are:
- Asset: the asset you sell. Select it from the list of the assets and it will be erased.
- Partial sale: you may sell the asset at once or to decrease its value on the transaction amount.
Liability acquisition is also similar to an income transaction since you receive money. Two additional fields are:
- Liability: you need to add a new liability to the existing list. To do that, tap/click “Edit”, then “Add”. Fill in the liability parameters. Save the changes and tap/click “Done”. After that select the newly added liability from the appeared list.
- Increase Liability Balance: the balance of the liability will be increased on the amount of the transaction.
Discharge of liability is almost like an expense. The only difference is that it decreases the balance of a liability. Additional fields are:
- Liability: select the liability from the list of your liabilities.
- Interest: how much interest will be deducted from your account without discharging the liability.
- Principal: it will be deducted from both your account and your liability.
- Extra payment: the amount you pay for discharging your liability in advance. It will also be deducted from both your account and your liability.
When you finish the transaction details, tap/click “Save” and a new transaction will be created.
When your transaction includes Assets/Liabilities you may specify the category. In this case the transaction will be taken into account when summing up your budget and making all the reports including the “Income/Expenses” report. Otherwise, it will not be counted in your budget and will not be reflected in the “Income/Expenses“ report. However, all the other reports (“Cash Flow“, “Projected balance“, “Transactions“, “Net Worth“, “Assets/Liabilities“) will include the information about this transaction.
Deleting a transaction
You can delete any transaction by pressing “Delete” in the bottom of the editing form (the form with transaction details). You can open the editing form by choosing the transaction while working in any of the sections: Transactions, Balance, Budget.
When you enter an amount while creating transactions or planning your budget, you can use the built-in currency converter. The converter helps to operate with different currencies. Tap the currency button and select the currency you would like to convert from. Then enter the amount in the selected currency. The amount will be converted automatically to the currency of the account selected for the transaction.
If you transfer money from an account with one currency to an account with another currency, just enter the transferred amount from the first account into the field “Amount”. The field “Amount received” (for the second account) will be calculated automatically in corresponding currency.
The budget and all the reports are displayed in the default currency. To change the default currency on iOS devices go to the tab More > Currency and select the currency you need, for Mac version open the Main Menu > Edit > Currency.
Additionally, you can tap/click “i” button to correct the exchange rate and make it favorite.
Planned and recurring bills
Recurring transactions are planned expenses and incomes that happen with a certain periodicity on a regular basis.
Contrary to actual transactions, planned transactions do not influence the balance of your accounts and you can schedule a transaction for any day in advance.
Once you set it up, it will be generated automatically on a regular basis. It helps in case you have regular payments with the same amount of money (rent, mortgage, insurance and etc.).
To create a planned transaction, go to the Today section and tap/click “+” in the upper right corner. Change the transaction type to “Planned” (tap/click the icon near the date) and fill in the transaction details:
- Automatic: the transaction will become paid automatically on the specified date and time. If it is off, you will have to pay the transaction manually.
- Repeat: the period you enter will determine the frequency with which the transaction will be repeated. It can be “Every Day”, “Every Week”, “Every 2 Weeks”, “Every Month”, “Every Year”, etc. You can also set up the “End date”, after which the transactions will stop being generated. If you need a one-time transaction, set Repeat to “Never”.
The rest of the fields fill out like for regular transactions described above.
To make a transaction paid on iOS devices, swipe it to the left and tap/click a green checkmark icon, for Mac select “Mark as Paid” in the context menu. The date of the transaction will change the color into green. In order to reschedule a planned transaction use a white clock icon instead. You can copy or delete the transaction using the same swipe menu.
If you made a mistake, open the transaction details form and tap/click the green checkmark icon again to make the entry planned again.
Money Pro widget lets you mark scheduled transactions as paid or reschedule them in Notification Center (the pull down menu) without having to launch the app. Besides, starting from iOS 10 (macOS Sierra) the widget allows to add a new transaction quickly. The categories shown in the widget are picked as the most often used categories. Select a particular category by tapping it, then choose an account and enter an amount.
To activate the widget, pull down the Notification Center, tap/click “Edit” and add “Money Pro”.
*The widget is available for macOS Catalina and older.

Moreover, every time you turn on your device, on the app’s icon you’ll find the number of the planned transactions that are overdue. The number on the icon will not disappear until you mark the bills paid.
When you receive a notification about your planned transaction, please be aware that you have an ability to pay/delay/delete this transaction without launching the app. To do either of these operations, open the notification’s details list (using swipe or force touch) and press the button you need.
