    It is not envelop based, which is the main feature of YNAB, Also no syncing to other devices, and they don't have a mobile application - which is a must for tracking expenses.

    This is an envelope-based budgeting software similar to YNAB. The program is pretty snappy and quick (vs. YNAB's web software that I find runs very slowly on my laptop). It's only 4 USD a month which is much cheaper.

    KMyMoney seems to have many fonctionnalities. But to budget with it is much too complicated. You don't have in a glance the basic balance information to compare your spendings vs your earnings. Same thing to see the distribution of your spendings among categories. I used it for a long time, but I don't regret to be passed to YNAB, even if I have to pay (since I have a return on investment).

    Ledger is a powerful, double-entry accounting system that is accessed from the UNIX command-line. This may put off some users, since there is no flashy UI, but for those who want unparalleled reporting access to their data there are few alternatives.

    Works on exactly the same philosphy. Ready made replacement but much cheaper - even free.
