What Pennies lacks in depth it more than makes up for in minimalism: New entries take mere seconds so you can get back to shopping that much sooner. It's also great on Apple Watch, which can be used to log entries without removing the iPhone from your pocket. One small hitch: You can't tag expense categories from your wrist, which is unfortunate since entries can't be edited, only deleted.
While I like the user interface and color scheme, it's also worth noting Pennies has yet to be optimized for the larger iPhone 6 display. This only really becomes an issue when using the keyboard to enter or edit the budget name, since the built-in numeric keyboard works great otherwise.
Pennies won't help you get rich quick, but it will help keep better track of the money you already have.
