Review: Buxfer is a web based budget program that offers powerful aggregation, IOU planning, bill reminders, and a simple to understand interface. They offer a number of mobile tools and a strong import option for transferring data to them from other finance programs.
This product distinguishes itself by offering a unique system to track money owed to you from friends, split bills, and track personal loans.
It’s great for those looking for a product that can be used from multiple devices and requires minimal effort to learn.
It might annoy some users that the product charges for balance projections (a feature that tells you what your back account balance will be in the future based on current spending habits), or to access multiple budgets and bill reminders. Basically, power users will need to pay a small fee to fully use Buxfer.
