Tap the POST-IT note.
You can add a reminder to the envelope. Tap the YELLOW + to add another reminder if you want to.
Enter a 2nd reminder. You can toggle between reminders by tapping the YELLOW ARROWS at the bottom. Tap DONE.
Right now the envelope is empty. Tap DEPOSIT to add some money into the envelope. You will use this a lot.
Type in an amount (You don' t have to type the decimal.)
I entered $40. Tap where it says MEMO to add a memo to the deposit.
Enter the memo then tap DONE.
The memo appears at the bottom. Tap DONE.
Now tap WITHDRAW. You will also use this a lot.

You can view your WITHDRAW and DEPOSIT history by tapping where it says HISTORY. Tap HISTORY.
You will see your WITHDRAW/DEPOSIT history along with a date and any memo you added. Tap where it says EDIT
You can delete all history from this envelope by tapping CLEAR ALL. You can delete individual history items by tapping the RED - and then hitting DELETE. Tap DONE until you get to the MAIN SCREEN.
Scroll to the bottom and tap the SEND icon (The one that looks like a rectangle with an arrow on it).
As of now, the only option is to fill all envelopes with their budgets/allowance. Tap CANCEL if you don't want to do that.
If you want to re-organize your envelopes, tap EDIT on the MAIN SCREEN.
You can DELETE an envelope by tapping the RED + or you can re-arrange envelopes by tapping and dragging the THREE LIINES next to the envelope UP or DOWN. Tap DONE if you don't want to do this.
THIS HAS BEEN A GUIDE ON HOW TO DO ENVELOPE BUDGETING IN IOS. For more info on what the ENVELOPE BUDGETING system is. Go to my website and go to FINANCE > BUDGETING.
note: I also use real envelopes labeled with the same names as in the app to keep track of my budgeting.
