Users can install it for free and start organizing their income streams, tracking their expenses and managing their budget, including for goals where they’re pooling in money with other users, in any currency that they need, as well as cryptocurrencies and gas.

Shared Pockets enables users to track and organize their income streams and expenses more efficiently, and even identify ways to cut expenses and save more money.
