Each shimmering jewel corresponds to an area of spending within your finances. Tap on any gem to highlight the category of spending, and drag it over to the bucket to bring up the data spending entry screen.
Spending Data Entry Screen
After dropping the jewel into the bucket, the data entry screen will appear. For whichever category you’ve selected, tap the box next to the dollar sign ($) to bring up the money wheel, which you will use to enter a dollar amount for that particular category.
Number Picker
When the money wheel appears, spin it to select the dollar amount that you would like to enter for that category. When the correct amount on the wheel is highlighted, tap the “ok” button at the bottom of the screen. After the wheel disappears, choose “weekly” or “monthly” by tapping the corresponding buttons and then tap the square “ok” button at the right to finalize the entry. Continue dropping gems in the bucket until you are finished.
