iPhone budget reminder

A lot of my spend is through apps like Amazon, Deliveroo, Tesco.

I was shocked when Snoop showed me how much I spent over the last 12 months we these merchants.

I thought it would be useful to remind me about my budget before using these apps, so I created a simple shortcut. (A shortcut is an automation). Also useful for my elderly mum who often forgets about budgeting.

The shortcut will remind you about checking snoop when you open an app like Amazon. It only remind you once an hour as to not get annoying.

Feel free to use it - hope it helps you as it did me.
