Osaifu Saver uses a stylus for inputting every financial transaction you make, and assigns it to categories (utilities, food, love life, etc) to fit within a budget that you sent at the beginning. The action moves according to your own preferences: Stay within your budget and good things happen, but go over and be prepared for the worse!
