I want a super-simple iPhone app that will let me keep track of my discretionary spending.

So I've decided that I want to gamify my life to some extent and I've implemented a little reward system for myself, with some number of reward points equalling $x. I want a small iPhone app that will let me me add amounts of money as I "earn" them and subtract amounts of money as I spend them on various items.
There are a number of bad apps that claim to do this and a number of much-more complicated apps that I am loath to try as it seems that it would just make things messy. Many programs seem to be aimed at allowances for kids and have a lot of chore-tracking parts that are not needed. Does anyone know of an app like this? A web-based program would also be fine. I mean, I could always just set up an Excel spreadsheet if it comes to that, but I'm hoping there's a neat little app with a cool visualization of coins dropping into a piggy bank or something like that.
