Awesome app but...
Edit: If that is the case, can you add a button below “delete” that says “end recurring expense” or “end” that just put ends the expense so that users don’t have to set the end date to previous month (that’s the more annoying part). Also, if you want to make magic happen, if I change something about the recurring expense, ask the user if it wants it to apply to all cycles or just this one. Then if user selects just this one you behind the scenes ends the expense in the previous cycle, clone the expense with new start and end dates and boom, problem solved. The last suggestions is better than the first one. Hope you can implement that. Thanks. I use this app everyday. It’s how I manage my money. I just want to ask for a minor change that it was introduced recently. Please, please, let me change and tweak my regular income and recurring expenses per cycle like it was before. Now if I change something, it will affect all my cycles because now the app uses date ranges for everything. I just want to tweak my current cycle. I do not want to need to change the end date so that I can “finish” the recurring expense and create another one with the same name with my new number. It’s just annoying. Let us modify our daily budget per cycle without modifying the before ones. Thanks. Used to love the app but that little change is making everything hard for me.
The app I never knew I needed
This is the budgeting app I never knew I needed! I’m only two weeks in but I’m already impressed. I’m still skeptical because I’ve tried many apps that eventually don’t work out, which is why I’m cautiously giving it a 4 star for now. For some reason, these other apps are overly difficult to keep track of a budget. It just never made sense to me. A budgeting app should make your life easier, not more difficult. With Daily Budget, I like that I can input fixed income, costs, and savings. I also like the ability to see my daily budget and add any (+) or (-) costs. It has a reminder option that I turn on for 9pm that way I can input my costs at the end of the day, if my day was chaotic and busy. I was sick of over-spending and not having a clue of where my money was going. Life is a variable though and this app allows the flexibility to spend money every day, if needed, but spend it more consciously (as you’ll have a set daily budget determined by your fixed incomes, costs, and savings). It’s exactly what I needed. I love that the basic functions are FREE. I also like that you can individually purchase any other functions you might need. I bought the no ads, more categories, and graphs add-ons and I don’t regret one bit. I’ll be back in a few months to update my review and re-rate it.
Awesome budget app
I’m typically pretty good about setting a budget in terms of knowing my monthly bills, but I always had trouble trying to budget for any extra costs, such as eating out or buying something extra. This app is great in that it allows you to set your monthly income and expenses, and then tells you how much extra you have each day based on those factors. It is also very simple to use and has a nice, clean interface. I personally am a very visual person, and being able to have my main page on blue (indicating I didn’t overspend my allowance for that day) gives me a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day. You do have to manually input any extra spending that you do outside of what you pre-set, but again, the simple design of the app makes this very quick and easy to do. The main features of the app are also free, with the option to purchase extras such as graphs and extra icons which show details of where your money is going. This allows you to see if you are maybe spending to much on, say, fast food each month. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially college students like myself who are on a tight budget.
It works. For real.
My MVP app. It’s the only app I’ve ever bothered to write a review for on the App Store. There’s a lot of budget apps out there but this one is unique, simple, and intuitive and designed with real life in mind. It really works to help me understand where money is going, and makes calculations for me to spread my larger expenses across days and see what that costs me per day. This app calculates a daily allowance based on what you tell it. It’s blue if you’re ahead of the game, and orange if you’re behind. Other apps tend to rely on predictable income and expenses. They rely on category-based spending limits that i have to (somehow) estimate and set, and failing to properly categorize each transaction into the appropriate bucket makes the whole system break. This one doesn’t! Expenses, income, and savings can be entered daily, monthly, or over whatever time period is predictable and feels most intuitive, so it could work for all kinds of livelihoods and incomes, whether you’re a single-income salaried earner or a inconsistent /multiple income/tips earner. Categories don’t matter unless you want them to. 10/10 would do it again.
This app transformed the way we spend money
My husband and I have been married for close to a decade and money has always been a stressor. Most budget apps set goals by month by how do you know what you’ll need at the end of each month? The Daily Budget uses the same idea as a service like Mint but it revolutionized our spending and communication to have a DAILY amount we can spend. You roll over unspent money to the next day, you can spread big purchases over a long period of time, it syncs the data between phones, and it’s easy to set the daily amount so you’re saving each month. We’d struggled to save before but over the last year have saved nearly $10k by changing nothing except using this app to keep us on track with our spending. And the best thing is, there’s no guilt about spending the money you have each day - it’ll be replenished tomorrow. It has helped us to have honest communication without the anxiety of possibly running out of money at the end of the month. Get the app. It’s well worth the money to sync it with another phone and the app has worked flawlessly for us.
Life & Marriage Saving
This app has been a game-changer for my wife and I. We were never great about tracking our spending or sticking to a budget, but I knew we needed to be more intentional about how we spent and saved money. There are a ton of other apps out there that sync to your bank and investment accounts but I didn’t want that. I wanted something that was more akin to keeping a food journal; something that was more intentional, transparent and something I could share with my wife. The beauty of this app is it’s simplicity yet it’s also super effective at changing behavior, which has been the biggest surprise. Each of us thinks twice now before spending money on something because we know when we do we not only have to log it in the app but share it with each other. My wife and I now have more fruitful conversations about money since each of us sees how it’s being spent each and every day. No more finger pointing or random accusations - it’s all right there (so long as we’re being honest). I recommend this app to all my friends and am so happy I stumbled upon it.
Best budgeting app
This app is the best budgeting app if you want to actually save money and stick to your budget and the free version is fully functional. While other apps are good for tracking your expenses and telling you how much you’ve spent, none of them actually give you an accurate view of whether you’re over or under budget at any given time. We’d even struggle to figure out where all the money went and even if we did, the money was already gone. This app is really simple and that’s what makes it so functional. You enter your income, fixed expenses, and how much you want to save per month. Taking that into account, it gives you a spending budget per day which carries over into the next day if you don’t use all of it. You manually enter your expenses which keeps you accountable with every purchase. The pro features are great and work well. I contacted their customer service and got a very helpful response back the same day on a Sunday. Super excited about this app and all the money I’m going to save!
Developers are very helpful
This app is absolutely fantastic! As a person who never ever writes reviews I hope this emphasizes how awesome this app is. It really helped me keep track of where my money is going and it’s fun to make adjustments, break down my spending into category’s and reevaluate my spending. The app had some minor bugs so I made a suggestion about the analytics and graphs and the developers made it better! The developers are very fast to respond and fixed my issue quickly! Not only is the app great so are the developers as they are genuinely helpful. I was invited to try the beta which unfortunately did not work out as my device was not compatible. But I think it’s so cool I was invited to try it out. Oh and by the way the issues I had were not even glitches by the app it’s was my own understanding that was incorrect. still the developers were courteous about my problem and sent me simple easy to fallow steps. The app is detailed and complex but simple in all the right ways! WELL DONE!
Best budget app out there
I've tried countless ways to manage my money and in the end I always abandon it because of things becoming tedious. This app solves that problem and actually makes saving money fun! Update: I created a spreadsheet in Excel to mimic this app so I could understand exactly how it works and let me tell you it works perfect! Tip: After you have everything setup... goto Analysis, Overview and look at "Budget Left". This is the amount you have to spend for the rest of the month in order to successfully meet your saving goals. At first I got hung up when seeing negative numbers on the main page. But as long as "Budget Left" is positive, your spending will eventually catch up. Also "Big Spending" is treated as an actual transaction (the amount is just spread out). So once that future date occurs, you don't enter the amount again. These are just two tips I wish I had read in the beginning saving me the need to create the spreadsheet. This app is for life!
I like the app but...
There are a couple things I wish could be changed. One of those things is I’d like to change the breakdown of my recurring expenses into weeks rather than days as I’m not paid daily and it would help me more if I could see how much I need to save every week to pay something like rent. Another key feature I’d love to see implemented is the ability to do savings in both dollar and percentage amounts (for instance if I wanted to put away $500 into savings rather than 25% exactly). I’d also like to have the ability to have multiple portions of my income that I can save the same as my primary savings. Other than that I love this app. I bought premium features an hour into using it. The UI is a little buggy (but I’m using an iPhone 6 so what app isn’t) but it’s simple to use and overall it’s a very pleasant experience. Adding expenses and extra incomes (I’m a carpenter so I take side jobs all the time and this comes in handy to have) is a breeze. Id give it a 5/5 if the few features up above were changed/added. Overall very nicely done.
Very helpful and easy to use.
I have only been using this app for about a week, but I already feel a great sense of security and pleasure knowing how much money I have to spend on myself, how much I am saving, and how much goes to bills. This app is very easy to use. I have already spoken with the developers about this, and their response makes sense to me. I asked them if there was a way to budget for groceries or gasoline, common items that I will guaranteed be purchasing every month but will have a different price every month. I wanted to budget myself an amount of money to use that month, then subtract from that fund every time I made a purchase in that category, allowing me to see how much I spend in that area, and better planning for the next month, AND potentially saving the extra budgeted money. The developers let me know this would make the app just. Bit to complicated, and they did not want to see it in their app. I completely understand them. I will continue to use this app, and I am so glad I finally started caring about this aspect of my life.
The only thing I wish is if this connected to a bank account! But I do understand that manually entering transactions keeps you more mindful about your spending. Also, maybe I’m not using it right, but it doesn’t seem like you can enter transactions or income dated before the current date. I wanted to make the budget as accurate as possible with more data and input prior transactions for the month (since I just downloaded the app) but I don’t know if I’m thinking about it the right way. Should I be entering those past transactions dated for today and just distributing them to the end of the month? Anyway, great resource! I’m using it constantly. Clean, easy to navigate interface. Still learning the method and getting out of the “what’s left in my checking account” habit of spending. Bought it for myself and my wife, we have it set up on a single Dropbox account and it works great. Takes a minute to refresh but works perfectly.
Love it so far
Really enjoy using this app a couple weeks in. Was searching for a budgeting app to help me reach some goals and maintain my accounts. My favorite part was that it doesn’t connect to my actual bank account, so that gave me peace of mind! I just put in my income, my expenses, and what my saving goal is for each week or month! Then it totals it up. Love that I can add extra income since my wife’s job income is always changing and it gives me realistically how much I can spend and still maintain my goal. Also love that the funds roll over, so I can save up for the weekend of I can distribute funds over a week for groceries so it doesn’t just drain 1 day. Great app! Only thing I wish I could add was my salary over the year, instead of inputting it over a week or month. But that isn’t even close to enough of a thing to make me leave the app! Just download it, it will help you out big time!
6 months in: Effective and easy!
Like many others, I've used a ton of budgeting apps but this is the one I've really been able to stick with. I've been using it consistently for six months and while there are a few quirks with the Cycles feature, I haven't experienced any of the other bugs in previous reviews. I love that it's so fast to enter spending. I thought I preferred auto linking apps like Mint, but I struggle with the delay of pending transactions and it was easy to "forget" I spent the money when it just came through automatically. Entering transactions literally takes less than ten seconds but I think it encourages building good budgeting habits because it makes me "feel" my purchases a bit more. If I forget to enter an expense, I can always add it later. I LOVE setting cycles. I do most my spending on the weekend so I start my cycle on Monday and try to build up as much spending as possible by Saturday. Seeing that number grow is encouraging throughout the week and then I can enjoy my weekends, knowing exactly how much I have available. Feature request: Id like a playback of the amount I went over/under for each cycle. If I forget to check Sunday night, I have to add up every by hand. Instead, I would love a report of my aggregate results each cycle, so I can track my progress Thanks for making a great app!
Just what I needed
I downloaded and deleted about 7 other apps before I stumbled upon this one. I was looking for an app that didn’t force me to link any of my accounts (stay away from my money, Russian hackers!) but still kept me honest with regard to my spending. This app allows me to manually enter my monthy income, expenses, and desired amt to save each month and then doles out a daily spending allowance, which ticks downward with every expense you enter. If I’m a good girl and spend less than my daily allotment, the remainer rolls over to the next day, so that at the end of each week I can see if I have remaining money to spend on some kind of “extra” without blowing my predetermined budget. Ok, so it’s basically an excel spreadsheet in the form of a dummy-proof app, but turns out it’s just what I needed! Fancier folks who aren’t afraid of Russian/Chinese hackers may prefer the likes of Mint or Wally, etc.
