  • First time budget. Life changed.

    By Thughee
    This app is awesome. This is the first time I’ve done a zero based budget and using the envelope system makes keeping track a dream. It takes discipline and diligence at first but once set up keeping track comes naturally. Make sure to watch the instruction videos. Very helpful.
  • Easy and effective

    By Geoff Woods
    Love how easy and intuitive this app is to use. My wife and I have our weekly budget, and this allows us to track our spending and see how much is left for the week.
  • Like the concept but glitchy

    By Ally_DA
    The concept is good for tracking expenses against a budget and your available income but all the steps could be simplified. It’s also glitchy. I try to fill my envelopes and it won’t save it so my envelopes are in the red. Disappointed.
  • Can’t figure this app out

    By Denarcy3
    Tried repeatedly to figure this out! Doesn’t allow me to add money to the different categories!!!!!
  • Everything I Could Want in a Budgeting App

    By jennaaxbeann15
    I absolutely LOVE this app. It’s the best out of all the personal finance apps I have tried. It is intuitive once you get in the habit of entering transactions. It’s also extremely rewarding to see myself save more than I ever thought possible, just by being conscious of my spending. Thank you for this wonderful app, Goodbudget! (I also love the website too, I use it almost every day.)
  • Great app!

    By Live to a budget
    We use the full version to be supportive... so nice they offer the free version, but we use this so much that the full version saves us more than the cost of having it. We have been using Good Budget for several years now... and it is a major part of our budget process. Every transaction gets entered immediately, and under notes I record how it was paid (cash, credit, gift card, even which credit card!) We have helped others start budgeting and Goodbudget is our first recommendation! This year we shifted enough funds to pay cash for our air conditioner replacement! Thank you Good Budget!!!
  • So far so good

    By Vivntgyhpldxbj
    Pretty good app, I like the visual components. I wish you could transfer money from one envelope to another if you have an unexpected expense.
  • Great concept with room for improvement

    By erinkaywebster
    I love the idea of this app. It’s got exactly the right amount of detail & tracking for what we need. I find that a lot of budgeting apps include way too much detail so that they become cumbersome to set up & then use, or they are too simplistic & don’t allow enough information to be all that helpful. Goodbudget is easy to get set up & simple to can input income & set categorical monthly budgets (i.e. petrol, groceries, entertainment, etc) & then tracking our spending. I appreciate the details you can include in each transaction (vendor name, date, notes, splitting transactions between different categories) & I like that I can look back over the month & see the individual transactions & that they automatically sort by date of transaction. I do find a few problems/lacking features I’d love to see included, especially to merit a paid subscription. Firstly, I find managing the household (changing envelope amounts, adding new envelopes, deleting an envelope) to be difficult, both online & within the app. It’s not set up in a very intuitive way. Second, i think it would be useful to have an option to add a photo of the receipt to a transaction. And finally, as someone who travels internationally often, it would be nice to have a currency converter within the app so I can input a transaction in a foreign currency & have it convert to USD.
  • Stick with it

    By D.D.Mair
    If you stick with this app, and use it religiously you will save money. I saved $6k in 6months using this app. It’s takes a little bit of time to set up and figure out your automatic income but as soon as you have set it up it’s super easy to enter your purchases throughout the day. Just open the app as you approach the register, pick your envelope and enter the store name as you wait in line, then as soon as you get your total, enter the amount and hit save. It takes ten seconds to do. I also love that I don’t have to link the app with my actual bank account or credit card.
  • Missing one element!

    By SouljaBoys_babe.!!
    I love love this app, but I wish I had the option to sync my bank accounts. Also, the interface seems a little outdated. For me, the task of inserting every transaction is a good way to have conscience spending, but my fast paced life just doesn’t keep up. Having it automatically show my accounts would make this app 5 stars for-sure.
