Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Could be awesome......

    This app has great potential! Want to love so bad but why are the calculations so off? And the negative money in the unallocated envelope? Still needs much work..... hope these odd bugs get fix and it continues to improve!

  • Confusing for new user (and I'm 25!)

    Read all about these great reviews but after an hour of messing around I'm so confused on how it works and what it means to fill an envelope vs adding. I'm in my 20s and good with technology but this is waaayyyy too complicated. Guess that's why people like it, I'm sure once you know what's going on you can personalize it. But not worth my energy to figure out..

  • What am I doing?

    I added a bunch of envelopes, and put in my salary information, but now I'm stuck. How do I record an expenditure? Why is there no help file or FAQ in the app?

  • Love it!

    Awesome app!

  • I’ve been looking for this for 10 years!!!

    This app is remarkable to say the least. By far the best budgeting app I’ve ever used. Zero complaints all I have is 100% praise. You cannot beat the return on investment you get from this app.

  • Five stars for five years on Goodbudget!!

    UPDATE: They finally show envelopes and accounts on pending transactions so I can get an overview where my money is coming out of without opening the pending transaction! —— This app has changed my life. I started it when I had two part-time jobs 5 years ago. It has seen me through transitioning to one job and combining finances after getting married. Now my husband and I both use it and we’re always able to get on the same page about our budget just by opening the app. Oh, and the mascot is cute!

  • This app is a confusing mess.

    I keep trying to use this app but it’s a confusing mess. I would have an easier time budgeting my money on excel spreadsheet. It’s not as intuitive as it could be and I can’t recommend it.

  • This works for me!

    I have struggled with spending a lot. This app makes it very easy to see what you’re spending on. Easy to set budgets and to see your spending habits. I am using the $5 subscription because it gives more accounts and envelopes. Love love love!

  • Good app. Refill lacks

    The app has been great for my wife and I to keep in sync. However. Every month I have mess with getting the amounts correct in the envelopes. Part is my ignorance, but this app makes it non intuitive. Other apps are much easier, but you have to use iCloud to sync. Sharing Apple ID’s is a pain.

  • Love it!

    This app has totally changed our life for the better! Helps my family Keep track of finances & stay on budget! Love it!

  • Best Budgeting App!

    We’ve been using GoodBudget for over 5 years! Best digital envelope budgeting app out there!

  • Love Goodbudget!

    Goodbudget is awesome. It's my "on the go" budget app. I love being able to "tell the future" of my account with the pending transactions. No one can go wrong with this app!

  • Extremely confusing

    Don’t download unless you really want to struggle figuring out what you need to do, why you’re doing it, or what an envelope means in this app.

  • Difficult to use

    One of the devices we were using this budgeting app on was set to reset at a different date. When it did the envelopes were refilled and I was unable to retrieve the previous budget. I also do not like how it carries over the budget from the previous month and automatically adds in unspent money. I'd rather start fresh each month but cannot figure out how with this app.

  • A+++

    Simple, awesome and powerful. Exactly what I needed

  • Math is off

    When I add my weekly earnings the app comes up with a monthly total that’s off. Example: $800 weekly and the app says I have a total of $3467 for the month! The app doesn’t give precise numbers and for that reason I will not be using it.

  • Awesome tracking tool!

    I love this budget tool. It's super helpful to help you keep track of day-to-day spending so you can stay with budget for things like gas, Groceries, pocket money, etc.

  • Great functionality cumbersome handling

    App allows to split up money into different envelopes and book expenses against different envelopes. This is easy enough although I would wish to have a more graphical interface where I could swish virtual money around than typing in numbers. What makes handling extremely cumbersome is that moving money requires to choose from different functionality: Non-allocated to envelope and back, envelope to envelope etc. Much too complicated! Make it simple.

  • Negative money??? What?

    So uhhhh yeah... the title speaks for its self.. when I put in an amount it shows up negative, any one else having this problem?

  • Awesome tool

    This app is great! It is helpful for our family to manage both our monthly and annual budgets.

  • Easy to use

    I searched and searched for a simple app that would allow my husband and I to track spending together on a weekly budget. This one fits the bill perfectly and is easy to use. It's really helped us keep track of our budget!

  • Great and useful app

    Have used this app for several years. Easy to use. Great way to track spending. The only addition I would make is to allow the movement of money to/from several different categories in one transaction. This can be done when recording receipts, but not when reallocating money within categories.

  • Monthly charge for more envelopes

    If you want more than 10 envelopes they make you pay a monthly fee. I would be much more likely to pay $1 for each extra envelope. Just sayin.

  • This app has already saved me 1000s of dollars

    I just started my third year using the goodbudget app. I used the free version for a year, by when I have realized that budgeting was saving me upwards of a hundred dollars each month. Simple keeping track of how much money I was spending each month in what categories helped me plan my budget and save money. After a year, I was willing to pay $45 for a year of premium services (measly compared to how much the app helped me save already). The premium service is useful to compare how much I was paying for various categories across the years. Also, keeps me track balances on the ten credit cards I've racked up as well as my checking and savings accounts. Goodbudget is a fantastic way to get financial literacy. Other apps (like Mint) which automatically sync with your accounts don't really work since there are many expenses which I've paid for friends and they pay back later. It is a bit of work, entering each expense manually. But I have at most a handful of expenses each day and it takes just 30 seconds for each expense. Using those 30 seconds to enter an expense is more beneficial than spending those same 30 seconds looking at a cat video on instagram.

  • Great tool

    This is a great app to keep track of your budget.

  • Great App. Tempting to upgrade to paid version.

    This app reminds me of another app that I use, called Expense Keep Pro, except that it does everything that I wanted Expense Keep to do. Syncing to multiple devices, account summaries that feed off of envelopes. Very cool. I can't quite justify upgrading to the paid version for personal budgeting. Wish there was a cheaper option to allow a user to have a few more accounts, maybe a one time payment that would allow for a few more accounts and envelopes. I might even be willing to pay a yearly fee of 10$ or less for up to 5 accounts, and maybe 20 more envelopes. ...Instead I settle for less at the free level... Either way, thanks for the great app!

  • Good Budget

    Not such a good budget when very poor and pay up the ... on medical bills and then I go to try and help myself and come to find out I have to pay for more envelopes!!! And not two or three dollars one time payment..... monthly REALLY for 17 or a yearly rate!!!! I’m so broke can’t afford to help myself right now!! Pathetic!!!

  • Garbage

    Sorry app, but your versatility is awful. Trying to add envelopes with different intervals on the same budget- no dice.

  • 1 star rating since it asked to be rated every single entry

    1 star rating since it asked to be rated every single entry

  • Good

    Works well sharing with spouse. Month end gets a little confusing though

  • Poor

    Inferior app. Clunky. Pushy about reviews.

  • Good app to start balancing a budget

    Good app to start balancing a budget

  • Great Budgeting App

    I’ve been using this app for around a year and it really has helped me save and budget. Mint and other automated apps freak out if you pay 6 months of insurance at once. With envelope savings it takes a little more work up front, but you get a lot more control over your savings. There are a lot of features available for free.

  • Great for 3 years and (ac)counting!

    We've loved Goodbudget in out home for a long time, and it keeps getting better! Can't imagine a better app for following our budget and keeping us on track. 5 stars!

  • Love it!!1!!

    Used it for years. Keeps my wife and I on the same page since we can sync between devices. I like that I can import quicken files from my bank easily to import transactions that I've missed.

  • Simple, Easy budgeting

    Recommended by a friend who used this, GoodBudget is a very easy to use, simple budgeting app. It's basically the envelope system. You setup your salary that you get to fill each envelope to your budgeted amount and then log your charges as you go. This has been great for my wife and I as newlyweds bc we know where our money is going and don't overspend now or have to guess, "have we spent too much eating out this month?"

  • It's very helpful

    I use it a lot

  • Easy to Use

    Goodbudget helps my family stay on the same page. Only took away a start because of incessant requests for review.

  • Life changing

    Now we follow a budget and argue less about finances bc we can track everything and see if we have the budget to buy something or not. Love this app

  • Awesome

    This totally works for our family! We love it! My husband and I both have it on our phones and use it together.

  • App is great, revenue model is not

    This is a very nice, streamlined app. I like how it has clear views of the amount in each envelope and previous transactions. I would like more envelopes, but I don't want a monthly fee. I could pay a one-time app purchase, but I don't want to invest in a system and have a monthly obligation.

  • Excellent

    Very helpful.

  • Best Budget App I've ever used

    Granted, I'm still getting the hang of getting my paycheck to automatically fill envelopes the way I want it to, but the envelope system in this app is awesome. My husband and I share an account so we can both add transactions and they show up in the other person's phone. The envelopes are "smart," too - if you are over budget in one area it will tell you how many days you'd need to stop spending to catch up. The opposite is true for if you're under budget - which helps you know how far ahead you actually are. And, you can transfer money between envelopes...if for instance your "shopping" envelope is under budget but your "restaurants" are over, or whatever. Highly recommend, especially for couples or those on a joint-budget.

  • Forced to rate... awful

    Now u r forced to rate it... can't use it without ... awful

  • The only way of life!

    I have used Goodbudget for close to 4 years. I absolutely love the app and web interface. My wife and sister now use it also.

  • Best envelope budget system for the money

    Looked at all the other envelope based apps and GoodBudet is the easiest to use for the lowest monthly cost for the premium version than al the rest. Would highly recommend.

  • Kdpearcey

    Goodbudget is fantastic to keep me on a budget. My only problem is that when changes need to be made, it's not always easy to figure out. App could be made more user friendly for changes.

  • Great budget tool

    This is a great app for budgeting! My husband and I have it and we are able to see who and what we are spending our money on. It keeps us both on track as we can see what each other is spending and not drain a category within ur talking to the other person.

  • Great app

    I really like this app. Way way easier than trying to use paper envelopes and handle cash. Pay with your credit card like normal, 12 seconds tops to load the transaction to the app and your on your way. I almost gave this app a 4* since the set up was more difficult than I hoped, but I think it is because I added every aspect of our finances including 15+ auto payments. I had to watch a tutorial on how to fill the envelopes each month.

  • Fantastic

    I've been using this app to track my spendings for a year now and it really does help me to stay on track with my budget.
