  • Great app brought my spouse and I together

    We struggled maintaining an envelope system for our family of 6. Quicken was a tool I could use but could not coordinate with my spouse. We now both have Good Budget on our phones and are talking the same language.


  • Crashes

    App continuously crashes.


  • Lacking basic functionality of linking to bank account

    This app has a lot of potential, but it's sadly lacking the most basic of functionality of a budgeting app. How to improve this app: 1) Get the tech to link an account. If you don't have a team who can do this, acquire a rival company that securely links a user's bank account to the app (this should be Priority #1!!!) This isn't 1999, who the F is downloading CVS files? All your competitors are able to link an account. 2) Make your app stand alone. I shouldn't have to do anything on a desktop for the app to work. All functionality should be available on the app. Seriously, how has this not been a top priority? 3) Your app should be smart enough to be able to take transactions from the account you link up and subtract them from these envelopes (and give the user the ability to make the app smarter by being able to fix/reassign transactions to the correct envelopes). You have 1/2 of a great app. Get the tech to make the other half. 50% = F


  • Great app

    Great app. No issues. Is simple but is exactly what I needed.


  • Perfect

    I don't Review a lot. This app is great for the digital couple. My wife and I agree on the budget for the year and then fill the monthly and yearly envelopes. Day to day purchases sync between our two phones (android and apple) seamlessly. No more fighting over who spent what and when. We even keep a slush find envelope that gets filled with the extra money from each month to use as our mad money. Works seamlessly and it is free!


  • Ten envelopes, then be ready to pay

    Not free if you have more than 10 categories you're looking to use, just be forewarned


  • Very Helpful

    This app is not complicated and does have a tremendous amount of features. One thing it does not have is an auto sync with you bank account. However, before thinking that this is a bad thing keep in mind that this forces you to keep using this (balancing your checkbook so to speak). Some of the benefits of this app are easy envelope transfers, split transactions, auto funding, and atypical budgeting. Atypical budgeting? So many other tools out there are based on monthly cycles. Sure, this works for you water bill, mortgage/rent, and cell phone, but, who is paid monthly? We use this to auto-fill all of our envelopes every two weeks when we are paid. This will really force you to only spend what you have. The only issue that I have found is it occasionally will not sync (minus 1 star), but within 30 minutes or so we are back in business.


  • CRASHES

    Will not work at all! Shuts down as soon as I click on it.


  • Great app!

    Helps me and my boyfriend keep track of finances in a simple and effective way! Syncs between our phones, and lets us know -- in a not condescending way -- when we're going over budget, and tells us how long we might want to go before our next purchase. Highly recommend this app!


  • The app works but it requires too much setup time

    It would be great for someone who's extremely organized and willing to document every transaction. But unfortunately that's not me. I wish there were a way to automatically scan the transaction from a receipt.


  • Great but some glitches

    I LOVE the App. But what would make it 5 stars, and what would make a SIGNIFICANT difference in my user experience is having a "status" column in the transactions. Right now I am having to date uncleared transactions as "12/31/17" just so I can keep track of my uncleared items. Then I have to scroll over and over again for each transaction to change the date to the date it posted just so I know which transactions have cleared, also to make sure I didn't forget to log any transactions. BIG PAIN IN THE BUTT! PLEASE PUT A "STATUS" COLUMN ON THE MOBILE APP. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!!!


  • Useful App

    You have to be diligent, but this app allows you an easy avenue to clearly see where (and how fast) your money goes!!!


  • Great app...exactly what i need!!!!

    This app works great. syncs mobile and desktop entries across multiple users in my household. Intuitive and simple to use. My only suggestion is a key missing capability: mobile search for the merchants so I can refer to previous purchases. Available on desktop forever but not on mobile (yet). Please add!!!!!!


  • Good budget app

    I really love this app. Other apps seem convenient because they pull info right from your bank account but I kept getting sync issues or would be changing what category things went to. I love the newer feature that you can schedule monthly transactions. I definitely recommend this app for anyone who really wants to keep track of where their money goes.


  • First budgeting app that's really worked for us

    I always loved the envelope concept but I hardly ever use cash. This system works well in a card-based world. Easy to share with my spouse too.


  • Easy and Simple

    Love how easy it is to track my budget and accounts.


  • Best Budget System I've used

    Best budget system I've used by far.


  • Keeping us on track!

    Before we got this, my wife and I would spend aimlessly and wonder where all the money went. Now we add everything in here and check it before making every purchase. It's definitely worth it to keep you on track financially.


  • Budget app

    I love this app. It's helping me to be more consistent with my spending


  • Awesome tool

    We have really enjoyed using GoodBudget. It has made it so much more convenient to get a hold on our finances!


  • Not for single people, also don't buy the advanced features

    This might be what a married couple needs. However, if you are just a single person wanting to track your checking account and budget yourself, do not try to use this app. The fact that it wants to sync constantly makes it impossible to make little tweaks and clutters everything. Getting it set up is a nightmare. If you change to the pro features you will have another nightmare of a time getting re-set up. Also awful for people with irregular income schedules.


  • Love it!!!

    It was very difficult to manage finances and this makes it extremely easy to manage! My favorite app for finances


  • Crashes just after opening

    I just downloaded the app & set up my account, now every time I open the app it crashes. Is there an update to fix this?


  • Awesome app

    Great app to keep track of your money


  • Love it!

    I love GoodBudget! I've tried quite a few other budgeting apps and none are as comprehensive and easy to use as this one. The only thing I wish they included were sub categories (an envelope within an envelope) to more clearly watch your spending. I hope to see this in an update soon. Other than that, it's great. Thanks, GoodBudget!


  • Excellent for budgets

    I've used this forever a couple of years now and this is an excellent way to keep track of my budget. Easy to use!


  • Gooder

    This application is great for people like me that truly need an option to save transactions and send them to my wife so we know what we are spending. The real down side is setup it's fairly confusing and not super user friendly, but once you get it going it's pretty much smooth spending!


  • Simple and useful

    This app has really helped me get my finances in order. Just knowing and monitoring exactly how much you make and spend per month can make all the difference. It's free and very simple to use. Highly recommend for anyone living paycheck to paycheck.


  • Exactly what I wanted

    This app does exactly what I wanted with budget envelopes for each category. I struggled to find an app that supported bi-monthly payments and budgets, but that's available here! You get 10 envelopes for free and that's sufficient to set up a basic budget. I love that you can sync the budget between two different devices! Being able to manage the account online is a nice bonus


  • Buggy recent version

    We have been using this for over three years and have been really disappointed with the current version. Someone messed up the last update and now the "add money" feature never works as intended. Can never add the correct amount and always gets overridden to the default budget amount no matter which option you select. Very sad panda


  • Terrible user interface.

    I think the right ideas are all in this app, but the implementation is terrible. It's unclear to a new user how to accomplish the simplest tasks, like adding a transaction or refilling an envelope. I entirely believe the functionality is there and can be learned for someone willing to put in the effort. But with the abundance of budgeting apps available on the AppStore, I'm deleting this one and finding one with a simpler interface.


  • Great!

    Use it!


  • too complicated

    hard to use, can't add an income


  • Great app, needs iPad version

    I use this app almost everyday. It is very helpful. I would love for their to be an iPad version of it. The iPhone version works but it could be much better with native iPad support. This is really helpful in managing our families' finances and getting back on track. I would, and have, recommended this app to many people.


  • Great Budget App

    This is a very helpful app to keep all your expenditures in a convenient place. I think it is extremely user friendly and I love that you can see in one screenshot all your budget info!!! Great, great, great!


  • Simple and effective

    Grateful to use the concept of the envelope system without having to carry all the cash!


  • Love It!!

    This app is a little tricky to use at first, but it is so helpful for my style of budget keeping once you figure it out, especially with the account being online as well as in my phone. Use Goodbudget!


  • Envelopes are the key

    Love how it splits your money into envelopes to easily track how much you have left in a each one but also gives you the total left in all of the envelopes. The only downside is you get 10 envelopes for monthly and 10 for annual. Which wasn't bad until I wanted to split my budget into detail. If I want more I'll have to subscribe. But for 10 each it's great as a free app!


  • Great app for the first 30 days...

    ...and then it became unusable. My wife and I created envelopes and entered expenses for the first month. The app synced across devices and we were able to easily track our combined expenses. When the next month started and we were ready to allocate expenses for each envelope based on our income / spending, I spent 2 incredibly frustrating hours trying unsuccessfully to implement what I thought would be the most basic of configurations (enter income, allocate money to individual envelopes, and have the envelopes start fresh at the beginning of each month). I want to throw something.


  • Best budget app we've found

    We used Mint previously and it was hard to upkeep and not customizable to our needs. This app is way more flexible and a great way to manage a budget! We have been more effective at staying on budget and saving money since getting this app!


  • Best budget app

    This app makes it really easy to track and maintain my monthly budgets. I really like that it is not connected to any of my bank accounts


  • Huge Blessing to our family

    We love this app! Hubby and I have been using it for years now and it has helped us pay off a lot of debt by sticking to our budget! It's super simple and easy to use, which means I actually use it. My husband loves that it is *not* connected to our online banking. It has a nice look to it and gives perspective for the whole month. I'll be honest, I particularly enjoy that the happy little envelope stays happy when we're on track and gets sad when the budget is almost empty. It just helps motivate me all the more to make things work within our plan. Genius. :)


  • Easy to use and does what I need it to do

    I like how it breaks your budget into envelopes so you can keep track of how much of your budget you are spending and on what. It's very easy to use too. You can even input where/what business you spent your money on to help you remember.


  • Latest version loses its way

    Prior to the last updates, I was very pleased with this. It was a fast, lean way to assign a job to every dollar. Then they stripped the ability to sweep unassigned cash to an envelope and added things like location (which has to be turned off for every. single. transaction) and scheduling. In short, they stripped out useful features and added bloat. The user forum contains numerous pleas to reinstate the sweep feature and contemptuous and condescending lectures from the company that we should build up unallocated cash. In other words, they have COMPLETELY lost their way when it comes to giving every dollar a job. Very disappointing.


  • Work great easy to use

    Best planning tool for budget I have seen yet.


  • Very Happy

    Great app and even better customer support. There is a learning curve but it's manageable and worth it!


  • Where has it been all my life?

    I have been using other methods of tracking our daily finances over the years, YNAB and excel mostly, but this is by far the best. Allows my wife and I to finally be on the same page financially.


  • The ability to share makes all the difference

    The envelope concept has really helped my wife and I to get on the same page with budgeting. Having the envelopes update in real time on both of our devices allows both of us to know where we stand at all times, and really helps to curb impulse-purchasing. Can't recommend this app enough - I love it!!


  • Love it

    It's fairly easy to use but sometimes I don't understand how it is adding because my figures come out different. It has helped me keep an eye on my budget much better and see where my money goes.


  • Ok

    It's ok I just didn't like that it only gives you 10 envelopes
