  • Great App but challenging to learn

    By puzzelishous
    Worth the effort figuring it out. Love it and it is really helping me stay in budget. Be sure and go through the videos first. Wish they had more training tools though.
  • Thank you

    By apurikaj
    This app helped me get my financial house in order and I could not be more grateful. I am proud to go from a -4,000 net worth to +70,000 in under 2 years 😁
  • The best envelope budgeting app...worth every penny!!

    By jlife2020
    Improvements 1) Make “add Income” an option in translations. 2) iPad app!!!!! 3) better implementation of “credit” than making it a negative. 4) redesign in future? Layout is getting stale. 5) PDF reports. 6) emails to coach based on users data.
  • Amazing for a free app!

    By leversull
    I installed this because I was spending way too careless and I figured they would push their paid version and limit any of the useful features. This is not the case the app is completely usable and very helpful in terms of budgeting expenses, segmenting spending, and monitoring where all your money goes. It’s also good in the sense that it forces you enter every expense you have, making you think twice about spending that money. Love the app.
  • Need feedback please

    By MyDK
    What is the difference or what does this provide that the mint app does not?
  • Dumb

    By pissedoffuser0123
    I enjoyed this app at first until I realized that you only get 10 free envelopes for your expenses. Any after that you have to pay for a membership. I wish I only had 10 monthly bills!! I’d be living! Ridiculous scheme.
  • I like it

    By Shyanne's mommy
    So far I really like this app it seems to be the easiest one to use I’ve tried a couple trying to find the right one for my family’s budget and this one is the most user-friendly
  • Exactly what I wanted!

    By Suskie2
    The envelope system really works for me, so Goodbudget is exactly what I was looking for. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to view. I personally prefer the manual helps me think more about what I’m spending.
  • Budgeting is finally fun—LOVE THIS APP

    By Bored Redhead
    We’ve been married for over 25 years. We’re financially comfortable, so a budget always seemed like just “a good idea” but never a priority. Now with a daughter in college abroad, we’re trying to better analyze our spending to help avoid overuse of student loans. This has been wonderful! And the KEY to making it work has been NOT to micro-manage the money. (It’s what we did wrong every other time) Making my own categories means I can have one place for “monthly fixed expenses” that includes everything from recurring political and charitable donations to our mortgage. I’m now budgeting in only about ten categories and it’s perfect. The app’s haptic control to quickly add a transaction is great. The status bars are an easy way to judge discretionary spending. The splits are simple and easy to use. I did have to fiddle with the envelope fills the very first time, but it was quickly remedied. Now, if I could just merge it with something like Mint so all my digital transactions (we very rarely use cash) came to an Inbox for distribution/matching it would be even easier to use and 100% perfect. I love this app though, and it’s already saved us quite a bit of money just by letting us know where we stand. A tip: set alerts on all your digital accounts (credit cards, debit, etc.) to text you for every transaction. This makes it easy to assure everything except cash is reflected timely in your GoodBudget records. Love this app!
  • Awesome App

    By Ham Mer
    My wife and I struggled for years seeking the best way to communicate our budget. I manage the accounts, she does most of the spending. We don’t like cash because so much is spent online, and cards are just more convenient. Without cash, the envelope system was not an option. Our budgeting turned into me accounting where the money was already spent each month. Your app changes all that. Thank you so much! The only reason I don’t close my excel sheet permanently is that your system doesn’t seem to have future projections. It would be awesome if I could track future income and expenses in here, to see that my account balances will not dip too low in the coming 12 months. Add that feature and I will insist that all my friends and family start using Goodbudget. I’d love to have a direct email to communicate other feedback and recommendations as they arise. I love budgeting and would be glad to know you are interested in ideas to keep developing and improving what you offer. UPDATE: Since I don’t know where else to share my ideas. I just reviewed my excel sheet and found these additional features which may not translate over to Goodbudget yet. 1. Calculate goals for charitable giving to multiple organizations, as a percent of gross income 2. Compare actual giving to goal percents in order to make any needed adjustments in actual giving. *Points 1 and 2 could be applied to savings in the same way. 3. Track gross income and paycheck withholdings 4. Allow a better catch-all for bills and income which do not need envelopes. Currently I cannot move funds from an envelope to unallocated. I had to create an envelope for that purpose, which complicates some of the sweep and schedule features. 5. Group envelopes together for subtotals other than the current monthly or annual distinction 6. Ability to budget for expenses that don’t need an envelope, like income, and bills with due dates. 7. Ability to compare budget projections to actual spending history 8. Ability to see budget projections for coming 12 months, as I mentioned above, including ALL anticipated income and expenses 9. Display future account balances based on those projections, at least on a month end basis, if not daily, to avoid overdraft. Maybe give two projections, with or without the envelope money, to give sort of a high and low water mark. 10. This is redundant to a couple previous points, but distinguish between bills that have due dates, and envelopes which are spent over a month or year. I guess you’d have to distinguish between monthly bills and less frequent or irregular bills that may still require an envelope. 11. Allow positive and negative entries everywhere. They are always possible on the browser version, but sometimes negative entries can’t be entered in the app. There is sometimes a “credit/expense” field, but I know I’ve seen places where even this option does not appear in the app. Thanks
