  • Frustrating to work with

    By The real SheRa
    At first I really loved Goodbudget. I love the digital envelope system, how easy it is to input expenses, the recurring payments/income feature, etc. More recently I’ve found some of the processes more cumbersome than helpful. When I set a recurring income, including specifying which envelope the money goes into, it resets the envelope at the base amount set rather than adding to what’s already in there. It takes the excess and sweeps it into “Unallocated” rather than keeping it where I very deliberately put it. Then I have to go through the process of figuring out how much was in each envelope before my income hit, and transfer from unallocated into the various envelopes (each transfer happening separately). All in all, this program is pretty good, but only if you’re budgeting and living paycheck to paycheck, especially since it’s free. If you are saving up for something or want to have extra money in a few of your envelopes, this program becomes more of a headache than it’s worth.
  • Great app, but no iPhone X support

    By Wakeuplan
    Goodbudget is an extremely useful app, but it hasn’t been updated for four months, and still lacks iPhone X support (literally the only app I have that doesn’t yet support it). Such a slow update cycle doesn’t bode well for this app, and I’ve begun to look for alternatives.
  • Best budget App

    By bhsnbx
    Hands down the best, most uncomplicated budget app there is! Only been using this app for a few months and already it’s saved me from having overdrafted my Checking acct multiple times. I’ve used spending tracker apps but the budgeting never worked for me. I actually like that they only give me 10 free envelopes, it forces me to keep my categories few and simple, and a lot easier to manage! 👍🏽👍🏽
  • This app ruined my life

    By SKUS09
    Ever since I started using Goodbudget, my shopping has plummeted down to essentials and a small splurge once in a big while, I pretty much eat out only when dining with friends, and now I have all this money left over to build my savings and even make a donation, all because of this stupid app. I don’t even know who I am anymore. The set-up takes some time, but once you get past that, the app makes it easy to manage your budget. I manually enter every purchase or bill, but the benefit of this is that I’m more consciously aware of every time I spend money. Get this app, and ruin your life. Or change it for the better. It all depends on which way you look at it.
  • Financial Must

    By Emankcin Dose
    My wife and i have paid off all our debt and are staying dept free with the help of this app. It truly is amazing. It's as simple or complicated as you like. I don't link my bank accounts and use the free version. My wife is android and I'm iOS. I recommend this app to everyone, everyone i have a conversation about finances. Quite literally.
  • This is not the year 2020

    By shootmealready
    and yet the app sets the year to 2020 and cannot be changed. This means every month you have to manually re-enter your budget - because the app won’t auto refill until 2020. Mind boggling.
  • Optimize!

    By NarcNarwal
    Hey GoodBudget Team, for the money that is being spent on this app by thousands you need to step up your game and optimize the app for the X, add frequently requested features, and actually respond to your ratings. I could optimize this app in less than a day, so please, pay for a developer and get this train moving again.
  • Confusing

    By CMH8
    I wanted to love this app but it makes no sense!!

  • Frustrating

    By Booboifjdjd
    I'm sure this app will be great when I figure out how to use it. It's not very intuitive and the video tutorials are only for the. Computer based version. Not mobile. I think i did something wrong because no matter what I do I get a red bar. I'm guessing I have to wait until the next month for it to reset. If I takes me more than 2 days I'm bailing and trying a different app.
