  • Wish it would compare to income

    By RaiDi11
    I only went through the setup which was pretty easy. It never had me enter my income. So what’s the point if it would let you know what’s left from overall income instead of what’s in the envelops. So I’ve deleted and will look for something complete.
  • Very confusing app

    By Lbrew81
    I can’t figure out how to do anything. I’ll stick to the pennies app.
  • Looks good

    By james7088
    Under the hood is another story. $30 / 6 months for more accounts and envelopes?!? Just wow!!!
  • It helps!

    This Good budget app is awesome. When I got paid, I knew what bills had to be paid. If i had Extra money above my budget like overtime pay or extra work. I knew I could put that money towards debt or savings. Both your spouse and you can manage with the same app and budget. You both know how much to spend on groceries, date night, etc. You only get ten monthly envelopes and 10 yearly envelopes. It was manageable if you put gym membership and car insurance in yearly. Awesome!
  • Very good app!

    Good Budget was kind of confusing to learn at first. Now that I’ve been at it for a couple weeks, I REALLY like it. I was looking for a very simple system that emulated an envelope system that is familiar to a lot of talk radio fans. I never wanted to carry physical envelopes. That seems archaic to me and very inconvenient at times. I also wanted something I could set up to automate my weekly budget allotment deposits into those envelopes. Also important was that it be as close to free as possible. This app did all of that for me. I didn’t want to over complicate the number of envelopes, so I only have four. That makes this completely free for me. Like I said, it wasn’t user friendly to learn and some of the controls of the envelopes aren’t very intuitive, but now that I’ve learned the system, I have automated it to do exactly what I want. I figured it out quickly, but it did take a bit of effort on my part. I’m glad i did. I really like the user interface, too.
  • Needs an update

    By petroSLP
    I have used good budget on Android for two years and I loved it! I recently switched to iPhone and so far I have one major complaint. When I go into an envelope or account, why doesn't it list the running total next to the transaction total? I use that feature to keep track of my expenses and make sure I pay from the correct sources and this app is half as useful to me without the running total listed out. If they fix this one issue I would happily keep paying the premium price and give it five stars for sure!
  • Switched from YNAB

    By carlvjack
    Was looking for a YNAB alternative because I wanted the ability to create a budget using my take home pay for the month. Goodbudget allows me to plan for what I know I will spend and plan for how I am going to use the money I have but also to plan for money I will get later in the month. I like seeing the bar graph fill and the envelope’s expression showing if I am on target for that particular envelope or I am ahead of schedule. Also the website app is clean and not cluttered
  • Could be awesome......

    By JadeNik
    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!)

    By Oceangirl1994
    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?

    By onzie9
    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?
