Beyond spectacular! - This app is so fantastic- as with many other reviewers, I've tried other budgeting apps like Mint. But this is the only app that actually works. It incentives me to spend less money on some days, have extra to spend on the weekends. Thank you for not adding too many bells and whistles!

Life Changing - I am the WORST with finances and I've tried other apps, including Mint, which I used for a week and quit. But this app?? It's amazing. I can't speak highly enough of how much this app is getting my life together. I'm aggressively saving, paying off all of my bills and I know exactly what I get to spend a day. I will never NOT use this. I hope it's here forever.

Helps you be Accountable - This app turns my financial life into a game that I feel I can win. Daily Budget really works and it's core design sets it apart from other apps.

Very simple and clever budgeting tool

I love this idea, it takes such little time to set up and it’s free to use the most essential features (no category limits etc) in comparison to other apps. You can even change the appearance of the app icon on your home screen! I need something a little more sophisticated, i.e. to set budget limits on non-fixed expenses, but for a quick overview I still keep this in my arsenal. It takes pride of place on the first page of my home screen.

Thank you very much for your feedback! We believe that having a budget for each separate category is unnecessary complex (and stressful!) for many users. So when you use the app, and stick to the daily amount displayed by it (regardless of what you spend it on), you will be able to save the amount you wished for.

Please add time sheets to the app

I would be happy to pay for the ability to add time sheets to this app, so that I can enter in the hours I have worked on a project and the hourly rate I charge and then the app works it out for me.

Please also add the ability to have regular set aside amounts. E.g. tithing, savings, charity, investing. You already have 10% but it doesn’t work it out for extra, irregular income. Only regular pay checks. For those of us in small business without a regular pay check, this function would make budgeting a lot easier.

Thanks a lot for reaching out! We want to incorporate charity in the app. For the meantime, you can use "Big Spending" for charity since it will do the same thing - put away a certain amount from daily budget every day. Besides, you can set a fixed amount for saving instead of a percentage, please, kindly tap the button below "You will be saving:" on the Savings screen and enter your fixed amount.

Clean & Simple!!

I've looked all over the App Store for a good budgeting app, and this one definitely proved to be most simple yet intuitive to use for everything I want to do in budgeting!
Some of the functions such as big spendings are great to keep up saving but want to plan for something big in the future within the limit of your budget!
Potential improvement though, could be on adding an undo button for mistakes made in the last entry.
BUT AN AWESOME APP NONETHELESS! Keep up the good work!!

Many thanks for your feedback! You can cancel the current operation by tapping Back in the upper left corner, instead of Done.
