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.

Easy to use
Great app, uncomplicated, which is what I need if I am to carry on using it. Sets you a daily spend and savings target. Early days yet, but I think I will definitely stick with it.
I have been using this app for a few months now and had a problem after the last update of it crashing out when I tried to use the analysis, but that was soon sorted out.
Love this app, it is helping me to stick to my budget and save money. I particularly like the big spend were you can spread the cost of of something over a period of days, weeks, or months, for instance, l have just renewed my car insurance with a cash payment, a big spend, but I will not need to make this payment again for the next 365 days, so it works out how much you pay per day, and spreads the cost over the year. This is really helpful in knowing what your total annual spend is.
Unlike other money saving apps this one works because you use it daily, and can see your spendings on a daily basis, if you keep within your daily budget or below it, you feel good and in command of your life, it really does make you think about what you buy and if you really need it.
We did overspend at Christmas like most people, so I am trying to get back into the green again. Should be there by the end of January.
I have set a big spend of saving £1000 by the end of July to help pay for a holiday, and l feel fairly confident that we can get there.
Again this is a great app, well worth the money.

Amazing app - graphs need updating
Update Feb 2019
Still a good app, however despite being “coming” for a year now, the graphs are still basic and have not changed. The amounts get skewed and become unreadable and the savings over a year graphs does not plot the same value for the current month as the projected savings for the month view. Also the most recent update has made it slightly unsayable and the app crashes a lot more now. As I say, these problems shouldn’t deter from the app, but it would be nice if the graphs were actually sorted as opposed to forever being “coming in the next release”
Have to say this is a brilliant app; the UI is clean and slick and whilst it’s a simple concept and execution, you will find that it will encourage your saving habits - the key is the simplicity ensures it remains engaging.
The only reason why I have refrained from awarding the full compliment of stars is that I feel that the paid-for graphs are lacking somewhat in their substance, relevance and design. They don’t seem to have been created with the same level or care as the rest of the app (simple things such as text alignment, spacing etc.), and they don’t have the ability to “drill-down” into further detail in the sections (i.e. I would like to see what constitutes “food” expenditure for the month as I enter “Lunch” and “Dinner” as separate entries under the same category).

We are terribly sorry for this delay – the graphs will finally be overhauled in the upcoming v.5.1! If you are interested in trying our beta-version when it is ready - please, kindly drop us a line at "email@example.com".
Daily Budget has done a wonders for my finances, as previously I didn’t really know what my income and outgoings were. Now I’ve been able to identify areas where I spend more than I realised and been able to save money 😊 plus the app is pretty easy on the eyes and nicely designed 👍
There are several changes I’d love to see: I would prefer to be able to change the daily budget to a monthly one, as the current daily system doesn’t really reflect my manner of spending. I find it has a negative impact on me to do a big purchase and then see myself in orange for a week straight, which results in me unnecessarily starving myself to get into blue faster. Also the category icons could do with expanding, I’d like to have icons for food (as groceries is too broad a term), medicine, gifts, and feminine products 😊

Thank you very much for your appreciation! 1). If your cycle corresponds to a month, you can check your monthly budget under Analysis > Overview > Budget left. And for big purchases you can use Big Spending and distribute the expense over a period of time. That way, your budget won’t be extremely negative on few days and the app is useful. A good example is gasoline. If you had to pay 100 Euro for gas, but the gas lasts a week, then you should use Big Spending and spread the expense over 7 days. 2). Categories can be renamed/deleted and you can create your own categories as well. Please kindly tap “-“ button on the main screen and then select "Edit" in the upper right corner. Tap the category you want to edit or delete or select "+" in the upper right corner to create a new category. While creating a new category you can tap the icon by default and drag it upwards to scroll through the variety of icons available for selection.
