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.

Use to be FIVE stars BUT...

Mike T!!

Your app just deleted a whole month of expenses ... again. July's expenses and income are missing. This is the third time I've had to experience this. This is very upsetting when you depend on a budget app for your daily life finances. I recommend you solve this bug. I've given you wonderful reviews and paid for your app. Unfortunately I won't be using your app and reporting this problem on the App Store until you figure out why you keep having this issue. I appreciate the services you've provided up to this point.

Update - I've tried the recommended edit, but when I try to edit the cycle, the app only allows me to delete cycles not add them. Sorry. I know you're trying to help, but, this is not the solution to add the cycle back. Is there another? I loved your app, but this has happened one to many times and I would love for the app to work like it use to. Please fix.

Update - Thank you for your solution to add the cycles back on. I had to click on the cycle and then edit the cycle's date to include the current month and the previous month for the app to find the "lost" transactions. I've updated my rating. I still love the app, but would like to see a fix for this glitch that causes random "lost" transactions. I know y'all are doing your best. Thanks.

Once again, please, take our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience! We have released v3.4.2 that should fix this sync issue - could you kindly download it in the app store and advise whether your problem is solved? In addition, you can always email us at if you have any questions, comments or issues!

Not Date Flexible


Purchased directly the pro version based on all of the positive reviews but wish I hadn’t. Each payday I save a little for entertainment and wanted to use this to make sure I don’t overspend. The date is locked on today and wouldn’t allow me to enter prior history or details behind my current balance. It also wouldn’t allow me to put next paycheck amount with the future date. Not happy that I am stuck with only today’s date for entering anything in ... what if I miss a day or forget to enter. I seriously have to wait three days to set up the payday recurring income and hope I don’t forget that day or wait another two weeks?? I have to find a better app that will allow me flexibility to enter on my timeline instead of the app.

Developer Response

We are sorry to hear that you feel that way! Please, kindly be sure that you are able to add the past transactions - just tap "Today" while entering a transaction and scroll down to the required date. If this date is not included into the cycle, please go to "Settings" > "Cycle settings" > "Edit cycles", tap the current cycle (the top one) and edit its Start date to include this day. To set pay day for your fixed income, please kindly go to "Settings" > "Cycle settings" > "Cycle type", then set "Start" to the pay day. Ability to enter variable future transactions will be introduced in one of the next releases. At the moment you can use Big Spendings for future expenses - just enter the amount and the actual payment day. The amount will be deducted from your budget every day until the full amount is paid. If you are not happy with our Pro version, please, kindly contact us directly at and we will send you instructions on how to refund it.

Great app, but need better data


Overall the app is great and helps me budget. However only a few charts in the analysis feature is helpful. It would be better if there could be more details and if the chart remain in the horizontal format.

UPDATE: Would love to see a way to group big spending expenses together. For instance if I were trying to save up for a road trip under big spending, I could only log one dollar amount to complete my spending... however throughout my trip I will be incurring multiple transactions (gas, food, lodging, etc.).

Developer Response

Many thanks for your feedback! We are currently working on improving analysis graphs – some of them to be even interactive, so you can see where your money is going, and what you can do to spend your money on things that are the most important to you. And option to group Big Spendings will be introduced in one of the next updates as well - besides, we are going to add an option to deduct expenses from the corresponding Big Spending.
