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.

Can't Live Without This!

I have had this app since November of last year (2016) so I think I'm a pretty good judge of if is effective or not and I just have to say that I honestly do not know how I would be able to budget without this! It's so simple and quick to use. Way easier and more convenient than other apps like Mint. All you have to do is put in your income, your fixed monthly expenses and how much you want to try to save and it gives you what your remaining "daily budget" is. You just have to make sure that you consistently enter in your transactions each day, which is super easy and quick to do. I especially like the "big expense" feature that helps you plan for upcoming large purchases without having to worry about adjusting your savings contribution. Seeing what your daily budget is and if you are negative or positive that day really helps you to make better decisions about your where you are spending your money and you are less likely to make unnecessary impulse purchases (for me anyways). There have been times where I have been negative for the day but really wanted to buy something, but then decided against it because I didn't want to see it become even more negative and have to "catch up." It also makes saving money so much easier. It's truly amazing how effective this app is with how simple and easy it is. I don't think my spending habits would be the same without it.

Awesome app but...


If that is the case, can you add a button below “delete” that says “end recurring expense” or “end” that just put ends the expense so that users don’t have to set the end date to previous month (that’s the more annoying part). Also, if you want to make magic happen, if I change something about the recurring expense, ask the user if it wants it to apply to all cycles or just this one. Then if user selects just this one you behind the scenes ends the expense in the previous cycle, clone the expense with new start and end dates and boom, problem solved. The last suggestions is better than the first one. Hope you can implement that. Thanks.

I use this app everyday. It’s how I manage my money. I just want to ask for a minor change that it was introduced recently. Please, please, let me change and tweak my regular income and recurring expenses per cycle like it was before. Now if I change something, it will affect all my cycles because now the app uses date ranges for everything. I just want to tweak my current cycle. I do not want to need to change the end date so that I can “finish” the recurring expense and create another one with the same name with my new number. It’s just annoying. Let us modify our daily budget per cycle without modifying the before ones. Thanks. Used to love the app but that little change is making everything hard for me.

The app I never knew I needed

This is the budgeting app I never knew I needed! I’m only two weeks in but I’m already impressed. I’m still skeptical because I’ve tried many apps that eventually don’t work out, which is why I’m cautiously giving it a 4 star for now. For some reason, these other apps are overly difficult to keep track of a budget. It just never made sense to me. A budgeting app should make your life easier, not more difficult. With Daily Budget, I like that I can input fixed income, costs, and savings. I also like the ability to see my daily budget and add any (+) or (-) costs. It has a reminder option that I turn on for 9pm that way I can input my costs at the end of the day, if my day was chaotic and busy. I was sick of over-spending and not having a clue of where my money was going. Life is a variable though and this app allows the flexibility to spend money every day, if needed, but spend it more consciously (as you’ll have a set daily budget determined by your fixed incomes, costs, and savings). It’s exactly what I needed. I love that the basic functions are FREE. I also like that you can individually purchase any other functions you might need. I bought the no ads, more categories, and graphs add-ons and I don’t regret one bit. I’ll be back in a few months to update my review and re-rate it.
