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.

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.

It works - for real.


Update after using for 6 weeks: it's even better than I expected. You never know how apps will pan out over the long term, but this is, by a very long way, the best budgeting app I've ever used. I love how I put my fixed costs in and the minimum I want to save and then that's it. Those costs are not relevant to me when they come in (because they are already "paid for" with this budget tool), so I only need to focus on the variable expenses. I don't have any fixed costs in for food because it's so much in my control (e.g., do I really need to buy groceries, or can I eat what's here? Do I have money to go out to eat?). Over Mother's Day weekend expenses got high because I took my mom out for dinner & drinks and bought her a gift. But even with that, this app I helped tremendously. I was "in the orange" for about 5 days, so I just was really-really careful about not spending during that time. Anyway, I could go on...if you don't think budgeting can work for you, try this app. It will surprise you.

Previous review:
I've just started with it, but wow. Very enlightening. I know it'll work. I, too, like that it doesn't automatically load in expenses. I have plenty of apps that do that, and it doesn't help keep my budget going. This has.
