Ratings and Reviews
Great concept with room for improvement
I love the idea of this app. It’s got exactly the right amount of detail & tracking for what we need. I find that a lot of budgeting apps include way too much detail so that they become cumbersome to set up & then use, or they are too simplistic & don’t allow enough information to be all that helpful. Goodbudget is easy to get set up & simple to use...you can input income & set categorical monthly budgets (i.e. petrol, groceries, entertainment, etc) & then tracking our spending. I appreciate the details you can include in each transaction (vendor name, date, notes, splitting transactions between different categories) & I like that I can look back over the month & see the individual transactions & that they automatically sort by date of transaction.
I do find a few problems/lacking features I’d love to see included, especially to merit a paid subscription. Firstly, I find managing the household (changing envelope amounts, adding new envelopes, deleting an envelope) to be difficult, both online & within the app. It’s not set up in a very intuitive way. Second, i think it would be useful to have an option to add a photo of the receipt to a transaction. And finally, as someone who travels internationally often, it would be nice to have a currency converter within the app so I can input a transaction in a foreign currency & have it convert to USD.
Needs a couple features, but great app!
I’ve been using this for five months now, and this is the best app for a digital version of the old cash envelope system, a la Dave Ramsey. It’s great because some budget categories get spent completely every month to a zero balance, whereas other categories may accumulate over time, like savings, and this app accounts for these growing “envelope” balances - something that every budgeting app I’ve tried lacked. As long as you, and your spouse, enter EVERY transaction, it’s a dream to use. And with the accounts feature turned on you’ll know exactly how much you have at any time. I have bank and credit accounts entered, so I always know their balances at a glance. WHAT IS LACKING: There needs to be a RECONCILE feature in the app for when you need to compare what’s in Goodbudget versus your bank or credit card statements - like a checkbox next to each transaction in the transaction list. It’s frustrating sometimes to try and make sure you’ve got everything entered but have no way to mark what you’ve already verified. Ugh! Also, there needs to be a SEARCH feature in the app to search for specific transactions. There is one for the website but not the app. ——- Get the app! Keep up the good work, Goodbudget!
Developer Response ,
Hi Tricksterinator - Glad to hear you're liking the app, and thanks for letting us know how we can improve! I've added your vote for an iOS search feature, as well as a reconcile feature in the app. In case you missed it, you are able to reconcile on the web. You can do that by heading to your Accounts and then clicking on the 'Reconcile' button. Hope that helps!
Has saved me thousands; but it’s time to step up the technology!
I have used Goodbudget for 3 years now, and it has absolutely changed my life. Even as a single-person household working in human services, Goodbudget helped me save a down payment for a house, which I bought 18 months after I began using the program. Today, Goodbudget helps make paying all the monthly bills possible and still have money for 401k and for whatever fun goals I set, such as saving up for an overseas vacation or a new car.
My parents began using Goodbudget a year ago, and they have also saved thousands within the course of a year. I can’t recommend this program enough.
That being said, it’s high time that the IT department stepped up its game. The app hasn’t been optimized for iPhone X, envelopes cannot be fully customized on the app, etc. If I’m going to keep recommending the app to all my friends, I hope they will step up their game and make the app something to be really proud of. (I don’t like recommending a program and then apologizing to my friends because the app is lacking in areas). Also, pricing could be reduced to attract more newcomers, in combination with starting a referral program so we could be rewarded for bringing Goodbudget brand new long term paying customers.
