  • Awesome App

    By Ham Mer
    My wife and I struggled for years seeking the best way to communicate our budget. I manage the accounts, she does most of the spending. We don’t like cash because so much is spent online, and cards are just more convenient. Without cash, the envelope system was not an option. Our budgeting turned into me accounting where the money was already spent each month. Your app changes all that. Thank you so much! The only reason I don’t close my excel sheet permanently is that your system doesn’t seem to have future projections. It would be awesome if I could track future income and expenses in here, to see that my account balances will not dip too low in the coming 12 months. Add that feature and I will insist that all my friends and family start using Goodbudget. I’d love to have a direct email to communicate other feedback and recommendations as they arise. I love budgeting and would be glad to know you are interested in ideas to keep developing and improving what you offer. UPDATE: Since I don’t know where else to share my ideas. I just reviewed my excel sheet and found these additional features which may not translate over to Goodbudget yet. 1. Calculate goals for charitable giving to multiple organizations, as a percent of gross income 2. Compare actual giving to goal percents in order to make any needed adjustments in actual giving. *Points 1 and 2 could be applied to savings in the same way. 3. Track gross income and paycheck withholdings 4. Allow a better catch-all for bills and income which do not need envelopes. Currently I cannot move funds from an envelope to unallocated. I had to create an envelope for that purpose, which complicates some of the sweep and schedule features. 5. Group envelopes together for subtotals other than the current monthly or annual distinction 6. Ability to budget for expenses that don’t need an envelope, like income, and bills with due dates. 7. Ability to compare budget projections to actual spending history 8. Ability to see budget projections for coming 12 months, as I mentioned above, including ALL anticipated income and expenses 9. Display future account balances based on those projections, at least on a month end basis, if not daily, to avoid overdraft. Maybe give two projections, with or without the envelope money, to give sort of a high and low water mark. 10. This is redundant to a couple previous points, but distinguish between bills that have due dates, and envelopes which are spent over a month or year. I guess you’d have to distinguish between monthly bills and less frequent or irregular bills that may still require an envelope. 11. Allow positive and negative entries everywhere. They are always possible on the browser version, but sometimes negative entries can’t be entered in the app. There is sometimes a “credit/expense” field, but I know I’ve seen places where even this option does not appear in the app. Thanks
  • Let me try it without

    By Pgmolina
    having to create an account. You could at least add the option to login using your google account. That way, if I decide to subscribe I can then continue using my google account or create a login. Not having this option is a non starter for me. What if after trying out your app I don’t like it and want to look elsewhere? I am stuck with creating an account that I will never use.
  • Love this App, however would love to see a couple features...

    By Edmistica
    This App is so amazing. I love the simplicity. Definitely worth the cost to stay on budget. However, I have a couple of features I would LOVE to see added. I would love a “Temporary Category” envelope option. When there’s a birthday or car registration etc that only applies to a particular month, it would be nice to see within the app interface which categories those are at a glance. Also, it would be nice to have a general “Notes” section, where I could make notes like “overpaid phone bill, it will be pro rated next month” so I can keep track of next month’s budget expectations.
  • Best budget app!

    By Cats in Cravats
    Goodbudget has been my go-to budget app for years. It's the best, easiest, and simplest replacement for the old cash envelope budget system. I use the free version, so I don't have bank account syncing, but I've always been diligent about tracking my transactions and checking my bank account to make sure everything lines up, so I don't feel like I'm missing anything. On payday I simply go in and fill the appropriate envelopes and it keeps me on track with all my bills and living expenses. I love that the app has an "Annual/Irregular" feature, which I use to track my "sinking funds" like car maintenance and pet bills; things I might not spend money on monthly, but I still budget for. I use the 10 monthly envelopes to track my monthly bills and daily spending like groceries and gas in my checking account and the annual/irregular envelopes to track my sinking funds in my savings account. I love this app and will continue to use it as long as it's around!
  • See where your money goes

    By philiplives
    My wife and I love this app. We do a yearly subscription (and it has its own envelope) and it is well worth it. We each have an allowance so big goofy purchases don’t need to be explained. I just safe up my allowance. When bills are due the money is there and our savings is building faster than ever. We both have the app on our phones so both can see where our money is any time. We never argue over finances and that is huge. And I have it set when we get paid to automatically distribute to each envelope. And bills that are automatically paid through bank bill pay are automatically removed from the envelope. Balancing takes about 15 min. Why would you not do your budget like this? I swear buy it. After all the bills got set up in envelopes we started adding envelopes. Christmas, home decor, medical, property taxes, eating out, we’ve even paid off three credit cards.
  • Great App for Managing Budget

    By A.Ley
    I’ve always been a fan of the envelope method of budgeting and this app is just like that in electronic form. Not only does it allow me to set up envelopes for spending, but it offers useful charts to see the categories I spend the most in. I’ve used it for years now and don’t plan to stop using it in the future.
  • Potential but not useable for me

    By Laneah
    My expenses are paid monthly as well as weekly. When setting up an expense, there is no way to allocate it as one or the other without making ALL your expenses the same. That additional option would make this app great! I just don’t want to go in and adjust my budget every few months for that 5th Friday.
  • Incredibly Helpful Tool

    By heather and paul
