  • Don’t waist your time

    Great concept easy to use but as soon as you get busy putting your bills in they tell you to subscribe to add more bills. At that point your happy to subscribe but the whole process is pointless because their subscription platform is not set up yet! So essentially you have a non functioning app for download. Misleading! You should take down or warn people the max is 10 envelopes (bills). Saves us 5 minutes of our life.
  • Detailed enough without being overly complicated.

    By akdandelionmom
    I tried out several apps and online programs for budgeting until settling on Goodbudget. Those include You Need a Budget, Mvelopes, Every Dollar, and Mint, and perhaps others that I’m not thinking of. My preference for Goodbudget is probably very much a personal preference as far as how I like to see accounts and information displayed. In the paid version, there is plenty of room for detail and keeping your different expenses and accounts separate without being overly complicated and technical. I like having an “unallocated” fund to keep excess funds before we have determined what they will be used for or in case our expenses are less for a particular month. I also like that it does not link to my bank account. Some may prefer that option, but I find that I am more aware of my expenses if I’m being forced to enter each one, and it helps force the habit of entering transactions as soon as they are made. The app and online site sync easily, and the expense entry system is intuitive and simple. In the app, entering deposits and merchandise returns requires a different series of operations from an expense, which is a little cumbersome but not awful. I also would love to have the option to take a picture of the receipt and store it with the transaction. All in all, it’s an easy app to use and provides the information I need at a glance. I think it’s definitely worth the money for a paid subscription. I started out paying monthly, but I’ll be upgrading to a yearly payment to save money.
  • Best Budget app around

    My wife and I have used this app for the past 5 years and love it! It’s great for making a budget, syncing our selectee purchase and keeping us on track with our finances.
  • Nice but manually tiring

    By mwforsythe
    I wish you could easily connect it to your bank account so the money would automatically reduce from each envelope.

    My husband and I love this app so much! It is the first and only thing that’s ever helped us stay on budget from month to month. I love how easy it is and how it syncs with my husband. Thanks so much to whoever created this app. 💕💕💕💕
  • Difficult to understand & use

    By bikinicar
    I want to like this app. Lots of people seem to love it and use it religiously. I’ve been trying to use it for a week now and I find it clunky, difficult to understand, oddly complicated and not intuitive. The guides are very basic and don't really explain things beyond what is supposed to be straightforward but in practice really isn’t at all. Nothing is easy to adjust or change and I found that I inadvertently messed up my numbers again and again trying to correct or change something. Then I had to revert to outdated or inaccurate numbers to make the budget “work” again. It takes way too much headspace to get a quick understanding of where I was at in terms of my envelopes and then even refilling envelopes mid-budget was so confusing I’ve given up.
  • Really hard to understand

    By Uhh... Christy...
    Probably going to have to find something else to use. I can’t figure out how to add/subtract money from envelopes. I want to throw my phone! So frustrated!
  • No subscription

    By Flannelpj
    I just downloaded the app. And have more than 10 envelopes. So it says to subscribe. But I can’t because the option is not available. So I’m deleting the app. Going to something more comprehensive. The income also does not let you put cents in. Only dollars
  • Best budgeting app I’ve used!

    By SFKNR
    I love Goodbudget! It is seriously the best budget app I’ve ever used. Here’s what I love about it. First, it’s really simple to get started. They have a great Getting Started Video series that walks people through getting set up from start to finish. Second, everything is customizable. So I can create my own envelope categories and set the budget for each. I can create scheduled transactions that add in my income on the day I actually get paid, as well as scheduled payments for things that I pay automatically, like my car insurance. Third, I really appreciate that I have to manually add transactions myself. I think that keeps me much more aware of my spending because I have to add each one myself. My boyfriend uses Mint, and he has no idea how much he’s spent on things until he logs in and categorizes everything. Only then will he realize he’s over budget. That will not happen to you if you diligently add your expenses into Goodbudget. That also forces me to open up the app and actually look at my envelopes before spending, because I know if I don’t have enough cash to cover my purchase, my envelope will go negative, and I work hard to avoid that. Overall, the most important thing Goodbudget allows me to do is plan before I spend by setting money aside in an envelope. That way, I’m consciously making a plan for how I want to spend money that month. And I know that when an envelope is empty, I should stop spending.
