Solved the problem!!!!!!!!! 4/5
For the past 7 years I have been using another online app for budgeting. My biggest problem is my hubby gets paid on the last day of the month. I needed that paycheck for the next month but the other software wouldn’t do it. So frustrating! When I ordered my FPU home kit I received a code for the plus version free for a year. So i decided to give it a try and it has revolutionized my budget. My budget is simpler and the app is easier to use. WAY BETTER than the one that rhymes with Hint. Much more flexible and much easier to use. The only issue I have is it’s hard to tell what some of the charges when they are downloaded from my bank. Maybe if they could expand the number of characters shown, then I wouldn’t have to bounce back and forth from this app to bank app. Another thing that would be nice is Dave used to have recommended percentages for categories. It’s would be great to see how we are doing with those as well. We are winning with our budget this month and we usually are pretty bad at the December budget. This app makes it fun again!! Excellent job guys!
Love app wish it was iPhone X optimized 4/5
By Chris Pitts
Love it but could you update the app to optimize it for the iPhone X display?
Good but needs some added features 3/5
I really like this app except it needs more options for people who get paid on a biweekly or weekly. It is great to see my overall monthly budget but I would like it to be able to show which paycheck is paying to what category. Everything is jumbled in all together as one month and I have to separate it out by labeling groceries 1, groceries 2 etc. even when I do that I still have to figure out how much of each paycheck can contribute to a category. It is really annoying. Through the Dave Ramsey Facebook groups, this is a common reason many choose not to use this app. I personally have to use this with Fudget, because every dollar has it where it has to be done on a monthly basis. It would be great if the developers could make it where a person could switch back and forth from monthly to pay period to get a complete view of where their money is going.
Best budget app out there, thank you!
Great app and concept but... 3/5
By London 9
When I first got this app I thought it was miracle!! After many updates, it became more and more unreliable with the transactions sometimes not going through. I have been discouraged with it thinking i have recorded all of the transactions and later to find out that it didn’t record the transaction. This is month I started using another app that doesn’t require an online uploading in order to record transactions. If I had some suggestions for this app it would be, 1) Make an option to do transactions offline so I don’t have to worry if the transactions are recorded. 2) Add more languages (Chinese) 3) Make an account where you can synchronize your budget with your spouse on their phone so that you can track even when your not around and you can see who spent what?
Great app 5/5
By App destroyer
I’ve tried them all (intuit, ewallet, etc.). They’re are either too complicated or insufficient. This app is simple and has everything I need!
Great for people new to budgeting! 4/5
By Sarah! :o
I recently graduated from college and am going on month 6 of using this app. It has completely changed (and improved) the way I manage my money! Very easy to use with a beautiful interface. I’m not married and am the only person in my household, so I can’t speak to its ease of use where families or couples are concerned, but I am confident in my ability to handle money using this app. I use the free version, I should add, and I actually prefer the added accountability of manually adding expenses.
Life changer 5/5
This is app is a true life changer if you stick with it. Been living in debt for the past 3 years and finally feel like I have a hold on my money
Great Budgeting Tool! 5/5
I use only the free version. Things I love about this app that other financial apps don't do:
-I LOVE the funds feature. I tried to do it with another app and it was always frustrating and not quite what I wanted. Here, it's simple and easy to use, and tracks what I need. BONUS: I made my next month's budget a little too early, and spent more from my funds in the current month. I double checked, and it adjusted my fund for the next month! I seriously have not found any other app that makes it so easy and being a nerd, I need my funds to work!
-I like the layout to make sure I've given every dollar a name. I fill in and adjust my income and expenses for the month, see what's leftover and throw it toward our emergency fund.
-my husband and I use this to both log in and see our budget and track our expenses, and it's helpful to keep us on the same page.
-If you use cash for any of your budgets, I find this app to be very simple to enter and split receipts. Other apps, it seems, assume everyone always uses a card and I've found them to be clunky and difficult when dealing with cash.
-I like the wheel that shows percentages of my expenses and where it goes. Our income fluctuates a lot, and that helps me see how we're doing based on %, even if my numbers are constantly changing.
-having to manually enter all of my expenses.
Feature I would need the pro version to have in order to decide to upgrade @$10/mo:
-a scan receipt feature that pulls all of the information from the receipt, saves a picture of it, matches it to an expense pulled from a bank account, or adds it if no match (for cash transactions). I have this feature on my quickbooks app for my business and I love it.
-the other must-have features I think are already built in.
For me, the pro version is not worth $10/mo right now. But manually entering my expenses is worth it to me verses other apps I don't like as much.
APP DELETED EVERYTHING 1/5
What happened? I had been logging my budget/ daily expenses for 30 days. It is now November 30th, I opened the app, and a message on the screen displays “create your November budget now.” What do you mean? I had a November budget and I was ready to log my last dollars spent. All the work and it disappeared. Very disappointing after a months worth investment.
App works well, needs iPhone X support! 3/5
I love EveryDollar Plus. I use EveryDollar every day for budgeting and tracking expenses. It’s so awesome! It would be even better if it looked amazing on my new iPhone X though!
Charge without Notification 1/5
By House of Wards
I have been using EveryDollar avidly - however, I woke up this morning to them taking out $108 from my account. I received ZERO notifications that I was going to be charged. No email, no app notification, no heads up. For being a budgeting resource you would think that it would give you a heads up for this unexpected charge. I am extremely frustrated. They should take a que from Amazon about renewing subscriptions....sheesh!
Works great at first and then it doesn’t .. 1/5
By Indy L.
The mobile version does not allow me to connect to the app without being connected to WiFi. I switched carriers and the issue still persists. Tried deleting the app and restarting and STILL have this issue. This issue is very annoying when I’m out and out and want to quickly update my transactions. I tried reaching out to EveryDollar Support and no one even replies!
Can’t live without it! 5/5
I’ve never reviewed an app before, but I had to review this one. I pay for the upgraded version of the app and it is the best $10 I budget every month! This app is so easy to use, syncs across multiple devices and makes me actually look forward to budgeting! It pulls in all of my transactions from my bank account and I just drag and drop them where they go. I couldn’t live without it!
Bad Update 1/5
Since the last update things have gone down hill. I primarily use the app on my phone, now when I'm inputting numbers the keyboard automatically toggled back to the qwerty keyboard everyone I let in a number. I'm consistently having to toggle back to the number keyboard. This is highly skinny l annoying on an app that largely deals with miners!
Needs Options for Pay Cycles 4/5
This is a very good app and we really appreciate how well this pairs with Dave’s financial principles. It would be even more helpful if the app provided the option for tracking a budget using a variety of pay cycles - bi-weekly, twice a month, etc.
Good app but needs more features! 3/5
By Removed App
I am a subscriber to PLUS and the app is great for what they have developed it to do however this is seriously lacking advanced personal finance tools to make it worth the $99 a year price tag. We need reporting features for our budget! We need investment account links and net worth calculations and graphs. There are other apps out there that can do these things and for cheaper too!
Life changing 5/5
This app literally changed my life. I could never figure out why other budget apps like mint never worked for me, and then I heard about zero based budget thing and it totally clicked. My income changes every month so that means my expenses have to change too! Duh!! :)
Apple Watch Support 3/5
Please make an Apple Watch compatible version of this app!
Buggy and broken 1/5
My expenses don’t show up anymore for past months, which makes the app all but useless now. I have updated the app and my IOS software.
I paid for the $99 premium version and expected it to work, but it doesn’t now. I have contacted the app developer but haven’t got a reply yet. I want to get a refund for their broken product.
It’s disappointing when app developers start off with great ideas and let them go bad.
Crappy app 1/5
This app is the opposite of what the description says. It is not easy at all. I tried putting in what I spent so far this month and it just keeps telling me that I’m over budget when I’m not.
Love it but have suggestion 4/5
I love the app. I use it everyday. Just one thing. Please freeze the Planned, Spent, Remaining Pane? I hate having to scroll all the way up to toggle back and forth.
Best Budgeting App 5/5
Great app with a few NEEDS 4/5
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ! I use this app every day. It really is easy to get the heart of where my money is going. But a few basic features should be added:
Auto filtering for frequented merchants
A-Z sorting for transactions
Option to pull in credit card info
Premium version should not be so expensive for an app that teaches to save money
Love it! 4/5
This is the best budget app I’ve used. I’ve tried Mint and others but this just helps me to understand my finances better and supports the Dave Ramsey plan. I use the free version and Love it! I recommend it to everyone.
After the last update I can not change the planned money by the phone app. I need to go on the website to do so. But I still love this app. Hope you fix that.
Great but... 4/5
This app is great I just wish it had he option to have different accounts so that I know what account I paid a certain bill from as I have several. Even if they are not linked to a bank account. It would be a 5 star if it had that option.
Other than that this app has really opened my eyes to my spending habits. And whoa!!!!!
Great. Even the free version. 5/5
My wife and I started using this in June 2017. Prior to that I managed the budget on my own with Excel. Today we do the budget together and our spending has gotten totally under control.
We also only use the free version. I appreciate that they don’t try to up sell the premium version!
PLZ ALLOW SORT TRANSACTIONS 5/5
Such a great app! One thing that I think would really improve the app is if I could filter or sort the transactions are there by price high to low or name of transaction A-to-Z. It would make reviewing certain transactions much more convenient. Hope you guys consider! Thank you again for all that you do.
Pay to link accounts 2/5
I love the layout and organization of this app, but I hate that you have to pay for the premium service to link any accounts. I was looking to switch from Mint, where linking is free, but I guess I’ll just stick with it for now. 😕
Great app, but... 4/5
I love DR and his teachings and I love the idea of EveryDollar, but the price tag for premium is just a bit outrageous. Plus there’s no version for the iPad, which I would absolutely love to have! Fix the price, add the iPad app and add a couple bells and whistles and it’s a 5. Until then, I hate to say, it’s a 4.
Every dollar app 1/5
So does not work on my iPhone and just keep getting the same cut and past trouble shooting info from their tech group. Not apple friendly at all. And tech group was unhelpful
Great app 4/5
The paid subscription would be better if my bank transactions were synced in real time instead of waiting 2-3 days for it to catch up with the app. Overall, its an extremely helpful tool that I am excited to have and use. This is the first time i have created a legitimate budget for myself, at 35. Sad but true although I am making many improvements. Thanks!!
Great app but needs a couple added features to make it perfect! 4/5
I’d love to see an auto populate feature for places we frequent. For instances, whenever I type in the name of the grocery store, it would automatically mark the grocery budget. Also, versus typing in store name, a drop down menu of already used stores would be a helpful feature.
You have to pay to connect your bank account 2/5
I heard of the Every Dollar app and the Mint app on a Dave Ramsey budgeting group, so I tried out both. I like the interface of Every Dollar more but you have to pay for the premium version to link your bank account when Mint does this for free. If it was free to connect your bank account I think this would be the better app but I’m not going to pay money to try to save money when there’s a different app that does it for free.
Would be 5 Stars But... 3/5
This app is fantastic. However the $99 price tag for Every Dollar Plus is too expensive. Many other apps import transactions from your bank for half that price. Dave claims this is to cover the cost of connecting to your bank but there is obviously quite a bit of profit built in to the price tag. $99 is tough to swallow for folks in baby step 2 trying to get out of debt. Lower the price to $50 a year or $6 a month and I think many more people would sign up. For now, I’ll use other apps such as YNAB that are half the price. I love Ramsey’s teachings and am an avid follower, but the price of this product is out of line.
Wont let me sign in after I verified my account. Anyone know how to fix it?
Just started using it 4/5
Just started using this. I can easily see how this will make my budgeting easier so I can get out of debt faster and with less pain.
It would be nice, however, if there were an iPad version as well or if this would play nicer with the iPad.
Needs a little more work 3/5
I pay the extra to import my transactions... contradicts my purpose, but it’s worth it to me to save some time.
I selected 3 items as my favorites and they are at the top for the planned, but when it’s time to add a transaction to that line item, I still have to scroll through to get to it. Kind of pointless to have a favorite when it should be at the top of that “remaining” section.
Also, although I shouldn’t need this in theory, sometimes my catagories go over the budget but it doesn’t change the “balanced budget screen” would love see that reflected at the top.
Otherwise, I like it and use it daily.
This app will save your relationship 5/5
This app helps you keep track on every cent. Best ever
Best Fintech app I have used 5/5
Using the concept of "give every dollar a job" and this app together has really changed my life financially. Planning out my spending ahead even for fun things and not just bills has allowed me to take better control of my finances and make better decisions on purchases.
I have used other apps and custom spreadsheets but this app has proven the most reliable and helpful for me. I paid for the subscription and it was worth it. I love that I can easily categorize my transactions from my bank to my line items in the budget I created. It also allows me to move items in my budget around see what options I have for spending if an unexpected expense happens. Love it!
Transactions don't import 2/5
I really want this app to work. We have the plus version but my transactions don't import. It's only partially importing my one bank account for the month but I can't import any previous months to review my spending and budget. I have several tech tickets open with them but I can never get a straight answer. It's always a " hmmm, looks good on my end" or " it can take up to 72 hours for transactions " which never come in. It's been two weeks already. I am so sad this isn't working like it should. Guess I will just go back to mint. :(
ADS!? Even after Premium Access? 1/5
The development team decided to include ADS to the latest update of the Every Dollar application. Trust me, I already receive emails from Ramsey Solutions on a very regular basis. I've drank the Kool Aid, love Dave, follow his advice and am an FPU graduate. But I can't stand promotions in a PAID iOS app!
If I'm paying for "premium" access to the Every Dollar application, I don't want to have ads bothering me every time I pull up my budget as well!!
Please don't include moving forward. I'll edit this review once the feature is taken off. Listen to your customers!! Ads are for free applications. Premium users shouldn't be hit up since they are already paying!!
Great App but doesn't sync regularly 3/5
I love this app and recently started paying for the Plus version which boasts syncing your accounts. Unfortunately it doesn't sync but every few days (4/5/6 days?) and I love being able to budget regularly. So I end up just putting the transactions in manually; which defeat the purpose in my opinion. The transactions must hard post first on my bank accounts (which I understand) but it still takes several days after that. Please fix this!
Best budgeting app 5/5
You will love it. So practical for living life within your means.
Simple & Straightforward 5/5
By Conservative millennial
If you're a Dave Ramsey fan, this app is a must. Easy to use and even though your budget is different each month, the template from the previous month remains and you can make changes from there. Paid off $28k in 10 months with the help of EveryDollar!
This app is great. It’s well designed and truly helps me stay on track with my budget.
Suggestion to creators: it would be great to be able to see all of my funds and their balances at one time.
Here's an idea... 5/5
I would like to be able to share this app with other iPhone users. Is there a way to do so?
Needs an iPad app 3/5
Otherwise, it’s a great app, and I’d give it 5 stars. Using the iPhone app on the iPad is a sub-par experience, and the website isn’t entirely touch friendly (not to mention how mixed up it gets in portrait orientation). Please make an iPad app!
Strong app, NEEDS EXPORT FEATURE 3/5
I like the app. I use it every day. But it really needs an export feature! I want to be able to track my spending and income for each category over past years; very difficult without an export feature.
