Would like to have a calculator integrated. Or an auto add or deduct feature. Example, it says I have $139 left to budget for, would like to have the option to add it into the category and auto sum for me. Math. Is. Hard >.<
Best budgeting tool! 5/5
By Debt Free in 2018
I love this app. Its a great visual for me to see where my money is going and so easy to track expenses.
I would like for it to have an acessible calculator.
It still gets 5 stars!
Great app for budgeting 4/5
Love the features and how easy it is to use. I would like to teach my students how to use it with a screen reader (blind students) but the app is not accessible or easy to use with voiceover. Also if they could make the website accessible that would be great too! Thanks!
Best FREE Budgeting tool! 5/5
I can't express how much this app means to me. I love budgeting with this app, it really helps you to save and stay consistent. I can't tell you how much I look at it every fay and see how it grows and grows. This app will help anyone who's struggling to control thier own money. LOVE THIS APP!!
Free Version Good 5/5
I'm using the free version and like it so far. It's held me accountable in my spending. It's a little tedious manually entering my purchases, but that's also stopped some of my compulsive buys. "Do I want to record the 70 cents for a soda? Too much work." I've saved $$ already from not buying all my sodas, coffees, and candy bars.
Nice but... 2/5
My husband and I got the EveryDollar app after listening to Dave Ramsey and becoming debt free. I like to keep track of where are money goes. The problem I have though is our income is based off commissions and is bi-weekly. EveryDollar is more of a monthly tool and works best for salary incomes, this makes it very hard to budget money(before) and ends up just seeing where it was all used(after). We also got the feature to have ED paired with our bank but it can be annoying when I have to continually long back in to my bank connection.
Will not work with USAA 1/5
Don't even bother with customer service. She just said it could take up to a month to figure out why it doesn't work with Usaa. Save the time and go with mint. They know why things don't work and they work with UsAA.
Here is an endorsed app for saving money.... 1/5
Wait, in order to track my spending through my Bank I have to take what little I was saving and spend $9.95/month to track it??? There are tons of other ways to track spending and this for me will not be one. What a rip off.
Poor execution, frustrating experience 1/5
By Cool Hand Pete
EveryDollar has been a total hassle since we began. Our bank has not been able to remain synced for more than 2 weeks since we began. Even when it is not synced, the app says, "Updated X hours ago," so we are unaware the app is not syncing with the bank until we cross-check it. We realized on vacation this week the app does not work at all without internet. The interface is graphically wonky - even with Chrome, which we were told was stable. I got out of debt and remain debt-free because of Dave Ramsey, and I took his advice at an FPU leader's meeting several months ago and decided to try this. I am sad to say we are wholly unimpressed.
We have switched back to the new YNAB and they execute Dave's money method better than his own app does!
Would like to go plus, BUT 3/5
I would love to pay the extra and get plus, but at this point It is not worth it
1. The app does not show amount spend against actual income, only against budgeted income. My monthly budget includes two paycheck, and I need to see how much I have left over based on actual, not budgeted
2. There is no way to print the transactions. So good luck reconciling your budget transactions against bank statements.
3. There is no export options. Again, making it very difficult to reconcile transactions.
Please listen to your customers. They have some good ideas.
Can't live without it, can be improved 5/5
I am updating my review because this app has fixed the previously annoying connection issues. Over the last 6 months the automatic transactions have been stellar, it was my only gripe before. Now this gets five stars. Hoping this company will come up with a full featured personal finance application that builds on the ease of use of this budgeting app.
I have tried every budgeting app I could find and I keep coming back to every dollar. I like that I have to physically move each transaction into a budget category instead of it automatically being assigned. It keeps me aware of what I'm spending and often find myself feverishly logging on and waiting for new transactions to come in so I can see my progress. I do have the paid version, and think it is a must so I don't miss any transactions.
If you have USAA or may ever need customer support don't bother. 1/5
They can't connect to USAA & are totally unhelpful about it. Their support reps are rude, condescending, & don't take the time to actually comprehend what the problem is. Different reps tell you different things & then ultimately cast the blame on you. The interface seems great if their app can handle your bank & you never need to deal with their customer service, but unfortunately for me, neither of those turned out to be true.
Compared to Quickbooks, etc., this pays for itself and more. 5/5
What an awesome step forward for getting your finances in shape through the Baby Steps! Though it is (obviously) not a casual app. After setting up my first budget on my desktop and getting into the habit of classifying the transactions as they came in, I noticed an immediate difference -- not just in how much I knew where my money was going but also -- in my spending behavior. Dave Ramsey's team is a life changing positive influence. And I thank everyone who put their hard work into making this what it is now.
Dave's vision in an App 5/5
I'm a huge Dave fan, and this app is the perfect culmination of his budget. I love to be able to see budgeted, spent, and remaining. This is a great app and very well done!
Love it!! 5/5
It's so easy, the way it should be!!
Confusing and unreliable 1/5
Very convoluted app and it shouldn't be. It's simple math but this app is also extremely glitchy with an unfailing ability to crash upon startup and mixing numbers and budgets around without touching anything.
It's great....when it works. 3/5
Love the concept, frustrated with the delivery. I have to sign in pretty much every time and even then my transactions aren't guaranteed to load. When it does work, it's super easy to use. Hopefully they can work out the glitches.
Bummed about update 4/5
By Joshua the GR
Love this app but bummed out that I updated it. Now every time I enter a transaction, there is an annoying ad asking to upgrade. Looks cheap now.
Little Glitchy, but Still Amazinh 4/5
I pay monthly for the upgraded app. Definitely worth it to have it auto in all our incomes and expenditures. There are some times where it's glitchy (disconnects a bank account, kinda shuts off, goes blank) but that's rare and doesn't interfere much with my actual regular use of the app. Hope they clean it up, but it's 100% what we needed to help us stay on budget. We use it in conjunction with a spreadsheet on the computer where we have the actual full budget, then use every dollar for category tracking. WAY better than Mint. Well designed I think. I love it!!!! Worth the money too in my opinion!!! We've never been so good at budgeting.
Like it but not for $10 3/5
I do really like this app, I've used both it and Mint. I found this one to be the easiest and as a follower of DR of course this works the best with his financial plan. However, that said, I honestly don't think it offers enough to warrant paying $10/mo just for acct syncing. Mint does this for free. Not sure whether I'll continue the bank sync option once my free trial runs out. That aside, great app & easy to use.
Needs lots of work 2/5
The concept is great, the app, not so much. Can't get this to drag and drop, updating from the bank is a hit or miss, work when it wants, it decides not me. Love DR, but this whole app needs work. I keep trying to love it. It's just not happening, huge disappointment . 😳
This is a great tool, on-line and with the app! Simple to use on the run. Considering the plus version, just have to get it in the budget:)
Almost great 3/5
The concept is amazing and it actually works until the app gets stuck and you can't enter your budget updates or your spending. Lots of freezes during entry and slow to delete.
SPAM City 1/5
Signed up for the app and have not stopped getting SPAM. It's a ridiculous amount, and every time you unsubscribe from marketing emails, 10 more show up the next day.
Better than I deserve 5/5
By \m/ (-_-) \m/
The app is FANTASTIC!!!
Thank you, Dave Ramsey for making this available to everyone for FREE!!
Is there a way to make a future version have a horizontal mode where I can see the list of all transactions on the left and have it show individual transaction details on the right?
Thank you for all of your hard work!
Almost awesome 3/5
Love this app in theory- dislike that I get the text verification from my bank literally every time the app opens which I'm guessing is why the bank doesn't often sync correctly. :( can't wait for future updates and seamless use! :)
Love so much about the app, especially the UI, but it doesn't pull down all transactions. Without all transactions, it's worthless. One star! Boo!
tried multiple times, error occurs just getting started. not worth your time to even try.
We love it! 5/5
This app is great. My wife and I make our monthly budget on the website and it updates instantly on our phone apps. We can each keep track of spending and see when the other one makes a change. Get this and follow Dave's steps because they work!
You lost a new customer! 2/5
By Budget Master
I almost downloaded the Mint app, but did not because of the reviews complaining of bank connection/app functionality issues. Now that I see the exact same reviews of complaints for Everydollar plus, why would I pay $10 a month for it? I refuse to pay for something that's unreliable. I'm Going back to Mint because at least it's free to connect bank accounts. Love Dave Ramsey, but the reputation of his app needs to catch up before I fork out hard earned money. I'll check back later to see if reviews ever improve.
Don't help make DR richer 1/5
I'm a massive DR fan. He's a great man and better this App
It's two or three times more expensive than comparable Apps.
Worse yet, he constantly says it's free.
I have used it a year 3/5
I have used the app and also the website for exactly one year. It's super easy to use and I have been happy with it. I have had no problems at all getting my transactions downloaded and I have a local credit union. The only thing is they never come out with any new features. I am quite surprised that a year has passed and nothing. I have contacted support twice. The feature I would like to see is to be able to see yearly graphs/averages of what I spend in each category. Like what I just spent over the past year. But now I will have to go in month by month and add up what I spent on groceries this past year to get an average. I want to do this is so I can get an idea of what a reasonable amount for my grocery budget should be so I can budget for that. Or gas or gifts or clothing. I'm sure others would like to see what their spending trends are as well. Sure, it has Dave Ramsey's name on it but I am thinking about switching to another budgeting app if nothing changes. My kid's games get more updates than this app.
Very clunky and lacks functionality 1/5
I constantly have to reconnect my accounts and it is very irritating not being able to export your budgets/expenses at the end of each month. Seems like it would be easy to dump it into excel and allow the user to export it. If I have to do that by hand, why am I paying for this app. I love Dave, but will look at other alternatives when my year is up.
Love this app 5/5
This app is great to get finances and a budget sorted out. It really makes you mindful (I haven't connected my bank accounts) and aware of where your money is REALLY going.
Needs some improvements 3/5
It's a great app so far, but there needs to be one made for the iPad.
Does what it says 4/5
I'm a huge Dave fan. The app is still at "day one" (Jeff B says the same about Amazon though). They're continually striving to do better and will continue to have my business as long as they do so. I know Dave is down on the credit score but it would be nice to have it in the app like Mint. Also it lacks some features like machine learning and recommend unsubscribe services to save money like the Clarity app. Other apps like Clarity also have a "I want to save $___ amount today" and show you how based on your habits. Hopefully they can keep up b/c I do love their mission.
Refuses to let me verify 1/5
By FTE luver
No matter how many times I send to my email, it will not let me verify and only continue to give that direction. Never have been able to work.
Perfect for budgeting! 3/5
Great app, so nice for creating my monthly budget!
This app needs to have a version for an iPad because right now you can only get the iPhone app on the iPad! It's annoying.
Doesn't work 1/5
Sends a verify email mail. Click verify and it takes you to a page to direct you to download the app. Nothing else. I already have the app. Just trying to open it.
Works well! 5/5
This app has been great. We've been using it for six months without issue. It's simple and allows multiple people to access the account which is great for couples. We love this app.
Great app, pricy upgrade 3/5
Love the app, easy to use and manage however it's 10 bucks a month to add your bank account... apps like mint are free however others around 5 bucks.... especially since this is a money managing app I think 10 is high monthly... so lower your price and I will give more stars
Completely Disappointed 1/5
I have taken Financial Peace and wanted to use an app with budgeting similar to the way the class teaches. This app, however, is completely unreliable. My accounts completely stopped syncing even though it kept telling me the last update was within a few minutes. Maybe this is another Financial Peace lesson that I shouldn't pay for something I can do for free. I'm sure DR wouldn't approve of paying for a service that doesn't work.
Great app if it worked 3/5
It's a great app, but I have to continue to add my transactions manually. It's been 1 week now and my transactions won't load unless I delete and add my bank login again. Please fix this!
Auto renewal 2/5
They take your money without notice. Beware!
Indispensable to our marriage business. 5/5
We use this to budget every dollar we make each month. $27,000 in debt, $20,000 in savings, with 15 months with no tenant in our house; all within two years. It's easy to use, and along with Financial Peace University, it's indispensable to our marriage business.
Garbage app 1/5
It won't let you verify your email and it says you have to do that before you can use the app. Don't waste your time trying like I have.
Love the app but it needs to be improved 4/5
Overall I think this is a great app for budgeting. I love how I can see what's left to spend in each category. My only complaint is that the bank transactions don't download fast enough. Since I pay $99 for using the feature, I would expect it to work a little better. There are other apps out there that connect to my same bank faster and loads transactions faster. And for free. I love Dave Ramsey's program thus started using this app instead, but an update would be much appreciated!!!
Great - When it Works 3/5
When this app and service is working it's a great tool. However, I've had several times now where my transactions stop coming in and I have to contact support. This latest outage has been for 3 weeks. They gave me an extra month to my paid account but if you want me to depend on your product you have to make it dependable. Giving it one more week before moving back to Quicken.
By Layy lo
Keeps saying that i need to verify. I quit
By Molly Powers
I am so, completely pleased with this budgeting app. This is how they should teach this in schools. I believe it's ideal for the beginner and the pro, it's very well thought out. Well done!
