Great App!! 5/5
I have read other reviews on this app and thought myself that it was not going to be a useful tool. However, I reached out to customer service with my concerns after experiencing the issue others did with transactions not importing. Customer service was EXCELLENT!! They explained to me that most banks only send over transactions to the app once a day. This typically does not occur on weekends or bank holidays. After learning this, I know now that transactions come over once daily. The app is working great and is an effective and useful budgeting tool.
The worst financial app ever! 1/5
Very limited functionality. My bank transactions sometimes download but usually do not for days. I was excited to use this for my debt snowball, but now this app just causes me to waste an additional $10 per month. I love Dave Ramsey, so I'm surprised he promotes this garbage app.
Will be cancelling subscription before next renewal.
Don't waste your money on a plus membership 1/5
For the last 3 consecutive months posted transactions from my bank have just stopped flowing over to my Everydollar PLUS account. I wait for days for tech support to reset my account then end up entering all of the transactions manually. You can do that with the free version! The problems began after the last software upgrade. They keep blaming my bank but as you can see from the other reviews, the problem is rampant. I am working to get a refund now and will go to an application that actually works. Dave Ramsey should really stop endorsing this bad product...
Great Budgeting App! 5/5
This app is awesome. It's super easy to use, and has helped my wife and I manage our money successfully for the last 2 years. I don't leave reviews on apps, but this one is awesome and it deserves a great review!
We added our bank when we started using it, and had a few problems syncing at first. We reached out to the support team and they helped us get things fixed. Transactions come in now, and we drag and drop them to the budget item they belong to. I hardly ever get to drag and drop transactions because my wife ALWAYS gets there first! :-) This app has definitely helped us out tremendously, and we're making good progress on paying off our debt, and not living paycheck to paycheck.
**For people leaving bad reviews of the app because your transactions didn't come in, let the support team know. They can't help you unless you write in, and a review in the App Store won't help your transactions come in... So, send in a help request and they'll be able to help you get it fixed like they helped us get our accounts fixed.**
Transactions are too slow, but good otherwise 3/5
The idea behind this app is wonderful! I absolutely will not manually track my debit card transactions, so this is a life saver. Purchases made from my bank account pop up in the app to be sorted into my budget items. So great! However, it takes FOREVER!! It kinda rains on my budgeting parade when I excitedly log on 3 times a day waiting to update my budget (how am I doing? Did that last H-E-B run put me over my grocery budget?) ... and there are zero transactions listed. Over. And over. And over. Boo. I have to wait up to two days for all my purchases to pop up. I still use it, and I mostly like it, but it needs work.
2 separate ratings.. 4/5
By Sean Petersen
Read enough of these reviews and you realize most of these people are mad in regards to every dollar plus
I would rate EveryDollar(all the components you get with free version) a 4.5, great app. However I would rate the paid-for plus a 3 star.
it may seem trivial to complain about the length of time it takes to update your bank transactions, but you need to realize that it is a key component of the "plus" option. Asking someone to fork over $100/year for such a little return should mean the added feature is perfect.
Example: there was one point where by the time all of my transactions updated/"populated" I had 23 that I had to sort all at once.
It's ok 2/5
This app has a lot of good qualities and takes time to understand. It didn't make sense to me at first. I don't understand why you have to pay for a subscription when other apps provide same service for free. And why does it take 24 hours to see the days transactions? The data should be instantaneous so I can properly manage my budget. This could be a great tool if they add other services other customers have suggested and fix the bugs that hold the app down.
I'm currently unable to use this app because it wants me to verify my email, but when I click on the link to verify it takes me to a page that wants me to download the app (which I've already done). I've been through this a few dozen times and I'm ready to delete. Please fix this.
Absolutely love it 5/5
By Cordell, Houston TX
After years of trying to get on the same page as my wife, this app has finally helped us to make it happen! I'm the spreadsheet nerd that spent hours every week tracking and planning. This app is easy to use and convenient enough for a free spirit such as her to watch and record spending. Finally we have an effective tool to communicate with each other about budgeting and spending.
Wish I could've used this. 1/5
Won't let me verify my account that I made. Keeps saying I need to check my email and follow instructions. Must have done this 10 times, after going insane I figured I'd just post this review and hope for better days.
I love this app! It has helped me organize my spending and I have found that I have more money to put towards saving than I ever imagined. Love this app.
Not as advertised 1/5
This auto transaction feature is slow to receive transactions. It duplicates. I've had to update my banking every time I try to use this feature. Not going to continue the paid version. I'm faster doing the transactions manually on a daily basis. Love the app! Love every dollar!
Problems signing up 1/5
By Faithful Grouponer
Sent several emails and still can't get on with the Free trial. Problems with connecting. Only way to contact someone is through email and you get the same automated response. My card was charged 3 times. Dave Ramsey, this is a disaster!
Stop complaining 4/5
By That Guy that checked
Everyone giving bad reviews because "taking control of YOUR financial well being" isn't automated for you by someone else well enough so that money tells you where it has gone...
"it's not auto-posting and deducting to tell me what my budget balance is 😢" ...
Don't be stupid, right it down, better yet just create the this app yourself using Microsoft excel.. pretty simple stuff guys.. addition and subtraction
Needs lots of work 2/5
Can't get this to drag and drop, Love DR, but this whole app needs a overhaul. So want to ❤it. 😳
Best budget app 5/5
I only use the free version which is enough for me. I love that it syncs with my wife's phone so she can enter in her transactions. Also as I'm working through my debt snowball it keeps track of the pay down for me. A must app if you are trying to use the "Total Money Makeover". It's very easy to use through my MacBook and through the app.
Loved it at first 1/5
I found this app yesterday and absolutely loved it! I spent all day setting it up and connecting all my accounts. It worked perfectly! Best app out there as far as all the functions and how easy it is to use......BUT this morning I purchased a few things using debit and went home and the transactions would not populate! I tried deleting all my accounts and added them back. I signed out and back in. I did everything! No luck! Luckily I am on the 14-day trial. I will not be using this app since it is not functioning the way it is suppose to for $8.95/month!
Please please please fix this website/app as this was amazing until I experienced these issues today!
I would say, hold off on using until the bugs are fixed! You can manually enter in everything but the reason I loved it so much was because it automatically populated for you!
Finally did it! 5/5
This app helped me do what I never could before: stick to a budget. Great app!
Don't pay for it 2/5
The free version is as far as you'll want to go with it. The free version is great and gets the job done, but you have to upload transactions manually. I am a huge Dave Ramsey fan, and typically love any product/service they provide, but the performance of the Plus (that you pay for) version is extremely poor. Transactions rarely sync to the app as they should. I have tried it off and on using free trials for the last couple of years and each time is so frustrating. It actually seems to have gotten worse. Not to mention, it's freaking $99 per year. Not worth your money. As Dave would say, "Buyer Beware".
Terrible Support 1/5
I used the app and online budgeting system for several months. After an update on their side I could never connect to my bank again. Spent almost two months waiting on support department to fix. I had to contact them every time. Weeks would pass and I would never hear from them. Pushed them to refund my fees. They refunded the prorated amount. Support was terrible!!!! I do not recommend.
Very clunky and lacks functionality 2/5
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.
Rip Off from DR 1/5
I'm a massive DR fan. He's a great man and above this App
It's two or three times more expensive than comparable Apps.
Worse yet, he constantly says it's free.
Easy to setup and use 5/5
This app is the easiest thing out there for managing a zero based budget.
Budgeting Saves Lives 5/5
sweet app. It really helps me keep track of my spending. Everyone should use an app like this!
Not user friendly 1/5
I was attempting to put my budget into the app such as phone bill and gas, but it would pop up saying no transactions for this. Also trying to navigate from screen to screen wasn't easy either. I think I'll stick with mu excel sheet and mint app.
Good....when it works 3/5
EveryDollar Plus user who likes the app when it works. EVERY time there is an update, however, there are bank syncing issues related to the app. It's like clockwork. Not sure why this continues after each update but some more beta testing internally would be recommended before releasing future updates.
Best budget app I've tried 5/5
Since budgeting in EveryDollar I have been able to pay of $40k! I thought I would hate budgeting but EveryDollar has made it so easy! I really like the feeling of control it gives me. Before I really never knew how much I was spending. Now I know ahead of the month what I will spend on what. It's great!
Almost Perfect 3/5
This app is simple and easy to use. After reviewing almost every budget app in the App Store I finally came across this one. I enjoy the simplicity of interface and it's almost perfect. My only complaint right now is it does not seem to sync with the web version. Also, some of the features of the web version are not available in the app, such as setting a goal for the Emergency Fund, establishing balances & payoff for debt.
Small issue 4/5
I love the service. And the app is great. I only have one small issue. I have the EveryDollar Plus service, and the transactions to not update quickly at all. I have to basically update my login info every time just to force the transactions to update from my bank. And I don't have any special login stuff from my bank like 2-step verification or security questions or anything. Don't know if this is on the developers end or not but a fix for this would be awesome!
I used to love it but now no.. also features needed 2/5
I have a loyal Dave Ramsey follower for several years and he has helped me pay off quite a bit of debt.. still at too! I used the online debt snowball and then moved to EveryDollar when it was released. At first I loved it! But then with the new bank connection software, it has really gone downhill.. have to reconnect my bank account every 48-72 hours for transactions to even appear. Before they would show up within minutes of the actual transaction.. now it takes sometimes days. Support told me that accounts are only updated every 24 hours which is awful!! Seriously considering not renewing my membership
For added features.. please add the debt snowball tools from the old old website. It was really helpful to see the charts and grafts and the payments every month to to watch your debt shrink!
Will not even let me log in! I even tried resetting the password and it won't send the email to me! Then as a last resort I tried to make a new account and I can't!
Budget from Paper or Excel to Phone 5/5
By Ryan T1591
This is the best app that I have found that allows you to set up a monthly budget like you would on paper or in excel. It allows you to plan out your spending in a common sense way for months to come. Easy manipulation of budget items and spending amounts.
Can't complete signup 1/5
Downloaded the app, created an account, and can't complete the signup process. The confirmation email directs to a webpage to download the app in the App Store. Very frustrating, deleted this app.
Decent app 3/5
This is not a bad app. You can work around the bugs with a little common sense. When you verify email and it asks you to download the app again, just exit out and go to the app you've already downloaded. This is not bad for someone that's not Microsoft excel savvy. But if you know excel, you can build a spreadsheet just like this with the formulas to calculate and you don't really need the app. Anyway, not bad for someone that can't do their own....
Why does the app not let me verify my email? It takes me to a page telling me to download the app! Any suggestions?
Great app! 5/5
Won't Allow Me to Verify Email 1/5
I can't set up an account because when I try to verify my email from the link sent by the app, a page pops up with a link to download the app, which I've already done. I've tried shutting down the app and resending the verification email with no luck. Deleting now.
Great app! 5/5
I love this app and use it every day. I have my bank account synced up and it has worked flawlessly, even when switching banks. This is the single tool that helped me get my budget going!
Won't sync to bank account 3/5
I like this app a lot...when it works properly. I paid the $99 fee to sync it to my bank account but it has not synced in days. It worked fine before they updated the app a few weeks ago. PLEASE fix this...
No stars if I could! 1/5
By Olivia <3<3
Absolutely ridiculous, download the app, sign up then it tells me to confirm my email. No problem, except it just keeps sending me back to the App Store to get the app instead of automatically opening the app. Thanks for all the help with my budget 🖕🏻
Great tool 5/5
I love the App! It does everything it should and I haven't had any issues with it.
Best budgeting app I've ever used 5/5
I haven't had any bug issues. I've used the app for a year and have only raved about this app! I set up my budget on a computer and then I use my phone app as a guide.
It doesn't automatically sync anymore... 1/5
I've had this app for months, almost half a year. It was working so well and then they updated it and now the app does not automatically sync bank accounts so I manually have to do it, which would be fine if that even worked, but it crashes on more than a regular basis. I have to delete and re-download it to make it work again almost every time, and then it still takes a couple of days for all of my transactions to carry over and by that time it is time to try and re-sync it again. What a mess. So far it was worth the money in the beginning but now it is not. I love how it works when it works, but it's absolutely not working anymore, and I spent $100/year to allow it to sync when it doesn't do that anymore, I almost want to escalate for a refund. How frustrating.
LOVE PROGRAM, HOWEVER APP ISN'T THE BEST 3/5
I love this budgeting tool! It really has been a total blessing for our money issues!
However, I am so frustrated with the app! First, there is no app for the I-pad, which like many others, I now use exclusively. The option of installing the I-phone version works, yet has many problems with it.
Plus, the accounts say they have been updated, not the case. Sometimes it takes days to sync with my bank information. I sure don't mind the yearly cost, it's worth "every dollar". Just hope things get better with the app.!
This program would get five stars, if it wasn't for app problems. Acts like a government program, not a Dave Ramsey program! That's not good!
Good app....when it works 2/5
I have had this app for about 2 months and I pay the ten dollars a month extra to have it sync to my bank account. I love the app except for about the last week it has not sent over any transactions. It appears there is a bug with the software. Dave, get your IT people to get a fix for this quick! If it does not work for the rest of the month you should really give a refund. When this app works it's awesome and worth the 10 dollars but don't download until they have a fix for this. Not worth it. If this is not fixed by Jan 1 I will be looking for a new budgeting tool. I have sent an email in to notify of the problem but I have received no correspondence. Look elsewhere for the time being. 5 stars when it work, 2 since it doesn't.
Cannot use 1/5

Never ending loop of "can't sign in - confirm email"...was never able to log in
Need computer to verify email 1/5
Couldn't login. Tried to verify multiple times (using phone). Finally tried to verify and then login on a computer... now I can get into the app.
Perfect budget 5/5

No more papers of numbers all over the place. No more wondering why my calculations are off. Shows all my overages and extra money love it
