So easy to use! 4/5
First off I don't normally review anything but this app is great! Very easy to use and it's simple. My husband and I both have it on our phones so we both can keep it current as we spend. We do not pay the monthly fee and don't plan to. You can definitely use this app without it. Gets us talking about our spending on a regular basis and helps us curb the unnecessary. I took off a star because I do wish that there was a way to adjust the budgets without having to recalculate them. A simple take from one envelope and add to another one option would be awesome and would make it 5 stars for me. Otherwise this is a great app and has replaced mint for us.
Too expensive 1/5
By Poppy Paisley
$10 per month? Not worth it. At all.
The Best! 5/5
My wife and I use this app. This app makes budgeting easy. Nice interface and simple to use.
Good for basic budgeting 4/5
Easy to use but I wish you could export it from the app.
App not working 3/5
Worked great for me until I updated. Now when I try to enter any numbers, the field just shows up blank. Too bad, have to delete the app now and look for another that works.
Update 'left to budget' 4/5
So far this app seems promising however the one thing I would allow is for the 'left to budget' amount to adjust accordingly when you add 'spent' items. This way you know, as the month progresses, that your expected surplus has decreased.
Won't Update My Totals 1/5
I keep trying to update a miscellaneous total amount that I'm allocating for the category and it keeps defaulting it back to zero. Really annoying and it throws off my whole budget
Good basic budgeting app 4/5
Went through FPU and this has been a big help. Used to use YNAB and I prefer this one for sure. My one request would be for the app to recognize frequently typed Merchants and suggest options that you use often as you begin to type. For example, it would be great if it recognized that my typing in a "K" probably means I'm about to input either "Kroger" or "Kirkland's" and pops up a few of my frequently used options that I can then tap instead of typing out the whole name.
Love this app 5/5
I use this app and the online site everyday. I find it easy to use and I like being able to see what exactly I'm (over) spending on.
Not Helpful and Cost Me Even More Money 1/5
I downloaded this app hoping it would help me budget my money even better than I already do. Within two weeks I had fraudulent activity on one of my accounts and two weeks later fraudulent activity on a separate account. Both accounts were synced with this app to help budget but I guess I learned the hard way to never do that again!! Just stick to the old fashion way to budget and don't waste your money on this app.
I wish I could see the total of debt paid off during that month on my phone instead of from the desktop. Everything else is great though
Like the new Favorites feature 5/5
Use this app multiple times a day and usually just a few categories. Very glad they have added the favorites feature so I don't have to scroll down every time to find the category I need.
Please include calendar 4/5
This app is the only one I've found that's close to what I need. However, I would really appreciate the ability to start budgeting for the next month before the first day, like you can on the website. I use screen-reading software, and the website is almost entirely inaccessible on a PC, so I rely on the app instead. I have a paycheck schedule that depends on planning ahead, so I need the feature on a platform I can actually use. Thanks.
Needs more features from the website 2/5
App desperately needs more flexibility. I hate having to go to the desktop website in order to add/delete new categories, rearrange the order, reset budget to default, etc etc!
I love it! 5/5
I love this app, it lays out my budget my a few different ways that it's easy to tell what is what. The only think that I would like is to be able to add photos to transactions so that you can put receipts or pictures of what you purchased.
By Used to be great, help.
We love the app and it has helped us get more conscious of how we spend... would like it even better if you could see and print 3 columns: Planned, Spent, AND Remaining. I don't like that I have to click on each category to see how much is left or overspent. Thanks
Get offline data please :) 5/5
I love this app. It's perfect for updating and tracking on the go. I do most of my planning online with the desktop version, that's a lot more flexible than the phone app. I wish I could access my budget offline. Sometimes when I don't have internet I'd like to at least be able to look at the budget progress for the month even if I can't update until I enter service range.
I like it but.. 3/5
I really love this app. The only complaint I have is that I can't delete an expense or income... once it's been created, that's it.
SCAM - charges without consent! 1/5
I started using this app a few months ago and used it for about a week. I was just going through my iTunes subscriptions and realized I've been paying $10/month since I signed up. I've received no payment receipts or notifications that I was signed up.
Very simple, no limits 4/5
This app is exactly what I've been looking for for a long time. I love it! It follows the envelope system and does a great job of keeping things on track. Could you add it to the apple widgets to make it easier to add transactions quickly?
Not Practical 2/5
This app is too complex. IReconcile (which is not being supported any longer) is the VERY best budgeting app available. $20/year to sync between devices and keep a back up of all transactions. Budgets are super easy! Planning for the month is great and all, but I need to just enter my current checking account balance and get rolling. EveryDollar needs you to start on the 1st of any given month.
Major flaw: this app doesn't auto populate when you start typing and AUTOMATICALLY add your income/expense to a certain category. Also, when you pay to automatically download transactions from your bank, you still have to manually place each transaction into a category.
I love listening to The Show & Entreleadership Podcasts, so I'm not hating on Ramsey, Colman and the rest of the personalities. This app though?.... Y'all gotta create a simple version.
Just ok 3/5
It's just ok, it still needs work. I keep trying to love it. But I am definitely a DR supporter.
Takes some practice but easy to use 5/5
I really like this App. I set it up online (at my desktop) and then sign in on my phone and simply update my numbers as I go throughout the month.
Something's aren't as intuitive as you'd think -- like math is hard for me, I wish it had an within App calculator but that's easy enough to remedy by toggling between Calculator and the EveryDollar App on my phone.
I do wish a receipt capturing option was available. It would be nice to snap pictures of store receipts and be able to access/print them if need be down the line.
I have been using the free version since it came out and have no problem updating my numbers as I go.
The app is useful and I enjoy using it 5/5
I've never experienced and functional problems with the application and I've been using it consistently for a year or so. It's easy and intuitive, for the most part. Looking forward to improvements and other features.
Life Changer 5/5
This app has completely changed the way we handle money. We've been using mint.com app for the past couple of years and it just wasn't very reliable and not as user friendly. My husband and I both use it and for the first time this month we were able to stay on budget and save money! I highly recommend this app to anyone who is serious about budgeting and trying their best to stick with it. It's completely changed the way we track our spending.
Works well but no iPad support stinks 4/5
A lot of the issues I had with the app centered around pulling in bank transactions specifically from my bank. A recent update finally fixed that or I wouldn't have renewed my subscription but the continual lack of iPad support really stinks and using it through safari on the iPad doesn't work.
Bad app. There are much better options 1/5
Garbage. Complete money grab by Ramsey.
Mint app is totally free and has whole lot of options.
Keeps logging me out of my bank. Have been logged out for 4 days now. Emailed through the app requesting a call, have not been in touch with anyone.
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 >.<
Would like to have a demo mode. I, often, want to show the app and how it works to my friends. But I have to expose all of my personal earnings and spending, way to much info to be sharing with people.
WORST EXPERIANCE: Dave Ramsey Is A Hypocrite 1/5
I only downloaded this app becuase it was suggested durring Financial Peace University a Dave Ramsey Course that gives tips on money managment. I tried the app that advertises itself as "free." I made sure I was not being charged. Then my account was hit with a $99 charge. Thankfully it failed to process, but after 2.5 hours of searching and trying to unlink/opt-out/downgrade and EVERY OTHER VERSION OF "IM NOT GOING TO PAY MONEY FOR THIS," I still cannot get unconnected from this *curse-word* service. I have googled and seached every page of the help screens, sent emails tried to find a number to call, all with NO SUCCESS. The step-by-step guide shows photo walk-throughs of where to "cancel auto renewal" and yet, those buttons/tabs DO NOT EXIST in the app. I have tried the Desktop/mobile sites and the apps and I STILL CANNOT GET OUT OF THIS BLEEEEEPING AGREEMENT THAT I DID NOT MAKE!
Do yourself a favor, if you need help with money management, AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS!!! Dave, I used to trust that you were helping people, but THIS experiance, RUINED every good will I once had for you or your organization. Financial apps above all others need to build with transparency and give their users the ability to walk away if they are unsatisfied. Instead, you have taken my information and are holding me hostage. Stop seducing people into this TRAP.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS CRAP.
Best Budgeting App out there! 5/5
By Tanner Wince
The EveryDollar app is so easy to use. My wife and I both have the app downloaded and we log in under the same name so we can both manage it. Categories are easy to change, expenses and income are easy to add, and it has helped us maximize every dollar that passes through our hands. It helps us pay down our debt and keep control of our money. We love it!!
A Life Saver 5/5
I haven't used the upgraded plus version, so I haven't had any issues at with the app. I love that I can track my income and expenses. Simple to use across an iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPad, and computer!
Doesn't work. 1/5
I loved this app during the trial and went ahead and started paying for it. It constantly crashes and doesn't stay connected to my bank. Really sad about this and would like my $99 dollars back if nothing is going to change.
Love the app 4/5
The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5, is that I would love to see the progress of the baby steps on the app, which is now only available on the desktop. Every time I login to the desktop the page of the baby steps gives me a great boost to stay the course. I would like to carry that in my pocket as well.
Easy, Simple, and convenient...what more could you ask for!!!!!! 5/5
By W.W.W. Adventurer
The app itself is very simple to navigate and set up. Besides the major benefits of budgeting this app really helps you to stay on track and see where all your money is going. I have recommended this app to family and friends without hesitation.
Loved the trial, then paid and it hasn't worked 2/5
By half marathoner125
I loved this app during the trial. And as much as I didn't want to spend money while trying to save money and pay off debt, I felt the app was well worth the $99/year.
Shortly after purchasing the subscription, things went wrong. First, it stopped pulling in the transactions that I had been able to see. Contacted customer support and was told to delete bank account and delete app. Then reinstall and re-add bank account. Well then it started pulling in every single transaction on 12 accounts I am a signer for (5 kids plus business plus mortgage, etc). This forced me to delete 53 of the 54 transactions that it pulled in today. What a waste of time!
I'm sure it was just coincidence but I wouldn't have purchased if it happened prior so bummed I spent the money.
Great potential but unreliable 2/5
The app has great potential but it can't seem to stay connected to my banks, which largely defeats my purpose of using the app. I'm happy to pay the monthly subscription fee, but not for something unreliable.
Great idea but... 1/5
By Insert nickname (here)
The ideas behind this app are great but there is a major problem. The app doesn't work! As of right now I'm stuck on a page with pie charts with no way to add or edit anything and no way to back out. This renders the app totally useless.
Great app, great froundatiom 4/5
I love this app. I put my complete budget in it every month. I write it all out on paper but then enter it in the app. What I would really like is an allocated spending feature that would allow me to further break down my budget to what is actually assigned to each pay check. Sometimes I forget and get confused and I'm not gonna carry my paper form every where. Otherwise this app is great.
The more you use this App the better your finances will be. 5/5
I've use this app for almost one year now and I love it! When you are intentional with paying off your debt, and living below your means using this tool every day, every week, and every month you will know where Every Dollar goes. My only request would be for the app to have an off-line mode so that you can continue to work in the app when you don't have Internet connection.
Missing one star for one missing feature 4/5
By Newborn momma
My husband and I use this app every month and we love it. We have it synced on our phones so we are up to date on exactly what we have in each "envelope" even if we are not together while shopping. Much more convenient than getting cash out of the bank and using real envelopes. The only feature missing in my opinion is the roll over feature. If I wanted to save some money in my spending money category I would like the option to carry it over to the next month. Otherwise this app works perfectly for our family and needs.
Great app, minor improvement needed 5/5
This app is VERY useful!! As of now, the only thing I don't like is that you cannot delete or edit name or item within the category. You can add new ones but if you added something to the wrong section, you can't delete it to put it in the right one.
I absolutely love this financing tool, and would highly recommend it for anyone looking to have transparency and set financial goals. It's easy and intuitive.
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.
