Just one suggestion then it’ll be perfect 4/5
Over to the right where you input the amounts regarding bills etc...can you guys add the total amount. I know it’s quick mad, but I would like to look over and actually see the hard number that I’m spending on “transportation” or “lifestyle” ...other than that, great app!
New UI is less efficient 2/5
I can’t see the spent amount anymore without clicking into the monthly income. This is inconvenient. Please let us have the option to make this possible
Update fixed, but the app is not well integrated with iOS 4/5
I’m guessing the developer is unifying the codebase and that is making the app look and feel like an Android app. I understand the desire to save on development; However, the experience is inconsistent with many iOS apps. Please don’t be clever, it doesn’t need it. Consider letting the user decide on the experience if you really want to head down that road. I’m thankful for the way it works and have used it heavily. I just don’t understand the problem they are trying to solve with the significant UI changes. Save some money and keep it simple. Budgeting should be an easy thing right? More people might do it.
Does this app still offer a free version? 2/5
Trying to use the app with no luck. Signed up but says it can’t find my budget now.
Thank you for the update back to normal! 5/5
By Josh paddock
This has been the best budgeting app for years, thank you for fixing the changes! Back to an incredible budgeting app. I’ve looked at all the budgeting apps out there and nothing compares to this one. Blows away Mint. I love having to manually put my transactions in each category. Makes you accountable and aware of what you are spending at all times. Allows you to plan ahead as well. The flexibility of modifying the budget and adding categories is a major bonus. Lee it up! Love the new baby steps app as well!
Thank you for bringing the previous version back!! 5/5
By MORE ANGRY!!!!
I love this app and use it every day. The latest version had some updates that made it really hard to use and confusing. Within a few days of posting a review the company had contacted me and had removed the changes. I imagine other people had the same trouble I did with the new version but it was great to see such an immediate and decisive response. This app really is great and can change your financial situation.
So I loved this app and they put out an update that was horrible but to the companies credit they listened and took out those changes and the app runs beautifully now. Thank you for caring about the customer.
Huge help! 4/5
By mr geeky gadget
I love the app, I love how easy it it to use, and it’s definitely helping me to chase down my financial goals. The ONE thing I really wish it had was a way to budget weekly in addition to monthly...
The interface on this application is improving. It is a great application. There some things that could be reworked. I don’t like how the planned amount field is display in the single category view. It’s too small and didn’t respond well when I tried to adjust the cursor within the field.
Previously, I wrote a rather scathing review of the UI. It was unfair. Please accept my apologies.
Confusing New Format 5/5
Previously I wrote a review about a recent update that was made, preventing us from viewing the listed planned, spent and remaining budgeted amounts. I’m happy to see that the creators of the app listened to the opinions of customers reviews. This app is amazing, and it deserves every star. Thank you for considering our voices!
I used to love it .... 2/5
I love the app layout and concepts and I used to really live it’s functionality .... I rejoined a couple of months ago, paying for a full year up front as that was the only option. Consistently I’ve received duplicate transactions and I have to refresh many times and try again and again to get any transactions to load. I also consistently get the message that it can’t connect to my account.
Best App Ever 5/5
I love this app. It’s so easy to use and I’ve been able to get a handle on my spending! I was doing OK before, but now I’m totally in control of my money.
I’ve used this for years 5/5
I don’t know if I love the most recent updates, but I have used this app for years and appreciate having a financial snapshot easily accessible on my phone.
This app is convenient- however it is SLOW to update your recent purchases... and trying to keep up with a budget while waiting for your purchase history from 2days ago to update to the app is annoying.
$10.83/month ?! No, thank you! 1/5
I am a FPU grad and was debt free for a few years until life happened and have to start over again. Heard great things about this app after inputting all my budget in I learned that I would have to manually input all my transactions in for it to be free. To charge me $10.83/month for a budget app just to have my bank account transactions linked (which looks like it is hit or miss based on other reviews)? No thanks! I am actually very disappointed that Dave charges so much for his app. I realize he is a business but come on we are trying to get out of debt here not have another subscription to add to the budget line. YNAB is even cheaper at $84/yr and will even let you try it free for 34 days! I think I will just stick to my free Mint account.
Worked great ... at first 1/5
Worked great for about a week. Then it quit synchronizing transactions. Kinda useless without that feature. I put in numerous support requests that went unanswered. After two weeks I got a reply ... “we don’t know when it will be resolved”. I expect more, especially from something endorsed by Dave Ramsey.
Random sign outs 3/5
App is really nice but it will randomly sign me out and redirects me to another website. It’s very annoying and made me stop using it in the past
Game Changing 5/5
This budgeting app has been a game changer for our family. It’s user friendly, simple and fast. It’s helping us know and understand where “every” dollar is going on our road to financial freedom!
Loving the app 5/5
Really fell in love with this app.
Super wish I didn’t have to go to the web to do a fund transfer and can’t wait for dark mode support.
Nothing works! 1/5
I would love to like this app, especially since I paid for it! But it won’t connect ANY of my accounts.
Terrible Update 1/5
I like the progress circles they added and that’s it. It’s now much more difficult to edit anything and when I went to add income it tried to flip it to be an expense. I’m not sure who ok’d this update but I’d rather go back to the old version than use this.
User Friendly 5/5
App is very simple to use compared to Mint App. Now to just stick to the budget
Income Section..bad update 2/5
The newest version of the app really messed up the formats and makes this app more difficult to use and actually down right inaccurate. When I try to add income received transaction it actually records the amount as a negative on my budget instead of a negative now. Please fix!!
Free version works best 4/5
By Rainbow charmer
We have been using the EveryDollar app for about 3 years now. We spent the first year on the free version. Then tried the paid version for a year, and reverted this past year to the free version.
The paid version does bring your transactions in, but it’s so delayed that it became really hard to keep things organized. I like to track everything the day I spend the money. The paid version will let you do that but then the app pushes the transaction through again after it clears your bank and you have to remember to go back and delete one of the transactions. Or you wait until they come through and hope you don’t miss anything.
In general the app is simple to use. It’s nice that they have added the ability to edit funds in the app and not just on the desktop version.
Wishlist for the app:
- Keep the transactions in chronological order rather than alphabetizing the transactions in per day (ie when I grocery shop on Sunday, the transactions are all listed alphabetically instead of in the order in which I entered them).
- Reports would be super helpful.
- Ability to move a category into another area (ie something in household really should be savings, but other than deleting it and it’s history altogether and adding a new one there is no way to move it to the right area).
- our 401k is taken out before income comes to us, therefore we will never reach BS4 completion on the app because it can’t see that we are in fact saving 15% for retirement. We also don’t have kids, so we will never complete BS5. And for whatever reason it cannot tell that we don’t have a mortgage anymore, so evidently we can’t get past BS6 on the app either. So despite the fact we are on BS7, the app indefinitely says we are only completed with BS3. It’s annoying. I know it doesn’t actually matter. But would be nice to see that we did in fact reach the next steps.
Too Expensive 1/5
$130 per year is too expensive when the goal is to help you save money. Banks like PNC have online banking and an app that do a lot of this for you once you set it up.
Who OK’d this update for release??? 1/5
The new update for iPad does not have an income section. There is no way to add any income, adjust your income or view the breakdown amounts of your total monthly income. I also don’t like that piggy bank icon for funds is now a light shade of grey. It’s so light and tiny you can barely tell it’s a piggy bank. The old version let you know quickly which items were funds. What do they have against the color blue?? I’m glad I still have the old version on my Android phone. This iPad version is just a mess now.
New update is terrible! 1/5
I hate the new update! I can no longer easily see how much money we have remaining for the month in our total budget. My husband and I both dislike not being able to swipe through to our spent and remaining categories. Please change it back to how it was before! It was a great app and now we are considering not using it anymore.
By J.D. Adams
This app is amazing once you get the hang of it. They literally thought of everything when they built this!
iPad App? 4/5
Like having the ability to use and access this app from my iPhone and love using the desktop version on my computer. When do you anticipate releasing an app for iPads?
New Release Removes Convenience 3/5
This new version does not allow me to see total remaining budget for the month at a glance. I now have to click on monthly budget, then swipe twice just to see how much I have total left for the month. Please tell me this was an error in this release or there’s a setting somewhere to see this at a glance like in the previous versions. Opening the app and immediately knowing the total remaining spend for the month was the single most useful function of previous versions.
The new update on the app had made it impossible to make changes to my income. As someone the makes money on the side for goods and services...I now can’t add income and increase expenses in the categories. Unless, I’m a dork and haven’t figured it out yet. I loved this app until the new update release. #nothappy
Tip: Better Rate under Apple Subscriptions Menu 5/5
No question, this is a 5-star app with every feature you need to create and manage a flexible budget that you can actually stick to and visualize where every dollar goes. 100% recommend. Under Subscriptions in your Apple settings app, you can select a cheaper rate or a monthly option if the default yearly rate is too much or too long of a commitment for you!
Did you mean to wreck a great app? 1/5
Fix it ASAP please. You really should notify us when you’re making drastic changes. It was payday and I couldn’t enter my pay check amount. Where did you put the planned, received section?
Change it back 1/5
I’ve been using this app for a year. It used to be awesome, but they keep jacking around with it now and making it more difficult to use. Things that used to be quick to edit now require 3-4 steps. I’m about to start looking at other budget app options.
Debt snowball 4/5
By They took all my nicknames
I’d like to see a debt snowball tool on here where it can sync and help you plan to knock out the debt as you make payments so that it is automatic. It would be great to include an option for interest to. Debt is the most challenging but if a component to this could make it easier it would make this an all you need app.
So easy and thorough 5/5
I really like this app a lot and have enjoyed dreaming about how quickly my debts are going to get stomped out with the debt snowball process. I just recently noticed that when I am entering in a due date for an item it won’t let me enter in the next month’s date. I have to enter it for the current month even though it has passed already. Other than that, it works beautifully. Thanks so much!
Lastest update BIG FAIL 1/5
Was using it for the past month, latest update changed the look and feel but broke the budget setting parts, you cannot do the things you could in the previous version, all the help files are out of date and don’t reflect the current version. Took a seemingly great application and broke it to make it unusable. Now off to find a replacement. Great quality control, folks!
Bad update 2/5
I used to LOVE the app, recommended it to everyone. Not anymore. Difficult to navigate.
New update brings problems 3/5
Firstly, I love the app, I’ve used it for going on 3 years now. But this new update removed the “planned” “spent” and “remaining” tabs. While the new updates that have been added are good, there was no need to replace these tabs, I found them very useful and used them regularly, not having them is going to be frustrating. I’d like them added back please.
Wonderful budgeting tool 5/5
It’s the only thing that has helped us follow a budget. In conjunction with the FPU, it works
Perfect budget creator for the beginner 5/5
Easy to use and reliable
Bank Outage 2/5
Started FPU and EveryDollar came with my subscription. I really do love EveryDollar and my husband and finally got our budget down pat and then.... BAM! My bank (SchoolsFirst Federal CU) decides to update their security and will no longer be compatible with most third party apps. My bank told me that apps like EveryDollar and Mint did not meet their new security perimeters. They suggest we use Quicken, but I hate being tied to my computer and their mobile app is horrible. I am so upset because we can no longer use the EveryDollar Plus that we got through FPU that we paid for. I hope they work at getting our bank back. Myself and so many of my teacher friends are upset by the outage. I hope that EveryDollar works hard at getting back the banks that drop them. I hate that I wasted money only to be dropped after 3 months.
IPad Version Needed 4/5
I agree with the thousands of others that this tool is fantastic! Hoping to see an iPad compatible or specific version soon!!!
The new update it terrible
Finally an easy budget tool! 5/5
I LOVE this app. Been using it for 6 months. Makes budgeting easy and you definitely see where you’re money is going. My favorite thing has been being able to see any extra money and giving it a purpose-pay off loans, save for something. Zero based budgeting is amazing. I’ve used Mint for years but this app is much better for the budgeting part of finances.
Went from a great to a good 4/5
Previous version had a remaining balance view available. A total remaining balance. But that’s missing in this update. I use that total to match the total in my bank account and the app.
When will this app be iPad compatible? 4/5
I love this app for my iPhone, but I’d love to see an iPad version.
Life Saver 5/5
Shows me where my money goes
Don’t like the new update 4/5
I have been using EveryDollar since the day it was launch and rely on the app constantly and I have recently started using the Financial Peace app too. But with the newest update to both, when they sync together, the financial peace app changes all my payments that I have made towards debt in everydollar every time I close out of the apps. I split my debt payments between my weekly paychecks and the other income I have coming in order to stay on top of the crazy minimum payments that some credit cards have.
It would be nice not having to go into the app every time I open it just to spend 10+ minutes changes numbers back to where I had them
