Beyond spectacular! - This app is so fantastic- as with many other reviewers, I've tried other budgeting apps like Mint. But this is the only app that actually works. It incentives me to spend less money on some days, have extra to spend on the weekends. Thank you for not adding too many bells and whistles!

Life Changing - I am the WORST with finances and I've tried other apps, including Mint, which I used for a week and quit. But this app?? It's amazing. I can't speak highly enough of how much this app is getting my life together. I'm aggressively saving, paying off all of my bills and I know exactly what I get to spend a day. I will never NOT use this. I hope it's here forever.

Helps you be Accountable - This app turns my financial life into a game that I feel I can win. Daily Budget really works and it's core design sets it apart from other apps.

Easy to use

Great app, uncomplicated, which is what I need if I am to carry on using it. Sets you a daily spend and savings target. Early days yet, but I think I will definitely stick with it.

I have been using this app for a few months now and had a problem after the last update of it crashing out when I tried to use the analysis, but that was soon sorted out.
Love this app, it is helping me to stick to my budget and save money. I particularly like the big spend were you can spread the cost of of something over a period of days, weeks, or months, for instance, l have just renewed my car insurance with a cash payment, a big spend, but I will not need to make this payment again for the next 365 days, so it works out how much you pay per day, and spreads the cost over the year. This is really helpful in knowing what your total annual spend is.
Unlike other money saving apps this one works because you use it daily, and can see your spendings on a daily basis, if you keep within your daily budget or below it, you feel good and in command of your life, it really does make you think about what you buy and if you really need it.
We did overspend at Christmas like most people, so I am trying to get back into the green again. Should be there by the end of January.
I have set a big spend of saving £1000 by the end of July to help pay for a holiday, and l feel fairly confident that we can get there.
Again this is a great app, well worth the money.

A breath of fresh air amongst other dreary budgeting apps

I’m a busy working mum, running a consultancy business with not much time to spare. Due to the nature of my work, I’m paid daily by some clients and weekly by others. I have tried a multitude of money / budgeting apps and found most require a huge amount of time and effort in order to accurately assist you and most are built around a monthly salary which is no use to me at all. This app is in a league of its own. Simple and easy to use, works with daily, weekly and monthly incomes, takes barely 3 or 4 mins of my day to update and has a wealth of tools and customisations to use/choose from. I’m so impressed I gladly paid the one off fee (not a subscription like many other greedy companies). Amazing work dev team and creators! This app is a delight - thank you!

Amazing app - graphs need updating

Update Feb 2019

Still a good app, however despite being “coming” for a year now, the graphs are still basic and have not changed. The amounts get skewed and become unreadable and the savings over a year graphs does not plot the same value for the current month as the projected savings for the month view. Also the most recent update has made it slightly unsayable and the app crashes a lot more now. As I say, these problems shouldn’t deter from the app, but it would be nice if the graphs were actually sorted as opposed to forever being “coming in the next release”
Have to say this is a brilliant app; the UI is clean and slick and whilst it’s a simple concept and execution, you will find that it will encourage your saving habits - the key is the simplicity ensures it remains engaging.
The only reason why I have refrained from awarding the full compliment of stars is that I feel that the paid-for graphs are lacking somewhat in their substance, relevance and design. They don’t seem to have been created with the same level or care as the rest of the app (simple things such as text alignment, spacing etc.), and they don’t have the ability to “drill-down” into further detail in the sections (i.e. I would like to see what constitutes “food” expenditure for the month as I enter “Lunch” and “Dinner” as separate entries under the same category).

We are terribly sorry for this delay – we have greatly improved the analysis graphs in our latest version (v.5.1) and would be happy if you try it and share your feedback with us at support@dailybudget.de!
