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.

Simple and easy to use for daily budget

Developer has done a good job for the app. The app helps you recognize how much you can spend in a day, literally. This is after taking into account you salary and less your other monthly expenses (rent, car loan etc).
Helps you keep track of how much you can spend on the day itself. Any excess not spend today is rolled over to tomorrow.
However it would be nice if it can have a budget allocation for categories (i.e petrol/food/entertainment) so that you can see how much left to spend on those categories rather than all one lump sump in a day to spend.
I’m a premium user. FYI.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your detailed review! Simplicity is the number one value for us and we are doing our best to keep our app as simple as possible for those users who failed at exactly this typical budgeting approach. We believe that having a budget for each separate category can be unnecessary complex (and stressful!) for many users. So when you use the app, and stick to the daily amount displayed by it (regardless of what you spend it on), you will be able to save the amount you wished for. Taking away this categorical budgeting makes decision making and controlling immediate spending behavior much easier. If the number on the Balance screen says $10, then you can spend that $10 on anything! There is nothing else to think about! Users often praise the app for this simplicity.

Another problem of categorical budgeting is its ambiguity. Let's say you spent $20 for a dinner with friends. Should this be categorized as food or socializing? Actually, $8 of that $20 were spent on drinks. Should it be splitted, $8 for alcohol, and $12 for food? Does any of this matter? Not really. How you label that expense doesn't change that fact.

Nevertheless, we appreciate hearing your feedback. We'll definitely keep it in mind!

Great app

This is a great app to keep you in check of your spendings and not overspend. Essentially this app helps you to maintain an optimum daily spendings so you'll have some savings at the end of your cycle or enough money saved up for your goal.
Just check in with the app to see the amount that you can spend for the day. As long as you're truthful with your spendings and not spending more than the daily budget, you'll be able to have some money saved up! It's really helpful!

My essential app for budgeting

Easy, beautiful and simple to use. Been happily using it for 7 years now.

Their team is very responsive towards any feedback too. When I suggested that the app has a search function for me to search for specific past transaction, they implemented it not long after.

Overall, a great app for budgeting made by a great team that truly wants to make the best budgeting app.
