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.

What’s New

Version 5.1

Hi everyone,

We are very excited to share with you the completely redesigned Analysis section!

The new graphs can give you insights into your spending behavior, for example:
- Which days you over-spent or stayed within your budget
- What categories you spend the most
- Hidden recurring costs that add up over time!

IMPORTANT: If you use sync, please kindly install this version on ALL devices. Otherwise, your data won’t synchronize because we changed the data structure.

If you have any questions, feedback, or requests, just drop us a line at!

Last not but least, a big thanks to all the beta testers!!

Love this app!

We’ve tried so many different money tracking apps & methods over the years (ynab, mint, mvelopes, pen & paper budgeting, cash only with physical envelopes etc)...none have worked as well for us as this one. Love the simplicity of it!

There is something about having a bottom line number of how much we can spend (and a commitment to not spend more than that amount)...this app is making us think about our money in a totally different way. This app is not for someone who wants to micromanage their money (in theory you could with the app if you set it up that way though), but is definitely for you if you want an easy way to know how much you do or don’t have to spend.

My husband & I have found a happy medium with this app (he’s the spreadsheet guy, I’m the one who struggles to track much of anything), he tracks our big bills with a written list, this tracks all else.

Favorite budgeting app for over a year

I spent a long time looking for an app that was right for me, mainly something that tracked all my spending in one budget in a simple and intuitive way. Daily Budget was the only app that worked for me.

It’s become essential for me to keep track of my spending and make sure I’m saving as much as I need to each month. There are also helpful graphs that I like to use to see how my spending has changed. Recent updates have also made the app run way smoother.

Coming from apps like Mint that connect to your bank accounts, I wasn’t sure if Daily Budget would work for me since I’d have to input transactions. I quickly got used doing it, and I think it makes the app even more useful because whenever I make a purchase I see how my budget is affected.

If you’re looking for a simple, intuitive budgeting app to generally track your spending, I cannot recommend Daily Budget enough.

Was my favorite budget app

Let me start out by saying I thought this was the best budget app ever created. I would argue against anybody that would say otherwise. However, I’ve run into the same issue over and over again. Every once in awhile the amount on my daily budget would jump tremendously to a negative amount or to some insane positive amount. I’ve contacted customer support for this many times. And they say it’s because of the cloud syncing and that I need to make sure my cycles are all there. I’ve got use to fixing it even though I wasn’t too happy about it, but now when it just changes for no reason even though all my cycles are there, I just don’t want to deal with it anymore. I hope this doesn’t happen to your app, and maybe my phone is just malfunctioning. I’ve paid for the full version of this app and I’m sad to let it go. I’ll be trying other apps in the meantime until there are improvements or when I get a newer iPhone (currently using iPhone 7). I appreciate the services that I’ve received up to this point. Thanks.
