Allene - “I love this app. It's simple yet robust. I like that I do not have to link all of my accounts to track spending. I can input recurring expenses, easily adjust them, and I can budget. I like the future income and expense forecast feature. I've downloaded literally 25 different apps over the years and I continue to use this one with no complaints.”
Emily - “This app changed my life. Works great, intuitive, doesn't link to your bank account, just easy way to record all your purchases. I love the clean simple design. I've used it nonstop since I downloaded it!!”

Helps predict cash flow
Edit part 2 - turns out the export issue was related to my ISP, not the app. I changed the email associated with the app and all is right again. So giving this app 5/5. It does exactly what I need it to do - let’s me enter future expenses (and doesn’t charge to enter repeating bills!) so I can see what cash I should have available in the future. I can’t find any other app that does this! Plus, you can easily see what you’ve been spending money on for any previous time period. “How much did I really spend on Starbucks last month?” (Answer: too much of course). How much did I spend on eating out overall last month? How much on gas? It’s more helpful to me than any other financial app!
Edit: for the past few weeks I’ve not been able to export my data and I’m not getting any response from the developers through the help page. The export feature is a deal breaker for me so I hope this gets fixed!
Original review: I’ve been using Dollarbird for a couple years primarily because it’s one of the few apps that lets you enter future expenses and deposits so you can immediately determine future cash flow. This is critical for me. I also really like that I can export data. One minor complaint: in the app when I select a category it often randomly selects a different category before I hit save. Kind of frustrating! But otherwise a really good app.
Exactly what I was looking for!
Why aren’t more people using this method?!!? This is the best way that I know of to project expenses. We don’t get consistent bill amounts in a consistent manner. So without having that information, how can you anticipate if you have enough money for the next month? Just because there seems to be enough in your account doesn’t mean that there is. Especially when you factor in that there are five week months. On some of those, you get paid three times per month (factoring in bi-weekly paychecks). But what about the other 5 week months, when you only get paid twice? You still have two factor in an additional weeks expenses, such as gas and groceries. By being able to project out, I can make sure that I have enough in my account. I can’t say enough good things about this method!
Freezes and crashes constantly
I am pretty disappointed by the update to Dollarbird 2, mostly for two reasons: 1) the new interface feels like it had the purpose to look good with no real purpose. Charges are harder to find and the monthly overview looks jammed. 2) A bigger letdown however is how data is handled on Dollarbird 2. Now it takes a long time after launching the app until all data has been loaded (it appears the app tries to load the most recent state from the server every time you open the app). This makes the simple process to open Dollardbird and adding charge very slow and cumbersome. Additionally the app freezes (probably also due to server communication issues) constantly. All in all the previous Dollarbird was much simpler and faster to use and this version feels heavy and slow. I am close to giving up on Dollarbird.
Update after developer’s response:
The app works worse than initially reported by me. It consistently freezes (approx. 9 out of the 10 times I open the app and try to add a charge it freezes). It crashes often as well. And approx once a day it logs you out so you will have to log in again. The app needs serious fixing.
Developer Response ,
Hello! We appreciate your feedback on our app. Please email our support team at email@example.com in regards to the crashes and logouts you’ve been experiencing. A few details about your device and account would come in handy in identifying the root cause of this issue. Screenshots are also welcome.
In regards to your other remarks: Dollarbird is cloud-based, thus the little delay. Our most recent update aims to speed up this process by loading your details from the local database first. With respect to changes being hard to find: have you tried the search feature on the web app? On mobile, if you're looking for an entry from a certain category, simply go to dashboard, expand the category of your choice and see the list of transactions tagged with the same label. Selecting one will display all the entries and the dates on which you added them. Hope this helps. Should you need more details, feel free to explore our Help Center articles on help.dollarbird.co, reach out to us or even suggest features you'd find helpful https://dollarbird.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/115000082014-Feature-Requests.
