Ratings and Reviews
Needs a couple features, but great app!
I’ve been using this for five months now, and this is the best app for a digital version of the old cash envelope system, a la Dave Ramsey. It’s great because some budget categories get spent completely every month to a zero balance, whereas other categories may accumulate over time, like savings, and this app accounts for these growing “envelope” balances - something that every budgeting app I’ve tried lacked. As long as you, and your spouse, enter EVERY transaction, it’s a dream to use. And with the accounts feature turned on you’ll know exactly how much you have at any time. I have bank and credit accounts entered, so I always know their balances at a glance. WHAT IS LACKING: There needs to be a RECONCILE feature in the app for when you need to compare what’s in Goodbudget versus your bank or credit card statements - like a checkbox next to each transaction in the transaction list. It’s frustrating sometimes to try and make sure you’ve got everything entered but have no way to mark what you’ve already verified. Ugh! Also, there needs to be a SEARCH feature in the app to search for specific transactions. There is one for the website but not the app. ——- Get the app! Keep up the good work, Goodbudget!
Developer Response ,
Hi Tricksterinator - Glad to hear you're liking the app, and thanks for letting us know how we can improve! I've added your vote for an iOS search feature, as well as a reconcile feature in the app. In case you missed it, you are able to reconcile on the web. You can do that by heading to your Accounts and then clicking on the 'Reconcile' button. Hope that helps!
A great App but needs a little improvement
Goodbudget is an amazing app that helps with budgeting. It does what it is supposed to and can help everyone to understand how to budget well and effectively. Goodbudget has graphs that are easy and simple to understand. One of them tells you where you spend your money the other tells you how much you spend and how much income you get. Goodbudget has easy-to-understand features and if you don’t understand they took time to create videos on how to learn to use the app well. The app also helps show you how much you spend and save to keep up with your finances well.
However, this app isn’t perfect just like everything. One negative about this app is that there is a paywall to get all the features and it can be tricking when first starting. The videos created are also a bit of a problem because they show that the app is very complex and can’t be fully used if not watched. Personally, one thing that bothered me was I needed to pay for an app about budgeting which I think is silly.
I understand that the app is free and a paywall is there for the creators to earn money from it, you can improve on helping a basic user to add a tutorial on what each feature does. This would be very simple to add and will help more people to want to download it for its simple explanation on how to use it. Other than this simple thing I love your app and how you guys were able to make it.
Overall the app is decent but there are some downsides
I have used Goodbudget for the past month and I think it is a decent budgeting app. It is an easy app to navigate and simple to use. I haven’t really struggled to figure out how to use it since it's pretty straightforward. The design is simple and things are easy to find. I like the envelopes and think they are useful and help me be organized. This is a free app and so I like how I have access to all of this but don’t have to pay anything.
However, this app does contain a few things that I didn’t really like. First of all, I feel like the app was very plain and wasn't very aesthetically pleasing to look at. The only color is a green part at the top of the screen. The rest is gray and black or white (depending on the dark mode). Alongside this, I had trouble signing in. At first it was really complicated trying to sign in and wasn’t working that well for me.
A suggestion for the app that I have would be to maybe make it a little more appealing. Try adding more things to make it a little less plain and boring. Another thing could possibly be adding a tutorial option on the app if the user doesn’t understand. It would help new users understand and probably be more comfortable using the app.
