I tried a lot of other budgeting apps before finally finding and falling in love with Goodbudget. For those who want complete control and awareness of their spending habits, THIS IS THE APP FOR YOU. For those looking for a hands off budgeting approach, I suggest you look elsewhere. The app is fairly simple to figure out and they have SO many tools and tips on their website in case you are having any issues. Unlike many of the other popular budgeting apps, Goodbudget does NOT connect to your bank account, therefore it does not automatically file transactions for you. I personally prefer this as it makes you more aware of the money you are spending when you have to physically put in the transaction. The envelope feature is great to help you keep ahead of bills and daily expenses, and if you go to their website on a desktop you are able to make envelopes for weekly, monthly, yearly, etc. I do wish this functionality would make its way to the app as anything other than my “every two week” envelopes are under the header of “other” instead of it saying monthly, or yearly. The $50 yearly fee is honestly nothing compared to the amount of money I’ve saved by using this app. The credit card and debt feature has helped me only make purchases I know I can pay off right away and helps me manage my student loan payments. This is a very well rounded app and they continue to make updates and listen to their users about what features they want. I highly recommend.

Hi there--glad you like the app! You can definitely debits (and credits!) through the Goodbudget app. Just tap on the notepad and pen icon at the top right of the app to create a new transaction. To edit, just head to the transactions tab and tap on the one you want to modify. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help!
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!

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!
Best decision ever!
In April of 2013 I estimated my income, created a budget, took some money out of savings and lived off last months income (accruing new income with which to create a new every penny allocated budget). I haven't looked back. I use the subscription level account so that I can use Goodbudget (then called EEBA) to balance all of my bank accounts (checking, credit card that gets paid off every month, savings accounts). I even got my sister to do the same thing. She used an income tax refund to start the live off last months income process. We recently upgraded our house. I couldn't have done it all without the Goodbudget tool to manage my money (instead of it managing me). My favorite features include: real time updates to envelopes so my hubby and I are always in synch, the progress bar that helps you make decisions on if I should really go out to eat or not, easy imports/balancing of all of my bank accounts. I couldn't live without this app. Goodbudget is AWESOME SAUCE!!!!
Here we are in May of 2019 and is still think this is the most awesome thing in the world. I would never want to manage my finances without this app. I reconcile my accounts every month and this app is a MUST.
