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.

It works - for real.
Update after using for 6 weeks: it's even better than I expected. You never know how apps will pan out over the long term, but this is, by a very long way, the best budgeting app I've ever used. I love how I put my fixed costs in and the minimum I want to save and then that's it. Those costs are not relevant to me when they come in (because they are already "paid for" with this budget tool), so I only need to focus on the variable expenses. I don't have any fixed costs in for food because it's so much in my control (e.g., do I really need to buy groceries, or can I eat what's here? Do I have money to go out to eat?). Over Mother's Day weekend expenses got high because I took my mom out for dinner & drinks and bought her a gift. But even with that, this app I helped tremendously. I was "in the orange" for about 5 days, so I just was really-really careful about not spending during that time. Anyway, I could go on...if you don't think budgeting can work for you, try this app. It will surprise you.
I've just started with it, but wow. Very enlightening. I know it'll work. I, too, like that it doesn't automatically load in expenses. I have plenty of apps that do that, and it doesn't help keep my budget going. This has.

Many thanks for your feedback – we are happy to hear that you keep using the app for a long time! We will go on improving Daily Budget for future releases!
Awesome app but...
If that is the case, can you add a button below “delete” that says “end recurring expense” or “end” that just put ends the expense so that users don’t have to set the end date to previous month (that’s the more annoying part). Also, if you want to make magic happen, if I change something about the recurring expense, ask the user if it wants it to apply to all cycles or just this one. Then if user selects just this one you behind the scenes ends the expense in the previous cycle, clone the expense with new start and end dates and boom, problem solved. The last suggestions is better than the first one. Hope you can implement that. Thanks.
I use this app everyday. It’s how I manage my money. I just want to ask for a minor change that it was introduced recently. Please, please, let me change and tweak my regular income and recurring expenses per cycle like it was before. Now if I change something, it will affect all my cycles because now the app uses date ranges for everything. I just want to tweak my current cycle. I do not want to need to change the end date so that I can “finish” the recurring expense and create another one with the same name with my new number. It’s just annoying. Let us modify our daily budget per cycle without modifying the before ones. Thanks. Used to love the app but that little change is making everything hard for me.

The app I never knew I needed
This is the budgeting app I never knew I needed! I’m only two weeks in but I’m already impressed. I’m still skeptical because I’ve tried many apps that eventually don’t work out, which is why I’m cautiously giving it a 4 star for now. For some reason, these other apps are overly difficult to keep track of a budget. It just never made sense to me. A budgeting app should make your life easier, not more difficult. With Daily Budget, I like that I can input fixed income, costs, and savings. I also like the ability to see my daily budget and add any (+) or (-) costs. It has a reminder option that I turn on for 9pm that way I can input my costs at the end of the day, if my day was chaotic and busy. I was sick of over-spending and not having a clue of where my money was going. Life is a variable though and this app allows the flexibility to spend money every day, if needed, but spend it more consciously (as you’ll have a set daily budget determined by your fixed incomes, costs, and savings). It’s exactly what I needed. I love that the basic functions are FREE. I also like that you can individually purchase any other functions you might need. I bought the no ads, more categories, and graphs add-ons and I don’t regret one bit. I’ll be back in a few months to update my review and re-rate it.
