This is the closest thing I’ve found to poor man’s budget

My wife and I got this app when it was the earlier version years ago and just upgraded to the newer version yesterday. Totally satisfied with a new version of this app.

It’s really helped us get our budget under control by telling us what we have left over today after deducting everything we were responsible for in terms of fixed expenses per month.

If you prefer to use some thing like the poor man’s budget, this app is for you. It works simply by taking your monthly income (We use take-home pay rather than salary) and deducting your non-monthly fixed expenses. Whatever you have left over is broken down per day and that’s what you have to spend so if you save $20 today you have 20 extra dollars tomorrow, it gives you a nice heads up view of your current status and incentivize you to save a little bit for tomorrow. Additionally since you can factor in saving for goals and deduct that before your daily spending budget you can automatically start saving for the things that are important to you down the road.

If this app didn’t exist I would have built it myself since it’s exactly what I need, thanks to the creators.

Hi, thank you for this most wonderful review🥹🙏 It definitely works as a poor man's budget, and hopefully after using this app, no longer a poor man😉 The app is in active development and is getting better with each update so please look forward to the future of this app. Next up is widgets! Cheers, Juno (Co-developer)

Good, but not better than Daily Budget

The only thing I like better about Today’s Budget over the original is the look. The UI elements look modern, but sadly the user experience is not as intuitive. I find it confusing where to view recurring income and expenses, as opposed to everything being organized into one “Daily Budget” tab in the original. The analytics section doesn’t provide any significant improvements over the original either. In general, there’s just more tabs to go through.

The main reason why I won’t be switching is the monetization model. Certainly the developers deserve money for their work, but without any big functionality improvements, I can’t justify switching to a subscription model. Alone, this is a great app, but for those who have used the original, it’s not worth the jump. This definitely has the potential to become a great budgeting tool in the future.

Thank you for taking a look at our new app! Your feedback about Daily Budget view is a popular one and we are trying to address it better. In the next update, it will be possible to hide/order graphs so people can customise this page to only see relevant graphs. Just fyi, there is an option to pay only once. Thank you for your openness and this encouraging message. The app is in active development and is getting better with each update, so please check back in a few months! Best regards, Juno (Co-developer)

Absolutely Fantastic

I LOVED the original Daily Budget app. When I realized (through that app) that there is a new “Today’s Budget” app, I immediately jumped on it and purchased the lifetime unlock right away. If it was anywhere as close to the original, I knew it would definitely be worth it. So excited to use this coming in to 2023 and really eager to see what the developer(s) have in store for future updates. Keep up the great work guys! Would love to see a few widget options, an option to change the app icon and some support for Apple Watch. In a perfect world, would appreciate seeing everything that the original had in the way of features, etc. Thanks again for this amazing budgeting app!!

Hi! Thank you for this nicest review🥹🙏 Please checkout the list of planned features.  There is a link to it in Settings.  It has all of the features Daily Budget has, and more.  The app is still in active development and is getting better with each update.  If you want, you can vote on features in our subreddit (r/todaysbudget), but the next big update will be Widgets.  We look forward to working on the app in 2023 to delight users like you!😊 Best regards from Berlin, Juno (Co-developer)
