    When I realized mine and my husband’s spending habits were out of control I knew I needed something to get us on track. This app has done that for me! The high rating is well deserved. Those that rate it low often complain that you have to enter things manually but I think that part is fantastic! It gets YOU involved in your finances. You don’t need to be disassociated with your own finances by having an app update and download everything from your bank account for you. There is enough automation from the app to get you started you just have to make sure you keep track of everything you spend. After calculating your monthly income, reoccurring expenses (basically bills) and what percentage of your income you want to save the app gives you a “daily spending budget”. Basically how much money you can spend per day after saving and bills have been factored out. If you don’t spend it it adds up each day. As you spend you can subtract it from the daily budget and it calculates accordingly. Awesome!! Some advice: I make the app work for me by sitting down at the end of each week and inputting all my expenses by going through every transaction on my bank statement. I also compare what I actually paid on my bills that week to what I input in the reoccurring expenses. You have to input a baseline for your income and reoccurring expenses so if your bills fluctuate (like power and water) keep that in mind! How I handle that is adding or subtracting from my “daily budget” accordingly. So if a bill was less than my baseline I add the difference to my daily budget as extra income. If it was more I make sure to subtract that amount. I do the same with our paychecks. They aren’t always the same amount each time so my baseline is averaged a bit lower so I never have to subtract (never overestimate your income!!) and I just add the amount it’s over each time we get paid. In my reoccurring expenses I also gave myself a monthly grocery, gas and eating out budget. That way those are already calculated out of my daily spending limit. It helps me know what I really have available to spend while making sure all my bills and essentials are taken care of. I highly recommend if you’re trying to budget to save to include things like that in reoccurring expenses and keep yourself on a budget. Groceries and eating out are huge budget busters! Great app that has really helped me developed good habits. If there was a suggestion I could make it would be the inclusion of a “savings” tab so you can see how much you’ve saved so far that month. The app lets you choose a percentage to save out of your income and tells you how much you can expect to save each month but that’s it. (Unless I’m missing something) It’d be nice to be able to have a tab for savings specifically that operates like the daily budget tab, each day it adds up your total savings for the month so far.

  • Simple, Clean & Effective

    The projections for saving potential displayed on home screen gives nice incentive to spend less and save more. One thing that could use some work happens when you set up the app late in the day. It will naturally double your daily allowance the fallowing day if you don’t have any spending done for the rest of the evening. This gives a false buffer of savings. This is only an issue on the initial set up though. Great app over all, full recommend.
