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. -- IN MEDIA –- “Take the blah out of budgeting” – Seventeen Magazine “An utterly fantastic approach to saving” – Apppicker “Super-quick, easy way to show how well we're doing” - Appadvice -- HOW IT WORKS -- 1. Enter your regular income, like salary or monthly allowance. 2. Enter your recurring expenses, like rent or gym. 3. Enter your saving goal, like 10%. 4. Watch your Daily Budget gets calculated and know how much you can spend every day! *Daily Budget is calculated simply as: (Income – Expenses – Saving)/Number of days in a month. Watch your budget grow as you stay below your daily budget. Now, saving money is suddenly a fun game!



  • Pretty easy to use

    By biobuilder
    My only complaint is that the daily budget is limited to a monthly basis for income. Of course there is a way around this called extra income.
  • ...Then I tried this app

    By tx369
    I have tried quite a few of these types of apps - looking for something to show me how I am saving for a particular goal, and what it looks like in the future if I save more/less. I have used other apps for a couple months, but then I subsequently delete each one, because it is hard to use, or it doesn’t track month to month, or it just isn’t what I was really looking for. Then I tried this app! It’s designed SO great. I love how it shows my daily spending for each of my bills, even my monthly bills. I love that when I enter in my expenses for today, it shows me how that affects tomorrow and next week. I am just so happy with this app. I want to show it to everyone. Thanks, people!
  • It’s pretty simple

    By EmilyDonovanTrack
    Simple, works well, does all the math for you which honestly all I need so ayyyyy
  • Excellent daily budgeting software

    By JollyRogue
    It’s really good. The ease of use is high, and it really helps keep me on a budget. It’s very simple. You set the amount you make, you set the amount you want to save, and enter any expenses which could be recurring or daily then the app shows you what your daily budget should be to reach the goals. Want to splurge on an Americano and Chocolate Croissant from the coffee shop? Check when your daily budget is at, and go for it if you have the budget. :) It’s that simple. There are a few things which would be nice to have. It would be nice if I could see my daily budget farther then 3 days out and backups to Google Drive would be nice. They don’t really detract from the over all app thought, and it’s still really good.

  • 10/10

    By KryptarcGaming
    This app is incredible
  • I love the app!

    By Sticksforlegs
    I absolutely love this app! The only thing I haven’t figured out how to do is to make a daily entry later. For instance, if I forget to log an expense for the day, how do I go back and log it later on that day? Otherwise, this app is so user friendly I can’t really believe it!
  • Best budget app

    By Sjbayne
    Simple, yet effective. Less complication = longevity and consistency... for my wife and I anyway. I tell everyone I can about this style of budgeting.
  • Simple

    Good and simple
  • Fantastic app

    By Knlnd
    The only thing I wish is if this connected to a bank account! But I do understand that manually entering transactions keeps you more mindful about your spending. Also, maybe I’m not using it right, but it doesn’t seem like you can enter transactions or income dated before the current date. I wanted to make the budget as accurate as possible with more data and input prior transactions for the month (since I just downloaded the app) but I don’t know if I’m thinking about it the right way. Should I be entering those past transactions dated for today and just distributing them to the end of the month? Anyway, great resource! I’m using it constantly. Clean, easy to navigate interface. Still learning the method and getting out of the “what’s left in my checking account” habit of spending. Bought it for myself and my wife, we have it set up on a single Dropbox account and it works great. Takes a minute to refresh but works perfectly.
  • Doesn’t Add Up

    By Drigodamus
    Purchases and budgets don’t add up, i subtract a $5 item and then my budget goes negative -$7.89 for the 3 days they show you...worked great for about a week, no idea where it’s getting its math now. Very frustrated, i purchased the upgrade after the good week of service...sigh
  • Awesome app

    By app lover 3100
    This app is what I have been missing. I have used other budgeting apps before and they did not fulfill my wishes like this app this. This app helps me to stay on track with my spending, the only downfall I see with the app is I wish it would keep a record of your overall balance daily that you can view for all your accounts. I am still new to using the app so if that is available already then disregard this review but if not that should be added as well.
  • Great

    So simple and effective
  • Budget App!

    By wowamyjo
    Use this to make all your savings goals come true.
  • Great

    By kairizi
    Great app and simple to use. I don’t have to link my bank accounts and I can input what I want and what I’ve spent. However I wish there was a way to view my budget weekly or monthly rather than daily and have to wait for it to accumulate or be in the negative after a big expense
  • On my way to financial freedom

    By Mic Palm
    This app helps me stop making impulse purchases and helps me save money.
  • Great!

    By Fluffyman192
    Wonderful app that helps me balance my budget.
  • Game changer in budget apps

    By livesuncorked
    Great app to help guide daily spending decisions!
  • Resetting

    By Cal.nel
    After a week the app resets. It’s not for continuous use.
  • Exactly What I Needed

    By MariZepher
    Simple, quick to set up, great UI, is exactly what I needed. Allows me to quickly track my expenses without bogging me down. It wasn’t even my initial intention to set up a budget—just wanted to track $$ out— but it was so easy and fun to set up my budget, I went ahead and did it. It’s been really empowering to have a real sense of what I can spend (or save!!) each day. I’m actually excited to pay attention to my money situation, rather than avoiding it.
  • Love this app!

    By HCrev
    This app has really helped me track my spending and stick to my budget! So easy and convenient!
  • MORE work needed

    By Notthemoma
    I needed something simple. I actually purchased the Pro version (stupidly now) after reading the reviews, seeing that updates were still being done, reading the developer description, and certainly testing it. It falls short in several areas one of which I don’t understand the hold up on allowing to custom your income date to 30 days or for some 14 days of your choosing. I saw they use to allow it but now have stopped and just force calendar start and end dates for income cycles as well as monthly transaction cycles. This means the app force you to do some calculations yourself (the one thing I don’t want). I am on disability and my income is on the 3rd of each month so mine does not fall as a calendar month. So that throws off the daily savings amount, not from the 1st - the 31st it forces you to select and can’t change. I’m sure others have other dates they have to contend with since I have several friends that have somewhat the same issue. That was just the first bummer. Then monthly bills consist of a car note and cell phone bills, oddly enough there are no default categories for that nor is there and icon to create your own category. Speaking of creating your own categories it says if you purchase you can get more category icons and custom one for your category. Custom to me means you can add your own image to customize it. No, they give you maybe 10 more icons that aren’t really to relative to too much, a car, cellphone, technology, maybe even a computer would be nice. Other areas have a too specific lock down you can’t custom but these were just my dislikes. I’ve only had the app for 3 hours and I found these problems so I have to adjust my thought process already and after having a stroke that won’t be easy that’s why I wanted something that could help me. Developer please allow a little give or add more, to help some of us that struggle. I already paid $8.99 so I’m locked in. Actually I paid $2.99 for custom icons before I saw the 8.99 so I overpaid, my mistake (I’m slower these days).
  • Love it

    By co1971
    Great app!
  • Love it!

    By AshlynWhite
    I love the app, however I do wish there was a way to add some sort of current bank account balance to it. Edit: Yea! I mean manual entry of your balance
  • No savings option

    By vegmegh
    This app only allows you one saving category, rather than being able to divide larger saving categories. For instance: I save for 1 - travel 2- service trip 3 - new car Etc. There’s no option to divide up the savings, so, I don’t feel this app is worth it. Nothing you can’t do with the envelope system.
  • Buddy

  • Clean and sleek

    By gouygkugh12
    So easy to use and clean display. Wish there were tons more icons but otherwise perfect!
  • This is what I’ve been looking for.

    By jonierose19
    I don’t need apps to connect to my banks, I just need a better way to break down the money I have, the bills I have, and what’s left after those bills. Perfect design too!
  • Nice and easy

    By Thrtnastrx1
    Just what a budget app should be. Not overly complicated like every other app
  • Great app for keeping track of money

    By Fhejrjxhch kick

  • No Regular Income

    By KingandLionheart
    Nicely designed app but what if I don’t have a regular income. My income changes each week. Does the app account for that?
  • Daily Budget

    By Sholynne
    Free version is what I currently use and it is fabulous. Super simple to use and I can make adjustments that I couldn’t make on a different app I was using.

  • Simple and effective

    By Good but needs ...
    I tried other budget apps because their UI was attractive but after using them for a while, I noticed that it really wasn’t as close simple as I wanted it. I really wanted a “daily budget”, I didn’t want to have to define a “budget” for everything. After that I returned back to Daily Budget and the reason is, because it does exactly what I wanted. A very simple way by just asking, Income, Expenses and Savings.... done. I have the daily cash I can spend. I didn’t need the paid version, but I use it so much that in support to the developer I went and bought all features. Bottom line, if you are looking for a simple way to track your Daily available cash... give this app a try.
  • Great App

    By potterlop
    Been helping me balance my budget recently
  • Good

    By moonshiner74
    I like the daily balance instantly updated according to spending. I just wish app can be sync’ed with another user.
  • Simple and easy!!!

    By 4Sonfollowergerson
    This is exactly what I wanted. I need something simple, easy to use and quick. I need help staying on track and this is EXACTLY what I didn’t know I ABSOLUTELY NEED!!! Get it!
  • Great App

    By cancelreviewduetonickname
    I have tried many budget apps, and feel this is the best. Easy to use and not full of unnecessary clutter. Very convenient.....its the first thing I reach for after spending money
  • This may save me!

    By R_Rocking
    I have dyscalculia, which makes handling finances a nightmare. I use a comprehensive budgeting app offered through my bank, but still had major issues keeping track of day to day spending. I’ve only been using Daily Budget for a few days but it’s already relieved so much stress! It’s so user friendly it literally took only minutes to learn it and enter my base data. It tells me on the spot whether I have money left to spend. Exactly what I was looking for!
  • Amazing for good simple budgeting

    By codydrey

  • Good app, nice UI

    By pinné
    I really liked the app, but can you add more currency? I need AMD but app doesn’t have that currency
  • Love

    By Dandc3827
    I Absolutly love this app. It so easy to use. I just wish it would have the option of showing the whole month and not just 3 days at a time
  • Budget

    By clarky35
    I loooove this app. It helps that it gives a daily spending budget, because I’m very click happy and so if I want something I put it in my cart and wait until my daily budget allows for me to buy it.
  • Easy to use and understand

    By Runner123rrrrr
    I downloaded this app based on reviews. I have no regrets on downloading it either. It’s very easy to use and understand! I understand that to buy other options you have to pay the 8.99 to upgrade but the basic is fine with me. This is definitely helping me spend my money more wisely than I have been.
  • Simple but effective

    By HohenheimOL
    I like to keep track of how much I’ve been spending so I can know when I’ve saved up enough to buy nice stuff. This app makes that fairly easy.
  • It’s super effective

    By Overly Magnificent
    This app provides a simple and easy to use interface that handles everything I need in a budget, including average daily breakdowns of finances, and the ability to spread out larger expenses, allowing you to save for bigger purchases.
