  • Eh. Mint is good 👍🏼

    -1 Star for not allowing free tier users to connect their accounts to the app -1 for pricing of membership -1 for always signing me out and forcing me to log back in. It’s a mobile app This has a better budgeting format, than mint. But mint is superior in every other way. And they seem to stay true to saving people money, instead of monetizing.
  • Wasn’t Even Able to Sign In

    By MarkM92
    Never got passed sign in. First off, why do you need an entire account including my email for a simple budgeting tool? Oh well. Jumped through the hoops and verified email address only to not even be able to sign into the app itself. Looks like the keyboard function is glitched and won’t pull up when the email field is selected on the login screen. Going back to a different app I guess.
  • It used to be free

    I am so disappointed that an app that was so great for people is now charging for the services that makes it an applicable app. Shame on Dave Ramsey’s company for taking this over for another money making opportunity when they could be helping people...

    Dave Ramsey has totally changed my life and in doing so he gained my trust enough to buy a premium app (which I never do)...Then that premium version does not work. I can not connect to my bank consistently for month long stretches. I ask support and they say they are working on it every time. This has happened 3 times now and I’m tired of it. Going to mint which connects to your banks FOR FREE. Such a ripoff.
  • Great App

    I love this app and the tech support is really helpful and stays with you until it works. I’ve been using it for two months. In the long run it’s worth it to pay for the app because of you are really tracking and trying to budget this app is as up to date as your bank account. I tried using my bank account budget tool and it was not nearly as user friendly for the family budget. It lets you look at planned/spent/remaining categories in each budget item within seconds. It’s helps keep track lump sum budget items that used to sneak up on us. We realized we needed to be setting back $2000 a month for a fund for lump sum spending. How many months and years of stress did that category alone cause! The only person who doesn’t need this app is someone who has no income. Thanks Dave!

    Love this app for staying in budget! I've found that I like when I don't have the bank integration because it's much of a hands-on experience to have to put in the charges myself. (Note to self: want to not have to put so many charges in the app? Don't buy as much in the next week 😉)

    Use this app all of the time and love its features, but every time I open the app, it acts like it’s going to sign me in with Face ID but then makes me sign in with a username and password....every time. Would rate higher but for that.
  • Great Start but needs improvement

    By irap_93
    I have been using the app for a few months now and the concept is so useful. But it doesn’t actually have your budget on the phone, so if you happen to have bad service, which is common where I live, the app won't work and sometimes signs you out completely and then won't let you sign back in. Lots of apps store data locally and in the cloud so I don't know why this app doesn't.

    By EclecticEthos
    This app has been a life changer for us! The envelope system was too cumbersome for us. This app has given us so much insight to our spending habits! Believe them when they say it takes 3 months to feel like it’s working. It’s been about 18 months for us and because of this app we are succeeding in our goal of paying off our house in a couple months!!!💥😍. I have shared this app with friends who are also gaining benefit so it’s not just us!
  • Great Potential

    By Bryan Baecker
    I’ve used this app for over a year now and I couldn’t be more disappointed with it. It has a lot of potential but apparently the developers are in ‘collect revenue and don’t add new functionally’ mode. PROs Clean, easy to use interface Very fit for purpose for ‘every dollar budgeting’ CONs No AMEX connectivity Limited use outside of ‘every dollar budgeting’ (e.g. data export for tax reporting) No auto fill for past manual entries or transactions No way to view spending trends by category No way to export data No new functionality in over a year

    By Jaed1234
    I like that this app doesn’t link to my bank account, because it allows me to control my budgeting and makes me responsible for it. The layout of the app is easy to use and pleasantly designed. It’s help me keep on top of things a lot better. My only complaint is a bit about the funds. I wished when you planned money to add to a fund in your budget, it would automatically mark that as spent so the remaining balance didn’t reflect that money. Also I wished when you used money in that fund it wouldn’t affect your monthly available/ spent balance because I pulled that money from money outside my budget for the month. It’s kinda annoying these numbers get skewed every time I use money from one of my funds.

    The EveryDollar team has done a great job of providing a product that will help you take control of your money. It helps you know and understand exactly how much you are spending on various items. Before using this app, I would freely swipe my card without ever really realizing how much was going out the door each month on unnecessary convenience store and restaurant purchases. This has helped me keep my spending in check and develop better savings habits. Great work EveryDollar.
  • Hasn’t been working for days

    1
    By amandafaith1
    Every day there is a connection issue with my bank and this app and every day I have to try and sync the account again. So far, it keeps showing an error message every time after I enter the verification number. Sometimes it will connect but by the next day it’s not working again. It recently duplicated all of our transactions from the past two weeks that I had to delete. I LOVED this app when it was working but the last week has been a major disappointment with how many issues I’m having. I sent in support tickets but I’m still continuously having the same issue every single day. Let’s get this fixed so I can give you the 5 stars you deserve. K?

    I was doing my budgeting on Excel but this is WAY better. The design and just the thought behind everything- makes it a budgeting gal dream app. It does freeze every now and then which is why I gave it only 4 instead of 5.

    I love this app, and it helps me stay on budget. However, with the premium I have to constantly make sure my account is connected to the app.
  • Bank Connection Issues

    1
    By Smarflo99
    I have the “plus” version so it is suppose to automatically sync my bank transactions. I agree with most of the lower rated comments that I have been reading. I like the app when it works, but connecting to my bank has been an issue. All the help support says is to remove your bank and re-add it. Then it pull transactions in twice, misses some, and I spend more time trying to figure out which transactions are duplicates and which ones I am missing. It usually takes over a week to get something fixed, then my transactions back up without getting categorized. I wish they could help quicker, but maybe the support team is overworked with all the bank connection issues.....

  • Easy to drag bank items to each category!

    By Fish Catcher123
    We are finally getting organized with this app. My favorite function is dragging the bank items into each category. I also like to be able to see the amount planned/spent/remaining in each category. Thank you Dave Ramsey solutions! I can’t wait for my husband and I to do our debt free scream. It’s been a long journey, mostly our fault due to disorganization. I get teary-eyed every time I hear a debt free scream.

  • We save hundreds ($$$) per month

    5
    By smithrof
    This app is one of the few, and best I’ve found, that enables you to budget all of your money in real-life categories. Tying it to your bank account is a must, but the app pays for itself more than any other investment I know. When we made realistic budgets and my wife and I agreed on them and my wife (less budget conscious of us two) started overseeing the categorizing each transaction, we lived well within our means on a modest income with two kids. This app was our tool that enabled us to save at several hundred dollars per month. We tried the envelope system with cash but found it hard and unrealistic to keep up with (go you who can do that!). I like that you are required to slide every transaction to its budget. Auto-categorizing software messes up a lot and doesn’t make you stick with it consistently (Mint). The one thing I wish was different was that it would let you categorize pending transactions. Mint did this, I think, it’s nice to know right at any moment what all categories are at, but if you need to wait till the transactions are not pending in your bank, you’re always about 3 business days behind. This makes trips hard and in general makes me required to remember certain recent purchases to know how much I actually have in a given budget. I’ve gotten to the point where I typically just memorize through the month how much I’ve spent in different categories that I use frequently. I wish it allowed you to categorize them but came back out or disappeared from the category or yet-to-be-categorized list if it didn’t go through on your bank account. Overall great app. With a young family and busy schedule, the app is a tremendous help. You’ve made our lives better, and we really appreciate it!!

  • Recent update preventing 5 stars

    4
    By Quiet Please
    I love this app and recommend it to everyone!! I have really been able to get my family finances in order and have started saving a lot. If you’re looking for a budgeting app, your financial situation is most likely not great, just like mine before using the app. So here’s a money saving tip, you don’t need to pay for premium service. Enter everything yourself and be very hands on with all money coming in and going out and you will really start to see results. Good luck! One complaint only and I guess it’s minor. There was recently an update where retailer names will automatically be suggested when entering an expense. Please get rid of it. The local grocery store is not listed and many other places I shop are not listed either. Please go back to the way it was before. It was great. The only thing that would have made that better would be to save the names from my previous entries and then suggest those instead of what it suggests now. Thanks, love the app.
  • Initial Setup Wizard

    3
    By languageandexpression
    The initial setup wizard needs to be available at any time, not just when you first start using the app. It’s easier to input information and figure things out with the help of the wizard, and if you quit the app without finishing the initial setup, it makes it difficult to figure out how to get all the right numbers in the right places. There should be an option to go back to the wizard at any time.
  • Definitely worth the effort, but needs a couple more features

    4
    By HG1324
    First of all, I love this tool. It’s great for keeping track of your finances. I do think it needs a few more things, though. The first thing is, I think there should be a snowball feature that lets you put in how much debt you have on a certain account, then have the app subtract it as you pay down the debt. Ideally, you could order your debts smallest to largest, and watch both the item lines as well as graphs change as you make payments on your debts. It should also calculate the interest for you. For instance, if you have a car loan with a $10,000 balance at 10% interest, you put that into the app, then make a $300 payment. The app should subtract that from the balance, and recalculate the interest as well. You can always add the feature to edit the calculations manually as well. I found an app years ago that did that and it was awesome. I forget why I deleted it. You guys could really make a good version of that feature! Secondly, I think there should be a way to budget weekly, quarterly, semi-annually, and yearly. It would be best if those were optional as well, so that users could decide which ones they want to use. It would allow for better fine-tuning of the budget as you spend your money, as well as for the long haul when looking at financial plans over the span of, say, five years. Just a thought. The third thing is, this app has a lot of features already, so I really think it would benefit from a proper tutorial. Yes, the average person can use this app with no problem. I’m not denying that. What I am saying is this: budgeting requires reading, and readers are often lazy and forgetful. I’m guilty of it myself, and I love reading! A proper tutorial would help users become familiar with the app faster, making it less frustrating when they are first figuring out the whole budgeting thing as it is. An unrelated thought: Chris Hogan should have a retirement app. From a marketing standpoint, I think it would reach more young people than a book will; initially, anyway. Overall, I love the EveryDollar app. It makes handling my finances a LOT less stressful. Now I give every dollar a place to go, on purpose! Thanks for that.

  • I want to love this app, but...

    2
    By MAGwyre
    I want to love this app more than I do but there are a few things holding me back from a higher rating. First, it does not update often enough. Even now, I’ve been waiting for over 6 hours for it to catch up with my bank and that’s after about 4 or 5 nudges within the app itself. Still no updates. For $9.99 per month, I’d like for it to be more responsive and work on MY time, not its own. Yes, I have confirmed that the transactions have posted to the bank. Second, I’d like to track Baby Steps within the app and not have to go to the website for that. Third, I’d like the ability to track annual spending per category (ex, how much have I spent on clothing or gas this year so far? Or medical expenses?). Other than these issues, there is enough to like about the app to hold on to it for now. UPDATE - I’m looking for a different app. The glitches with EveryDollar are too frustrating and not worth paying $10 per month anymore.

    I love this app. Looked at a lot of the budgeting apps. This one was the best for me. My ADD makes it hard when their is to much information. This one is simple and effective. It’s a little hard figuring out how to set-up the budget but once it is, I can keep track very easily. I like the reminders and being able to categorize items as a fund so you can keep track of the balance from month to month. It’s an expensive app but definitely worth it for me. Especially since I have never been good at budgeting. Thank you every dollar.
  • Good app

    By Jmoor89
    I like some of the features about using this app over other budgeting apps like being able to put in a dollar amount spent in each category if I don’t pay something like gas in my vehicle all in one shot for the month. I wish it had a feature where I could use my fingerprint for access vs. having to put my password in every time it signs me out.

  • Still Too Many Bugs

    2
    By Tgnzalez
    I’ve used Mint, Every Dollar, and just the traditional excel spreadsheet option. I love the capabilities this platform has but, for a paid service, it’s not where it needs to be. The account linkage is unreliable, the app freezes and makes actually creating your budget a frustrating process. What’s great about Mint is that it imports your income and automatically tracks it for you, Every Dollar doesn’t seem to have this capability. It won’t even let me select my deposit and assign it to the income section. I don’t love it, I think it has potential but it’s been a little over a year since I’ve tried it a second time, and yet I’m still disappointed.
  • Great app and it’s free

  • Best zero based budget app

    5
    By Kfd726
    If you desire to create a zero based budget, this is the best app and is worth paying the yearly cost to connect it to your bank account. No ads trying to convince you to go into debt. No automatic rollover from one month to the next (this is for zero based budgeting!). No automatically categorization of your expenses (this app is made for YOU to do the budgeting). I love it and use it daily.
  • No setup instructions

    By Jonnnyyyy1456789
    The app walks you through entering your expenses and then offers no other info on how to set up the app. If you want frustration then pursue using this app.
