Great way to manage your money!
If you’re looking for a budget app that connects to your bank accounts, there’s tons of them out there! Buddy isn’t meant to be used that way and I LOVE that about it. If you have fixed expenses, you’re able to set those up on a recurring basis. Being able to manually input transactions is also ideal for those who want to stay on top of their expenses as they’re made. If you’re not a fan, you can always schedule transactions ahead of time too!
I used to use the Daily Budget App, but I honestly enjoy the UI of Buddy so much better that I can see myself using it more. 👌🏼
LOVE this app - BUT
So I have tried just about every personal finance tracker that the App Store has to offer. This app is by far my favorite! It is beautifully designed and makes managing your day-to-day and long-term expenses an easy task.
However, I wish there was a flat fee for premium instead of a monthly subscription. This is why I couldn’t give the app 5 stars. It has so much potential, but isn’t worth the monthly fee. If this is ever changed, I’ll be purchasing and giving the full 5 stars!
Ok. I love this app. Aesthetics mean a lot to me and if I don’t like the way it looks, 9x out of 10 I won’t use it. This app is beautiful, and equally useful. Just like the other reviewer stated, I too, hate the apps that want my login information so that was a big bonus.
My only gripe is that I would like a bill icon/section/page, so I can enter in my bill due dates, have the app to remind me to pay them, keep track of what is past due and have it all tie to my budgeted categories once I mark them paid.
Does anyone else have this problem?
I’ve been liking the app, however, it doesn’t let me put in cents. Like if I paid $14.55 for something for example, it only lets me put $14 or round up to $15, does not let me include the cents. Is anyone else struggling with this or know why this is happening? Thanks! Other than that, great app.
please! make it works! fix it!
I can’t add another categories and sections in the settings of my monthly/current budget! I’ve added and it has beeen disappeared. Then I’ve added again, it has been again disappeared. again and again. It’s not useful. I am at an impasse with your app.
Premium doesn’t have imported transactions
I have a feeling that it would be the perfect budgeting app for me, but even the premium option doesn’t have syncing with bank accounts. We’re adults with a small child—we need to be able to track 401ks, savings accounts, student debt, credit cards and general spending in one app.
I have time to approve transactions that an app has uploaded for me, but literally zero time to constantly import the massive amounts of money-moving that being an adult involves.
I think this would be a great starting app for a teenager, or a college student, but it’s just not for a more established audience.
After downloading and trying out many apps, this seems to be the best one for me. First and foremost, it does exactly what I need with a great looking UI and UX as a graphic designer myself. Contrary to what most other apps offer, I actually love the fact that it doesn't need to connect to a bank account to put in transactions! I think having to manually type every transaction keeps me more on top of my spending, and all it takes is a few extra seconds to input expenses. With that being said, I would love a widget where I could type things in on the go since I don't always save receipts etc. for later input (yay environment). Another thing i love is how easily one can add unforeseen income that doesn't affect total monthly salary! Totally awesome app, and I pretty much wouldn't change anything about it!
Good app, but could use improvements
I’ve been using this app for a few weeks, and I’ve loved the simplicity of it. It’s super easy to use! I just wish you could customize your income more. I get paid biweekly, and it only has weekly or monthly as a payment option. I choosing the day of the week and how often it repeats would be a better method.
Needs account syncing!
I LOVE the UI/design of this app - I want to use it because it’s so easy to follow and cleanly laid out, BUT it doesn’t sync to any of my bank accounts and that’s an issue. I feel like if it had the capability to sync with my accounts it would save me time and hassle of entering each purchase, which I always forget to do....please add this functionality - I think people would love it!
I love the design of this app! Looks so easy! I would like to know how to change the language, it downloaded in Spanish and I prefer English. Thank you (:
