Daily Budget Original takes a different approach to budgeting

Daily Budget Original takes a different approach to budgeting. When you first open the app, it asks you what your monthly income is, then it’ll tell you how much you have to spend a day based on that alone. After that fun share, it’ll ask you what your expenses are. As you enter them, your daily amount to spend will lower until you are finished entering your expenses. From there, the app will ask you how much you want to save in percentage form, and of course, that bit will be taken away from your daily spending, but it’s all for a better future, isn’t it? Every time you open the app now you’ll be able to add an extra income or input an expense that takes away from your daily balance. One thing that makes this app special is the ability to set up a “Big Spendings” plan by entering the dollar amount and date you’d like to purchase the item. The app will then tell you how much money you’d need to save per day to get that item on time. There are a ton of in-app upgrades available, but for only $4.99 you can upgrade to PRO, which is well worth it.

What is it about?

Daily Budget turns saving into a game by calculating your everyday "allowance" and rewarding you for sticking to it. Anything you don't spend rolls over to the next day's funds, so you can see how your financial responsibility (literally) pays off right away.

Why we love it

Nobody is too old for an allowance. Daily Budget provides a super-quick, easy way to show how well we're doing. And we like constant updates, so the daily refresh on our progress is extra appealing.

Beyond spectacular! - This app is so fantastic- as with many other reviewers, I've tried other budgeting apps like Mint. 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.
