Great but Subscription Based

I’ve been trying to find a decent budgeting app to help me track all my expenses across all accounts. I tried Mint for a few weeks and didn’t really like the UI—it felt disorganized and too cluttered for me. I downloaded Buddy and was happily surprised by how easy it was to navigate and the intuitiveness of adding and categorizing expenses. The only downside is the fact that I can’t connect any of my accounts without paying a subscription fee. I understand it, but at the same time, it’s just a bit irksome. Mint allowed me to integrate all my banking-related apps (PayPal, Venmo, banking account, etc) without having to pay anything. If Buddy ever goes subscription-free, or even changes to a one-time purchase, I will likely return and use it. But until then, I’ll continue my search for something else that fits my needs. But if you’re willing to pay to access this feature, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this app.

Please fix your widget

It shows the same price and default budget no matter what.

I tried to get a 7 day trial but was instead instantly charged the full yearly price. I emailed the company for a refund and days and days later got a vague message just saying I was not eligible for a refund. I’ve since then tried to use this app since I’ve been forced to pay for it and have emailed through the ask a question app several how to work the app questions that I’ve gotten no response to at all.

Close but not quite there yet

I really wanted to embrace this app as my only budgeting tool, and there’s lots to like (general layout, organization, customization, etc.) but there are a few things that kill this app for me. 1. It doesn’t support all my accounts. It only seems to support my big accounts. My HSA, 401k, student loans, High yield savings account, and more are all NOT supported. That means I’d have to constantly use the native apps for those items, which is a big loss for me. I want to use a single app to check on everything. Plus, other apps like mint DO support those items, so it is possible. This is the main issue i have with using this app. 2. There are some glitches on the iPad version. Things like the categories at the bottom not displaying the whole word consistently EX: “budg…” but then reverting one you click on them. Black glitchy bars that pop up when hovering over buttons on the iPad, and occasional glitches with changes not saving. 3. The “Save” tab is just ads and people paying for the app shouldn’t have to have it on the bottom section the whole time. I get the app needing ads for revenue with those that aren’t paying, but please allow users paying for the app to remove that section. It clutters the otherwise clean app. 4. The partner feature is not as intuitive as it could be. I expected to be able to see who has access to each budget and their icons at the top of my screen when viewing who has access. You can see who made transactions, but a top section bubble displaying who has access to each budget would provide clarity. 5. I still need to play around more, but the combination of “accounts” and “bank accounts” is a bit confusing. I am trying to create folders to allocate money into, have savings goals, etc., so I like having the accounts section, but calling them accounts seems a bit confusing to me since they don’t appear to sync the same way the bank accounts section does. Calling them folders, goals, or something else similar might be more intuitive. Or just better explaining what the differences between the sections are. Really like the app, it’s mostly just the lack of connectivity that kills it for me. I’d really like to use this as my main, but at this point it lacks too many account connections to be viable, which is a real bummer.

you have to add whole sections of your bills. i have to bundle together my youtube premium, hulu, disney plus, etc. all that have different due dates as a bulk expense, rather than being able to have everything listed out correctly with its own name, price, and due date. its not user friendly, way too many features that dont have an off switch, and i can’t manually add bank details. 0/5 and i wasted my money.

Does not import expenses properly

After spending time importing expenses, categorizing them, etc, the ap would just DELETE all that info. Highly unreliable waste of time.

Missing key feature

Needs to be able to hide accounts. Do that and you got a great app.

Needs more developing

The aesthetics is very nice & the user interferes isn’t the most complicated, I’ve used easier, budgeting tools, and more complicated, budgeting tools. With that said, it doesn’t accurately track or calculate. 1. The tool is supposed to automatically link a transaction to the account that it’s tied to. Instead, I am going into almost 300 transactions individually to assign them to the correct account. 2. since it can’t detect the correct account, it can’t detect separate users on the same account (yes, different cards) 3. Transactions are registered as mine when they are the other users. 4. The income was added, but it does not subtract the transactions. So the app is telling me my accounts are empty, because it’s not mathing🤦🏽‍♀️. If the app needs time to learn the users behavior more than a seven day trial is needed. This app is over priced for something not automated.

Inaccurate imports, disappearing transactions

Been having issues with pending transactions disappearing and importing issues with this app since June. Had to remove all the transactions, disconnect my bank accounts, and even had to use the “start fresh” function to redo every transaction. Saw the update stating the disappearing transaction bug was fixed, and updated the app. However, it did not solve the problem. And just yesterday, after syncing with my bank, all my previous transaction history was gone, except for the newly synced ones. I requested a refund for spending $99 on an app that has caused me more headaches than using a spreadsheet to budget my spending, but got declined. I’d put this app at 0 star if possible.
