Goodbudget is a really good budgeting app. I use the free version since my budgeting system is simple, and it allows you to sync two devices and also access your account on your browser, which is a great feature. It is also very easy to add transactions and it only takes me a couple of clicks. I would give Goodbudget 5 stars if it had the option to assign a category (or tag, or whatever you call it) to each expense and generate spending report for it. Overall, the app is great.

Thanks for your review! You can add tags and then filter for them with the Spending by Envelope report. You can read more about using tags here:

I love this app, it was a game changer for staying on budget, but I hate that when I scroll down in my transactions, it jumps back to the top. I have to scroll down twice for it to stay. And if I toggle between apps (my credit card app, for example, to add transactions to good budget), it jumps to back to the top again. Very frustrating when I am trying to determine which transactions have not been entered into good budget.

This app is so extremely helpful! I love the unlimited envelopes in the plus version but you can get 10 envelopes in the free version which is great if you want to keep it simple. An update I would love to see would be the option to scan your receipt when adding a transaction so you can see each item you purchased.
