Had some trouble learning the ins and outs of the app but like it now that I got the hang of it. Minus 2 stars though because the app can be tough to learn and envelope transfers don't always work.
Love it...but it's not free This is a hands-down great app. I have it loaded on my husband's phone and we both use it. It perfectly replaces the paper envelope system we were employing. My only gripe is not being able to have more envelopes! I don't need all the other fancy gadgets that come with the paid version.
Easy to navigate My dad was really pushing me to get the app on my phone so I could more easily keep Mvelopes updated. After downloading it and looking at it I was intimidated and stuck with the computer. Silly me. It's easy to navigate and very user friendly. Awesome for keeping me in budget while at college!
Hard to learn, but worth the effort I have been using for a month and really enjoy this program. It took a while to figure out the program and make it fit my finances as the tutorials are lacking. I had to wipe everything 3 times before I got it right. I found shortcuts and cheats to make it work for me and it is hands down the best program out there and I have used them all. Major downside is that the phone app isn't very good, so I only use it to check envelope balances and add transactions and then go online the budget, fund and balance.
Best out there Love the seamless bank integration. You do have to trust them with your back account passwords, so if you don't then beware. But I love the convenience of not have to enter every purchase to stay on budget, but they are synced from my bank. Beautiful new design as well.
My favorite app CON: Needs ability to sweep & I could manage my budget entirely from the app. I am not a fan of the desktop version bc it requires flash & thus resizing stinks. PRO: This is the best budgeting app I have ever had. It is easy to use and has helped me understand my spending. I like the challenge of being able to work yourself out of a hole if you overspent and that you have to put every transaction into the category. That helps me understand what money is coming in and goung out across all my accounts.
