Easy to use on mobile or desktop! Some aspects and tools are still unclear to me, like how to color code for the graphs, but if I read more of the guide I'm sure I will figure it out. It would be great to have different currency options, as I'm using this in another country and just have to keep remembering that my income is not in $.

This personal budgeting app has made keeping track of finances not only easy, but enjoyable (as enjoyable as budgeting can be :))! I love the savings goal feature and have been much more conscientious of my spending with the help of this app. It is user friendly and easy to navigate. Such a time saver! Highly recommend.

As a user since 2014, I think one of my favorite things about BudgetForLife is that it's continually iterating to get better. Ever-expanding features to satisfy even the most savvy and complex budgets, yet increasingly intuitive interface and scalability that makes budgeting easier than ever for beginners. It's already my favorite budget software out there, which makes me that much more excited to see how it will improve in the years to come. Also, the cumulative effect is pretty stinking awesome. I now have 5+ years of financial history logged & accounted for! Not only does that help me observe bigger picture trends, but it also means that if I ever need to remember something that happened in the past, in less than 30 seconds I can find the exact transaction I need - the amount of the expense or income, when it happened, what it was for, etc. That's first of all super cool to me, but more importantly, it gives me a lot of peace, confidence, and security to truly know what's going on under the hood. All that said, thanks BFL for helping my family steward our finances well. Count us in as users ForLife!

My husband and I have been using BudgetForLife for over 5 years now, and we LOVE it! We recommend it to all our friends. It's easy to use, and I love that we have financial records of our spending habits. It's helped us be more intentional with our money, and the very few times we have had an issue or question come up, the company has been quick to respond and help us with whatever we needed.

Easy to use and useful, love it! One thing i'd like to have - the option to automatically forward final "savings" value (either + or -) to the next month log so I have a continuous actual info each month.

I love that I can customize it to be as specific or as general as I want. So helpful to keep track of where my dollars are going, and if I'm overspending. Great tool!

I guess I'm too stupid to use this? I've followed the setup directions, several times, and I still can't figure out how to get this working.

This is such a practical and useful format to help me track my finances. I love the pie chart and graph break downs that allows me to see where my spending is going each month. As a college kid, it's great to see my finances laid out and to be able to start a good habit now! So helpful!!!

I've been searching for a express tracking/budgeting app that can give me a good big picture view of where our money is going over the months, with the ability to zoom in on different categories and view reports/charts. I checked out several apps in the App Store and and read lots of reviews, and none of them seemed to do what I wanted. This has been perfect! It's easy to log expenses under my categories, and to then review them.
