  • Great until we noticed a problem

    By Cappslocke
    This was a great solution until we noticed that there’s no way to actually refill the budgets. You have to “top up” the budget which strangely gets calculated back into the original total (if you had $100, spent $50, then refilled $50 back, it’ll state the total incl top-ups is $150.) This also results in the visual indicator/watermark becoming inaccurate, since it seems to be based on this strangely calculated total. If you simply allow crediting a budget without this incl. top-ups concept, it’ll be perfect/5-stars. As is, we have to consider deleting all budgets every month which is a headache (something we’re trying to avoid with budgeting app.)
  • Good idea but not accurate

    My wife and I use this to keep on budget, but our budgets often get out of sync. Hers will say a completely different number than mine, even after we both refresh. We end up having to delete the budget and create a new one until a few days later when that one stops syncing and we have to delete and start again. We really love the idea of this, but we need it to actually work.
  • Very easy and elegant!

    This app is exactly what my wife and I needed. Life is complicated enough—finally an envelope budgeting tool that’s as simple as paper envelopes. Such a great way to manage a few budgets with your family. I was so excited to stumble across this, and you’ve exceeded my hopes for the app. Thank you!
  • Great concept just needs some efficiencies

    Great idea for iMessage loving people to keep and share budgets. The major “pain” with the app is the need to manually go into each budget and swipe down to update it or check for updates. If there is a way for the app to recognize when updates are submitted by other folks and make the update perhaps when you open the app from iMessage (a single “get” for all budgets at time of opening) that would really make the app more user friendly. Of course, it can’t be constantly checking for updates, I bet that would reek havoc on the battery. Also it would be great to be able to add multiple updates to a budget in a single text. Really hope the update feature can be improved- will recommend the app to friends with that added feature. Thanks!
  • Nice if it would work

    We've attempted to use this to make sure my husband and I stay on budget. Sometimes the entries don't update. Sometimes we can only access the budget from one device. Right now we both get an error message and can't update our budget.
  • Keeps my spouse and I on the same page

    This is the only iMessage app I have that I legitimately use. At the beginning of each month, I create all of our envelopes (budgets) and share them with my spouse. Whenever we incur an expense, we update the envelope or budget and send the update to each other. It's great because we always know how much we have left of x each month. I'm sick of the apps that link to bank accounts because it gets to be too much. Only negative is that you have manually open each budget and then swipe down to refresh. Developer should add button tap to refresh all budgets.
  • So want this to work

    I so want this to work. It's a perfect way to share a budget, but sometimes it misses a transaction, which puts us out of sync and kind of defeats the purpose. Help!
  • Don't pay attention to these one star reviews!!!!

    Hey folks....this app is part of a new category of apps that work exclusively in iMessage. It is installed! Open iMessage and tap on the App Store icon next to the text input field. You can access it there. This is a really useful way to share a budget. This is a great app.
  • App is a message app

    This is an app that shows up in iMessage and it works. It doesn't download to the home screen.
  • Was not downloaded?? Though it says installed
