About Goodbudget Budget Planner

Goodbudget is a fairly popular app for budgeting. It features cross-platform support so you can check it out on Android, the web, or iOS if you want to. Everything syncs between those platforms. Additionally, you'll get expense tracking, income tracking, and some other decent budgeting tools. It uses Material Design and it looks lovely. You can also export your data as a CSV file, QFX (for Quicken), and OFX (Microsoft Money) in case you need that. It's one of the more simple budget apps. Some of the main features are free. The rest require a subscription.

Teacher Review

What's it about?

Formerly known as the Easy Envelope Budget Aid (EEBA), the Goodbudget app is based on the envelope budgeting method that has been around for decades. The concept is simple, yet very effective. Every time that you get a paycheck, you split that paycheck into envelopes representing expenses, such as groceries, babysitting, and entertainment. Once the money in that envelope is gone, you can’t spend any more.  

Goodbudget brings envelope budgeting into the digital world through your smartphone device. If the app seems to force you to write down every single expense that you make, that’s the whole point! With Goodbudget, you curb your spending and become more aware of your purchases. The free version allows you to manage up to 20 envelopes, sync one bank account, and keep one year of transaction history. Goodbudget is available for Apple and Android devices.  


  • Envelope Budgeting System
  • Connect Bank Accounts
  • Cross-platform
  • Graphs and Reports of your spendings


  • Slightly complex and clunky UI
Price: Freemium. The plus model will cost you $6/month or $50/year.
Thoughts: If you are familiar with the envelope budgeting technique, with Goodbudget you will feel right at home. Even if you are not, this is a great app to get started with and get full control over your money and how you spend it.
