I have used this program since 2009, when I converted from a paper and pen envelope system of budgeting, and could not be happier with how well it works for planning and tracking our spending. Recently had the first occasion to contact customer support, and my problem was taken in hand and solved in less than 24 hours. Very highly recommended.

I've used this Budget app since 2011. Every now and then I'll have a look at other available apps, but can never bring myself to switch, mostly because others just seem clunky or more difficult to use. Snowmint's budget app is really easy to use and makes it easy to see at a glance what your money is set aside for and what is "available" to spend. It's really helped me live within my means and ensure that I've always got money "set aside" for any bills that come up.

Excellent app for managing your money before you spend it. This app and method of budgeting and spending has saved us many times. I have been using this app for years and it have never failed me. I use it now on my Mac with the iPhone version as well so I always have my budget with me and know what I can spend. Great tools!

I have been using this program for a year and cannot recommend it enough. Zero-based budgeting, also called the envelope system, has revolutionized my budgeting. Snowmint Budget make it easy. You set up how your income is allocated,then when you get paid, Budget automatically sends the money to the proper envelopes. If I go grocery shopping and want to know how much I have left, I simply check the envelope. The amount is displayed on the front. The program will schedule bills and it's easy enough to check when one is due. I also like that once you buy the program, you receive all future updates and upgrades for free. If I had one complaint, it's that other programs look better. Snowmint just doesn't appeal to me visually. Still, for everything I have gained from this program, I guess I can overlook that. =)

I have used both budget and Moneywell and I personally prefer Moneywell. I like the bar charts it generates because it makes it easier to compare how much your spending changes month to month on different categories (buckets). Budget is a really good program too though and is very easy to use and set up. I guess its just a matter of personal preference. Try both and see which one you like.

I bought this last year, but to be fair I never got around to using it because I didn't feel like getting into the help file extra to learn how to use it. Yada, yada learning curve. So it might be a great app, but I downloaded MoneyWell and it had a bunch of online video tutorials so I'm going to use that because it seems to use the same envelope system but with buckets.

A comment about the guarantee. I bought this program last year, but really couldn't get along with it. I emailed the developers within the 60 day trial & had my money refunded within a day or so. Brilliant service.

This program is worth every penny. Managing your money with the envelope metaphore if far superior to using all the Quicken look-a-likes out there. This allows you to better control your spending before you spend the money. Quicken and the rest are just tools for reporting where the money has already gone. They do not help you segregate your funds to appropriate envelopes so that money does not get spent where it should not be spent. Awesome program. I am much less stressed when I can see that we already have our mortage money set aside and I did not have to open multiple bank accounts to do so.

I love this product! I don't really want this to sound like one of those awful testimonials, but I've gotta give credit, where credit is due. My husband and I have never been really good with money because we've never really had to worry about it, but we decided to buy a house. We knew that we would need to be very careful...and after a few failed attempts using other programmes and even this one (not the programme's fault...I just went too complicated ie. Multiple accounts, credit cards and investments) I finally mastered most of the features of Budget and am very pleased to say that we purchased our house and will be debt free (except our mortgage, of course) in three months. If you want a relatively simple way to watch your pennies, this is the best option I've found

I had tried this program in the past, and decided to forgo using it. However, with its recent advances, it has met many of my personal financial needs in a nice package. There is a little bit of a learning curve, but if you are serious about using the program, you shouldn't have any problems understanding the logic of the programs flow. The customer support is stellar! I can't remember getting such great support on any other product that I have ever purchased in my life. The customer support is well worth the price of the software. Also, they are constantly upgrading and fine-tuning the program, month after month. In my opinion, they are a benchmark of customer support. For my personal needs, this program alone is not enough. I still need the online capabilities of a Quicken. However, if you don't do much with online banking and bill pay, then this program should be just fine. It's too bad there isn't some swift interface between Budget and Quicken. Then everything would simply be perfect!

I have used Budget for about 3 months now. The learning curve was a bit steep but once I started to understand the envelope concept and how it was different from what I was used to usage got much easier and now I wonder how I ever worked with anything else. For the first time I really do know where my money is and where I am overspending. Well worth the time spent figuring it out.

For me, a difficult little programme. Totally unintuitive and unproductive. After going through the initial setup with bank accounts etc and playing around for a while I quit the programme. Upon a restart Budget had 'forgotten' all my data, and wanted me to do the setup again... I don't want to bag this programme because I see some users have had a very positive expereince. Obviouly some users get a lot out of it. I was not one of them. All I can say is that I was looking for something I thought my partner could use (nice and easy), but this programme is far from easy to learn. Expect to dedicate plenty of time reading the docs and getting very frustrated etc. Like me your better off writing a few simple spreadsheets in Appleworks...

An absolutely invaluable app. This program helps you manage your paycheck in ways that quicken never could. The envelope system allows me to plan for events/bills way in advance. I have a much better conception of my financial picture because of this app's organizational features. Also, this developer is wonderful, providing updates frequently. I only give 4 stars for ease of use because there are so many features that don't exist in other finance apps. 5 stars for everything else.

I'm only writing this review because I see that the user "May" reviewed twice, giving Budget begative reviews both times. Giving it poor grades once is cool, it doesn't seem to meet her (?) needs. Giving it poor marks twice seems kind of slimy to me. I'm not going to write this twice, under different names, just so that my opinions count twice as much as everyone else's. I'm a registered user of both Quicken & budget. Personally I like the way budget works. It is completely unlike any other accounting program that I've tried, but it is extremely easy to use to track where your money is going. If you're interested in the concept, download the free trial. If you like it, buy it, but if you don't like it/get it/ understand how it works after a few hours, just move on. There are other programs out there & (IMHO) no one should waste more than a few hours out of their life learning a specific piece of software. Budget is designed to make life easier. If it doesn't seem to be working, then it's probably not the right software for you.

I would certainly like to try out the new 4.5.2 version, but when I mount the image, and drap the app to my applications file, it will not start up when I double click on the application file. Help...anyone else have this problem? I am using my PowerBook G4, 1 GhZ, 512 Mb, Mac OS X 3.8. I won't obviously try to rate the application until I can get it to run.

As others have said before me, this envelope concept is a little unusual. Nonetheless, once you get used to it, it is very simple and straightforward! For the past few months, Budget has successfully helped me control my spending, and know what and where i am buying. Great software, with only a few annoying little bits: the price autocomplete is not very well implemented, in my opinion... This is well worth the price, but even without paying, the program doesn't bug you too much (only when you exit), which is one of the reasons why i ended up registering it... :) thanks...
