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'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 agree, I have had MoneyWell, it is more descriptive overall.

I would agree with you *if* they ever give us the update that's been promised for some time now. They're missing a great sales opportunity by dragging out the 2.0 release because some people won't wait much longer.

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
