Envelopes: Budget Manager App Details

Envelopes is a virtualisation of the envelope budgeting method. It is simple to use and allows you to keep a close eye on where your money is being spent, but without the need to keep paper envelopes filled with cash around. ∙ Create unlimited envelopes and order them to your preference. ∙ Set up a budget with Quick Deposits and distribute your income to all your envelopes at once. ∙ Create withdrawals, deposits, and transfers with custom memos to track your spending. ∙ Secure your data with a passcode, and use Touch ID if supported by your device. ∙ Transfer all your data from Envelopes 2.

  • Solid 3/5

    I bought this app because Envelopes 2 finally died. Without warning. I didn’t even know this version existed until I went to the App Store to find an easy, similar envelope budgeter (so uh... thanks for the A+ customer service, guys.) It’s definitely not worth $7, but for it is it’s great. EXCEPT that it’s missing two QUITE IMPORTANT facets that were in Old Faithful: Notes, and Auto-Budget. Yeah yeah, if you put the same amount in, don’t set a budget for it, blah blah blah. But if you don’t know how much you’re getting each pay, it’s SO MUCH EASIER to Auto-Budget and see what’s leftover for saving or spending! Notes alone would be useful, but without both it’s just crippling. For $7 I would expect full functionality and - as a whim- more than 10 envelope colors (two of which are nearly identical??)

    I've only been using this app for one pay period, but I'm seeing an immediate effect on how I spend! I like that I can move money between envelopes, and change amounts any time I want- I freelance, so my budget is different every two weeks. It's very simple, which is good, but I wouldn't mind a more modern aesthetic; I think the $6.99 is a little steep for the app, but am still happy with my purchase. The one thing I would really like to see is a "reset" option. I don't like seeing my last transactions from previous pay periods, or having to fake a withdraw to get it down to zero. Hopefully this could become an option for those who like a fresh start each paycheck!
  • Liked the old version much better.

    By Feffy Borth
    The concept of this app is great. It's simple and functional. It's an easy way to digitally separate financial categories "envelopes." It is extremely manageable compared to other apps I have tried. The things I don't like - the font is much smaller than the old version. AND NOW I'm finding out they're removing the "NOTES" functionality of this app. CRAZY! I used that all the time. This app is way too overpriced. The old version was much better, with many more options - but is "no longer supported" I sincerely wish they would allow both versions to remain stable and give people their options.
  • Very easy to upgrade from previous App

    By vtspoon
    I love this app. I have used the previous app for years now. Just one complaint, I loved being able to mark my deposits as weekly, monthly, annually or just being able to make my own titles. Very minor, but I can get use to the newer version.
  • Best one yet

    By Jbush76#
    Tried so many other apps, not only is this the best one by far its one of only two that actually does what I need....simple envelope budgeting. I think the best part is that its very hands-on and leave the control with the user rather than making assumptions. The only thing I wish it had was synchronization between multiple devices.
  • Easy way to track spending

    By 555thom
    I've used this app for a little over a month now and it has helped keep me from over spending. It has a clean appearance and is easy to use. When I make a purchase with my debit card or checking account I add the expense in the app right then in a couple seconds. Much easier than having real cash envelopes and dealing with that mess. First set up a budget and at the beginning of each month fill your envelopes with the categories you determine then record each transaction. I made it 26 days before running out of money, without the help of this app it would have been a lot less.
  • Great app, easy to use

    By Team CapOne
    I love this app, it is has a very simple design and is easy to use. It doesn't get in the way of keeping track of your money.
  • Great app but …

    By Doug & Ange
    This is a really terrific app for keeping track of money that is in your bank account that is earmarked for specific categories to keep you from spending it. I love the simplicity of the app, it's not complicated. I think the colors of the envelopes are a little funky but that's just a personal note. The one issue that seems to me could easily be resolved that I really wish they would take seriously, is "iCloud syncing". I would like to be able to pick up my iPad and see exactly where I left off on my iPhone. Or to allow my wife to be able to pick up her iPhone and see what is in the Envelopes simultaneously. This would give the app five stars.
  • Great app missing only one thing

    By Sictabity
    This app is much better than the last envelope app I used. The only downside it's not being able to have multiple users use the same instance. My husband has to text me each transaction so I'll know to enter it. Otherwise I think the app is perfect.
  • Love it

    By meganlashea
    I love this app. Of all budget apps I can find, this is the simplest one and that's what makes it my favorite. It's pretty much like having physical envelopes with cash. My only complaint is that I wish it could be shared between two devices so that me and my husband both can see the updated balances as soon they happen.
