Formerly EEBA, the Easy Envelope Budget Aid, Goodbudget is a personal budgeting app based on the envelope budgeting method. With the envelope system, you put cash into different envelopes, earmarked for certain expense categories, such as "Groceries" or "Entertainment". Once the money is gone from that envelope, you have to wait until next month to refill the envelope and spend in that category. The idea is to help you curb your spending and become more aware of your purchases. With Goodbudget, you can see your budget, track your envelope and bank balances, sync 2+ devices so you can track with friends and family, record your expenses, schedule future and recurring transactions and check your envelope balances before spending.
