  • Helps predict cash flow Oct 7, 2020

    By greyhdeujgdhkgdd
    Edit part 2 - turns out the export issue was related to my ISP, not the app. I changed the email associated with the app and all is right again. So giving this app 5/5. It does exactly what I need it to do - let’s me enter future expenses (and doesn’t charge to enter repeating bills!) so I can see what cash I should have available in the future. I can’t find any other app that does this! Plus, you can easily see what you’ve been spending money on for any previous time period. “How much did I really spend on Starbucks last month?” (Answer: too much of course). How much did I spend on eating out overall last month? How much on gas? It’s more helpful to me than any other financial app! Edit: for the past few weeks I’ve not been able to export my data and I’m not getting any response from the developers through the help page. The export feature is a deal breaker for me so I hope this gets fixed! Original review: I’ve been using Dollarbird for a couple years primarily because it’s one of the few apps that lets you enter future expenses and deposits so you can immediately determine future cash flow. This is critical for me. I also really like that I can export data. One minor complaint: in the app when I select a category it often randomly selects a different category before I hit save. Kind of frustrating! But otherwise a really good app.

    Great app so far for my visual craving brain that needs to see everything on one page. I can now see where all my bills come out and from what paycheck. The only downsidenis that transactions are not entered automatically like some other apps. I also just noticed that the app hasn't been updated since 2018? I hope that doesn't cause any problems down the line because I really like this app.

  • Seriously Best Financial App Ever!!! Feb 20, 2021

    By RealDollarUser
    I discovered Dollarbird about three or four years ago. I echo another user’s comments I can’t understand why mor people don’t use this app. I have uses them all. Most track budgets - as this app does as well - but the calendar cash flow view is simply the most powerful budgeting tool I’ve ever used! Not only can I track my budget against my spending categories but I can control and predict and run budget scenarios quickly. I have never felt more completely in control of my finances. Also the fact that this app does not link to a bank connects you to your financial life and keeps you constantly aware of where you stand. I thought it would be hard or I might forget but that never happens. Also there are reminders to add transactions and the ability to program any type of transactions. Also the new ability to make a duplicate calendar to run budget scenarios: new monthly expenses, buy a new car, change in mortgage/rent, save for a trip, change in salary you name it. The ability to literally see your daily cash flow for months into to future has proven to be a game changer. The new look is the perfect refresh. It keeps all the functionality of the app but updates the visuals in a way the makes the app even more useful and useable. Great work all associated with this app!!

    Great, simple finance management app. The calendar view is ideal as it allows me to see what days I have payments and how much money I have left at the end of each month.
  • Exactly what I was looking for! Sep 11, 2018

    By Cmarkward
    Why aren’t more people using this method?!!? This is the best way that I know of to project expenses. We don’t get consistent bill amounts in a consistent manner. So without having that information, how can you anticipate if you have enough money for the next month? Just because there seems to be enough in your account doesn’t mean that there is. Especially when you factor in that there are five week months. On some of those, you get paid three times per month (factoring in bi-weekly paychecks). But what about the other 5 week months, when you only get paid twice? You still have two factor in an additional weeks expenses, such as gas and groceries. By being able to project out, I can make sure that I have enough in my account. I can’t say enough good things about this method!

  • Used to love this until last update. Jan 4, 2019

    By Vmartin7
    So they fixed the app hiding old transactions, great! However, now the app runs so slowly I cannot stand it. It also duplicates transactions, or doesn’t add them at all. Seriously, whatever update you did a month ago, please take it back. There’s no shame in it, Instagram had to do it last month too. I don’t need to take pictures of receipts, I just need the app to work. You had so many good reviews for a reason, please don’t make me have to find another app! Old review: I’ve consistently used this app almost every day for the last few years to keep track of my budget, but the latest update has me quite frustrated. On the calendar there are little circles on the dates to let you know you’ve missed a scheduled transaction. Well now when I go to update the scheduled transaction it’s not there, but the circle is still there! It’s frustrating because I have all my bills scheduled, but they don’t always leave my bank on the day I schedule them for, so I just update them the next day, but now I can’t see them anymore. If you please fix this I’ll update it to the 5 star rating it deserved before this.

  • DB classic is best Nov 4, 2019

    By Drakuldragon
    DB Classic is wonderful, functions perfectly. Ive used it daily for years with no trouble. One of the last updates to DB classic broke it for iPhone XS screens. I’ve got 10 items recurring on the first of each month, I can no longer scroll through that entire list and check them all off. It stays below the bottom of the screen. Unusable now, forcing me to use this crappy new one or not use recurring items anymore which is the whole point of being able to track expenses. Very unhappy about being forced into the new app from DB classic. What does it mean by “shutting down” oct 27? One of my biggest complaints is adding items on this version. Categories used to be so easy. Now it’s another click and scroll through a tiny window. Horrible in use! So many other “features” this app has are just clunky, unnecessary, and function poorly. I like the addition of photos and online access but having those is not worth dealing with the horrible operation of this app. There was nothing wrong with DB Classic. Forcing happy users to stop using your product is just bad business.

  • New interface is not as good as original Aug 25, 2017

    By tempest26
    Dollarbird classic was such a good expense tracker app. It was simple, easy to use, colourful but very clean looking. I am disappointed that this new version of Dollarbird is inferior to the original despite being able to sync with cloud. Both the calendar and the transactions are larger now, so now you can only see two transactions per day, until you scroll. When you go in the report to see the spending of each category, it is now ordered alphabetically, the original version put them in descending order from most expensive to least, which is much better. This version tries to pack more details in the report but it ends up looking less clean and is harder to read. It also crashes a lot, and being online it is slower to load up than the original. Please please bring the old interface back!

    The concept and execution of this app is brilliant. As someone who moved out for the first time it gives me insights not only on my budget, but also the savings I can have days, weeks, months into the future if I'm careful with my spending. Extremely simple and minimalistic but accomplishes a lot - it also does the basics really well. Despite the name, no currency here so anyone from any country can use it comfortably. Requests: Dark Mode theme, Widgets (even just 1 quick add expenses/income).

  • Old version was better Sep 17, 2017

    By addierosee
    I've used this app religiously for almost 2 years and would even pay for an upgrade with more features but this update is B-A-D! The app constantly crashes! About 40% of the time I try to use it, it will not register the date I click on. It flips to a month or 2 forward. This is soooooo frustrating. The calendar is much more difficult to navigate and click on different dates. Swiping transactions to reconcile them is much more difficult. In the older version it was much smoother. Also you can't compare balances from one month to the next. In the old version if you were looking at the recap for your monthly expenses you could easily swipe from month to month. Why put out an update with LESS features?? Total bummer. I was so pumped to see there was an update but I am now so disappointed that I have spent this much time inputting my data and using it to track my expenses. It now has no benefit for me :-(

  • Extremely powerful tool Sep 30, 2019

    By dstansb
    This app makes financial planning a breeze and is the main tool I use to help me make financial decisions. Minus one star because there are several known bugs that have not been fixed for probably a year now; the development and maintenance of the app seems to be either at snail-pace or has stopped all together. Nonetheless most of the bugs are minor and don’t usually take away from the utility this app provides. The only major bug I recall is that when switching time zones, some calendar items shift a day or two – making the data inaccurate and rendering the app unusable until you’re back to your normal time zone. My workaround is to temporarily change my time zone on my device to my default, if I REALLY need to use the app while traveling.

    This app made money very easy to keep track of, especially since I didnt have to link my credit card to anything which I love. It even can remind me at 5 every night to put in transactions. The only thing that is a little glitchy is that even though all of my transactions lined up perfectly with everything online my balance was exactly 15 dollars off. I'm not really sure if its not rounding up change into the total, but other than that perfect.

  • Buggy, not as clean Sep 9, 2017

    By DeeLamps
    The old dollarbird was so clean and did exactly what I needed. That app seriously turned my personal finances around. This new version had a lot of great things, but it's just so buggy. It freezes and shuts down all the time, you essentially can't use it when you don't have cell service/wifi, when you flip through different months on the calendar it's a 50/50 on whether the next month will actually load, the transfer feature between different account calendars just doesn't work (I try to use it to denote when I'm putting money in my savings), and switching between different calendars also takes two or three tries before it actually loads. I could keep going... Dollarbird classic was absolutely crucial in the last year for me, and it's disappointing to have to switch to this new version and then not have a product that can handle the type of use its users have come to depend on.

  • Preferred classic’s UI, hate the auto-category Dec 9, 2019

    By AppWatch456
    Been using Dollarbird for almost 4 years now. Appreciate being to export the data now but I really miss the classic’s UI so much. If it weren’t that Classic is shutting down at the end of the month, I would have kept using it and not switched over. I also hate how the new version deals with the expense categories. Sometimes it guesses correctly but when I click done, it jumps back to uncategorized. Other times it guesses wrong and when I try to change it, it logs it so now I need to take extra time to go back and edit it again. Other times, it doesn’t guess for an expense I log every week (same exact thing). It’s so inconsistent and unreliable. I’d rather not have thing dynamic, trying to be real time thing. I really miss the classic version.

    Used the old version. Liked it but didn't quite satisfy my needs. Was excited for this version but the release got very delayed. Stopped caring and forgot about it. Then came back to it recently. Was happy to have it back. Even got my wife using it. Of course now that it is part of our weekly budgeting habit, it started crashin on my android phone. It's been a few days. I have the latest version. Still like the app but just don't trust that it's reliable long term.

  • Interface is okay. But crashes all the time Sep 13, 2017

    By itsadrianlin
    Edit: The developers responded to my review so I tested it out again. The autofill is pretty good and the overal system is better. HOWEVER, I can't confirm new transactions on the phone without it crashing. Also, in the chart view, you can't scroll to the next month as you could in db classic. Also, I can't find a way to delete categories I made by accident and now they show up in the auto-suggest. Previous: The original Ui was what was so great about db classic. I could easily find the icon that represented my spending since it was laid out on a grid. Now I have to scroll or really on the unreliable auto select. Please fix.

    I really appreciated this app and used it all the time until the most recent update. After that, the usability took a nosedive. I have to constantly reload the app to get to my current totals, and even that only works after roughly the fifth time. It has become frustrating and almost entirely unusable. I much preferred when it stored the info locally, now it's practically useless.

    Ok so this was exactly what is was looking for when I wanted to replace my quicken checkbook program and just use my cellphone to track my bills and income to project my balances. But this app is buggy.. it is duplicating my bills and after I have loaded in recurring transactions it is not keeping them marked as confirmed and that is confusing me on why not?? And with duplication..? I really need to be able to trust the program I use for spending ☹️ bummed !!!!

  • Updating my review. Nov 13, 2020

    By L33t_23
    If you are like others on this thread that really enjoyed the classic version of Dollarbird but don’t like the new one, look no further than an app called Money Manager by Realbyte Inc. That app is literally perfect in every way in my opinion and is infinitely more powerful and modern that this app. And they even have a free version but you should purchase it for the one time $3.99 price tag. I would even buy it if it was monthly. It is just amazing. I’ve searched for so long for a Dollarbird Classic replacement and I have finally found it. Everyone told Dollarbird’s developers that the classic was much better and they don’t really listen or care so moving on finally!
