  • Some suggestions

    by 所思

    I like this app. But would like to see some improvement in the updated version: The expense categories should be sorted alphabetically and grouped by the first letter. Recently, I upgraded my phone. How I hope that I can export my old records and import them into Budget 101 on my new phone. Could you please add the features? Thanks a lot.

  • iOS7 support

    by Breanna G.

    I love this app but it needs to be updated to support iOS7 so the keyboard pops up.

  • Pleased

    by Lord gargantuan foulspleen.

    I like how simple and easy to use it is. Saw it in appsgonefree, you should get that, too. I am a dog walker and it helps to be able to track the last payments of my clients.

  • Nice App

    by Cattywumpus

    I looked at your support site to see if this app will sync with my other devices (which is what I need), but couldn't find any help.

  • Great app!

  • Changes

    by Daniellemachado

    Love the idea of this app and how simple yet useful it is!!! A few changes though: Password protection options iPad version

  • Great!!!

    by DitoK1990

    Just downloaded. Awesome app. Simple and plain. Hopefully will help me with expense tracking. No crashes noticeable so far. Only issue is that if i add expense for future time (coming in few days) i wont see it in report. Please fix it and its a 5 star app!!!

  • Just what I want!

    by bootz4me

  • New Year????

    by Dwite E

    Today is Dec. 31, I entered my Jan. 2013 budget amounts but I can't see them. Where is 2013?

  • Change the icon. Looks horrible!

    by csr6679yh

    The icon looks terrible. Please change it trust me it won't take long to make a good looking icon. Thanks

  • Really good app

    by Geyermj

    Not sure about the other reviews, but this app works fine on my 3GS w/iOS6. You can edit past entries, make your own categories, leave notes with each transaction...and it has a small file size (for those people with 8 GB phones). I'd recommend it! Only complaint I have is report lists transactions in alphabetical order by category. Would be nice to choose a listing by date.

  • Thanks!!!

    by LoveMusicLifeFaith

    Thank you for the update!! It's great :D

    @Nataloonancy - You use the swipe-to-delete feature on whichever cell you want to delete. We apologize for not writing this into the description earlier. The SimpleSimonApps Support Team

  • Great app!

    by Simple SimonH

    Nice and simple app!

  • n/a

    by Budgetseeker

    Nice app, but it would be great to be able to input repeating expenses without having to re-enter them each month. Also, is there an update which goes beyond 2012?

  • Simple and effective!

    by Lifrenc1

    I love this for keeping myself accountable day to day. Maybe your next upgrade could be the ability to choose multiple categories for a report without having to choose 'all categories?' This feature would be greatly appreciated!

  • Need iOS 7 support!!

    by Logan Pflibsen

    I use this app all the time because it's so simple. But I just updated to iOS 7 and the numbers for the password unlock as soon as you open it, don't show up.

  • Simple

    by Staufr

    Very basic and to the point. If your simply just looking to track expenses, it's a good app. I was looking for something more feature rich so it is a toss up between the apps EasyCost and Cost. Budget 101 simply lacks too many useful features to be truly useful.

  • No 2013

    by Planning on next year

    App covers 2010 to 2012.... No column for 2013. I hope that's not a sign.

  • Problems

    by saucy13

    App will not open and cannot get to support page.

  • Crashes

    by Fuller1

    Won't open on iPhone. Turned phone off and back on and still won't open. Until this is fixed don't bother with this app.

  • Won't even open...

    by abc-xyz-123

    Beta test your apps. Giving them away free for us to beta test is a WASTE OF OUR TIME. Deleted.

  • iPhone user

    by John from Pennsy

    It looked good and simple. Entered 3 cash purchases in 3 days. Simple to use. Day 4, this app will not open on my iPhone. Shut it off twice and restarted. Nothing happens when I tap the icon. One day later, still will not open.

  • Useless app

    by Namgray

    No better than using a piece of paper. A waste of money. No way to edit entries, can only delete them and then start over. No way to enter repeat deposits or expenses. Absolutely useless!

  • Enter amount

    by GPLeite

    I've try this but when I wanted to right the amount didnt answer, I choose the value but didn't write

  • Much to be desired...

    by Nataloonancy

    I accidentally entered something twice and there's no way to delete it. After buying this app, I'm kinda bummed at the limited features. There's no way to erase a deposit? Really? I don't think I will use this app. All you can do is add transactions and add deposits. I can do this on a piece of paper, or even use my "notes" app with out paying $1.99 for it. Dang it.

  • Easy to use

    by Guy number 8

    Great app, but it would be nice if you could email yourself the reports? Thanks for adding the email function, stoked!
