    "I use Daily Budget Original several times a day! You just give it your income, how much you want to save, and a breakdown of expected expenses. Then, bam, you can clearly see how much you have to spend freely that day or even the entire month. It's very clean looking, and it performs excellently on mobile devices. It's great if you don't want to provide your personal information like bank accounts. It's just a helpful tool to allow you to budget better. I highly recommend it!"

    "This app is absolutely terrible. I found it hard to navigate around in and after I did find what I was looking for, it took an act of congress for it to load properly. I would suggest looking into some Quicken options and steer clear of this one."
