    "I just got a new home and so my budget is very different from what it used to be. I wanted something where I could quickly enter in amounts and bills and make easy calculations to stay in my budget on the go, and Home Budget Manager Lite does what I need. It's a Lite version, so that makes me wonder what it's missing from a full version, but it does what I need it to anyway."

    "I remember trying out Mint when it first came, thinking it had a lot of potential, but just needed to tie it all together. It did that for a while, then seemed to fall off the rails, as tends to happen to a lot of successful apps: it got too big to properly manage, but too small to support the changes they wanted to make. Not good, and I will be uninstalling."

    "On the surface this looks like it could be handy for my budgeting needs, but there are some things i don't like here. Syncing issues and needing to pay up front for some things are an issue, along with limited support for multiple bank accounts. This would probably do well enough on one device, but i think i can find something a bit more stable and reliable. "

    "I love using this app to budget my family's money. Having a rather large family I sometimes run into the issue of overspending and this app has allowed me to visually see what I'm spending and keep track of where my money is going. It's really allowed me to be wiser with my spending and save money in places that I really don't need to spend money on. "

    "Money Manager Ex is pretty bad attempt at creating an open-source version of a popular piece of personal finance software. Don't waste your time on this one because it's really a shell of a tool compared to something like Mint."
