I potted begonias, they are in the sun, they get watered every day except if the soil is still wet, but they're not doing good. What elso should I be doing?

I'm not sure exactly which kind of begonias your have- the tuberous rooted ones with big, rose-like blossoms or the smaller flowered fibrous rooted ones, but they both do best in light shade so it may be that you have them in too sunny a spot. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy and feed them with a half-strength soluble fertilizer such as fish emulsion every couple of weeks.
