I DL'ed the app a few days ago to encourage my daughter to start investing. App has had login problems, and yes, I was using the correct PW. App asks me to set up pin, but then tells me there is an "unknown" problem and can't be set up. App asks to verify bank acct after two micro deposits. App is non-responsive when info is entered into depo-verification screen. Raises serious concerns about overall security and viability of app. Also, why can't I buy whatever stocks I want instead of curated EFTs that may yield lower returns?
This app is great if you are absolutely terrible at saving money, such as myself. The dashboard is super easy to use and understand. What people say is a bad thing, slow at pulling money out, is actually a great thing because you will be waiting for your withdrawal for 4-5 days. This account is for investing for your future and it will take a while to see your money grow but it does grow with only change being invested. Overall I believe this is a great app and rate it for ease of use and automatic deposits.
Still early, ive only been using it for a couple of months now. So far so good on my end with investing, the app is surprisingly user friendly ( for an investing app). Once ive been using it for another 6 months or so ill update my review to be more precise. That should help those still on the fence about whether trying it out is worthwhile or not.
This app is pretty great but not great if you are planning to use this as a retirement fund. Unless you set up a recurring investment with a decent amount of money monthly. Overall pretty addicting seeing your money grow! Use my code to get an extra $5 dollars!! SUE8WS
I've had the app for a week now and would really like to try it out but its really giving me problems. I've been able to link my Bank account for additional Investments but for some reason it won't let me link my bank account for Roundup Investments. I find this very irritating. What am I doing wrong?
My bank account has to be relinked multiple times a day. What good is the app if I have to constantly relink my bank in order for it to work correctly? The whole point is to invest without really thinking about it, but in order for it to work properly, I have to check that my bank account is properly linked before making purchases. It's too much of a pain to deal with.
