Everything is great except for when the app randomly logs out your account and prompts you to re-enter your password even though you have fingerprint authentication enabled. As someone who uses long and complex passwords that are not easy to remember, this is very annoying. Especially when I want to view my account away from home and do not have access to my paper record of my password.

I hate the way shorter term balance over time is shown. The Y scale is zoomed so far out that a 20% change can still look like a flat line. I'll change my rating and review when this is fixed. Edit: it's fixed! The interface isn't entirely intuitive, and the fee is a little high unless you have a large amount invested, but I otherwise like it.

its okay if you're lazy and can't follow a budget. if you can't handle the concept of paying yourself first this so might help. You don't have all the options you would with a full fledged broker. Fidelity, Robinhood, TD Ameritrade, and others don't require a subscription fee. they have fee based services but they're not required. the app design is okay, the service price is unnecessary.
