I give it 4.5 stars. I really like how intuitive and easy it is to use the app. There are many notes that explain everything! You can see deposits, withdrawals, total gain/loss, net gain/loss, total percentage gain/loss, annualized percentage gain/loss, tax documents, etc. I almost always gain and the automatic management fees are a very low percentage (probably about 1%). My only problem is that it is hard to find where to change the investment percentage stocks and percentage bonds.

Very limited list of external accounts to be synced automatically, manually updating accounts is a pain. Can't project future value of multiple goals together, only each goal individually. Would love to project my future net worth as an individual, not just for each goal. Now, recently, for some reason, the app only shows investment accounts, I can't see the balance of my external cash and credit accounts, forcing me to have to use my computer

The app is clean, easy to use. I'm able to set up an automatic deposit, check my balance, account performance, etc. I had a question a while ago, and ngl i was on hold on the phone for a while until i gave that up and emailed them. To my surprise they were very punctual in replying back and extremely courteous and helpful. So phone isn't the best but customer service was great over email, overall positive experience so far.
