Popular Feature: Tool to forecast how every day decisions might affect your score

I usually hit "not now", but here goes. I'm impressed and satified with the information provided simply on one screen. I haven't had the app for more than a few weeks and i have no phone/app related issues so that's a plus! If you've ever been a capital one customer then you already expect quality service across the board! I also like the creditwise app because there's another cap one app that's uncompatibile with my current phone so at least i have some "e" connection to my money!

Makes building credit much easier! I love that I get alerts any time there is a change in my credit history or my credit score. I can use the simulator to see how actions will affect my credit. Overall, its peace of mind knowing that I can check any time, anywhere, and its completely free. I don't get all the persistent ads trying to get me to upgrade service or buy anything. It's an awesome app!

This app has a simulator that allows me to estimate my credit score Once I pay my debt remaining debt or would even like to just make payments. This app tells me the how many cards I have, how much I owe on each card. and how long my accounts for each card has been open. It has a built in credit checker. They give you multiple ideas on how to eliminate your credit card debt along with many other features. Definitely a must have if you are building credit or wanting to apply for new credit cards
