Been using it since it launched. Like it, don't love it as I've been very on and off when using it. Love the notifications and Sunday reviews as it's a great insight to your spending. However, since they do essentially have that data about your spend, I think there could be so much more you could do with insights that would make us visit the app more. I don't go into the app for the sake of it, only when I'm notified. Overall, you're on the right track, you just need to make the experience more insightful. The design language could use some work too. I love watching this app progress.
Looked amazing at first but the major limitation is the delay of synchronisation of transactions because it cannot sync pending transactions. It's very likely to be an API limitation. 4 stars is not due to this. Although I have donated to the app and not referring it, I wish the app is updated more often. FAQ through the app is still broken. Safely Spend amount is Income - Bills. But when I go through the total safely spent amount, I can't match the amount to what the app calculated. After using the app for two weeks, I manually calculated the Safely Spend amount with 20% savings.
Fantastic app that has helped me track my spendings. A few shortcomings though. The app cannot seem to adjust for pending transactions. This then carries over into the safely spend budget for the next fortnight, causing a misalignment. It then calculates me to be closer to my safely spend limit than I actually am and makes it hard to track actual expenditure. It would be good if dates could be changed for these transactions. The app also does not adjust for inconsistent pay (e.g. I do shift work and my pay changes week to week). It would be good if I could set a consistent savings goal, and my safely spend budget adjusts to suit my pay, bills and savings goals.
updated with 5 star rating to add coles. Shows how hardworking you guys are. Although I had issues in logging in and tried 4 times before I was successful. You only show last one month at the moment. Is that true. Great to have an app that brings together all the banks & cards. Can you please add coles credit card support in the credit cards? That's the only piece left that will make my rating 5.
Makes budgeting and tracking spending easy This app makes tracking your spending very easy as you can log into your accounts. The app then grabs the last 12 months of transaction data from them. Once you've categorised a particular transaction once, it will find similar transactions and apply the same category. If you log in via the browser you can ask the app the 'find' your bills. It will look for expenses that occur regularly. Once bills are identified it will remind you when they're coming up. Highly recommend.
Finally a budgeting app that budgets my way For years I've been using a spreadsheet to work out what I can spend with all my bills taken into account and to keep track of how well I stick to it. It amazed me that I couldn't find an app that did this easily. So thank you! It would be great to see more flexibility with transactions,specifically being able to split one into different categories.
