Awesome app, best account integration I've seen to date. Makes managing the budget on a day today basis super quick. I've a dilemma on how I go about importing 10+ years of data sitting in Banktivity without having to go back and recategorise/align everything, could do with some pointers?
Warning if you use the safe spend: The "safe" spend pocketbook calculates for you EXCLUDES bills quarterly or longer. As a result of this gap, the missed bills will eat into what it says you should have "saved". If you are targeting to save a certain amount each period, you need to increase the amount "saved" = you saving target + missed bills. I have raised this twice with the support team, and have been brushed off twice getting told it will "skew actual spending", even though I pointed out bills are excluded from the safe spend and not including it skews what you thought you saved! I will keep raising it so no one is caught out with a "safe" spend that isn't safe enough to consider all bills.
Numbers not consistent with what I see in my bank account. For example, Balance shows an amount that is different to my actual balance and yes after syncing. Other odd inconsistencies mean I can't use this. Also realised that sharing my account details with an app provider is dangerous business in this day and age when not even the big players can safeguard their customers details. Uninstalled
Ffs... Could you please change it so that when I'm sorting the categories it is by default "only affects the one transaction".. It is a real pain when I finally sort all my Woolworths transactions out how I want them, then a month later I forget to click the apply to this transaction only and have to go back 3 months and resort everything!!! I've literally punched a wall because of this!! Other than that it is amazing...
Updated 17/5: Initially failed at the first hurdle as it didn't ask for enough detail to synch with my bank (token authentication was not requested) which subsequently locked my internet banking. Since rectified by calling my bank, resetting my login and disabling token authentication (for login only). Would be great if there were a way around this. App seems to be working OK, will give it a few weeks to determine whether it's worth the risk of keeping token authentication turned off.
Great potential but between my wife and I using it separately for our shared bank account it wouldnt give consistent spend data between us. Made it impossible when trying to work out amount left in weekly budget. Would be amazing if it worked correctly, but just not quite reliable enough to persist with. Seems to have alot of error messages also which is never reassuring for something you've logged in with your bank details.
