Updates after issues fixed... This is hands down the best finance app all around. Their customer service is phenomenal! I finally have ONE place for ALL my accounts. One thing I do hope to see in the future is easier refreshing of the accounts. It appears you can refresh a few different ways but nothing happens unless you go into the account settings and refresh within there.
Update 2/24/17: Pocketguard is back to its old self and better. If you're looking for an app to help with the simpler side of budgeting and prefer smart spending to obsessive penny-tracking, this is definitely one to try. It doesn't 'mom' me to death with guilt-trips if I spend a couple extra bucks at the bar one night, but still lets me know what I've got to spend to make sure I pay my bills and meet my savings goals. Long as it continues behaving, I'll continue using it :).
I have spent 3 days trying to connect my accounts to no success. It constantly sits there in the 'Connecting and Synchronizing' screen; one connected right, another connected but says it can't obtain all transaction data, and 4 other institutions continue to stall out. I don't have the patience to diagnose this nuisance further than I already have.
The pro here is the beautiful UI. I wish I could use this app. Unfortunately, it's hardly viable because of all the weird glitches. It took a LOT of work to get my accounts to link successfully. First, I couldn't get authentication codes. Next, if I got authentication codes by text, I'd have to move away from the app to retrieve it, prompting me to try to get a new one, in an endless loop. I finally bypassed this by changing the text preview options on my phone so I could read the code without exiting the app. Even after solving that, I had to restart my phone every time I wanted to add a new account. Annoying, but you only have to set it up once. Now that I'm in the app and linked up properly, though, it's just getting a bunch of transaction names wrong. For a second, I thought it was alerting me to unauthorized transactions, but no... transactions at Petsmart come up as Midas, charitable donations as lawn care - all things that are clearly stated by my primary account statement... and I can't find a way to correct it, either. There's no point in a budgeting app that requires you to log into all of your original accounts to decode it.
Easy to use, nice interface. But hard to understand my budgeting and spending trends.
Consistent sync errors on the app end, claims my credentials are incorrect but they were confirmed twice.
• Insights got a brand new #hashtags report. Add hashtags to transactions notes and check how much you spend on #MorningBite or #Yoga month-over-month.
• More budgeting flexibility. Adjust your upcoming bill amount for a penny-accurate planning.
• Review transactions that fall into spending limits you set up to find out what exactly made you exceed a limit.
• Add missing information right in the app to bring closer the moment when we lower your bills.
