I came across Porte trying to find another bk, decided to try this instead. SO glad I did! There are several features you'd never get with a traditional bank and they're all great! Instant transfer (even from external accounts), physical AND virtual debit cards to use for spending, but can be deleted after your payment to help prevent theft/ fraud. Those features alone had me!! Easy to navigate, no fees, good security. Exactly what I needed & so simple to open.Take 5 mins,sign up! You'll love it

3% saving rate is amazing! Top of the class! App is great. Couple of suggestions for improvement would be to make transferring money out more easier. Also make the savings rate transparent in the app..some place where we can easily see the current savings rate (unless I am not looking right). Hopefully u don't change the savings rate to .25% one day and not inform us.

Every once and awhile, the app logs me off “due to an error”. The app seems to log me off whenever I tried to open the app through the notification. Once I log in, instead of taking me to what I selected in the notification, it takes me to the dashboard. Then when I look at the push notification again, the message in the notification disappears leaving an empty notification. So I am unable to fully read any push notifications. It would be nice if I also got an email about account changes.
