I love what this app is trying to be! It is the nicest looking money-managing app I've seen. I wish there were more ways to edit transactions (like renaming, marking them as recurring, or creating notes about them). I wish you could have certain budgets rollover to the next month. For example: my car insurance is billed bi-anually, so I would take that amount and split it 6 ways and make that the budget. The app does have some stability issues, but those will hopefully get worked out soon.

Hi Landon, I'm so glad you're enjoying the app's concept and design! You have some very very fair suggestions as well. Rest assured that we are working on incorporating those capabilities to the platform! Stability improvements are in progress as well. Thanks for the feedback! The Origin Team

So far, so good. Seems like they have a pretty good velocity adding features and improvements. Plaid connections seem pretty stable. They removed the AI part or I am not in the segment for it anymore. I prefer the web app, but the mobile app is convenient. Being able to export csv was a great addition too. Bumped to 5 after response!

Hey Ryan, Thanks a bunch for your review! So glad to hear you're enjoying all of our new product releases and features! Regarding the AI tool, it appears it's not part of your employer benefits at the moment. If you ever have more thoughts, we're all ears! 🚀

Off to a good start! Unfortunately, Plaid is the service used to connect to external accounts, which doesn't communicate with Fidelity, my mortgage, and retirement accounts which has me looking elsewhere. I would love to see custom budget categories. The visuals in this app are excellent and it's well-organized, but not being able to organize my finances the way I want is frustrating. Willing to try again in the future though!

Thank you for your valuable feedback, Eric! Your insights are crucial to us, and we're working hard to enhance your experience. Great news – we're launching custom budget categories later this week! We understand the frustration of not being able to connect with Fidelity via Plaid, and we're actively exploring ways to improve these integrations
