Great concept, and no mishandling of my funds yet. However, the app has two bugs I have noticed so far. 1) Negative balances in loans are shown as positive on the balance screen and 2) Sometimes when linking external accounts, the process bounces back to the login screen without any notification. Then I have to return to the home screen to see a notification that the account needs extra verification. This bug makes adding accounts somewhat tedious.

App is convenient for depositing funds and seeing investment mixes and has a nice UI, but the account links are constantly down! My cc bill hasn't updated in a year, but other accounts I have through the same bank are up to date. I haven't been able to add my new institution for months. This means none of my projections are accurate, so it renders much of the app useless to me. I really liked the projection and goals features a few years ago. Might have to go web only.

I really enjoy the product and have been impressed by how many integrations they have up and running. It's been useful to track assets across a number of different accounts to get a unified picture. Only negatives: - Things occasionally go down, but are easily repaired. - I find myself checking the app just to check, which I don't think is useful or healthy - sometimes I wish there was something more actionable I could do.
