No good

Downloaded pocket guard and input my income and expenses and when I got to the page where you can input your goals, it told me I did not have sufficient income even when my Income was 900 and my expenses were 700. Tried three times but got the same result. It said I needed more income and it gave me a negative amount. No good. I deleted the app.

The bugs, slowness, and lack of reliability aren’t worth it

This app is a really cool idea and if it worked well I’d continue my paid subscription. However, there are a couple big issues: - It’s really slow - almost unusable. This seems newer. When I first started using it it wasn’t this slow. Just scrolling through transactions is so tedious because it freezes and then scrolls way further than you want - It doesn’t always catch when your accounts are out out of date or not updating. For example, I have one account that just won’t seem to update any transactions from the last 6 months but PocketGuard isn’t showing any errors with the connection. This type of ‘silent’ failure to update really takes away from the value because I can’t trust what I see in the app. -There also seems to be pretty frequent errors with accounts where I have to remove and re-add them or re-enter credentials. This is probably more related to the external accounts and their security but it’s still annoying. All in all, I find myself using the actual bank apps more than PocketGuard due to these issues even though I’d prefer to have it all in one place and use PocketGuard.

Love this app!!

This app has been exactly what I’ve been looking for when it comes to budgeting. I love that I can see my spending patterns on a monthly basis too. I did decide to purchase the lifetime option, and love that I can change transaction dates (especially for end of the month transactions) creating my own categories, and being able to split my transactions. It gives me a much more clear and accurate view of my spending. The hashtags has been great too so if I’m paying via credit card I can know what that specific I transaction was for. All in all, I love this app!

Too many bugs. Poor support.

This app has potential but it’s so flawed at this point that it’s virtually useless. Many many transactions are duplicates so your budget updates are always wrong. Some transactions are repeated two and three times. I written to the support email several times but I always get the same bot response. These developers have a good idea but a terrible execution. Which is too bad. I really wanted a portable budget app that gave me ACCURATE updates on my spending. This app does the very opposite.

There’s no way to view pervious months budgets. Also, how do you save for things like car insurance that’s paid every six months? Support said to make a manual saving goal but because it looks like my budget is overdrawn from car insurance I can’t make any savings goals until my budget is balanced! I like that I can customize categories. Syncing with bank is nice but takes several minutes to sync just a few transactions.

Good app

It is being very helpful in tracking expenses. The only downside is that it runs 1-2 days behind the time of the actual transactions. By the time the weekend is over and transactions load on Monday night or Tuesday, it’s hard to remember what we spent on Friday and why. I wish it was more real time, like a banking app. However, I think for the most part, it is helping us.

Nice App

Need improvement, but still a very handy app.

App not updating account info automatically

Every day when I open the app I have to manually remind the app to refresh my bank account data to the current day. It used to automatically update around 5am daily. Also, it’s taking longer and longer (upwards of 3-5 minutes) for the data from the bank to cross over to the app. This used to happen within a few seconds. I have downloaded the most current version with the same issue.
