I really liked this the first few weeks. Now I’m just over it. This app never refreshes my account summary despite doing manual refreshes. It’s still stating I have 1700 in my checking and has said that for 6 weeks despite numerous paycheck deposits and bills paid. Going to delete and find another budget app that’s superior.
Once again an app that does only half. You’ve got to buy premium if you want this to do a budget. Deleted.
First, thank you to the developer! This is the app so many have tried to be but failed in the deployment because of complexity. This is a really simple clear roadmap for your budget and it can help with those pesky subscriptions that we all forget about - excellent app!
The newest app version has taken away the best feature- showing you what is “in your pocket” on a daily & weekly level. Now it only shows big and bold what you have left for the month. This is near useless. I got this app so I could do daily budgeting, which is now ruined. Please change back or allow the swipe feature that allowed you to change between a daily, weekly and monthly level view.
Not very ironed out yet, but a good entry into the budgeting space.
I automatically delete all apps that dont have landscape view
Every time I try to use the app I have to continuously keep connecting my bank and I did not know this when I paid for premium. I asked for a refund because I’m not going use the app anymore and they refused. I’m confused if I no longer like the app shouldn’t I get a refund? Thought this would be a good app but wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
Love the functionality of the app itself. I love that I can characterize my transactions and track how much I’m spending in each category while creating budgets for areas I want to cut down in. I also love that this provides you an “In Pocket” number so I can be sure to not overspend by the end of the month. For reference I have the Pro version and it’s worth it! Edited: I used to have some issues with bank connectivity that caused my budgeting to be off by +\- $100 which was frustrating. However the PocketGuard team fixed the issue and I’m enjoying this app again with confidence my budgeting is accurate 🙂
So I’ve looked at a lot of budgeting apps. I downloaded maybe 10 and this is my favorite of them all. It’s free and while the pro version is a bit too expensive, I can confidently say it’s the most unique and easy to use app with lots of great features. (The free version)
Heard about this from my SO, it’s easy to use & free. The only reason I gave 4 stars was bc I couldn’t add store credit cards onto my Pocket guard account (an error popped up). Also, I had a spending goal but under goals, I wasn’t able to write that down (ex: I want to spend $100 on groceries each week). This isn’t too much of a problem for me, bc I can keep track of this myself. I just wish I could add my store credit cards. Also, my SO said he couldn’t add his Apple Card so I guess store credit cards not connected to major banks don’t work. However I still think it’s a good app and user friendly.
