Ratings and Reviews
Good Budgeting App
I needed an app that would allow me to setup budget categories and monitor my spending (based on accounts I linked to it). It does that and it does it fairly well. I do have to constantly go in everyday to update the category for which it falls in, but I’m just very particular in how I want my expenditures categorized. I may try using the hashtag feature to simplify things. I also like how it notifies you when you get close to hitting your limits. Moreover it’s all free! There’s a paid version to unlock more features, but for me those aren’t necessary.
The only downside I’ve noticed is that it doesn’t update or show your expenditures in real time. Meaning, I usually have to wait 2-3 days before an expense is posted which can be frustrating when needing to know where you stand at any given moment in terms of your budget... which is sort of the purpose of the app right?
I really like the idea of having an app that tells you how much is safe to spend without endangering your bills money. It does a pretty good job of categorizing automatically, the need to re-categorize is minimal. However, it’s detecting one of my savings accounts as checking and I have found no way of changing that. Adding such function would be great. Also, maybe allowing us to add an expense for the future would be nice. I added money to the cash account, which was reserved for a transaction a few days into the future. It didn’t let me add anything for the future. So I’ll have to come into the app when it happens in October and add it which doesn’t really make sense. Overall the apps is great, and it’s the closest I’ve found to what I want which is an app like Level Money which is now gone. There is still room for a few improvements.
Great assistant in managing your finances
Every transaction is placed into a specific category (in 9/10 cases it's accurate) so you have a great insight on how much you have spent on coffee shops and books, on clothing and sports etc. Having the full picture will help you to understand how do your spending habits look like now and how do you need to change them. To be honest, it was difficult to stay on budget even after a couple of months of using the app. I was really shocked when having seen my 'in my pocket' negative a week before the next month starts. I couldn't believe I'd overspent with my credit card so much... PocketGuard won't change your life, only you can do it. But this app is a great assistant which definitely makes this change go easier.
