First budget app I actually understood how to use, and it really is so clear to understand. Shows everything you need to know, and the layout is easy to navigate. Highly recommend!

I changed banks just to use the app in full.

I definitely find the quick-look at how much I’m spending on certain categories to help me reign it in.
