Ratings and Reviews
Seem to be having a problem setting an expiry date. Every time I input a date in the future or select never expires the app tells me I can't set a date in the past stopping me from going any further. Doh. I'm sure this never happened on the previous version. Apart from this annoyance which pretty much makes the app unusable it has the potential to be a pretty decent tool to keep track of your finances.
Does exactly what I was hoping
Opened a new joint account with my partner and was confused how to track what was coming out and when. This simple app helps you record payments and has flexible alerts telling you when they are due.
Great app, please update and consider improvements
I’m very please with this app, it’s a pity as it doesn’t seem to be regularly updated (last update was completed 9 months ago...).
I’d give it 5 stars if it would allow the following:
1) Ability to set the overview of the pending direct debits/ week, rather than /month (as I get paid weekly and I therefore need to budget for each week, rather than for the whole month).
2) Support for the larger screen of the iPhone X
I’d personally be happy to pay for the app, if it would lead to regular updates and improvements.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
