Ratings and Reviews
Good idea, thankful finally fixed app
I like the idea of Akimbo a lot. Myself and my wife use the cards for budgeting purposes. We each have one card and another one for Kids Activities. We find this works much better than budgeting plus credit cards which for us meant oh it’s the end of the month budget is spent but we really need this let’s just put it on the credit cards whatever.
Also thankful app no longer seems to crash 90% of the time on iPhone X.
Haven’t Gotten to Use It
I haven’t gotten my cards yet, but I was super excited about this app! I signed up and did the setup all from my phone and didn’t have a problem. Now the app won’t even open on my phone without crashing. Need fixes please, I haven’t even started with it!
UPDATE: Got my cards, then couldn’t load them without submitting a bank statement even though I linked the account through my bank’s website. I already proved I could access the account, so how is a statement providing any additional security? Ended up cancelling this service without ever being able to use it. Disappointing.
Positives: you can deposit checks, fees can be avoided easily, the app is decent, and is Apple Pay capable.
Negatives: You have to deposit checks through another app, same day deposits have a fee, no chip card, and deposit limits can cause inconvenience.
Overall: decent. Haven’t had any problems.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
