What's New in Version 2.1.8
Added "Investment" type to list of account types.
Excellent concept, needs improvement but never gets updated
The simplistic layout of the app and wide range of capability are the high points of this app. Also, I have never had issues with the servers being down as other commenters have and I use the app daily. I was a premium subscriber for six months. I have been using for over 1.5 years hoping for an update to allow this app to reach its potential. No luck. I am now searching for a new app to manage my personal finances. The website functions as I would hope, but the iPhone app is garbage. It is slow! It has to slowly load your accounts from the server every time the app is opened. If you try and add a transaction before it has loaded accounts then you will key everything in only to have to start over once you try to select an account to find no options listed (because it didn't finish syncing). If you are looking for a checkbook app that you can quickly enter transactions as you make them, then look elsewhere. These developers need to get with the times. iOS 8 is out now and the last app update was iOS 6. If the iPhone app were as good as the website this would easily be a five star rating and I would still be a premium subscriber. But considering the utterly pathetic iOS app and the fact that the developers won't fix it, I am highly disappointed.
Nice concept, terrible execution
I hung on and stubbornly used this app for 6+ mos. Now looking for new app. It had great promise but is slow and clunky, crashes often, and the functionality is terrible. I've never gotten an update in that entire time, so I guess the developer has jumped ship? One of the most annoying features is that you can't pull up all unjived items at once to mark them off. So if you wrote someone a check and they cashed it 3 mos later, you will have to slowly scroll through pages and pages of transactions to get back to that month. Ridiculous...
Additionally, the jive button is terrible, if you have fat thumbs you will no doubt accidentally open the transaction instead of simply jiving it.
You should also be able to pull up selected periods of transactions, but this app does not have the capability to do that. So good luck if you want to to double check some items from a few months ago.....it might take you an hour
to go backwards that far.
Thumbs down and very disappointed, and kicking myself for stubbornly using it for so long.
Missing one thing
I absolutely love this app and the computer version. I use this everyday to manage all my accounts. The only thing I believe this new version is missing is a faster way to jive from the register page. An easy swipe and click would be so much easier than having to open each transaction in order to jive it. Other than that, this app is so quick and easy and sooooo convenient!
