Small but mighty
If you’re looking for an app to help you budget, it’s Cleo. If you’re looking to consolidate your info so you can see everything in one screen, ask Cleo. If you need help saving for anything, ask Cleo.
Cleo may not have the most creative responses yet, and you’ll have to learn some key words and phrases to get the correct answers, but as a work in progress, Cleo really is amazing. She does almost everything I need her to do, and the things I’ve suggested have been noted by the team. I’ve contacted support many times and get feedback soon after. The team behind Cleo is always looking to see what they can do better and how they can help more, while also making Cleo’s overall atmosphere relaxed and as stress-free as finances can be. I especially enjoy Cleo’s different modes, such as Hype and Roast. The Facebook group is friendly and any questions you post there will always be answered. The app’s layout is easy to understand and has very few glitches, and when something does happen, it’s fixed soon after. I would 100% recommend Cleo to anyone who needs help managing their finances.
I’m still going to try...
I was recommended Cleo by a friend who loves how user friendly it is and how it can roast her, and I thought it would be great for my chronic overspending problem. I downloaded it and immediately starting having problems. First it took awhile to connect my bank account and now here’s two of the same one. Second, when adding my income (which I had to do manually, as I couldn’t choose one of the suggested ones) it was in pounds, not dollars, and it would NEVER save. Third, making my own budget (as the one Cleo suggested was just not gonna work for me) was difficult because it always said I didn’t have enough money to cover my spending. I went in vacation this month and spent a lot of money, but I wasn’t hoping on starting the budget this month. I guess I’ll try again next month and see if I have any luck. Also, when I was trying to identify bills, it was next to impossible as I have multiple iTunes bills and I couldn’t specify which ones update when or choose prices.
Suggestions: Make it easier to view which bank accounts are linked. Fix currency. Have a reset button for the entire app. Make a button when creating a budget on when it should start (like it will start when the next month comes around). Focus more on working on upkeep and not just making it yell at me. Let me manually input prices when it comes to bills.
Right now I’m not very happy with Cleo, but I really want it to work. I will try again next time I get paid so we will see.
One of the worst experiences I have ever had with an app.
The app started off great and extremely useful for what I was looking for in a budgeting app. I signed up for Cleo+ and even gave them my private information for their new rollout feature to collect interest in their own savings account. I loved this app for 1-2 months and the categories and spending is great.
However - I will never recommend this app to anyone purely that their customer support is non existent. I have sent over 12+ email over a *simple* issue linking the Cleo cover that they offer and absolutely no response. I then have sent in 4+ account cancelation/deletion requests over two weeks now and not received one response back. On top of that, my account has not been deleted and is still active despite my numerous deletion attempts. They also refuse to disconnect my bank and banking information. Before you ask, yes I did email support for this and big shock they have not once responded to me. If I could stop myself from ever giving my personal information to this company I would immediately. Especially considering they will not delete my account or private financial information from their app. It’s baffling to me how they have so many great reviews with a non existent customer service team. If I ignored emails at work the way they do I wouldn’t have a job anymore... and they shouldn’t either.
Steer clear and do not give them any of your information.
