Savings on Autopilot!

I have only positive feedback about Dobot. My bank wasn’t offered as a partner when I first wanted to sign up but I sent a message and they told me to check back later because they were adding hundreds more banks. Sure enough, when I checked back a few months later, my bank was an option! I had a little trouble connecting in the beginning (probably because my bank can be a pain with 3rd party financial apps) but I sent a message again and they had it up and running within a few days! Compare this to my web based banking program that still can’t manage to establish a connection with my bank after 2 years!
I love using Dobot to save for things because the little deposits really add up over time and before you know it, you’ve met your goal without even really thinking about it. And seeing the money accumulate in my account motivates me to contribute even a little more on my own. As long as it remains a free app, I will continue to use Dobot to put my savings on autopilot.

Good idea but REALLY ANNOYING TEXTS!!!

Dobot is a good idea and it works reasonably well. The problem is that the Dobot team send you text messages like you are a child that are completely unrelated to the money you have in your account. They will regularly send you text messages reminding you, for instance, to save money by doing your own home improvement instead of looking for a qualified contractor, or to look for a free concerts in your neighborhood instead of going out to a dinner and movie. You can either choose to not receive any texts whatsoever from the application or to receive all of their texts. There is no option to only receive functional texts like account balance updates. You either have to be treated like a child who doesn’t know how to spend your money, or lose half the functionality of the application. Stop trying to be cute and just do the core business your application is designed to do!

I have contacted Dobot support multiple times about these text messages and they are only resolution is to disable the texting feature is in the app which means I lose all the reminders of my balance growing.

This app would be great if Dobot stopped trying to be my mom and just helped me with my savings account.

I will be deleting Dobot and switching to the Acorns app. Hopefully someday they will figure this issue out so that I can use Dobot again because it really is a simple app to use and works reasonably well (without all of the pestering childish text messages).

Great Concept, Poor Execution

I’ve been using this app for a few months now and I thought everything was okay. I’ve had one or two savings transactions fail, no big deal, the next one works.

The customer service is odd. There is no way to directly contact someone to talk to. You either have to leave a message on their phone number or text them through the app. Sometimes they respond, sometimes they don’t. If they do respond, it takes a few hours at best.

Now, we managed to get enough money to get a new place and part of that money we saved through Dobot. I go to withdraw the money so we can put our payment down and the withdraw fails. No big deal, I’m sure that another try will work since this has happened with deposits before. Try again, fail. Now at this point it’s taken so long for it to fail we’ve lost out on the place. I try to withdraw again just because I’m annoyed and done with them having my money. FAIL. I express this to their support and they don’t seem to care.

I’m still dealing with this issue and if I don’t get my money back soon, will be taking them to court. Please do not download this app if you ever want your money someday for a goal. You just might not get it back.
