New version is getting there
After a few painful months, it seems like most of the bugs in the new Pocketbook have been resolved. I still have some issues with categorisations not sticking, but it’s a relief to be able to sync purchases at any time of day again.
I’m getting used to it now, but I do still believe it was easier to categorise purchases in the old version, as well as doing month to month comparisons.
Initial review of the update below:
There’s so much gone in the new version. It’s so much more difficult to add a note or recategorise. I have incoming money listed amongst my spending and I have no way to get rid of it. The design is just awful, text is too light, no at a glance monthly comparisons, graphs are tiny and so hard to read. The best part of old Pocketbook was to see quickly where my spending is at - looking at my budget page it’s now unclear at a glance what’s over and under. I can’t easily compare between months anymore. I’m spending ages trying to decipher what’s going on. When I recategorise a transaction, I have to hard close the app for it to refresh, that also never used to happen
Developer Response ,
Hey Wonderwarts, thank you for your updated feedback, it great to hear we are making moves in the right direction!
If you would like to give direct feedback and explain more on what you'd like to see from Pocketbook categorisation, please join our Pocketbook Daredevils Facebook page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Still striving for a 5-star review from you!
Accurate sync with my banks
I have tried other expense trackers, rather rudimentary with the laborious manual inputting of thousands of transactions! Then when one crashed I was bereft however it led me to this! With top notch encryption it communicates with your bank, displays your transactions for up to 12 months and accurately categorises 90% of your spending, very smart! Anything uncategorised or that you’d like to change is very easy to amend.
Best of all there is a budget, weekly, fortnightly or monthly and you get a snapshot of whatever you want to concentrate on with a car showing how much you have to spend. The front screen gives you an instant ‘cash’ and ‘credit’ balance (it will show your overdraft as cash so I just cancelled my overdraft, another positive move for my new budget strategy)
For me it’s the fact I don’t have to spend hours and hours updating it, just a bit of changing categories here and there, it’s just ‘there’ and displays beautifully across all my IOS devices. You can’t delete entries but you can dissolve them in a money transfer category which is useful when someone gives you money to pay a bill etc etc
Excellent app. Auto-categorisation smarts?
Love the app.
Took me a while to properly apply the “Transferring Money” special category, such that it masked the correct transactions of mine for internal fund movements. Perhaps a more thorough Help page for this feature, with several worked examples, would help the typical user. (Given that automatic transfers are increasingly applied by customers in their online banking, as the banks improve their app/web usability; getting this correctly reflected in Pocketbook can be highly confusing or a show-stopper for the layman.)
The only item preventing a 5-star review for me, is having a more robust auto-recognition of transaction descriptions ... Many transaction strings have a repeatable beginning section, but then the merchant’s description adds a unique receipt number or similar that makes Pocketbook’s current Bill-detection or auto-categorisation falter.
Are there plans to beef up the smarts here? (‘Partial’ merchant description, even selectable by the user. And perhaps an enter-able $ range to assist?) I believe this is a high-value feature.
