A bit glitchy but ......

...... overall the Pocketsmith system is quite awesome now I’m getting the hang of it on the desktop. However the App has me constantly re confirming the same transactions over and over again. Not difficult to do but unnecessary. The App needs sharpening up to work in conjunction better. I look forward to improvements as they happen. I won’t be removing it off my phone! 👍🏼

App lite

PocketSmith is a great way to store historical transactions, and packages them with a number of pretty reports (my favourite is the “Trends” graphic).

The iOS app is more of a window into their system: the heavy work is done with the website app. One app feature is the emphasis with your budget. This tracks both your actual month against budget, and has a stab at predicting future balances. The budget can be tricky to set up initially, so it may be best to start from scratch or use the web-based “Auto-budget tool”.

PocketSmith as a whole is indispensable, so it is a pity that as of now the iOS app isn’t representative.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review, it sounds like you’re a pro with all of your reports! The Sidekick app was always intended to be a companion to the wed-based/desktop app, as the complex functionality can’t be fully replicated in a mobile setting. However we’re always looking at improvements to the mobile experience, so watch this space.

Can be great, but it’s not

The attraction of this app was the auto bank feeds, this has failed miserably after I moved my personal budget from another platform. Continually the bank feeds fail, then when they are running again transactions get imported incorrectly (income as an expense) the support team are responsive but can’t solve the problem as their hands are always tied as the need support from the 3rd party called yodel to fix anything. I have been waiting for 2 months, I’m still hanging on but my patience is wearing thin. A simple fix would allow the user to change the transaction from negative to positive but that isn’t possible. Essentially none of the other features work if your transactions have the wrong sign. My advice is to try again later once they sort out their issues.
