Simple and easy

Really simply laid out and easy to read. A lot more user friendly than most banking apps.

Slight issue with categorisation - I have to manually change each transaction of the same company (namely Apple ITunes), rather than changing one and that being automatically changed for all ITunes purchases. A bit frustrating as it skews my totals.

Perhaps I’m asking a bit much from an app but manually inputting data from non-online accounts/ISAs would also be nice. Certainly not essential though

Another disappointing finance app

Just installed this and was initially impressed with the speed of updating balances. Sadly American Express is not supported. Also my total balance is not what I expect. The figure is far too high, presumably including the available credit on my credit cards. I would prefer to see my net worth across my accounts, not what I can spend.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback, sorry about the trouble with some of your accounts! American Express will be coming to the app soon so you won't have to wait long to add your account. As for your total balance, can you send through which banks you hold your credit cards with to help@thisisbud.com? We can work on getting that fixed. - Reiss

Really useful

It’s really helpful to have an app that can show all my investments and bank accounts in one place. Also, love the feature where you can get rent to count towards your credit rating and that it helps you find cheaper insurance, gas/electric & broadband providers. Saved a load of money!
