Leading the charge and getting better and better
I love CoGos mission and think they are continuing to push for transparency on helping us understand the people and planet impact of our spending. They also make it really easy to track the impact of individual transactions, help you focus on what matters most to you and to offset your carbon footprint in seconds. The team really listens to customer feedback and are working hard to collaborate with banks on getting the information they need to improve data and customer experience. I’m excited to see what new features come next!
Agree with other reviews
App is great and you can see this is still in its infancy. I gave it 4 stars because although the content is lacking and as a result not much use I do see how much potential this has!
To improve the content issue have you considered making it more community orientated? For example Users can have a function in the app that allows them to submit places for your approval that can then be added to the app for others to view?
Developer Response ,
Thanks very much for the feedback on this point. This is something we are testing at the moment. Thanks! CoGo
Changing the way I spend!!
This app from the moment I downloaded it has just amazed me!! And I can actually see a visualised summary of the footprints I’m leaving which make complete sense as I’ve been vegan for 2 months now and can physically see the change that has made on the planet!!
Regardless of diet preferences I think everyone should have to see a summary of their spending and the effect that it has, I believe it would truly change the way people spend.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
