Best-in-class Credit Card management app
Cred instantly makes you fall in love with it's ease-of-use*, interface, and interaction design.
Paying your credit card bill before the due date let's you unlock Cred points and I find it a highly rewarding Feedback Loop. The redemption options are amazing for someone living in the metro.
Kudos to the illustration and the product team for making it a delightful experience.
*Ease-of-use: I would like to point out that the latest update totally devalues Cred's strong interface language and accessibility ratio. I am not sure what the thought process behind the new UI was but it seems unwarranted.
New Design Trend on Dribbble: Neumorphism, and Cred was like,
are you our Lord and Saviour?!
The neumorphic interface has certain details which are executed really well but overall I found it to be immensely jarring. The navigation labels' contrast is just way too low and while the new UI gives the product, a more tactile feel, it comes at the cost of perceived reduced padding between the elements, heaviness in certain sections that don't warrant the attention. It took me a good 3-5 seconds to reorient myself to the navigation, and to the UI change which is not a good thing at all as it slowed down my journey. I hope the next update rolls the experiment back or improves on these areas.
Doesn’t let you delete your account!
For an app handling so much of your sensitive data, they fail to provide any trust in you considering how much they’ll try to distract you and prevent you from deleting account from their databases. I didn’t even make a payment, and wanted to delete my account and had to go through a frustrating 30 minutes of a unnecessarily roundabout chatbot, and a customer support executive who replies once in 5 minutes to get to know that the issue has been “escalated” and will be looked at in the next 5-7 working days. What happens if that time period passes and nothing has progressed? That remains to be seen.
It is unacceptable that there’s no direct and transparent account deletion feature and no actual customer support on this application. They stick a FAQ and hope that you never actually try to escalate issues with them.
Please don’t waste your time with this app as their business model will be to sell your financial data to advertisers. If not that, they will use your money which you’ve given them for their private investments in the 2 day period before your credit card account actually receives the money.

Too many limitations
I like the concept of CRED. In fact I was waiting for something like this to come up and ease our lives that are made complex with the card companies. However the app adds more stress then it relives it. For eg smart statements only support Gmail and Hotmail but for those who get statement on personalized accounts there is no option to auto forward statement to CRED. And adding office 365 accounts does not work at all. Also for cards that are cancelled or upgraded there is no easy way to remove those cards. And if there is I have not been able to figure out as yet. And in case if you have two types of card with same account E.g Master and Amex, it treats them as two different cards although they fall under same credit limit and same statement. Also When you have two cards with Amex , e.g charge card and a credit card, it makes incorrect payments to wrong type of card when you pay through cred. You need to call Amex and transfer credit from one to another. I hope these small things are fixed and tested to be the go to App for your credit card management.
