Ratings and Reviews
10/10 Would Reccommend
I had his app for a couple years before I realized ITS AWESOME. If you aren’t connecting all your other accounts (credit card, investing, VENMO!!!) then you are missing the beauty. All the normal banking functions are simple and reliable, but the real hidden gem is how good their spending tracking aspect it. I’ve tried probably a dozen different apps and so far BECU is the simplest and reliably connects to all my other accounts AND ITEMIZES MY VENMO TRANSACTIONS. Honestly amazing. It takes ~5 min a week to go through all my transactions and make sure they all have the correct categories and then boom I have graphs,charts, and errythang I might want to track my budget. Thanks becu also thanks for the sweet interest rates, love you!
Good but needs more features
Honestly this app has more and more become an indispensable way for me to smartly manage my money month by month, something that is exceptionally difficult as life happens. That being said, I have found so much good and bad over the years with using this app. The bad nowadays, since my last review over on Google’s Play Store, has been a few things that I’ll go in to depth on here:
First the good; The app exists, you can set budgets, you can see your net worth, you can transfer money, see past transactions, you can organize said transactions into special expense categories, and you can see the different balances across all accounts.
Next the bad: cannot create saving’s goals, cannot denote set amounts as certain types of transactions, and cannot easily link debit cards to Apple Pay.
As you can see this list of “bad” is negligible. In the grand scheme it is kind of useless.
To be honest the feature I want to give the most praise too right now if the budgeting and net worth tools. I’ll be doing a bit of work to ensure it’s as I believe but it’s definitely sounding like a good set of features if metrics can be a motivating factor in your life and a moderate sense of achievement. I know I know, my life is sad. Anyway, I intend to see how they influence me this next month and what happens. Wish me luck and I hope this review helps someone with BECU as their bank decide on if this mobile app is right for them.
Use it frequently but have some suggestions
This app came a long way from when it first came out. I use it frequently, and hardly use the online website anymore. I can transfer money from one account to another easily and the mobile deposit of checks is great. There is a couple of things I would really like to see change. Not just on the app but in general. The money manager is hard to use, and it’s odd. With bubbles of your budget floating around. It only lets you do a budget for 3 months, when I need one every two weeks. We should be able to change that. Also- there is this dreary background on the app of fog and trees. It’s been on there for a LONG time. Can you change it to something brighter or different? It’s getting tiring to look at. Even a black background would be better. Thanks!
