Ratings and Reviews
Love the app. Would love one extra feature..
It would be great to have a feature where we can highlight phrases and our “notes” that have been highlighted are out in a special place within the app. Some things have really resonated with me and I want to be able to read those words specifically as reminders instead of having to read an entire post again. If that would be possible, I would be so excited. So far, I’ve been highlighting within the app, and posting to “notes” on my phone, but even trying to highlight or “select” on my phone is difficult through the app because the selected words do not show as highlighted in grey or whatever like they would be when selecting text on a regular webpage. Thanks everyone!

Thank you for your 5 star review and new feature suggestion! :)
Great app, some ads are antithetical to MMM philosophies
Thanks for the thoughtful response. Knowing the background about this app certainly changes how I feel about it, I'm editing my review. I honestly think it's a very well developed app and got a lot of value from it the past couple months. It might be worth it for other readers to see your comments somewhere in the app. Would love to see it maintained for a long time.
I had this app at 5 stars but with the addition of the ads it really brings the credibility of the content down. I will just quote an article and its accompanying ad:
"car spending is the first and foremost thing standing between the struggling masses and Mustachian Freedom and Riches. That means YOU!"
Ad directly underneath:
Only 2 Days left, Tap for offers - Toyota
There is a paid version with no ads but again it feels contradictory to spend $10/year on an app after I biked through the rain by MMM's suggestion to save $1.50 in gas, and finished reading "A millionaire is made Ten Bucks at a time"
I really preferred the previous model where MMM provides links to things he supports (like the low flow shower head, which I bought)

Thank you so much for your support! Your response literally brought tears to our eyes and made our day :)
Thank you for sharing your response to our recent changes. We understand your concerns over the addition of ads as we certainly struggled with the decision to introduce them into the app. However, we tried for over a year to support the app on affiliate income and contributions and simply were losing money. As husband and wife developers our hope is to at least break even. MMM himself is also losing money on the app as the use of his affiliate links via the app are significantly less than what readers typically use on his website.
We built the app as a passion project and hope to continue supporting it for years to come. We want to keep it free so that it can be used by those still in the early stages of FI, and we want the free version to have all the essential features needed to learn about the movement and quickly make progress toward financial independence. For those who are further along the journey we offer a supporter option that provides a few extra perks in the app but nothing that is 100% required.
We agree with your concern over the juxtaposition of the Toyota ad next to articles about spending less on cars. Since we are utilizing personalized advertising everyone will see different ads similar to what you would see on most other websites or apps you would use. We have already blocked a large number of advertising categories that we felt were inappropriate. While we would like to block just "new" cars we believe hybrids and used cars fit within the MMM philosophy. We will continue considering this category and whether to block ads from cars as a whole.
We really appreciate that you took the time to share your concerns.
Excellent tools help you learn the MMM way
The MMM site is a treasure trove of sound advice on habits to navigate the pitfalls of a consumerist society that would have us buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have. However, it can be hard to take it all in which is why this app, with the recent addition of two tools to guide you through each step (paired with related articles) is so darn excellent.
I’ve always recommended MMM to anyone questioning the status quo but the tools in this app make this the better/more practical option. While it is US centric the general principles are applicable anywhere so share this app instead of another meme and be remembered as the friend that introduced Mr Money Moustache
