Solid Budgeting and Financial App

My company provides this Financial App free and I've taken advantage of it, mainly for the personalized Financial Advisor assigned to me and free tax software

The app itself is pretty basic and usies CHECKR to sync all your bank and brokerage accounts for a wholitic view of your financial situation

I most like the app due to its excellent Financial Advisory, I got lucky and was assigned Marcus and he has been a game changer for me and is always available via the app for questions. He even helped me with my taxes and saved me $100 dollars just by his recommendations. Super smart and professional.

The tax software was just okay, there wasn't a great view to see how making adjustments impacted the overral amount you owed and it was hard to see if I met the standard deduction towards the end of the process. Also the app was a bit glitchy, but Ill take this free software anyday over Turbo Tax.

Beautiful design, questionable functionality

I only use Orgin because it’s free through my job, otherwise I would switch to something without so many issues and bugs. There’s a bug on mobile that means you can’t adjust budget categories most of the time. It’s a tap/swipe issue, as another reviewer pointed out, meaning when you tap and slide to show additional categories nothing happens. This makes it impossible to have a clear picture of my spending categories. No issues on desktop. In the budget section the charts are not accurate. For example $50 is visually represented the same as $800 in a category with a budget of $300. So it looks like I’m significantly over budget when in fact I’m under. I can’t link my Vanguard account, even though I’m using the correct credentials.

User Friendly but Always Logged Out

I have really enjoyed how easy this app has made categorizing and budgeting my finances, but the app itself has a lot of bugs which makes it difficult to use. I’m constantly struggling to login with it failing most of the time. If that problem was resolved would be 5/5 for me!
