App Reviews

  • Terrible

    1
    By Western Alumni
    After reading positive reviews, I decided to give this app a try. Although I wasn’t comfortable sharing my bank account login information, I followed the prompts. Once that was done, I realized how clunky the app is to navigate. It wasn’t intuitive for me. Then, after deciding to discard it, I couldn’t find a way to close the account after removing my bank interface. It would not let me move past the “add bank account” step to make sure my login info was removed.
  • Love it but could add some improved comparison features

    App is super easy to track spending, but some improved features could include more month to month comparisons and year-to-date spending on each category (maybe this is in the plus version?). Free version has met my needs though. Awesome app!
  • Just ok

    It's ok, but I don't use it much for a specific reason. Maybe I'm the only one, but it takes 5 minutes to load every time I open the app.
  • Bit of glitch--one savings account I have is counted as negative...how do I change?

  • Newest update helps A LOT

    By Eggs McGee Three
    My number one problem with pocket guard was that I’d have to manually check and calculate for upcoming bills — well, no more! Now it factors that into my daily budget, making it immensely more trustworthy and accurate. Thank you, dev team! This is a huge feature for me.
  • Excellent app for budgeting - needs weekly budget option

    By jrcrimmings
    Overall this app is the best I have found to budget and monitor spending in one account. Unlike others it does a really great job tagging things to the appropriate category, and even when it doesn’t it’s easy to fix. I love the spending limits feature but **wish there was a weekly option as well!** When you get paid bi-weekly monthly budgets are very difficult to plan because paychecks never hit on the same dates. The ability to monitor weekly spending and stay in my budgeting limits would be a game changer and I would definitely pay for a pro account if that was an option.
  • Be Aware

    Like the concept but be aware of the hidden objectives for three party options. Example, Billshark. You will constantly get a pop up to help lower your bills but they don’t notify you of the 40%. They also pull all information from PocketGuard so be careful of linking your accounts.
  • Great App, Great Customer Service

    There are a lot of money management apps out there, and I have tried many of them. I find the user interface on PocketGuard the friendliest, and the customer service is fantastic. Very open to new suggestions and implementing them. I think this app has great potential moving forward. Highly recommend!
  • Aggregation error message

    By anishia e
    New to the app try linking my online bank and keep saying aggregation error message and it make me mad cause I like the app concept
  • Extremely buggy

    1
    By Bcollet
    Not sure how this is so highly rated. Definitely well designed from an aesthetic perspective but every day I log in and get wildly different "in my pocket" figures. One day it will be -$700 and the next is up to $500 with no change in my spending or pay. It often suddenly forgets my bills, adds new ones I didn't request and forgets that I have upcoming income.
