  • Pros: 

    An amazing product that replaces the bad mint app I gave up on because it has too many ads.

    Cons: 

    I don't have any yet!

    This is a really cool product. It's great because I spend less time worrying and stressing about my finances; everything is automated. Gotta move money to my savings? Nope, Astra's done it already. Need to pay an account once a month? Oh, look, Astra is taking care of it. I also love the goals and need them to ensure I can make it to Greece next summer. Astra for the astronomical savings.

    A cool savings app that doesn’t make you feel bad about yourself.

    None so far.

    I like the security of my data as well.

Hi Product Hunt 👋! I’m excited to share the launch of our new Astra app for iOS. We built this app because so many of us are living paycheck to paycheck and trying to do more with our money while still paying the bills. Creating a budget and managing every dollar can be tedious and overwhelming. Who wants to deal with complicated spreadsheets or check their bank accounts every day? Astra is designed to make it super easy to automate your savings and see where your money is going at a glance. Our new iOS app helps you automatically put funds aside for your savings goals—anything from starting a rainy day fund to paying off student loan debt to going on vacation. All you have to do is connect your bank accounts, input your goals, and create the rules to fund them. Then sit back and let Astra get to work! Our mission? Make it easier than ever to manage your money, so you can achieve your financial goals and don’t have to deal with the stress of living one paycheck at a time. We’ll also have a caffeine giveaway running for the next week for the Product Hunt community, brought to you through a Kitty - Otis collaboration. For the first 500 users who sign up, go through onboarding*, and share the app on social media (here counts!), you’ll get a special badge and a $5 gift card to Philz, Blue Bottle, or Starbucks. 😺+🐙=☕ Please take our app for a test flight and let us know what you think. You can share feedback here, through Intercom in-app, or email me at gil@astra.finance or @gil_akos on Twitter. *More info on the giveaway can be found here: http://bit.ly/2AOJaQi *Currently, bank transfer functionality is limited to Astra users with US-based bank accounts. If that isn’t you, you can subscribe here to follow our progress as we continue to develop our product and work on launching beyond the US. We look forward to serving you!

@astra @gil_akos does it work in 🇨🇦?

@astra @mijustin Not yet, but we are working on it for our friends up north 👆! Unfortunately, our banking systems and regulations are vastly different from one country to the next. Taking Astra international will take some time, but we’re excited to expand to countries outside of the US, especially 🇨🇦. In the meantime, we’ll be working hard to make the app the best it can be for the US market before i18n.

Pros: One centralized place to create, manage and see all my recurring transfers! More visibility = more peace of mind, for me. Way better experience for me than going through the different banks' interfaces Cons: Product-wise none so far, although on onboarding it'd be great to be able to sync my accounts first, before having to create a transfer.

@suneel_chakravorty Thanks for the feedback, especially regarding the onboarding sequence! We will work on making that more flexible so you have more options when you first start using the app.

Pretty slick! I had a similar idea last fall but it looks like you have executed on it much better than we did. Can't wait for the Android version :)

@chanfest22 Thanks!! We are big fans of CoinTracker, so the feedback means a lot. We focused on iOS first because the majority of our early adopters were using Apple devices and because we wanted to get it right on one platform first. An Android version is a high priority for us, and we’re already working on it. 🤖
