This would be more interesting to me personally if: 1) It transferred to an automated investment account at Wealthfront or Betterment. Would it make sense for you to explore licensing your tech to them? I don't want to have to trust YOU though I'm sure you're a stand up guy. Also noticed you didn't mention what bank you used in the FAQ - which raised a red flag for me. 2) It showed me each year how much extra $ I made by doing more frequent investments. 3) It connected to Mint or Personal Capital, because they already have connections established to all my accounts. The fewer people I have to trust with that info the better. I don't really "get" the stated purpose, which is to "[set] money aside in a smart automated way you might have otherwise spent." This seems to resonate with some people, but I tend not to spend based on my checking account balance but based on a budget. If I'm missing something, let me know :)

Been using for a few months now and quite liking it.

I've been using Digit for a few months now and have been having a great experience. It's super simple to set up and has been pretty helpful. As they keep adding features, I can see this being my go-to personal banker. Easy to do things quick like check balance and transfer money.

I'm terrible at saving and Digit just put away $1k without me really noticing, amazing. One of the few services I would be sad about it if it went away.

@lukesbeard me too! I started using it a couple months ago and just got a text that I'd saved several hundred bucks. Couldn't be more light weight. I'm not sure how it works, but I'm definitely cool with it.

@lovethecool cool! that's something we keep hearing. would you want to know more, at least an upfront, re: how exactly it determines the savings amounts? or are you just all good with the way it is right now?
Michelle McCormack@lovethecool · Fashion Photographer
@ebloch I'm all good the way it is. the less I have to think about saving the better :) I'm sure at some point I'll google it to find out - out of curiosity
