My go-to app for checking my finances

Pros:

Easy to use, covers most of my accounts and more added all the time. A really ambitious project - much more ambitious than competitors.

Cons:

There's a lot of stuff still to do on transaction filtering and search, but it's in the pipeline!

Thanks for your valuable feedback! :) :)

@jack_frost3 Expect big things for search πŸ‘€

Great community and interaction from the team and love seeing the speed of development and responsiveness to feedback.

Pros:

Really clear UI/UX and a great way to keep on top of all my finances in a single view

Cons:

Expand to include more banks but this will come with time

MakerHiring
Hey Andy! Thanks for your review. What banks are you looking for? :)

I had been trying to get a better grasp of my financial health for a little while now. I tried alternatives but never felt they were quite right, when I downloaded Emma I right off the bat fell in love with the simplicity and power. Now I look forward to opening Emma and seeing whether I am on track or not!

Pros:

UI is super clean and friendly, the feed is great for a quick look at your financial overview.

Cons:

None

Excited to see our first Canadian users here! :D :D

Love Emma - been using it for a while. Great and interactive team who engage with their users and listen to feedback, work with their community and build cool shit!

Pros:

Great product, team and responsive to feedback/ requests

Cons:

None

Thanks for the review Wil, are you on our community forum already?

Emma is my go-to app for all things money management, I've been a user of the app for over a year and it's changed my view and management of my finances. I'm now at last ahead of plan for paying back credit/debt, purely because I have a more complete view of my financial situation. Of course there's a few features I'd like to see in Emma and will at some point add to their community, but it's nothing that is actually a 'deal-breaker'. When I have had an idea, bug or query in the past, the chaps and chapesses at Emma have always been great handling them, it's a super responsive and efficient team. Updates and features are pumped out regularly and if there's ever an issue (e.g. service), it gets communicated out by the delightfully GIF happy folks on Twitter. (Major things/features are communicated via email as standard). I find it quicker and easier to now log into Emma and (if necessary) refresh balances, rather than logging into my banks app direct! No hesitations recommending Emma to friends and family.

Pros:

Clean and easy interface Great product and customer support It just works and it does what they say it will do

Cons:

Some finance institutes missing, but largely the fault of older/less open FIs rather than Emma.

MakerHiring
Thanks for the comprehensive review. We can't wait to show you what cool things we're building!

Could not recommend more

Pros:

Emma is super good - easy to plug in, good notifications, amazing UI, a gem of an app.

Cons:

More connections to more banks!

MakerHiring
The connections to more banks are coming. Request yours here: (Most-Wanted πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§) integrations

The primary feature is all about budgeting and tracking expenses, and this is where the service really shines. Budgeting is super easy to set up: After downloading and connecting your account and syncing your transactions, they will get categorised into predefined categories. The nudges, the reports and visibility of all the transactions in almost all of your accounts (including savings and investments). They even have crypto currency tracking. Not exactly a con, but a requested feature is to have a shares/stocks portfolio. With the staff being very open and also responsive, I am sure this will be in their list of to-dos. A wonderful and convenient app and definitely much better than your traditional banking app.

Pros:

1. Budgeting and Tracking Expenses 2. Reminders and generally staying on top of your finances. 3. Customer service and the many features

Cons:

Missing managing shares/stocks portfolio.

Thanks @vivianlobo ! Keep the feedback coming on the community forum. We're all ears πŸ‘‚

I’m very excited to see European companies making international consumer products. Without any doubt, I can safely bet that Emma is going to become the world leader! I really can’t recommend it more. Keep up the amazing work!

Pros:

I’ve been using Emma since its first beta release. Since then, countless new features have been added. I was able to TRIPLE my savings!

Cons:

Only pros, sorry...

MakerHiring
Thanks! :)

Emma allows you to regain control of your financials, it's easy to spend money these days without thinking about it - Emma will remind you, shame you for excessive spendings and track it all so you know where it's all gone

Pros:

Brilliant for tracking your finances

Cons:

Emma doesn't provide anything outside of financial information at the moment, not necessarily a negative

MakerHiring
Thank you!
