    Nice interface, best budget app I've found. Needs to have the attachment option for transactions on webpage and a backup feature so you can download a copy of the data and attachments.

    Add option to allow me to change the date of the transactions. Most of the time amount is deducted at a later date than actual transaction. This messes up the whole need for using this app.

    Works pretty well sorting various payments into categories but I don't want to get notifications from it. I have turned off all notifications in the settings and yet still it will pop up with notifications. Why give me the option of turning them off if you're going to force them on me anyway?

    Please fix the bug with category selection. When you exit the app and later return, the category has changed! Samsung S5 if this helps
