What Makes Simple Great?

If you’ve looked at financial apps at all, you most likely will notice that all of them function on the same basic principle — spending categories.

The Best Alternative to Simple.

Hearing the despair in my wife’s voice, I spent the last two days taking a second look at other banking apps. (I have to admit, I’m a bit of an app Geek and have probably tried them all already). Each and every one of these apps are based on the same annoying principle, just with slightly different interfaces … categories. Have you ever scrolled through a finance app obsessively correcting its categories? Then you can imagine the sweet release of having just one number to think about.

But What About Bank Accounts?

That still left us one problem. My wife and I loved the ability to instantly send money to each other and to share some of these reoccurring expenses. I looked at accounts like Chime and HoneyDue. Most sharing apps are too simple or too complex.
