  • Terrible app

    By Allons 7
    It worked well for the first 24 hours and then wouldn’t update my linked accounts. Received responses from Pocket Guard but they were unable to do anything to fix the problems.
  • Doesn’t work with some banks/financial sites

    By Smith S. Smith
    HSBC personal banking is broken, and so is PayPal if you use 2FA (which you absolutely should).
  • Awesome app simply awesome

    By InGodsHands#365
  • convoluted

    By jadr80
    an overly complex app full of useless and confusing features. is it really so hard to make a simple budgeting app? i don’t want to exceed $100 a week on dining out. so make a “dining out” category and subtract from it every time i make a dining out purchase. can’t seem to find an app that operates on this very simple concept. perhaps it’s too simple. app developers can’t seem to stop themselves from gilding the lily. sometimes less is more.
  • Not all Transactions are displayed

    By Nvp777
    Not all transactions are pulled in and transactions disappear giving false spending information.
  • Does not perform

    By V.I.King
    PocketGuard does not perform as advertised, being unable to link to certain banks. After many emails and over a week with tech support, has become clear that they have no intention of correcting the issue. There are many similar apps available - spend your time/money on one that works.
  • Like a buddy to keep track of spending— buddy can’t do math

    By marioincandenza
    The idea is really good— capture regular spending (bills) and regular income (paycheck) and keep a running tally indicating progress toward saving. But the math is wrong! FAIL.
  • Great App.

    By Nulltrix Inc.
    This app helped me to understand and have a better vision on my spending and saving plans
  • Slow to update pending transactions

    By Reptileskin124
    This is an app with great in terms of features, but is slow to pick up pending transactions. There is limited use for me when I still have to check the bank’s app for an updated pending balance. I can’t quite justify a monthly subscription when other free apps can provide an accurate daily balance across accounts
  • Good and easy to use, forecasting would be nice addition

    By Whitney Evans
    So far it has been a very helpful app, even with just the free version. The one thing I wish they included was the option to set different goals for future months in advance.
