Groups on iPhone App

Now I have my budget up and running on the web I thought I would give the phone app a go. To be honest I am not so sure - it works well enough but it is a real pain having to scroll through all the envelopes. The phone app does not appear to keep the envelopes in the same order as the web so the groupings are worthless really. What it desperately required is the ability to group the envelopes and to keep them collapsed in those groups. Also there are no running balance in the account view.

All a bit negative, and I am sorry, but to use the phone app for anything but quick stuff does will not work for me personally. Of course I could also be missing something mega (it has been known....often :-) )

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the honest feedback! It's always helpful to know what folks think and how we can improve. 

I can definitely see how it would be helpful to group your Envelopes on the mobile app. I've added your vote to our request features tracker. To clarify, your Envelopes should by default arrange to match the order that's on the website. However, once your create custom order on your phone, the order will never be able to default to the website order again. I hope that makes sense. 

I've also added your vote of adding an Account running balance on the iPhone app to our tracker, as well. Currently, you can see the Account running balance on the Android app. 

Feel free to let us know if you have other thoughts! Thanks, again.

Thanks Karisa, I have never altered the order on my phone - not that I can remember anyway! If I have, presumably I can manually change the order to match the web?

Must say that I am really enjoying this software though. As familiarity grows so does my enthusiasm.

HI Karisa, I now have the phone view of my envelopes in the same order as the web. I did that manually but that is no big deal. Thanks for the "heads ip".

Hi there - Glad you were able to manually edit the order of your Envelopes on your phone. Going forward, if you make any changes on the web, just be sure to edit your Envelopes on your phone so they'll continue to match the web. Thanks, Colin!
