Many banks immediately send a SMS notification to let you know when a transaction was completed. It would be very useful if Goodbudget could read the SMS template and automatically add the transaction!

Hi filipe - Thanks for the suggestion! I actually have not heard that technology. Do you know of any apps that can do this? We've had users in the past ask for Goodbudget to automatically sync transactions from their banks. Is that a feature that would be helpful for you? If so, I can add your vote to our request features tracker. Thanks again!

Thanks Karissa for the quick reply! HandWallet Expense Manager ok the play store is an app that has this feature =) this is probably much simpler to implement than connecting directly to the Bank..

Hi filipe - Thanks for sending that over! I can see how this feature would be helpful for folks who often forget or don't have time to manually add transactions. I've added your vote to our request features tracker for future consideration. Thanks again!

This is an essential function for those who want to keep their online budget updated without having to import databases from banks and for those who do not have the time available. This function would be a great differential. I've already canceled my YNAB subscription due to not having this function. I use today a Brazilian system Mobillis that has the function of launches via SMS, in an easy way.

But it does not organize planning like the Fill Envelope. If you implement this update for SMS import I immediately sign your system. Until then, I'm waiting for some news from you. Do it, please!
