Hi there. New user of the Goodbudget app, and really enjoy the community support as well as developer ideas. I have enjoyed building a budget I can use and can help me achieve my goals. I was surprised to see the current version does not support the display of the iPhone X nor iPad. Is support for these displays on your roadmap?  I sure hope so.

Hi impaler, 

Glad to hear you're liking the app so far! Right now, we're not working on an update for iPhone X. You can stay updated with what we're working by checking out our Roadmap

Thanks again

Impaler, I tend to keep abreast of tech as I love it (sad eh!). I will certainly be going in the direction of the iPhone X so wonder what the implications re display are? It has never been good on iPad and I just use the browser but sure wish GB devs would bite the bullet :-)

I have had the X for about a month, and absolutely love the super retina display.  For apps that are written to take advantage of the display, the results are great, allowing more on screen and to see more at once.  For apps not updated for the X, it looks boxy, cut off and strange.

While support for the iPhone X display is not on the roadmap, within the developer community, the best developers with the best reputations tend to update for the latest displays early.  I'm crossing my fingers that this update will occur some day soon.  Until then, I'll live with it - and it's fine.

Good news for us X owners. Rumor is Apple will soon begin to require app developers to provide apps that utilize the Super Retina and full use of the X display. Eventually the developers will have to update the app to keep it functional.

Thanks to the Goodbudget team, version 2.0 came out today and adds iPhone X support. Also loving the Force Touch addition. Awesome!
