Hello,
Looking for help with the widget. 

I am using S7 with android 7.0. 
When I try to enter new transaction from the widget template it opens "calculator" but after pressing first any key the "calc" is gone and no transaction is added. 

I have already reinstalled the app but the problem persists. 

Many thanks in advance

Hi Paweł, 

Thanks for posting and sorry for the troubles! We have become aware of this bug, and it seems to be affecting Android 7 exclusively. We have this issue on our bug tracker for our developers to take a closer look during our next round of Android maintenance. Sorry again for the troubles!

Hi
I have the same problem with my Samsung S8 (with Android 7.0)
Is there any work around to use the widget until the bugfix?

Hi Reinaldo, 

Thanks for emailing us earlier, and sorry for the troubles with the widget crashing!

For anyone else experiencing this, we've had a developer take a look at the bug, and we've decided we're not going to pursue a fix because so few people still use the widget. We're sorry we don't have better news for you! We plan to remove the widget from the app on Android 7. 

Thanks

Ouch! I'm paying $50 a year for THIS? Perhaps few people are using the widget because it doesn't work.

I agree, what am I really paying for? Anyway, nobody forces me so I just cancelled subscription. Thanks GoodBudget for the app, it got me into home-budgeting. It has helped me getting started with budgeting but also I have discovered my personal preferences in that area. I will now find a more appropriate solution fitted for me
