  • Slick but needs more features.

    By AlejandroDeGreat
    I really like this app and how its designed. However it would be cool if you could create your own categories for the pie charts. I love the hashtag feature and the visuals.
  • HSBC not working

    By Dghrael
    Although i love this app, im wondering when will it provide a fix for connecting to HSBC personal internet banking. Hsbc requires birthday date in addition to username and password. Any info on when this would be added to pocket guard?
  • Fabulous!!

    By Zoe Speros
    I have searched around for the best app to help me track my spending habits, and this is the best by far. It does not require any manual input or scanning of receipts and is super simple to use and understand. This is probably the best and most straightforward app you can get to manage your money, and that includes the other apps you have to pay for!
  • Not flexible

    By penless in EauClaire
    The only thing good about this app was how easy it was to enter reoccurring bills. Everything thing else was to controlled by the app. No way to enter funds, or savings without a dedicated account. Deleted in an hour.
  • Game changer for me!

    By ..kayla..
    From what I can tell, this is the only app out there that is designed around the exact way I like to budget. It takes the month’s income and subtracts all your bills, subscriptions, recurring payments, things like that. So the money you have left over is what’s available to spend on food, gas, incidentals, fun stuff, etc, and the app keeps track of this number for you so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of it on your own. It’s exactly what I needed to help me stop unintentionally overspending! Very glad to have found this app. Thanks!
  • So far so good

    By ShWn777
    I would like to be able to go back and add multiple checks. My checks are different every week because I work in a restaurant. Other then that, every this is great and easy to use.
  • Good but is missing some key elements

    By Jcbrcu
    I like the concept of PocketGuard, but there are a few elements missing to really make it good- being able to split transactions into different categories (not all my grocery store trips are just for groceries), constant bank connecting issues, and you need to upgrade to categorize certain things (gas, coffee shops, etc). I also noticed I only got push notifications AFTER opening the app- that kinda defeats the purpose of saying “hey you’re close to your budget on ____ don’t overspend”. I do like that I could connect my main bank and see each account within in it including all of my different shares assigned to that account (checking, savings, trip savings, savings for Christmas, car loan, etc) and decide which to see every log in. The app is very esthetically pleasing and easy to navigate. I did google a few things to figure it how to do it.
  • Great but needs a few more features

    By Ebony738
    This is a great app and I love it. But it does still need some work. The most important things I would like to see is updating purchases faster. It take a while for the app to update my purchases. And also the savings feature needs to have a bit more.
  • Good app

    By sairajgallo
    I use it all the time to track my budget and what has been spent
  • Terrible

    By Western Alumni
    After reading positive reviews, I decided to give this app a try. Although I wasn’t comfortable sharing my bank account login information, I followed the prompts. Once that was done, I realized how clunky the app is to navigate. It wasn’t intuitive for me. Then, after deciding to discard it, I couldn’t find a way to close the account after removing my bank interface. It would not let me move past the “add bank account” step to make sure my login info was removed.
