I'm right brained & that other app that starts with M just doesn't work for me. This is easy to use, fun & uncomplicated. At first I thought the texting would be annoying but it's short, quick & concise (& maybe it's just my wacky self but I kind of like Penny); just be sure to set the speed to high. I also appreciate the daily updates & quick, personal service from the developers.

I've tried a money tracking apps but this one is my favorite. Devs did a great job making Penny friendly, informative, and fun to interact with. 4 stars be cause they need more categories. Don't give the app a 1 star review because it asks for your banking information if you have ever tried an app that tracks your finances in real time you'll realize that this is how it works. It's the only way they can get that information without having you enter your transactions manually.

Sounds really great and love everything it says it can do but I'm with Regina. I don't like the idea of giving my bank account username and password out..just sounds sketchy to me. Anyone experience problems after giving out your personal info?

X70%
by X####:

Emailed them. 1/2 hr later said that they were working on my problem. 2 hrs later it's fixed. You can't beat that, even if it does have a white background. Thank you so much.

P70%
by P####:

I love the concept, but there should be more categories. A grocery category and an entertainment. I want my eating out to not be put together with groceries, as it's not the same thing at all. It works just fine, but I don't have an accurate picture of my spending at all with just the 5 categories provided.

M70%
by M####:

The categories are too broad and do not really help me see really what I spend my money on, i. e. alcohol, entertainment. Would like to be able to customize the categories, and be able to split categories. Needs common categories like healthcare, or education which dont fit in the categaries provided. See no usefulness for me in this app.

B70%
by B####:

It would be better to ask any question along with the suggestions it has. Just like Google Assistant. Another thing is when penny provides some facts in orange font.. It would be great to see more details by making them clickable..

Q70%
by Q####:

I've had this app for a few months I like it because it does keep track of my spending and very timely. Only a few things I would like to see is that you could actually talk/ message on the app instead of having to use the premade questions all the time. Also more categories, like savings. Only other problem is when you buy something other than fuel at a gas station like a pop, cigarettes or candy its categorized under auto maintenance.

G70%
by G####:

Helps me track my spending & notifies me of account changes very soon after they occur. I would love to see more categories added, like Entertainment and Pets to further discover where I'm spending money.

S70%
by S####:

I never review apps but I was so impressed by Penny that I felt compelled to. The user interface is sleek and fantastic. There is almost no friction for signing up and using the app. Finally, the conversation is surprisingly not very robotic and comes across as natural. Highly recommend if you want to keep an eye on your finances.

Doesn't support my bank. First Bank of Whiteville, NC. It said it supported it but not for the security settings

T70%
by T####:

Great way to gain control of your spending habits. This app opened my eyes to several trends I didn't even realize were happening.

I70%
by I####:

I really want to use the app. However it's been over 24 hrs and my account is still not linked. Email support numerous times and getting the same response. Going to give it a while longer then uninstalling if issue continues

U70%
by U####:

I tried to link my bank with them. When I typed in the answer to my security question it didn't work. I would really like to use this app; however, I can't for the time being...

V70%
by V####:

Penny helps me track my finances, by category. So I know right where I'm spending the most money. It also stays on top of new transactions. Just in case of a fraudulent charge, that comes in handy. She's also very interactive!!

D70%
by D####:

I never rate apps but I had to for Penny! It's super helpful and clear info that you can't get on other apps like Mint. Penny is fun to talk to and always on point with my finances. I hope that this app company can add other capabilities like planning financial savings goals! I would even love a fitness tracker app from them!

W70%
by W####:

Total BUMMER! Would've been a little happier if my bank was supported. Please look into adding it. CB&S Bank

Z70%
by Z####:

This app is easy to use, very comfortable, like talking to your own personal financial advisor. Getting set up was easy and the functionality of the app is relative to having a talking checkbook that gives you reports and trending on your financial health and spending.

by J####:

Quick and easy way to have an idea of your expenses. A few more buckets would be helpful bit overall this is a great easy way to keep up with expenses. And love the interaction in the app.

Y70%
by Y####:

Great for managing multiple accounts. Being a college student, with a debit, credit and a college debit card, it's easy to forget what you've spent on what. Instead of constantly going to diff bank apps, I just use Penny and it has a layout of everything I need to know. Would love extra categories but otherwise, I love it.

F70%

I dont narmally rate apps but this one deserves all the applause. Penny is superhelpful and keeps me organized.

C70%

She's helped me keep my finances in order, and keep track of what I'm spending where. As with any other app, there are areas for improvement, but overall I love the app and use it daily. <3

H70%
by H####:

Seems like an awesome idea but I don't know if I trust putting my info in.. I don't want it to be stolen

K70%
by K####:

I love the simplicity. Mint was way too much for me to manage. I like Penny, and I also use Level Money. The two together would be a fantastic duo. For now I like to use both to monitor my money.

O70%
by O####:

The amount on my checking is off. It's accurate with what I'm spending and when I spend but the amount of my checking balance is super off. I don't think it changes.

X70%
by X####:

It's a little leap-of-faithy, to give the app your account info, but the comprehensiveness of knowing what you spend is worth it

P70%
by P####:

Since I started using it, I've reduced my debt tremendously and people have no idea how I did it. Penny. You're like the second coming of Jesus to me.
