Horrible Do not download. Took all of my personal info and now freezes up. No 24 hour customer service line. Garbage app.

The app is great. It's fast and shows the most important stats. The investing part however is not so great in my experience. I know the market can go up and down, but it is not very encouraging when I'm sitting at a steady - 3‰ since the second day of investing.

Very convenient Great set up on phone. The auto deposit ux is impressive. Tax Impact Preview is helpful too.

It's up and it's down. Have not seen any true growth of this account since I started investing here. They will charge you a minimum 3 dollar fee per month if you do not invest at least 100 per month which is a waste of money as this strategy will not grow your savings quick enough to compensate for the fees. What is the advisory fee that I keep seeing on my account activity tab? From my understanding there is only a yearly fee of .035 percent as long as I am auto deposit 100 per month...

Great App, Great Service No problems at all, the app works great on Lollipop. I wanted to comment on investing performance as well. Some reviewers here seem to be under the mistaken impression that Betterment is trying to actively manage their money (complaining about recent returns). Betterment uses standard ETFs, and name brand ones at that. These ETFs have a great track record at accurately tracking their representative markets. If your portfolio has poor returns, it's because of the underlying indices (and markets).
