Disappointed by the waiting I have this app installed since one year and I have been waiting to get credit cards added and today when I saw amex I was happy that at least one of my cards is on there but I have been disappointed again.. Sorry no pocket book until credit cards are added and can be synced automatically. . We all these days use credit cards so what's the difference in this app or another if I still have to manually add the transactions..so until Amex , everyday money credit card and coles card are added. .. no to this app

Highly useful I've been using pocketbook for a while now and have been loving it! Ever since signing up, I've been able to accurately track and manage my finances - highly recommended for everyone!

Brilliant Concept I downloaded Pocketbook around a year ago but unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to fully explore its functionality as my primary bank isn't yet supported. I recently opened a secondary account with one of the supported banks though and have finally been able to have a play. I'm really impressed with the features so far and I feel Pocketbook would be an extremely useful tool for managing my finances. As I have a feeling it may still be awhile before my primary bank is supported by Pocketbook (being a smaller bank), I'm actually considering moving all my accounts to my new bank so I can make greater use of PocketBook.

Really handy Great for monitoring spend and budget . It would be better if there were more advanced reporting filters, but it's great for a top-level spending analysis of your spending and income. The main annoyance is that it only generates notification emails when you open the app, which means you can end up getting a phone notification and email notification at the same time and this is redundant. Also, phone (push) notifications are sometimes quite long, and when you click on them you are taken to the app homescreen and there's no way to see what the original message was.
