The categories are a particularly useful function, and one that could become quite powerful with a little enhancement once some historical data is built up in the app.
Rather than swipe back each month to view a figure / % of spend, it would be useful to be able to see a visual indication of spend by category this month vs last month, and going backward historically.
I’m not sure exactly how this could work, but perhaps something like a historical line or bar graph in the category page.
This could be particularly powerful when categories are made ‘sticky’, - and even more so if they can be customised by the user.
An example might be that a custom category could be ‘stuck’ to a particular merchant or group of merchants (perhaps a chain store?) that I spend at frequently, and want to track either individually or as a custom group.
I could then easily see a visual historical graph of spend at that retailer or category at a glance.
Once historical analytics can be integrated (whether this is by merchant / category/ group), this then opens up options of related functions - such as setting a budget or customised spend alerts per category.
Hope I’m making sense here and others apart from me would find this useful
