I’ve used Revolut quite a bit. Mostly it was good until they randomly froze my account and required copies of several bank statements to unblock it (I’d been fully verified for over a year and hadn’t used the account for a month when they blocked it).

Overall, the app is nice, and their quality is very impressive given their rapid iteration - I’ve noticed almost no bugs despite many feature releases in a short period of time. The app does includes a bit too much cross advertising of their other products for my liking though.

Unfortunately their customer support is beyond terrible, and they do seem to have a penchant for blocking accounts.

I’ve just spotted that it’s now possible to add a note or photo to a transaction. There’s the little “Attach+” option at the bottom when you open a transaction.
Thank you! I’ve been missing this. So glad it’s possible now.

Categorisation needs some attention - it appears to have been languishing (and falling behind competition). The attention to detail that initially attracted me to Starling seems to have fallen behind :

  1. Remember user-overrides to categorisation of merchant. After only 6 months, I know I am getting less and less motivated to go through, review and re-categorise the many transactions that require re-catergorisation.
  2. Set limits on categories - which can then result in notifications if they are exceeded (and can be displayed in red on spending page)
  3. Intelligently prompt re-categorisation - e.g. on holiday or on business trip (which you can detect via location)
  4. Provide month-on-month trends for categories (including showing when over limit)
  5. Ability to exclude individual transactions from Spending summary (e.g. one-off large payments or transfers that would otherwise skew the report)
  6. Ability separate/toggle discretionary spending from non-discretionary spending on the Spending page - e.g. exclude Direct Debits & Standing Orders & Individual payments which correspond to bills & subscriptions - to make it easier to track & manage discretionary spending

how often to new updates get released?


#126

Hi @Chetan86, there is no regular update pattern.

Updates happen regularly though, probably once per month or so.


#127

on android you get one release around two weeks after the previous desperated bugfixing spree that followed the previous


#128

I just noticed cc @sarah.guha that you can’t add notes to transfers out of Goals. I often put money aside in Goals then take it out as I spend it. It’s nice to be able to keep track of why I took money out of a Goal but the Notes on Transactions feature doesn’t let me do this.
Any chance of adding the Notes feature to transfers into and out of Goals, please?


#129

Hi @jaclong nice suggestion to expand the Notes features to other transaction types. I’ll pass this along to the engineer to built the notes/attachment feature.


#130

We’ve made these updates today, so you’ll see Notes on Goal payments hopefully in our next releases.


#131

Wow that was quick!

@Matthewward1

No tabs! :nauseated_face:


#134

I did use spaces as I couldn’t find tab but when I posted it removed them .sigh


#135

Ahh, the tab vs space debate!

If lineformat = “space” then
:face_vomiting:
Else if lineformat = null then
Print “You crazy?!?”
Else
:sunglasses:
Endif

Edit: I can confirm line formatting does not work


#136

You should be able to indent your code nicely if you use the preformatted text editor button.

if ($preformatted) {
    echo "Nice indentation!";
} else {
    echo "Ugh!";
}

Scratch that, it didn’t work :zipper_mouth_face:

Note: I’m trying this on my phone…

That’s better! :sunglasses:


#137

A post was merged into an existing topic: WARNING: This bank has NO 24/7 manned card services telephone line


#138

Someone got out of bed on the wrong side today i see… :roll_eyes:


#139

Card has never failed for me.

When was the last time it failed for you?


#140

He’s busy ranting on about 4 other posts, seems he’s had a bit of trouble today. Anne seems to be replying on one, so hopefully she will cool the ranting.


#141

Yeah I just read the other one - nothing to do with the card failing though lol.
