We’re excited to announce the next major update to “HelloWallet for iPhone”, v2. Recognizing that many of your day-to-day financial decisions are made on the go, we are committed to providing you with a mobile experience that has all the power and functionality of our web application.
With this new version of the iPhone app, we have made the first time user experience even better. For example, if you’ve been given a promo code from your employer to access HelloWallet as an employee benefit, you’ll be able to set up your HelloWallet account entirely from the iPhone app. Additionally, you can now link your bank and credit card accounts directly from the iPhone app and watch as HelloWallet automatically begins tracking transactions.
If you’re on-the-go and realize that you need to set up additional budget categories, you can now do that right from the iPhone app as well. This is a great tool for those times when you realize there’s a specific spending habit that you wish you were tracking, but haven’t been.
Additionally, you can now manually add your spending transactions from the iPhone app. Since we’re only able to provide you data about your transactions as quickly as your bank is able to get the data to us, it’s a great way for you to get ahead by tracking your transactions while they’re still pending with your bank. With the iPhone app, you can add a transaction the moment it happens, and we’ll match it with the transaction data from your bank once it clears.
Let us know what you think about these new features and the iPhone application as a whole in the comments section below. And, as always, be sure to share any ideas you have that would improve your HelloWallet experience.
