USER REVIEWS

Simple: the intuitive mobile banking application user review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Friday, August 22, 2014

Simple is a great mobile banking application which is very(as the name states) “Simple” the user interface isn't anything that you see in a lot of different applications out there where you have control of everything including your kitchen sink, but the main functionality is so washed out that it feels pointless to have downloaded the app to begin with.

At the same time of being so simple it is also just fancy enough to keep the user base alive due to a great balance of simplicity and functionality. If you have tried and tested the other million banking applications that are available but none of them seemed to fit the bit but you haven't brought yourself to try this one, Then I suggest that you give it a shot. I feel that you will not be unsatisfied with the choice of doing so.

Over all Simple is exactly as it says it is giving users a good balance of usability and simplicity making it great for nearly anyone(unless you like having control of your kitchen sink) =)

Pros

  • Simple and easy to use mobile banking application
  • Great balance between simplicity and functionality

Cons

  • Some wish that it had more options(but then it wouldn't be simple)

Review

Simple is a mobile banking app that will help you to keep organized and control your funds in a non-traditional way. Its saving and budget tools will enable you to spend smarter. Its Safe-to-Spend and Goals modules will help you to make better and more intelligent financial decisions. Safe-to-Spend subtracts pending transactions, upcoming bill payments and saving goals from your available balance, in order to tell you how much you can spend. Goals gives you two options: “Save over time” and “Save it now”.

Its save and budget tools will enable you to spend smarter

Simple also includes tools to automatically categorize and analyze your spending, for you to have a clear insight of where your money goes; with plenty of details like location, time, type of merchant, etc. In addition, you can jot down a phone number, rate the purchase or snap a picture of every transaction. One of the most appreciated features from Simple is its reliable customer service. The Help staff can answer your queries through -almost instant- phone calls, emails or tweets. However, some users have criticized the fact that this in an invite-only app, something that restricts access to many people. After requesting to sign up, users will have to wait until they are given an account.

How to use this utility

Once you have gone through the download and installation process and got an account, you will get a Simple VISA card free from fees. With it, you will be able to withdraw cash from ATMs and make purchases like you do with ordinary bank debit cards. Simple will notify you with every transaction and change made in your account. You will receive alerts even if you have funds available. You can also make transfers or pay bills, for instance.

Simple knows people are concerned about their data privacy. That is why this banking utility consciously requires strong passwords as well as an extra PIN for blocking access to unauthorized users. This turns to be especially useful when your mobile gets stolen or lost. Similarly, Simple insures your money with the FDIC limit ($250,000 at the moment) and never sells or shares your personal information.

  • Automatic synchronization of transactions with notifications
