I just want to get this out of the way up front: I love Simple. It's among one of the best new services I've used, and after careful consideration, it beat GoBank as my financial institution of choice. If you're a Simple customer also, great news: the app just got a lot better. Thanks to the bump up to v1.2.0.8, nearly all of the features of the website are now available in the app, including the following additions:

  • Goals!
  • Block or unblock your Simple Visa® Card from the app.
  • View scheduled transfers for external accounts
  • Edit scheduled payments
  • New navigation drawer layout
  • Fix camera preview bugs affecting some devices
  • Numerous bug fixes and other improvements

The most notable among the new features is, of course, Goals. This means you should now be able to move money in and out of Goals, as well as create new ones, directly from your mobile device. This is absolutely fantastic, and a feature that I personally have been waiting on for months.

With these new additions you should be able to completely manage your account directly from your mobile phone – now we just need a dedicated interface for tablets.
