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.

    I have NEVER heard of either. :/

    I have been thinking about switching from GoBank to this as I have already had a few issues with them. What features of Simple did you like over GoBank?

  • jessemawhinney

    still no list of tags you used before? I've used the iphone and android and I think that is one of the biggest feature missing still (and all funds deposited the next day instead of $200 only. My new job has no direct deposit so it kinda ruins my SImple experience)

    I love my Simple account. Sadly, I'm not seeing the app update in the Play store yet. Hopefully I'll get it soon...

    My wife and I both have accounts but we aren't really using it because of the lack of Join Accounts :(

    • CoolCustomer

      I agree its particularly annoying because for me it is two features away from being perfect: joint accounts and checks. They don't even need to give me checks but other institutions should at least be able to charge to my account via e-check :/

      • David Thoren

        I haven't had a problem with having other institutions ACH from my Simple account.. the routing and account numbers are visible.

        • Jaymoon

          From the FAQ: "Simple doesn’t provide you a book of paper checks, though. And, just so you're aware, third-party-created paper checks and eChecks with your Simple account and routing numbers will not work. This is because our accounts do not support having checks drawn off them."

      • MoeizW

        But I thought the send money feature allowed Simple to send physical checks for you?

        • CoolCustomer

          They can but it is Simple sending a check and debiting your account not a check being written from your account. If this sounds insane to you then welcome to club of people who hate financial bureaucracy, we have lots of members.

  • MoeizW

    Folks...we need cash deposits at ATMs, amirite?

    • Ricardo Kummel

      What?? We do have this in Brazil for a loooong time.. How hard it to them to implement this on other countries? Shouldn't be hard at all. They already have the knowhow..

      • MoeizW

        LOL I'm talking about Simple specifically, silly goose.

        • Ricardo Kummel

          Still, you were talking about ATM's.. You should really look up at our tech here..

          • MoeizW

            Fine. Brazil has atms that take cash deposits. Amazing.

  • TechGuy22

  • Thatguyfromvienna

    That's not a valid goal, the one scoring is offside!

    So you don't only need a Visa card, but a Simple Visa card? Not sure if I want another credit card..
