    Can not add additional categories. "Help" text said get premium version to do this. When asked about premium version, developer said premium version is not available.
  • Excellent!

    By Ajajshdhx
    Awesome app, have been searching for a finance app like this for awhile now.
  • Terrible

    By Gim01
    Every few days it will stop updating my accounts and the budget won’t stay updated. I’ve tried everything even talked to customer service and they always give me the same thing over and over. Now it’s not letting me log back in or create another account. I’m done. Not cool.
  • Not worth the time

    By Poohgirl65
    At first the app was useful. It showed me where I was spending & where the money was at. Also at first the app was updating frequently. Now, it’s not updating but once every 2 or 3 weeks. Just not worth the convenience since it’s not accurate.
  • Love it

    By manirenesimonemariehuyana
    Love this app and how it helps me keep track of my finances in a very easy and automatic way.
  • It doesn’t update often

    By Deucey22
    I have to keep signing in to the bank account every time I log in. My credit cards is not updating the correct amount. It’s hard to budget when the App does not have the proper amounts updating.
  • It’s good when it works, but it’s unpredictable

    By JR-ARL
    I had a good run with Empower and decided to take out a monthly subscription. I saved 40% more than usual, which was great. Seeing exactly where the money in real time goes helps me to know when to cut back and how to spend. It is precisely because of that that I need the app to be dependable. Recently, my spending report dropped by hundreds of dollars, for no reason and it’s being underreported no matter what I do. This is on BOA/AMEX standard accounts. Additionally, I can’t add my online savings account at Citizens - which doesn’t give me a good idea of my debt to cash ratio.
  • Couldn’t install; support couldn’t help; not ready for prime time

    By NJComplyGuy
    I had read great things about this app on various reviews, but I don’t believe it’s ready for prime time. After downloading the app, I tried to sign up for an account, but it would not recognize my email as a valid email. I tried another email, which worked, but then got errors on linking my bank account. I contacted support, and although they tried to help, they have no solutions for either issue. Ultimately I spent tons of time trying to even get an account setup with the app, with no success. I would be very skeptical of giving my financial credentials and Linking accounts to this app, given the fact that they couldn’t deal with a simple email and account linking issue.
  • Will not link with my bank accounts

    By mom in a house of boys
    I am deleting this app due to it’s inability to link with my bank account, although my bank is listed. I have made multiple attempts to link them, without any success. Also lack of technical support is an issue, as I contacted the support team who were less than helpful. If they could fix these issues I would consider trying the app again.
  • Won’t link my accounts

    By Vitaminred
    I would have loved to use this app but it’s basically useless since it won’t link my accounts. I sign in and it asks me my security questions and keeps repeating the same question and will never allow the account to link.
