Device(s) App Was Tested On:
You wil be able to review balances. list transactions, and enter new transactions. However, there are several poorly labeled icons and buttons. Most are not critical to using the app. Navigation is cumbersome with many things being read two or more times as you swipe around. You cannot read the date associated with each transaction, and you cannot read any of the alerts. The main screen is confusing but you can get to things. To enter a transaction, you have to double tap each number on a number pad to enter the amount even if you have a keyboard connected. There is no decimal point. Enter zeros as you might on an ATM keypad. There is a cryptically labeled button at the bottom left for deleting digits. If you are willing to tollerate the accessibility hassles of the Windows application, then you may find this app useful.
I think the problems with this app are part accessibility and part plain old bad design. Another thing I noticed was that on my accounts that reconcile to the bank online, my balances did not reflect the transactions that I had entered that had not cleared yet, even though they could be seen on the account detail.
