New functionality in the latest Santander iOS app release. Actually not bad, if not remotely groundbreaking - spending insights and charts.
What I like: the monthly account summary, which includes the last four months and shows comparative figures on cash flow, summary by type (and the categorisation seems reasonably accurate).
What I don’t like: the gamification of it - 2 of the 5 insights I’ve had so far were quizzes. “Test your Deliveroo spending knowledge” and a general quiz. I can understand the format, but I’d rather just have the insights.
It’s still not the best app - slow to logon, too many steps required to make a payment (e.g. if you only have one account, it doesn’t default to populating it as the ‘from’ account), no instant balance update notifications, etc - but this is a nice addition.
