Ever since I got a Starling Bank account I’ve found the Pie chart thing to be largely useless.
It dominates a huge portion of the screen and is there by default every time I open the app. Not only is it useless, it’s completely pointless in telling me no information if there are no transactions on a particular day.
To me, this has been an annoyance and Starling never went with my suggestion of a toggle that the user could use to turn it off and get straight to the transaction list.
What I had considered, however, is that this pointless screen might actually be causing confusion to some users.
For a couple of months we’ve been using Starling as one of our joint accounts. It was only yesterday my wife said she just wanted to see a transaction list. This screen was an obstacle and she’d not seen the tiny chevron to press to reveal the information she’d expected to see by default in the app.
