Note: the most current version of the app is 4.0.13.
- Submitted for release on August 4, 2020 @ 9:45am MDT

Before contacting us with a bug report, please make sure you have the latest version of the app installed on your device. You can check for the version number in two places: 1) If you're not logged in it will be on the login screen near the bottom. 2) If you're logged in, click on More at the bottom right and then the version number will be listed at the bottom of the page.

If you're having trouble with the new version of the app, here are some tips for troubleshooting:

1. Setting up a secondary form of authentication on the app
- Depending on the capabilities of your device, you can set up a biometric authentication or PIN entry by clicking on More at the bottom right side of the screen and then click on Lock App. When set up, each time the app loads you'll be asked for whichever form of added security you enabled.

2. Why do I have an account called 'No Account'?
- This label shows up in your account overviews list if you have transactions that are not associated with an account. You can remove the No Account label by clicking on it and then removing any transactions that you see or by assigning those transactions to an account. If there is a large number of transactions and you don't want to delete them one-by-one, you can delete them all at once through the website. Log into your account at, then click on Settings at the top right side of the page. Next, scroll down and click on Delete All Transactions. Select 'No Account' from the list and then continue.

Other issues we're aware of
- We're looking into why the app won't enter into split screen mode
- The ability to edit the transaction portion of a reminder is still being completed.

Two things I've seen when entering a transaction
1) In the amount field, I have to manually delete "0.00" before entering an amount
2) The Description field no longer does type-ahead to let me select descriptions from previous transactions. I really miss this time saver.

ios app version 4.0.7 issue:
The running overall balance for an account is not being handled correctly for future dated transactions. For current transactions, the current amount is added/subtracted from the overall shown below the line so the overall above the current transaction ties out. Once you hit the future transactions, it's adding the first transaction to the most recent past transaction to arrive at the overall balance below the first future transaction.

I'm not sure if that was intended behavior or if it is a bug but it is very hard to follow what the correct overall balance should be on any given future date.

Great work on the updates/UI!

This may be related to the documented issue "Editing a category name doesn't erase it from the input box".

When I enter a new transaction with a previously used payor, I select the suggestion which may have had a previously assigned category I wish to override. Once I select the suggestion, there is no apparent way to remove the category (making it blank), it only allows changing it to another value.
