Other Comments

It's so nice to be able to effortlessly save money without thinking about it. have already saved over $100 in less than a month

THis application puts away money for you in a separate savings account automatically. I love this app because it has allowed me to save money without even thinking about it. In addition, I can use almost every feature simply by texting the phone number it gives you. The app has some accessibility issues, but overall it is quite useable. Perhaps by posting it here, these issues will be fixed. NOte, the service is $2.99 per month, although the first 3 months are free.

Yes, I received a couple of responses a while ago but the app has still been really glitchy. Setting goals is pretty much impossible and that's one of the most useful features. Overdraft protection is definitely really nice and so are the text messages it sends out.

Oh, one more thing, how do I change the over draft protection. I want it higher than the default just in case.

I looked at digit. I'm not sure how I stumbled across it, but I thought, saving money effortlessly for $3 a month? Sign me up! But then... their fee is now $5 a month, and it's only a 30 day trial. I closed it and will go back to depositing my own savings every payday.

I love the app, I can use their website to do everything I can do on the app and more. Man it rocks. If you save 1000 dllars in the account 5 dollars really is nothing, and besides it adds up to about 3 as apple takes about 2 of that away.
