So we’re over halfway through The Big List - yay!
I was having a think about what comes next. Now I’m sure that Monzo will delight us whatever they do, but I was wondering what the list might look like if they took a few months just to add some polish to existing features. A bit of a
spring summer clean and spruce up around the place, if you like. And because, for me, most of the big stuff is done (or about to be done - looking at you, savings pots and IBANs !)
My list is below (I think / hope some of these might be in the works already!):
- Better payee management - something like an address book per person which would enable you to beautify incoming / outgoing payments yourself, assign a photo / logo to each account with better reference management (I’d quite like to have myself as a contact then have the logo of whatever other bank I’m for savings etc when I transfer money between accounts, as well as harmonising the different ways that banks present my name (names are hard - who knew names were hard?)
- Better bank transfers - being able to tap on Bank Transfer in the Payments tab and being able to select someone you’ve paid before - that’s always catching me out!
- More granular API management. At the moment if you want to revoke API access from Monzo’s end you need to request it manually through chat in the app - and revocation means that all apps/clients need to be reauthorised - including the Monzo app . I’d love the ability to be able to manage these from within the app.
- A redesigned settings page. It’s a bit jack o’all trades at the moment - this makes me sad. And it possibly needs some love to split out user settings from account settings - especially now folk can have two accounts…
- A new search!
So, just for fun, what would everyone’s list look like? Remember - improvements to existing stuff only!
