Ok, some top line thoughts from myself having used about half of them.
Yolt - was using this for a couple of months and really didn’t have any issues with it. It’s smart, intuitive and offers depth. I got frustrated with synching across my accounts though, so got tempted to try Emma (below).
Emma - I’ve been using this for the last month and really like it. I prefer the UI to Yolt, no issues with synching so far and appreciate the lightening fast support that I’ve had so far. Functionally, it’s a bit behind Yolt at the moment but, once the next app update comes out (hopefully a week or so?) to add custom categories and manual accounts, I think I’ll find it more intuitive to use.
Having said that, I’ve got it in my head that it was more of a pain to integrate my current account (Barclays - but in the process of going #fullmonzo!) but I may be wrong. I think that Yolt just needed me to login with Mobilesentry vs needing to put in Memorable Words and Online Banking codes with Emma.
Glad I persevered though because, as I say get the feeling though that this may be a long term solution for me.
Plum - I really wanted to try it, as I’ve heard good things. I just don’t like the fact that it’s controlled by Facebook Messenger. Partly because I don’t use Messenger but mainly because I don’t like the fact that presumably Facebook are collecting data on all my interactions. I’m happy to share data with suitable and relevant sources, but I just don’t feel comfortable with sharing more info with FB - especially around specific financial earnings when I’m not happy with the way they use data in the first place.
MoneyHub - I don’t get a whole lot of insight from this in comparison to Yolt/Emma. Integrations are limited and I feel that any kind of insights generated are based around trying to get me to switch providers
I haven’t used the others listed (but may well try), so can’t comment.
The only other app I’ve used is YNAB, which I’ve heard is highly recommended. They don’t integrate with UK institutions though which means I need to manually upload transactions. I know I should give it a go, but coupled with how I’m enjoying Emma at the moment, I’m being stubborn - I resent having to work harder to get transactions into the platform when paying the same (and not insignificant cost) to US subscribers.
