A bumper crop of tweaks this week. We’ve tidied up Pots so your transaction information is clearer. We’ve redesigned the ‘add money’ screen so it’s easier to see your options. And we’ve wrestled with a few bugs that were making the app just a little bit less elegant.
Bill splitters of the world unite – we’ve made it easier to tell that you can split bills with people even if they don’t have Monzo accounts! Although, you know, if they wanted to get Monzo accounts that would still be cool.
We fixed a silly bug in your Pulse graph that meant you could tap on a day in the future and see a ‘Spent today’ box. Like we said: silly.
Thanks to everyone who’s been testing bill splitting in Monzo Labs. This week’s release contains some fixes for when you split the bill with people who aren’t using Monzo.
_This week we’ve focused on smoothing out the log-in process, so it’s easier to access your app. _
And we’re full of gratitude for the million people using Monzo to manage their money. No YOU’RE crying at your desk.
We’ve jazzed up the card activation flow, so it’s a nicer experience if you’re using your card for the first time. And, as always, we’ve battled a load of bugs.
You may have noticed we skipped over version 2.14.0. But rest assured, this week’s release is definitely 0.2.0 better than 2.13.0!
Your Monzo app should feel a little snappier. We’ve fine-tuned the performance of your feed and pulse graph, as well as sped up switching between tabs.
We’ve also made it easier to order replacement cards, and check the status of any current card orders. The rest of your settings have moved into the profile section.
We skipped this release
We’ve heard that some people’s apps were a bit slow, so the fixes in this update should help make scrolling around your feed buttery smooth.
No big news, we’ve just fixed some bugs for joint accounts. But we do have some small news: the Brazilian pygmy gecko is so small that it can walk on water.
Ever heard the phrase ‘unknown unknowns’? That’s the things you don’t even realise you don’t know, rather than just the things you know you don’t know… make sense?
If you’re new to Monzo, you might have a few unknown unknowns. So we’ve tweaked our Help section to suggest things that new people might find more useful, rather than leaving them to fend entirely for themselves.
We’ve also made it so you don’t need to talk to us if you want to update your phone number. You can edit it yourself from your Profile.
Should make things easier for people, you know?
Splitting bills is a pain, right? If only there were some way to make it better. Take a look at our Labs area where you can try out new features.
This week: we’ve made some updates to the Joint Account sign-up process, and fixed some issues that were affecting how Summary works with Joint Accounts. There’s also some behind-the-scenes work to make paying your bills a bit less stressful. Coming soon!
The bald eagle actually has quite a silly cry. So film-makers dub them with something more majestic-sounding (usually the red-tailed hawk).
There’s not a lot to update you on at the moment, just some general sprucing up. But we didn’t want to leave you empty-handed, so here’s a nature fact:
Some types of snail can sleep for up to three years. Remarkable.
We’ve been giving a little feature you know and love some TLC behind the scenes, to tidy it up and make it easier to find. We’ll let you know in-app once it’s ready for the main stage.
This update contains a quick fix for a shiny new something that we’re previewing later this week.
Come to or watch our event on Thursday night to hear more!
Remember Targets? They’re now Budgets. (Because we realised that really they’re budgets to stay under, not targets to hit…) As well as setting individual budgets for particular categories like shopping and going out, you can now set a overall spending budget for the month too.
