Hi, i use both Monzo and Starling as my everyday banks. The one thing that is pushing me towards Starling is the Pots/Goals and the Payee screens/tabs.
I know that both banks currently have similar features but Starlings just looks a lot better to me, for one main reason. You can edit pretty much anything, and even add your own pictures!
I’ve added pictures for all my payees and can edit them easily and made everything make sense for me - Love it.
It’s a shame that Monzo (which in my eyes always seemed to be the fun brother out of the 2 banks) has a very simple system and looks so boring and often confusing.
If i have 2 payees that aren’t on Monzo then it uses the initials and a background colour seemingly at random. For example both My Joint accounts have been called ‘J’ and only allow a small ‘J’ tile to reflect this.
I mean which looks better?
It’s the same story with the Goals/Pots. Even if for whatever technical reason we cannot add our own pictures at the very least Monzo please add some more stock pictures. i can imagine a lot of people using pots for savings/bills/shopping/christmas etc. Maybe some more relevant stock images?
Anyway let me know what you all think, or if it really is just me that this bugs
