Spending section shows a list of categories.
What order are they supposed to be in? For me they seem to randomly change each month and I can’t decern a pattern. There’s a lot of wasted space showing unused categories, distracting from my actual spend.
Starling’s Spending section is better. It only displays used categories, and they’re ordered by spend amount, and show percentages of total spend. There’s an option to group by merchant instead, again sorted with percentages.
Now, starling and Monzo don’t have to be identical, but for an important basic feature like this, I hope Monzo can implement clearer overviews of my spending.
Monzo could even one-up starling and do the (admittedly less useful, but still cool and fun) grouping by location, and show on a map where you spend the most money each month.
Do things that the traditional banks don’t and possibly can’t do, to help us understand our money better.
