We are bringing it in-house. Just takes time and money! It’s a constant balancing act to get our priorities right, which is why it’s always important to get people’s genuine feedback.
It’s still just available on Android to 50% of users (the Android store let’s us roll it out slowly to fix anything that crops up as we go before the full 100% release).
We’d be very interested to hear detailed feedback and suggestions from any Android users who are using it or who thought about it and then didn’t for some reason.
Do get in touch if you’d be willing to come into the office in Kings Cross and do a user testing session.
Personally, I’d love to be able to hide my own savings balance so I can only look at it once a month. I think this would let me build it up without being tempted to take it out again too soon. And it would be a nice surprise when it had gone up a fair bit, rather than watching it going up bit by bit.
I’d also like to be able to set my intention for my savings at the beginning of the process. (Festival tickets! / Summer Holiday / Deposit). And put how much I want to save and by when. Just from a psychology point of view we know that stating your intention ‘out loud’ helps you to stick to it. Also, that would allow the algorithms to be more helpful, by being focused on helping the customer get to their specified goal - which are massively different from one user to the next.
But that’s just me - any ideas for what features would help you save? And what you think you’d actually be using Autosavings for?
