I thought this was my Quicken replacement, til I saw the strange categories.
Any app that uses hard coded text as an identifier, is not well written. The actual numeric or guid ID field should be the ID. Not text.
Thats a junior level developer mistake. Experts have already learned from this mistake on the backend AND clients that always want options. Also means the QA team consists of developers, not normal end users. End users see lack of options. Developers want you to stay in your box and not break their app.
Not being able to delete, is not the problem. Its the fact that we cannot rename, create or disable base categories because you thought these were suitable for all robots around the world.
Most humans want to use the custom categories of their previous software or simple those that they, not you, understand.
This is the place where Quicken and Mint win and why you're losing clients.
So, use your own app and see the 72% reduction in recurring funds on your Dashboard. All because of a basic custom category inability that even the worst financial, budgeting apps have.
