How often do you check Emma?

I check throughout the day and prefer to manually refresh the app so that I can update my spending categories instantly. I’m really trying to keep on top our our budget but my wife thinks it’s too much.

How often do you check Emma?

I usually check several times everyday, especially when I receive the balance notification in the morning. Just like to know where I am and also love seeing my saving going up. But when I’m busy probably just once a day. I think if you just started using Emma it’ll be more exciting to check more!

This is a great question!

I open Emma about 500 times a day but I probably don’t count because I work here haha… In terms of opening it to check my budgets and spending, I find that once a day is enough for me :blush:

Once a day for me usually. I use the morning notifications as my prompt.

Twice daily in morning and in evening usually check Emma the spending categories I’m loving :slight_smile:

I, too, use the morning prompt for the first check, and then a couple of times throughout the day :blush:

2-3 times a day. I have a lot of things to keep an eye on currently so I like to keep an eye on my various balances to remind myself where I’m at.

2-3 times a week.

My accounts don’t sync up that quickly anyway. I have transactions from 5 days ago that are posted in online banking (Scotiabank in Canada). But they don’t show up even as pending in Emma. I understand it is what it is when you are using external provider for syncing. No complaints. They will sync eventually.

But how do you keep your “you opened Emma X days in a row” streak up without opening it every day?! :joy:

Hey Jase, I see you know more about me than I do. :slight_smile: I guess I do click on notifications sometimes. I normally turn them off for most of the apps. I didn’t do it with Emma’s yet. I am still checking if they are useful. I just installed Emma a month ago.

Is it a month ago, @jase ? :wink:

Ha ha I genuinely don’t know. I check Emma each day and it increases my “x days since you checked” metric and I enjoy it.

Gamification helps me in my daily life commit to things. I just wish it worked for everything :slight_smile:

There are so many games in contemporary life. Hard to choose. Emma actually is a great example of it. With so many personal finance apps on the market. People will choose the one that’s fun and easy. Emma guys definitely got that one right. :champagne:
