App Reviews

  • Buggy, limited functionality — not ready for release

    By TK2142
    Good concept but abysmal execution. I had a terrible experience trying to fund my account and getting Customer Support. Basic inbound transfers (from Citi at least) that other services easily execute don’t work here, and some prominent menu options (e.g., external transfer) don’t work — not even a pop up message, just nothing happens. The UI is not very intuitive and it’s hard to find certain common functions, like requesting help. Support documentation is poorly written, CS agents are never online and when they are they are not very knowledgeable. All in all, they should’ve done more user testing before releasing this to general availability.
  • SO SLOW !!!

    I LITERALLY haven’t had a bank that GIVES you DOUBLE CASH BACK, ON TOP OF the choice to wield a beautifully crafted powerful checking/savings account with BENEFITS*!!! Bank Transfers, Mobile Check Upload, 24/7 Customer Support, Chip Enabled Bank Card’s, AND INTEREST ‼️ “EMPOWER YOURSELF” ‼️
  • Love the interest rates

    By Mirandaeatsfooood
    Great idea, love the interest rates! I just am unsure how I feel about the orange brand color. Hopefully I don’t need to have an orange debit card forever. :)

  • Nothing but frustration

    By $TMONEY$21
    I got this app to help kind of keep track of money and what not, blah blah blah I linked my bank to the app and the numbers have been frozen ever sense I got it, it never updates or syncs. So I try to go and delete my bank for the app and it doesn’t delete. I’ve been trying to delete my bank for over a couple days and it always says cannot connect to server. I finally just went in a tried to delete my account period and it won’t delete my account even. When I go and try to contact there support they never answer. Soo just in the case that empower sees my review..... you better get back to me and figure this crap out. It’s sketchy when you link personal info like bank accounts to an app and the app won’t let me delete it.
