Announcing the all-new Walnut App
We’re excited to announce the all-new Walnut app – it’s simpler than ever to keep track of your spends and now comes with a built-in Spam and Fraud SMS Protector.
So far, Walnut has been about managing and saving money. With Walnut 5.0 – we want to help you save money and time – by automatically blocking spam and fraud SMSes.
A brand new home screen
When we set out to design the new Walnut experience, we had a primary question on our mind.
“How can we help our users understand how they’re doing right now?”
Managing money can be tiring, and several users felt guilty about overspending when they looked at their historical data upfront. Hence we decided that instead of worrying about money one has already spent, it’s wiser to focus on the “now”.
The new design helps in doing exactly this – stay on top of your current month spends and your budget. Budgeting is an essential part of managing your money. Hence we’ve integrated your budget more deeply with your spends.
– The new spends view helps you view your spends, budget, categories and top merchants in one go
– The new categories view has a percentage & spend distribution of spends so you understand better how you’re spending
– A simpler design to track accounts on the home-screen and our algorithm ensures you see the most relevant account upfront
Say goodbye to spam with CleanSMS
We already organise your finances neatly into transactions and bill reminders. After talking to a lot of our users, we realised that the primary SMS experience was broken. Businesses send a lot of promotional messages, unknown numbers spam you with offers & fraud messages try to dupe you with false information.
Hence we decided to build CleanSMS – a quick way to automatically block spam SMS & keep your SMS inbox clean.
We use machine learning to automatically sort messages as Important and Spam based on context. Important messages stay at the top of your SMS inbox and are denoted by a star. Over time, the app learns from your behaviour.
Once you mark an SMS as spam, the app will classify similar messages as spam henceforth. There’s a bunch of other options – automatically delete OTPs, notification preferences etc to help you customize the app as per your preferences.
Trends – explore all your historical spends
While some users are overwhelmed by their historical spends, others love doing a deep-dive into data-heavy stuff, exploring their spend information in more granular detail across time periods, slicing and dicing their data in different ways.
For them, we’re excited to introduce a new trends view that helps you explore all your historical data in more detail than ever before. See how you’re doing right now, over 6 months & all-time! Not just this, for each time-period, you can easily filter spends by account, category and tags!
We hope you’ll love the new app. Leave us a comment here or on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also share your feedback from within the app itself.
