    Pros
    This software is a lifesaver and it helps you stay on track with your finances. It also helps for the times in between with needing extra funds.

    I like the overall idea of the software and it helps connect employees together for scheduling issues and to communicate. It’s also good to keep up with my schedule and finances all in the same place.

    I loves how fast they come through. I also love that the fees are so low.

    Cons
    There’s not anything that I particularly disliked. Maybe having to use my FaceID anytime I exited the app or when there was an interruption.

    It reads the schedule wrong sometimes because it reads the picture posted wrong depends on how fuzzy the picture is taken.

    Not the worst feature but having to remember to log out every time I use it so no one else can just open it up is a little bit of a hassle. All my other financial apps automatically log me out.

    Best App So Far

    Reviewed 11 days ago

    I loved the app it gave me peace of mind on payday knowing that I was able to borrow as much of my paycheck before hand saved my life .

    Pros

    I like that in able to borrow money before I get my pay check through my employer. the fact they give you other saving options outside of your company as well.

    Cons

    I dont like the fact that you can only use the service if its offered through your employer of I could use this with any job it would be great.

    Needs some improvement with functionality

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Overall, I think it can be a really helpful software. A few changes would need to happen for this to occur.

    Pros

    I like the overall idea of the software and it helps connect employees together for scheduling issues and to communicate. It’s also good to keep up with my schedule and finances all in the same place.

    Cons

    I tried to get a advance and i had trouble connecting my bank as well as many other people I talked too. Customer service was quick to respond, but the issue is still not resolved.

    Last resort banking app

    Reviewed a year ago

    When i needed help, Branch actually helped. If you were given key information before having to make a choice & terms weren't so high & constantly changing it wouldn't be such a bad banking app.

    Pros

    I was in a pinch & just needed a little financial help to get me through until payday & luckily the branch app came through. I was approved a day or so after applying & after they confirmed my employment & banking status.

    Cons

    The approved pay advance you'd be offered wasn't always the same & sometimes it was nothing at all even. While they kept up-to-date with each account they hold back key info people needing an advance would need to make their decision.
