UI Overhaul

Revolut just lost me lately as it’s evangelist because of the latest UI/UX changes. From years I advice my friends to use Revolut by showing them how fast and easy is to send money. Recently when I’ve installed new app version on friends phone I couldn’t do it. At least one or two “clicks” were added to the process. And by trying to figure it out I’ve made mistake and generated payment link instead of sending money. I think that says a lot and I didn’t show my friend how easy it is. Revolut “thinks” it’s popular because of it’s functions but what I belive it’s at least 50% / 50% UI/UX which is getting destroyed by every latest update.

I just switched to N26 and the clean simple UI is so refreshing!

Yes, and they have dark mode and are a real bank. But unfortunately I miss some features: multi currency accounts, (disposable) virtual cards, etc.

A new competitor has launched but only in Germany so far…

What competitor are you referring to?

I am asking to see how much I spent on USD from my tv subscription (DirectTV)and I don’t know anymore… just a simple question that used to be so easy to get from this application…

Really bad…

I´m also interested in the german competitor. Could you please tell us who it is?

I really used to love the revolut app but since 7.x I just want another bank. I will sell all shares and leave revolut and the metal plan soon if they don´t give us back what we used to have with 6.x ;-( Sorry for that because until 7.x it was great and I recommended it a lot. Now my blood pressure rises every time I open the new app and I keep telling people not to switch to revolut until they change the app ;-( But I´m still insecure if bunq or N26 will better fullfill my needs

After the recent upgrade the only remaining Revolut’s advantage I can see is their exchange rate. I haven’t come across any other service that could beat it. Although with the 5 times free limit reduction in August even that becomes less attractive.

I started with N26 as my first fintech. Then found Revolut to be better, later Monese and now my favourite is bunq although I still use Monese for its joint account with my wife.

Is there a way to get rid of the weekly insights on the home screen? Or move it to the analytics page?

Nope, no way at all.

The icons (weekly insights) sometimes disappear and reappear when switching the screens (Home->Wealth->Home, etc.)…

version 7.6.2 out already (for android). no idea what they are updating, but they seems to be doing something.

I’m still on 6.9.x - no hurry to update. No hurry at all. :yum:

They fixed the front page with adding more transactions, so you were able to see at least 3!! Yesterday they turned it off again, so now you can see Weekly Insights instead and your last transaction, how great it is. they managed to show you zero relevant information on a 6" screen. Whats wrong with the managers at this company? We would like to see our spendings!!!

I can still see the last 3 transactions. I’m using version 7.8-beta440 on Android.

Just adding my opinion here. It might be a bit controversial but I actually like the UI overhaul. That doesn’t mean I don’t have feedback to make it better—I do—but to me Revolut actually improved in a way that I just made it my main go-to bank account.

Disclaimer: After the disastrous UI Overhaul of a well-known neobank competitor from the Netherlands, I might simply be easy to please. But yeah, there we go.

I think what Revolut’s UI basically needs is choice. Let me choose to hide the Junior feature, let me choose to hide the weekly insights or move them elsewhere, let me choose to put the ATM search on the front page instead of back there under my profile somehow. Those would greatly improve the app.

Regarding UI/UX, in addition to the above mentioned choice, I would like:

  • Dark Mode (adhering to system settings on iOS—not sure how Android works here but if this is not a system setting, the app should still offer Dark Mode on its own)
  • Transfers that actually show the method of transfer (SEPA, SWIFT, in future hopefully SCT Inst as well)
  • Incoming Transfers that show all possible information like incoming IBAN of sender, etc.

Thank you for your consideration.

It is constantly changing back and forth to me. There are 3 combinations:

  • 1 transaction+emptyness
  • 3 transactions
  • 1 transaction+Weekly insights.

The app is changing between these combinations every few days or so.

Yes. It is confusing a bit. Not sure if Revolut is yet to decide to finalise home page design. Understand that the home page real estate is really valuable. Revolut should give options to the users to hide/delete the feature that are not relevant to them.

If you update to latest version of Revolut, you will lose dark mode via Android 10’s force dark mode feature.

Fully agree. Revolut, please let us chose what we want to see and what not. I don´t need and I don´t want and I never will use Junior Accounts. I want to see the old graph for all time spending and the monthly graph as it used to be in 6.x And I want back the coloured rings on budgets, showing me the percentage and most of all I want to see as many transactions as possible. Even if the loading takes time, I would prefer all transaktions to on. Every time I want to see it, I now need the extra click for all transactions… So the only difference to 6.x is, that I always have one more click. Why do you prefer an userunfriendly interface over a good one? I would gladly have 6.x back. In my case I will wait till my metal plan expires and if the app stays like it is now, I will leave Revolut for good and all… Hope other fintechs won´t mess up a nearly perfect user experience just to show, they can do it. Perhaps we need 30 clicks with the next update to see the last two transactions? I can´t imagine, what you are heading for with 7.x… ;-(

What about the analytics in the currency you are spending? I don’t care to see how are the GBP figures for transactions that happened in USD…

I am okay with changes but this is compromise of the services that we are paying for. We are the customers here and Revolut has to listen US and not some new managers hired last year and they to sign off their project.

And customers like me and a lot of others here that started back in 2015-2016 with the idea that we don’t need the traditional banks to steal our monies while traveling and we have promote Revolut everywhere in the world…we cannot accept this. No we cannot!

I am not going to leave Revolut but I will wait for these “managers” to leave Revolut because they don’t belong with us… they can go to starling… monese what ever… doesn’t matter the names all of them are the same banks … online ones with mentality of traditional banks.
