  1. I have the free app. Aren’t the envelopes supposed to refresh with new funds every week? Or is this just intended to he a one-week trial? Beth

  2. Hi Elizabeth,

    Envelopes don’t automatically refresh with new funds currently although we are working on functionality that would allow you to set up a recurring income.

    You should use Add Money in the Android app or on the Web to refresh your envelopes. While you’re doing that, you can also set up a Remembered Refill (a set of rules telling EEBA what to do with each envelope on a refill) so that you can apply the same rules without having to set them up each time.

    And, no the free app is not a trial. It’s a Free Forever version. Paid versions have more features (more envelopes, ability to track Accounts), but the Free version is yours to use as long as you like.
