My auntie raves about it, I'm unsure whether she uses the pro version though.
I've just started on a trial and finding it ok. It doesnt seem to be as aggressive as taking money as Chip is (i.e. it is averaging about £12 per withdrawal to Chips' £90!).

I like the idea of the funds and have set that up as a trial but the app is very much orientated towards changing energy suppliers etc. which I dont really like - there is no way to turn it off if you are tied in for example.

Ah I don’t need to switch energy suppliers as live at home hmmm may just use the basic version then. Have you used the stocks and shares bit?

Yes I have.

I've set up a standard account (already have ISA so couldnt do one of them) and splitting money between two funds. Seems to be working really well.

I’ve just set up an isa last week so was looking at the stocks and shares but it’s all confusing
Well I doesn’t look like I’ll be using plum. It keeps disconnecting my account. Ah well
