Valentine's Day is coming up and we decided to show our love to some of the pesky bugs in the app by, well, getting rid of them. 💖
Our iOS widget hasn't been up to scratch recently so the team has given it some extra TLC to get it up and running again! 🤗
In other exciting news, make sure you check out the most recent features in the Finder app too!
- 💸 Add your manual assets and liabilities to calculate your Net Wealth

22 January 2021
We're kicking off the year with one of the hottest and most highly-requested features in the Finder app. Hold on to your seat because it's going to be a good one! 🤩
Introducing Net Wealth!
You can now get a true picture of your overall wealth by manually adding your assets and liabilities (on top of all your other connected accounts, of course).
Can you include how much your car is worth? Absolutely! Got an impressive collection of Pokemon cards? Add it in! Update the app, add all your accounts and you'll get a shiny new graph that shows your net wealth over time. And the best bit? It's coming to iOS widgets in the next update. 😉
Home loan refinancers, we've got one for you too! Our in-app insights just went through a major makeover. We've given it a brand new coat of paint and made some tweaks here and there to give you more personalised results. Tap on your loan under "Your Accounts" and see if you can get a better deal! 🏡
We've added a few other touches of polish and finesse. You know, new year, new me!
7 January 2021
Happy new year!
Silly season is finishing up so it's time to buckle down again and make your money work harder for you. The crew at Finder have polished things up and made some enhancements to our notifications - we wouldn't want you to miss a thing!
P.S. We have two new features in the works and the waitlists are filling up fast! Have you secured your spot yet?
30 November 2020
We're getting ready to kick-off 2021 with the launch of two shiny new features. But, we'll only be releasing these to an exclusive group of Finder members to start. To get in on the goss, update the app and join the waitlists!
27 November 2020
We love releasing new features, but more importantly, we love helping Finder members with making better decisions every day. Some of our new features require an update so from now on we'll give you a little nudge when you need to update the app. We'd hate for you to miss out on all of the new things we release!
17 November 2020
A few weeks ago, we introduced our shiny new feature: chance of approval for credit cards! 💳
We continued on the chance of approval train for this particular release and added a few finishing touches.
There are way too many types of credit cards and it's pretty hard to pick one. Yeah, we get it. But that won't be a problem anymore because we can now ask you a few questions and help you choose the right type of card 😎.
Of course, we also fixed a bunch of bugs that were crawling around here and there. Let's take a moment of silence to remember the bugs that are no longer with us 🙏.
19 October 2020
Introducing Finder's chance of approval for credit cards! 💳
At Finder, we're committed to our mission of helping the world make better decisions. Part of this mission is about helping you make decisions with more confidence and less uncertainty.
A few months ago, we took the uncertainty out of the application process for personal loans and launched the ability for you to check your likelihood of approval before applying.
Now we're bringing this feature to credit cards.
You can now check how likely you are to get approved for a credit card before you apply (and without affecting your credit score). The best bit is that Finder is the first and only place in Australia where you can get this right now.
Neat right? See how it works in detail here.
Getting started is easy – just get your credit score, then compare credit cards in the Finder app and voila – that's it! We'll do the rest and show you a list of credit cards you can apply for and an indication of your likelihood of getting approved.
6 October 2020
This release is all about starting fresh. 🌻 Our newest Finder members will get a glimpse of our slick new onboarding look. We also tidied up a few rough edges in our Savings Insights and squashed a few more bugs across the app.
28 September 2020
iOS 14 is here, and we're celebrating with our very own Finder app widgets for iPhone! 🎉 Add the new Finder graphs widget to your home screen to see your cash balance or your investments at a glance. (We're also working on Android widgets.)
We've launched our very first Siri integration. 💬 Just say "Hey Siri, what are my Finder account balances?", and we'll show you a quick view of all your accounts. This is just the beginning so watch this space! 😎
Make sure you're on iOS 14 and v3.4.0 of the Finder app to start using these new iPhone widgets and chatting to Siri. Check out our full guide to updating to iOS 14 and then head to the App Store to update your app.
You might have noticed that we recently moved our search bar to the top of the dashboard to make it faster for you to compare virtually anything you want. We've also added even more product categories (we have over 100 now!) for you to compare from inside the Finder app.
Plus, we've made searching for banks when connecting a new account smarter so that you don't need to type the bank's exact name to find it and connect to it. 🤓
9 September 2020
This release is just a pit stop along the journey. We've been busy squashing bugs and polishing things up so we're ready to go for the next big feature!

If you pay for your electricity bill from one of the connected accounts in the Finder app, you will see an Electricity Insight in the Savings tab.

We'll do all the hard work and search through our product database to see if you can get a better deal. 🔍

This release is all about revamping the Dashboard and a shiny new savings insight! 😎
Now that you can connect your super and investments to the Finder app, we've built the investments graph to only display information from these connected accounts. Choose between the cash position and the investments graphs so you can keep an eye on all your finances. 👀 📈
We've also moved the search bar to the very top, so you can find the best deals even faster. Just another way to search and compare the thousands of products in Finder's database to find exactly what you need. 👌
We also have a brand new savings insight for mobile plans.📱 If you are currently on a SIM-only mobile plan, this one's for you. We'll search through our product database to see if we can find you a similar plan, only cheaper! ✨ Make sure you have a mobile plan bill under the Products and Bills tab. If it isn't there, you can manually add your bill by selecting the correct transaction from your account. 👌 All you need to do next is answer a few simple questions about your plan and we'll do the rest.

Our credit card savings have also gone through a revamp, with a completely new look and feel. ✨ Last time we released a nifty feature to choose which credit card you own. Now, we've taken that a step further – choose your card from our list, compare your options and see how much you save, all within the Finder app.
22 May 2020
We're cooking up another major improvement to the comparison experience in the app and we've decided to release a little teaser 🎉.
When you connect your credit card to the Finder app, you can now choose which credit card you own from a list powered by our extensive database. This is just the beginning - keep your eyes peeled for more to come 👀.
This release is also about polish. The past couple of releases were dedicated to two big features - connecting super and investment accounts, and finding your chance of approval for a personal loan. Our engineers have been squashing bugs 🐞 and smoothing out rough edges for our new features to shine a bit brighter ✨.
8 May 2020

We're getting ready for public launch with some key improvements 🎉
We made some core infrastructure upgrades so we're ready when we open up the doors to our beloved waitlist members.
No more bad pin codes! Your security is one of our highest priorities so we're saying "no" to bad pin codes and making it harder for unwanted access to your account.
Our data scientists worked some magic on our automatic bill detection! With the improved logic, the app can do a much better job at identifying your bills from your transactions. And then finding where you can save 🙂.
- Our credit score bands needed some tweaking, and that's exactly what we did.
28 February 2020
Looking for something new? We've got you sorted.
You can now start comparing right from the app without ever going to Google.

We've built them from scratch to make the experience smoother. Get swiping and read up on all of your personalised content.
