the main purpose of saver (formerly called christmas club) is to track and visualize a bank account without ever actually moving money around.
app organization
4/9
the app is divided into three main sections, arranged vertically: the middle shows how much money you have available to spend, the top shows what you've saved, and the bottom shows your entire account balance.
savings balance (top)
+ available spending balance (middle / home)
= total account balance (bottom)
savings balance
(swipe up from home)
calculated by: subtracting money spent over budget from the user's savings goal
available spending balance
(home)
calculated by subtracting the user's savings goal from their income
recent transactions
