    If this is a popularly requested feature, what is to stop you from doing this? I'd love the ability to add more categories that fit my personal spending. To me, this is a no brainer to have this feature.

    I want to add that I love this app as it's near perfect with it's user friendly interface and ease of use, unlike other financial apps I've used it the past.

    PLEASE consider adding this feature. It will be appreciated by so many.

    Thank you.

    Please implement this feature! It is so essential for expense tracking! How am I supposed to know how much I spend on gas vs. tolls vs. parking for example, having 1 category of transportation just doesn't cut it! Every tracking program already has this feature. I love NerdWallet but hard to commit to this app without this feature.

    We need a way to split transactions too. Stuff bought at Wal mart, for example, usually falls into different categories

    PLEASE consider adding a customizable category! Your categories do not match my expenses which makes it impossible to use the app for accurate budgeting and spending info.

    I am considering using Nerdwallet to get away from spreadsheets, like your email said, but I will need to add additional Categories. Please consider making that a priority.

    Laura's right, we need not just customizable categories, but split transactions too.

    I came to Nerdwallet after Mint changed, but I need something that is customizable. That's one thing I liked best about Mint. For instance, I don't see a category for gift giving. At this time of year, it seems like that category would be especially useful. Customizability is a top priority for me in a service like this.

    Without this option, I'm going to have to leave NerdWallet. 

    Please e-mail me when your app is updated.

    Former Mint User here.  Mint had this feature but unfortunately I was forced to migrate to Intuit.  Please add this!

    If you can't add custom categories, please add a "Recreation" category in the meantime. It is an important category for many people. I'm loving Nerd Wallet by the way. Keep up the good work!

    In the age of internet, NerdWallet doesn't have a category for internet services? Srsly?
    No category for Home Care, like gardners, plumbing repairs, HOA fees. I've had to put a lot of stuff under "Services" or "Other" which will not show where *my* money is actually going.

    Please, please add this (even if only under the "other" category).

    Not desiring to pile on here, but I do completely agree with the need to ADD categories. If the programming is too difficult for me to be able to add my own categories, then perhaps you could consider adding a dozen more of the more common ones. Personally I would prefer to add my own as needed. Thanks, and I do like the APP, add this feature and I will love it and use it.

    I want to comment again. I commented 3 years ago, and I have since stopped using this app entirely because for whatever reason these guys STILL cannot figure out how to redevelop their app so that users can add their own transaction categories. I hardly think they even read these comments...

    Testing out nerdwallet. Former Mint user and current every dollar user. Not being able to customize or split transactions is definitely not a good thing! Not sure how to make this app work without those options.

    Adding my voice - can’t believe I can’t add categories! This app is fairly useless without this option as it won’t really show me the information I need. 3 years and you still haven’t figured this out?!
