    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.
