Plum adds customisable widgets to investing app

Investment app Plum has added customisable savings pots as a widget feature for iOS users.

Plum users can now view how much the pots on their iOS home screen without having to open the app.

Plum, which aims to compete with the likes of Monzo, Revolut and Starling in offering innovative savings options, helps customers put away money into a savings ‘pocket’, which they can personalise with a specific goal they want to save for, and the new home screen feature simplifies the way users can keep track of progress made.

Plum claims the move makes it one of the first financial apps to offer a widget feature to UK customers, says and there are plans to extend this functionality to include other features and future investment products.

This comes as Plum is investing heavily in its proposition following itsl Series A funding,which raised $24 million in November.The company is planning to launch a new US stock investing product later this month.
