Gained ability to search transactions!
Original review: I like the layout of this new app, but it took away a feature that I used more than any other (aside from transferring funds). It lost its ability to search transactions within my accounts. It feels like a downgrade for my needs. I hope they update this feature. The new layout/features aren't worth the upgrade when you take away a basic, helpful tool. Very frustrating!! Update: It's been a year or so & even with other upgrades, there is still no search function for me to look up a specific charge, amount, or vendor. Still frustrated. 2nd update (4-2-18): its been probably another year since my last update & I STILL CAN’T DO A BASIC SEARCH THROUGH MY TRANSACTIONS on the new app. PLEEEEEASE fix this!!!!! It’s a pretty basic function. Still frustrated! Summer 2018: I can now search my transactions...easily. THANK YOU for correcting this. This app now has everything I need & then some. 5 stars!!

I first app needs work
I like having an app that I can access my account information. I wouldn’t really encourage though that the banks somehow make sure that the balance is showing on the app are the correct balances numerous times I’ve gone to use my card in a bind to find out, I’m being declined, even though my balance shows available credit every week this happens. I know university credit union had an option where you could see your balances without having to log all the way in. It can be viewed just by clicking on the app as well as choosing which balances you wanted to view. I would really like that option back again it is annoying when I’m driving and I have to wait to stop in order to login and view my account balances, or if I’m in a hurry, I end up putting in the wrong password or are you login which sends a fraud alert to my phone. And then the balances that I do see most the time are incorrect. It’s actually getting to the point where it just tracks charges for me but I have to wait 3 to 4 business days for it to actually show the correct balance which makes the app kinda useless.

Frustrating UI
Frustrating user interface, navigation is not intuitive. Bill pay feature is (??) still on the old interface? Their old app was much more user friendly, workflow was intuitive. Their new app feels like it was built by a start up company with no “banking” UX experience. The design is “cute”, but functionality and workflow feels like it was programmed by folks that either have minimal real life banking experience, or don’t bank in the US. I also cannot stand how difficult it is to cancel a lost or stolen card. This feature is critical. The new app makes you go to a completely different app to manage your cards. I lost my card (after business hours of course), had to call their customer support and was on the phone >1hr either on hold or redialing their number because we lost connection twice. I’ve used UofU CU for decades and this new app is the reason I’m leaving. I gave 2 stars because the landing page is nice, Zelle works great, and their in-person branch tellers are wonderful people who deserve accolades.

Adding to everyone else- UPDATE IS AWFUL
I’ll start by saying I love this credit Union. Everything has always been wonderful and I’ve never had any issues before. That being said, the new update is awful! It doesn’t load and I’ve had about a million and one issues with transfers. You can’t refresh when in the app and it doesn’t update available balance for pending transactions either and I’ve noticed my account balance has been wrong a lot whenever I check. Not sure if it’s correlated or not but I’ve also had an increased amount of online payment declines for small purchases (when there’s clearly enough in my account) and have to manually approve purchases through the card management app. It’s quite frustrating. I’m also not a fan of the layout, it’s a lot more chaotic than the previous version. In addition to everything else, the features don’t work majority of the time and the app crashes frequently. All in all, the update seems like a major downgrade from the previous version and has caused more inconveniences than should ever be necessary.

Really Not An Improvement
I wish I could give this app a better rating, but I can’t bring myself to do it. The old app definitely needed a facelift, and this app has a more modern look to it, but it is incredibly clunky. There are so many times where I’ve had to completely close the app right after signing in because it simply won’t load. It just gives a blank white screen. When the home page does load, there have been a plethora of moments where, I click on an account, or I try to make a transfer, and the app goes blank, crashes, or generally doesn’t respond. This “improved” app has been around for a while now, and the updates help (a little) but it is not remotely reliable. In fact, it’s been an amazing incentive to do my banking in person. Tangentially related is the website. It has, basically, the same problems. Blank screens after login requiring multiple page refreshes for it to finally display, etc. I would love to see this app be great, but it’s currently anything but.

Does its job… kind of
Mobile deposit wont work about 50% of the time. Transfer menu is confusing. No way to name sub accounts or external accounts. Separate card manager app is obnoxious and confusing as well. Also, it’s crazy that all of the debit cards from Ufirst now look identical. I have 3 separate checking accounts, and all of the cards look exactly the same, with no option to customize card images. I’ve literally had to write with sharpie on each card to let myself know which card belongs to which account. These are nitpicky problems I know, but I’ve talked to many other people who feel the same. From what I’ve seen most other credit unions don’t have these issues. Ive been with University for a decade, and I want to stay, but I really miss the old University Credit Union app, and the old online banking system, and the old cards.

Bad app
Online check deposit is the worst! After you deposit your check using the app you have no way of knowing the status of your deposit! I deposited a check using this app two days ago and it still hasn’t posted and there are no indicators on the app stating the progress of the deposit. There is nothing that lets you know the status, it’s as if you never even made the deposit! It should tell you if there’s a hold or how long the hold will be. There should be a way to see that your check was even deposited! You’re just left in limbo waiting to see if the check was even accepted after the initial deposit! It’s actually leading me to close my account and go with another institution. Just a horrible app The funny thing is is that the check I deposited is from the same bank so you’d think it would be accepted faster since it comes from the same institution but no…you’re just left in limbo

Terrible use of screen real estate
When scrolling down through transactions it covers the top half of the screen with a red banner that shows your balance. This banner ought to scroll off when you scroll down so the whole screen is full of transactions. There is no point in taking up half my screen permanently with info that I only want to see once. And it’s super obnoxious that when I go to deposit a check it pops up a dialogue with a contract that I agree to write the words of their choice on the check before depositing it. This manipulation is offensive. They should instead pop up a note later saying that the deposit was successful so please mark it as deposited to avoid confusion. What if I mark it as deposited but in fact it fails? Then they’ve forced me to improperly track my deposits and they’ve messed me up. This has happened twice. This is really an unprofessional operation.

Bring back the old app
I’ve been suffering through this new app since its release, from back buttons that log you out instead of taking you back to your account summary page to needing to pay off an overdraft balance 2x because the first payment doesn’t pay interest. But now it’s reached a new all time low (if that was even possible), and I can’t pay off my credit card on the app. I now need to log in to the website to make the payment because the line of credit accounts no longer show up in the list when making a transfer. The developers comment that they appreciate the feedback, but have done nothing to change since the new app was released, I’m fed up. After almost 10 years of being a happy credit union member, I’ve officially started to look for a new place to do my banking. TL;DR I’m looking for a new bank/CU because this app is so hard to use

Horrible for year end accounting
After all the time I spent making categories for my business account I cannot get detailed information for each category in order to do my taxes. Also, when I put in an expense, sometimes it won’t save the name I give it and reverts back to the wrong name or category. I had high hopes that looking at my expenses in preparation for taxes that I’d be able to easily see the categories I created and do easy filters, but no actually I wasted a ton of time and effort keeping track of everything in my university of Utah credit union bank account, I need to find a better system or app. it shouldn’t be that hard to get a total of deposits, and a total of expenses for each individual category especially when you search for that specific category in your account that you created.

Why did you change it?
I do not like how it’s changed. I do not like how the debits and credit show up in my checking, etc, accounts they used to show up clearly. NOW they don’t show up so great, I like more of a distinct printing, or look between them, Yes I understand how it works And yes, I understand which ones are the debits and which ones are the credits… but I liked the other way before you changed it better ! I just don’t care for any of the changes really that you’ve made in the app. I feel like somebody has bought out or taken over university Credit Union because of all the big changes. I’m not happy with that either. You asked, I told you.

Another bad update
No FICO score. Just some Experian garbage. I want my FICO that affects bank loans not a garbage scores related to credit cards. They are different FICOs! Clicking services crashes the app. Worst part is no loan payoff amount listed or included in payoff. You make two payments because the leftover interest. A feature that was finally added and fixed was removed. Stealing extra money maybe? You also no longer have anything saying what your loan payment amount is or option to just select the monthly payment amount to pay it. Last annoying change is they have you go into a loan to transfer money to it not from it and removed the quick transfer feature to select accounts from the home page of the app. FIRE YOUR DEVELOPERS! I’ve been saying it for years!

I’m not sure who decided it was time to change the website and mobile app but whoever is responsible to the new UX did not UsFIRST. A simple card sort and revised information architecture with a guide tour on log in would’ve been fine. But many of the affordances created through the new system have been lost. Example: color coded transactions in the account view (green for deposit was great - now there is no differentiator). Similarly the roll out was atrocious. There was no warning whatsoever on the day the website transferred over. So, when I went to login I was suspiciously asked to change my password after being guided from an error page… Then had to call in because I refused to do so which locked my account. Again, two for two on TERRIBLE UX and CX. Lastly, when the new system went live I also lost the links I made to external accounts and can no longer access my credit card rewards. This was all preventable. The CX team (if there even is one) needs to regroup and get some feedback that is better representative of the user population because this new UX has failed each task and use case I’ve presented to it.

Removed remaining amount due on acct balance page.
I love this Credit Union, I will say first. I have a couple of car loans with them and I used to be able to just bring up my account balances and see the remaining amount due for the month on those and the credit card I have here. Now I have to dig for them. I know it’s minor, but it was one thing I really appreciated on this app versus other apps I use since I usually pay on them weekly and need to keep track of where I am.

New Update is Awful
I’ve been a UFirst member for about 6 years. The new update (as of November 2022) has rendered the app unusable, whereas before it was really easy to use and highly preferred to the mobile/desktop site. The new “quick transfer” feature doesn’t work (in fact I can’t transfer at all from the app and have to do it from the mobile site, which now just looks like a copy of the app). You can’t select any of your accounts from the drop down menus. The features that actually made it “quick” transfer like the “payoff balance” option are gone for some reason? The app crashes every time I open it. Please fix the bugs that make the app unusable and bring back the features that made it actually easy and fast.

New Update Not Mobile Friendly
The previous version was much more straightforward and accessible. The new update looks and functions like a website trying and failing to match to a mobile search engine app. It’s cluttered, slow, and difficult to find things that were previously easily available. If the app developers wanted to add the goal and financial tracking functions, it would have been better to provide a separate tab on the original app that worked like the current version, but left the main screen basically the same as it was before. Previously great to use, really irritated by the slow loading and format of the new update.

Love my credit union
I have been with University C/U (UFirst) for over 30 years, I love my C/U, every time I need a loan the are they there saying yes we can do that, and they beat all the other financial institutions rate, when they detect a fraudulent transaction they immediately notify me, if any of my cards are lost or stolen, they turn them off, then issue a new card the same day, did I mention I love my Credit Union..

Frequent glitches and functionality that is unavailable.
Hopeful for some improvements to the functionality over time. Generally, the app does what it needs to do for basic functions. However I have encountered frequent times when functions were not available and error messages would come up, or app crashing while trying to take photos of checks. Appreciate the design and the potential. I do rely on it every day and whish I could count on it always working for me.

Since update, app crashes
Ever since this app was updated in November, it has started randomly crashing when I am first trying to open the app. Also, they got rid of one of my favorite features, which was the ability to add notes to my transactions. This was so helpful for me to be able to track what I was actually spending my money on. The only new feature to come out if the update is the ability to schedule recurring transfers on a monthly, bi-weekly, or really whatever basis I choose. That is very nice. Please don’t get rid of that. But BRING BACK THE NOTES!!! And FIX THE CRASHING!!!

Not all change is good
The credit union used to be referred to as University First. When the application reflected the same name, everything worked quickly, smoothly and easily. The moment they changed their logo and branding to this UFirst business, everything bogged down. The application is slow to respond. Sometimes it hangs up completely. Logging in is slower, sometimes it won’t work at all. There were rarely issues before the rebrand. Not sure how or why they made the changes that they did but it was not for the better.

No option to pay full balance? No back buttons?
I liked the new app until I realized how hard it is again to pay off overdrafts. The old app let you pay off the full balance. It was easy to find and easy to do. I would think there’s be something in the overdraft account that would let you do this but now it’s another 6 step process. And why aren’t there back buttons? Have to go back through the whole menu to go back? Come on. Who designed this?

Fix the app
Stupid I can’t directly deposit a business check into my business acct. without having to deposit it 1st into my personal then transfer it to my business acct using your app. I can’t pick where to deposit a check in my personal either checking or savings but not directly to my business account. What’s up with that? Fix it. Months later and here we are in the same place. Still can’t mobile deposit checks into my business acct. Calling the main number to the CU isn’t going to fix your ap maybe I’ll take my $ somewhere else if this doesn’t get fixed

New Update is horrendous!
Whoever designed the new update did a terrible job at making a mobile friendly app. It functions like a website making it confusing and slow to use. The color coded deposit and transaction features were an easy way to balance checkbooks and see money being added or taken away. Similarly, now that pending balances are no longer, I never truly know how much I have in my account. The old app was much easier to navigate and was a lot more mobile friendly, go back to the drawing board and do some user tests because this is awful!

I’ve been a member with UFIRST credit union for almost two years and I am delighted with the service I’ve gotten with the app. It’s easy to use, easy to make payments, and they also process payments extremely fast in comparison to other apps that take days or even weeks to process payments.

My car was broken into this Sunday where all my cards were stolen. I went into the app to cancel my cards where I had to download a completely new app JUST for the cards… AND I HAD TO ENTER MY CARD NUMBERS TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT. how do you expect me to know all my card #’s??!!! so than I called to cancel and of course the locations were closed on sundays. I than stayed on the line for the customer service where I was on the phone with a service agent for 30+ minutes of him repeating the same question. And in the end he said he couldn’t cancel without the card numbers. Absolutely Ridiculous.

Mobile deposit
This is getting very frustrating!!! I made a mobile deposit on Friday after UFCU hours because I needed to pay some bills. It’s now Sunday at 7:30pm and it’s still pending?????? I could have easily deposited the check on Saturday morning, but being I already deposited it I couldn’t! Sometimes it goes through in the past and sometimes it ends up in cyberspace for days!!! I always have plenty of lighting and take the best picture of the front and back without using a tripod!!!!!! Bills are now late. Didn’t get my truck in to get fixed and eating top Roman for dinner tonight!!! You guys need to figure it out or I’ll be more than happy to close my accounts and move on. Thanks

The app has moderate malfunctions and poorly represents Credit Union, that I am loyal to. I have had problems with transferring money between accounts., simply login to the mobile app I have to do multiple times to get facial recognition to work, and last month I was unable to pull e- statements. The developers and maintenance should know that they created inconveniences for the customers and I’ve even considered switching credit unions just because of the mobile banking. In my opinion its absolute garbage.

Cancelled my account because of the update.
I quite literally closed my account because of their app update. It’s awful to use, and when I paid my $5.52 in overdraft in FULL, why does it now say I still had another .03 CENTS to pay off? That’s ridiculous and it never used to happen. When I paid the balance in full, it was paid. None of this weird cent difference once you pay it off. There are a plethora of other issues, but I closed my account because of it. I run my finances through my phone, I need it to be easy.

Buggy / bad UX
Some functions are okay but this app is mostly just not delightful to use. Want to redeem your rewards? Gotta open up a browser. Want to use face recognition for log in? Sorry we are experiencing issues. Would you like dark mode so your retinas can operate into your twilight years? No, stare directly into this screen that rivals the brightness of Alpha Canis Majoris. Outside their shady practices around arbitration agreements, I like this credit union. However, my avoidance of using this app has resulted in making poor financial decisions. Perhaps that’s by design.

4 stars because the app has been steadily improved over the last few years, but only 4 stars because external transfers are somehow still not available. The app is a near mirror of the acceptable website the credit union has put together, save for transfers to linked external accounts.
