Glean

A personal finance app for people who don't want to deal with personal finance.

Modern personal finance theory puts strong emphasis on automation. The more automation you have in place, the easier it is to stick to your plan. Automated systems allow you to stop sweating the small tasks.

So, why do budgeting apps force you into repetitive manual labor?

Now, consider that your time and attention is finite. Time spent focusing on minute detail comes at the expense of larger items.

Your attention narrows until you’re focusing on things like the latte you bought last week, but miss how much you’re spending on management fees.

Your personal finance tools should work for you,
not the other way around.

That's why I'm making Glean.

Some questions you may have

And... who are you?
Hi, I'm Ethan! 👋 I'm a software engineer with over 15 years of experience building software. I've used every finance app out there, some to great success.

However, I've always felt like they fall short. I've resulted to using multiple apps and spreadsheets to manage my financial life. Glean is my attempt to build the perfect tool for me, and I'm betting you'll like it too.
How will Glean make money?
No ads, no offers, no selling your data. Glean will likely be a subscription service. Charging a fee allows me to focus on building the best product that I can in a sustainable way.
When does this 🚀 launch?
The alpha release will be sometime in 2021. Drop your email in the form above to get occastional updates.
