So ... every time you close the fridge it takes a picture which you can look at on your mobile. So your SO can see that you had a midnight snack and ate his / her yoghurt, or - if your fridge is anything like mine - can't see bugger all because it's full.
And as for the "start your day Smarter" bit ... walk to the kitchen - you were there anyway to make the coffee - open the door. Look. Go "Oh, it's full of food" or "Oh, I need to get milk". And save yourself £150 ...

... and on the Getting Started page the very first suggested option: "Connect your Bank Account"
... IT'S A ing DEMO ACCOUNT!!
... plus yes I do see all your "helpful reminders" to buy
You really think I wanna give you my bank account as my very first action ??? IN A DEMO ACCOUNT???
in fact even if bought [not just me, any accountant] linking a bank account is way down the list after: basic testing, setting/examining the COA, customers, suppliers, producing invoices, inputting bills, checking reports ..."
