I deleted a balance in an Account but it still shows up in a Collection. Why?

This is the way collections work and is not a bug.  A collection brings together data from more than 1 account. In the case you are describing you must have a balance in another account on the date in question that is also included in the collection. For example, imagine a collection called "House Equity" which has the accounts "House Value" and "Mortgage" as members. To start with let's also assume that balances exist for both accounts on 8 Dec 2019, 15 Dec 2019 and 14 Jan 2020. The collection will show a balance on all 3 dates : the sum of the balances of each account on these dates. Now assume you deleted the balance on 15 Dec for the Mortgage account only. The collection will still show a balance on 15 Dec : the sum of the balance on 15 Dec for House Value and the previous balance for Mortgage  (the one from 8 Dec in this instance). You would need to also delete the balance in House Value on the 15 Dec for that date to disappear in the Collect

Can I share data between my devices in Clever Net Worth?

Not by default - but you can set it up to share the data via iCloud.  Here are some examples of why you may want to do this: You currently use the app on your iPhone but you want to start using it on a new iPad. You want to start using the app on your Mac instead of your iPad. Because data is stored locally on your device, it cannot be accessed automatically from another device.   For example, if you have both an iPhone and an iPad connected to the same Apple ID, Clever Net Worth may get installed automatically on both devices when you first purchase it from one of them.  However the two versions will act independently and not share data. You can however change this so you use the same data store on all your devices.  Go here for a guide on how to do this. Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay

Can I automatically download my latest balance in Clever Net Worth from my bank account?

Clever Net Worth does not provide automatic linkages to your bank accounts.  This app is based on you entering (manually) a single balance whenever it suits you rather than capturing all your individual transactions (which would be a pain to do manually).  We choose to maintain an increased level of security by not needing the app to have access to your accounts. However, you can cut and paste the latest balance if you so desire.  On an iPad you can even have two windows open side by side (see the image below for an example) with say Clever Net Worth on the left and your bank’s app on the right and then cut and paste between them.

Where do the puzzle images come from?

Every puzzle image has been sourced with licensing that allows commercial usage (e.g. WikiMedia Commons with appropriate Public Domain or CC licences).  Every image source is linked so the player can access all the original metadata including attribution and licensing information if desired.  When playing any puzzle, tap the "Image Attribution" button (to the right of the image title).  A Safari window will be opened displaying the original source page.
