Category auto-selection from description
It would be nice if, instead of showing category selection panel first when adding a transaction, the app just started showing the whole transaction panel (probably with the word 'Choose' in category selection and also a greyed out disabled 'Save' button for obvious reasons), so one would start by typing the description, let's say 'Walmart', as one begins to type it, it shows a suggestion list from profile history. After picking the word 'Walmart' from the list, it fetches the last category used for this transaction description, let's say 'Groceries' and automatically fill in the category section.
Many of us shop multiple times at the same place, eat at the same restaurant, etc. It should be easier to add this repeated transactions, not as recurrent but repeated (as it doesn’t always happen at a given period of time).
This way it would make the transaction adding flow much easier and faster and it would prevent mistyping description or misselecting category.
Imagine you typed 'Walmart' when adding the transaction and someday you want to know how much you spent specifically at that place on a given month by searching the word 'Walmart', the mistyped transaction won't show up. Or imagine you added it to 'Shopping' category instead of 'Groceries', and you try to fetch a report of your expenses on groceries, it would be incorrect.
