Managing your finances can be boring, troublesome and stressful. Therefore, a lot of people handle their money-related issues via the Internet and over their home computers. While this is efficient, what happens when you are away from the computer, need more money in the middle of a shopping spree or want to check last year’s stock market fluctuations right now?
Even though it is available only to iOS users, this app is irreplaceable for tracking your expenses and staying on a certain budget. Its most interesting features are subcategories and tags similar to those of a Gmail account. You can label your expenses and sort them into groups – bills, work-related, transport, taxi, personal, etc. – and view them more easily.
Everyone has too many items on their daily itinerary which is why nobody has free time to handle bills. When are they due, you want to know how much they are, and if they used to be higher last month or this time last year. In order for you to stop worrying about these issues, Finovera does it for you. This free app is compatible with Android and iOS systems and collects your bills at one place, handles their dates and alerts you when they are due. Finally, it gives you reports and files the bills in categories.
Traveling has become stressful, which is why you need a good app for traveling on business. Trippeo is expense management software that really takes the load off your shoulders. It is connected to your bank account and automatically does three majorly important things – tracks all the bills you have paid, systemizes them and provides you with extensive reports. Thanks to that, you can dedicate your time on a business trip to actually doing business and now worrying where all your money is. Just make sure you save your receipts and let Trippeo take care of the rest.
When looking at the big picture, you need an app that will notice your payment, track your income, and inform you whenever something important occurs. With one of the most used apps for iOS and Android, Mint, you will get all of the above. Naturally, most people would wonder why they should use other options if this one is so comprehensive, but the answer is simple – this app does cover a number of financial matters, but it is better for you to have separate ones for separate actions instead of relying solely on this one. Use it as a general app, but do not stick just to it.
The philosophy behind these apps is almost the same – they turn your iOS/Android into a payment solution for in-store and online shopping. Mindful that more and more people are using smartphones instead of credit cards, these two apps employ NFC technology to make payment much easier. They also allow you to send money to other people, report your expenses and are in sync with your bank account and your mailbox.
