Find out which app best suites you and your budget:
Mint: If you’re looking for one place to track all of your financial activity, look no further than Mint. This app allows users to consolidate all of their finances — including bank accounts, credit cards, retirement accounts, and loans — in one place so they can track their account balances, create a budget, and ensure that bills are paid on time. Even more, Mint allows users to track transactions that involve digital currencies like Bitcoin. This free app is available for both Android and iPhone devices.
SavedPlus: This app — available on Android and iPhone, as well as online — allows users to save money without even thinking about it by automatically making transfers to their savings account whenever they make a purchase. Users are able to choose what percentage of every purchase they want to put away, as well as set limits on the dollar amount and types of purchases that will be included in the savings plan.
RedLaser: If you’re searching for the best deals on consumer products, this app can help you find them. RedLaser allows you to scan any barcode and find out what that product costs at multiple stores in your area. And for your convenience, RedLaser gives you the option to actually buy the product on your mobile device and pick it up at a nearby store.
Budgt: This iPhone app, which costs $1.99, helps users track their daily spending so they can easily stay within their budgets. In order to simplify the process, Budgt can put spending items into different detailed categories and create pie charts for users to reference when they need to quickly see where their money is going. The app also has a travel feature that converts currency, so users can stay on track even when they’re on vacation.
Earmark: If you’re trying to save money for a big expense, such as going on vacation or buying a car, Earmark can help you stay on track. Through this app, every time you don’t spend money on a small luxury, like going out to dinner or to the local coffee shop, you can transfer that money into your bank account to help you reach your goal.
Skyscanner: This free app, which is available for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android, helps users find the best prices on air fares, car rentals, and hotel rooms by searching millions of offers worldwide. Once they’ve found the right deal, users are connected directly with the airline, travel agent, hotel, or rental company to make their purchase. Skyscanner currently offers services in over 29 languages and 70 currencies.
Use these app’s to help maintain your budget, keeping you on the right path to achieve your financial goals.
