Apps to Track Your Finances

Posted in Loans

If you’re like me, it can be difficult to take time each week to review your budget on an excel spreadsheet. Now this method might work for some people but, I’ve recently turned to my mobile phone to determine how I can manage my money on the go. I love managing my budget on an app because let’s face it – managing money isn’t fun. However, it’s definitely something you need to do and with these apps, it can be much easier.

Evernote

Overview: Evernote is the modern workspace that syncs between all your devices. With this app you can write notes, checklists, organize web articles, documents and photos and discuss your notes with others, right within the app.

Why I love it: It’s not your typical financial app in the sense that it doesn’t show you a budget; but I use this app to make sure that all my bills are paid on time. Every Friday, I will check the app and review my notes to make sure everything is up-to-date and paid. Also, I am able to make notes on each item, as required. It’s also a great app to integrate notes and financial articles/blog posts that are relevant to me.

Where it’s available: Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows 8, and Mac

Expensify

Overview: Track your expenses and lose the paper receipts. Never type receipt details again with unlimited receipt upload and storage.

Why I love it: If you need to keep track of your expenses for work, this is a great resource when you’re on the go.

Where it’s available: Apple iOS, Google Android

Level Money

Overview: Level Money provides you with a simple and clear picture of your finances. It provides you with your Spendable – or safe to spend number – for the day, week and month.

Why I love it: I enter my income, bills, and how much I want to save each month. The app crunches the numbers for me and presents me with my available spending cash. It makes it easier to manage my finances on a daily basis and if my income changes, I can simply adjust it.

Where it’s available: Apple iOS, Google Android

I hope these apps help you in your daily finances. There are many apps available for mobile phones and I definitely recommend you check them out. Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter, if you have any apps that I didn’t list here that you’ve been loving to manage your finances.
