    *Budget and Money Apps List* 11th Jan 12 at 2:33 PM
    Hi,

    I was looking around the site and did a search and found a few posts about mobile apps for keeping track of your money and there seem to be a few out there that people use. So I thought to help people out I would list all the ones that people use and the one I use and find great called EasyMoney for android. I love this app as you can make as many categories as you like and then view a report on your expenditure by category so you can see where all your money goes!!!

    I think this is very handy as I see people say they have done a budget and should have 300 say left over but they actually manage to spend this but don't know how. So if you have this app with you, you can quickly bash in the things your buying as you buy them.


    Anyway onto the list:

    Android:

    EasyMoney - 30 day trial / Not Free
    Expense Manager - Free

    Apple:

    Spendometer - Free
    Expenses Book - 69p
    Accounts - 69p??
    Balance - Free
    My Weekly Budget - 69p
    HomeBudget - Is this free?
    Account Tracker - 1.99

    Blackberry:

    Do not know of any - Can you recommend any?

    Windows 7:

    Do not know of any - Can you recommend any?




    So that's what I have at the moment and if you have any apps you use then please post them up and I will add them to the list. Would also be great if this can be stickied I think.

    I have an android. Tried money owl but not over impressed. Would like to try one on laptop first, for some reason I find it easier to look around then transfer to using an app. Is this possible?

    Account Tracker has a free version where you can enter 20 transactions to test it... I use this, used the guys website which is accessible through 'help' on the app to help me set it up & am totally in love. Currently budgeting month 2 via it... LOVE it

    You can add everything in, current accounts, saving accounts, credit cards. I've got paypal and cashback site balances in mine also, as well as 'cash' as I always have a lot of cash floating about that I use for odd payments.

    Cannot recommend this app enough for anyone looking for one.

    Another one here who loves this app! I paid for the full version, the best money I have spent on an app I might add! It keeps me on the straight and narrow with my finances.

    I have inputs for Bank Accounts, Cash, Mortgage savings (soon to be mortgage payments), Savings Accounts, Niece's savings, Coin savings and Credit Cards.

    You are able to input Direct Debits/Standing Orders and any other reoccurring transactions you may have into it as well

    I have tried other apps but this is the one that works for me and I can update it as I spend!

    So many iPhone users here too, that's not very frugal either

    I also have an iPad which I got for free and is wifi only. If it hadn't been free I wouldn't have it as it is so expensive.

    Yeah if you get an older model like the iphone4 now, which does the same thing as the new iphone5 but has a smaller screen, you can get deals like that. They bring out a new one so often now that getting the older model isn't an issue, its still really modern and runs all the apps.

    You get Kindle apps from the amazon app store, which will contain all sorts of stuff, I expect finance apps would be a part of it.

    The apple app store is still the leader in terms of quantity and quality of available apps, but I expect you'll find some options you can use on the amazon app store on your kindle.

    Anyone know of finance apps available in the amazon app store?
