Doesn't sound very convenient to be carrying a desktop computer about when you're shopping!!

Debt Manager on Iphone - 0.69

Seems really good and you can set it up to automatically show your monthly payments coming off!

Does it work out the interest properly? Ive found some of these apps are aimed at the american market where APR has a different definition, it can throw the maths off

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?

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!

I think applications that run on phones wont run on laptops/desktops as well, but some companies do versions of their phone apps for computers too. Tend to be more expensive though

I find spreadsheets so fiddly on a phone, prefer these custom made apps for finance

The cost of obtaining and running an iphone probably added to some of the financial difficulties experienced by some. I have a very user-friendly smartphone that costs hundreds less than an iphone.

I was debt free when I got my 1st iPhone and managed to get a great deal initially for 15 per month, when I upgraded to the iPhone 5 I made sure I got another good deal and that I could afford the monthly bill which I can.
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.

It was brand new in June 2010 when I got the iPhone 4, I got a loyalty discount with my network. I upgraded to the 5 in September as the menu button was sticking and I got good cash back so the 5 cost me practically nothing in the end!

Excellent, people do assume you have to pay a lot to use iphones, not true!

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?

If you only want a phone I can see your point, if you want a mobile computer with extraordinarily cheap software it actually represents a saving versus the valid alternatives
