    *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.

    Another vote for Spending Log from me. Not free, 69p but thats pretty close to free!

    The company behind Spending Log have a few good finance apps, heres some more for the list: (all iphone)

    Fuel Economy Calculator
    My Budgets-Expense Tracker
    Savings Goals
    Bill Assistant
    Mileage Logger
    Free Home Budget Calculator - that one is free! rest are 69p

    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.

    Expensense for iPhone. It's 69p but has a lite version where you can trial up to 20 transactions.
    It's the only one I can find that works for me as it allows me to enter my fluctuating income manually, allows my 20 (at least) different accounts, and is the mOst versatile and flexible I could find

    I use EasyMoney and do like it (I paid for the full version), although it does have it its glitches. I had a brief encounter with one called "Money Lover" but found it a bit lacking and stuck to EasyMoney instead.

    Android user here. Used to use eeba envelopes which was good but have bought full version of easy money because it is such a user friendly app and was fed up of deleting whole app at end of month and reinstalling n losing my data when free trial was over. Had a few others but easy money suits.x

    Ah... back to the days when I got my iPhone contract... 2 years of 30 per month? Free phone?! Wonderful!!!

    That was pre-debt, pre-pregnancy, pre being forced to move on a few weeks notice, and only being able to find unfurnished flats after living in a furnished one...

    Roll on February when I can roll that contract to a monthly sim, because the iPhone 4 is still the most awesome gadget in my world.

    iPhones might seem expensive to some compared to other phones but the software is dirt cheap and you more than make up for the slightly higher contract cost with the bargain software

    Are you really saving money sticking with an old pc and buying software in boxes at 30quid+ each when you can have your computer in your pocket spending 69p each instead?
