Four Best Budgeting Apps
Let these mobile tools track your finances for you so you can better manage your money—finally.
Sticking to your budget is challenging enough. Creating one should be easy. Keep track of your receipts with Lemon—Receipts Refreshed. Snap a picture of paper receipts with your smartphone’s camera—or email online receipts to your Lemon account—and Lemon logs them into categories, from groceries to nights on the town.
You often give to others; now’s the time to start saving for that big purchase you’ve been wanting. Mint.com pulls in all your bank accounts, categorizes your transactions and also creates a personalized budget, so you can easily see where you’re spending and where you can save. Monitor your accounts in real time, track your progress against your budget, and get alerts and reminders to make sure you avoid any late fees and unexpected charges, so you can meet your goals.
It’s easy to lose receipts and forget what you bought where when you’re out on marathon shopping trips, but Expense IQ helps you keep up with everything in one place. It’s a checkbook register, expense tracker, bills reminder, and budget planner all in one, and you can use it to take photos of your receipts and bills.
You have enough to carry just getting your shopping bags out to the car. Luckily, Mobile Checkbook makes toting a checkbook around obsolete. Use it to stay on top of your bank account. Instantly record all banking transactions on multiple accounts.
