However apps exist in every imaginable category and one such category that is growing leaps and bounds is finance. Specifically personal finance. Apps that help you save money, invest money, make more or simply manage your money better. With that in mind, we decided to look at how to use finance apps to manage your money – all with the swipe of your hand. Let’s take a look.
1. Organize Your Finances –
One of the best things about finance apps is that they allow you to organize your money in a way that is quick, painless and convenient. Whether you’re commuting to and from work or sitting in a doctors office waiting for your appointment; with apps you can do so much in so little time and with ease. Take for example, an app like (Mint.com) that allows you to enter in your personal banking details and manage most if not all of your banking needs from your handy dandy cell phone. You can move money around, save more, invest or simply keep an eye on it. Over time the creators of these finance apps have made them more and more sophisticated adding additional features that just a few short years ago didn’t exist. Making them invaluable tools in your personal finance arsenal.
2. Keep Track Of –
Another highly coveted feature of finance apps is the ability to keep track of your money, to the tee. Some people like to know exactly where the money is going each and every month, a tally of sorts – if you will. There are apps just for this purpose, apps like Outright.com and others. You need to enter in personal details, however these tools have heavy security features built in which make handing over this information more of a no brainer.
