Top 10 Must Have Best Android Finance Apps 2013
The name of the app looks inviting and so are its features and functionalities. This is a robust app for managing your personal finances, which allows you to track everything right from overall fincnces, transactions, expenses, pending bills or due payments. Additionally, it runs reports on your expenses and helps you plan your monthly budgets under specific categories. Available in both free and paid versions, the app is totally worth having on your smartphone.
This free app is quite simple as compared to other apps on this list. However, its simplicity is what makes it special as it quite useful for those of you, who have never used a finance app before on your mobile. Use it to add your income and expenses, track the transactions made and manage budgets. Also, you can use it to manage your budget by examining your spending and savings via graphs and charts.
Mint has been at the top of finance apps for quite a while and why not? It is one of the best finance apps to use for budgeting. You can manually add your transactions and even refresh a bank account and tweak your budgets. Personally, I feel that it is a great app to manage your finances on the go. The only thing is that you may be redirected to the website for certain things. Still, I would say its worth a try.
Here comes another free finance management tool. PageOnce can not only help you pay your bills through the phone but also allows you to closely track your finances and expenses. The best part of this app is an attractive interface, when you want to see reports related to your finances. However, if you are looking for a tool that extensively manages your budgets as well, this is not the app for you.
This free app acts like your financial calendar. It automatically updates your finances, including the little details, which you may overlook. It also alerts you about your debits and transactions and gives a concise report from various financial data such as salaries, sales etc.
This free app helps you customize and prioritize your finance to the very last detail. Use it and manage multiple accounts, manage your income and expenses, add your location, get summary of your account and sort your finance just the way you want. Also, this app supports more than one currency, making it useful for those who deal with foreign transactions.
7. Toshl Finance:
This fun-sounding app features some interesting characters, who encourage you to manage your expenses and savings wisely. Also, the app focuses on budgeting and allows you to organize, tag and add your expenses and shows your progress. However, it may not be your cup of tea if you want a plain, no-nonsense app that sticks to managing your personal finance. Hence, it is advisable that you try out the free version before going for the Pro.
This app helps you manage your loans in addition to organizing your finances. Use it to closely monitor all your existing loans by adding the exact details of your loan, interest rates, installment dates et al. Also, the app allows you to convert currencies and organize your transactions when you are on foreign soil. Quite handy, isn’t it?
9. Nickel Tracker:
This app is basically for home finance management. So, if you are a home maker or if you are the one who has to run the househols, install this app on your phone. The app allows you set limits on your weekly and monthly expenses and will warn or alert you when you are about to approach or overstep this limit. Easy but effective.
As the name suggests, Expensify helps you to check your expenses and manage them. One of the features, which I want to highlight here, is the synchronization of this app with your debit and credit cards. This helps in keeping track of all your real-time transactions and generates a PDF file of all the transactions made, helping you know your financial status at one glance.
These are some of the top ten Android finance apps that I have brought forth. However, since everyone has different financial aspects, not all these apps will work for you. So, in my opinion, try and test some of these apps and find out which one suits your requirements and then use it to manage your personal finance. All the best!
