Apps to Help You Manage Your Money

If you’re like most smart-device users, you love your gadget with a capital L. So why not hire your device to be your very own financial planner at a cost of next to nothing?

Here are a few money-management apps for your smart device that stand out from the rest:

Mint.com

With features that allow users to access their financial data from multiple sources, it’s no wonder users rave about it in reviews. More important, this free app comes with an extra layer of device-level security, meaning that users must enter a passcode to access their account information. Better yet, if your device is lost or stolen, you can disable its access to your account from the Mint.com Web site.

Bloomberg Mobile

Companies pay big money to have a Bloomberg data terminal on site (right around $1,500 a month), so why not take advantage of this free app? It shows up-to-the-minute news, stock quotes, company descriptions, and price chart and market trend analysis.

Tipulator

Admit it, at the end of a scrumptious meal the last thing you feel like doing is figuring out how much to tip your server—even if the math is elementary. So for $1.99, you can buy an app to do it for you.

BillMinder

Use this app to remind yourself when each of your bills is due. This is especially useful if you’re just starting out in the “real world” and remembering to pay bills is something new to you. The regular version costs 99 cents, but the lite version is free.

iXpenseIt

At $4.99 (the lite version is free), this app lets you track and control multiple budgets and stores pictures of all your receipts. It shows you trends on where you’re spending your money, which makes it easier for you to trim the fat from your expenses. If it seems like your paychecks are constantly disappearing, this app is for you.

And, remember, if you need help developing a spending plan before using money-management apps, HUECU is here to help. Call us at (617) 495-4460 or stop by today.
