The 10 top personal finance apps
Most of us these days have a shiny/busted up (depending on your level of care) smartphone, and as we all know Apple, Windows and Android phones all have downloadable apps. While most of you will have downloaded Facebook/Twitter/Angry Birds/Oldify or the amazing Temple Run, you may not have thought about downloading apps to help you with your personal finance. There are plenty of great apps that can help you to keep organised and productive. Here are a few that may help you on your way through the deep dark caverns of personal finance.
PayPal is something we have all heard of and most of us probably use regularly. It wasn’t until recently that I actually installed this app though as I used to use the web page instead. Boy am I glad I got it. Soooo much easier to buy my eBay related clobber! (frugality fail there somewhere) It of course a free app available for both the iPhone and Android devices. If you do business online or get paid through PayPal, this app is a must. You can easily send or request money and check your balance anytime.
