      I actually haven't tried ANY of these apps, not even MINT :0 I definitely would like to try out some of the personal finance apps out there, so I might start with your list. Thanks for sharing!

      Great post Siccora.
      All too often I see posts focusing on IOS apps rather than Android.

      I personally user - Expense Manager, it probably isn't the best one out there, but I have too much data in there to change now.

        Thanks Glen! I know what you mean about IOS. We're an Android house with a bit of Windows so that is all I will focus on, but most apps are developed to work on multiple platforms anyways.

        And you make a good point. Once you have everything setup on a certain app it may be a bit of work if you want to switch to a different one.

      Good write up Sicorra! I've not heard of all of these, so I learned something new today. :) We really do not use any apps to manage our finances, other than maybe a coupon one to save some money around town.

        Thanks John! I'm actually surprised to hear that you don't use any. :-)

      I really need to start using my phone better. I rarely use any apps and usually limit myself to the internet.
      I especially like the debt snowball idea. Anything to visualize my goal.

      Thanks for sharing details about these apps, Sicorra. I really don't like doing finance stuff on my phone for fear a hacker can access and steal my stuff, but now that I know about these apps, I might feel a little more at ease and willing to access my bank account when I need to instead of waiting until I get home :)

      Ah, if I only had a smartphone. I suppose you could use these on a tablet as well. That is the more likely purchase in my near future.

      Very interesting write up. Personally, I do no town a smartphone. Still using an old-school slider and I forget it on my desk 90 percent of the time. Still stuck in the Stone Age of pencil and paper.
