I'm looking for an easy to use app for budgeting and tracking my spending. Sugestions?
Get married ... Oh, wait, you wanted to continue spending?
You might try one of these.
Budget Tracker - Android app on AppBrain
Family budget - Android app on AppBrain
I'm a huge fan of Mint. I'd been using it for a couple of years online and was thrilled to see they had an app.
Mint.com Personal Finance - Android app on AppBrain
I've been using Hello Expense for a couple of weeks now. Very easy and very organized, it's a keeper for me. Plus, it requires no permissions, 100% ad free.
I am using EasyMoney. If you are looking for tracking and budgeting, this app does what you need. You can also view reports such as monthly cash flow, daily balance, expense by category etc. Another point, you can key in your bills and the app can send you reminders to notify you when the due date is near.
You can check out the video they made here:
YouTube - EasyMoney - Budgeting & Expense Tracking Android App
Nothing did exactly what I wanted so I wrote one; Super Easy Budget on the android market. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.beachb.supereasybudget&feature=search_result
i have tried a few apps and easy money is the best app in my opinion.
I was looking for something similar to Back in Black for iOS...sigh this is as close as it gets for now.
Same thing here, I've been looking for a good fast and simple one for a while that would not break the budget (that's the point right). So I wrote my own with a friend. It is really simple, fast and customizable. Perfect to track multiple budgets on multiple accounts. Check it out : http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hagdroid.droidMoney
Will easy money sync with quicken or is there a pc version of easy money?
How safe and secure are these apps? I have never looked into them but have wanted something similar.
I personally use SlyMoney
I like it because it's simple and quick to use, and gives you a prediction of what your budget is going to do based on your spending trends which is quite nice.
This has always been my concern with these types of apps. Whatever you do just never NEVER enter any of your bank or credit card info into anything.
100% agree. I vetted Mint.com for weeks before finally deciding to go ahead and use their services. Then the app didn't work for me anyway so I breathed a huge sigh of relief and walked away from it without being the least bit hurt by it.
Same here. When I was looking to going digital with our check registries, I saw a lot of apps that required internet access and access to our bank acct.'s. (Which is not what I wanted.) I came across Moneywise Pro and have been using it ever since. Once I got it set up the way I wanted, I have been very happy with it. Its really easy to use and totally customizable to your needs. The back up and restore feature works well too. (I had to reset my phone.) I print out a monthly transaction report every month for one of our accts. in HTML format as well as have a digital back up. Its very clean and color coded. Also, you can see your balance in two places, balance tab and list tab.
Yep, been using this for a while. It's a good app. In addition to everything said up there, you can also take pics of your receipts and match them with your registry.
Thanks for the tips and the link. Will check it out this evening.
