From telling you the best spots to eat, to downloading the latest music, Apple’s iPhone has a whole mess of applications available.
While a lot of these may be centered on entertainment or just getting around, there are others that could help you navigate the world of personal finance. Recently, Bankrate.com highlighted some of the apps that can help you keep your money in line.
For example, there’s DebtTracker Pro, which was created by SnapTap. Through it, you can enter your loan information and calculate how long it would take you to get out of debt.
“This app is not a calculator; the user must put in all the payment information necessary to make the app useful,” Bankrate said.
Another potentially useful app is Flixoft’s Grocery Gadget, which can help keep track of how much you spend on food and set up shopping lists. There’s also the MoneyPass ATM Locator, which can help avoid pesky cash-machine fees while out on the town.
There are less-expensive options for trying to keep on top of personal finances. Setting up a home budget is as easy as grabbing a pen and calculator. Of course, doing so requires one thing technology may steal from you – motivation.
