There are a ton of personal finance apps out there today. The list keeps growing and growing – almost at an alarming rate. I get asked to review apps almost daily from new startups, it’s actually kind of scary. I mean, honestly, how many apps do we need?
Today, I wanted to ask you what are some of your favorite personal finance apps?
These can be apps for your phone, online apps that you use regularly, or anything tech-related for personal finance. This is pretty broad, but that’s okay! Maybe we can all discover new, helpful apps.
What I’m Using Right Now
Here’s some of my favorite personal finance apps to get us started:
- Personal Capital – I love using Personal Capital to keep financially organized. Their dashboard that let’s you connect all your accounts is great, and their portfolio tools work well. I wish there was a little more to their investing tracking and management, but it’s the best cloud-based online money management program I’ve found.
- Quickbooks Online – I have to manage the business finances, and Quickbooks online is great. I love being able to access my accounts from anywhere, and Quickbooks Online allows just that.
- Trov – One of the features that I liked from Quicken was having a home inventory. But since I’ve pretty much stopped using Quicken and have switched to cloud based services, keeping track of a home inventory is hard. Why bother? Well, insurance is a big one. I live in a wildfire area and things like that do worry me – so I like to be prepared. Anyway, Trov let’s you create a home inventory and take pictures in the app. It even tracks values for you. Pretty neat.
- FeeX – I recently wrote about how FeeX helped me save a lot of money in investing expenses. With this nifty app, you connect your online brokerage accounts and it analyzes your investments on fees and performance. If it finds a better fund that matches your current investment, it tells you. Huge money saver here!
