Financial assistant apps
These apps collect, store and report on a multitude of accounts in one place, eliminating the need to log into separate accounts.
They are designed to automatically pull your information from its original source, such as a bank, using your username and password. Some people aren't comfortable with this process for security reasons, but this technology is 10 years old and has proven to be reliable.
Once the data is there, you can categorize it and fine-tune how you want it tracked.
Two of the best apps for tracking multiple accounts come from the same company.
Mint Bills by Intuit
This app, formerly known as Check, aggregates all your accounts in one place, allowing you to conveniently pay your bills and avoid late fees.
- Set reminders to notify you when bills are due.
- Easily pay bills from inside the app with just a few swipes.
- Sync your bank accounts with the app, and it will track your expenses and split your spending into categories.
Mint by Intuit
This application does just what it says: "Track, budget and manage your money on the go."
- The user must be a registered user of the website Mint.com.
- The Mint.com website has a lot more functionality than the iPhone app, but as a quick information update, it works well. Its account update timing is less stable than its competitors, but its functionality and user screens are very impressive and usable.
