  1. The first favourite app we would like to share with you is Mint from Mint.com which is free for Canada and the U.S. only at this time. This app is available for iOS and Android which offers you an in-depth look at your balances which is constantly updated as long as you are connected to the internet. This app categorizes your transactions and lets you know when you are about to go over your budget that you have manually set for yourself. With Mint, you are also able to program in that the app will notify you when your bills are due. With the speed and reliability of this app, you really can’t go wrong, and it is extremely user-friendly which makes it very appealing to those who are trying to track their accounts on the go. Coupled with the web-based app Mint.com which adds more functionality, also, the app includes the ability to move money between accounts and much more!
  2. The second app we would like to share with you is called BillGuard which helps you go over your credit card statements in depth and lets you report any purchases that are questionable or unwanted. Available for the Android and the iPhone, this free app has a great security feature and shows you merchants that frequently charge customers for their products or services without the client knowing or purchases that were never requested in the first place. As some of us are the target of gray charges, this app clears up all the questionable charges and provides solutions to this problem that some people have. This app does what it says it’s going to do, and also does it very well.
  3. The third app that we are sharing with you is called Check which is available for Android, iPhone, Windows phone, the web and is free! This app Check which was formerly known as Pageonce is a great app that helps you stay on top of your bills and also make your payments directly from the app. The mobile payment features that are offered through this app include major service providers as well as small businesses and individual businesses. This app does online bill payments as well, if not better than any other which can help you avoid paying those annoying late fees.
