Pocket Expense, an app to help you keep track of your money, from one of payments to regular expenditures. I have now been using the application or “app” for 7 months, and just though I haven’t talked about it yet. So here we go.
So first of all, why did I get this app, well that is quite simple, I have always used apps to keep track of how much I have, since I got my first iPhone 3GS, and I have only used, long term, two apps in all this time. So why two, well the app I used before was great but was no longer in development, well it is but so slowly that when I got an iPhone 5 the screen resolution was not supported for another year, and the app has started to gain quite a few bugs. So I needed to change to keep the use of it streamlined so that I wouldn’t be wasting effort for no reason.
So this app has one purpose, as most well made apps do. This is to help me organise my income and expenditure. It allows me to create multiple accounts, for example one for my current account, savings account and cash in hand. I could add one for my credit card but money isn’t tight enough for that to be a problem for if money on the card has been charged or not.
The app allows you to set categories for income and expenditure, for example I have categories for transport and under that I have one for buses and taxis. This allows me to see what is costing me what each month a lot easier and with a quick glance.
I can do one of payment, for example when I buy a bus ticket. Or set up re-occurring payments for example Spotify and DeviantART, this saves me having to remember to add a payment for Spotify each month. This increases the accuracy of the amounts in the accounts in the app in comparison to the accounts in real life.
I won’t go into detail about all the other features, and just say it’s a great app, I would recommend it if someone was asking, but can’t say if it’s the best money management app on the IOS store, as I have not tried many others. But over overall a great app.
The app can be found here.
