“A lot of people use different finance apps. Lots of apps. But what do they all have in common? They all try to be the best at one thing. And that’s the thing that matters most to you.
So, we’ll give you the best apps for finance on Android to help you get the most out of your money.
The app we recommend is Mint, which is an app that helps you manage your personal finance and keep track of your spending and income.”
It is not just an app, it is a method for living a more balanced life. As we get older, we start to accumulate a financial burden that we can no longer ignore and must make payments on.
Luckily, there are plenty of good options out there. One way to reduce stress and inconvenience is by setting up your budget each month — and when you do this, it will be easier to plan for retirement or other financial goals. In this post I’ll highlight some of the best personal finance apps available for Android, as well as some of the things you should keep in mind when using them.
As always, we will start with the best-of-the-best:
◆ Apple’s iBank
A full-blown bank account app – It has all the features you need: checking account, deposit accounts, savings accounts or investment accounts (that can be split into mutual funds), credit cards (up to $20k per month), investments including stocks and bonds. There’s even a calculator so you can figure out how much money you should contribute each month to your savings account. Users can also use the app to send money outside of the US (in theory). You will have to pay a fee if you want to do both at once: $19/month for checking and $9/month for investing. It also has a purchase history feature that allows users to see what balance they were spending money on at any given time over their lifetime which might be useful if you are trying to estimate how much money you need saved every year for retirement purposes.
◆ Mint (for Android)
Mint is another full-blown financial app with all the features Apple offers: checking accounts, investments such as stocks & bonds, and more — along with its own unique finder function that lets users search bank branches across the country that match their location preferences.
If you are looking for an app specifically designed for people who have jobs outside of finance or work in finance but aren’t comfortable taking regular payments via payroll check or direct deposit then Mint might be just what you need!
Contributions can be made via PayPal too — just keep in mind it may take longer than usual before your payment clears – 2 weeks as opposed to 1 day — so plan accordingly!
You can also set up automatic payments from your bank account and when your paycheck arrives by email so it isn’t too difficult! And if this isn’t enough
Stock calculators and other services
Investment tools are quite out of fashion at the moment and we’d like to highlight that we think are particularly useful. They can be useful for many different types of people and businesses and cover a wide range of topics, from managing the family budget to finding the best personal loans.
Keep in mind that these apps don’t necessarily search engines; they have no intention to replace your portfolio management or financial planning routine with a stock ticker or stock market analysis app.
Instead, they are designed to help you keep track of your expenses, cash flow, and capital requirements better than any other tool you currently use. They will also help you manage your investments more efficiently (with better analysis).

The Stock Market Calculator
I’m sure you’ve heard about this one a while back but I noticed that there hasn’t been a recent update on this app’s Google Play Store page since June 2015 (and is no longer supported by the developer).
While I haven’t checked for updates lately, I just wanted to bring this personal finance tool back as an example since there are so many other good ones out there already! Besides being one of my favorite apps personally, this is one that I use every day because it’s both free and very useful: it can do everything from tracking assets and liabilities to researching stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
How to use the free software and apps
Even if you are not into finance, it is difficult not to be impressed by the number of great Android apps that are available for free. There are many different categories and subcategories of finance apps available, from simple ones that do only a few things to complex ones that can perform real-time calculations.
For those who know me, I am well versed in Android and have been using it since day one (I even have my own machine running on an Asus Transformer). The reason I picked these particular categories is that they represent some of the most popular categories and give me a good idea of what people want when they look for financial apps.
I’ll also mention some little-known apps here (like the free version of Market) that don’t quite fit into any category above but which I find very interesting nonetheless.
If you have ever worked with a personal manager before, you probably will have been in a situation where the company is paying your salary, but they are not paying the rest of what you are owed. For example, say you owe $3k and your company wants to reduce your salary from $7550 to $6500.
You can find yourself sitting at home with a phone in your hand that has very little use, wondering how long it will be before you get the money. What if I told you there was an app out there that could help?
Many people don’t know that there are thousands of apps that allow you to manage your finances in your own time and on your own terms? Whether you’re a student or someone who just lives paycheck to paycheck, there is an app out there for every need and interest. If this sounds like magic, then welcome to the world of personal finance management; apps like Mint, Personal Capital, or even Quicken can make managing personal finances a bit easier.
