Money management has always been a daunting task for most folks, not just because it rarely works, but also because of the overwhelming amount of tools, apps and services that are available online. While multi-featured services like Mint or Pocketsmith are great tools that allows for detailed planning of your finances, some of us may want to take a simpler approach.

This is where Toshl stands out and carries out the task just as efficiently as its other weightier counterparts. If you’re looking for a fun, easy way to plan expenses, check this app out.

There’s dozens of text editors and to-do list apps to choose from on the internet, but precious few financial apps that are actually good. Unlike task management and simple to-do lists, tracking financial activities using an app requires more discipline and delivers more consequential results.

As someone who never really had much success with planning how to spend money, I found Pocketsmith to be quite compelling and motivational. Pocketsmith is a money management application that tracks and schedules your finances by plotting them in a calendar. It’s a planner for your wallet, and so much more.

Any time you watch the news, you will find that most of the time, the main topics are related somehow to money. It has been around for centuries, but yet we still can’t seem to figure it out. Money can be a great thing, but yet so destructive as well.

One web app has come out recently that piqued my interest because it looked like it paid attention to the details when it comes to money. Budgetable, which is currently in beta, takes looking at your spending differently than some other apps that do similar functions, like Mint. Instead of just looking at your transactions and categories of spending, you get a more in depth look at your money and how it is affecting your savings.

Being a student, I know that budgeting prudently and knowing exactly how much you’ve got in my accounts is very important. There’s nothing worse than logging on to your online banking and realising that all those “little transactions” you made a few days ago have put a big dent in your balance.

There is a enormous range of personal finance software out there and every single platform, whether it be desktop or mobile, has a mind-boggling array of options. However, I find that many of these programs come with unnecessary features that the average user doesn’t need.

Of course, these features come at a price, and with many personal finance programs you are paying for features that you will never end up using. I, like probably a lot of people, just want a program that shows me what I’m spending my money on.

This is where The Birdy kicks in. It’s a simple, lightweight, web-based personal finance tracker which helps you keep track of your daily spending, showing you exactly where and what you are spending your hard-earned pennies on. The icing on the cake is that The Birdy is completely free, with no signup or subscription fees to pay.

This all sounds brilliant, doesn’t it? Let’s take a closer look at The Birdy and its features.

Do you have a hard time keeping up with where your money is going? It’s hard enough to know how much you have in your checking account, not to mention how much you have it other accounts or owe on loans or credit cards. As tax season rapidly approaches, most of us realize that we need to do a better job at keeping up with our money. Problem is, most programs for managing your finances are expensive and difficult to use.

Managing your finances isn’t a hopeless quest, though. Today we’re going to look at Mint.com, a popular finance management web app that helps you keep up with all of your accounts, budgets, and more. Mint was acquired by Intuit, the company behind Quicken and TurboTax, in 2009, but it’s kept its original simple interface and no-nonsense approach to managing finances while bringing tighter integration with TurboTax. Keep reading to see if Mint is what you need to get your finances under control.
