If you don’t own an Android based cell phone, I would advise that you heavily consider getting one. The monthly prices really aren’t that bad and you’re going to be amazed at what this phone can do for you. It’s basically your desktop all in the palm of your hand.
Now, a lot of us either have trouble with our finances, or maybe you just want some tools that are going to help you manage your finances. What you will soon find out with the Android is that the Marketplace is jammed packed with great financial applications.
Listed below are 8 applications that I think that you should download today…
#1 Loot: This application is going to allow you to track all of your spending in a simple application. The only downfall is that you’re going to have to update your transaction every time you make a purchase. This is a great way to manage your balance, as well as look at what you’re spending day by day.
#2 Mint: Mint is a fantastic website online that tracks all of your payments instantly. You’re going to tie your account in with your bank account. It’s safe, secure, and a great way to see where your money goes on a daily basis.
#3 ShopSavvy: I love this application because I’m able to compare prices right in the store or at home. Let’s say that you want to purchase a specific TV brand. You can compare prices both online, as well as in your local stores. It’s a great way to save money.
#4 Google Finance: If you hold any type of stock or mutual fund, the Google Finance app is a great way to track its activity. You can track the news, the current price, and more all in the palm of your hand.
#5 Personal Budget Droid: If you can stick to a budget, you’re probably going to want to get this app. You can post all the spending that you do, as well as tell it how much you want to spend in each category. It’s a great way to stay under budget.
The best thing about all of these applications is that you’re not going to have to pay a penny. While the Android Market continues to grow, many are switching to the iPhone simply based on the fact that it’s open source and will have just as much potential in the future.
Be sure to consider these applications the next time you’re picking up your Android, or when you’re thinking about purchasing one.
