Recently, I reviewed DailyCost — one of the best apps I’ve used for keeping track of day-to-day expenses. Today, we’re going to take a look at Spendee, which is marketed as perhaps a slightly more fully-featured finances app. It is designed to take your day-to-day expenses and incomes, plus your recurring expenses and incomes (such as bills and wages), and turns that data into charts, graphs and even has a social media-esque “feed” where you get given tips on managing your money and even earn achievements.

LearnVest started out in 2010 with the mission of educating and empowering women to take control of their finances. With financial planning tools and online workshops, access to financial planning professionals (for a fee), and a free budgeting tool that rivals anything Mint.com or others have come up with, LearnVest has shown that it’s not playing around. What it’s lacked, though, is an app that puts the tools you find in your browser in your phone.

With a recent site refresh and SEC registration as a financial planner, LearnVest is adding more tools to the financial toolkit, including (finally), their own iOS app. While LearnVest still lets you know right on their mission page that their target demographic is women, everyone can use a little help, and their slick budgeting tool may be enough to make you make the switch.

Managing personal finances is far from the most exciting part of one’s day-to-day life. It’s generally time consuming, requires you to always remember when you spend any amount of money, when you have bills due, when you receive income and the actual result of all the work is often not even worth the hassle. It’s no wonder most people don’t bother.

One thing that a lot of people try to do, is stick to a budget. It’s a lot easier than trying to manage your entire life’s finances, and can be very beneficial if you stick to it. Even so, keeping track of your spending, and having an effective and easy way to get an overview of it, can still be a pain. Enter Spend for iPhone.

When it comes to keeping track of my finances digitally, I feel like I’ve really tried it all. On my Mac, I’ve tried iBank, iFinance, Koku, Money and Moneywell; on my iPhone I’ve tried Expenditure, MoneyBook and Saver, not to mention Mint.com on the web and iPhone. I’ve been pretty displeased with all of them, nothing really seemed to fit with my lifestyle and habits.
