Of all the great things that the iPhone lets me do, I’d put tracking my finances near the top of list. While, it may seem boring, it’s something I always struggled with in the past; so much so that I constantly overdrafted my account and had to pay hundreds of dollars in fees. Since I purchased my first iPhone I’ve used Checkbook to balance my accounts, and have become a lot better at keeping track of my financials.

While Checkbook has been good to me over the years, I’ve always kept a lookout for similar apps. To me, Checkbook had a lot of great functionality, but wasn’t a great looking app (it’s not poorly designed, but is a bit plain). Being someone that’s very into design, I always hoped to find an alternative that offered the functionality of Checkbook, while providing a design that made that app a joy to use. With the release of Bankr Personal Finance (referred to as “Bankr” from this point forward), I’m happy to say that I believe my search may finally be over. Find out why after the jump. (more…)

There was a time back in primary school when my class had a math lesson that involved sticking to a budget as we went around the classroom ‘buying’ things with money that distinctively resembled Disney Dollars. That was the first and last time that I can remember finding the task of sticking to a budget and tracking expenses as being fun. That was until I came across the app, Toshl.

A few taps in the Toshl app and all will become clear, complete with a few nifty graphs thrown in for good measure. Whether you want to keep track of all your expenses or just a one off budget, such as your Christmas shopping, Toshl can be a real life (and hair) saver. Let’s take a look at Toshl’s main features, functionality and performance.
