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).

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…)

Isn’t it funny how money, while being such an important part of our lives, often goes overlooked when it comes to digital solutions to managing it or tracking it? Sure there are options out there, but I know I never really took any of them seriously. In a lot of ways, I was prone to simply flying by the seat of my pants, hoping and praying that the numbers all balance out at the end of the month and that I didn’t owe anyone money I didn’t have.
Wouldn’t it be nicer though if you had a comprehensive record of incoming funds and outgoing expenses? Something that could give you an at-a-glance understanding of where your money was, where it came from and where it went?

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.
Freelancers the world over generally have to invoice their clients before they get paid. An invoice is a legal description of goods and services provided with indication of payment methods and terms.

There’s a small community of finance apps on the App Store focused at freelancers, and Invoice Robot is certainly not the only one aimed at invoicing. A companion to the popular FreshBooks service is MiniBooks, which we’ve already reviewed here at AppStorm, is one alternative, as is long time AppStorm-sponsor Billings Touch.
Invoice Robot is a mobile invoicing solution, available as a universal binary on iPhone and iPad. Today, we’ll be taking a look at it to see whether or not it’s worth a download.
