Money. It makes the world go round, but it is also the cause of so much stress (more money, more problems as the song goes). For people of all ages, it can be a daunting task figuring out a budget. At the end of the day, the most effective way to save your earnings is to religiously keep track of where all your cash is going.
What better way to do that than have a personal tracking system in your own pocket? Matthew Aiken’s offering iCanSpend let’s you know just how much you can still spend so you never have to run out of spending money again.
The concept is simple. Input your earnings and log in each expense as you do. But rather than a pen and paper, it is so much easier to do this on the iPhone. And iCanSpend makes budgeting so much easier—and more fun—than even other applications.
As soon as you enter your earnings and bills that need paying, iCanSpend immediately lets you know how much you have left to splurge. It instantly adjusts every time you make a purchase, so you don’t lag behind your current budget. This application allows you to always stay on top of your spending.
It even makes entering an expense (or an earning) exciting. Voice recognition technology allows you to just say it when you have something you want to log in iCanSpend. Graphics and friendly colors make iCanSpend more fun than other finance applications.
This app is very user-friendly even to those who are inexperienced in money matters. Not only is the application easy to navigate, but it makes budgeting as manageable as it can get. You only have to be dedicated in putting in all your expenses, and iCanSpend does the rest of the work for you.
"All in all, it’s one of the slickest finance apps currently available for the iPhone"
