Spending is much more interesting than budgeting, but Australia is an expensive place to live, particularly if you’re a Sydney-sider.
iSpending can make things quite a bit easier, especially when you’re on-the-go and your folder/notepad of expenses is sitting at home.
The app is straightforward: add your income(s) and expenses, and keep track of what you’re spending, where, and so on.
All incomes/expenses can be named, dated, and labeled. This makes life easier when it comes to searching for something specific.
Categories are also available, so you can see exactly how many hundreds you have spent on food per month.
After that, you can use the ‘report’ tab to view your record history and make comparisons as to where you went wrong (or right). There is also a one month, three month, six month, and 12 month graph view which can be separated into income or expense if you choose.
Now I understand that spending money to make sure you’re saving money is somewhat ironic, but upgrading to iSpending Pro can add a lot of convenience for $2.99. One simple feature makes it all worth it – recurring transactions.
With Pro, you don’t have to sit there at the start of the month and add on your monthly bills and so forth. Let’s face it, we often either don’t have the time to do that, or just forget.
The Pro version is also ad-free.
Pros: Free option available, can add all expenses as your smartphone is always in your pocket/handbag.
Cons: Must upgrade to Pro version for recurring transactions feature.
Verdict: A good way to keep track of where your money is going.
