App hunting can be quite tedious due to the large amount available online. This article will review a few finance apps that stand out. And best of all, they’re free to use on your smartphone!
With iTrade, learning about the stock market doesn’t require that you risk your capital. This application allows you to manage a virtual portfolio and research stocks with both historical graphs and the latest news about trades. While iTrade is more or less a video-game because it does not allow you to manage actual currency, it looks, feels, and behaves much like a real trading platform. For example, iTrade only operates during actual market trading hours, and even requires that you pay pretend brokerage fees for transactions. In short, practicing on iTrade is one of the best ways to prepare for the real market without facing the real risks of doing so.
Real-Time Stocks App
If you’re past the learning stage of market trading, Real-Time Stocks offers one of the easiest yet most powerful trading applications anywhere. This application includes real time quotes, details trading charts (for most stocks), and allows you to keep an eye on several different properties at once. Of course trading apps are all about convenience, and that’s why Real-Time Stocks allows you to create a “favorite” list of stocks you would like to keep an eye on as well as enter stocks for exchanges outside of the US. No matter if you’re a first time trader or an experienced guru, Real-Time Stocks can give you the power to keep an eye a close eye on the market from anywhere.
While applications that automatically update your account balances have an obvious appeal, manually entering purchases you’ve made is ideal for maintaining a sense of responsibility about your purchases. That’s why Balance is one of the most popular finance applications available today. Anytime that you purchase, deposit, pay a bill, etc., you can use Balance to enter the transaction that just took place and it will automatically update your new account balance. In many regards, it is a digital checkbook that allows you to keep track of all your finances in one place. Of course this might be tedious if you had many bills to account for, which is why Balance goes the extra mile by allowing support for periodic transactions, like rent, and enters those for you.
Mortgage Calculator App
While there’s no shortage of mortgage calculator applications online, this app stands out for its ease of use. Not only does Mortgage Calculator provide the concrete tools necessary to make forecasts about your current mortgages, it also allow you to make forecasts about potential mortgages and recurring fees. The app is so powerful and well thought out that it can even include considerations of home and mortgage insurance, as well as appropriately calculate taxes based on your region.
Anyone who has to create expense reports know how tedious it can be as well as how a lack of organization can turn a thirty minute report into a two hour job. That’s why this app helps you to sync data from all of your various accounts in order to help you track your business purchases. Expensify collects digital receipts, sorts expenses by categories, and helps you to compile all this information for delivery in a simple to read PDF file.
