As an Android user I am still pretty frustrated that there are so many more and better apps for the iPhone than for Android phones. Hopefully more developers will get going for Android, but it is what it is, so we should just all get over it – right?
Anyway, John recently wrote about 5 personal finance iPhone apps that he enjoyed, and I decided to put together a post with some budgeting and financial apps for Android. To be honest, I don’t actually use any budgeting apps on my phone. I use Mvelopes for my budgeting and as far as I can tell they don’t have a budgeting app for Android (or the iPhone) – not really sure what they are thinking. But regardless, that would probably be the only budgeting program that I would use on my phone. Since do all my budgeting with Mvelopes, it would probably end up wasting more of my time if I used a separate tool on my phone – that wasn’t from Mvelopes.
So, this isn’t really a review of all these budgeting programs, it is more of a list. Hopefully you (the wonderfully helpful reader) can provide your two cents in the comments as to what budgeting or personal finance apps you use on your Android device.
As you will notice, there are a lot of Android budgeting apps, I am sure some are great and some not-so-great. I would have linked to each of these programs’ websites, but many of them don’t have them or don’t have much (or any) information about them on their homepage. So, I would probably just go the Android Market on your phone and search for the name of the program to get a better feel of the app’s features.
How the apps are listed
I listed the apps in order of their rating in the Android Market along with the current prices. While the ratings might be an indication of quality, if an app only has one review that happens to be 5 stars from the developers mom, it might not be as reliable as an app that has a 4 star rating with 25 reviews. I also provided screenshots when they were available.
Hope it helps!
