Money Manager Expense & Budget

Once you’ve added your banking details and personal details, navigating this app is a walk in the park. It’s user-friendly and even allows you to take pictures of slips and receipts to add to your expenses. Money Manager Expense & Budget is a great tool to help you budget weekly or monthly as it gives you a breakdown of where you’re spending money and if you’re spending more than you should be, based on your salary.

Wallet–Money, Budget, Finance Tracker, Bank Sync

As the name suggests, this app takes care of everything that happens within your wallet - money coming in or out. This app doesn’t require you to keep your slips or even a notepad where your budget is broken down. It does it all for you and updates you on where to tweak, ensuring flexibility.


This is a great tool for those who dislike queues or debit orders because you can’t keep up with what you have to pay and where. Walletdoc makes it easy to pay your bills. All the information needed for your expenses is there, removing the strain of remembering passwords or reference numbers. It’s a great one-stop app for any payments and invoices you may have.

Home Budget Manager

The great thing about this app is its simplicity, minimal admin is required and no registration aspect for signing up. It also is Dropbox-linked, so you can share and save any receipts or slips you may have. It can be synced with various devices so if you have your iPad or note, you can still see what happens with your bank transactions. Bonus? It has payment reminders that’ll ensure you don’t miss any account payments.

Monefy- Money Manager

You can track your spending from anywhere in the world with this app, as it has a multi-currency function. So if you’re on holiday, it will switch to the currency of that country. You can also synchronise all your bank accounts and spending. With this app, you’re able to track spending on various accounts, so you and your partner can see where each person (or both) need to cut down.
