As the Notorious B.I.G. said “Mo money, mo problems.” Making money is great, but if you’re not managing it well, those hard-earned bucks can get you into trouble.
But don’t worry, there’s an app for that. Whether you want to save for a big vacation or just want to remember to pay your bills on time, these apps can help you easily organize your finances through your phone.

This app, and their online website, tracks everything from your bank accounts to your credit card statements so you can see where all of your money is. You can create a budget and see how much you can put into savings if you cut back in one category, like your fund for your daily Starbucks. Plus, the app sends you personalized tips to show how you can save money.
Pocket Expense Personal Finance: Account Tracker, Budget Planner & Bills
Once you’ve created a personal budget with this app, it alerts you when you’re close to going over budget. You can even move money between different categories to keep you on track.
