I have an IPod Touch. My fiance has an IPhone. It would be an understatement to say that I’m jealous. Love is kind, right? What’s the best thing about my IPod Touch? The apps!
I thought I would give you a couple of apps to check out if you’re looking to help your finances. Keep in mind that if you read this today, tomorrow Apple may have released 5 more financial apps that are even better than the apps below so make sure you do some research on your own as well. Let’s face it, going through those lists of apps on your phone or IPod is fun.
GasBuddy- The name says it all. It uses GPS to triangulate your position and tell you where the cheapest gas can be found. I’m not sure that the 2 or 3 cents per gallon difference that I see in my area is worth the drive but for some, this is well worth it.
Ifare Finder- I don’t travel much. I like flying but I don’t like small spaces with a lot of people, most of which are in bad moods. Airline costs can change quickly so this is worth it, for sure. Check it out!
IExpenseit- We all love being on a budget and now you can turn your IPhone or IPod in to Big Brother and track all of your expenses to keep that budget up to date. An app. That you will love to hate.
Portfolio Live- Depending on when you are reading this, you may want to forget about your portfolio for a while but if you are looking to track it while on the go, this app is for you. Easy to read, easy to understand. I recommend it highly!
These are four of my favorites but there are many, many more. Tip calculators, currency converters, bill trackers, mortgage calculators, and much more. Don’t let your IPod Touch simply be an MP3 player. There are much less expensive options out there if you are looking for a music player. There are much less expensive phones if you are merely looking for a way to communicate.
Harness the full slate of features with your Apple device. Take a look at the apps.
