  1. I just like the valuable info you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check once more here regularly. I am rather sure I’ll be informed many new stuff right right here! Best of luck for the following!

  2. I just want to tell you that I am newbie to weblog and definitely loved your web site. Almost certainly I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You definitely have good article content. Many thanks for sharing with us your website page.

  3. Excellent post at About | frugalcommunity. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  4. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.

  5. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Terrific blog and fantastic style and design.

  6. I\’ve been using Mint for about 8 months. Absolutely love it. By far the best app for money tracking I\’ve ever used, and I\’ve used programs on both the old Palm OS and BlackBerry OS. I live in Canada so not all financial institutions are supported but the list is expanding. It\’s free but I would be happy to pay $10 for this app.

  7. I downloaded and started using Mint over the weekend. I absolutely love it. First, I no longer have to my banks\’ website for my transaction and balance. Second, I\’m able to also link (and sync) all my student loans along with car loan onto the app! Third, I love the pie chart breakdown of my expenditures. Who knew I ate out so much?! Apparently, Mint does

  8. I like Mjnt as well. The only drawback to their mobile app is that you cannot enter new transactions from the app. That is the only drawback that I have seen. Add this feature and I\’d say it goes from a 4.5 to a 5 for me.

  9. any way for mint to \”learn\” where you\’d like to categorize a transaction? Currently, I have to load up the app, wait, see my money go down, then search through the categories until i find the one with a transaction in the wrong spot, then re-categorize it… my OTHER budget app only requires i input each transaction and price manually, at least i don\’t have to go digging first :/ any tips? the app seems to have very limited settings from what I see.Thanks in advance!

  10. For keeping track of my expenses, I\’ve been using iXpenseIt for about 3 years now (first on my iPhone 3G and now on my iPhone 4), and I\’m extremely satisfied with it. As someone else also stated, they make frequent updates/improvements, which is always a good thing. I highly recommend it!

  11. Pageonce Pro has: the ability to track investment portfolios, ad free, view detailed bill and account info, track frequent flyer miles and rewards, track mobile minutes, texts and data usage, add unlimited number of accounts, refresh all accounts at once, ability to manually create bills i.e. rent due on the first.

  12. We use Mint for our personal finances but the app we go to the most is iAllowance for keeping track of all the finances and chores for our kids. This is a segment of the family finance market that doesn\’t get much attention but it\’s a must have for parents.
