What free apps are there to help me keep track of my budget?
Keeping track of your spending is important while you plan your travel, but also while you are on the road. A budgeting app may be just what you need.
There are so many budgeting apps to choose from these days, so we have decided to put together a list of the better budget apps out there.
Wally: Best for tracking expenses
This app helps you track your income, expenses and offers you a snapshot of your remaining budget to help you avoid overspending. It is free to use, supports all currencies, and has both an iPhone and Android version (the Android version is called Wally+).
Instead of manually logging your expenses, Wally lets you simply take a photo of your receipts. And if you use geo-location on your device, it even fills in that info, saving you several steps.
PocketGuard: Best to Keep from Overspending
PocketGuard can help guard you against spending too much. This budgeting app links to all of your financial accounts and helps you track your spending compared to your budget throughout the month.
This app is one of the easier to setup and connect to your bank accounts, and tracks your monthly income, bills, expenses and savings as you go.
Venmo: Best payment app for splitting the cost of a pizza with friends
