Must-Have Financial Android Apps
Ever since I purchased my Samsung Galaxy S3, I've found several useful financial apps - this hub will provide some information on those apps.
Your Bank's App
Many major banks offer apps that you can download from Google Play for your Android phone. Functions for these apps vary from one app to the next, but my bank app allows me to do almost anything I can do on their website - I can check my balance, pay bills and transfer funds between accounts. I definitely think it's worth checking to see if your bank has an Android app available.
Mint allows you to sync all your financial accounts, including your bank accounts and credit card accounts, as well as accounts for any loans you might have, and brokerage or 401(k) accounts. This allows you to see how much money you have vs. how much debt you have. In addition, Mint will show you areas you can save money, such as credit cards that have a lower interest rate, or savings accounts that have higher interest rates.
Credit Sesame is a site that keeps track of your credit score, and shows you financial products that you may be eligible for based on your credit score, such as credit cards and loans. It is a very useful tool if you want to keep track of your credit score and see different financial products you might be able to apply for, or ways that you can improve your credit score.
If you use Paypal to send or receive money, or to pay for any purchases, you should definitely download the Paypal Android app. You can do just about anything with the Paypal Android app that you can do on Paypal's website - you can look at your Paypal account and also send or receive payments.
These are the four financial Android apps that I have found most useful. If you know of any other useful financial Android apps, I would love to hear about them!
