I’ve tried various mobile budget management applications even when I didn’t have an iPhone. Unfortunately after installing those budget management applications on my mobile phones, it usually just takes me a day or two of use before I give up and by the third day I stop. Perhaps because of my lack of budget management discipline and patience. Or perhaps the mobile budget applications that I used to have on my mobile phones were not enticing enough to keep me using them. Fortunately, with my new iPhone, some app developers named iOnline Pty Ltd have come up with a pretty good, feature-rich and yet easy to use and manage, budget application app. And it’s simply called Project Budget.
Reading through the list of features laid out by iOnline Pty Ltd for its Project Budget app for the iPhone, I couldn’t help but notice the difference between a free iPhone app and a paid one. For $2.99 Project Budget gives you a slew of features that you won’t generally find in a budget management app. The app does not only track your expenses but also calculates them for you. As soon as you fire up the app, you will be presented with Account Info in which you can enter your details and budget. Moving on to Select Expenses page, where you have to choose different expenses like Electricity, Internet etc by simply tapping on them and putting them into suitable categories. You can also opt to create backup of your data stored in the app through the manual backup option, if you’re finances are important to you.
It’s not very often that we encounter such a feature-rich budget management application on any mobile device. Hence, iPhone users like us, are very fortunate to have this app available for download at the App Store. If we can spend 99 cents for some games which really have no productivity value, then I don’t see a reason why we should not buy this app and install it on our iPhones. You might argue that there are free budgeting-related apps available, but the Project Budget app really hits us with every detail of our budgeting management strategy. Yes, I definitely recommend this application.
