5 Accounting Mobile Apps to Make Your Life a Little Easier


Tags – Accounting Mobile Apps


In this day and age, you should be able to check on your expenses from anywhere.

Specifically, it’s not a case of being able to check your accounts just in front of a computer. But, you should be able to do so through a simple click on your phone.

However, not all apps are created equal and you need to know what options are best for you. Here are our 5 picks for the best mobile apps for accounting.


1. Receipt Catcher

If you are anything like most of us, we hate receipts.

In fact, I question the whole premise of keeping receipts, given that most businesses these days have specified names on our accounting slips. So, there is little use in having to keep each receipt to exactly say what your bank statement is saying too.

However, we still live in a world where you need to keep your receipts for record keeping.

Here, our life is made a little easier with the Receipt Catcher.

As the name suggests, the Recept Catcher can record your receipts in a single place, while not requiring you to manage a rising pile through the accounting year.


2. Zoho Invoice (Free)

Another troubling area for many of us, most businesses require professional invoices before releasing any money for your products and services.

However, instead of having to compile your invoices, sending them manually, and then tracking the payments, how about using an app that can do it all for you?

Through Zoho Invoice, you are able to create your own templates, make the necessary changes for any specific client, and even set them to go out at specific times – all through a single app.

In addition, you can also set Zoho Invoice to send quotes, track projects, accept payments, and even send a thank you note once the payment has been made.


3. Check (Free)

With the increasing complication of your business, it becomes harder to track finances.

One such area is paying bills. And, it is important to track and pay bills on time because paying fines for late payments is never ideal.

Check is an app, which once set, stays on top of your bills, by displaying information on your accounts as well as credit card payments. In addition, you will also get notifications if the credit in your account is insufficient and requires your attention.


4. Financisto (Free)

Financisto is a one-stop app to manage most of your expenses.

From the ability to manage multiple accounts to currencies, and from keeping track of expenses to financial reporting, Financisto allows you to stay on top of the financial health of your business – as simple as that.

Also, given that Financisto is an open source platform, new features are being added on a regular basis in the form of a community project run by volunteers.


5. Google Wallet (Free)

Gone are the days when simply being able to pay with the phone was a revolution.

Now, through NFC technology, you do not even need to open an app to pay. Simply, by turning on your NFC in the top bar settings, your phone will act as a payment card.

In addition, now you have the ability to add multiple cards to your Google Wallet and you do not even need to be connected to the internet to make the payment.
