AppTV Finance Apps Part 1

pAppTV: Finance Apps Part 1p pbrought to you by Telus hello Im Mike Haggar bow and Im Mary armitage and welcome to appe TV a look at all things applicable to the app world its been said that money makes the world go round and while that may be true it doesnt make managing your money any easier just ask Mike thanks but hopefully the list of financial apps we have lined up well first off we have the iphones built in stock app which does exactly what you think it would and even more type in the name of the company or stock ID you want to find out about and the info will be displayed or you can also search by stock price percentage or market cap so the history of the company youre looking at investing in is equally important just thats Warren Buffett so true so before you buy or sell view a graph of past prices ranging from yesterday to two years ago you can also view articles on the company which gives you a heads up if theyre in the headlines for the right reasons and although this app may make trading on the go a little easier for you we do have to stress that the stock market can be a little like gambling so make sure you know what youre investing in before you buy in and remember buy low sell high thats my financial advice for today alright so when youre done training you may want to take a look at our next appt it wont make you any money but it might help you keep a little what you already have money management is an essential skill but unless you work for Enron keeping tabs on your household budget can be as complex as keeping track of a small business a good way to see whats coming in versus whats going out is the whole budget out its available for the iPhone and iPad and it makes monthly bills a little easier to manage the layout of the app is fairly straightforward which is exactly what you want in a budgeting app you can track your income expenses different bills and due dates as well as a balance in your account these features are integrated so when you pay a bill it moves from the due date to the expense section and the amount is deducted from your balance nice and easy to start lay out your income information and create a base from which youll keep track of everything once youre set up move to the payee tab this is where your reoccurring bills are entered you can also enter your account info if you want but remember thats pretty sensitive information so some people may choose not to do this but a cool feature of the app is the ability to password protect your info so if your phone does get lost your information will stay safe you can view all your upcoming bills in a built in monthly calendar feature which is great for seeing when those payments need to be made then just fill in the rest of your budget information like expenses bank fees and mortgage payments if you keep the info current you can start to set up budget goals and break down your expenses even further to look for ways to save once youve been using the app for a while youll find the report section particularly interesting this will show you Trenton your spending and expenses and even project where you could be financially in the next coming months you can view your progress in a graph form or pie chart which gives you a quick at a glance reference for your cash if more than one person your home has the app you can use the sync feature this allows you to pair multiple devices and consolidate budgets to give you a picture of the entire household and everyone in it the free version of the app gives you ten expense entries and five income entries to help you get familiar with all the features after that the full version cost 499 whole budget records and saves your past data giving you a projection of your future cash flow so now tax

phone to take actual photos of a check both the front and the back and you can deposit it into your account all using your phone thats beyond cool keep track of all the transactions inside of the app but dont forget about the service charges from paypal because rarely its money moved around for free so weve dealt with the cash and all the business connections but what you do with all those
