Do you have to track expenses for work purposes so you’re not out-of-pocket at the end of the month? While many people can get by with a pen and paper, or a digital note-taking alternative, dedicated apps for such a task do exist. These apps allow you to save time and do a whole lot more with your data, and won’t end up clogging up your desk or other notes with long lists of micro-transactions. One such app that’s free to use is Cents for iPhone which refers to itself the “micro-expense tracking” app.
For free you can track 15 separate expenses per month, and that number is doubled when you share or rate the app in the App Store. The app uses a clean and attractive interface to record and display your expenditure, and can be adjusted to the currency of your choice.
One of the more useful features in Cents is the ability to record regular expenses using customisable buttons or use the one-time expense button to record an expense you’ve not saved.
Another benefit to recording such data within an app is the ability to present your expenditure in month or week views, and track your overall expenditures using statistics that continue to accrue the longer you use it.
Once you’ve exhausted the 30 monthly expenses available for free you can buy a $1.99 in-app purchase that allows for unlimited expense tracking. Cents is free to download from the App Store and has been optimized for the iPhone 5.
