Over the past two years, I have transformed into an online shopper. Not only did I discover that some eBay vendors deliver to Lebanon — where I currently live — but I also came across Borderlinx and their shipping services, and I fell for the excitement of Indiegogo and Kickstarter product backing.
As my habits changed, I tried manually tracking my payments and shipments, but I soon had to give up as it was too much work. I eventually resorted to simply hoping I wasn’t paying a lot instead of using personal finance apps, and relied on good ol’ Google Now to track some of my shipments while manually checking the ones that Now didn’t smartly detect.
But I was recently introduced to Slice, an app which sole purpose is to simplify the life of people like me, who shop online quite frequently. Not only does it keep track of how much I’m spending online and organize my purchases by type and vendor, it also notifies me when any of my purchases is shipping and lets me track its progress. The app also just got updated with a fresh tablet-optimized interface, making it my ultimate shopping companion.
Managing finances is a task that’s often taken for granted. We’d rather play games on our mobile phones than make records of how much we’ve spent for the day. Toshl Finance, a money management app for Android, seems to understand this challenge and offers the easiest possible solution for tracking, planning and overseeing your spending habits. It may be simple and straightforward, but it works.
We all have, at some point, made a compulsive and guilty purchase of a product that we quickly regretted. As long as these spendings are occasional and fit within a well-balanced budget, there is not much to worry about. However, it’s always relevant to keep track of superfluous expenses and have the ability to differentiate them from essential ones.
There are countless applications on the Play Store that let you thoroughly manage your expenses, but many of them either ignore the relevancy of a purchase, or are too complicated to use. Guilt offers a well-balanced solution that lets you record expenses and associate them with a guilt level. At a glance, you see which transactions were unnecessary versus the ones that were essential and didn’t make you feel guilty. The basic concept behind Guilt is KISS – Keep It Stupid Simple, which the uncluttered and very-user friendly interface definitely supports.
