Splash Money is easy to use personal finance software for your iPhone. It supports checking, savings, credit card, cash and other accounts. It downloads transactions directly on your device via WiFi, Reconciles accounts on your PDA or Smartphone, has solid budget and account reporting features. Phew! So many features make this app an almost certain in our search for the best app but there are a few things that we did not like about the app, one very important one being the lack of support for Investment accounts which brings it down to number 3.
People with very simple budgets will like Money Strands. While money Strands could use more variety of reports and navigation could improve, the new Cash account, support for multiple currencies and data export features, tips it past the others that were there in the queue for our list of top five money managing app for the iPhone. Another interesting feature is that money strands imports data after it’s downloaded to your computer, and transactions can also be entered manually.
