Recently, I have been using this very neat little app called Simple. Thus far, it has held up to its name. It’s a very easy to use budgeting app for both your computer and phone (or tablet) and is available on both iTunes Store and Google Play.
What makes it so awesome is the type of budgeting it uses called Goals. You can set a goal for anything. Auntie Mae’s birthday, the water bill, Christmas, whatever, then set how much money you need for it and when you need it by. Each day Simple pulls a small amount of money from your account and places it in a savings for that Goal and tells you exactly what is safe to spend day to day in a running total.
It’s also amazingly secure. Locked by a pin number and sign in on your phone and you can even block and unblock your card with a few simple swipes.
The only down side to all of this right now is that their service is in beta. Fortunately, we have 10 invites to give out to this awesome service. If you’re hesitant to switch to a new bank sight unseen, have no fear, you can add external accounts and still enjoy all of the features of Simple.
If you’d like to check it you, let us know in the comments below and we’ll get the first ten an invitation.
This is not in any way shape or form a sponsored post. I genuinely like this thing enough to talk about it.
