Pocketbook is an easy to use, yet sophisticated budgeting app made by Australians, for Australians. The app launched earlier this year on iOS, and has now made its way to Android.
The service aggregates your bank accounts, credit cards, loans and bills. It provides a single view of your spending and automatically syncs all of your bank transactions into a single easy-to-read page.
Pocketbook’s main goal is to simplify your personal finances. It allows you to:
- See your financial transactions in the one place
- Stay on top of your bills
- Minimise bank fees and late payment penalties
- Keep you on track of your budgets and savings goals
It updates with your spending, and you can manually enter cash transactions – you can also add photos of receipts or warranty information to link with what you’ve bought. Bills that are set automatically with your bank are detected and categorised – Pocketbook will notify you when a bill is coming up and let you know if you have enough cash to cover it.
Pocketbook is compatible with almost all of Australia’s financial institutions, including:
- Commonwealth Bank
- St George
- ING Direct
You can also link with an online budget planner to help you achieve your financial goals.
Pocketbook is a free app, and is available now from Google Play.
