Since I have been migrating to Australia, tracking my expenses is now very crucial due to my income is longer that luxury that it used to be. So, I have started to search for the best and free expense manager in Android and I found this HandWallet is pretty awesome.
Few things I like about HandWallet as compared to the rest of the expense managers that I have tried:
- You can track income, not just expense. Some expense manager applications out there only allow you to track expenses.
- You can track by account (e.g. your saving account, your check account, and your cash). For instant, if you put in your expenses, you can choose which account to use. At the end of the day, you can check the account balance in your mobile verses the actual balance in your bank.
- You can customize expenses categories. You can hide those are not needed and add your own category. This is extremely useful. To customize, go to Data Tab -> Categories. Play around with hide and add (new) options and you will know how to use it.
- You can also view by graphic representative what is your expenses vs your income. You can also go into each category and look at the breakdown. It is up to you how deep you want to track (e.g. how many subcategories that you want to create).
I have been using this for few weeks and I find it pretty cool and useful. Cross-checking with my actual cash (in my wallet basically) and actual balance in my bank is extremely useful. You will be surprised that you will always miss some of your expenses tracking especially you're not getting used of tracking your expenses!
