The Go To App for keeping track of personal finances finally arrives on the iPad this week with the release of a brand new iPad version of the ever popular Spending Log App. The iPhone version of Spending Log reached the top 5 of all apps in the UK last September and has been a feature of the top of the UK Finance Chart for over 2 years.
Powerful analysis of Spending:
Like its iPhone counterpart the new iPad Spending Log App provides powerful ways to analyse spending patterns. The App takes advantage of the extra screen space provided by the iPad to provide a clearer analysis than was possible on the iPhone. A consumer can log their purchases or bill payments into categories, allowing them to see, for example, how much they spend on fuel per month, or how much all those little trips to the coffee shop are costing a week ; All beautifully rendered in easy to understand charts.
Transfer Data Between iPhone and iPad:
Users can keep the state of their finances up to date at all times whilst out and about by using the iPhone Spending Log App on their iPhone. Spending data can then be sent up to the cloud from where it can be retrieved by the iPad Spending Log App where further analysis of spending can be made.
Specifically for iPad:
Unlike apps that run on both iPhone and iPad with a layout that isn't quite right for either, Spending Log for iPad is exactly that, specifically created with the iPad in mind. This means that unlike the other poorer finance apps the layout on the iPad is not the same as on the iPhone, meaning users needn't laboriously page through multiple screens as though they were just using a stretched out iPhone App; The layout is concise, using the iPad as it was meant to be used.
The Journalists Recommendation:
Spending Log has been featured in both the UK Telegraph 'Must-Have' apps list 2 years in a row and the UK Sunday Times App List also 2 years in a row. Sunday Times reviewer Holden Frith says, "Whether you are stretching your salary to the end of the month or saving towards a particular goal, this app will help you keep track of your progress." The App sold so well in 2012 it featured in Apples 'App Store Best of 2012' in the UK.
Spending Log for iPad 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Finance category.
