Budget Boss iPhone App Review: Get Your Finances Sorted
Tucker Cummings | On 24, May 2013
Budget Boss is an iPhone app developed by Damian Toohey/Finnoggin LLC. If you just can’t seem to stick to the household budget you’ve set for yourself, Budget Boss is an excellent app that can help to keep you on track.
In addition to helping you stick to your budget, Budget Boss can also be used to calculate payoffs. If you want to know how long it will take to pay off your credit cards at a given interest rate, this app can help to put things in perspective.
Budget Boss uses both pie graphs and margin graphs to help you track and visualize your monthly cash flow situation. It even learns from your inputs and can make predictions about when your future balance will reach a certain amount. How cool is that?
One thing that is frustrating about personal finance apps is how long they take to set up. However, I found Budget Boss quite simple, fast, and straightforward to use, right from the get-go.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that Budget Boss isn’t the prettiest personal finance app I’ve used. But what it lacks in sleek lines and sinuous design, it more than makes up for in functionality. While it may seem clunky to some design snobs, the color coding is a great subconscious way to internalize your saving and spending habits. And overall, the design of this app is actually quite intuitive.
With some recent improvements made to enhance performance, there’s never been a better time to check out Budget Boss and see what all the fuss is about. It’s a solid tool with some unique features, which makes it a good choice for the average iPhone user in need of budgeting assistance.
Budget Boss is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
