Ara Spends - Money diary and bills reminder

Ara Spends is right for you if you run out of money all the time; you buy on impulse; you don’t know how and where you spend; you pay the bills late; you don’t know why you can’t save money; you don’t know your debt level.

Ara Spends is your money (spending) diary app, where you record all your money transactions on a daily basis, whether you have done those with cash, credit or debit card.

Start in seconds: no settings required
There are no set up screens and no bank accounts to link. As you spend, keep receipts, open the app and enter the transaction. No more than that! Ara Spends does the heavy math and gives you useful insights about your spending habits.

No Internet required
Ara spends works without an Internet connection, so you can add transactions everywhere you see fit. All data are saved on your phone.

Keep it manual
Since all entries are manual, you can take time to think about why you bought that article in the first place and how it made you feel. The app features many ways to help you speed up entries, tough.

To enter a budget (something you plan to pay) or an expense, just hit the “+” icon from anywhere in the app interface.

Budgeting process
Create a Budget. You won't be able to track expenses effectively without one. Ara Spends makes the budgeting process super easy: just add the date when you plan to do that spending, the amount, choose a category and your monthly budget will be updated.

Expenses list
Ara Spends has enough categories to encompass most expenses, yet not too many to make it overwhelming. Just choose the appropriate category for what you plan to pay or buy (budget) or for what you just purchased (expense).

Credit cards and other debts
Ara Spends also tracks your debts level and payments: just choose “Debt” as a category for your transaction.

Spending pie chart
Never ask again: “where does all the money go?” Ara Spends features a pie chart which shows clearly each expense category’s proportion. If you are in the red every month, you’ll know how much you need to reduce to break even.

Besides being able to explain how your paycheck disappears, you’ll also see if you are spending on what’s important to you.

Go to the “History” page to know more about your spending habits. The more you use the app, the more this page becomes interesting.

Transactions with superpowers
Each transaction you enter in Ara Spends, whether it’s a budget or an expense, you can attach some features to it, like notifications, copy it as a template, create a debt tracker, or link its amount and note (description) to that category to save time.

Go to the app “Last transaction” page to begin using those awesome features.

To do today and reminders
To prevent late fees, always pay bills on time. Ara Spends can send you an automatic notification each day at 7 o’clock, whenever you got bills to pay for a given day. You can also set manual notifications for a particular budget transaction, and choose the time that your phone should remind you about it.

To get an automatic reminder for a particular day, hit the “Reminder” switch while entering any budget transaction for that given day. That process also put the transaction in the “Today” screen when the time has come.

Progress monitoring
Ara Spends not only tracks your “spending vs. budget” for the whole month, but it also does it for each expense category, so you can know when to stop.

Thanks to Ara Spends, your overspending era is over!

Templates for recurring payments
Save all your recurring bills as templates to save time. Use this feature to automatically create several budget transactions at once.

Track travel expenditures
Ara Spends is fully multi currencies and comes loaded with currency codes and symbols of all English and French-speaking countries. You can add your own, too. So keep tracking your spending even when you’re far from home.
