I've compared the best two apps I found; Cash Droid (CD) & Expense IQ (EIQ) and after comparing the two CD wins. Note: To add an exchange rate, you first need to create an account with that exchange rate. The downside is that you have to manually update it. Also, if you are travelling and pay in EUR on a GBP credit card, you have to manually calculate the exchange rate. I'd have to put the amount in EUR in the notes so that when it clears I can adjust the amount that was charged to the credit card in GBP. EIQ does not support this either. There is no way of setting a preset amount for a given transaction (EIQ does). You can manage recurring (scheduled) payments from one menu and set an end date. In EIQ, you have to go into the acct you want to have the recurring transaction in to do it and there is no end date so CD is better. You can backup to the int, ext SD card or DropBox, in EIQ you can only store to internal SD card in the free version. CD lets you set a lock pattern, EI only in Pro version so CD is better. CD does not allow you to set a filter to see just reconciled, cleared or uncleared items, EIQ does. This is an oversight and hope this will be implemented.
Does everything! I've been looking for an app like this for ages. Most will only keep track of past expenses OR let you forecast your cashflow. This does both. See how you have been sending, and also see where you will be at the end of the month/year/decade. Really helps in making decisions about how to manage your money. It also has a budget function (which i haven't used yet) making it even more helpful. The user interface could be better but I'm still giving it 5 stars because it's better than all the others.
Bad transfer bug. Dev doesn't respond. The app allows for scheduled payments and scheduled transfers between accounts. But unlike the payments, scheduled transfers don't get automatically processed when they're due. Instead, you need to long press each transfer and select "Make transaction", which completely defeats the purpose of making them scheduled. I don't know if this is a bug or deliberate (bad) design but either way the developer didn't respond to my multiple emails about it.
Best personal expense/income tracker to date. Simple, powerful, great UX, and also free. I have yet to find a better alternative.
Almost perfectly perfect! This app has it all, great features across the board. After a bit of exploring and setting up my household's budget I have an easy to use customized tool to have my everything set up for future months. I might even buy this fit for the synchronization feature alone. The only thing that I would like it to have is a Savings category to go with Bank, Money and Credit card.
Good app, has a lot of features, but the "recurring" transactions don't really work. You have to enter them manually when they are due, which is ridiculous. I have emailed the developer about this but have not received a reply.
