Best Free Android Apps
This article focuses on the very best free Android finance apps. What can finance apps do and how will they help? Basically, for a short, all-encompassing answer: all these Android apps concentrate on money and if they are used, they will help you save some cash!
The debate of whether to pay for Android apps will continue forever. That’s a decision that needs to be made by you, the individual, and whether you think the paid version is worth $X.XX to you. Will it give you that amount of enjoyment or will it save you more money than you paid for it? These are good questions to ask yourself before you jump in and pay for an Android app.
Since we’re talking about finance apps that can save you money, it would be pretty ironic if I were pushing paid apps. Sure there are Ac market some amazing Android finance apps that cost money (many of which I would heavily endorse- but that’s for another day), but if the goal of downloading them is to save money, there’s no better way than to start off with nothing invested! Here they are: some of the best free Android apps that will help you with your finances!
Get the latest stock quotes and news while being able to get very detailed information on the stocks you’re interested in (or the ones you own). This helpful free Android app also allows you to create and track your portfolio(s). While this app isn’t going to blow anyone away by the dozens of additional features that you may or may not want, its core functionality works extremely well.
Tip Calculator by TradeFields
This is another Android app that simply isn’t going to go beyond what it’s good at. This works perfectly as a tip calculator for anyone who wants (or needs) one. There are literally 100s of these tip calculator apps available and this one is the best. Why? For me, it has the best UI and is really foolproof. If you can dial a phone number, you can calculate everyone’s share of the 17.5% tip for the $127.56 dinner bill!
This is a very useful free Android app for all of the 10s of millions of PayPal users worldwide. With this app, you can do all the same things you normally do on PayPal. But now, by paying for an item as soon as it’s allowable, you can help expedite the shipping process. You never know, this may not impact you at all for dozens of transactions and then the next time, you’ll get that amazing skin cream on Friday instead of having to wait till Monday! Trust me, after you’ve had this app for a while, it’s just nice to have access to PayPal 24/7.
If you’re travelling abroad and want to have some peace of mind about the money conversion, you should download a free currency app. Why download just a random currency app when you can download the best of the best- for free?!? This Android app, developed by Pocketools, can provide you an extremely simple currency calculator in a very basic user interface. However, if you desire more currency information, this app can do that too: you can view currency trends over a 5 year period, graph any currency against any other, convert any currency to another (all currencies of the world are available on this app) or do just about any other thing you can think of if it involves any of the world’s currencies.
This isn’t what you would typically think of as a finance app, right? It’s not, but it is. Most importantly, it can help you save money if you choose to dig deep into the information it provides you. It will track your vehicle’s gas consumption in a number of different ways that can be helpful if you’re trying to cut costs and your fuel usage. This app’s UI is very sleek and the data is very easy to read and interpret. It’s eerily fun and potentially a money-saving Android app!
This generic name represents the power of the developer of this Android app. It’s Google and this app provides real-time stock quotes. The UI is very solid; like most things Google, it isn’t flashy, but gets the job done nicely. If you’re a Google Finance user and you’ve loaded up a portfolio, this app will be a “game changer” as it’s fully synchronized and gives you access to everything as if you were on your home computer.
