Help Save Money with Some Awesome iPhone Apps

iPhone, Mobile

Mashable has posted a nice list of iPhone apps that are both meant to save you money but also to make organizing your life a bit easier. Whether its finances, grocery lists or driving directions it seems your iPhone can do just about everything these days.

The first set of apps listed are the financing apps. The two apps are called Quicken and BillMinder. Both are meant to help manage your bills, expenses and accounts all at once. This makes it easy to check what you are spending money on and how much you have exactly. Very handy for people like myself who don’t write things down as much as they should.

For shopping, there is Coupon Sherpa and Grocery Gadget Shopping List. These 2 apps are both to help organize and save money by way of coupon clipping. Only, now you’d be clipping the coupons virtually instead of scouring the Sunday ads. Grocery Gadget Shopping List makes it easy to keep track of what you need at the store, nothing more.

For managing your food and drink a bit, there’s Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner which gives you access to hundreds of recipes and a Dinner Spinner that lets the app randomly choose your next meal for you. Mixology is essentially your own personal bartender giving you all of the different drinks you can make and how to make them.

Traveling is a very simple thing that can be troublesome without some direction once in a while. The native Maps app from Google does a nice job of checking traffic and directions to get to your destination with ease. Gas Buddy helps find the cheapest gas in town which is obviously extremely helpful these days.

Lastly, the communication side involved TextFree Unlimited which promises free texting using only data instead of SMS through your carrier. The downside is that the app must be open or no texts can be received. Finally, Skype rounds it out with easy VOIP calling and IM.
