I have expenses. A lot of them. I need to keep track of them in a way that makes sense. I’ve tried the wallet full of receipts, but that hasn’t worked out for me. I need more than good intentions and lots of tiny slips of paper to stay on a budget. has a place I can stick all those receipts and finally get on track.

This week’s weekly sponsor is MetaTrader 4, the ultimate solution for online trading and technical analysis.

MetaTrader is the leading trading platform for the Forex (foreign exchange) market. The company has recently released an iPad version of their popular web app, meaning that traders can now work from wherever they are, without having to be tied down to the office — a real bonus in today’s working world. The new version of their app features an enhanced graphical system which provides better performance and an improved functionality when working with charts.


Back in March of last year, I took a first look at Moneywiz, a really nice yet simple money management app for the iPad, and I loved it. The app got a solid 9 out of 10 and I ended the review saying:

The answer: it’s absolutely brilliant. It proves that money management apps don’t have to be boring and functional – the interface is simply stunning and although it’s not yet been optimised for the new iPad, on a retina display it looks absolutely fantastic.

Since then, Moneywiz has been tweaked and altered considerably and a couple of days ago, version 1.4 was released for all to feast their eyes on. So, in light of this, let's take another look at this fantastic money management app and see if it still lives up to that impressive 9 out of 10 rating.


Money management is an important part of everyone’s life and in this day and age, knowing how much money you’ve got and planning your spending is vital to making sure that your hard-earned dough goes the furthest. Today I will be looking at Moneywiz, a money management app for both the iPad and iPhone. It’s jam-packed full of features that help you track your spending whilst still keeping a watchful eye on your bank balance.

Let’s dive straight in and see what it has to offer.


How do you keep track of the bills you have to pay, how much they are, and when they’re due? Perhaps you use sticky notes that you take down and throw away after paying a particular bill. Maybe your monthly expenses are noted in a spreadsheet where you can mark them off the list after putting the check in the mail. Or maybe, like me, you have recurring tasks in your calendar to pay each bill on the day that it’s due.

Some developers, I’ve noticed, tend to take the relatively mundane, day-to-day tasks that might be tedious or disorganized, and try to make performing them a more pleasant experience by designing an app to help you do it. Today, I’m going to talk about Bills On Your Table – one such app by the folks at PoweryBase designed to make the process of paying your bills that much more pleasant.


With our increased use of powerful mobile platforms, such as smartphones and tablets, we have the opportunity to keep a lot of our life stored digitally. The finance category of the App Store has always been a popular one, since the promise of an all-in-one solution to monitoring your finances – right in your pocket – is an attractive one.

BudgetBook developer, noidentity, originally released MoneyBook on the iPhone, but that always lacked an iPad app. BudgetBook is a separate app with a separate binary, but clearly draws inspiration from its iPhone brother.


All of us have to deal with money throughout our lives, some have more of it to deal with than others. Whether you’re a master trader or a penniless student, there is an iPad app designed to help you out.

We’re going to go through some of the best iPad apps for dealing with money, from getting the financial news to planning a personal budget. Without further ado…
