Cyber Monday or cyberspace?

I love technology, no seriously I really I do!

It’s just at that time when it doesn’t quite work… that’s when I want to throw my laptop out the window or flush the iPad into the nearest loo! But assuming apps download with ease and access doesn’t get denied, it really does make life easier… so let’s look at what’s out there!

I thought this was pretty cool – ontrees.com is a personal finance app that lets you view all your bank accounts whilst splitting your spending into categories so you can see clearly where those funds actually go! Yummy restaurant, groceries or household bills, it’s a great starting point for budgeting.

The same is true for competitor app yolt.com – you link your accounts to the app using the same information you would normally use to access your bank. What makes it really useful is that if you have more than one account you will no longer need to switch from one app to another! Hoorah!

Similarly the moneyboxapp.com is ‘banging’ according to our kids. It’s pretty much a virtual piggy bank for those cyber pennies (wish I had come up with the idea)! Simply connect your bank account and /or credit card to the app and it will round up the transaction. So for example, if you have bought your flat white coffee for £2.45, it will debit £3 then and (get this!) it will then invest your cash into a stocks and shares ISA! Apparently the average person invests £440 a year without noticing… great idea for the grandchildren…
