Getting new iP4, app question for budgeting and passwords
I'm new to this site and iPhones, but I will be getting an iP4 shortly.
Right now I am interested in getting a budgeting app and a password app and I'd like some advice
For the budgeting app, I don't need an extra complex one that'll provide me with graphs, etc etc.
Basically what I want is something that I can enter my pay chq amount -I can do this manually, or ideally if I can have it recurring, and whenever I make an expense, I want to put it in a category. Say "lunch", "grocery", "entertainment" etc and for the app to basically keep track of these and maybe show me at the end of month where I have spent my money and how much I "should" have left after all the expenses etc.
For the PW app, I am a BB user so I am looking for something to basically just "store" my passwords, like the PW keeper app for BBs.
I just want to enter my user name, PW, site name or whatever it is for, and just save it on my phone.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi and welcome to iMore
I can give you a suggestion for the pw keeper app as I was a previous bb user as well I currently use an app called "keeper" and it's free or you can get the paid version which has more options-one of which i believe it syncs your info through wifi to have as a 'back up'. I've never ventured that far with the app as the free version does what I need, storing my user names & pws.
I back up with iTunes weekly so that's why I don't worry about getting the paid version.

So with all those apps, is it just manual entry of details?
I don't trust apps that "sync" my pws, like I said what I really want do is basically just enter all my details, like BB pw keeper.
So for example it'd be:
etc, and I'd enter the app with a password obviously

Honestly, for your needs, the Mint app sounds pretty sufficient for budgeting. I have pretty specific requirements in a finance app I haven't been able to find yet, but I've found SilverWiz and PocketMoney at the next two that are pretty close in terms of where your money's gone.
However, my biggest concern is where my money will go. Is buying that new iPad going to overdraw my bank account 6 months down the line? Will I be able to save enough money to take a vacation? For that, the most stable app I've found is Account Tracker - the budgeting piece is still a work in progress, but the cash flow is fantastic. I REALLY love My Cash Flow HD for cash flow, but it becomes too unstable after too many edits to recurring transactions. Account Tracker does have a lot more customization to recurring transactions.

I have to agree that Mint is your best money mgt option. It's excellent financial management software that happens to have an app, not an app that tries to be money mgt software. Another one you might find useful is Pageonce. This is the best app I have found for tracking balances, due dates, and pretty much everything. Together, these will likely provide you with all the tools you could possible need.
See, I tried Mint and noticed that it requires me to "find" my bank info etc...I don't really trust those apps
I really just need something like an excel spreadsheet where I can enter my income, and substitute the expeneses as I document them.
I know that having the app track all these are better than entering them manually, but like I said, it's for my own personal trust
