Financisto helps you out to manager your different payment accounts (bank, paypal, cash...)

As the developer describes it: Financisto is an open-source personal finance manager. Because the keystone of saving money is managing properly your expenses. Financisto comes up to help you with all that stuff.

You can add multiple accounts and multiple currencies. For example, you can add your bank account and balance, the amount of available cash and the status of your paypal account. Likewise, you can set your home currency and any exchange rates in case you need to operate with different currency. -It allows you to schedules and recurring transactions, sort by and give attributes to them, add projects, payees and locations among many other.

One of the features wi liked most is that you can backup your data through Dropbox or Google docs and you can even set automatic dailiy backups. What's more, Financisto allows you to attach pictures to your expenses (for example, invoices or bills). Finally, it allows you to monitor your expenses through graphics, briefings and filters. This way you won't miss a thing on your personal economy.

Although it could be enhanced regarding layout and it could include some sort of tutorial, Financisto is one of the most useful apps for managing your payment accounts. Recommendable.

    This is definitely one of the best money management apps because it has the richest functionality and this app has been improving from time to time. The interface is a little bit of outdated although the holo ui is on its way. I hope it will even incorporate with the latest material design. Then this will be even better.

    Free and open source source software. Don't pay $1.99 a month for other apps that don't do more than this. Can't thank the developer enough.
