The simple telephone is gone. That is a known fact. I remember my first phone was a Nokia 3410, back in the day when there were no color displays and phones were like bricks. I still love those phones, you could drop them from a 4 story building and they would work just as well. And the batey used to last over 7 days…Oh..what memories. But those days are gone now. The simple has become the ultra-smart, or in common language, smartphones. They have made their way into our lives and it’s safe to say that now, as with computers, we couldn’t function without them.
Managing Your Finances on Your Android Device
Smartphones can give us more mobility than we’ve ever had. Having our contacts, emails, photos, movies, Internet and many more in just one device has made our lives much more easier. And the use of smartphones does not stop there. Apps are what make them so good. Apps allow us to do everything we want on our smartphones, for entertainment, we have games and videos, we have a host of apps that allow us to keep in touch with our work and with our friends, have a healthy life by the use of Fitness Apps and, one of the most important, keep up finances.
There are a lot of financial apps out there, from currency converters to stock market apps, and, of course, Banking Apps. These allow us to keep track of our money and our bank accounts, make payments and transactions without needing to go to the bank or ATM. A great time saver, we all know the lines we have to face when we go to our bank and these Banking Apps are just what we need to never have to through that again.

There are quite enough apps on Google Play, from which to choose from, from simple money trackers to Banking apps that allow you make transactions directly from your Android device.
