Simple to use yet offering plenty of options, MonSense is a convenient and inexpensive way of keeping an eye on your finances, regardless of where you happen to be.
Using simple one tap controls, you can divide your finances up according to work, personal, and travel-related costs. Hitting the plus sign leads you to being able to enter details on how much you spent or received, on what kind of item, as well as whether the payment is repeated at some point. You can set up quick expenses too, meaning you don’t have to keep re-entering figures - proving ideal for daily cups of coffee. For those who don’t want anything too complex that’s as far as you need to go with MonSense, but it does offer more than that.
Going one step further for the more organized user, you can opt to export your accounts to Excel or as a PDF file. You can also set up pending payments, such as when you know you’re being paid on a particular date, as assisted by iCal. There’s also the all-important ability to set a passcode, meaning you don’t have to worry about any strangers learning about your finances. For the stat fiend, you can check out patterns in your spending too, via various visualizations.
In a way, MonSense is kind of understated in what it offers but it manages to offer mostly everything one could want while arranging their finances. It’s quick and easy to do, while still being quite powerful. Even better, it doesn’t cost a fortune and it’s quite stylish to look at. For those trying to form better financial habits, it’s an ideal solution.
