It might have a strange name and look bizarre but this is one of the best financial management apps on the market for the iOS platform.

It comes with a free built-in online syncing service to keep track of expenses and payments that adds to its easy-to-use set up.

The design might seem complex at first but is easy to get to grips with and there is also the chance to upgrade with multiple users support for budgeting for the family, export options to include Google Docs, PDF files, and Excel documents, and karma points to support the developers.
