Your iPhone works like a miniature checkbook in your pocket. With the right iPhone apps, your iPhone can keep track of your account balances, generate reports and keep track of your monthly budget. This lets you ditch the old paper checkbook and keep your finances on your iPhone. All you have to do is enter each transaction that you incur each day.

Use categories to specify what the charge was for. The application then tracks your spending so you know where your money is going every day. This is a great way to fix bad spending habits.
