This is the sentence many women probably wish their husband or significant other would say (or even think!) before making some purchases. Even I have screwed up and over drafted without realizing it and paying the penalty. But those days are close to over.
I realized last week while at my mom’s birthday dinner that not everyone knows that there are financial apps for their phone replacing the tedious task of opening a browser, typing in the website (or going to your bookmarks) and logging into your bank account. These apps not only make it easier, they’re designed for your smart phone’s screen! Many offer all the same services when you log on at home on your computer but with mobile convenience. Make payments, transfer money between accounts, check balances…all from your phone.
Yes, these apps are secure. Probably more secure than using your computer. So grab your husband’s phone and download your bank (or credit card company’s) app and ask him to use it!
Some of the financial apps I have:
- PNC (although iPhone has a much better app, where’s the Android love developers?)
- Bank of America
