Money Manager includes all the basic features that 90% of users would want to see in a personal finance application. The design goals are to concentrate on simplicity and user-friendliness - something one can use everyday.
Becoming organised financially requires some amount of discipline. Financial management becomes complicated because there is no clear understanding of cash flow or an idea of income against expenses. Debt is usually what results when expenses exceed income.
The first step towards better financial organisation is keeping good records. Only when there is recognition of the expenses being made on a day to day basis will there be an understanding on how to cut back.
Did you realise you spent 300 Pounds in buying DVD movies last year? How many times did you watch them? Do you think now that the 300 Pounds would have been better spent on the unexpected maintenance on the car that came up yesterday? Of course there is no right or wrong answer to how you should spend your money. After all, it is you who earned that money and the right to spend it whichever way you see fit. But you can always make your money work harder for you.
