Managing your Money with Mobile Apps

Mercer Savings Bank

Android / iOS

I pull up my Mercer Savings Bank app, and in a few clicks, I have my answer. Whew! I’ll have to make these groceries last a while.

What else does this app do? It looks like I can transfer money between my accounts, pay bills, and even deposit a check with my phone. That’s great. I can take care of all of my banking while I’m waiting in line at the grocery store.

What I really need is an app to help me do better managing my money. Let me see which budgeting apps have the best ratings.
