“There’s an app for that!”

Chances are, you’ve heard that phrase a few thousand times. After all, apps are our go-to problem-solvers these days. Whether you want to know when to take a bathroom break during a movie or forgot where you parked your car and want someone with pirate’s voice to tell you where it is (yes, really!), there’s an app that can help.

The problem with apps, however, is with millions to choose from, how do you find the best? That’s where we step in. Credit Sesame looked at dozens of apps and found the must-haves that will help keep your finances in order. If you don’t already have all of these downloaded, proceed to the app store now.

The best app if you’re ready to make the switch from Quicken or Mint: CountAbout


Why it’s super: If you’re a long-time Quicken user, one thing you may have noticed about other financial apps is that you can’t important your data over. CountAbout changes that.

It’s the only personal finance app that lets you import your Quicken history so you don’t lose any of your transaction data. You can use the app to set up your budget with customized categories and keep track of your running balance from day-to-day.

The app links up to your checking, savings, credit and investment accounts so you can see what your bottom line looks like at a glance. If Mint has been your go-to budgeting app but you’re looking for something different, you can also important your Mint data over without missing a beat.

It saves you: Time
