Best Savings and Budgeting Software

It’s easier to save when you know exactly where your money is going. Fortunately, there are some great apps and programs that can help you keep track of every dollar. Here are some of the best.

CountAbout aims to fill in some of Mint’s shortcomings. For instance, it offers a running register, which Mint does not. And if you’re a Quicken or Mint user, you can import your data right into CountAbout, which you can access via its website or smartphone app.

With CountAbout, you can track your expenses and construct a budget and customize your spending and saving categories. The service isn’t free: For $9.99 a year, you get a basic account; for $29.99, a premium account adds automatic downloading of bank deposits and withdrawals, credit card transactions, and other information.
