Manage Your Finance and Banking Needs From This One App

Home - Quick Tips - Manage Your Finance and Banking Needs From This One App

This week, Netflix announced that it was raising prices on two of its popular streaming plans. Imagine, if you will, that you were first alerted to this fact while scrolling through your recent transactions. Then pretend you were so upset that you decided to cancel your service right there on the spot. Well, with Clarity Money, that would actually be possible.

This is just one unique feature of Clarity Money that makes it one of my favorite personal finance apps on the market. In addition to that cool cancellation trick, you can also transfer money between your various accounts, set up automated savings, and more all from one place. Furthermore, I was really impressed with the sleek design Clarity sports, including its widget-esque feed feature. Recently, I took a closer look at the app and the features that set it apart in a video for my YouTube channel:

Now, I will say that there are some features that Clarity lacks that may not make it the best personal finance app for everyone. For one, unlike Mint or some other budget-focused options, Clarity Money doesn’t allow you to create custom spending categories. However, you can still recategorize transaction labels from the available options and even apply those changes to future purchases. Another area where Clarity is slightly lacking is in notifications. While they will alert you when you get paid, when you have an upcoming bill, and more, Mint still has far more specific alert options that some users may find helpful.

With that said, what I like about Clarity Money is that it allows me to not only view my spending (presented in an attractive manner) but also make money moves on the fly, essentially making this a financial hub more than anything else. If that sounds good to you, I’d definitely recommend signing-up for Clarity Money and putting some of its helpful, clever features to work for you.
