Best Free Android Apps to Help With Your Finances

What can finance apps do, and how will they help? Basically, for a short, all-encompassing answer, all these Android apps concentrate on money; if they are used, they will help you save some cash! This article focuses on the very best free Android finance apps.

The debate over whether to pay for Android apps will continue forever. That’s a decision that needs to be made by you, the individual, and whether you think the paid version is worth $X.XX to you. Will it give you that enjoyment or save you more money than you paid for it? These are good questions to ask yourself before you jump in and pay for an Android app.

Since we’re talking about finance apps that can save you money, it would be ironic if I were pushing paid apps. Sure, some amazing Android finance apps cost money (many of which I would heavily endorse- but that’s for another day), but if the goal of downloading them is to save money, there’s no better way than to start. With nothing invested! Here are some of the best free Android apps to help your finances!

Android Apps

Quote Pro

Get the latest stock quotes and news while getting detailed information on the stocks you’re interested in (or the ones you own). This helpful free Android app also allows you to create and track your portfolio(s). While this app isn’t going to blow anyone away by the dozens of additional features you may or may not want, its core functionality works extremely well. You should know how to install Android apps with OBB files from the Club Apk website.


Tip Calculator by TradeFields

This is another Android app that simply isn’t going to go beyond what it’s good at. This works perfectly as a tip calculator for anyone who wants (or needs) one. 100s of these tip calculator apps are available, and this one is the best. Why? For me, it has the best UI and is foolproof. If you dial a phone number, you can calculate everyone’s share of the 17.5% tip for the $127.56 dinner bill!


This is a handy free Android app for all of the 10s of millions of PayPal users worldwide. With this app, you can do all the same things you normally do on PayPal. But now, by paying for an item as soon as it’s allowable, you can help expedite the shipping process. You never know; this may not impact you for dozens of transactions, and then the next time, you’ll get that amazing skin cream on Friday instead of waiting till Monday! Trust me, after you’ve had this app for a while, it’s nice to have access to PayPal 24/7.

Currency Converter

Download a free currency app if you’re traveling abroad and want peace of mind about money conversion. Why download a random currency app when you can download the best of the best- for free?!? This Android app, developed by Pocketools, can provide an elementary currency calculator with a fundamental user interface. However, if you desire more currency information, this app can do that too: you can view currency trends over five years, graph any currency against any other, and convert any currency to another (all currencies of the world are available on this app) or do just about any other thing you can think of if it involves any of the world’s currencies.


This isn’t what you would typically think of as a finance app, right? It’s not, but it is. Most importantly, it can help you save money if you dig deep into the information it provides. It will track your vehicle’s gas consumption in several different ways that can be helpful if you’re trying to cut costs and your fuel usage. This app’s UI is sleek, and the data is straightforward to read and interpret. It’s eerily fun and potentially a money-saving Android app!


This generic name represents the power of the developer of this Android app. It’s Google, and this app provides real-time stock quotes. The UI is solid; like most things Google, it isn’t flashy but nicely gets the job done. If you’re a Google Finance user and you’ve loaded up a portfolio, this app will be a “game-changer” as it’s fully synchronized and gives you access to everything as if you were on your home computer.

Personal Finance by PageOnce

This is a great Android app if you have many banking/credit card accounts and crave the ability to stay on top of them from one easy-to-use source. This finance app is well-built, and the UI is very pleasing to the eye. This is one of those apps that keep going. What do I mean? Well, the more you use it, the more features you’ll find and the more ideas you’ll have to utilize it! IMO, it’s a must-have.


This is another personal finance manager app. Like the other apps of this type, there are functions galore! It allows you to add many different types of accounts (checking, credit, savings- and multiple ones of each kind) into the manager, schedule and monitor recurring payments, create a budget (short-term, long-term term, or even set up a “project” which would be great for vacations) and filter what types of information you want to view during normal viewing or when checking out one of the many reports available. Amazingly, there is much more than this free Android app is capable of! I’m leaving out some great Android apps. What about the huge banks’ and insurance companies’ Android apps?

*Of course, every major bank, credit card company, and insurance company today has created its own Aitsd app. What do they do? Essentially, they’re all the same: these Android apps make it easier for their customers to manage their accounts and learn the latest about the company and its offerings. What’s the best thing? There’s a tie: they’ll make your life easier and are free to download!

To list all these would be beyond pointless as they’re all very similar and are only worth downloading if you’re a company customer. However, this doesn’t mean I don’t use them, and you shouldn’t use them! I suggest you download and take advantage of as many Android apps as possible that make sense for you as possible. It’s not a bad thing for a $0 investment! An up-to-the-minute balance for your checking account may prevent you from those dreaded, expensive overdraft fees.
