Review: James Narrin MyMoney
On August 25, 2008, we reviewed a collection of 15 different personal finance applications for the iPhone and iPod touch in a roundup entitled iPhone Gems: Every Personal Finance Application, Reviewed. This review contains a review of one application from that roundup; additional comparative details can be found in the original full story.
MyMoney ($1) from James Narrin is another attractively priced multi-account financial manager. The app’s main screen shows all accounts, including the name, financial institution, and balance. Tapping an account opens the the account view, which features tabs at the bottom to allow the user to view transactions by date, type, or name, as well as a balancing tab, which shows unreconciled and reconciled transactions, and includes an option to view and enter the last statement balance, finance charges, interest earned, and new statement balance.
The tabbed interface extends to the new transaction entry page, which is accessed by tapping the add button in the upper right corner of the acocunt view screen. It offers tabs for selecting debit, ATM, check, other, or deposit transactions, each with the appropriate entry areas—for example, the check tab offers fields for both the recipient and the check number, while the ATM tab offers only amount and the date. It may not offer the most features of the apps in its price range, but MyMoney is a capable application with an intelligently designed interface, and worthy of our general recommendation.
