One could keep a close watch on bank accounts with the Balance app. This app keeps track of all incoming and outgoing funds easily on the iPhone. The app automatically calculates the account balance after each transaction is made through the account. Any credit or debit from the account is monitored by the app and thus virtually gives the shock (or whatever the mixed feeling is when viewing account information) in installments by constant updates rather than in one go! Very helpful.
This one is similar to Balance in the sense that this app could be used for planning and maintaining expenditure within the budget. Spend Lite is the free version of Spend and could be used to set 5 weekly budgets for food, entertainment, going out or any other thing one could think of. Each time any money is spent on a particular item, the value is to be entered and then Spend shows how much money is left within the budget to spend.
