Do you track your finances on your mobile? I do. What tool do you use? Of course you can keep an Excel file on your mobile, but it’s not very secure, and unfortunately not easy to synchronize it, or backup automatically. There are numerous finance tracking applications for mobile devices so I thought that E71 users (either business or private) might be interested in one of those tools called Flying Money (by Flying Bird Soft).
The biggest pain with Flying Money, as with other financial applications, is that you need to spend some time to customize it according to your needs at the beginning. It is wise to start with creating your budget, adding your own currency (if you are not using one of the four default ones), defining your bank accounts, savings, monthly, or other periodical payments. With Nokia E71 it’s easier as the full keyboard is really helpful when you put a lot of alphanumerical information. After completing all necessary setup steps, it’s easy to use. You can set in advance all monthly (or other periodical) payments, deposits, incomes and you will be able to easily filter out interesting information to keep an eye on your wallet, card limits and savings.
Application works on E71 smoothly and looks fine in the landscape mode. You can backup stored information and restore everything from an archive. What is cool, it can also export all information you want into a CSV file supported by MS Excel. Flying Money is not free but you can install it and check 15-day trial version and then decide if it’s worth buying. Flying Money is available for Symbian UIQ 3 devices as well.
