This week on Univision 34, A Primera Hora with #LatinaGeeks special appearance, we chat about money management apps for 2016.

From investing to saving to planning for retirement, kids college education or buying a new house, New Year’s resolutions always have our best intentions in mind, but as much as we try, they aren’t always easy to keep. This year, #LatinaGeeks would like to help you keep your financial resolutions with these Top 5 Money Management Apps for 2016:

YNAB – You Need a Budget

  • Helps you keep track of your spending.
  • Allows you to set your budget with specific categories (food, eating out, utilities, etc.)
  • The whole idea of this app is to help you have more of a grasp on exactly where your money goes.


  • Helps you save money without realizing it.

  • It is designed to “learn” your spending habits so that you won’t accidentally overdraw your account.


  • Helps you track your spending daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • You can see exactly how much you have in your account, and seamlessly track your spending as your account value goes up and down.

  • Mint allows you to pay your bills through the app.
  • Keep track of your credit score.
  • Sends notifications of bank balances, spending or when you went over budget.
  • It categorizes your expenses so you know where your money is going.
