Of course, just like all of Apple’s products before it, the iPad is expensive and will put a dent in your wallet. Luckily, there are already a ton of great apps for the iPad specifically designed to help you keep track of your finances.

    Many iPad apps cost money to download and install, but there are plenty of free apps out there. Since spending money to keep track of your money seems a little foolish, check out these apps: useful, effective, and completely free. Whether you need to keep track of your online business or just note down your monthly spending, here are the top three best iPad apps to keep your finances organized.


    If you’re one of the many iPad users who takes part in the internet marketplace - and, these days, who isn’t? - the free app Square will help you keep track of your transactions. You’ll be able to accept payments through Square for your business or charity. You can, of course, also use Square to accept money from friends or other people in your personal life. Square will help you out with calculating sales tax on your transactions and even automatically produces email and SMS reciepts for both cash and credit card payments. Square is particularly popular among iPad users who appreciate app interfaces that rely mostly on images, providing a visual representation of your financial transactions.

    E*Trade Mobile Pro

    E*Trade is well known for helping every day people get involved in stock market investing. Wall Street is an ominous, complex system for beginning investors and companies like E*Trade make their money helping every day people actually make a profit when playing the stock market game. E*Trade has recently released an iPad app to help investors everywhere keep track of their investments. The app is customizable so you can keep track of your individual investments, but the app also gives you up to date investment news.

    EZTip Calculator Tip Agent

    Even the most money aware folks can have trouble dividing a dinner bill into multiple parts and adding in a tip, too. The same goes for splitting up rent and utilities in a shared house or when calculating how much each sibling should pay towards that present for mom. Whatever it is you’re dividing up, the EZTip Calculator is one of those apps that might seem superfluous until you find yourself in the exact moment in which it was made to shine.
