After having tried Budget, iExpenseit and PocketMoney I figured that I needed a program that could show me where my money was going, keep track of accounts, allow for income entries, and properly support the yen.
Other programs either didn’t support the yen at all, or they simply replaced the dollar sign with a yen sign. Either way, monetary values still read dollars with denominations for cents.
As a typical guy, I never compare prices or haggle/ bargain/ negotiate when I buy stuff, unless it’s a big purchase like a big-screen TV, computer or whatever. I never shop around comparing how much brand A of sugar is to brand B. So when I got this app, I thought that I will have no use for it. However, people around me thought otherwise…
The name Bloomberg is quite synonymous with the world of business and financial news. It also is a leader in providing timely market data and technology (its Bloomberg terminals are quite sweet). So it makes quite a lot of sense for this titan to have one of the best finance apps on the Iphone.
