As a business professional, sometimes the hardest part of traveling is doing the expense report. There are many apps that can help you streamline this process and help you keep accurate records of your expenses, income, mileage and much more.
Each app allows you to manually enter your income and outgoing transactions, but the other features vary widely.
Here are four of the most popular apps that will simplify your expense report and take the hassle out of tracking time, mileage and expenses.
1. Expenditure ($2.99): This app is highly intuitive for the individual user. It allows you to track based on categories, set up repeating expenses, and add a photo or note. You can sort transactions by most expensive category, most expensive month and recent transactions.
2. Expense Manager (free / $4.99): Large buttons and easy income and expense tracking are hallmarks of this app. The auto fill features allow you to prepopulate fields. It supports multiple accounts and photo storing as well.
3. Expensify (free): The smartscan feature in this app allows you to input receipts with a picture. The first 10 are free, then 20 cents per scan. You can record mileage automatically via GPS. Expensify can import credit card statements, and it lets you track expenses from cash and bank accounts as well.
4. Expenser (free): This super app tracks time, expenses and captures receipts. It imports bank and credit card statements and categorizes everything for you. With one click, you can submit your expense report as well.
