12 Tools and Apps to Get Your Finances on Track in 2016
<a href="http://www.mint.com">Mint</a> is a free service that automatically tracks income and expenses from connected banks and credit cards. It aims to make budgeting and investing simple by putting everything in one place. Mint also includes a free credit score and lets users pay bills through the site. Keep in mind that paid competitors, such as YNAB or Quicken (owned by Intuit, which also owns Mint), may have a more complete set of features.
<a href="https://lastpass.com">LastPass</a> is not a personal finance app, but it could help prevent a financially disastrous situation. With data breaches continually in the news, it makes more sense than ever to have a unique password for each online account. LastPass generates strong passwords, stores them within a secure account, and auto-fills passwords so users don't have to remember them all.
Many banks and credit unions now offer mobile apps to account holders. Many apps allow users to make credit card or bill payments, check account balances, and transfer money from a savings to a checking account. Other useful features to look for include mobile check depositing or interactive directions to nearby ATMs.
