When you are first starting a business there are so many things you have to work through. From navigating the sometimes red tape filled waters of applying for Small Business Administration loans to putting your business plan into action by setting up shop in the perfect location, it can seem that once the dust settles it is smooth sailing. The truth is, however, that there are always things that need to be tweaked to help the business run more smoothly. One of the first bumps in the road is managing the finances. It can become very overwhelming very quickly. In today’s world of technology however, help is easier than ever to find. Following are mobile apps to help you manage your small business finances.
Mint has gained recognition as a great way to track income and expenses.

This is a powerful money management tool for any small business, and now they have a mobile app. This allows you to stay on top of things no matter where you are.

Probably the most used accounting program for small businesses, QuickBooks definitely has staked a claim to the small business accounting market. Bookkeepers, accountants, and small business owners alike tend to favor it. While the app does not have all of the capabilities of the full program, having access to the accounts from mobile devices can be priceless in and of itself in certain situations.
Okay, so it isn’t a financial management app. It is useful in managing finances, however.
