Keep an eye on your accounts with My Budget Book. But is it worth paying for?
Keeping an eye on what goes in and out of your back account is of vital importance to most people. My Budget Book aims to give its users a detailed and comprehensive system of being able to track and update your accounts wherever you’re. The app is easy to navigate, and each section is clearly marked. The downside to this is, is that there may be a few too many menus to wade through, and there’s plenty of financial jargon which may confuse some people.
The accounts system lets you add the details of any accounts that are in your name, and manage the transactions that take place through it. Once you’ve inputted several transactions, the app will form a bank statement styled document for you to look through. If looking through documents isn’t your thing, then you can check out several charts and graphs relevant to your accounts, and pinpoint where your expenditure is highest. This level of detail and accuracy is something not usually found in these type of apps, and it makes the app a real pleasure to use.
There’s plenty to like about My Budget Book, and if you’re looking for a sophisticated and comprehensive work app that will help you keep tabs of your account, then it really is second-to-none. The menu system is great, but the various choices may confuse some users, however.

HTC are pulling their backup service for an undisclosed period of time. Read on to find out more.
Users of HTCSense.com will have until April 30th to download all the data they’ve backed up and stored on the site, before HTC take the site down for renovation. Users who fail to download their data before the 30th will find all the contacts and messages stored on the site will have been deleted.
The website was fairly clunky, and fell under criticism by a lot of people, but it does leave HTC users in a bit of a pickle. Once the website is reintroduced, HTC hopes to have any issues ironed out, as well as a host of new features and services for its users.
Do you use HTCSense.com? Have you had good or bad experiences with it?
The U.S military have announced the release of a new alternative marketplace. Read on to find out more.
The U.S Army has recently launched a beta version of their own unique take on the Android and iOS app stores. The newly-designed marketplace already houses over a dozen apps used for training purposes, with plenty more on the way in the near future. Similarly to the Google Play store, the Army’s unique take also offers each app its own page, with images and a description.
To date, the most popular app is Soldier View, which gives soldiers information on an area they’re currently traveling in with a variety of maps. Currently the Army marketplace is solely for iOS users, but will soon be readily available for a variety of Android handsets.
The entire marketplace can be downloaded at once (although your data plan won’t like you after), or certain apps can be downloaded individually. At present, third-party developers are unable to produce apps to display on the Army’s marketplace, but it’s something that should happen in time.
