Denver, CO (PressExposure) June 03, 2009 -- In a tough economy the iPhone offers many ways to manage and save money, options which are far more cost effective than owning a PC. The average cost of an iPhone app ranges anywhere from $1.99 to $9.99. Compare this to the cost of a desktop application such as Quicken or Money. Quicken Deluxe retails on Amazon for $40.
Code Beyond a Denver based corporation, recently introduced an iPhone App - Dough - that takes the value equation to an even higher level. Dough allows the user to manage an unlimited number of accounts, reconcile checking accounts, do budgeting, and manage bills for only $6.99.
"Dough was the result of many months of work studying hundreds of emails of existing iPhone Apps and using a decade of experience with Quicken on the PC" says Vibi Varghese, CEO of Code Beyond.
"In the final result we tried to create something that was easy to use combined with the most commonly used features. We wanted the users to tell us what was missing. This way we would avoid the pitfall of traditional software companies who fill their products with so many features only to make it extremely hard to use"
Products like Dough have another advantage over Quicken on the PC. It goes everywhere with the owner. This makes it easy to enter transactions as they happen, which is something that keeps most people from staying on top of their finances.
Other noteworthy products on the iPhone include : Checkbook - basic electronic checkbook for $1.99, Money - personal asset tracking for $9.99, iExpenseIt - business expense tracking for $4.99 and Save Benji's - tracking product prices for $0.99.
With the cost of the iPhone at only $199 including a two year contract, the phone with an app for everything is a great choice for consumers who want to skip computer purchases to save money in a tough economy. And with Dough combining three Apps (Checkbook, Budget and Bill Payment) in one, there are now even more ways to save money on the iPhone.
