Spending too much? An app that can help.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Spending too much for holiday gifts?  There’s an app that can help.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Whether you’ve been doing most of your shopping online or running to stores for bargains, it’s easy to lose track of how much you’re spending.   At least until the bills come in.   An app for the iPhone called Adaptu Wallet is designed to help you make better decisions before you buy.  Adaptu Executive Business Leader Mark Brundage…

“If I’m at a particular store and I know I’m going to spend say five hundred dollars on a bunch of holiday gifts, I can input that as a future transaction and see exactly how it’s going to affect the rest of my budget either this month or maybe I’m going to set it for the following month.  It will let you know how you’re doing against all your other spending and budgets.”

The Adaptu Wallet is free.  The company is owned by the StanCorp Financial Group.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
