As an iPhone app, Next took the checkbook model and turned it on its head, collecting your transactions and displaying them as a gorgeous picture of your financial trends. Now, developer noidentity has brought the spending tracker to the iPad as its own paid companion, and while the minimal concept works well enough on the larger screen, we have a tough time recommending a double-dip here.
Early adopters of the new Mac Pro have been waiting with bated breath to find out how much Dell plans to charge for its new 4K monitor, which the company promised last month would retail for under $1,000. Turns out, it will be cheaper than expected.
Want to know what Apple's upcoming "budget" iPhone 5C looks like? BGR snagged some allegedly legitimate high quality photos of it from Sonny Dickson, which means we're no longer stuck with blurry shots that seem like they were taken by the same people who always happen to see the Sasquatch and alien spaceships.
If BusinessInsider is to be believed, we still don't have any concrete idea as to when the so-called "budget" iPhone will ship, but we at least have a name for it. According to what the publication identifies as an in-the-know source who doesn't actually work for Apple, the long-anticipated phone will be called the iPhone 5C. Here's to hoping that the "C" doesn't just stand for "cheap."
Now that the dust surrounding iOS 7 and the new Mac Pro is finally starting to settle, the Apple rumor mill is starting to turn its attention to other subjects--most notably, the so-called "budget" iPhone. With the recent posting of a video to YouTube by Michael Kukielka of DetroitBORG, as reported by MacRumors, those rumors are starting to assume physical form.
Keep in mind that we're still in the realm of rumor here, but it's looking more and more like there might be truth to those reports of a plastic iPhone aimed at emerging markets after all. We've yet to get any kind of confirmation on this issue from Apple itself, but according to Japanese blog Macotakara, we might be seeing a limited test run of 1,000 units in June, and in a plethora of colors to boot. If that goes well, we might start seeing them in stores later this year.
In preparing this year’s 20 Under $20 list, we loved the idea of presenting 20 killer Mac apps you might not know about — 20 is such a round, pleasant number, and would hopefully let us find something for everyone. But $20 per app might not seem like the bargain-basement price that it used to, even just back in the summer of 2011 when we did our last 20 Under $20 feature.
But guess what? Most of these polished, stable, user-friendly, and utterly useful applications don’t come anywhere close to a full Andrew Jackson, anyway. Four of them are free, and only two cost over $10. We thought about calling it “18 Mac Apps Under $10 and Also Two That Are More Than $10 But Still Less Than $20, and By the Way, Four Are Free,” but that’s just too long, wouldn’t you agree
Budgeting isn't fun. Crunching numbers and tracking expenses is dull, tedious work we try to avoid at all costs, but it's a necessary fact of life — especially when you've got a couple of car bills and a mortgage. BUDGT understands our pain. With a delightfully simple interface and deceptively powerful money-managing tools, BUDGT will keep a close watch on your daily expenses — so long as you're willing to spend a little time with it each day.
There are few feelings that will make a person's heart drop quicker than the dreaded swipe of the credit card that is met with a message of "Declined." If you're used to managing your budget the traditional way, you no doubt have a filing cabinet full of unorganized bank statements, pre-approved loan offers, and receipts that you can't recall why you saved. While there are a plethora of financial management tools available for your iOS device, no one has yet to come close to the Mint.com Personal Finance app.
