Dobot App Review – A Free Alternative To Digit

I’ve been a Digit user for over two years now and during that time, I’ve been able to save more than $8,000 into my Digit account without even noticing it. When combined with Qapital, I’ve had a great microsaving system worked out – Qapital rounds up all of my purchases while Digit sweeps out any excess money that I have in my checking account. This microsaving system has been a great way to make sure that every dollar I earn gets a job of some sort.

Unfortunately, Digit recently announced that it would charge $2.99 per month in order to use its services. As a result, I’ve decided to drop Digit and make the move over to a new app I found called Dobot. So far, the Dobot app looks like the perfect alternative for folks looking for a free savings app with all of the same functionality as Digit.

Job Spotter App Review: Earn Extra Money By Taking Pictures Of Hiring Signs

In last month’s side hustle report, I wrote about how I made a little over $25 taking pictures of hiring signs using an app called Job Spotter. Since I didn’t make a ton of money from it, I didn’t expect a lot of people to care too much about the app. But, I was pleasantly surprised at how many people asked for more info about the Job Spotter app. Goes to show that the hustle doesn’t stop around here, no matter how small it might seem.

Those of you who follow Financial Panther know that I’m all about trying to monetize things I’m already doing. It’s why I do bike deliveries when I’m trying to get some exercise, or why I do some dog sitting in my spare time. I walk my dog pretty regularly and I bike around town a lot. While I’m doing this, I probably pass by countless stores and restaurants that are looking to hire people. When I found out there was an app that could help me make some money while I’m already walking around town, I thought it made sense to give it a try.

Qapital Review – A Free App To Automate Your Savings

My goal here at the Financial Panther is to help you improve your financial life, and one easy way to do this is by taking advantage of all the new FinTech apps out there. The only problem with the world of FinTech is that there are a ton of apps. It’s sometimes hard to figure out what’s useful and what isn’t. Luckily for you, I happen to be a pretty big FinTech geek and I go through dozens of apps every year. Why wade through all the apps when I can do it for you?

About a year and half ago, I found an amazing app called Qapital. If you’re the type of person who likes apps that help you save your spare change, then this is the app for you…

Prism App Review – An Awesome Free Bill Management App

I’m a big fintech geek and there are some really awesome apps out there. You’ve probably already read reviews about some of the big players in the fintech world such as Mint and Personal Capital. I thought it’d be helpful to share reviews about some of the lesser known fintech apps that I personally use and that I think might be useful to you. One such app is Prism.

While I’m a big fan of automating your finances, I still like being able to look at my bills before I pay them. There’s just something comforting to me about being able to make sure that my bill looks right before I pay it. It’s something I’ve done my entire life and I guess I’m just stubborn…
