What is the best Financial Tracking Software for the Blackberry (8320) regardless if it is free or you have to pay for it.

TIA,

You might want to distinguish between the likes of a stock-tracking application or a record keeping app like for checking, etc., rather than simply a financial tracking software.

Thanks.

Thank you for your replies, I am more interested in record keeping for personal use.

Thank you for the link, I actually saw this thread in my search and currently using Jabplite. Still thinking of investing in Ascendo Money.

I use Ascendo Money as a checkbook register. You can have multiple accounts in that, and if you have Quicken, you can export Quicken data, and import that export into Ascendo Money's PC register, which syncs with the Blackberry. I started using it that way, but in the end, I merely started to enter purchases directly on the blackberry via Ascendo Money, whether the item had posted to my debit account or not. That way, I see what is reality.

As for stocks, I'm afraid there isn't a great solution out there. However, I do have a stock tracker which is very basic, but I have to say it gets the job done, all though it could use improvement. That application is called, MobFinance US. The benefit of this application is that you can organize stocks as portfolios. You can enter the paid price and number of shares you hold for each stock in the portfolio. When you open the portfolio, you update all in the portfolio, and it tells you stock by stock what the market trade is for that stock at that time, and calculates your profit or loss, and totals all the stocks in the portfolio this way so you see the value of the whole portfolio.

It's very simple though. Background is simple white, and the developer for some crazy reason thought it was neats to scroll the portfolio calculation at the bottom from right to left, which is annoying if you ask me my opinion. No setting to turn off that scrolling that shouts, hey look at me, hey look at me.

If there is a hole in the blackberry software 3rd party offerings, it's stock tracking. Developers will hate for me for saying this but, there is no great stock application for the BB. They are all at best, barely capable of doing what we want at the very minimal level, which is to at least to see a list of stocks, and their current trade value.

That all being said, it sure beats trying to read the mobile version of the Wall Street Journal to find your portfolio. So I say that no matter what it's better by far than not having the application. Hopefully in the future, the applications will get better. Really, just some cosmetic changes would be welcomed. When you see the software screen shots, they are not the blackberry screens. So it is a little misleading. The screen shots they show are clearly for some other device. Unless they updated it.

Best,

Alex

I did a review on trackIt - Expense Edition. It should be on page 2 or 3 of the BBF reviews section. I love it.
