BillGuard 4.0 for iPhone brings spending analytics, savings alerts, and more

BillGuard is not only an app, but an entire service that helps you monitor your spending, be alerted of suspicious charges, and so much more. The BillGuard 4.0 update has just hit and brings even more features to help you manage your money including in-depth spending analytics, alerts for savings at your favorite places, and more.

Spending analytics is a feature I've wanted to see in BillGuard for quite a while and I have to say it was worth the wait. The charts and graphs are gorgeous and easy to decipher. You can compare your spending habits to previous months, compare categories, and break down into sectors to see what months you're spending more in a specific category.

Another feature I've been dying to see is a way to quickly mark all transactions as clear. Sometimes when I forget to open BillGuard for a few days or weeks, checking off transactions can be a long process. BillGuard 4.0 remedies this by letting you clear everything in one single swipe. For those of you with a lot of transactions, you'll appreciate this feature!

The BillGuard app itself is free and you can monitor up to three cards and absolutely no cost to you. Monitor up to 10 cards for a one time in-app purchase of $9.99. For me, BillGuard is quickly becoming the only app I need to manage my finances.
