Best app to keep track of receipts on your iPhone

Your iPhone is a great place to store receipts and there are lots of apps in the App Store that offer this feature. Whether you need to keep track of business expenses to turn in to your employer, want to keep track of receipts as a self employed individual, or just want to know where your money is going, OneReceipt is a great option.

Not only can OneReceipt import receipts in many different ways, but let you categorize them in ways that makes it easiest for you to manage them.

OneReceipt allows you to import receipts in a few ways. As you'd expect, you can take pictures of receipts and categorize them accordingly by tag and grouping. You'll basically take a photo of the receipt and OneReceipt will process it. The clearer and more close up the photo of the receipt is, the better the results.

The second way is by email import. You can link either a Gmail or Yahoo email account and OneReceipt will automatically import all of your receipts from your inboxes without the need for you to do anything. You can then tap into any of the invoices OneReceipt has imported and view the items on them and the grand total. You can also view the original receipt whether it be an iTunes receipt, Paypal receipt, or any other online merchant. OneReceipt pulls in great copies of the receipts automatically so if you've ever had it emailed to you, no need to keep a paper copy filed away.

The main menu of OneReceipt gives you a brief overview of all the receipts you currently have stored within the app. You can also add receipts from here as well as search for existing ones. If you don't have a physical receipt anymore and didn't have one emailed to you, you can also add it manually by adding the merchant name, amount, and tagging it accordingly.

No one likes to keep receipts laying around forever or digging through their email to find a receipt when they need it. This is what makes OneReceipt so great. It pretty much does all the heavy lifting for you and when you need to access a specific receipt, you can launch one app and find it with a simple search. Whether you're trying to track receipts for expense and tax purposes or just want to make sure nothing important gets lost in your inbox, OneReceipt is a great solution.
