Best personal investment apps for iPhone: Acorns Investing

Acorns is a brand new investment service that's geared towards younger generations that may not feel comfortable with big brokerages or have a lot to invest up front. Link your credit and debit accounts and Acorns can "round up" each purchase to the nearest dollar. The roundup amount is then split among six different funds and invested for you. Think of it as a way to save your virtual spare change, but better since you're investing it and earning money on it. You can choose how aggressive you'd like to be and have the ability to deposit and withdraw money whenever you'd like. The fees Acorns charges are also substantially lower than what any traditional brokerage would charge.

If you are just getting started with investing and have longer term savings goals, Acorns is a great way to make money on what would be spare change.

If you have investments in multiple countries, Shares 2 can even give you your position in whatever currency you'd like.
