iControl app review: better financial control

Reviews

Introduction

Making a real name for itself in the Finance category of the App Store is iControl - Mobile Banking & Budget for iPhone and iPad, a fantastic utility that you can use on a daily basis to enjoy extensive control of your finances thanks to support for PayPal and a number of worldwide banks.

I really like the idea behind this app and it definitely seems as if the developer has done a decent job integrating various banking services into a single interface.

In the interest of full disclosure I should point out that I only use one bank along with PayPal but I’ve not come across any glaring issues so far and would definitely recommend considering this app, especially if you manage multiple accounts across numerous financial institutions.

Not only does this app allow you to see a detailed overview of your accounts with recent transactions and so on; you can also set up standing orders, direct debits, scheduled payments, and more from directly within the interface.
