Loqbox Learn: Free apps to manage your money

Jun 17, 2020

In our blog on how to budget better, we gave you some crucial money management tips. With those in mind, we wanted to share our favourite free money management apps that’ll help you watch your spending and keep track of your finances.

Why use a money management app?

Money management apps are a great example of how a little help from technology can make a big difference when it comes to managing your money. There are plenty out there, but here are three of our favourites to help you take control of your money:


Plum is an AI (artificial intelligence) assistant that helps grow your savings. Link it to your bank account and it automatically puts money aside for you – little by little, but often. It can help you save money without even realising. It’s free, and takes less than two minutes to get started.

Money Dashboard

A multi award-winning money management app that helps hundreds of thousands of people master their money, no matter who they bank with. Money Dashboard lets you see where you’re spending, set budgets to help you achieve your financial goals, and plan your future finances using projected balances.


This AI chatbot gives you real-time information about your spending and savings. Cleo works as your own handy assistant: giving you answers to your questions, as well as useful budget breakdowns. Added quizzes and games make this app a fun way to engage with your finances.

We choose our partners very carefully, and will only suggest financial products we truly believe will work for you. If you sign up for free to Plum using the above links, we’ll get a small commission for sending you their way. This helps us continue to improve Loqbox and keep our service free. Money Dashboard and Cleo aren’t official partners. We’re just big fans.

Of course, another great way to improve your finances is by growing your credit score with Loqbox. It also helps you save and, along with a new account for those savings, is completely free.
