As technology continues to improve, one of the areas that we see the most consistent development is in cell phones. This is because, over the last ten years or so, cell phones have become so commonplace that nearly every person on the planet has one (we are currently at about 5 billion or so).
And because it reaches so many people on a regular basis, that makes cell phone technology one of the main driving factors behind developing certain technologies. With that many people accessing and using technology, there will always be a need to make it better and more cost-effective.
Speaking of cost-effective, there are alternative carriers out there to the major networks that provide the same kind of great service for far cheaper than the major companies. Check out H2O wireless or any Mint Mobile review and you will see that the differences between the major providers and the alternative ones are slim.
This allows people to streamline their lives thanks to everything that can be done on a cell phone. One area that has changed substantially is in the management of personal finances and investing.
Banking and Investment Have Changed
It seems almost archaic to think about it, but there was a time where you had to go to the bank on a regular basis. Now, it almost seems weird to have to go to the bank for any reason, especially when you can do nearly all of your banking on your phone.
Most banks now offer mobile apps that allow you to check in on your balances, transfer funds from one account to another, see recent activity, and even make mobile deposits by scanning images of your check. That means no need to go to the ATM or in the bank to make a deposit.
Even cooler is that we can now manage our investments as well. There are a litany of apps that allow for small portions of shares to be traded the same way full shares do. That’s in addition to being able to access investment portfolios for real-time updates.
Keeping track of your money, making smarter investments, understanding where your money is and where it is going has never been easier. This means keeping finances in check without having to resort to a huge paper trail or trying to track down receipts.
Keep more of your money by investing it properly or tracking your transactions in a far more efficient manner thanks to cell phones.
