Lemon App, The Sweetest Way To Manage All Of Your Purchases

If you are anything like me and have a super hectic, sometimes scatterbrain lifestyle, a little bit of organizational skills can go a long way. I find that unfortunately my finances are sometimes victim to neglect and I lose track of where and how much money I am spending. Recently I came across a free app in the Android Market called Lemon, it keeps track of how much money you spend and even keeps an image of your receipts. Instead of cramming a bunch of receipts in your wallet, just send them to Lemon where they will be instantly filed and organized for future reference. It’s that easy!

The Lemon app also provides a lemon.com email address that you can enter when making online purchases. When a receipt is emailed after your purchase is complete, it automatically filters out the relevant purchasing data and sends it to your Lemon account for safe keeping. You can even snap a picture of your paper receipts with your Android phone as long as it has an auto focus camera. The app will then search for text within the image and makes them searchable via character recognition. Data is compiled into handy reports that keep you in tune with your finances and provides visual graphs that plot your spending habits.

For disorganized folks like me, the app makes saving receipts a cinch, turning them into useful bits of data that helps manage your finances. Besides, you will never have to frantically search for a receipt when you need to make a return or file taxes. You can keep clutter to a minimum and prevent your e-receipts from piling up in your inbox. It is just one simple tool that I have found to be beneficial and I hope you do to.

You can take the next step in organizing your finances by downloading the free Lemon app from the Android Market, or you can focus your phone’s barcode reader on the QR code below. Be sure to let us know what you think and hopefully this proves to make your life a little more organized.

    I agree with Shine – this is a very useful app.  The free basic version is great (scanning and saving receipt images for the future).  The premium version is even better (it actually reads your receipt and parses the individual items).  Unfortunately, the premium version costs more than it is worth in my opinion.  Nonetheless – the free version is well worth the download!

    We always have problems with our finances because we usually spend more than we earn. This apps could solve that problem since we can see a record of all our expenses and be aware that we are already overspending.
