The world is constantly evolving, at a faster rate than ever before in the history of the world.
A few centuries ago accounting wasn’t as sophisticated as it is today, but now an accountant can operate for months on a mobile phone with the right apps.
It is no longer about how hard, but how well.
Accounting is no longer about sitting in an office and writing down reports on higher education notebooks, but you can now have the world on your smartphone, in your pocket.
If you’re an accountant who wants to move forward, here are 5 smart android apps you should start using today.
1. Mint.com Personal Finance App
Size: Varies, depending on the device

One major aspect of accounting that needs a lot of focus is household financing, and there is no better app out there than EEBA.
One major feature I love about this app is the sync feature; it allows you to sync your data with other mobile devices or the internet. This app is especially useful if you want to sync accounting data with a client, or if you’re doing accounting data for join partners and don’t want to make your report separately.
Some major features of the EEBA app are:
