    You should also add Wells Fargo has an app just like BofA and that the Mint App on the iPhone is another great management tool.

    My husband has ADD so we wanted to get something akin to a smartphone to help him be organized. But I’m happy to say that we found a much more frugal solution: iPod Touch.

    It has all the functionality of an iPhone, minus the actual phone. Meanwhile, we don’t have to pay $30-50 a month on top of cell minutes. Of course, it doesn’t get web access just anywhere, but there are plenty of wifi spots to be had out in the world. There are tons of great, free apps. Also, of course, we got it with rewards points so it is completely free to us!
