Clarity Money, a personal finance manager that helps users save money, launches on Android

It can be a pain juggling all of your monthly expenses and credit card balances, especially if you have more than one bank account to track. That’s why earlier this year an app called Clarity Money launched (exclusively) on iOS, hoping to make it easier to manage bills and income. At the time, the company hinted at plans to eventually release the app on other platforms. That’s why Clarity Money is now launching both on Google Play and as a standalone web application.

Clarity Money works similarly to Mint and other personal finance apps. But in addition to being able to link a user’s bank accounts and automatically categorize their expenses – something most personal finance apps already do – Clarity Money is also trying to save its users money by helping them take smarter financial decisions.

It’s no secret that companies are big fans of monthly and yearly subscription plans: people are far more likely to continue paying for a service through a subscription model than they are s ‘they had to make a conscious decision to pay every month. By removing the friction and thought process involved, purchases effectively become opt-out instead of opt-in. This makes it easy to rack up hundreds of dollars in monthly payments, which is why Clarity Money presents users with an overview of all their subscription services, allowing them to cancel any right from the app – and potentially saving a significant amount of money.

Clarity Money can also recommend better credit card deals based on a user’s spending habits, and even identify negotiable bills and automatically attempt to obtain a lower rate. Using these methods, last year’s 1,000 beta users were able to save an average of 0 through Clarity Money.




The application itself is quite simple and easy to configure. It’s also completely free to download and use (with no in-app purchases either), so there’s no reason not to download it and check it out for yourself.

Edit: As a few readers have pointed out, the app is unfortunately US-only. As someone who has just moved from Europe to the United States, I know all too well the frustration of not having access to a product or service due to my geographic location.
