Need something on the go to keep track of all those business expenses?  Here is out list of the top 10 business apps:

  1. Expensify – Consistently voted one of the best expense apps, Expensify has more features than any other similar app. Besides the usual gamut of expense management via OCR of receipt photos and emails, it even has a GPS mileage tracker.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Price – Free
  2. Xpenditure – A tough competitor to Expensify, Xpenditure boasts a superior OCR system and cloud-based web integration while delivering most of the same features. It also incorporates business card management but cannot handle reimbursements through the app.
    • Platforms – Android
    • Price – $5/month
  3. iXpenseit – A very manageable app that features a clean, easy-to-read dashboard, iXpenseit categorizes expenses handily and is excellent for day-to-day budget management for small to medium businesses. It lacks sophistication in the Reports department on which some users rely heavily.
    • Platfroms – iOS only
    • Cost – $5
  4. inDinero – The slickest feature of this free app is its integration of various bank accounts, including credit card balances into a visual depiction of your financial state of affairs. Monitoring and controlling expenses in real time is made very simple but the app lacks the range of features common to others on this list.
    • Platforms – iOS only
    • Cost – Free
  5. Shoeboxed – Shoeboxed also has a GPS mileage tracker built in like all the better expense management apps but its best feature is its mail-in service which gives you the ability to have the company scan and enter receipt details for you. This is a paid add-on for an otherwise feature-rich free app.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Cost – Free, $10/month for add-ons
  6. BizXpense Tracker – Most expense management apps have a steep learning curve but BizXpense Tracker is one of only a handful that provide training that simplifies its already remarkable ease of use. The lack of web integration may deter those who believe in backing-up constantly.
    • Platforms – iOS only
    • Cost – $5
  7. Smart Receipts – This bare bones app is ideal for anyone looking for basic features without sacrificing a large amount of storage on their phone. Its OCR works well to create tabulated reports while the ability to manage multiple currencies will be a godsend for frequent travelers and those dealing with international clientele.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Cost – Free
  8. Deductr – Deductr lacks OCR but makes up for it with an excellent online management system and photo and email receipts. Packed with additional features like a GPS mileage tracker and the ability to automatically monitor credit card transactions. Its excellent support package will be helpful to those not very technologically adept.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Cost – Basic is free, Pro is $20/month
  9. Taxbot – Full compatibility with accounting software like ADP, QuickBooks and FreshBooks, along with contact management which comparatively few expense management apps offer, make Taxbot a versatile partner for your business. Its phone support and training program will have your team and you up and running in no time.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Cost – Free
  10. Receipts Pro – Receipts Pro and Expensify are the only two apps on this list that offer mobile budgeting tools. Featuring a currency converter, mileage tracker and compatibility across all the major accounting software suites, this app is excellent for the international traveler or business. Be mindful that it lacks both OCR capability and web storage, though.
    • Platforms – iOS and Android
    • Cost – $10
