  1. Personal Capital man. It is the best for net worth tracking. I also like Seeking Alpha for the articles. Although maybe I am a little biased now since I see my articles pop up on there from time to time haha.

      Hey Daze

      Ive heard about personal capital before but thought it was us only. I should check it out.

      Yeah ive seen your articles!
      Haha cheers Daze

  2. Hey Rob, I here so much about Personal Capital like Daze mentions. I don’t use it, but want to give it a try. Congrats on quitting smoking. I am sure it was difficult. Tom

  3. I use the podcast addict app too on Android. Most of the podcasts that I’m subscribed to are on Spotify but there’s a few others that haven’t made the move yet so Podcast Addict is useful for those.

  4. Hey Rob. Great post – mobile technology is simply amazing. I am a trial attorney, and I am on the road all the time. I practice almost exclusively from my iPhone, using various apps and my firms email interface. The technology has really made me much more productive, and I make much better use of my time

    In terms of finance apps, I use the apps provided by my brokerage firms, and online banking apps to do all of my trades and transactions. Each of these apps offers a lot of very detailed information and analytical statistics.

    I have tried both Personal Capital and Mint. I ended up not staying with either one, because I got spooked by the idea of one company having all of my passwords. Also, I could not link all of my accounts with either service. I think they are good, but they still have limitations.

    If you don’t have Venmo, you should try it. It’s a great way to transfer money among friends and people you know.

      Hey Fire

      Its pretty crazy how much a certain tech item can almost give you a unfair advantage…. I think I’m with you on that call. I wouldn’t like the idea of one site having all my passwords and access to all my info. I guess in that regard I will stay old school and fill out the net worth forms myself.

      Cheers man!

  5. PCI –

    Cool ways to share – the get rich or die smoking is pretty cool, I’ll have to share that with a few family members and friends.

    Like you, I like to use the apps from my financial institutions to do my banking. I rarely go into the branch now. Most of my banking, I either try to do it with my app or online banking. It’s a huge time saver.

    I love how you can deposit a cheque with a picture now! It was fun to go to the bank and deposit the cheques manually though, gave a good excuse to get out the door. Congratulations on quitting smoking- that’s a hard feat to accomplish– I hear it’s harder than quitting drinking!

    • Rob says:

      Haha i dunno have never tried to quit drinking! I love having some cold ones with the neighbours….

      Its true going to the bank was nice to socialize and get ya out of the house.

      Cheers!
