Between credit cards, student loans, IOUs and personal loans, the amount of debt present these days is higher than ever.

As technology has evolved, more and more people have been able to take advantage of tools that can clarify their debt situations and help them keep track of what they owe. If you want to be more financially responsible but need a bit of help, then continue reading to learn more about three Android apps designed to empower your ability to tackle that debt.

IOU – Debt Manager

This can be a bit embarrassing even if we are transparent about our situations, but it no longer has to be something that is difficult to monitor. There are many apps that can help users track their loans and IOUs, and the IOU – Debt Manager app is one of these solutions. Available on Google Play for free, IOU – Debt Manager allows users to create individual entries for borrowed money and track the progress of repayment.

Users can also add photos to each item in order to remember more clearly what the expense in question comprised. With options to categorize debts by lender or by type, you can stay on top of all of your expenses via the Debt Tracker app.


Debt Consolidation Pro

If you want to find a solution for all of the current debt you possess but need a bit of assistance, then the Debt Consolidation Pro app may be just the thing for you.
