Whether it’s for tax purposes, business expense management, or personal budget interest, holding onto physical receipts is a bit of a hassle and chore. But luckily, with advancements in image recognition and financial apps, you can now keep track of your receipts using your smartphone.
From general note-keeping apps with receipt scanning features to dedicated expense-tracking apps, here are six of the best apps to scan, track, and manage your receipts.
Expensify is one of the most popular receipt management apps thanks to its financial report and expense submission features. You can capture receipts through the app, plus import your credit card and generate mileage reports. You can submit these reports through the app by simply entering the recipient’s email address.
One drawback of the app is how long it takes to extract information from images after they’ve been captured. These scans can sometimes take a few hours, which detracts from the convenience factor of doing the text-recognition scan in the first place. The company says that this is because it prioritizes accuracy over speed—but other apps can scan accurately and take much less time.
