Pageonce Personal Finance (free)
Pageonce for Windows Phone 7 (click to open with Zune)Pageonce Personal Finance is a nice handy app for quick access to your financial assets on Windows Phone 7. The UI is appealing and elegant with pleasant colors and well integrated with metro (not all the good WP7 apps have gotten this right yet).

Overtime, your balance on the institution will plot a graph – useful feature that will show you if you are spending more than your income!

You can also add bills to the account. Pageonce does a great job in talking to all sorts of utilities, from insurance, to energy, to phone companies seamlessly: your statements and bills are always easily readable.

We would have appreciated some advanced features such as the ability to ignore specific accounts in our financial institution as well as the current status of the stocks in our portfolio.

The app is also supported by the web site that can be used to add more accounts, or view in more details your transactions. Overall this site is not advanced like, say, with planning, budgeting and review of your past transactions, but it does a decent job in help you understanding how your finances are doing.

The site is also trying to integrate other types of accounts that don’t really belong, like your twitter or email accounts; this is not convincing: we don’t think about twitting our balance when we look at our bank account…

Overall, Pageonce is the best personal financial app we have tried on WP7 so far. Don’t hesitate to try it out, it is free
