We just got this Press Release from Nova-Box about a new app they have out called, "piglet." Looks like a pretty neat budget app to help you keep track of your budgets. Take a peek at the release below and let me know what you think!
You can visit iTunes to preview and/or purchase the app.
Piglet is a simple app for iOS that allows you to keep track of your daily and monthly budget. You can setup a monthly allowance, set your budget and Piglet will calculate the rest for you.
Piglet does one thing and it does it well: tell you how much you can spend in a 100% hassle-free way.
How does it work?
Input your expenses and your income and Piglet takes care of all the heavy-lifting. Piglet calculates your daily, weekly and monthly budget, so that you instantly know how much you can spend without going over the top. If you overspend, Piglet helps you get back into your monthly budget by re-calculating your debt once a day so that you can keep your personal finances in check.
What Piglet doesn’t do
Piglet doesn't do elaborate pie-charts, mortgage calculation or tax optimization arcana, nor it is a facsimile replication of your bank account balance (chances are, your banking establishment already provide you with this information).
Daily & weekly budget - Piglet automatically calculates how much you can spend each day and each week so that you won't have to ask yourself "how much can I spend today?" ever again.
No Setup - Launch it, add your income and you're good to go. Just add your expenses as you go and everything else is calculated automatically.
Universal - Buy it once and you can run it on any of your iOS devices at the same.
iCloud Sync - If you have an iPhone in your pocket and an iPad on your coffee table Piglet syncs itself to all of your devices over iCloud so all of your gadgets stay up-to-date. Even if you don't have multiple iOS devices, iCloud sync allows you to have everything safely backed up in real time.
Clean User Interface - Rows and rows of numbers are somewhat overwhelming. Piglet was designed with extra care to provide a clean and comprehensive user interface. Each time you add an operation, progress bars and calendars animate themselves so that you understand instantly how it impacts your budget.

Ace Hardware, the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry, and The Weather Channel announce the launch of "Restore Your Outdoors" -- an initiative pairing the personal, knowledgeable, and helpful service that customers have come to expect when shopping at their neighborhood Ace store with the trusted local weather knowledge they depend on from The Weather Channel.
As part of this program, beginning this week, homeowners from across the country can enter for a chance to win $15,000 in Ace gift cards.
In addition to the sweepstakes, Ace's alliance with The Weather Channel provides homeowners with the tips and tools they need to complete their outdoor home maintenance tasks. With the help of Ace's Home Expert, Lou Manfredini, and Ace's Design Expert, Julie Richard, "Restore Your Outdoors" is designed to provide easy-to-execute suggestions for homes across the country, including how updating and maintaining your outdoor living areas can make your home more inviting, how top brands like Craftsman® products can help you maintain your home, and how to use inspiration from the outdoors when choosing paint colors.
"Many homeowners have a list of home maintenance projects they've thought about, but never taken on, simply because they don't know where to begin," said Manfredini. "Together with The Weather Channel we're able to not only offer one lucky winner the opportunity to update their outdoor space, but also provide our more personal kind of helpful to homeowners across the country."
Throughout May, consumers are invited to enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win $15,000 in Ace gift cards. Additionally, each week during the promotion, Ace will be giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky winner. Official rules and details can be found online on Ace Hardware's Facebook page or The Weather Channel brand's Facebook page.
"With the weather finally starting to warm up, we know people are excited about getting outside and enjoying their outdoor space. The weather forecast is crucial," said Randi Stipes, vice president of client solutions at The Weather Company. "Ace and The Weather Channel both understand the importance of providing the necessary information to consumers to help them make planning decisions, with a little inspiration along the way. The alliance allows us to deliver on our goal to help weather enthusiasts live their best life outdoors, while also helping highlight Ace's commitment to being The Helpful Place in your neighborhood, both inside and outside its store walls."
Throughout the months of May and June, four makeovers hosted by Manfredini and Richard will air on The Weather Channel as well as appear on a "Restore Your Outdoors" tab on Ace and The Weather Channel brand's Facebook pages. For more details and official rules on "Restore Your Outdoors," visit www.facebook.com/acehardware.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. OPEN TO LEGAL RESIDENTS IN ALL 50 STATES AND D.C. WHO ARE 18 YEARS AND OLDER AND HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Sweepstakes begins at 12:00:00 p.m. EDT on 5/1/13 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. EDT on 5/31/13.
Ace gift cards can be used for almost anything at participating Ace stores and use of prize is not restricted to outdoor materials (but your backyard will love you for it). Sponsor: The Weather Channel LLC, 300 Interstate North Parkway SE, Atlanta, GA 30339.
