Hektor is a savings app that helps you develop a habit for saving by automatically transferring money from your bank account (via a debit card) to your Hektor savings account.
You can set rules and goals to start the process. With AI, Hektor can detect that you have saved money from say, skipping a Uber. The set amount of money you would have spent would be automatically transferred into your Hektor savings account (savings are held in CIMB Bank, Singapore). The AI then splits the savings intelligently into the goals you created.
The shortcomings of this app are that you don’t earn any interest on your Hektor savings and not everyone is comfortable putting money in an app, even if the money technically goes to CIMB Bank, Singapore.
We dare argue that everyone should have a budgeting app in their phone. But with so many choices, it’s up to you which one you prefer. Spendio is a spending tracker for iPhone and Apple Watch and it’s one of the best there is.
Track your spending with a clean and modern interface, create goals, and manage multiple wallets of different currencies if you like.
For Apple Watch users, you can tell your watch how much you have spent and the language processing algorithm will fill in the transaction type, amount, and category for you. How neat is that!

Seedly aims to be a one-stop app for Singaporeans to manage their finances. What sets it apart from other personal finances apps is its ability to sync and import transactions from banks like DBS, POSB, OCBC, UOB, Standard Chartered, Citibank, American Express and credit cards.
In other words, you can view your account balances and expenses from various bank accounts and cards all in one place. While the app has room for improvement, it is one to watch.
