What this app does: Organizes and plans out your debt. Tells you HOW long it will take to get out of debt with some basic monthly details. Up to FIVE (5) debts supported.
This app uses the Payment Strategy of paying off the "Lowest Balance First". Often recommended by experts as the best strategy.
Note: Debt Planner Pro ($1.99 USD) now includes Payment Strategies, Unlimited Debt Entries & Monthly Payment Reminders. The Pro Version is also ad-free and contains better tablet support. You may backup your debts in the free version before upgrading to the Pro and restoring (in Settings).
HOW TO USE THIS APP: Rather than giving us a lump-sum payment amount, you will decide how much to pay in the first round of payments (per card). We will then take those numbers and make the needed adjustments as time goes on. In this way, you have greater flexibility to manage over your debt. And can also play with the numbers to tweak your own plan.
Also: This app is currently set to work with the US decimal system. Other formats: Enter at your own risk! We hope to standardize in the future. (To be safe, anyone may use the app, but you may need to use whole numbers if you do not use the system it is designed for).
Debt Planner will provide you with a quick, simple way of calculating different aspects of your current debt including the time it will take to pay off, the total interest fees over the lifetime of the debt, your current APR fee, and more! Whether it is credit cards, auto loans, personal loans, you can calculate it!
It will also factor in potential balance transfer fees and promotional rates as well! The app will then store your numbers for later use.
Calculations in this app are very accurate. Remember, if you feed it bogus numbers, you might get a bogus answer! It can only contain so many built-in protections!
Disclaimer: Debt Planner will simply give an approximate amount of time (in months) that you will be debt-free. There are many real world factors that will put you at a different end-date. In order to meet the formulated date, you must try to pay as close to your specified monthly payment goal as possible.
