Financial apps are available on the iPhone

People who struggle to work out their finances may find there are "lots of benefits" to selling a mobile phone and snapping up an Apple iPhone.

Dan Grabham, deputy editor at TechRadar, says the increasing number of financial apps for the revolutionary device undoubtedly brings a series of advantages.

While he is keen to point out these should not totally rule out the need for expert guidance, they can be used effectively.

"We're still mystified by tax and national insurance and all these systems that people don't understand. So anything that can help to broaden our knowledge is good," Mr Grabham notes.

Apple's iTunes store has thousands of apps available to download, including those in categories such as entertainment, factual and games, as well as finance.

Among the most recent is a tool from Arbor Media that helps people to accurately calculate the amount of income tax and National Insurance contributions they must pay.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "Accessing information becomes a whole lot easier with iPhones. If you think this type of technology would make your life easier, why not trade-in your old phone for cash?"
