App Watch: Mobile app is right on the money

  • Masareef’s founders, Nawaf Hareeri and Nour Ahmadein, developed the app to help users monitor their personal expenses and income.

A Saudi mobile app, Masareef, that allows users to keep tabs on where their money goes every month, is being downloaded every two minutes.

This smart, efficient application is ideal for those who struggle to rein in their spending and end up with empty pockets halfway through the month.

Masareef’s founders, Nawaf Hareeri and Nour Ahmadein, developed the app to help users monitor their personal expenses and income.

Using the app is easy, with a tutorial set up after the launch offering concise instructions.

Simply enter the date your salary arrives, the amount you are paid and how much you’re hoping to save and the app will do the rest. It will also separate your bills, groceries, daily spending and other payments for the month.

The app offers daily reminders on how much you’ve spent and what bills need paying.

Users can also set up short- or long-term financial goals, such as buying a new phone or a planning a travel adventure, and keep tabs on how much has been saved to accomplish it.

Masareef saves users’ time, and helps those with short memories keep tabs on their payments.

AppWatch: A Saudi app that caters to all

We all get consumed by the Eid-shopping monster telling us to buy everything in sight. The trick is to not let it.

This Ramadan, my Eid shopping companion was Noon, a Saudi app catering to all your shopping needs. It has a wide selection of products, including clothes, makeup, electronics and perfumes. 

Since not every Saudi has a credit card, the online store makes shopping much easier by implementing a “pay in cash upon delivery” service.

Making use of mind-blowing offers, I made sure to restock on all my favorite perfumes before Eid.

A major upside to the app is how affordable everything is, and I was delighted to find some makeup brands that are not available at shopping centers in Jeddah, such as SIGMA and e.l.f.

What I love most about Noon is that there is always a daily deal or sale going on, so make sure you check these out.
