Would that be one of those 3 gigabyte, digital red crayons?

Big Chief tablets! Now, you're speaking my language. But digital crayons, do they really make them? Can't imagine that....but then again I don't get that "cloud" business either! So much to learn, so little time.

We have kept track of all our spending since we began RVing. In the early days we used Excel, now we use our smart phone. Presently we use Spending Tracker, a free Android app. It allows us to immediately enter what we spend in categories we define. It automatically totals everything and displays them by category.

As to bill paying we have paid our bills from our phone or computer since before we started RVing. It's great for on the road, written checks are rare and usually gifts. We do not use public wi-fi hotspot locations for banking but rather our own hotspot. We have never had a problem.

We use Bank of America, primarily because they are everywhere and seem to maintain a watchful eye on our credit cards saving us from a few fraudulent charges and immediately replacing our cards when it happens.
Norm,
How do you go about sitting up your on wi-fi hotspot? Is it hard to do?
Thanks for any help!

Carl, most newer smart phones have an option in the general settings that allow you to set your phone up and use its data plan as a personal Hot spot to use with your iPad or computer. The phone and your computer/ipad connect via bluetooth - assuming they both have that capability.

Carl,
As Carol wrote most smart phones can be set up as a Hotspot. I don't use our smartphones that way because we have a dedicated Hotspot.

Our Hotspot has an unlimited data plan and is no longer available from Verizon. The plans now available charge by the gigabyte, at least from Verizon.

It was easy to set up.
