Be Debt Free – Be Debt Free is a unique app from PicsAlive that allows you to input information about your debts so you can see what the best payoff options are. You can see which repayment paths will lead to high interest payments and which ones will take the least amount of time to complete. It costs $3.99 to download, but it can save you from a lot of complicated time with the calculator. Once you find out which repayment method is ideal for you, all you have to do is follow it toward financial freedom.

If worse comes to worse, you don't lose much by giving it a try.
Debt Free – Pay Off Your Debt with Debt Snowball Method – This is a guide that shows how you can pay off your debts using the snowball method.
