Fast, efficient and, most importantly, extremely safe, Twyp is one of the most popular apps in Spain for moving money amongst friends and family. With an intuitive interface and no need for inserting the other person’s bank account number, it’s going to save you a lot of time the next time you need to send or receive cash – and if you believe that time is money, then you’ll come out with a profit no matter what the transaction is.


Filling a sign-up form with all your information is arguably the most annoying thing when using a new service, isn’t it? With Cashcloud, you can skip that step altogether, as it allows you to conveniently use your Facebook login. This service offers both freemium and premium accounts, with the former allowing you to load it with a maximum of 100€ a month. In addition to Spain, Cashcloud is also available in all other European Union countries.
