    Paid or free?

    I bit the bullet and paid for a Sharesight subscription as the dividends were becoming a pain to track for tax etc. I'm very impressed with it. They have a mobile version I believe, but I haven't tried it, I just use the desktop version.

    Easy to use and spits out your tax reports for you.

    They're are supposedly adding crypto-currency support shortly too.

    I use the Commsec app - not sure if you have to be a registered user/trade with Commsec, but if you do it has the added benefit of tracking your current portfolio automatically.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I ended up using the Commsec app which seems to be pretty good.

    As @Propagate has mentioned, Sharesight is very good - I use both the desktop and mobile version for tracking my shares.

    CommSec is great for trading, whereas Sharesight does a great job of easily showing the value of your shares (eg. income for each share is broken into 2 values - the capital growth, and any dividends received), plus it allows you track things like how dividends are taken (direct payment vs reinvestment), and a tonne of other features (including easily generated tax reports for the accountant).

    Use comsec mobile apps and create a watch list

    Comsec has very comprehensive dividend tracking in their end of FY report
    they also detail all your trades for the year.

    you have to go to statement and download them, it breaks down all your dividend, what company paid when and how much, it also tallies up that number for you
    it is spot on and that number match with ATO system feed to the cent :)

    The only thing you need to track is your capital again/loss

    Comsec also has very comprehensive tax report and it auto-generate for you after the FY end and you can take 1 sheet summary to the accountant and done. and if you need further details it all available down to each transaction

    just keep track of your capital gain and loss is the only thing you need to do

    I agree with the above,Commsec is all one would need once you understand it's just a gigantic auction selling arena..
