Excellent basic checkbook app This is a great app for basically managing your accounts, keeping a ledger, etc. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles but it does the basics very well. It backs up to Dropbox on schedule, never has made any errors, and makes it easy for me to track all my transactions. I do wish it didn't automatically log transfers between accounts as cleared, as I am often transferring between financial institutions and it takes a few days for them to clear. I also wish it was easier to reorder numerous accounts.
This app lacks a fluid feel. I prefer Checkbook(Digital Life Solutions) because the number of buttons I have to push using it "feel" to be about 30% less. Checkbook Pro(Molovi Software) does look very pleasing, but I value functionality over aesthetics. Molovi Software's more than 135 updates since January '13 have left me using another app last updated on 1/18/13. Also of note, Molovi Software most-always has to have the last word, which is non-normative behavior.
Liked enough to buy but have a couple problems Great, looks just like paper register but when I bought it, the transfer from the trial didn't keep colors of categories or all the categories I had set, had to redo them all. Also, not all of the register fits on the screen, its a hair too big so you can't see both the item number at the left and the dollar amount at right unless you move back and forth. Its only a little off so I don't know why the designer did that.
I purchased this app after only a couple days use. I really LOVE the idea of replacing my paper ledger. My only problem is that the back-up function (to Dropbox) doesn't work and I can't seem to get any response from Molovi. If this were fixed I'd gladly give it 5 stars! It's a very promising app!
Easy to use The User Interface is intuitive and consistent with most bank statements. I like holding my phone in Portrait orientation for entering data and in Landscape orientation for viewing/reconciling data. The app responds appropriately to orientation change. Negatives: I cannot get Recurring Items to work. I do not see a way to do automatic backups only when the data has changed. Desired enhancements: The app would be much more useful to me if it allowed synchronization across multiple devices, including PCs.
Good app for basic use Nice app but lacks a few things. The biggest would be transferring money from one account to another. You have to type it in twice. Haven't tried to reconcile yet, will update later. Also, include how many times the repeating transactions will occur. When holding down the transaction, I see edit delete or share. There's no transfer from or to. UPDATE: I added another star because you can transfer between accounts, thanks!
v1.0.167 - Add preferences to include/not include future transactions in overall and ledger balances.
