Checkbook Genius 3 App



Manage any account with a balance – checking, savings, debit cards, gift cards, even credit cards – and avoid costly bounced check fees or low balance surprises! Balance your checkbook with Checkbook Genius! And now, do it with a splash of color with the new customizable color background!

Recompiled and adjusted for Android Lollipop (Version 5.0), Checkbook Genius has been around since 2009 and has helped thousands of users avoid overdraft fees not just by flagging accounts that are negative, but when they’re getting low. Low balances – you pick what’s “low” – are flagged in yellow, while zero or negative balances are flagged in red. And you can see all your accounts in one handy place!

An easy-to-use interface makes it a snap to enter checks (with automatic check numbering), withdrawals, deposits, and more. If you pay bills online, there’s even a place for you to type in confirmation or reference numbers!

Handle transactions you create on a monthly basis in one of two simple ways. Presets let you specify a payee and an amount, and you can edit a preset any time if changes are needed. Or create recurring transactions – you schedule for transactions to be automatically posted to the accounts of your choice, and when the post date arrives (or if it has passed), you simply approve each transaction to have it written to the account and your balance adjusted. No surprises!

Reconciliation is also easy – Checkbook Genius can bring up a single screen where you can see a total of all your uncleared transactions. Then you tap another button to automatically create an adjusting entry in your checking account. If you need to clear a bunch of transactions as a batch, that’s easy, too – you can mark every transaction in your account with one action, or specify a cutoff date.

Checkbook Genius also has a handy backup center, making it easy for you to migrate your Checkbook Genius data from one Android device to another.

Here’s a list of some of the features in Checkbook Genius 3 for Android:

(NEW!) PAYEE SEARCH. Find all transactions matching a particular payee.

CHANGEABLE LOW BALANCE INDICATOR. You can determine what is “low”. If your account’s balance drops below the figure you set, the account display appears in yellow.

PASSWORD PROTECTION. Don’t feel like pattern-locking your Android phone? Create your own custom password or passcode.
