  • Most Useful App I Have

    By Jazzbud
    If I could give this app 10 stars I would. I’ve been using this for several years and it is by far the most useful app I have ever had. If you are at all interested in keeping track of your money you need to have this app, and it isn’t at all complicated. An added bonus is the user support, I did have an issue a couple of years ago, and the app developer was as helpful as he could be in helping me to resolve the issues.

    I have been using this register for almost a year. It is easy and accurate. The term K.I.S.S comes to mind. Keep it simple stupid. In an age where the complex is the norm, it’s nice to see something simple. Thank you.
  • Almost great

    By Holyhog
    For my purposes, it works fairly well. The app does seem to have a reoccurring glitch for me. 5 times in the past year, the calculations in the app have been wrong. Sometimes it is more, sometimes less than my bank shows. While it is somewhat concerning, it does cause me to go over my statements carefully.
  • App has issues

    By Mofuggah
    This app has issues that the developer gets emailed about and does nothing to fix them. The app will lose $10-$15 somewhere and you can’t find it. Your bank account will be correct but this app will not be and the developer will defend their app over a bank that is a federally regulated institution. Come on... On the bright side, this is one of the only check register apps that doesn’t have pop up ads. That is worth gold in my opinion. Would rate this app 0 stars if it had ads. But ultimately at the end of the day I’m trying to keep track of my finances and this app doesn’t do it.
  • Use it Religiously

    By Martadml
    It is so easy to use. I use it every single month to keep track of not only my checkbook, but also my cash flow, my food stamps and my general budget. The fact that you’re allowed to have multiple accounts open at the same time is wonderful. The only thing I don’t like is that I wish that they would have debits before credits listed on the same day. Because it looks like you have bounced checks or that your cash flows off. Get the in app purchases; they are worth it. I very, very, highly recommend this app.
  • Can’t Sync

    By Uncle Sloppy
    I need it to sync.
  • Good until it’s not

    By K2019KdC
    I used this app for a couple of years and felt it was helpful. Then, one day, suddenly, all my data for the past 2 years is gone and the recurring payments are wrong, like I went back in time. This after I paid for all upgrades. I will be going elsewhere to fill this need from now on.
  • Needs iPhone X Max support!!

    By Vmurp
    The app doesn’t fill the screen on iPhone Xs Max. It looks terrible. It has almost a full inch of blank space at top AND bottom.
  • Balance issues

    By Tusiems
    This app had me reconcilng my account 4 times. The balance has never been correct. I sent in a diagnostic and they say it’s correct. It is still off by almost 1000.00. I found one better that gives you an accurate balance.
  • Great App

    By Gcentanne
    Simple, easy to use. I don’t ever do reviews on apps, that’s how much I like this thing😂
  • Love It!!!!!!

    By Holyddogg7
    Just have free features and let me tell you been wonderful-easy to use and love the features great app 2👍🏼👍🏼
  • Great App!!

    By 61russell
    Most useful app I have on my phone. Has worked flawlessly since I have had it which is probably over 3 years now. Started with free version and went to purchased. Well worth it. Also just recently upgraded phone and transfer was extremely simple. Great App!
  • Sync option unavailable

    By Crystallynn828
    I need the sync option !!! Hurry up with the sync fix !!!
  • Great way to quickly keep track of your accounts

    By Reeldawg
    Definitely buy this app if your looking for a simple, quick and thorough way to know how much you have in your account(s). You will be able to enter a purchase before some store chip reader finalizes a transaction. Quick and easy. I have been using it for years. Buy the bundle. I wish I had. Far better value. One Gripe - A user brought up the hassle of making two entries when transferring from one account to another. It doesn’t take long but it’s a great suggestion. I hope the developer seriously considers this issue. Overall, not a huge deal.
  • A great tool

    By bowler13579
    Since we live paycheck to paycheck, I have always found it necessary to balance my checkbook to keep from overdrawing, etc. But as time goes by, I make mistakes I never dreamed of making:; many of which landed me in more trouble than if I hadn’t balanced it at all. This tool has helped so much,
  • Monthly payment

    By RJC68
    Do NOT alike a monthly service fee. Needs a one time fee and I’d buy it
  • Compliments to the developers.

    By wm&co
    Compliments to the developers. This is an easy to use checking app.
  • All I Needed

    By JK4550
    After 25 years of using Quicken I came to the conclusion that I didn’t need to track my spending anymore, but I did need to balance my accounts. This does the job.
  • Disappointed

    By Chris7689314
    Bought this app a couple years ago and paid for upgrades. At that time I could pay extra to sync it. That feature is no longer available. Now I’m stuck using my old iPad only to use this app.
  • Great

    By Genafish
    Simple and very helpful app.
  • Best check register ever!

    By Juanie66
    When exporting csv data, I would love the option to select it by month so I can balance my monthly checking account. Right now its inception to data. That is way too much information. For this I give it 4 stars.
  • feedback

    needs more 1) columns and 2) export options
  • Love this app except for one thing

    By koba 1953
    I really love this app I’m always balanced with out using a paper check registry however I would change one thing. I had to factory restore my iPhone and lost everything in it it would be nice if you could sign back in and everything be there.
  • Getting double charged for syncing feature

    By rgmobile1
    I’ve been using this app for about nine months. I’ve liked it that my wife and I can make our entries and sync between phones. That is until I started getting double-charged through iTunes. The developer responded to my communication about it, but it didn’t really change anything. Still getting charged double, so now I don’t use the app. Sad.
  • Review

    By Mister Mike S St
    Great app! Love it
  • Good checking app

    By icstars71
    So far, does everything I wanted.
  • Needs update

    By Scotchambe
    Since updating to to the latest iOS software reoccurring transactions do not automatically enter to the account.
  • Great app but can be me pricey

    By Ehall
    I have been using this app for years. It is a great overall app. I’ve done the in app purchases which are nice. But the biggest set back is the only way to sync between devices are to pay a $5 a month payment
  • Helps you keep track

    By Broohan
    Have had it for a while now. Highly recommend the app. Makes life so much easier when you can sync between three devices. I’m able to stay on track and stay current on my spending. Tech support is also great. You can tell the developer really cares and is proud of his creation. Very responsive and able to resolve issues right away. Get this app now.
  • Easy register!

    By smel3242
    I am from the generation of paper ledgers next to my paper checks and this app keeps me right where I want to be. There aren’t a lot of frills and you have to use another app if you want your money broken down into spending habits, but this is perfect for not overdrawing and keeping up with your money!
  • Taking away function

    By geminimind81
    I had to reload the software on my phone and when I loaded the app I couldn’t put my checking and savings account on unless I upgraded. Not cool developers. I wouldn’t have had a problem with the one account thing if that was what it was when I got it, but that is a jerk move developers.
  • Horrible app

    By Antttyyyy
    I’ve used this app for 3 years. I paid the $7.99 for all the features. The app got deleted from my phone by mistake and when I added it back everything is gone. It won’t let me sign in, says my account doesn’t exist. There is no customer service or help number to call. Just really disappointed. Will never ever use this app again.
  • TouchID

    By CPT Kendy
    Needs TouchID enabled. This has been an available feature with iOS for years but the app still doesn’t incorporate requiring PIN entry when switching back and forth between the app and others.
  • Simple and effective

    By PinkStrwBry
    I’ve been using this app for many years. I’ve never had an issue with it. It’s simple, and easy to use.
  • My Favorite App

    By RevPastorRoger
    This is an app I use every single day. I love it and it works very well. I am able to keep my checkbook balanced at all times. It’s easy to use and intuitive. I recommend paying for all of the in-app purchases. They are well worth it. I was so glad to see an update. Even though the app works perfectly, the developer has taken time to make it even better.
  • Old-fashioned Checkbook

    By J. Vowels
    This is a good, simple checkbook app. I tried a lot of different money management apps, and for all their bells and whistles, none could give me the flexibility and planning utility of a basic old-fashioned checkbook and bill plan ledger, and I was still overspending. This lets me put in all of my expenses for a paycheck and clear them as I go, so I can see my real available balance for extraneous spending; I’m managing my money soooooooo much better now that I use this.
  • Good App

    By Carlos 5737
    Good app to keep track of multiple accounts. Easy, simple, and gets the job done! So far my favorite balance app!
  • Can’t add or subtract

    By Josey86
    I’ve been using the app, happily, for years. In the last few months it has become useless. One month the app lost $15 nowhere. My bank account had it right. Adding the numbers in the app manually matched the account. I found the “recalculate balance” button, and it tells me the balance is correct. $15 still missing. I gave the numbers to my 2nd grade niece, whose calculations matched my account. The next month, 3 cents went missing. The next month, $12 went missing. Same process. Same result. This is a ledger app that can’t subtract. I’m looking for new apps now.
  • I like the app

    By Kacalhoun28
    I have been using this app for quite some time now & for the most part it works great. However, the calculations after awhile end up not correct. I compare my Balance with the bank & keep track of every little bit that comes in & out via both Balance check & my bank (I have had someone get a hold of my banking information before) so I am very diligent about it. However, the balance I have on Balance Check is higher than what I have in the bank & yes I went through every single transaction between the two & verified that I did not miss anything & all my transactions match with the bank transactions & yet my Balance Check is higher by at least $20 or more & no my bank’s calculations are not incorrect. I have also clicked on recalculate & it it just comes back that all calculations are correct.
  • Great App

    By to the C to the E
    Been using this app since ireconcile went belly up. Developer is very responsive and I can’t wait for the update in 2018!!!! Keep improving !!!
  • Great, easy app

    By nryther
    I’ve used this app for probably a year at least, and I love it. It’s easy to use, allows me to quickly log transactions, and saves my history (so I don’t have to type in the store name every single time). Unfortunately, with the last update, the picture on the icon disappeared, so now all it shows is a white box with a target on it, and the app name underneath. It’s annoying, but doesn’t effect the app at all.
  • Really good!

    By mizejen
    So far I like it. I like how I can mark off the transactions that have cleared my account, it does the math for me ( that part I really love). If easy to use and I don’t have to carry a check register with me to keep track of my spending.
  • Excellent Checkbook app for the most part.

    By Jupiter Ops
    Update: I've used this app for years, paid version but not the sync subscription version. The main complaint I have is when transferring money between accounts, it takes 2 separate entries. For example, if I transfer $25 from Checking to Savings, I first have to go to Checking and deduct $25. Then I have to go to Savings and add $25. This operation should be combined into one. I've contacted developer several times and was told it would happen at some point but I first brought it up years ago and still nothing. I'm dropping one star for that. I think it's still a great app and I continue to use it until I find something better. It would also be nice to sync from phone to iPad but not worth the current subscription price. Prior review: This is one of the best checkbook apps out there. Simple to use with multiple accounts and the developer always responds to feature requests. It's all I use.
  • Happy Jack6

    By Happy Jack6
    WILL NOT sync!
  • Nice app

    By Poonchy
    This app has the features I want in a checkbook balancing app. It’s simple and that’s just what I was looking for.
  • Overall it’s great!

    By Digital312
    Like the features and has mostly everything I need. PLEASE ADD IPHONE X SCREEN RESOLUTION SUPPORT
  • Potential!

    By Biddlejs
    I like this app it’s simple I don’t pay at all for it because I don’t really need any other features currently. However there is one thing I really wish that I could do is save the data from the app to my icould for when I upgrade my phone, cause idk maybe I’m missing something but how do I transfer that data over.
  • Having Lots of Issues Lately

    By epic fail 101
    I used to LOVE this app. It was the best one I’ve found. Lately though, more and more issues syncing with the info on my husband’s phone. More and more issues reaching the server. Just seems to have a lot of bugs lately? Hope it get fixed. I’ve been a long time fan, but have found myself looking for yet another checkbook app again. 😞
  • Enjoying

    By D18S
    I'm enjoying this app... easy to use, simplifies my life. Only issue is it's an al a carte app.
