    Been using this app for years. Helps me keep my account balanced better than the banks website. I never overdraft on accident as long as I log all my purchases. Yesterday I purchased the full version, after using free one for years. It should be worth it.
  • Love this app!

    This app makes monthly bill paying so much easier! No need for a calculator as it does it all for you! I like that you can check off when things clear your bank account and that the number matches what’s in my bank account - if it doesn’t I know I need to research!

    I've been using this app for a long time. It is easy to use, has all the features I need, and I pay for sync, which works great. I've even asked support questions and got quick, helpful replies. Thanks!
  • So simple

    I love this app! I get paid once a month. At a glance, from the very beginning of the month, I can see EXACTLY what I have left in my account after bills for the month. So simple to use too. I recommend to all my friends. Especially my co workers who are paid once a month, like me.
  • It’s ok but does not sort by date puts everything ABC ORDER

  • Nickel and dime you to death!

    By Jwjones35
    Don’t waste money on this app, the developer obviously wants to empty your wallet one nickel at a time by charging a fee for every single function of this basic app individually. One price for no ads, additional pricing for exporting transactions, another fee to search your own data, etc...
  • Perfect App

    By Doximom4
    Exactly what I was looking for! Easy to use. Great for those who just don’t want that old paper check register any longer. You can keep it simple or add some features to fit your needs. Now, I can’t live without it!!!

    I was looking for an app to use instead of a written checkbook register and this is perfect. I probably won’t get the paid version, but this is exactly what I was looking for.
  • Great app and great support

    My husband and I have been using this app for a few years, we love the sync capabilities, ability to add multiple accounts and auto payments. There have been a few minor glitches but anytime I’ve had a question or issue and emailed support I get a reply within the stated 24-48 hours. He’s great to work with, explains things well and works quickly to resolve any issue. I have recommended this app to many and will continue to do so!
  • Basics are great!

    For simple tracking of debits and credits this is perfect. Exactly what I needed.

    Simple and easy to use. Upgrades can a bit pricey but they are handy. Only reason for not 5 stars is because the updates are thin and no iPhone X screen support. It just looks a little dated without the full screen. I would give 5 stars for this much needed update.
  • THE BEST OUT THERE

    By Clash3333333
    I've tried about 6 of these types of apps. This is the ONLY one that is a simple check register. This is exactly what I wanted, something to simply enter a transaction when I swipe my debit card. That’s it !!! I didn’t want to classify all my transactions. I didn’t want a long process. Just enter the amount. That’s it. This app does exactly that. I’d gladly pay for this simple app, but it’s free. If you’re looking for a simple check register , don’t waste your time with the rest. You found the best !!
  • Awesome app!

    I’ve had this app for a couple of years now and I use it to track loans I’ve given to people. So when they pay me back I track it on this app and it helps out so much!! It does the math for me which saves me time, honestly for my situation this app is perfect!

    One of the main reasons I bought this app and paid for ALL of the features was to be able to sync it with other family members. However, that feature is “coming soon”. What is the definition of SOON? It’s a good app, but somewhat useless if I can’t share the info with other account users.

    As an accountant, a basic T-account is all I need. Serves my purpose in computing end balances of accounts I have to monitor, like; cash/hand, cash/bank, IOUs, etc.

    By RevPastorRoger
    Get this app! This is an app I use every single day. I love it and it works very well. I manage three checkbooks. I am able to keep all of my checkbooks balanced at all times. It’s easy to use and intuitive. What I love is that I always know my available balance. 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.
  • Need to be able to sync

    By MadisonJourdan
    I really like the app, it’s clear and easy to use. But you can’t sync with other devices so if you have a shared account you can’t share the data in this app with the other person.
  • Just realized it does not add entries correctly

    Reviewing and balancing my accounts. I have a new savings account with only 7 transactions. App’s addition is off $1.50. I have a variance every month in my checking, but always thought is was my mistake of missing a transaction, but know think it was the app. Looking for a new app.
  • Free version one problem

    4
    By Bob from Durham NC
    I have been using the free version for five years. Very simple and easy to use. However, the apps bank balance and my bank statement balance come out slightly different and I have to enter a correction. I have gone through every transaction to see if I could find my error but I cannot find one.

    I love this app. I have used it for years. People have seen me using it (I put a debit in when I am making payment at the store etc) and have asked what it was and taken down the info to get it. I have went back later and they have thanked me for the info as they are now using it and love it! My suggestion for an improvement (and maybe it’s here and I’m missing it) is to have an automatic backup function. I also am wondering how I delete an account I closed?
  • 4.5 STARS

    By Bekwade5221
    Only app that I have ever found that is just the right amount of simple! Works like a basic check register to quickly enter all your debit card purchases so you do not over draw your account and at the same time you can enter all your reoccurring charges (even if the amount changes a little each month-put a rounded amount and adj when you know the exact amt). And balancing your statement couldn’t be easier. The only thing I could see some people might like is the ability to print a balanced statement report but I’m perfectly happy and have found nothing else out there that is this easy to use.
  • Very helpful

    I like this little app. It’s easy to use and has helped me keep my checking account perfectly balanced. I would often forget about what was going to be debited from my account, especially automatic payments. Now I enter them in the app ahead of time, so I’m not surprised by a forgotten auto pay.
  • PassLock

    By AprilEllis79
    In order to add a passlock for security, one has to PURCHASE the security feature. Really? This is how you attract more users??
  • DO NOT BUY!

    By Nikster5
    I’ve subscribed to this app to have all of the premium features. For the 3rd month in a row, there’s been some sort of “bug” that doesn’t accurately calculate the balance. So, most recently, my balance showed I had over $200 available to spend - which I did. I get a notice that there’s been a “bug” again and my balance is really -$140+!!! So, I check my bank account and, sure enough, I’m overdrawn. Not only the $140 but now $170 in fees in my bank!!

    I have had this app for a couple of years I believe. It is perfect for me. My expenses are texted to me by the bank and I account for them with the app each day. Easy to mange my check book, even after I changed phones I sent a “backup”, downloaded the app again and used the backup to reload. Didn’t miss a beat.

    I’ve been using for about 3 weeks, easy to use and meets my needs for replacement of hard copy check register. Don’t have to worry about making subtracting or addition errors. Thanks!
  • Would totally recommend

    By LDS and proud
    I have been using this app for several months and it had absolutely simplified how I manage my finances. I don't want to rely only on my banking app, because sometimes transactions haven't hit the account yet and then I overspend. This app has allowed me to quit tracking things by hand, and as a result saved me lots of time. Disclaimer- while I frequently back up my data, I have never had to restore it. I cannot speak to that feature of the app.
  • No sync

    1
    By Chesty Hell
    The #1 reason I chose this app to download was because it said it could sync with another user. Not the case. Instead, I’m on a list of sorts, to be notified when that feature becomes available. No idea what the status of the sync feature and annoyed that it advertised this feature then notified me only after the fact that sync is not available.
  • Still waiting...

    It’s been 2 years and still no support for the new screen sizes. Also I wish it would by default go into your account if you only have one. It’s very annoying.
  • Great!

    Great app. Does everything a checkbook register should and a bit more. Would be 5 stars with the addition of Touch ID.
  • Back Up Data did not included transaction names. Disappointed!

    By Pacific Watcher
    I am disabled and have sever arthritis in my hands. I have been using this app for several years and loved it. Hand writing a check book register is difficult. I paid for the upgraded bundle to get all the features. I faithfully back up my data for this app monthly to my e-mail. When I recently had to restore my data to the app from my recent back up data, the transaction names where missing. This means I have to retype each transaction name again, where in the past just entering the first letter of the transaction name “S” and “Safeway” would populate. When you have many different transaction names you have entered in the past, having the name populate is a handy feature. I tried to restore the data from an older back up and same result happened. I’m thankful the actual transaction data is there, but all the years of transaction names won’t populate anymore. I also tried the same back up on a different device resulting in the same outcome. I would have given it 5 stars if not for this issue. Hopefully support for this app can provide a fix solution. But by other reviews, it appears developer does not respond all the time. Thanks for listening.

    By barbarakitten
    I just switched from another online check register and, so far, I have no complaints. I haven’t figured out if I can access it from multiple sources (my iPhone accesses WiFi in places my iPad doesn’t ) but I have not had any problems yet.
  • Great App!

    By J~Rapha - Health Coach
    I’ve had the app for a few weeks and it’s so great that I no longer need a check register! I would like to see it with the “cents” added instead of having to round up or down. Other than that I love it!
  • Been using it for years

    I’ve been using this app for several years. Love it! Highly recommend it to anyone who wants a simple to use digital checkbook system to simply stay on top of your accounts.
  • Most Useful App I Have

    5
    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.
  • FINALLY

    By %%%%%%&&
    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

    2
    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

    5
    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.
