  • Free version one problem

    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

    By Selby63
    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??

    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!!
  • Update please!

    By tech@
    App is very good please update for iphone x! Full screen thank you!
  • Love it

    By Captain2x
    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.
  • simply tracking expenses

    By Widget-VT
    easy to learn thanks
  • Very easy!

    By 1234BigM
    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

    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...

    By DominickBattiato
    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!

    By Dr.Boggs
    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.

  • Easy

    By Meghex
    I like how easy it is to use this app. The free version is nice. I paid for all the features and it really makes it even better and easier to use.
  • Like this app so far

    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

    By Justin Y.
    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

    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.

    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

    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.
  • 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!
