Email me when discounted: 
Cha-Ching is a fun and easy to use money manager, done Mac OS X style. A tag based database lets you organize and search for your incoming and outgoing transactions your way. With Cha-Ching, you can also organize pending transactions, so you can keep track of the the cash you owe the electric company as well as the cash others might owe you and with iCal integration, you'll never forget a payment. Cha-Ching also offers fun little doodads you may have not expected-you can keep a photo inventory of your purchased items for insurance and tax purposes, or just for fun. There is also iSight integration to take pictures of your goods for more...

Another interesting application where development have ceased with no word from the developer on future plans yet the application is still available for sale?!

Proceed with caution!

Agreed, we wait and wait for 2.0 and then it's sits in beta for months with no updates from the dev. I too would be VERY weary. Excellent point mate... I had given up on this app a long time ago. Cha-ching has promise... but just that - promise.

Midnight Apps (creators of Cha-Ching) was bought by Intuit and has been discontinued.

After the ugrade to b107, Cha-Ching crashed upon restart and all data from the last three months are now gone. Don't rely on CC. Manage any critical data with it at your own risk.

This is not the first time that something like this happens. Things never seem to go forward smoothly with this developer. 18 months later we're still waiting for a stable and trusty version. And the developer simply vanished from this earth, there's no update on their forums in the last 3 months. Hello?!? Can we talk about incompetence here?

I just have to say, this is the ONLY Mac app that I really regret sinking my time and money into. I went through so much frustration with this thing that I ended up switching to a web app for managing my money.

Wow. It looks like they actually remembered that they have a Mac OS X version of ChaChing. How considerate of them.

This will definitely qualify for the app slowest development pace.... they failed to deliver their promises every single time...

Worst Mac App ever. Tied with Disco (the burning program). Both apps were hyped like crazy pre-release, but once the programs actually were available, they simply did not deliver on the promises they made. Lots of Flash (GUI), but does nothing but Crash.

I want a refund! Click the smiley if you think the Developers should refund every person who was mislead into buying this unstable, buggy piece of garbage.

What's truly upsetting about it is that there was almost no accountability on the part of Midnight Apps for the delays. Just, "oh, we didn't expect things would take so long; sorry!" - the fact that their betas had expiration dates made things even worse.

And then they decided to put time, energy and resources into an iPhone port of Cha-Ching. That's nothing less than a slap in the face to all of their customers on the Mac.

Truly, I've seldom seen such irresponsibility on the part of a developer towards their product and their customers. I think they'd do everyone a service if they just discontinued Cha-Ching on the Mac, directed all of their customers to iBank, and focused on their iPhone app, since that's all they seem to care about.

I totally agree, Rampancy.

I understand when a dev loses interest on a project or determines that it isn't shaping up as planned, but that's no excuse to string your paying customers along and to continue taking people's money. In such cases, the dev should call it a day and a make a graceful exit ... or risk the wrath of angry users bad-mouthing future projects.

I agree with last 3 posts.

Cha-Ching looks great but is unusable. I purchased this software when it first was released with the hope the developers would make Cha-Ching into the next Quicken but that has yet to happen. Development has been super slow and I don't even bother trying the beta's anymore because the previous beta's have been so disappointing. IMO, These guys should give up and move on to a new project.

I have been using iBank 3 since Jan 2008 and it serves me well with my multiple accounts and portfolio's.
