CheckBook Pro has become a mainstay in managing our daily finances. We have used it for nearly 3 ½ years.

Reconciliation is easy and can be a major help. If you have several daily credit card transactions created by multiple people, you can balance as often as needed. In our case, daily reconciliation (balance to the online amount) has simplified our life and prevented fraud.

There have never been performance issues such as beach balling. The app was used on a Mid 2010, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB memory, Hard Disk MacBook Pro, that was upgraded this year to 8 GB memory and Solid State Disk. It has worked well from Snow Leopard to Mavericks (10.6.8 to 10.9.3).

Enhance your experience by using the help files and videos.

Remember to backup often. With Time Machine, there is no excuse to not backup! It is your responsibility.

If you have an issue, problem or complaint, contact support. You will be helped.

My support experience has been at the highest level in technical expertise, concern for the customer and response time!

I've been using CheckBook Pro for about eight years now and I have never regretted it. The developer was responsive when I had questions about an unsupported feature which is far more than I can say about most developers. 2.5.1 is a nice update and it's still UB (YAY!). I find it easy to use, though it can be a little daunting at first the learning curve isn't very steep. The only thing I might suggest is more graphing options but that's not a big deal for me.

Been using since 2003! Never a problem. Simple features of a checkbook register are just what I want. Provides me with an instant history.

Most frustrating application I ever tried to open. It opens with a msg saying it can't find the data file and gives me 2 choices. 1) Quit or 2) find the file manually. Well if it can't find the file how am I ever going to find it among the hundreds of thousands of files on my HD. Since this is the first time I’ve open Checkbook Pro I’d be very surprised it there is a file. One Star as worthless!

A good software. Takes some time to understand it in its many features - often confusely hidden —, but then it works very well. The manual could be much better, though. And it could be local and not only online, unbearably slow.

I jumped around to choose between CheckBook Pro and Numeric Notes for finance calculations. I ended up with both of them, and seems both apps more complementary than competing. I calculate all stuff in NN and if I want collect this information, I just put it into the CheckBook.

Thanks for advice, don't know about Numeric Notes app before.


I'd recommend Soulver over numeric notes. Might be more expensive, but much more powerful, just a suggestion.

I just had to add a comment:

I spent a few weeks in Scotland this summer and was happy to find that CBPro has the capability of translating exchange rates between currencies. This has been great in keeping my finances together. I've even got a separate petty cash account that keeps track of my British Pounds.

Still waiting for the iPad/iPhone version. Can't wait!

All together now: It's still the best. Better than all the rest...

Ever since I started using Checkbook Pro, balancing my account has never been so easy. I'm pretty computer savvy, but get very frustrated and extremely lazy when I'm forced to learn something complicated that shouldn't be. All I wanted was a simple, click-minimum program to keep a record of my account and not accidentally go overdrawn by a few bucks by a forgotten entry. Simple, easy, and to the point. I don't need graphs, formula's, or mind-boggling graphical representations of my spending at the coffee shop. Debt, Deposit, Balance. I've saved a ton of pesky bank charges by keeping my numbers straight. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 on Stability is because having all 5 stars looks unrealistic. My affection for CB-Pro is as deep as my love for MAC.
