CheckBook

Version 2.7.7

Manage personal checking accounts.

CheckBook overview

With CheckBook, easily and simply manage your personal checking accounts.

A paper check register can't categorize your transactions or report cash flow over time, and it'll never balance itself. That's where we come in. Introducing CheckBook 2, the powerfully simple personal finance manager.

  • Precisely manage your finances:
    • Find transactions with simple searches or dozens of powerful criteria
    • Reconcile your accounts to the penny
    • Schedule transactions that repeat periodically, like monthly bills and paychecks
    • Track cash flow over time with customizable reports so you can see where your money came from and where it's going
  • Import from other personal finance apps or your bank:
    • Strong support for OFX, QFX, QIF, CSV, and Text
    • Import from Quicken Essentials for Mac or Quicken for Mac 2017
  • Share and sync your data:
    • Sync with other users on a local network
    • Sync with iCloud, when used on OS X Mountain Lion
  • And more:
    • Manage accounts in multiple currencies
    • Transfer funds between accounts without creating two transactions

What’s new in version 2.7.7

Updated on May 11 2022

New features:
  • To, From, and Description boxes can now ask if you want to update the case for a previously entered item as you’re typing. You’ll see the option when the menu of previously entered items is visible, but if you want to see it as you’re typing without the menu head to CheckBook > Preferences… > Entry and put a checkmark next to Ask To Update To/From & Description Items near the bottom of the window
  • Notes are now part of Text and CSV exports.
  • The Preferences… > Grid Color color panel will now show the Opacity slider so you can make grid lines in Entry lists disappear completely.
Fixed:
  • Zaps a bug in the Import Preview that would always select the first item in To, From, or Description autocomplete lists, forcing you to overtype. All better now.

I have been using CheckBook since 2010. In that time I've had to contact Splasm only about 3 times and on every occasion have received a personal, prompt and helpful reply that resolved the issue that I had. This product is very simple to use, and does everything that one would need for keeping an eye on home finances and investments. I really wouldn't use anything else.

I have been using CheckBook since 2011 and it has been flawless. It has never crashed, has a very affordable perpetual license, and you receive regular updates. It is very easy to use and manage and when I had an issue with upgrading my macOS, customer support was responsive immediately with spot-on assistance. I use it simply as a checkbook and the search engine for past transactions always finds what I am looking for. The only area that could use improvement are the reports (summary section). I don't use those often, but they are clumsy and disorganized. If that is important to you, I think there is a Pro version that I have never tried out.

Great! Easy to use. I have been using CheckBook since July 2019 when my old electronic check program was no longer going to be updated. It is just an electronic checkbook register that is accurate, simple to use and doesn't cost much. It is not a subscription and it is the BEST!!!!

I've been using Checkbook for about a month now. It works great! The transition from Quicken was seamless. I imported 20 years of data without a hitch. I went from PC to Mac. If you are thinking about making a switch, don't hesitate. You will be amazed and wonder why you didn't do it sooner. One of the best things is, you are not paying monthly and it is not on the cloud! Also, the customer service is top notch. The response has been the same day. Sometimes within minutes.

I've been using CheckBook for several years and have found it to be flexible, easy to use, and the customer support excellent. I've also tried to provide a review a few times, but the MacUpdate form is badly out of date and largely irrelevant. I don't need anything improved on this app, and that's all MacUpdate seems to want. So this "old fashioned comment" will do instead. If you want a straight-forward, easy to use app to keep track of your checking accounts, this is all you need. I use it for personal as well as several non-profits I manage funds for.

I tried posting a review but couldn't because there was nothing I could think of that needed to be improved. Unfortunately, that's not a valid choice with the review software and needs to be fixed. As far as Checkbook is concerned, I used Quicken for years and it was OK but became strange, unfriendly and clumsy with later updates. I looked for other software to keep track of my accounts and tried Checkbook. There was a short learning curve, which I really appreciated, and the features suit my needs perfectly. Checkbook doesn't do everything Quicken did but it does do everything I need it to do and it does it very well. I highly recommend Checkbook if you're looking for a good piece of software.

Excellent app. Does everything I need to do in terms of various accounts. The on thing that I would like to be able to do that it does not presently do: directly edit memorized "AutoCompletion Description Fields."

I've been using CheckBook since 2009 and it's always been reliable and resourceful. It's been an invaluable tool for budgeting expenses, and when looking to verify if an expense has been paid, or not. Also helpful for when doing our tax returns.

Solid, low-cost Quicken alternative. If, like most people, you are looking for an electronic check register, this simple program is all you need. Summary features for tax reporting purposes are rudimentary but meet my needs, at least. Stable and problem-free and I have used it for many years. Recommended.

I purchased Checkbook when I went Mac many years ago. It serves me well, although I don't use many of the features. Frankly, I'd be lost without it. I use 2 currencies accros several accounts and I hang on to accounts that have long since closed. Looking back in history can be useful at times, so I sometimes wish there was way to search across a selection of accounts at the same time. Otherwise, Checkbook is perfect for me.

Dottie I was in a terrible mess with finances not balancing. I cut the cord and said "I'm starting over" Checkbook took a little while to learn and get used to is new format. However email help was SO valuable. I am now up and running and balanced. Thanks for all the support.

I have been using CheckBook for a couple years. It has enough features that make this a good choice for me over Quicken. The input is simple. The search and sort features are intuitive. It does have one one small issue when inputing the "To/From", at times it does not find one of the previous inputs and I have to retype it. Odd that it does not happen all the time. Otherwise, it works all the time and I have no other issues using it. I recommend for anyone that needs a basic check book tool to help manage their finances.

CheckBook is much faster and easier than a paper check register. Reconciliation is faster and mistakes are easier to find. And it is searchable so you can look at the history of past payments. I left paper in 2002, went to Quicken for a while but left for lack of support. Then I found CheckBook and never looked back. Very highly recommended!

Performance has been trouble-free. Function is fast - perhaps because software is not overly large. Features are entirely satisfactory for me.

When/if I ever have a problem, the support team is as good as the product, which makes them great to work with when needed!Great Co, bunch of great software and great customer support is what all software vendors strive for, but few achieve. This group has done it!
