Manage personal checking accounts.

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
  • 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 CheckBook

Version 2.6.8:
Fixes:

I wanted to move all my applications from the PC to the Mac. For personal finance, I have used Quicken for years although I stuck at Quicken 2000 as it did all I needed. After searching reviews I narrowed the choice down to three products. Checkbook looked the simplest and was least expensive; on that basis I decided to try it first. I actually bought the Pro version as it was still less expensive than the competition. My only concerns were that it might mess up imports from Quicken and be a bit light-weight. As it turned out I was wrong on both points. The QIF file import worked near perfectly even sorting out the UK date format correctly. Only the "Type" of payment failed to come over although cheque numbers did. Even with several years of transactions, I was able to manually populate this field using the selection, sorting, and multiple record update features of Checkbook Pro. The interface is brilliantly straightforward, the help has always pointed me in the right direction and I find it much quicker to use than Quicken. The only shortcoming is on the reporting side if you need that. It does summaries but is not as comprehensive as much more expensive rivals. I'm not worried as what I want and maybe this will come with updates. Don't pay anymore for personal finance software buy this and give the developer a boost by getting the Pro version.

Been using this 2009 and cannot do without it. Simple and easy to use. Fabulous support. Good community support as well. Not so many bells and whistles to detract from the basic job of helping with personal finances!

Disaster, since a couple of upgrades. No way to open files, it stalls there forever and I have to Force Quit. I must launch the application and then open the files from inside it. Very bad. Sorry but I must say so

When I downloaded and launched the MacDesktop-created installer for this app., it also downloaded and installed a second app called MacBooster . There was an initial promo window for this app., giving the options Skip and Accept -- I didn't realize the full implications of these options. Then MacBooster automatically launched, without my permission, and planted its own files in my Mac, again without asking my permission. I have the distinct feeling I have been victimized . In the future, when I open a MacUpdate page I'll follow the Developer link and download the software from that source, but I will never ever download anything from a MacUpdate link. Since they've started supplying their own doctored installers in place of the ones distributed by developers themselves, they've ruined my trust in this site and the folks currently managing it.

Been using the Checkbook for years, it is terrific. Called for support once when my system crashed and the support was great. Sent an email to support today asking if the software was compatible with El Capitain OS and had the answer promptly.

OK.. Maverick on my mac caused a few problems.. but the customer support from Splasm ( Allan Woodall was THE guy ) was truly the best I've ever had and as a mac novice he guided me through the issue with fast and efficient fabulous service.. I can't praise him enough.. Buy this software.. It's superbly simple to use.. and I now know.. comes with amazing support !!!

I accidentally deleted all of my checkbook pro files. Time machine wasn't working properly and the online advice didn't work in my case. I contacted the help center. They emailed be back almost immediately, and within an hour had all of my files back up and running. I was really pleasantly surprised by the service.

Besides the fact that I love this program and it works very well, the first time I ever had a problem, which was totally my fault, I emailed the developer and got an immediate response. But then, version 2.5.1 came out and the program kept crashing and I was worried that all my work was gone and I wouldn't be able to use this program again. A quick email was sent again and they fixed the crashing problem. Great program and greater developer support. You can't go wrong.

I've been using this application now for three and a half years, and have many thousands of entries in it. I came to it the hard way, after using Quicken since 1993 (in Windows) and finding that since the Y2K change to Quicken that it began to forget an occasional previously reconciled transaction every now and then, which made it impossible to balance my checkbook. This happened in both Windows and Macintosh versions. I've also tried most of the other Macintosh financial software over the last six years as well. Some like iBank had a very rough transition to Universal, and others either didn't have what it took over time or lacked the right mix of features to be able to quickly and easily track my finances in ten different accounts including investments, with transfers between them. Checkbook has never faltered anywhere! It has consistently produced accurate, very easy to use and track results, is very easy to set up, and does exactly what it says it will, inexpensively and effectively. It doesn't have all the reporting features of Quicken or neat pie charts like some, but the charts it does produce are clear and easy to read...and do cover all categories of info. This is an outstanding application that combines both ease of use with utter reliability and accuracy. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
