I rarely review products but I've been using CheckBook Pro for two years and am still as happy with it as when I first started. The learning curve is not too difficult--when I suggested that things could be added to it, the support team got back to me immediately to tell me that many of the things that I wanted were already there--and then gave me instructions as to how to implement them. Things are not difficult with this program--and it's everything that I need!

Undoubtedly one of the most useful Apps around. Simple to set up and track your expenses. I use it daily and not sure what I would do without it. Think it deserves a 10!

I had used CBP for al long time. I waited and waited and waited for the iOS version which they said they were working on several times, but to no avail. I need the iOS version for when I’m traveling when I use my iPad and iPhone for expenses/deposits. Are they ever going to introduce an iOS version? If they do I’ll return to CBP.

I have been using Check Book Pro for more than 9 years as my only money-tracking program. It behaves so much more clearly and intuitively than anything else I've tried. It has never failed or acted ambiguously. At tax time every year, I thank my lucky stars I found this application and am not using any of the others I once had. I can get ASCII files into and out of the program's data base with zero effort. On the one or two occasions I have asked questions, their staff answered immediately, attentively, in fluent English. There aren't many good texts out there about the theory, practice and ethics of good user-interface design--the authors of this program ought to consider writing one, or perhaps they have.

I was using another check program. They decided to update it to 2018 version. I didn't want to update but I kept receiving ads prompting me to update. I looked for an alternative and came across CheckBook Pro. Boy howdy am I glad I did. It was the easiest install and use app I have ever come across. It really is intuitive. Even with an easy install there are always questions. The guys at Splash.com have the best after sales help of anyone I have ever run across. During the day I'd send a query. Within a few minutes the answer and solution to whatever came back. In addition to being an awesome product, the price for it is almost impossible to believe --- but it is real and well worth it. It is an absolute bargain. Really well worth it.

I am intimately acquainted with Checkbook Pro for as long as it has been out. I just finished writing Splasm with an exhaustive email where I recounted the problems and fixes that have made Checkbook Pro an inexpensive alternative to the likes of Banktivity 6 and Quicken 2017 for Mac! Splasm has always moved almost frustratingly slowly in implementing changes to the software even when users ranted that the company was doing just that on their forum. But Splasm is a conservative company and the long patient wait has allowed them to refine the app. There is no question that in its register searches and summary reports it is damned powerful! I have always called Checkbook Pro by my nickname for it ... The Toy Program. The reason is that the red and green font and the icons they provide are light-hearted and I think meant to be fun. Some think that the red and green produce an eye-sore, but in preferences you can change the colors. Isn't it an achievement though that an app that now sells for $19.95 can actually compete with the likes of Banktivity 6 and Quicken for Mac 2017? Of course it is much more limited in what it can do than Banktivity 6 or Quicken 2017! But Checkbook Pro kicks ass when it comes to working with the data from your bank accounts and credit cards!!! There is only one area where improvement of the app is sorely needed and I wrote Splasm about it and I pray they do something about it in the next Version 3.0 if I should live long enough to ever see it written... hee hee. And that is that when one prints out the register reports in hardcopy, they strike one as utilizing too small a font and the layout is not aesthetic. In short, register reports are powerful like the dickens but look like cash register receipts! The summaries are fantastic and improved so that one can print out, for instance, a category detail report on all line items grouped and subtotaled by category for the complete date range of all your accounts!!! The screen puts out a descent rendering of this summary but as yet, the hardcopy printout is crowded if only because they should be in landscape instead of portrait In order to gain the room to layout everything in a lovely fashion. Larger font capacity for printouts plus the ability to change format on the fly would be a nice thing to provide in the next Version 3. Otherwise, count your blessing on what you get for such an inexpensive price. Checkbook Pro is HOT!!! It is reliable, intuitive enough, never clunky and ever so clever!

I've used Checkbook on a daily basis since 2005 and cannot praise it enough. It's intuitive, very easy to use and has never let me down. If you want to keep track of all your bank and credit card accounts etc., look no further.

As usual, almost 40 days after the release, we AppleStore registered buyers are left waiting for the update to become available. I know it depends on the long procedures of AppleStore, but in my opinion the developer should wait and upload here when his software becomes available also on AppleStore. I am pretty annoyed

Yes, don't buy from the [Cr]app Store — I did long ago, before I knew better… I've just been locked out of this application, as OS X tells me "CheckBook Pro" is damaged and can't be opened…, and so are a load of other applications…

This is an excellent bit of software that I'm totally reliant upon — it works great (until I was locked out). Splasm Software are very responsive when I highlighted an issue…

I have to admit that I used to use MS Money on a PC, this was very good (especially for MS) but I much prefer "CheckBook Pro".

It can certainly balance credit card accounts and bank accounts, so I would assume that loan & and mortgage accounts can be balanced too, assuming they are supported.
