    I really enjoyed this app. It helped me keep track of all my spending and organized it nicely so I can see where I'm spending too much etc. But beware that if you ever switch devices like I just did, they don't support transferring the data. I exported all my information via email but am not able to find out how to import it onto my new device. I decided to pay for the upgrade to see if that would help and I can't find anything that makes it worth the money. There doesn't seem to be any additional features aside from the fact you don't have to see ads when you open the app. I have also tried to contact the company for assistance in case I'm missing something but I cannot get a reply. Needless to say I'm trying to choose a different checkbook app that allows me to import all my data since I don't want to have to renter data for the last year of use!

    I had a bad experience. I used the free app for YEARS, then one day, all of my data was gone. The customer service team corresponded with me for a while gathering information to try and recreate the problem, but they could not. I don't know if it was some weird glitch or what. But honestly, it's the best checkbook ledger I have found.
  • Love the app, but... Feb 11, 2016

    By Daniyielle
    I love this app. It does everything it needs to do. It allows you to input deposits and withdrawals. It reconciles the balance in your account. It keeps places you've been and auto categorizes them when you select them from the list. It gives you a summary report. It does a lot of things others apps don't do. The only thing missing is a more personalized option. When I go out of the app and go back in, I want it to remember my settings. If I don't want to view all of my transactions and just view outstanding, I want it to remember I set it that way. Also, maybe a little different color options. Some people may not mind, but I like a little variety from time to time. Especially if you have multiple accounts. I manage a savings and checking account. In addition, I also manage my father in laws two checking accounts. Instead of having to recognize them by name (they all are for the same bank) I would like to recognize them by color. I would also like to see a search option. Say for instance I went somewhere at some point, but am not sure where or how many times. It would be nice to be able to search or filter by that place and see how many times I've been there and how much I've paid. I haven't ever seen an update on this app, so I am reducing the number of stars as it doesn't seem to show any further support.

    This review will be modified up to 5-stars or down to 1-star depending on the developer's response to this request for 2 seemingly minor changes to the app. The 1st is to offer a warning prior to deleting an entry. I often use the Dupicate feature and occasionally hit the Delete button by accident. Unfortunately, once you hit the Delete button the entry is immediately deleted and there is no easy way to undo that action. The 2nd request is to allow users to change the font size WITHIN the app.

    I’ve only been using this for two weeks but so far I’m very happy with it. I had been using Accounts 2 for over 5 years and paid for the app but had to find something better. The developers of Accounts 2 have not released an update in over a year...unacceptable for a paid app! Checkbook offers all of the same features in a format that I feel is more intuitive. I like how the scheduled payments are visible ahead of time-this actually helps me budget better as I base my spending on the unreconciled balance. Even though the future deductions have not cleared I budget as if they have been. I have not had an issues with balancing my checkbook since I started using this app. As soon as I downloaded the app I entered in all of the stores and utilities I use which makes entering a transaction simple and quick. I decided to pay on a monthly basis but I may go ahead and make the yearly purchase if the app continues to exceed my expectations. Thank you for bringing regular updates to your customers. If you’re looking for a checkbook register that is easy to use I highly recommend it.

    It took me a while to figure out how to work this app. However, once I got it, it was so simple. It is exactly what I've been searching for a long time. I'm one of this people that still keep a register, only now, it's digital 😁. I also like how it has different categories exactly how I have my register. I wished I'd found this app years ago; it would have made life so much easier. I like knowing how much I have in the bank down to the last minute and this app does exactly that! 👍👍👍👍👍

  • Used to be great Aug 13, 2018

    By Guitaristxboxer
    I used to love this app but recently with all the new updates it has become laggy and confusing. The transaction colors used to indicate cleared or uncleared purchases and payments and now they differentiate the days the purchases were made which is pointless. Please go back to the original look and feel or make an option in the settings to be able to toggle these features. Functionality is all I care about and right now this is not what this app is providing me. I will give this a week before I consider changing to a different app. *UPDATE* The transaction colors again indicate cleared and uncleared transactions which is much better and the reconcile function is very handy now that I understand it. I still use this app more than any other I have on my phone but the lag issue is still prevalent. I needed to scroll back a couple months and it took me a couple minutes to do so. It is just very choppy and slow on my 5C. Once this is corrected I will give this app 5 stars.
  • Ignore Searches Claiming Top 5 checkbook apps Apr 23, 2019

    By NicknameNickname1
    I’m a professional in my mid 30’s. I wanted a convenient, portable and seamless solution to a paper checkbook. This did the job at first. I was using the free version and had 4 accounts - biz chkng, biz savings, personal chkng and personal savings. Then I got a new phone. Downloaded the app, signed in, and went to “sync.” Didn’t work. Deleted the app. Reinstalled. Signed in. Removed accounts (because they wouldn’t sync) then went to add the account and start over. Nope. NOTIFICATION: You must be a pro user to have more than one account. CONTACTED CUSTOMER SERVICE. Dodged my question and simply said I have to pay to enter my accounts again. 1) plenty of free checkbook apps out there. It’s not good enough to pay. 2) I’m tired of companies having people sign up for subscriptions which was a trend that started after 2008 financial crisis so that companies could have predictable, continuous sources of revenue despite slowing “sales”. It’s lazy and arrogant. Keep working to earn my business and hard earned money by offering new features. Now I have no records of all my financial transactions. I got a one sentence response from customer service telling me I can only add one account. To me, effectively, they lied about telling me I’d have access to my financial checkbook. When it comes to money, this is not a matter that you f*i*c*k with.

  • Synchronization is still an issue Jul 24, 2021

    By JLBP67
    So we started out in the beginning as only my husband had the app on his phone, then after a considerable amount of time of at least six months to one year I decided that I would also use this app. Now we do pay for the subscription so that it will sync across both of our devices for obvious reasons. On a regular basis and I would say regular to me is if this happens more than once every three months then this is a problem especially if this is used to track my cash in multiple accounts on a daily basis. So yes there continues to be the issue where my checkbooks are not updated even if I refresh multiple times, turn off my device, and in the end I have to delete the app and reinstall. Unfortunately I guess you could say we don’t really have a choice to switch to another app because we’ve use this now for years so doing so would actually cause us to lose The extensive data that we have spent years entering into this app. Other than that it’s great but I would like the synchronization issue to be fixed. And yes we do use the export data option to transfer all of that information so we have that as a back up as well but again the syncing is an issue if it’s not working!
  • Few things that seem obvious Nov 26, 2019

    By CeKinakaPickUp
    I came to this app because MyCheck Register stopped updating. This apps’ recurring transfer is not as intuitive. With my other app I was able to program transactions to come out every Thursday for instance. This app only gives you a starting date and the “every week” option-which doesn’t populate on the same day of the week every week. This apps recurring transfer is also very buggy in general. I’ve had to cross compare the app to my bank statement almost weekly (which is exactly the sort of thing this app is supposed to prevent) because the app seems to add duplicates of recurring transactions. I also noticed that editing the recurring transfer in the recurring transactions menu does not update the future transactions. I have to go back and update it manually. This goes for amount and account updates. Lastly, if I’m exporting my transactions, I feel I should have the option to export individual accounts. I give it this amount of stars because of the GUI/ease of use and the cloud sync. A lot of register apps don’t seem to have sync options that provide instant updates for spouses. That’s mostly what my wife and I were looking for.

    I have been using this for a while now probably a couple of years. Just got a new phone and backed up the data from the app to both Dropbox and Google drive and when I installed the app on the new phone and restored the data from either cloud, it says no file found. I went directly to Dropbox and Google drive and the files are there, so I don't know why the app doesn't see it. I lost all my data and now I have to enter it all again manually. So now I am looking for a different solution.

    I am changing this to one star. I transfered devices. To download my data the app said I had to subscribe. I subscribed on my old phone and did the backup. I went to upload to the new device and it said I needed to subscribe again. So I literally have the developer$20 for 2 minutes of use on the old phone then can't upload unless I give them another$20 . I emailed the vendor and got a non relevant response. Use caution.
  • Started out great ….then it went off the rails May 1, 2021

    By Kathdd64
    I got this app about four months ago. It started out great. It did everything you said it would. Then in March it started going crazy. First everytime I switched an entry to cleared it would duplicate the entry instead of clear it. Then it started to duplicate my monthly recurring charges. Then it deleted some deposits and doubled others. Then when my balance was way off and I went back to look at previous months I saw that the app has quadrupled or more all of my recurring charges-FROM THE PAST- i know it just happened as I balance my account weekly and it always balances before this. I stopped using it but left it active to see what would happen. It’s been four days. Day two the app duplicated my deposits from the first of May. Day four it duplicated them yet again. Your app. Currently shows my account having $11,000 more dollars than it does. Needless to say I am deleting its immediately ans have already cancelled my subscription. If you are Looking for a checkbook app do yourself a favor and find a better one than this piece of crap.

    Had the app on my old phone, which was great! Even with the annoying apps. Had all my accounts and credit card accounts. Got a new phone and downloaded it. Then saw I needed to pay to have more than 1 account... I need to pay to have more than one account? Yea know. Just gonna find a free one to download where I can have multiple accounts.

  • LoveLoveLove This App! Oct 31, 2016

    By HaileyNJay
    As a young couple expecting our first baby, this app is everything we were looking for -- and more! I've read a few poor reviews and I contradict every one of them. The application does not lagg; it runs as fast as your internet/phone service allows. Perhaps it's because our monetary situation isn't very complex, but this app works like a dream. We're able to keep different accounts (I.e., Baby, Groceries, November's Check) and see exactly where the money is going and coming from. If my father-in-law lends or borrows money, it helps us keep track of it. If we receive extra cash as a gift or one of us picked up an odd side job, we can keep track of it. We know when we're spending money on gas, what we're buying on our food credit card, when we're over-doing it on the itty bitty baby things, or lending out too much that we don't have. This application is simple, runs smoothly, and is a life saver for us.
  • Best checkbook app May 21, 2021

    By AvenStar102
    I rate this app five out of five stars because it’s easy to use and confident that you can do all you checkbook stuff and look at your money in the app I that you create a account on their and all of your payments that you put into the app automatically transfer it from one device to the next I resent leaven switch from my Samsung galaxy j7 star phone to my phone Xr and it was so easy I didn’t even had to think about it is a nice and easy way to track your money and I also like that it doesn’t ask for your bank being someone who doesn’t want their bank account out there online for people to hack into I really like that you can use this app 100% without using your bank and it is a quick and easy way to look and keep track of your money without having to worry about hackers and having your bank account safe. Would total remain you to use this app

  • Best Checkbook App EVER! Sep 26, 2019

    By soodabobble
    I have used several different checkbook apps over the years, Quicken, and kept a checkbook in a regular spiral notebook. This is by far the easiest to use. I love that I can set up multiple accounts super easily. We follow the Dave Ramsey cash envelope system, which works great with cash and when you’re buying something in a brick and mortar store. But it has its drawbacks when you’re buying things online. This app is my solution to that problem! I have set up an “account” for each of my envelopes (my clothing, kids’ clothing, cosmetics, gas (because I’m not about to take 2 young kids inside a “convenience” store to pay cash for gas!) and groceries (thank you Instacart!). I love that I can quickly and easily see my balance for each account. My only suggestion would be more background colors for accounts and more icons for type of account. But overall, I LOVE this app!!
  • NEEDS ICLOUD BACKUP Oct 17, 2020

    By Roadking555
    I want to modify my original review. I grossly overlooked one of the best benefits I have found is the immediately sync of the account information and transactions when either using my iPad or my iPhone. I still would still like to see the ability to back up to iCloud, but I will now give it a 5 star rating after realizing the added benefit and will gladly wait for a possible future update to include iCloud backup. I would give this a better rating if it had the ability to back up to and restore icloud. I feel my data would be more secure if an upset occurred with my phone. Since we pay to use this app I am more critical of it. That being said, it has great potential to be very useful. It is very easy to use and it is one of the best I have found so far that does not require you to link your credit cards accounts.

    I really enjoyed this app. It helped me keep track of all my spending and organized it nicely so I can see where I'm spending too much etc. But beware that if you ever switch devices like I just did, they don't support transferring the data. I exported all my information via email but am not able to find out how to import it onto my new device. I decided to pay for the upgrade to see if that would help and I can't find anything that makes it worth the money. There doesn't seem to be any additional features aside from the fact you don't have to see ads when you open the app. I have also tried to contact the company for assistance in case I'm missing something but I cannot get a reply. Needless to say I'm trying to choose a different checkbook app that allows me to import all my data since I don't want to have to renter data for the last year of use!

  • Still miss MS Money Mar 24, 2016

    By Mama cat lady
    I was a huge fan of MS Money and hung on to the bitter end, until my old computer crashed and I could no longer run the old Money program. So I tried this app as a replacement and it really is lacking in a few features. I can't stand how the cleared transactions won't disappear (unless I'm missing a setting but settings are very limited). There's no sorting in alpha or numerical order when searching, you have to scroll. You can't enter a beginning balance to try to balance back to. I also had the same experience where I purchase the upgrade but there was no difference in features, just no more ads. It's really great for keeping a running total of your money and having it with you when shopping and it is very easy to enter transactions. Don't purchase it for a robust checkbook system but definitely better than none at all.
  • Love the app, could use a few tweaks May 25, 2017

    By Kteis23
    I've been using checkbook for nearly 3 years and love it. However, there are a few improvements it could use. First, I'd like the ability to import data into the app. I recently changed phones (after losing my phone) & had forgotten to back up my app beforehand. I had recently exported a CSV file with all my transaction info but there's no way to get it back into the app, so I had to start over from scratch & lost all my history. Second, I think the search button should be on the same screen as the account info, I.e. the page where you view the deposits and withdrawals. With the current setup I have to navigate back to the calendar screen before I can get to the search button. I would also like to see an expanded list of category icons, for things like software and postage.

    I just got my first iPhone and the one app I used heavily on my Galaxy is not available in the App Store. I was DEVASTATED. I downloaded probably about 20 or 30 budgeting apps trying to find one that was similar but all I kept finding was disappointment. Finallyyy, I found this one and I can do the exact same thing as I did with the other, but the one big difference is that it doesn’t automatically calculate my remaining balance into the days following where a bill or expense comes out, which is the only reason I took a star away. That’s what I loved so much about the other app, but I can get around it with this one by manually putting in my balance as an “income” wherever I need to do so. More time consuming but it’s not so bothersome since it actually does what I need overall!
  • Almost perfect Sep 2, 2019

    By Subjonas
    I’ve been using the free version for years and it has been very useful. It does almost everything I want it to, except the biggest thing is I’d love for it to autofill Apple Pay transactions, but that’s something Apple would have to allow. And a few more minor things. For example, when I split categories for a transaction, I often put in the total amount first, then go in and assign some of amount toward one category. I wish it would automatically assign the remainder to the next category I select instead of me having to manually calculate it. I’d also like local WiFi syncing between devices if that’s possible, not online. I opted not to sign up for an account for online device syncing. I prefer to keep my financial data local and off third party servers.
  • Good for the very basics Aug 11, 2018

    By Whosnameisnttaken
    This is a good app for very basic balancing. I honestly haven’t tried others to compare. I was disappointed that the only difference between the free vs paid is no ads. Kind of pricey to remove adds for $2.99. I expected more. However, it does the basics keeping my accounts balanced. When I printed some information it prints everything within my date range. I wish I could specify exactly what I want to print (for example only the charges I had under travel for a specific account) so I could get a quick total printed. Not printed, there is a pie chart and a break down that I can view for specific categories, but it’s for all accounts, not each individual one. Anyways, ads aren’t that bad so don’t waste your money upgrading because there’s nothing more.
  • Pretty good app to keep track of accounts Apr 1, 2020

    By Polcat1979
    Pretty good app to keep track of accounts. Not too complicated. I have noticed the balances on the main page won’t update some times when you enter a debit or credit. But I will just open the account back up then close it again and it’s updated. Definitely like all the options when entering a debit or credit. But also that all those options don’t have to be selected. Just and FYI if you transfer funds from one account to another on this app. Then at some point delete one of the accounts, it will delete all the transactions from the other account. You will just have to adjust the balance on the other account. All in all I really like this app and how they keep it simple!!
  • Great app! Sep 24, 2020

    By Bethanyb56
    Switched to this app after realizing that I was not good about updating my paper ledger. Very easy to input transactions and categorize, saves me an extra step and I no longer use Mint to keep tabs on my spending chart. I wish the search function were a little easier (have to go to the calendar to search), and it’d be nice if you could narrow searches by a date range, but overall the interface is simple and intuitive. The percentages by each category in the time calendar are nice too, but it’d be great if I could have a view for other percentage options instead of just spending/income (i.e. you spent x% of your income on this category). Highly recommend, affordable price and works on multiple devices!
  • Love the app, but... Feb 11, 2016

    By Daniyielle
    I love this app. It does everything it needs to do. It allows you to input deposits and withdrawals. It reconciles the balance in your account. It keeps places you've been and auto categorizes them when you select them from the list. It gives you a summary report. It does a lot of things others apps don't do. The only thing missing is a more personalized option. When I go out of the app and go back in, I want it to remember my settings. If I don't want to view all of my transactions and just view outstanding, I want it to remember I set it that way. Also, maybe a little different color options. Some people may not mind, but I like a little variety from time to time. Especially if you have multiple accounts. I manage a savings and checking account. In addition, I also manage my father in laws two checking accounts. Instead of having to recognize them by name (they all are for the same bank) I would like to recognize them by color. I would also like to see a search option. Say for instance I went somewhere at some point, but am not sure where or how many times. It would be nice to be able to search or filter by that place and see how many times I've been there and how much I've paid. I haven't ever seen an update on this app, so I am reducing the number of stars as it doesn't seem to show any further support.

    By Dr. Lyle Becourtney
    This review will be modified up to 5-stars or down to 1-star depending on the developer's response to this request for 2 seemingly minor changes to the app. The 1st is to offer a warning prior to deleting an entry. I often use the Dupicate feature and occasionally hit the Delete button by accident. Unfortunately, once you hit the Delete button the entry is immediately deleted and there is no easy way to undo that action. The 2nd request is to allow users to change the font size WITHIN the app.

    By Jim Bush
    Have used this app for years, and until recently would have given it a 5 star rating, but recently the app started opening automatically in landscape mode with the accounts page and ledger side by side. I can't figure out how to reset it to the way it was, and it won't even let me enter transactions in the ledger. Very frustrating!
  • Recurring feature needs work Dec 30, 2020

    By Garbie87
    I’ve been using this for a long time just to maintain my checking account balance. I basically live paycheck to paycheck, so I need accurate records of my bills so I know for sure how much money I have each week. I just recently tried utilizing the recurring transactions feature and was highly disappointed. When I added a bill, the charge reflected in the register right away, even though it’s a month or more away. I have some annual bills that I’d like to enter now but can’t because they show up right away and deduct from my balance. There also isn’t a way to end a recurring transaction, and if you delete it from the recurring transactions list, it apparently deletes all previous records of it. This alone makes the recurring transaction function basically pointless. I have a bill that I’m only paying for the next 12 weeks, but if I enter it as recurring, then 12 weeks from now there’s no way to end it other than delete all records of it. So then I will basically have to clear out my balance and start over. Not the most convenient.
  • Slowly declining Oct 11, 2021

    By jabdbekrnf
    I’ve been using this app for a few years now. Loved how easy it was. However, the last 6 months or so, the app has been declining. My reoccurring transactions duplicate themselves to show up 20 times in a row, on the same day! It typically saves vendors once you enter them once, and now it duplicates those as well. So if I visit Irving’s gas station weekly for a month, it’s now in there 4 different times as a vendor, instead of once that I can select each time. When you enter an amount and make a mistake and go to delete one number, it then rounds the whole thing up and you have to delete it and start over. It also isn’t adding properly. Just today my balance was $500. I added a $50 transaction and now all of a sudden it shows I have 7.50 left. I use this as my “source of truth” as I have pending checks and such, but I just cannot rely on it anymore. I have years of data on here and it’s sad that I’ll have to find a new app due to the LARGE number of bugs. It’s such a simple app, so I’m not sure why it’s so difficult to maintain. :(

  • Jul 1, 2021

    By Angel Collins
    Update- Changing from 5 to 3 stars. One thing I liked was it would keep things in the order that I put them. For some reason now it's putting thing in an order it feels like instead of in the order that I out them. Other than that unnecessary annoyance it's very simple to use.
  • App is ok Jun 8, 2021

    By Panda-Cat
    When I first started using this app a few months ago, it worked well. I liked how easy it was to input transactions, and I really liked the fact that a decimal is not needed to enter the amount. A couple of months ago I started noticing the balance was quite a bit off when I was reconciling with the bank statement. I discovered that the recurring transactions had a bit of a glitch. It would repeat one recurring transaction several times on the same day. It happened with more than one recurring transaction. No matter how many times I deleted those extra postings, after I exit the app and go back in, they reappeared. Sometimes not immediately, sometimes it would reappear a few days later. It’s a bit frustrating to deal with. I guess the only other option would be not to set up recurring transactions. I hope someone can fix this problem. And also the ability to add more categories. Other than that it’s a decent app.

    Needed a new check book app. One I had hasn't been updated in 4 years and thought it was time. Got the lifetime plan. Not sure if it's really worth the price. The app icon needs updating and made to render on Android correctly. The ability to rearrange the accounts is also busted. Hopefully the dev will fix the issues and make improvements over time to make the cost value worth it.
  • It’s a great app but needs improvement Jun 27, 2020

    By mike hdhdjdkshshshd
    I love the app but there are a few bug that need to be fixed. I have had problems with the math got screwed up and everything was incorrect. Wasn’t match up with the money that was in my account and something just wasn’t right. All transactions were right but the total number wasn’t.its has also stopped letting me make accounts and keeps telling me to upgrade which I already am signed up for the year. They also need to add options like taking pictures of receipts and saving them to that transaction. They should also give you the option to list and price every item so each item could be saved and calculated.( example Cereal price and dates of purchase to total them up to how much you spent on cereal for the month/year) I wish there was also a way to contact them when there is issues with the app.
  • Ignore Searches Claiming Top 5 checkbook apps Apr 23, 2019

    By NicknameNickname1
    I’m a professional in my mid 30’s. I wanted a convenient, portable and seamless solution to a paper checkbook. This did the job at first. I was using the free version and had 4 accounts - biz chkng, biz savings, personal chkng and personal savings. Then I got a new phone. Downloaded the app, signed in, and went to “sync.” Didn’t work. Deleted the app. Reinstalled. Signed in. Removed accounts (because they wouldn’t sync) then went to add the account and start over. Nope. NOTIFICATION: You must be a pro user to have more than one account. CONTACTED CUSTOMER SERVICE. Dodged my question and simply said I have to pay to enter my accounts again. 1) plenty of free checkbook apps out there. It’s not good enough to pay. 2) I’m tired of companies having people sign up for subscriptions which was a trend that started after 2008 financial crisis so that companies could have predictable, continuous sources of revenue despite slowing “sales”. It’s lazy and arrogant. Keep working to earn my business and hard earned money by offering new features. Now I have no records of all my financial transactions. I got a one sentence response from customer service telling me I can only add one account. To me, effectively, they lied about telling me I’d have access to my financial checkbook. When it comes to money, this is not a matter that you f*i*c*k with.
  • Synchronization is still an issue Jul 24, 2021

    By JLBP67
    So we started out in the beginning as only my husband had the app on his phone, then after a considerable amount of time of at least six months to one year I decided that I would also use this app. Now we do pay for the subscription so that it will sync across both of our devices for obvious reasons. On a regular basis and I would say regular to me is if this happens more than once every three months then this is a problem especially if this is used to track my cash in multiple accounts on a daily basis. So yes there continues to be the issue where my checkbooks are not updated even if I refresh multiple times, turn off my device, and in the end I have to delete the app and reinstall. Unfortunately I guess you could say we don’t really have a choice to switch to another app because we’ve use this now for years so doing so would actually cause us to lose The extensive data that we have spent years entering into this app. Other than that it’s great but I would like the synchronization issue to be fixed. And yes we do use the export data option to transfer all of that information so we have that as a back up as well but again the syncing is an issue if it’s not working!
  • Few things that seem obvious Nov 26, 2019

    By CeKinakaPickUp
    I came to this app because MyCheck Register stopped updating. This apps’ recurring transfer is not as intuitive. With my other app I was able to program transactions to come out every Thursday for instance. This app only gives you a starting date and the “every week” option-which doesn’t populate on the same day of the week every week. This apps recurring transfer is also very buggy in general. I’ve had to cross compare the app to my bank statement almost weekly (which is exactly the sort of thing this app is supposed to prevent) because the app seems to add duplicates of recurring transactions. I also noticed that editing the recurring transfer in the recurring transactions menu does not update the future transactions. I have to go back and update it manually. This goes for amount and account updates. Lastly, if I’m exporting my transactions, I feel I should have the option to export individual accounts. I give it this amount of stars because of the GUI/ease of use and the cloud sync. A lot of register apps don’t seem to have sync options that provide instant updates for spouses. That’s mostly what my wife and I were looking for.

    App itself is great, but customer service is not. I changed phones and I've reached out to transfer my lifetime membership to my new phone, but they never responded to my inquiry. If they're able to resolve this issue, I'd be willing to update my review.
  • It’s Just OK still in the hunt May 31, 2019

    By Charmed926
    This app has been OK, I purchased the $9.99 to be able to have the ability to have a functional checkbook app without ads that my husband and I can use with our joint checking account. However, recurring payments/salary deposits NEVER seem to sync and our apps are constantly not in line with the other. It’s very frustrating to have 2 different balances on his app and mine and then I’m constantly checking our bank account to find the discrepancy only to discover it’s the reoccurring payments causing all the fuss. And while I can manually put them in, I shouldn’t have to. This should be part of a functioning $10 app that I purchased. Instead it just pisses me off every time I use it. I’m on the hunt for something better, and though, the app already has my money I don’t recommend it if you are sharing the app with someone else to track expenses, if you’re single and only you are maintaining the app, then it’s fairly perfect.
  • Annoying bugs Dec 27, 2014

    By Ssdog45
    I had used this app for over a year and liked it until the last update; now it's bugs are infuriating. Seeing an overview of accounts is impossible because the app reorders the accounts and no matter what I do, I cannot put the accounts in any order that makes sense to ME. The app just goes nuts and reorders everything EVERY TIME. The ads are completely ridiculous, not only are they full screen and frustrating when you are trying to quickly enter/see info (the whole point of this app), the ads also play sound which is VERY unwelcome. I have written 3 emails to the developers and have gotten no response. I will not purchase this app because of the issue with the out-of-order accounts. I also want something that will sync across multiple devices. I will pay for an app that works, but I guess this is not the one.
  • Was great before last update May 6, 2020

    By latingurlie01
    I’ve used this app for years to track three accounts. I think I paid for it back in the day when I first transitioned to an app instead of an actual register to keep track of my spending. Over the last month I have reached out 3 times regarding duplicate transactions appearing on all my reoccurring transactions. The bad thing is that they will duplicate the current transaction, but it is also duplicating previous period transactions sometimes 5 times. I was told to delete the bad data and the remove duplicates in the settings which I do every time this happens but it continues. I also stopped getting responses after my first inquiry. Hope this gets fixed I don’t want to find another app but I can’t keep guess what is correct and how far back I need to look.
  • It’s great... if you pay for it Feb 4, 2020

    By scramblzes
    It use to be a free great app. However, recently they put ad’s in the app. I totally am okay with getting some ad’s to keep the app free but there were so many I couldn’t do anything without an ad popping up. I ended up paying the monthly fee to get rid of ads because I didn’t want to lose all my info. I feel like I was suckered into getting the monthly subscription but I do like the app. It’s just sad they made it unusable unless you pay. I am also frustrated because they have been harassing me to make a review for weeks and I didn’t want to be I'm so angry about it popping up multiple times when I use the app I ended up writing this not so great review. I do not like to be harassed and I’m not very happy with the app so I didn’t want to review it. But I had to.
  • I liked this app however Oct 5, 2020

    By Bushido3319
    I purchased it and had my husband purchase it durning a time we were retiring and was paying off bills and keeping well need records within a month all data was eased on both apps we were devastated I contacted them and didn’t get any response I loved how it worked it was perfect for us! I think I never figure out how to print however life was so chaotic at that time and we were so stressed that I didn’t spend a lot of time trying to figure it out.I felt it was the best one out there for us! We’ve been retired for four years and has rarely used it we decided if we do perhaps we should take pictures it this time to keep from losing our data I’m hoping that has been improved. Great! app my problem was losing data
  • Check Registry Dec 31, 2019

    By ghyhunhhdnndn
    I have been using this app for about five years, at one time I had my checking, second checking, and my savings accounts on this without charge. I accidentally deleted one, and was unable to enter into the system again, unless I paid a monthly fee. I switched phones and poof, went the other account. I am now down to my only account, the main checking account. The app itself is pretty simple and pretty straight to the point. If there was a one time charge to add other accounts like I had the before, I would definitely think it would be worth, but a monthly fee, I’ll pass and find another app elsewhere, or maybe I’d go back to the days of using an actual check registry.

    I have been using this for a while now probably a couple of years. Just got a new phone and backed up the data from the app to both Dropbox and Google drive and when I installed the app on the new phone and restored the data from either cloud, it says no file found. I went directly to Dropbox and Google drive and the files are there, so I don't know why the app doesn't see it. I lost all my data and now I have to enter it all again manually. So now I am looking for a different solution.

    I am changing this to one star. I transfered devices. To download my data the app said I had to subscribe. I subscribed on my old phone and did the backup. I went to upload to the new device and it said I needed to subscribe again. So I literally have the developer$20 for 2 minutes of use on the old phone then can't upload unless I give them another$20 . I emailed the vendor and got a non relevant response. Use caution.
  • Started out great ….then it went off the rails May 1, 2021

    By Kathdd64
    I got this app about four months ago. It started out great. It did everything you said it would. Then in March it started going crazy. First everytime I switched an entry to cleared it would duplicate the entry instead of clear it. Then it started to duplicate my monthly recurring charges. Then it deleted some deposits and doubled others. Then when my balance was way off and I went back to look at previous months I saw that the app has quadrupled or more all of my recurring charges-FROM THE PAST- i know it just happened as I balance my account weekly and it always balances before this. I stopped using it but left it active to see what would happen. It’s been four days. Day two the app duplicated my deposits from the first of May. Day four it duplicated them yet again. Your app. Currently shows my account having $11,000 more dollars than it does. Needless to say I am deleting its immediately ans have already cancelled my subscription. If you are Looking for a checkbook app do yourself a favor and find a better one than this piece of crap.

  • Synced and data trashed May 25, 2018

    By Thirdtimesacharmiguess
    I’m one of those ppl that doesn’t rate apps, but I’m so upset right now I could spit nails. I’ve been using this app since 2014 and really loved it. I just got my husband to start using it because of the update. Well this evening I went to sync my data because I noticed it was off. I chose to sync from the cloud so I wouldn’t messed up my husband’s transactions and it dumped a bunch of trash accounts onto my phone. It appeared to be 3 of each account I had except for my main account. I chucked it up and started trying to adjust the accounts and deleted the duplicate accounts. I synced again, and now there is only one account and the data isn’t even accurate. I started reading the reviews and noticed this seem to be an issue many others are having. I feel the developers should have warned ppl that there was an issue before we lost all data. I really liked this app. It’s a shame I can’t trust it anymore.
  • Have used this app for years Feb 14, 2019

    By Jmfannell
    I have used this app for years and I love it. It does what I need it to do! Why the 1 Star? Back in December 2018, it is now February 2019 I purchased the upgrade for $2.99 a month to get rid of all the ads. Well the upgrade never worked and I still see all the annoying advertisements. I emailed the company, they were quick to respond apologized and said that they are working on an update to fix the bug. I asked for a refund since I am not getting what I paid for. They told me I have to get the refund issued through Apple. But Apple is telling me that the company has to issue the refund. I have emailed the company multiple times and now they are no longer responding. I just want an app to do what I am paying monthly for it to do! If not then refund my money and I will find something else. Now they show an upgraded version for $9.99 a month. Why would I pay that if the $2.99 version isn’t working.
  • DO NOT RECOMMEND. Mar 23, 2021

    By Kris10 D.
    I broke my phone in February and had a different checkbook app. When I got a new phone, all of my transactions were gone because it was not an app that backed up. I didn’t want that to happen again, so I bought the Premium version of this app. I loved that it had a login because I would log in anywhere and it would bring up my account info... until it didn’t. I’m still on premium since I paid for a whole year, however, I logged in on my iPad and my accounts were gone. No info was there... pulled it back up on my phone and it was the same issue... accounts and transactions were gone!! I tried to hit the restore button, but it didn’t work. So I was stuck trying to figure out what I had budgeted for bills vs how much I actually had in my account. I emailed them twice and have yet to receive a response. If you want a go to digital checkbook app, I do not recommend this one. Look elsewhere!
