"Where does all my money go?" A paper check register can't categorize your transactions or report cash flow over time, and it'll never balance itself.

What you really need is a friendly personal finance tool that gets the basics just right and keeps things simple. That's where we come in.

Version 2.3.2
Review by RobertRegets

I like it so much that I bought the App Store version too. - The title says it all. I have been using CheckBook for years. It was a no-brainer to purchase the App Store version. Now I have the same great program that I have been using combined with the ease of installing and updating via the Mac App Store. The standard version is fine for me. CheckBook is a very convenient way to keep track of my bank account and credit card activity. The dedicated password-protected app is much better than me trying to create my own method with a text file or spreadsheet. I also appreciate being able to export my info in order to archive it outside of CheckBook.

Version 2.5.4
Review by Big Daddy NJ

Not Good - Where to begin? I have had this app for awhile. It is awful slow to open, to tab through an entry, to do anything. It is just slow like it is hanging up or something. Then one day it decided that it had to create a new account. Unsure of what it was doing I hit "ok". It wiped all my data out all my accounts information was lost. The appp does not backup automatically like I thought it did so the info is gone forever. Nice one there. Oh and it's most annoying character? It speaks the amount you enter as you enter it. Nothing else just the amount. Then if you leave it alone it proceeds to read aloud the entry you just made. There is no option to turn it off either. You have to mute the computer. Totally stinks for even the most basic functions, there is no synching to the IPhone or IPad….only on the Mac. I am shopping for a better app that works. Don't waste your money on this like I did.

Review by Bflotom

Love Checkbook - I moved from Win7 and Quicken to Mac and needed a checkbook app. i wasn’t about to spend $50-70 for Quicken especially after the reviews I read. So i tried several apps and I find Checkbook works very well. I’m not interested in my net worth or how my funds are doing. I have sources for that. I just want to be able to track my checking account balance and balance it. Checkbook works

Review by virghel

Checkbook - I recently upgraded to Sierra and wasn’t able to migrate my checkbook without another costly investment in Quicken. I read the reviews and was not impressed with what I read about the latest version of Quicken. Since I already felt recent versions of Quicken had gotten much to complicated, I decided to try Checkbook. I’m glad I did, it works well and in some cases fixes issues that Quicken needed to make. It’s not perfect, but it does what I need it to do and eliminates my need to play the subscription game.

Indispensable Tool For Mac Users - I love this app! I used to use Microsoft Money when I had a windows computer but had to switch to CheckBook when I got into Macs. I didn’t expect too much from it since it was priced so reasonably but I have been pleasantly surprised! You can’t go wrong for the money!

Review by yarrowblue

Homeowner - Great application for tracking your personal finances with accuracy. I adjusted to it well coming from other applications and I have used it now for a year and continue to appreciate it’s professional quality. The only hard part for me was figuring out how to balance it for the first time and not always understanding some of the financial vocabulary used (i.e. what’s a “split?”…I eventually figured it out but it was a mystery to me for awhile). I have had to make a consistent monthly adjustment since my first balance because I couldn't sync it with the dates of my bank statement. Not the app’s problem and I would highly recommend it to any other “typical/average” person who wants to keep track of their account without linking into a bank acct. directly for security concerns.
