Version 1.0.16
Review by Skrumpologist

Debits & Credits! - I was looking for something simple to keep track of a few assets & liabilities and didn’t want to invest in any of the major applications because I just don’t need their features. I generally use MS Excel through VMware Fusion to cover all my sheet work, so small is the key for my use here. This app does a great job and functions perfectly. It is powerful enough to let you create accounts and set them as needed for depreciation, interest, labor, etc. So you are in control! Remember, of course an accounting app is for accountants. If you have no training or experience, you will want to take a crash course or two in financial accounting as a subject first to get some hands-on and learn your terminology.

Awful! - This is the most confusing accounting/invoicing app! I wasted an hour trying to figure out how to send an invoice and still didn't get it. To make it worse, I understood that the basic version was free. I was charged $2.79.
