Product Description
Space STG II Death Rain
Transfer funds between accounts
Space STG II Death Rain
Schedule recurring expenses
Take Charge of Your Finances

It's time to stop giving your bank free money from overdraft fees and nonsensical charges because of poor money management. It's easier than you think to handle your finances.

Checkbook takes the place of a paper checkbook. Simply add an account with its name and starting balance. You can add as many accounts as you like. Choose from seven currencies, and put password protection on the app. You can also restore previous balances, and create a backup for your accounts.

Transfer Funds

It's easy to transfer balances from account to account. Checkbook automatically deducts the amount you take from one balance to another. You won't have to fumble around with calculators or scratch out arithmetic on your regular checkbook. Set up scheduled transactions to be automatically deducted from an account, such as your Internet bill or rent.

Transactions Categories

In the More Options screen, there are 30 Transaction Categories, including Gasoline, Groceries, Student Loans, Utilities, and more. You can add your own Transaction Categories as well. Within an account, you can add or deduct specific Transaction Categories with all their details.

Unlike online bank statements, Checkbook always has your most up-to-date balances. Checkbook can't guarantee you'll never make another overdraft, but it will help you avoid that expensive mistake again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Easy, and handles automated transactions September 2, 2011
By Sam
Verified Purchase
First of all, this DOES NOT link to your bank info! It is NOT AN ONLINE BANKING APP. It is an electronic register - period. It DOES NOT think for you - it only does MATH and remind you of auto-transactions!

I've been using the Free version for over 6-months, and I love it. It makes tracking my expenses (checks, debit-card, auto-pay, and auto-deposits) so much easier, but it does take some effort to force yourself to use it at first. You have to update your info and make sure your auto-deductions, auto-payroll, etc. are correct and make adjustments (reconcile) as needed, just like balancing your check-book the old-fashioned way. Password protection is nice, as well as back-up to SD card, so your info is secure and up-to-date.

There is no access to the data from other sources, like your computer. This is a good thing, since your data is not being transmitted anywhere... it remains on your phone, only (despite what the paranoid masses say).

For those of you upgrading to the paid version from the free one, follow these steps so you won't lose any data, and it is easily transferred to the paid version:

Open Free version, select Menu > More Options > Backup
It will create a back-up point for today
Close Free version
Install Paid version (if you haven't already done so)
Open Paid version
Select Menu > More Options > Restore
Long-click on the restore point labeled for today's date
Select Restore
Your data will now be in the Paid version... you can now delete the Free one.

The Paid version has a few more features than the free version (and no ads), but takes up 5x the space on your phone... so if you don't mind the ads, and need to preserve space on your phone...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great App September 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
Love the app. Can keep track of different accounts in one place. Being able to customize transaction labels is a convenient feature. That you can save a backup of your info to your SD card is very nice. (This spared me a lot of time when I had to reset my phone).

Doesn't support landscape view, which is annoying. Opening and closing my physical keyboard sometimes clears information when I'm inputing a new transaction, which is really annoying. But neither is a real problem and doesn't detract from the overall usefulness of the app.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great app - love it! November 1, 2012
If you're like me & sometimes forget to record your credit/debit transactions, get this app! It's basically a customizable check register on your phone. I use it on a Samsung GS2, and before that on the HTC Evo 4G (possibly even on my Moto-Q before that). It's a quick and easy way to record transactions on the fly for multiple accounts. Whenever I pay a bill online or by phone, I record it with the confirmation# in the note space. It's not actually tied to your accounts, so no worries about unwanted access if your phone is stolen. There are a couple of minor gaps in the structure, but they are really, really minor (and I'm sure if I got off my butt and e-mailed the developers they'd be corrected within a week). Bottom line: this is what a practical app should be like. Get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars One thing missing September 18, 2011
By Linus

How many of you have repeat transactions that occur more than once a month? I do. I would like to see repeat transactions for one and two week intervals in the next update. Other than this small oversight by the developer, I like the application.

3.0 out of 5 stars Must be signed in to amazon app store to work. September 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
It looks like a great app, but I live in an area with spotty 3G at times. At one point I went to log a debit transaction and was informed that I must be logged in to amazon app store to use the app. I couldn't even check my balances. If you always have internet, then this is a great app. I, unfortunately do not.

4.0 out of 5 stars great app, but needs a little more November 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
I have been using ths app for about a week now and I love it, the only thing that needs to be added is I have auto deductions that happen weekly and there is no option for that. There should be options for weekly, bi-monthly, every two weeks, because I think that there are many people like me that have deductions withdrawn on their paydays.

Add that and it'll be 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, easy to read September 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had looked at various "checkbook" type apps. I really like the simple, clean interface of this app. It has the essentials.
PROS:
* Simple, clean account entry
* Automatic decimal point
* Allows you to create categories (no Auto, Car or Gasoline category but there is one for Vehicle Maintenance)
* Automatic color code for entries in side margin (green for deposits and red for withdrawals)
* Auto-alphabetize accounts
* Allows notes
* Can passcode (numbers only) for app security (see WARNING in Cons below)

Cons:
* Categories can be created but I was surprised there was not one already available for Charity
* WARNING: You must "Log out" to enable the security lock but you have to look in the menu to log out. Would like to see this on screen or offer auto-lock option on close.
