    Looking for a Computer Program

    There may be someone who can help me here.

    I'm looking for a simple program (for Mac OS X) that I can use to keep track of my finances (income, expenditures, etc.) that's easy to use and free. I'm closing in on 21, and it's becoming readily apparent to me that I might want to keep track of my money. My parents are still helping me out, but I figure that since I'm paying out of my own accounts (duh) for my apartment, electricity and what not, I would like to keep track of where my money is going, and how quickly.

    Are there any programs out there for free? Maybe like Quicken? I don't know, but I figure there's enough college students on here that maybe someone can help. There's a reason I'm not in the business college here, so simple = good.

    Thanks!

    I really liked a program called GnuCash and have used it about a year. I'm using it on Windows, but its website says that it works on OS X. You might check it out and see if it works for you. Free Accounting Software | GnuCash

    Here's some online options:

    Mvelopes, a subscription service, and

    Mint.com
    , which is free.

    Re: Looking for a Computer Program

    There are a couple that are pretty good. iCash, MoneyWell, iBank, CheckBook Pro, Cha-Ching, Squirrel, etc. There is a good listing Apple - Downloads - Mac OS X - Business & Finance

    Note that Quicken 2008 didn't come out for the Mac because they are working on a completely new product written from scratch for 09 that should be out sometime later this year.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
