Been using this software for a while now, infinitely helpful, strongly recommend! Helps to control my spending which is one hell of a challenge!

EDIT: Just to add a little justification which some users on here may appreciate in terms of DRM. The devs seem pretty cool and haven't caused me any hassle with regards to use of this software. I must have installed this software a good 30-40 times in the last year on at least 8 different laptops/macs/desktops reinstalls etc, in use at the same time on different IP's, my bro using it at home, me using it at work, cafe's etc. Never had any issues, always seamless and stress free. Feels like I actually own the software which is nice in todays world

Software itself takes some getting used to, when I purchased I offered to let both my bros use it and me parents, out of which only myself and one brother have stuck to it and reaped the benefits. Rest of the family now looks at our finance reports etc with envy as we can see exactly where every one of our pennies has gone and is going. Ow look, I have spent £43.19 on Steam games since August across 10 different transactions etc! So easy to do everything and keep track which other methods I have tried in the past have never accomplished.

Can't say this software is going to be good for Valve though, my spending on games has seen a very large decline since using this software!!!!

I was thinking the same thing. But if it can save me $45, it's payed for itself.

Our average user turnaround in finances is around $200 in the first month (that's average, so I can't guarantee it). But it's encouraging to hear.

Make sure you check out the tutorials and free classes here:

@RodeoClown Does it work on Euros? And how viable is it to an European user?
RodeoClown Dec 19, 2012 @ 11:52am 
It definitely works on Euros (you can set your currency when creating a budget) - one of our devs is in Switzerland, and he uses it just fine there (he found it so useful that he made an iPhone app for it, and we hired him full time to work on it!)

Just wanted to justify my original post as got couple of people message me.

I just started using it - and the online support is worth the asking price alone. I've gone through a good number of the videos/tutorials and I already feel like I have learned a lot and know more about better budget management.

For me it's useful because I've tried using other budgeting methods/software before, but with all the good support for this software, it takes away a lot of the confusion.

I'd rate it...

So far I just use excel spreadsheets which work fine and are really simple.
Still, I think I'll try the demo. I'm not interested in fancy graphs though as I can already do that myself.
