Cashculator Free is a personal finance calculator and collection of utilities for helping you determine your future financial decisions. Cashculator Free is not just a set of spreadsheets, but a set of tools that help guide you through several important financial calculations. The app installs easily and when launched gives you a mini-tutorial on getting started.
Cashculator Free starts with simple financial analysis tools such as budgeting and determining cash flow. From there, you can do what-if scenarios. The free version of Cashculator allows you to save two scenarios and work forward only three months. To see more future planning or save more scenarios you need to upgrade to the full version of Cashculator. There's nothing in Cashculator Free that is not already on the Web or in other spreadsheets in one form or another, but Cashculator Free is an attractive and friendly way to get your financial situation understood and plan for the future. The graphic layout and good use of colors, as well as the tutorial, all are excellent.
If you are not a financial whiz, have a solid grasp on your financial situation, or want to do some what-if calculations, Cashculator Free is as good a tool as you'll find for Mac OS. We were impressed with this app and upgraded to the paid version so we could fully exploit its features. Start with the free app and see how you like it.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Cashculator 1.3.
