Editors' Review

+

With AceMoney Lite, one can easily organize and track spending, build budgets, track investment performance, set up payment reminders and recurring bill payments, create reports and pie charts, and so much more, for free.

The program has an eye-friendly interface that is also fairly intuitive to use. To begin, just open the application, click on the account button for your one account, and provide all of the particulars as prompted. Once your account is set, you can manage your budget and set up categories from a very long list of possibilities, which is helpful for reporting how you are saving or spending money. (You can also name your own category, which seems to work best if you just edit the name of an existing category you don't plan to ever need instead of trying to figure out how to set a completely new category.) In some cases, you will automatically be taken to Yahoo Finance for information, where the information may or may not automatically repopulate your field in AceMoney Lite. You will need to consult the many Help menus to determine what is automatic and not, and how to make it so in the easiest way possible.

Although AceMoney Lite enjoys all of the features of the nonlite AceMoney, its disadvantage is that it is truly "lite" in that you can only manage one account. But for that one account, AceMoney Lite rivals well known (and often pricey) financial management programs in function and style, and is fairly easy to use, conserves your computer's resources, and steers well clear of pesky adware.

"Nice program for basic checking"

August 23, 2013  |  By josef76

 |  Version: AceMoney Lite 4.35

Pros

Easy to set up and enter transactions.

Cons

Careful making transaction entries. I entered a deposit and followed up with a check transaction. Oops! Forgot to reset transaction type to "Withdrawal." Entry was recorded as a deposit instead of a withdrawal. Didn't catch the error until I tried reconciling the account when my statement arrived. Would like to see the transaction default to Withdrawal after a deposit is made.

Summary

Other than that, Ace Money is a nice program for one that does not do banking on line.
Sigh.... I really miss my old check program, Microsoft Money, no longer in offered for Windows 7.

"It is just what I needed."

January 09, 2013  |  By Keithmj

 |  Version: AceMoney Lite 4.33.1

Pros

It has all the features I need. I wanted a program to use for keeping up with my expenditures and deposits, like a check book register, but able to use it on my netbook. I also like being able to see the reports on what categories my money is going to the most.

Cons

No cons yet.

Summary

Love this program.

"Does an excellent job and what it says. **See Summary**"

December 12, 2012  |  By ShepfromVA

 |  Version: AceMoney Lite 4.30

Pros

Imports Quicken files.

Cons

None seen so far.

Summary

Saw something about "Incredibar" in another review. If you watch the prompts during any install you have the option of not installing the crap. The load it in the install sequence hoping you miss it. Pay attention and get great software with no worries.

"I Absolutely Love This!!!"

December 04, 2012  |  By tonyspicer1966

 |  Version: AceMoney Lite 4.30

Pros

So simple to use. Does everything perfectly. I love the way you can set it to show you what bills are coming up soon (with adjustable lengths of time). Making reports is simple.

Cons

When I used the Free version (in 2005 or 2006), there was only one account. Now there are two free accounts. I think that's great for a Free program. One for checking and one for savings, or whatever you use. Most people I know do not have a lot of accounts.

Summary

I loved it so much, that when I opened and ran a small business for about six months (in 2010), I purchased the pro version to track all my business transactions as well as my personal expenses. It made looking up past purchases easy. Tracking expenses and income at tax time was easy. I can't express how grateful I am to have found this program.
