"Simple and Effective"

August 02, 2014  |  By pickripper

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.9.617

Pros

Simple and visual. Put your payments and sources of income on a calendar and predict with relative accuracy how much money you'll have at different points in the future. I'm a "visual" person, so this sort of calendar-based setup works really well for me.

Cons

The interface looks a little dated. Also, the user can add images to help identify different expenses and sources of income, but he or she is limited to the images provided by the Budget Calendar program. I'd like to be able to add images of my own sometimes.

Summary

For anyone who considers himself or herself a "visual" person, this program is a simple and effective. It's certainly worth the registration fee.

Updated on Aug 10, 2014

I just realized that the user CAN add his or her own images to the C:\Program File\MiShellSoft\Budget\images directory. My apologies to the developer.

"Basic yet powerful personal finance tracker and planner"

July 21, 2012  |  By Clint15226

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.8.284

Pros

Calendar format provides quick visuals for future planning. Simple format is practical and useful for managing personal transactions.

Cons

If certain manual adjustments are made to the total balance, and then subsequent expenses are added, the total balance is not automatically adjusted to reflect the changes, but this is minor and easy to manually correct when such adjustments are made.

This isn't meant to be a tool for managing complex investments, so I don't consider its relative simplicity to be a con.

Summary

I really love this product. It's super easy to enter income and expenses. You can designate income or expenses as recurring or one-time, add categories, and view cumulative activity in dollar and percentage amounts. Easily drag and drop payment dates on the calendar to see how available balances changes by the day...it's very useful to keep track of spending and stay on budget.

"Basic But Helpful"

May 29, 2010  |  By thepick

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.5

Pros

I'm a "visual" kind of person, so the calendar layout works really well for me

Cons

It's quite straightforward to use, but minor improvements could be made to make the user experience a little easier

Summary

This product is exactly what I was looking for. I have certain predictable expenditures that come up each month, and I need to budget for these expenditures constantly. By typing in my spending patterns and my known bills and financial commitments I can look ahead at future months and see if I'll have enough money. I just need software to keep a running total of the cash that is scheduled to come in and the cash that is scheduled to leave and ensure that I'm "in the black". This software does that very well. It is basic, though, so if you want fancy options you might want to give this a pass. It's one step up from writing all your expenditures down on a calendar and doing calculations by hand.

"Best budget program I have seen"

July 13, 2009  |  By carlosloco7

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.4

Pros

Quick download, easy to see where your money goes

Cons

It can a little tricky when you add transactions but if you read the help files you will be okay. You can view your calendar for a 12 month period only. That sucks.

Summary

Extremely good program. I can see when I'll get paid, when my bills will be due, how much money I will have at a certain time and how much I will have saved up by a certain date. It is very well worth it. I used to get overdraft fees from my bank about every now and then because I wasn't sure how much money I had. Or I had to borrow to pay a bill here and a bill there because I spent too much during the weekend. Ever since I got this software I have savings of about 300 a month because every time I withdraw cash from my bank account I know my calendar budget is going to be off so I keep it to a minimum. I love it, it's affordable and easy to use.

"Speechless"

May 22, 2009  |  By didyouknowy

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.4

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

Can't find anything wrong with it.

Summary

It's everything I been looking for. I have never commented on a product, but I would have to say, this would be the first and maybe last time I would comment on a program.

"Simply Perfect"

March 07, 2009  |  By FamilyAir

Pros

user friendly, inexpensive

Cons

i have nothing bad to say about this product

This budget software is excellent. Nothing complicated about it, and it's very inexpensive. I purchased it before the trial even ended. The trial version doesn't limit the software's capabilites like many other product do. I love it!

"Easy to use; provides info visually"

October 03, 2008  |  By paulmorris

 |  Version: Budget Calendar 1.3

Pros

Visually strong so it's easy to get a quick view of your monthly budget and it's easy to adjust budget to income. There is a good place for placing all of your monthly bills. The icons are easy to use. The overall emphasis is on simplicity.

Cons

The icons probably need to be modernised somewhat. The program price is relatively low and the features recognise this fact.

Summary

Overall this is a very good budget device with a satisfactory range of features for someone who wants to do a visually based budget, without being overly complicated. I had a need to communicate with the program designer, who was quick to respond and most efficient.
