Editors' Review

+

Just Checking is an incredibly easy-to-use program that lets users keep track of checking account transactions. Although it is not as full-featured as the big-name personal finance programs, it's a good choice for users who need a lightweight program to manage their checking accounts.

The program's interface is attractive and very intuitive. All of the program's features are arranged with graphical buttons across the top, making it incredibly easy to find what you're looking for. It's easy to add, edit, and delete transactions, as well as search for them. The program's built-in Help file is well-written and does a good job of explaining the program's features. Overall, we found the program very easy to use, and we were adding transactions within moments of opening the program. As for features, there's nothing here that really blew us away, but the program does the basics and does them well. We were relieved to see that Just Checking does allow users to import data from other programs, including QIF and OFC files. Users can also print checks from Just Checking, which is a nice feature to have. Although users who are looking for a feature-filled alternative to programs like Quicken won't find it with Just Checking, it is a great choice for users who just need the basics.

Just Checking is free to try but has a 20-transaction limit in the trial version. The program installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

"not powerful enough"

April 09, 2012  |  By mokamanu

 |  Version: Just Checking 3.19

Pros

free to try

Cons

cannot make "memo" reports (even though it says it's able to); auto-fills are not very friendly; entry fields are separate from the checkbook-like field, which creates an extra step.

Summary

glad to have the opportunity to try it; unfortunately i won't be buying this.

"Seems unstable in Windows 7"

October 03, 2011  |  By Coldjet

 |  Version: Just Checking 3.19

Pros

Ease of use.

Cons

In my experience, transactions are not always saved and tool functions did not work (colors). I uninstalled and reinstalled the program with no improvement. In my opinion, the uninstall is a bit messy with several files remaining here and there.

Summary

If it works for you, it's a nice program. The instant you buy it, whether or not you are satisfied, you own it. I requested my money back from JustApps and was told they do not do refunds and that the product works fine in Windows 7. They offered to troubleshoot my issues. I elected to change to another program.

"Great software for tracking your expenses"

June 24, 2011  |  By gsmiller88

 |  Version: Just Checking 3.19

Pros

Easy to use, Intuitive interface, low price

Cons

I would like to be able to customize the interface more

Summary

After recently switching back to a Windows PC from Mac OS X, I had to find a new software to help me keep track of my checking account transactions. I was using iBank which did the job very well, albeit it had more features than I needed. After trying countless apps for Windows I finally stumbled upon Just Checking. I am amazed how great this little app works! It's simple and I understood how to use it within a matter of minutes. I don't need an app that shows me pie graphs of how much money I have or how much money I should spend, I just need one that will let me track my expenses, plain and simple. For $14.95 you can't beat Just Checking. One thing I would like to change would is the ability to customize the layout of the transactions. For instance, I would like to be able to bold the Name and Amount of the transactions so they stand out better. However this is a very small caveat and will not keep me from recommending Just Checking to everyone I know.
