Editors' review

Mac-HaBu for Mac provides you with the tools needed to keep track of your finances, generate invoices, and calculate taxes. The biggest obstacle to using this paid product is the unrefined user experience, from the haphazard feature structure, to the sub-optimal window placement, to the untranslated labels and tooltips.

During installation, Mac-HaBu for Mac asks you to create a database and choose whether to enable options like a tax key, cost center, reference date, and a reference number. Once launched, the app overlaps several windows and reveals a floating palette as the main interface. From there you can access windows like a client picker, transaction entry, account summary, transaction reports, balance sheet, budget, offers, invoices, as well as a wizard for a step-by-step creation of a new account, transaction, and asset entries. Many options have highly overlapping functionality, while system shortcuts like Select All (Command+A) have been overwritten to open other windows. Moreover, many options and labels have not been translated from German. On the plus side, all fields have explanatory tooltips, the transaction entry fields are able to save text as a default, and you can use your AddressBook to populate client information.

If you're looking for a financial management software for your freelance business or small firm, and you use Macs exclusively, Mac-HaBu for Mac will likely disappoint you. The software's structure and interface leave much to be desired. Still, if you use computers across different operating systems, this product might be useful as it has versions for Windows and Linux, as well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mac-HaBu for Mac 14.
