Editors' Review

+

Personal Finances offers users a chance to get organized and answer the age-old question, "Where is all my money going?" With this fairly simple program, your financial past is dissected, however it may not live up to every user's expectations.

This free unlimited trial excels at breaking down a family's spending. After inputting members of the family and their incomes, users choose from a range of categories for their expenses. Everything from mortgage, insurance, gas, gifts and any other items are catalogued. Once listed, the easy-to-read display offers users a glimpse at what percentage of their income goes to specific expenses over a period of time. Personal Finances' flexibility is its strongest suit, since users can add and remove expenses and have their totals and percentages instantly changed. This is great way to track and project a family's spending.

While it is a great way to get organized, the program's interface is less than desirable. Everything is simple, but there are several redundant buttons that appear at the top and side, performing essentially the same functions, which is confusing. In addition, we found no simple way to run reports other than the basic screen. This means no charts or graphs were available. Overall, those seeking a simple way to get a quick glimpse at their financial basics should find Personal Finances useful, but those seeking in-depth reporting will want to look elsewhere.

"Very easy, beautiful interface, but no reports."

April 02, 2012  |  By astral_cyborg

 |  Version: Personal Finances Home 4.0

Pros

Very easy to learn and use.
Good options.
Nice modern GUI.

Cons

No options for any kind of reports. The only way to have an overall view, is from the main window, but with no print out option.

Summary

If you don't mind getting reports, but just keeping track of your financial, I think that this application is great. Otherwise, try using something more complicated (I recommend Money Manager Ex).

"Initial balance never included."

June 22, 2010  |  By Ediblemunkey05

 |  Version: Personal Finances Home 4.0

Pros

Easy to customize different categories to fit your life. Automatically adds and subtracts transactions as you enter them.

Cons

Maybe I just missed something, but I could not get the program to include my account's initial balance.

Summary

Overall, this is a decent program for people looking to track their expenses. It's possible I missed an option somewhere, but I could not for the life of me get the program to include the initial balance in all of its calculations. It seems to be a better program for having a start of $0.00.

September 26, 2009  |  By D2cNow

 |  Version: Personal Finances 3.7

Pros

Visually appearing and so very easy to work with. Yet it has all that I need to manage my finances.

Cons

The only feature that I wanted but couldn't get in the free version was password protection. But this is available in the Professional version which I will get in a short while.

Summary

Good, Very Good. Thanks for you all's hard work and generosity.

"Free but useless"

May 14, 2008  |  By brew99

 |  Version: Personal Finances Lite 2.4

Pros

It was free - but read the negatives..

Cons

I downloaded this thinking it was going to be a simple program to use for finances without the overhead cost of the software. Unfortunately, the download is free for the lite version however the program doesn't do anything! The free download is so that the user can see how the program works. If you try to write anything in it, the program doesn't work and tells you to purchase the "real version". Don't waste your time with this one.

"Very simple and easy to use.."

September 11, 2007  |  By Alok Soni

 |  Version: Personal Finances Lite 1.62

Pros

My needs are little bit complex so i would rather use the Personal Finances Pro but Lite includes all the basic stuff so u can just download and start keeping tracks of all your expenses in a simple and easy to use software. I downloaded other programs but all of them have some learning curve but not so with Personal Finances. It is the probably the best and easiest among this category i have seen till now.
