"Fantastic program"

July 19, 2014  |  By rafikibubu

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

Simple to use, and easily able to be tailored to accommodate your own unique financial situation. Also, it's designed and maintained by a very helpful, courteous man who ALWAYS answers forum questions on the product.

Cons

It's a little bit rudimentary in it's presentation. But the pros far-outweigh the cons.

Summary

I have been a religious user of this program since 2008 (when it was called Simple D Budget). It was instrumental in allowing me to get to the bottom of my spending issues. It was dizzying trying to find a simple way to organize all the overlapping bills I had, and how much I was really making. Sure there are other solutions out there that may have done the trick ... but this is the one I'd stumbled upon, and I'm very thankful I did.

All on one page. It doesn't say it is compatible with windows 7 but that is what I have and it works beautifully!

Not aware of any!

Summary

If you are looking for a simple budget software. This is it.

"Latest version of Simple D"

August 13, 2012  |  By hsamit64

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

Seems like it could have been simple to use.

Cons

Took down my dell latitude. only used it for 15 minutes until it froze up. I had to hold in my power button for 5 seconds to turn off my laptop. after that, my laptop hard drive died.

Summary

I thought this was going to be a stand alone program that didn't access the internet to enter my budget info. deleted my deductions section in income and deductions and it crashed my hard drive after 15 minutes of use. Hard drive is now dead!!! Guess I'll go back to using my Microsoft money.

"I Love this Budgeting software, however...."

February 06, 2012  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

A new updated version can be found at : http://code.google.com/p/dsbudget/downloads/list
and this is the latest version of the software and has many more features and what I will be commenting on.

It is very easy to use, has a nice user friendly appeal along with a good visual layout. Once the first months page is set up then it is used as the template for the following months and changes are very easy to make.

You can make back up copies to your computer and the latest version (dsbudget 2.0.22) can be used along side Excel.

It is so simple and is great for budgeting and keeping an eye on your spending.

Cons

None that I can find.

Summary

Out of all the free budgeting software I have tried and looked at, this one is by far the best. I had it installed on my last computer and I am back to using it again. Marvellous.

It is for home budgeting so if you want a more powerful type of software then this one won't be for you. But for those of us that just want to do simple budgeting then I reckon it's the best.

Once again for the newer, updated version, visit : http://code.google.com/p/dsbudget/downloads/list

"Simplicity itself."

February 02, 2012  |  By gearoid55

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

It's easy to use, not much of a learning curve, just what I wanted. Keeps a record of monthly income and expenses in a very simple way.

Cons

No cons. The program lives up to it's name, and free.

Summary

If, like myself you are looking for a simple program to keep an eye on your basic finances, this is a great little program. If you are looking for an in depth and secure financial program I suggest you go upmarket.

"Great product"

September 05, 2011  |  By PoliticalInsanity

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

Simple to use, nice charts, easy to read, easy to manipulate, saves every last used document.

Cons

No paid version that I am aware of. Help file doesn't really contain any help data.

Summary

Love this budgeting software, goes from month to month easily and everything is adjustable. The only real problem I had with it is that some of the features that would be available in a paid version happen not to be available because there is no paid version.

"Great and easy to use product"

July 27, 2011  |  By charleyme

 |  Version: SimpleD Budget 1.05

Pros

Best software I've found online that's free and not based online

Cons

Print feature does not work

Summary

This product is upgraded and now called dsBudget on the creators webpage. It is now run out of your web browser but you can use it offline. I like using the SimpleD Budget software better because it has tabs between Budget, Expense, and Balance sheets, whereas the newer version is all on one long page that you have to scroll through. The advantage with downloading the dsBudget as well is you can still open your SimpleD files and print them, which you can't do with SimpleD alone. You can download dsBudget by searching

If you are looking for a simple to use and understand budget software, then look no further..Some people were saying they couldn't print with this, but it does allow you to print and also allows for saving so info is not lost,..
