"Has promise but ain't there yet!"

February 02, 2013  |  By whyja

 |  Version: SmartLedger 3.6

Pros

The idea is good. Simple, doesn't try to do too much that isn't needed. The layout is reasonable.

Cons

Very poor graphics...text can hardly be read at times; very small display and when magnified the text is poor. I may have had a bad copy or an old practice run or something because the great instructions mentioned by another reviewer certainly are sparse. I am a power user and this thing is not finished. I cannot switch from accounts to ledger although there is supposed to be a back-arrow. It sure isn't on mine. Beware of the delete button; what you think you're deleting may not be what's deleted. And it is definitely NOT intuitive...at least my version. Sorry but this thing isn't ready for big time and I'm not looking for something pretty or glitzy...I just want something that works and does the job.

Summary

It's clunky and reminds me of the primitive nature of the old video games. It might be better on some Windows but the Mac version is very limited. What I have seems very far away from what I see described in most of the other reviews.

"SO INCREDIBLY USEFUL"

November 10, 2009  |  By robertink

 |  Version: SmartLedger 3.4

Pros

SIMPLE TO USE. PRINTS OUT EACH ACCOUNT SEPERATELY

Cons

NOT ONE NEGATIVE THING TO SAY. WHO COULD WANT ANYTHING MORE FOR SIMPLE ACCOUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary

Want you to know that "I GOT IT''. And, I want to thank you for taking the time to call me yesterday. I was driving and did not answer, but received the message. That was very thoughtful of you.

Also, I want you to know that I am really enthused with your Smart Ledger. It is so easy to use. i am building a house in Mississippi and have already am using S.L. to keep track of the cost of building and my other associated expenses with the property.

Now, I want to create another S.L. for accounting of my small business ''SINO-MERA LLC''.

"Best $20 I ever spent"

June 14, 2009  |  By Mopach

 |  Version: SmartLedger 3.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Okay, it was $23 Cdn. Still, it was well worth it.
As a very disorganized person who dreads collecting receipts, when all I had to look forward to was a nightmare in Excel, I started to look for accounting software for Mac. I came across SmartLedger, downloaded it for a trial and was immediately hooked. I had tried trial versions of other programs and all of them gave me headaches.
Sure, it might not be the most aesthetically pleasing program out there, but I'll take functionality over appearance any day. SmartLedger is very easy to use. Setting up the taxes, GST and PST, was a snap. I actually enjoy inputting my data now. I printed out a report to see how that works -- again, very easy. I've also been able to tailor a couple of the functions to my own specific needs (I am both employed and self-employed in the arts).
As a further note, I emailed Alex, the developer, this evening with a couple of questions regarding functions that weren't screaming "Here I am!" at me. Within two hours I'd received a reply with detailed instructions. For such an immediate and attentive response, I say bravo!

"Just What it Claims to Be"

November 27, 2007  |  By strangeseamonster

 |  Version: SmartLedger 2.4b

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm not a number guy. I am also not an advocate of shoe box accounting, but unfortunately I tend to find myself in that position at the end of each year. It is so good to be able to just pull stuff out of that box and enter it as it comes, letting the software sort and collate it instead of me doing the dry run with receipts stacked in date piles before actually entering the data into something I've forgotten how to use.

How to make this application useful is so obvious that I truly almost didn't even bother exploring the sample entries. It doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It is a straight forward entry system that creates a clear presentation of my accounts that is useful to me and also to my accountant.

Even if you payed for it, tried it and decided it didn't meet all your needs, or you simply out grew it at some point, hey it's $20. My time is worth more than that, I'm sure yours is too. It has saved me loads of number thinking aggravation I'd rather leave to an accountant, so that I can work on other things I'm much better at. My accountant doesn't expect me to have a pro accounting application or to know how to use it, but does appreciate an organised presentation, (even if basic), which saves them time and me cost. SmartLedger does this for me anyway. This simple app also allows you to usefully print or export your information for your accountant into a variety of formats useful for a number of accounting packages if required.

I am a happy paid up Shareware user.

"Perfect Software!"

July 24, 2007  |  By wenzeldesign

 |  Version: SmartLedger 2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been searching for software like this for a LONG time. I was so frustrated with the other accounting software that is available out there. They are all way too complicated and time consuming to learn. I needed something that would be easy to learn and make sense. This software has made such a huge difference in the time I spend doing book work. Thanks a ton for putting the time into developing it!!!!!!!

Summary

Filemaker applications just plain suck as does this because it's a Filemaker app. It's UI is chunky and inelegant, functionality is slow and quirky. These are general limitation so every Filemaker application I've ever seen. The developer would dow him/herself some good by moving away from Filemaker.
