Editors' Review

Checkbook Ease Freeware will help you take charge of both your checkbook and budget. You will have to spend a considerable amount of time manually entering your bank information, but once you're done it, it'll give you a clear overview of your finances.

This free program is impressive with its practically limitless options, but the number may overwhelm the less experienced. Users are shown a large screen outlining all their accounts in the upper right where bank account, credit, and loan balances are showcased. Dominating the bottom of the screen are recent transactions and to the right are the tools for entering a new transaction. In addition, there are buttons that open up menus for Options, Colors, Accounts, and Budget. Checkbook Ease is impressive with its ability to give instant glances at a wide financial swath. There are a number of reports that can be run, and clicking on any item will bring up a chart or informative box to provide more insight.

Our complaints are fairly minimal on this product. One big issue we had was the program's claim to download bank financials from the Internet and the glaring lack of direction on how to accomplish this important task. Otherwise, all information will have to be entered manually, which can take some time. Still, if you have the patience to spend a little time with the program, it's certainly worth a download.
