    "GoodBudget is not one of the best apps on the market currently, there are many better ones that provide more features with less headache. I would avoid this app and go for something more established like Mint or Venmo."

    "I have been relying on this app as my online checkbook. Because of that I have completely replaced my putting entries on my checkbook but on this app instead. But I would have given this five stars if only it is also available on Android devices. My husband has an Android so he cant have this on his phone. "


Did you know experts believed the Romans invented checks in about 352 B.C? But the idea didn't catch on. It wasn't until the early 1500s in Holland wherein checks first got widespread usage. Checks are documented to what we call “checkbooks”. This checkbook is a booklet or a folder containing pre-printed paper instruments, which bank holders use to withdraw money from their checking account deposits. It is also considered a cash disbursement journal, as it records all the checks, outlays of the cash, and cash payments during an accounting period.

According to an article from Health Care Family, balancing a checkbook before was critical since there is no online account history to check. Why? Because you had to document every transaction in the free checkbook register to keep an accurate running balance. But nowadays, keeping track of financial accounts is a lot easier. This is due to the advent of online commerce and technology. Today, there are plenty of checkbook apps to balance your checkbook and keep your finances updated so you can instantly review your deposits and payments. Moreover, most transactions are now instantaneous. Indeed, it is better than before where you'd sit down once a month to make sure all your deposits and withdrawals lined up.

    "I’ve been using this app for several years now. I track many accounts within the app. It works well and is a simple interface. I had a problem with one account on the app and had to abandon it, since I was not comfortable sharing my private financial data with the developer. The only problem is that I want to sync data between my phone, my iPad, and my husband’s phone, but sync has not been available for quite sometime now - and the developer wants $4.99 per month to sync data. Time to get a new app? "
