User friendly and worth the price
on 1 December 2012
I have tried free and paid softwares both on Kindle Fire HD and on my laptop computer. If you want a basic app for entering transection only, there are quite a few out there which are not bad. However in the paid category, this is the best for ease of use and its extra features. I am not sure why Amazon is not offering a free trial, since I installed it as a free 30 day trial from 1mobile internet application store after enabling my Kindle fire HD to install 3rd party softwares. (you do that in the settings of kindle fire hd). I used it for few days and then decided to buy it. Try it folks. The flexibility of easymoney and ease of use is comparable to many big names at an affordable price. There is option to backup the data file automatically on the kindle itself but if you are resetting it to the factory default settings, all data will be lost. Although the data file is only read by this application but once I had my Kindle stopped working intermittently, I managed to get a quick backup file stored and copied to my computer. Once after resetting kindle to factory default settings, I downloaded the application again and copied the backup file manually from my computer to kindle and opened it in the application. Hurray I am back on track. It would have been nice if there should have been an option of backing up the data file automatically online. May be the developer can develop this in future versions. Various reports help you prepare your tax return for the whole year or for the period you like. I found it useful to track my charity contributions to claim on the tax return. Forecast of future months is great but once viewed they stay visible in those categories/accounts. The only nuisance I found was that if you need to change the amount in any recurring transactions and to reflect it in all future transactions, it has to start from the current month. Otherwise if you do it while viewing transactions in forecast, it records it as a new transaction and when their time comes, two transactions will be recorded. Once you know this and do it correctly then there is no problem I could find with this application. I would say it is the best and user friendly money management application I found in the paid category.
