Still tinkering with iPod

July 6th, 2009 at 08:39 am

This entry is probably going to sound like gibberish, but this is the issue-of-the-moment that's confounding me right now....

Anyways, you'd think that I would have my personal financing software nailed down by now, but wow, no, I guess not.

I don't want to bore you guys with a laundry list of gripes, but suffice to say, Pocketmoney's budget view turned out to be wonky looking, Spend doesn't do transaction tracking (not really), Checkbook's transfers doesn't work quite right, and I still have Splashmoney, which is what I had weird glitches in the first place.

I'm not asking for much, but what I do ask for is admittedly very exacting! But it has to be because it's also how I track my entire personal finances so....

Basically, I'm down to two options. Either I hack my own budget into Pocketmoney (by turning some accounts into budget line items), or I split certain budget items into certain accounts. I've decided to do both and let time tell me what ends up working better....

    I tried pocketmoney Lite and did not like it at all. I am back to using my google spreadsheet.

    Bah, I had Pocketmoney for the Palm, and that literally worked for years. It's times like this that I wish I didn't "upgrade" so soon....

    But I think it's a matter of time before I find a method that will work.

    Truth is, the hacked budget on PocketMoney (for the iPod) is working pretty good so far....

    I tried www.pearbudget.com as suggested by someone here on the site, but did'nt like amount of columns it had and the way they let you customize it wasn't helpful enough.
