Keep your finance history! I've used excel. But at the moment I use this app, Gnucash
I have been using Quicken for 20 years, but I have always been dissatisfied. Quicken is limited, and they never seem to make progress quickly enough. It seems like they are always working against the user. So I have been following Gnucash for many years, waiting for a time when it might be an acceptable alternative. Unfortunately, Gnucash is not even close to being mature software yet. The documentation is excellent. Very rare to see excellent documentation in a free-software project. However, the software itself (under Windows 8) does not work at all. The stable version 2.4.13 will not even open. I am sitting and looking at the start-up screen now on my computer, which has frozen at the splash screen. Version 2.5.5 (unstable) lives up to its name. Although it gets past the splash screen, it crashes when attempting to save a transaction into PostgreSQL. So, I will continue to monitor this project. Maybe in another 10 years...
I am trying to move away from the popular commercial product due to the bugs and costly upgrades due to planned obsolescence. It is very different from the program that was I using. It will take me a while to learn how to use Gnucash but eventually I'll get it (I hope). Thank you developers .
From the version 2.6.4 (including 2.6.5) doesn't show reports at all. Just a blank tab! :(
