For my personal finances this was more than adequate. I didn't have to go through any lengthy documentation to learn this program. It's fairly intuitive. And it got the job done for my taxes last year. There were a couple of bugs (or "fleas") that made data entry slower than necessary. I wish the textbox fields would automatically highlight when tabbing from one field to the next so I don't have to delete the field contents before typing. The date field is too strict on having a two-digit month (US format).
I have been using jGnash for over 8 years. I find it perfect for my limited needs in tracking various small payments and issuing monthly PDF statements. It is reliable and simple to use, maintain and upgrade. Backup is done automatically at the end of every session. I only once had to restore following corruption (if I recall correctly it was years ago and due to a power outage) and it was quite easy to do. In summary, excellent package, thanks for producing and maintaining it.
Went to import QIF file, doesn't recognize qif files (wants to open other types), manually tried to open QIF file... failure.
Easy to understand and not overloaded. Flexible account management. All possible money operations covered. I work with jgnash over a year and I think it's the best free tool for home finance.
excellent programme. But When I try to use separate files for separate financial years i.e. in my country April to March, The budget exercise is fixed from January to December. It should be flexible to coincide with my financial year. And also I am unable to import reminders from previous file. Kindly give a solution
