Manage your finances, add multiple reminders, create budgets based on your history and generate reports with this handy Java-built application
jGnash is a software program developed specifically to help people in managing their finances more efficiently, adding reminders and seeing where their money went through reports.
The perks of a portable app
The installation process is not a prerequisite, as this product is portable. Consequently, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be affected in any way, and no remnants are going to be left behind after you discard it from the disk.
Another noteworthy aspect is that you can easily copy the program files to a removable storage unit (e.g. pen drive) and thus, run it on any computer you come in contact with.
Add accounts and reminders, and generate reports
This utility enables you to easily add multiple accounts along with information such as name, description, ID, currency, type (e.g. expense, investment, liability, mutual fund, etc.) and notes (if any). In addition to that, it is possible to insert charges, incomes, transfers, withdrawals and adjustments, and view the total balance.
Reminders can be set up, so that you do not forget to pay your mortgage anymore or certain bills, while you can also add custom monthly budgets or they can be based on your past expenditures. Several types of reports can be generated, such as monthly balances, net worth, profit and loss, income/expense pie charts and end-of-month balance.
Import and export capabilities
Transactions can be printed as checks, your data can be created in a custom location using an XML or binary file, or HyperSQL and H2 relational databases. Import is possible using an OFX, MT940 or QIF format, while export is available using an XML extension.
Performance and conclusion
CPU and memory usage is insignificant which means that the system’s performance is not going to be burdened. The interface is intuitive, the response time is quite good and our tests did not reveal any problems, such as errors, hangs or bugs.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used jGnash and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
