    I tried using Quicken for keeping a very basic digital copy of my check register, but I found Quicken's tendency of throwing all sorts of advanced options that I didn't want to use at me kind of unnerving.

    So, can anyone reccomend a check register-only finance app?

    I can't really offer a review, but I just downloaded a copy of "Checkbook" from Splasm software. I wanted something to keep track of my kid's allowance, expenses, savings, etc. because I'm getting tired of the paper ledgers. I got as far as setting up all the accounts and it appears that I can transfer money back and forth pretty easily. I think it will work great for my needs. It would probably work really well that was keeping track of a scout troop budget or something like that as well.

    You can try it for free and the registration fee is only $15.

    Check it out.

    I second the endorsement for Checkbook - I paid for the registration - it's a great little app as long as I use it :D..works really slick and has some user-definable categories etc.

    I'm hoping he had already found something in the 4 years since he posted the question ;)

    I just use a really simple spreadsheet I made myself in Excel (you can use OpenOffice Calc, too). Column for date, transaction, amount, running total, and a "memo" field. Works great for me. I'd post the template, but I'm at work and its at home. :(

    It's been quite some time from the OP's first post. since this has been resurrected, I switched from Quicken to iBank 2 years ago when I first became a Mac user. It has served me very well ever since.
