- What's else?

book’n’keep is easy to understand even for people that are not so into bookkeeping. Creating payables and receivables is only a few clicks away. If you enter your customers and vendors in advance you don’t have to care about standard payment terms, tax id numbers (VAT) etc. You even can define standard sales tax or number ranges in the master files. Even more you can enter all the assets like computers or phones and book’n’keep will take care of depreciation or simply gives you an overview what’s yours.

You can attach up to ten documents for every single transaction or asset which means that you can simply attach a digital copy of your customer invoices or the incoming invoice from a vendor. So the document is directly attached and can be opened and resent every time you need to.

Reports and statistics will give you a feeling how your company is situated at a specific time or for a specific period. You even can export all your transactions to a file if you need a personalized view of your data.

On top of that you can work on all your Macs as book’n’keep is going to sync all your data via iCloud. It really has never been easier.

Ratings and Reviews

Straight ahead ,

Seems there’s no support for businesses just auto respond sad….

Initally I thought this was a decent software to get away from the monthy subscription based stuff, and on its face this is true. Unfortunately the support at this point is non-existent even for what would seem to be a simple thing. Personally I did a hard drive upgrade on my machine. Im not a huge fan of cloud based document storage so I had choosen to not use that aspect of this program.
As a result my company files ( identity and invoices) did not transfer over with migration assistant, although the app did. I asked a simple question via email support 12 days ago and the best they could do is immediately send me an auto responder email claiming I’d be helped in 5-9 business days. I guess they arent concerned for business owners, as I have had customers to bill. I will be forced to completely rebuild my company info. Also just so anyone reading this might say I should have used the cloud or made a backup. Ironically they do have a way to back up your data but no mechanism to import it. Very very Disappointing. If there was any kind of support being shown this might get 4 stars, but when you cant even reply to an email in weeks thats not even worth one star. Consider this before you spend your money.

Constantly Crashes

I read the previous posts about the app crashing, but figured the issue would be resolved by now….. nope. App crashes constantly I will update this review if the developer ever gets back to me and helps my situation. The App Store also refuses to give me a refund…. so buyer beware.

Nice UI - Constantly Crashes

I give this app high marks for its UI design. Easy to navigate and intuitive. Unfortunately the app is useless. It crashes after EVERY 3-5 transactions.
