AndyBooks is a straightforward, easy to use accounts program, ideal for personal use or for clubs, small businesses or the self-employed. It has a no-frills approach, accounts are presented clearly & cleanly and entering information is kept simple and efficient.
Account are classified into categories, you define the ones you want and can have as many as you like. Categories can be restricted to income or expenditure entries only, reducing the possibility of data entry errors, and can be rearranged at will.
Entries can be displayed in date order, sorted into categories, or selected by category. Presets (templates) can be set up to make regular or repeating entries quick & easy to add.
Accounts can be imported from other AndyBooks files or from AndyInvoicer files. Entries can also be exported using copy & paste, in a format suitable for spreadsheets, word processors and databases.
Each AndyBooks file holds accounts for a single year. At the end of the year a follow-on file can be automatically generated with the same categories, presets & settings.
Files from the iPad version of AndyBooks can now be imported to the macOS app. Choose 'Export file' in the iPad app and open the created file with 'Import'.

It is worthless
Just the thing
After years of using an older version of a popular mass-market personal finance program, I was looking for a simple, Mac-oriented app to keep tax-time-worthy books for my one-person consulting business. I have been using AndyBooks since the start of the year, and I’m completely satisfied. I set up some basic US Schedule C expense categories and a few income categories, and entries have been quick and painless. I do wish the app had built-in capacity to password-protect its data files. Instead, I did a little research and learned how to create a password-protected disk image file, which holds my AndyBooks data file. When I want to enter expenses and income, I mount the .dmg file (which requires a password) and then open the data file inside the virtual disk. When I’m done, I have to remember to dismount the virtual disk. It’s an extra step, but not enough of a problem to deny the app five stars.
This application is terrific for our small non-profit organization. We've written less than a dozen checks so far this year and this gives us the flexibility to categorize, describe and reference expenses and income appropriate to what we do. Quickbooks is just too complex for our needs and too difficult to make changes. Our accountant thought we could get by with just a check register, but this gives us a bit more ability to provide details. It is also easier to send him a pdf of the record. Thank you, this is just perfect!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
