CheckPad is a simple iOS digital version of a check book. Transactions are presented on the screen the same way they are in a check book register. This is not an online bill payment application and therefore doesn’t have access to any bank data. It replaces most of the paper in your drawers and on your desks. With this app you can keep track of how your money is spent by entering transactions like you normally do in your checkbook. CheckPad offers the following advantages:
- help save the trees (even though some users successfully requested printing)
- clean transaction register entries without messy corrections
- automatic transaction dates (today according to your device settings )
- familiar layout
- so simple to use an 8 year old (who keeps a check book) can use it without help
- offers password protection to prevent unauthorized access
- a small memory foot print and fast
- doesn’t require a network access to use it (if no backups to iCloud required)
- can also be used in a small business to keep track of sales
- simple graphics to get an overview of your cash flow (pie charts and histograms)
- new features added to support sales events (Farmers'Market, Yard Sale etc)
Upgraded to run on macOS via Mac Catalyst. macOS Catalina (version 10.15) is required to run the macOS version. Some UI changes to improve visibility in Dark Mode in iOS 13, because some default panes lost their contrast in Light Mode.

Bugs and no support
This app appears to be simple as stated however, it bricked my Ipad when i installed it and i could not do anything for 10 minutes, could not even shut the ipad off. Needles to say i was not a happy camper. Somehow it righted itself. Now i am trying to delete an account and the manual states to scrub like any other app which i think means swipe and hit the red delete......well it simply does not work. So i thought i would contact the developer. Well i cannot find on their website or in the app itself any way of making contact to get any product support. Please correct these issues and then perhaps i can give a higher rating.
Just what I was looking for!
I tried 8 different checkbook apps before I got to this one... I wanted a simple check register and this is EXACTLY that! No extra categories to mess with, no extremely long forms or submenus to fill out... The view shows exactly what I need and I do love that it mirrors an actual checkbook with no extra fuss. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I would like my favorites to show up in alphabetical order and I don't like that when you click on new/add transaction icon it sometimes prefills with the last transaction you just entered... I currently just type over it but prefilling for me could accidentally cause errors if I forget to type over a field... I think this prefilling might be a bug??? Not sure, but for the most part it is perfect and since it is new I hope they keep it simple!
I bought this app to keep track of my monthly juniors fees paid to me. It seems like a great app but there is one major issue....
When I add a credit to the account it does not give me a total. After entering over $1200 of fees it shows $0 balance? What am I missing? Also the app does not have a way to get help other than the manual. It will meet all my needs if I can figure this out. Hence the 1 star. Will give it 4-5 stars.
I will admit when I am wrong. I was frustrated because it would not show me the total. If I was patient and closed file, the next time I opened it it had a total. 5 stars
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
