Ratings and Reviews
Works well, great design, but text lacks adjustment
Good experience with Savings 3 usability, never any errors with information or transactions. The app contains just the right amount of features. I like the trends display a lot. I personally have not used the bank connection. Execellent visual layout -- not your eye-bending spreadsheet grid. The gray text notes line looks great.
Unfortunately, the text cannot be changed in any way. I personally have a hard time seeing the brighter green text and the red is so-so. Font size cannot be changed. Also, the transaction selection is unnecessarily harsh: black-to-white text color reversal with cobalt blue in whole box. Much subtler methods exist. For example, the app highlights each account with a simple gray band -- perfect.
For me, the text color is a deal-breaker and I had to move to another app that gives you great choice on text, but is much less elegant overall. I'd be right back with Savings if text color, size and highlighting could be adjusted.
Four stars for great design, just missing user adjustment on visuals.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, these are good feedback regarding color and design. We will look into fixing it in a future update. Thanks!
I’ve tried just about every money management app in the Apple Store and found most of them seriously lacking or simply overly complicated. I ended up using Accounts 2 for several years, but needed something that would work on a Mac as well as my phone and tablets. That’s when I discovered Greenbooks.
Greenbooks is simple to use and has a good balance of features. It’s biggest plus is it works on Mac, tablet, and phone, so I can manage my accounts from any of my Apple devices.
However, there are two things in Greenbooks that keep it from being perfect. First, the decimals have to be entered manually when they should be automatic. Second, there should be a way to exclude select transitions from the trends and breakdown reports as can be done in Accounts 2.
I've been using this since 2013, and am happy with it. It took me several years before I started using the Scheduled transactions, and it has simplified my tracking of bills greatly.
The app has never used check numbers well, reflecting that checks are, evidently, going out of fashion, but I still use them for many of my payments directly from my bank account.
The reconciliations save me enormous amounts of time, even though they have not always been accurate in matching outstanding and the equivalent "new" transactions. But it's fairly straightforward to find the error when it occurs.
The program is gracefully straightforward, not requiring knowledge of double-entry bookkeeping.
