I'm looking for a few days to find a special App or other

software to manage my home expenses .

 

I don't need a bank transactions .

I don't need to see the future .

I don't mind the app cost .

I don't want to fill every day my daily expanses / deposit.

All these are in Apps benefits .

 

I just want to "fill a few numbers as a income and a few as expenses" - then to see  a global picture .

 

So do you recommend a special  App or Apple's Number app ?

 

thanks

    Depends what you consider "a global picture."

     

    From your description, you appear to want more information back than you are willing to put in. What do you expect will a. generate the extra information, b. determine what extra information will be generated.

     

    IOW, how will this app read your mind to decide what you want?

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    I have some incomes and some expenses , I know the figures but if an item is changing ( in particular month )

    I want to insert the change to see how it will influence ?

    All the special App's can "show" me the future bet I don't count on a "computer mind "

     

    I can do the math by myself ...

     

    I don't have skills with Spreadsheets so I think the Apple "Numbers Budget template" will be suitable for me ...

     

    I didn't find any other solution other then "Numbers Budget template"

     

    I'll be more then happy to find a suitble solution ...

     

    Thanks

    The budget template includes two tables on which to enter income. One is for regular (as in stable) income that remains the same from month to month. The other is for one-time amounts and amounts that vary from month to month.

     

    The template provides a similar pair of tables for expenses.

     

    Remember that a Budget is a predictive tool that gives you a picture of your overall income and outflow over a period of time, based on your expected or planned earnings and expenses.

     

    If you want to track your actual income and expenses, then the Checking Register is probably a better tool.

    The Numbers current version is ( I think ) 3 years "old" ...

     

    Do you think that will come a new version or this issue doesn't matter ?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Friend,

     

    Try "Cash Journal". It is for free, and very useful.

    Anyone who knows Apple's plans in this regard will be bound by a non-disclosure agreement, so there's no reliable indication of when or if any piece of Apple software will have a new version. If the version available now will do the job you want it to do, then that will remain true whether there's a new version or not.

     

    If the possible expense is an issue, Cash Journal mayt be all you need.
