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 ?

    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?

    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.

    Hi Friend,


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

    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 ?


    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.
