Corona, a Mac OS X application for managing a checking account dedicated to a cash-basis business, has been updated to version 1.5, providing general form entry and payroll accounting with its check register and account chart features.
The new version also sports numerous enhancements: dynamic popup selectors for choosing names and accounts, expandable views with adjustable font size, and online help. What’s more, Corona now works with all international date formats in the Date & Time control panel.
Corona files can be opened by any common spreadsheet software that imports tab-delimited data. Corona can also open exported information from spreadsheets and databases, a feature designed to make transaction data easy to share between software applications.
For record keeping, Corona facilitates transaction entry and bank reconcilement, it helps you find items in the transaction data, and quickly gleans monthly detail by account, according to author R. Charles Flickinger. Corona also provides monthly or total reports for income and trial balance. All of the application’s queries and reports can be printed or saved as files on disk.
Version 1.5 is a free upgrade to registered customers and will recognize the serial numbers issued with the 1.0 version. A 30-day demo version is available. Corona can be downloaded from the
product Web site. Corona-68K is also available for anyone using Mac OS 8.6 or earlier.
