Developer Ken Winograd has updated his accounting and bookkeeping application TinyBooks to version 2.0. This major revision offers a long list of new features, including new icons; added content in the Help window; on-the-fly calculations of monthly and year-to-date totals in the main monthly window; a new report type that can view, print or export all transactions for any time period; the option to mark expense and income items as recurring; and more.
Winograd developed TinyBooks with sole proprietors, small businesses and families in mind. It’s a simple single-entry application that’s capable of categorizing both deductible and non-deductible expenses and generating reports that show where money has been spent. It can also handle non-calendar fiscal years for companies that use them.
TinyBooks 2.0 requires Mac OS 8.6 through 9.2 or Mac OS X v.10.1 or higher. It’s a free upgrade for anyone who purchased an earlier version any time in 2004; those who bought it earlier can expect to pay US$19.60, or 60 percent off the $49 price of the full version. A site-wide license is $295. If you’d like to try it out first, you can download it from Winograd’s Web site and check it out for 14 days.
