Customer Reviews

What I needed. Good and basic.

I’ve tried a few, some costly, and this is the best next thing to a paper check register as far as simplicity goes. Only wish it had a few more features like choosing the dollar amount format i.e. $$.$$. Dollars and cents auto-formatted so you could just type in figures and numbers and the program would automatically place the decimal point as dollars and cents. Like Excel can do with customizing how one wants to treat number entries.
Also in the “check number” column, allow text to be entered, not only numbers. Sometimes under the check number on a paper register I write “xfer” for account transfers, and “DB" or “V” for bank debit card purchases where the check number is N/A.
Other than that, I like the program.

A simple program that works as intended.

Waited till a reconciliation to rate this software. Simple enough. I’ll continue to use as it’s all you need to record household checking. One issue I encountered was, after about the third time to use I noticed that the information I had entered disappeared. Apparently auto save did not work this time. Had previously. Solution is to just select save prior to closing and no issues now. Working on iMac with OS X Sierra.


I use Chekchek daily. I have for several years. It’s fabulous. Ingenious. I looked at several other programs, and none was as simple and straightforward at this one. The others had lots of whistles and bells, which merely got in the way. Whoever designed Chekchek was brilliant and knew what 95% of us need Well done!
