I was looking for a way to keep track of my expenses and earnings and found the software Buddi to be sufficient for my needs. I'm using it mainly to analyze my online activities, the earnings of my websites and the expenses that I have monthly. Buddi has a nice way of displaying statistics that give a quick overview of what's coming in and what's going out which should be sufficient for most users.

Buddi requires a Java Virtual Machine which means it can be run on most operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Linux and Apple Macintosh. This is not a professional accounting software by any means but great for the quick overview and home use. Several plugins are available that add import and export functionality for instance.

Before I started using Buddi I used a simply Excel sheet to write down my earnings and expenses which soon got huge. Buddi is the next step adding statistics and a better display.

The budgeting software is really easy to use, which is one of the best things when it comes to these kind of applications. It should provide the necessary features for most users. It also gets updated regularly by its developers, which is another important aspect, as you can expect new features and other things being added regularly.

Buddi is a personal finance and budgeting program, aimed at those who have little or no financial background. In making this software, I have attempted to make things as simple as possible, while still retaining enough functions to satisfy most home users

The only downside for some users is that it requires the Java Runtime Environment, which some users may not want to install on their computer systems.

As far as features go, it supports a variety of finance related features. This includes creating accounts and budget categories (e.g. salary, car, groceries), recording transactions that are made, a budgeted net income and reporting.

    I use AceMoney, and I think it is better than all other Personal Finance managers – I’ve tried Grisbi and others I can’t remember now.
