Money management made simple

Are you tired of personal finance apps like Quicken that are overloaded with features you don't need? GreenBooks isn't like that. It is powerful enough to do all the money management tasks you need, but with none of the complexity you don't.

Stay Organized

As a financial tracker, GreenBooks lets you easily keep track of all your accounts without hassle or distraction. We made everyday tasks like entering transactions super fast, so doing it everyday is not a chore. It's simply the most pleasant user interface for keeping track of your accounts.

See Breakdown

With one click, see where your money is going. In GreenBooks, you can see a breakdown of your expenses and incomes by categories. You can easily toggle between different periods, and drill into a category to see more detailed breakdowns.

Effective Budgeting

GreenBooks lets you create a budget that accounts for all of your spending and income categories, so you know how much you are saving at the end of a budget period. You can even create parallel budgets, one for the year and one for the current month, to have both a long- and short-term view.

Direct Connect

Direct Connect lets you connect your accounts directly to your bank accounts, so new transactions stream in automatically and are automatically reconciled with your pending transactions.

Direct Connect is an extra service that does require a subscription of $2.99/month.

GreenBooks for iPhone

Just like GreenBooks for Mac, GreenBooks for iPhone is a simple yet powerful personal finance manager. You can use it standalone, or as a companion to the Mac app. Secure iCloud sync keeps data current on all your devices.

I still remember what initially drew me to GreenBooks. Simple, elegant and informative. The features it has have purpose and represent the core you need. The UI is intuitive and attractive. And the reporting is what really stands out to me. So many apps have tons of reports and graphs, but I don’t feel like I need the info. In GreenBooks, what I want is easy to glean. The breakdown view shows me exactly what I earned and spent and what the net is. My most important metric. Trends also have a similar feel. Simple and informative. GreenBooks is for people who want a lean, focused, attractive and effective way to stay on top of their money. :)

I didn’t realize I have been using GreenBooks for 10 years! GreenBooks is a very stable part of keeping track of my small amount of money. It gives me control and makes me feel safe. I can budget well and always know exactly where I stand on my finances. Consequently, I live a very comfortable life as a retired person on Social Security and that’s saying something!

Switched from YNAB in 2022

I have been a YNAB user for years but became disenchanted by the increasing costs. Looking around for a replacement I was excited to find GreenBooks. It fits my needs perfectly and has a similar functionality to YNAB, with which I was familiar. In some ways, Greenbooks is easier to use - entering or importing data is a snap, Direct Connect to your bank works well (not always the case with YNAB), and there are useful export options.
