Easy Books 4.0 – Double-entry accounting application for Mac (Free) / What's New in Easy Books 4.0 for Mac OS X Yosemite?

App for Mac writes: Easy Books is a fully functional double-entry accounting application for the Mac. The app is developed by Geode Software and is available as a free download. It comes with space for 120 entries (transactions) and some example companies for you to try it out. You can upgrade with a one-off purchase within the app, and you decide what features you want, so you only pay for what you need.

Easy Books is ideally suited to small businesses and 'one-man bands'. We have had lots of feedback from people who love the iOS version of this app; builders, contractors, consultants, musicians, farmers, treasurers, and, of course, bookkeepers. Together they have sent suggestions (via the feedback form) which have improved the app over time.

Note: Features of Easy Books are sold as separate, in-app purchases. See here for details.

Version 4.0:

  • New design for OS X Yosemite.
  • Switch between screens more quickly using the keyboard shortcuts shown in the new View menu.
  • Use the new "Hide Sidebar" feature to make more space available for your content.
  • Make the text bigger to make it more comfortable to read. Or smaller for those with high visual acuity!
  • Control-click a line in the P&L or Balance Sheet report and choose "View Transactions" to find out what went into making that figure.
  • Sort transactions by clicking on the column heading.
  • Export all transactions shown in CSV format using the new Share menu.
  • Navigate quickly between statements using the new navigation buttons. Statements are now grouped by financial period too.
  • Customer statements now show the payment text unless the "Received with Thanks" custom label is filled in.
  • Navigate between financial periods in reports using the new navigation buttons in the toolbar.
  • Inactive (old) products are no longer shown in lists, making it easier to find the product you want when you're entering a sale.
  • Add nearby devices to your Online Sync account quickly using the Online Syncing screen.
  • Transactions by Account totals include tax amounts where appropriate.
  • Added a new "Transactions by Category" report.
