Maybe something like using Google Docs?

@lichme: Google Docs would be the perfect solution if it limited it's capabilities to just a ledger. I do use Google Docs to create Excel and Word documents from my tablets but don't want to have the ledger in that format.

The current ledger that I use allows me to hide cleared transactions, have multiple bank accounts, and calculates my net worth. Google Docs spreadsheet could do all that but not as user friendly.


Have you tried mint? ( I'm not a fan, but I use iBank for my iOS devices.


@okham: I just checked that out for the first time since I never heard of that service.

Mint automatically pulls all your financial information into one place, so you can finally get the entire picture.

I want to put transactions in myself and then reconcile it when I get my bank statement. Relying on things like Mint could potentially cause you to go below your balance.

Imagine you write a $1,000 check to someone and they hold onto the check for 3 months. Mint will show that you have funds available but in reality that check is still outstanding. I would like to be able to add that transaction manually so I know that money is already spoken for.
