Where did the money go? Who’s watching the expenses? Is there an app for that?
Well, yes, dear Mac user. Beyond Quicken and the dozen or two or three Quicken-wannabe apps that take your money just so you can track your money, there’s Next— one of the lower priced money tracker apps for the Mac.
Tracking your money shouldn’t be an exercise in futility, even if there are extra days in the month at the end of this month’s money. Next tracks you money by the day so you’ll always know where it went and went it went there.
Think of it as Calendar for your cash.
Next has a simple interface which takes each expense and applies it to the day you spent the money. That means you can see which days have the most expenses are what they are. Expenses can be categorized, too, and you can view daily, monthly or multiple months at the same time.
Next tracks your expenses. That means it’s not a bill paying system. It won’t track your stocks. You won’t be able to review your various credit card and bank accounts.
What you see is a list of what you spent and when.
Next also saves data in iCloud so you can sync it up with Next for iPhone and iPad. You won’t spend much money on Next for Mac (and less for iPhone) which means the expense of tracking your expenses just went down.
