I'm looking for some experienced feedback with double entry book keeping software that can be tuned for personal finances. I'm not sure if I'm a rare breed, but I like to know my worth at all times and my extensive research (and trials) have revealed that the double entry system is by far the best for keeping track of every financial detail.

However, I'm also aware that the primary use of this system is in small businesses and therefore most software built on the system is geared towards that end.

With that being said, does anyone have an experienced (as in used it extensively) suggestion for double entry book keeping software?

The one I'm looking at the most right now is Gnucash, but there are few qualms I have with it:

  • Out of date GUI. Not user friendly.
  • Does not readily support simultaneous editing (For when I want to work with my wife).
  • Bloated, takes way too long for tasks on what I would consider exceptional hardware. Not aimed at personal finance.

What I'm looking for:

  • Fresh GUI designed around showing what you really need with the option of digging further.
  • Preferably runs in the cloud in order to facilitate universal access and simultaneous editing.
  • Geared towards personal finance and not small business finance Still being maintained and not abandoned.
  • An integrated feature for budgeting (with reports)
  • Not sure if it's cloud, but double entry similar to gnucash but updated would be kmymomey Oct 9, 2014 at 14:18
