Manage any account with a balance – checking, savings, debit cards, gift cards, even credit cards – and avoid costly bounced check fees or low balance surprises! Balance your checkbook with Checkbook Genius!

Get Checkbook Genius now at a special discount price. If you save JUST ONE $35 overdraft fee, Checkbook Genius will have PAID FOR ITSELF!

Checkbook Genius has been around since 2009 (on other platforms) and has helped thousands of users avoid overdraft fees not just by flagging accounts that are negative, but when they’re getting low. Low balances – you pick what’s “low” – are flagged in yellow, while zero or negative balances are flagged in red. And you can see all your accounts in one handy place!

An easy-to-use interface makes it a snap to enter checks, withdrawals, deposits, and more. A handy Remarks field gives you a place to enter check numbers, or confirmation/reference numbers if you pay bills online.

Handle transactions you create on a monthly basis with easy-to-use presets. Presets let you specify a payee and an amount, and you can edit a preset any time if changes are needed.

Reconciliation is also easy – Checkbook Genius can bring up a single screen where you can see a total of all your uncleared transactions. Then you tap another button to automatically create an adjusting entry in your checking account. If you need to clear a bunch of transactions as a batch, that’s easy, too – you can mark every transaction in your account with one action, or specify a cutoff date.

Here’s a list of some of the features in Checkbook Genius for iPhone:

HELPFUL MENU SCREENS. It's a little easier to use Checkbook Genius, now, thanks to menu screens. Now, you don't have to remember to press and hold anymore - when you tap a row in a list, you'll get a helpful screen of options.

PRESETS. Presets allow you to pre-define any payee and amount combination for regular use.

SCRATCH PAD. A handy place to jot down reminders, built right into the app.

SORTING. Sort accounts 6 different ways, and sort transactions 8 different ways.

TRANSFERS. Move funds directly between accounts.

RECONCILIATION. Checkbook Genius totals up all transactions not marked as cleared. The difference is automatically added or subtracted from your account.

CHANGEABLE LOW BALANCE INDICATOR. You can determine what is “low”. If your account’s balance drops below the figure you set, the account display appears in yellow.

PASSWORD PROTECTION. Don’t feel like pattern-locking your Android phone? Create your own custom password or passcode.

Stop giving money for bounced checks to your bank and know more about your money with Checkbook Genius!
