Re: Syncable finance app?
Thank you, Doug and rb, for two different approaches to my problem. I'm
not, however, looking to roll my own solution if I can avoid it. Since
there are plenty of sync-friendly apps for Palm's Address Book, Date
Book, and Memo Pad, it seemed that there'd be a similar Palm finance app
that could sync to a larger Linux app.
I really dislike relying on the bank to keep track of what I spend.
What happens if I write a check that doesn't get cashed for a week or
two? Or if a debit/credit card transaction takes a few days to process
(as happens from time to time)? The bank does a very good job of
keeping track, but for certain things, a manual checkbook register is
better. Besides, there's the whole issue of trust. I trust the bank to
get things right, but not so much that I won't check their math myself!
Relying solely on online banking neglects my own responsibility to keep
track of what I spend.
I'm going to see if anyone else on the list has ideas, then start to
think about writing something myself.
