Cha-Ching Beta released
Three Mac developers have released Cha-Ching Beta, a new money management application that provides a simple overview of money coming in and out. Users can tag each transaction with keywords such as "bill," "food," "impulse buy," and more. The Universal software also tracks pending transactions such as IOU's, bills, and invoices. Apple iSight integration allows users to photograph items for insurance or tax purposes, and the application integrates with iCal as well as Address Book. Cha-Ching supports custom "Smart Drawers" to filter through the transaction library by title, keywords, amount, and more. Cha-Ching Beta is available for $15, though the price will rise to $25 when the application is officially released in non-beta form (system requirements were unavailable).
