TinyBooks 6.0.0 ships
Developer Ken Winograd says he has released v6.0.0 of TinyBooks, a Mac-based accounting and bookkeeping program aimed at families and small businesses. In using the software the program only asks for incomes and expenses, and calculates everything else based on how this data is categorized. The sixth edition introduces extra automation features, such as Auto-Comment option for commonly-used entry descriptions, and a similar option for checks. Multi-country tax support has been improved with automatic tax calculations.
Separately, Find commands have been added to monthly windows, invoices can now be customized as estimates, statements or proposals, and the Reports and Transaction search window should allow easy per-client reporting. TinyBooks costs $49, and normally requires Mac OS X, though it can operate on Mac OS 8.6 so long as CarbonLib 1.6 is installed.
