BUDDI

BUDDI, developed by Wyatt Olson, is software to manage personal
budgets. It is a programme which can be used even by people who have
little or no financial background. Buddi is easy to use, has useful
functions, for example the way it can display statistics to present a
quick overview, would satisfy most home users. Though not a
professional account software, Buddi is indeed great for the quick
overview it provides. Several plugins are available that can add
import and export functions. Buddi requires a Java Virtual Machine
which means it can be run on most operating systems including
Microsoft Windows, Linux and Apple Macintosh. If you have been using
an Excel sheet to record your earnings and expenses, Buddi is the next
step up.
