eCheckRegister
Everyone gets that feeling, you log into your bank’s website and you ask yourself ‘where the hell did all my money go’. Even worst is when you realize you spent too much and you can’t pay the credit card bill. It’s a common problem in the world, especially when retailers, credit card companies and banks make it so easy to spend. It’s no surprise that personal bankruptcy has skyrocketed in recent years. You can try to advert unnecessary spending by keeping a detailed log of all your debits and credits like the shoebox method or using a finance program. Total Wireless Solutions, just like its name implies gives us another method, a Blackberry solution to keeping track of our spending in the form of eCheckRegister. Read what we have to say about it below …


Installation

eCheckRegister comes in at 40kb and has no trial version so the only way to install is through Desktop Manager.

Features

eCheckRegister is a Blackberry version of keeping receipts in a shoebox. The program is not meant to track spending by category, graph spending, help you with your budget, or predict future income. Total Wireless Solutions didn’t add unnecessary features into eCheckRegister, it understood that for the grunt work we rather do it on our computer through programs like Quicken or Microsoft Money. Basically the program tracks your transactions and balances, nothing fancy but it works.

Adding transactions is very simple, it prompts for which bank account, withdrawal or deposit, check number, to/from, amount, and memo. After adding a transaction you are brought to the ‘Manage Transactions’ menu where all your transactions are listed. Deposits and debits are distinguished by either a blue up error or a red down error to make things easier. One issue that we encountered is that when you start using the program on a regular basis there is no way to separate transactions by daily, weekly, or monthly view so the screen starts to get ‘busy’. So if you’re going to try to find the transaction for your December phone bill, you’re better off logging into your bank account instead of trying to find it through eCheckRegister. However you can separate your deposits and debits which helps a bit for looking up recent transactions.

    Dear BlackBerry Cool Review Team,

    Thanks for reviewing eCheckRegister.

    We would like to clarify on some of the issues raised:

    1. Trial Version : A trial version is available at Handango.

    2. OTA Install : The application has been included in the Handango InHand client for BlackBerry and both the commercial and trial versions can be downloaded using InHand.
    Also, we have our own OTA server and provide download urls when requested by customers.

    3. Filtering Transactions by date : We will try to implement a Filter by date feature in the next upgrade.
