Happy New Year! I’m very excited to announce the beta release of Buckets v0.73.0 which includes two major features:
Buckets is one step closer to working seamlessly on mobile!
Buckets is a good budgeting app, but it’s not the only app. There are probably hundreds of apps for managing your money. I don’t like to pick on other apps, because honestly, if it works for you that’s great! I’m happy when people are financially successful.
However, Buckets is unique in a few ways that I’d like to highlight. And most of these have very little to do with budgeting.
We’re excited to announce the release of Buckets v0.72! Get your copy of the Beta version here!
This release includes a lot of internal changes (updating of software libraries and tools) that were needed to finally support Apple Silicon machines. In addition, Buckets is now also built for Linux ARM64 machines.
AND, there’s a new report under Analysis! It’s a simple Income and Expense report which you can print if you like keeping paper or PDF records of your finances.
As mentioned in March’s blog post, we’re raising the price of a Buckets License to $64 in September. See that post for the full details. The change won’t happen on the 1st of the month—possibly closer to the 10th.
I’ve always been more inclined to save money than spend it. As a kid, I would buy things here and there and occasionally splurge on something I really wanted (I still remember shelling out for Space Quest 5), but most of my money went to the bank.
Good budgeting meant saving everything. At least in my mind.
If you think like I did, that budgeting means never spending money, this post is for you. If you’re a spendthrift, skip this one :)
We’re planning to raise the price of a Buckets v1 License to $64 in September. Hopefully this is enough notice that you can save up to purchase at the current price before then if you’re contemplating getting a license.
Update: Android is now in open beta. We’ve adjusted the links below.
I wanted to quickly announce that Buckets for Android is now up on Google Play in a beta! If you’d like to be added, sign up here.
This past spring we started paying our kids to do jobs around the house. People have all sorts of ideas about allowances, chores, and what we as parents should or shouldn’t deal out the dough for. This post isn’t about that. This post is about money.
It’s hard to learn about something you don’t actually get to touch. And we want to teach them things about money. So we decided it was time to help them touch money more and hopefully learn some things about it while they’re kids.
