Cha-Ching seems to be exactly the money management software package I’ve been seeking. After playing around with it, I’ve some observations:

  1. It actually looks like an OS X application and doesn’t require installing X11 unlike so many alternatives I’ve seen.
  2. It is tag-based (instead of category-based), has a very responsive and easy-to-understand interface, and is fun (!) to use.
  3. It lacks some basic features (splitting transactions, for one) and is really buggy.
  4. The development team has no published road-map and seems to lack any real experience being an ISV. This is not the app to which to trust your money.
  5. $40? Seriously?

Ugh. Maybe in a year it’ll be viable…
