"On the whole, however, HomeBank is a very capable personal finance manager for the struggling household. You’ll be amazed at how much money you’ll save just by knowing how much you’ve spent – and in these hard times, that’s priceless." —Nick Peers, (19 Jun 2015)
"It is not bogged down in the double-entry accounting procedures that GNUCash uses. Thus, HomeBank's learning curve is much less steep." —Jack M. Germain, (Apr 27, 2011 5:00 AM PT)
"Runtime error occurred, wiping out my entries" —rrtopaz, (December 26, 2011)

Portability Notes

  • HomeBank is built with GTK+ that sometime writes to Windows data folders while running. Most of the time it's not, so it could be said Homebank is 100% portable.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
