    Started charging for some premium features in the new version.

    Since launching the new version on december 22nd, I've made about $1,300.

    Hopefully I can keep this up :x:

    Yeah. Unfortunately I have a 3 1/2 year old powerbook that still uses the PowerPC chip... so i can't use the developer tools to make one.

    I'm hoping they release a new Mac Mini at macworld next week and i can pick one of those up for under $500 and use it to develop with.

    Or maybe i should just bite it and get a new macbook pro :noes:

    just get a macbook pro. you can always hook that up to a monitor...

    look at it as a reinvestment into your business

    iphone app could lead to increased adoption rate down the road

    congrats man, I remember when you first put it up. it would be interesting to hear about how the site has grown, what challenges youve faced, etc.

    btw, I'd make the screenshots on the homepage clickable

    Good, it's about time. You've certainly put a ton of work into it building it into something good longer term, instead of just being in it for quick money.

    Great product you've got there, hope it continues to earn you some profit. Can I ask what promotion you did when you first got it up and running?

    It's still free. There are just premium features to pay for.

    Every single piece of data must be manually entered with ClearCheckbook.

    Buy some gas? Gotta enter it. Pay a bill? Enter it.
