Budget Calendar is a unique budgeting program that is displayed in a calendar format as opposed to a simple ledger. The newest version includes added support for Java 1.7 for Mac users, and several bugs were fixed for user ease, including quicker note saving, better payment accounting and functionality of categorization when processing payments.

Each calendar day has its own cell. Within a cell, each transaction listing includes an optional image, a description and the amount of the transaction. For example, if you pay rent on the first of each month, your calendar will show, “Rent -$1,500.” Hovering your mouse over the bar provides daily income and expenses. The calendar is not set in stone either; you can move a transaction to different days if need be. There are two ways to add a payment. You can right-click on a cell heading and click on “Add a new payment,” or you can right-click in the List of All Payments window and click on “Add a new payment.” You can provide numerous pieces of information for each transaction, including starting and ending date, grace period, frequency of payment and category. You can also create a payment based on an existing transaction by right-clicking a saved transaction and selecting “Duplicate payment.” If your bills are due on specific days, it’s easy to set up an automatic deduction each month from your budget as well. The remaining budget is displayed on the bottom of each calendar day. On top of the calendar there is a forecast of your average balance and a brief summary of each transaction, which is presented as a percent of your total balance.
