Buddi is a free little app that helps you manage your finance with ease and requires little knowledge to run it. Everybody can use it, weather you want to manage your personal or small business finance, this program will exceed all expectations.

Creating an Account is pretty simple, click Edit and select Create Account, fill in some details such as Account name, type, and starting balance. Fill in some notes if any and click OK.
The account will immediately be created(see screenshot below). You can add as many accounts as you want.
