Fathzer has developed Yapbam, an open-source, cross-platform and portable program. This free software is compatible with Windows 7 up to 10 and is available in English, French, Portuguese and German.
It’s a straightforward, personal bank account manager. You can use it to synchronise your information between multiple computers. It works with Dropbox, even if you don’t have it installed on your Windows PC. Advanced users can extend its functionality with plugins. Other syncing utilities include Resilio Sync and Sync Manager.
Yapbam allows you to import online statements or bank transactions from your previous account manager. You can use the entry wizard to input your transactions and let it generate periodical transactions, like taxes and salaries. It builds a balance history using your transaction data and warns you if you’re going into a negative balance.
You can view your data in the budget view or look at charts based on different expense categories. It also has a convenient currency converter connected to the official European Central Bank (ECB) rates.
