Simple Rental helps a User track income and expenses over a period of five years. The first year is the year when you first launch Simple Rental. Initially, you have one Account. You can add as many Accounts as you wish; each Account can track five years of income and expenses. You can try Simple Rental for ten launches before registration is required. Simple Rental is $10 shareware.
Although the name and example screenshots show how this app can be used to track rental properties, use your imagination to consider how this app can be used to track a wide range of topics.
When you launch Simple Rental you are presented with the Password Window. The first password accepted becomes the password for future sessions. Passwords must be eight to twelve characters. Case is not important. Do not forget this password or you will have no way to access the data. At this point you can read and print the Help information.
The password and all Simple Rental data are encoded before saving to protect privacy.
When you enter the password, you see the Simple Rental Control Window where you use radio buttons to bring up the Account Sheet, the Account's five Income Sheets and the Account's five Expense Sheets. Notice that the title of the Control Window includes the Account Number (Account 1 in this case).
Above you see the User has clicked on the Account button and the Account Sheet is displayed. The colored fields are Parameter Fields. Although the Parameter Fields have default text, the text can be edited. The white fields are Text Fields. Contents of Parameter and Text Fields are saved automatically when the Sheet is closed (true of all Sheets) and reloaded automatically when next opened. The bottom field can have any amount of text and a scrollbar is provided to scroll up and down. You can tab between Parameter Fields and between Text Fields (this is true for all Sheets).
Above you see the User closed the Account Window and clicked on the first Income Sheet button. The button is titled Inc. 12 meaning that the first year is 2012. If the first launch were in 2014, the first button would be titled Inc. 14. Notice that each Income (and Expense) Sheet has 24 blank Parameter Fields. Each Parameter Field has Text Fields for each Month. There is a Month Sum Text Field below each month; these Fields are updated automatically when data is entered. An Annual Sum Text Field is provided where the sum of Month Sum Text Fields is displayed and updated automatically.
Above you can see that the User has entered text into five of the 24 Parameter Fields and entered data in several Text Fields. Note that the Month Sum Fields display the sum of the Month Fields and the Annual Sum Field displays the sum of the Month Sum Fields.
Above you can see that the User closed the Inc. 12 Sheet , opened the Exp. 12 Sheet, and entered text into 23 of the 24 Parameter Fields.
If you would like to use the same Parameter Fields in a Sheet (Account, Income, or Expense) in another Sheet of the same type, you could type them again or use the Parameter Labels menu item in the menubar to do this. This capability can be used within and between Accounts.
If you wish to add an Account, click on Accounts in the Control Window menubar and select Manage Accounts. Above you see the User brought up that Window. To add an Account, simply click on the "Add New Account" button. The drop-down control to the right of "Select Account" lists all Accounts. Select the Active Account from the drop-down control.
At the bottom right of each Sheet is a Screenshot button. Press this button to make a screenshot of the current Sheet, save it to the Simple Rental Folder in User's Documents Folder and bring this jpg screenshot up to view or print. Above is an example jpg. Note that the file name includes Account and Sheet information.
Windows users should Auto-Hide the Taskbar. To do this, right-click on the Taskbar, select Properties and click "Auto-Hide the Taskbar".
