With this program, you get a full double-entry accounting on the iPad and iPhone. As with our desktop programs, we use a simple and clear interface - without any graphic effects.
iHaBu can be used as standalone app. But in most cases, you will use it together with our desktop programs. You can enter data (Accounting, Cash book, Drivers logbook) on the mobile device and transfer the data to the desktop. On the other hand, you has all important reports on your mobile device.
You can download it direct from iTunes.
When you first start it, you will be been asked to enter a name for a client. Also, you can select an accounting plan. With this, the setup is complete. But in most cases, you will add or modify some value (e.g. accounts).
You can transfer the data from the desktop application either via WLAN or a file to iHaBu. The exact procedure is described in the documentation of the desktop application.
Before first use, you should setup the settings. Some entries can't be changed later without loss of data. The settings are separate for each client.
If you selected a client with a standard account plan, most data are created automatically. But it may be possible that you have to add or modify some entries. If you created the client with the synchronization from the desktop program, no changes are necessary.
You are able to create a new record (account, tax key, cost center...). After opening the dialog, you can enter the necessary data. On the iPad, you close the dialog with "Insert". If you tap outside the dialog, the entry will be cancelled. On iPhone, the input is divided into several pages for each value.
After selection a line, you are able to change a value. On iPad, a dialog like entering values opens. But not all values are changeable. On iPhone, an overview page is displayed, first. From this, you can change individual values like entering new values.
With the trash icon, you delete a selected entry. If this is already in use, it cannot be deleted. This is necessary to keep the data consistent.
After all master data has been defined, you can enter values. In all dialogs, you are able to change the client and period. Similar to the master data, you can edit the records, here. Afterwards, the details for each input type are described.
Depending on the report, you can enter values in the upper part. For example, accounts can be selected. After selecting these values, it may take some time until the results are displayed.
In the open items, you can open the dialog to balance. First, you select the account to balance. Afterwards, you have to select in both lists the entries, which belong together. If the difference is zero, you are able to tap "Balance". If "Balance several accounts" is active and there are no more entries to balance with this account, iHaBu will switch to the next account.
