(Oakville, Ontario, CANADA) - Lucerne Systems launches Horizon Version 1.2, the unique calendar-based personal financial management system, with a number of new features. In addition to the patent-pending calendar-based interface, Horizon 1.2 features a ground-breaking new Summary View that provides automatic calculations for the current month or part of that month. There is also a new Welcome Panel that can display an introductory video or load a sample calendar. Horizon has been designed exclusively for Mac OS X, and uses many features unique to OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
"Our new Summary View makes an easy-to-use program even easier.", says Iain Delaney, President of Lucerne Systems. "With it, you can see the numbers change at a glance, without any equations or functions."
Also new to Horizon 1.2 is a start-up "Welcome Panel" to help new users familiarize themselves with the program as quickly as possible. The Welcome panel can show an introductory video, open a sample calendar, open a existing calendar, or open a new calendar.
The menus and preferences have also been updated to make Horizon more customizable.
Horizon lets you organize your different incomes and expenses into categories, and then quickly set up repeating values in those categories. Horizon can repeat values daily, on weekdays, weekly, biweekly, and monthly.
Horizon uses familiar Mac UI elements, such as drag-and-drop to move or copy values, context sensitive menus, animation, help in the form of an Apple Help book, and a toolbar for commonly used functions.
Horizon stands as an alternative to check-book register-based systems and spreadsheets for people who want a simple, free-form way to budget and plan their finances.
Horizon is available for immediate download as a 30-day trial version, and a single-user license costs only $29.95 US.
