It has web version and desktop version for MAC and Windows. Support importing data from Quicken and csv. Can store your data in cloud or locally.

And the lack of API support like it’s PC counterpart is doubly disappointing. I’ll give iBank a go.

Been using it for the past 2 years and I’m finally dumping the slow piece of junk. I’m going to give You Need A Budget a try since I keep reading so many good things about it. It’s a different concept, but at least it’s a piece of Mac financial software that gets good reviews. Bye bye iBank. I won’t miss you!

I pay nearly every bill via credit card, which we pay off monthly. For the few billers that don’t accept credit card, I pay from my bank website. I had no problem converting my Q2007 files, I love the website downloading and reconciling is a breeze!

I do not need anything fancy to track my finances and maintain a budget. I am also a brand new Mac user. With that said, however, all the research I have done to find a reasonable personal finance program for the Mac has had me running in circles and very frustrated. Just when I think I’ve chosen iBank, I read another awful review. Just when I think that MoneyWell is the way to go, some other review site says don’t do it! I can’t believe the Mac world has yet to come up with something comprehensive for the everyday user. Has anything new come out in 2013 that I should know about before I make this frustrating decision?

If it were me, though, I’d give iBank a try. If you do, I’d love to hear what you think of it.

My investigation so far has left me confused as to what I should use. Ideally I would also like to be able to access the software from my iPhone and iPad. Would like thoughts of this forum as to recommendation for a new user that has no file to update / import. Thanks!

Sad, I was hoping this would be the one for replacing an aging Quicken for Mac. I just got a new mac, and would rather not install that old stuff (if it even works) on the new hardware. But I really want the mobility of iPad/iPhone apps. Curious Ben if you ever looked further or the import issue stopped you cold. Or are you still using the 4 apps in concert?
