Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2008 5:23 AM (in response to everkleer)Hi, moneydance is a product that can be used on windows, Linux and mac, and if you look at the forums, the developers at moneydance are working on an ipod / iphone version that will use the .mac (now .me) function to actually synchronise data.
I haven't bought the product yet, as I'm struggling to import 8 years worth of MS money files accurately, so it doesn't work for me just yet.
I've been looking for the products you describe for three months now, and moneydance is the closest I can find.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 32GB iPod Touch (2.1)

I downloaded the demo of Moneydance and I haven't done much with it yet but I see that the two things that I didn't like about Splashmoney both work like I want in Moneydance.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 7, 2008 3:47 PM (in response to everkleer)I've been using MoneyDance for about a year and like it. I've also seen the post about them working on an app for the iPhone, but there hasn't been a peep since. Out of curiosity, I've been trying out iBank for the past week. I can confirm that the current method iBank uses through the web and Me.com com synching is nice, but does not allow updates when you are not connected to the internet. However, on their blog, they say they are also working on an app that would presumably allow this.
Between the two, iBank is visually more appealing, but so far seems a little more difficult to use (but still good). I'm not yet sure if the difficulty is real or just me adjusting. I'm mainly poking around because the one thing MoneyDance does not do well for me is forecasting to my next paycheck considering future amounts in my register + amounts in my reminders. So, I have to pre-enter all of my upcoming bills to get to the balance of cash I have left to spend. iBank seems to do the forecasting better. But there are always trade offs.iMac 2.4 Ghz Intel; MacBook 2.0 Ghz Intel; Apple TV; iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
