5.0 out of 5 stars The new way to manage your money! March 26, 2001
By T Paul
Format:CD-ROM
Moneydance, the newest kid on the block of the personal financial software world. Most people probably don't even know about it yet, but this product is the new way to manage your finances on your computer. Being an unsatisfied Quicken user I decided that it was time to look for something else. After some searching, and wading through a host of unsuitable programs, I came across Appgen Moneydance. The site said that I could download a beta version for free, so I tried it. I was able to import my accounts from Quicken into Moneydance without a problem, and learning the rest of the interface took me all of an hour. I found the interface to be crisp, clean, and very simple to navigate. Setting up an account was very simple, and as I began to use Moneydance, I discovered that it uses double entry accounting, thereby forcing the user to account for the deposits and withdrawals in both their originating and destination accounts. I really appreciated this feature, because it enabled me to track all of my income and expenditures.
The graphing and reporting capabilities of the software were better than I expected. Theses features allowed me to keep a really tight grip on all of my accounts, by showing me the activity in a detailed, broken down format.
The stock portfolio manager was just fine for me. I am not a heavy stock market player, and I found the tools provided to be more than adequate. The only tricky part I found was that I had to create a portfolio account before could enter securities, however, when I tried it, the same thing happened in Quicken.
The feature that struck me as being the most powerful is the ability of Moneydance to run on any platform.

4.0 out of 5 stars Huge improvement over Quicken. March 14, 2006
By busterv
Format:CD-ROM
I was pushed into Quicken when I escaped from the PC world into Mac land. I had used Money and liked it -- it was fairly simple to use and did everything I wanted it to do. The only downside is that it was from Microsoft, which is not my favorite company.

Quicken was awful. It crashed all the time, support was extremely slow (as it is only through IM), and I just didn't like the interface. I looked into three options: Liquid Ledger, iBank and Moneydance. After reading all I could I bought iBank and spent three days setting up my accounts and trying to figure it out.

iBank was a huge improvement over Quicken, but there was no tech support, I had troubles printing my accounts (unless I reduced the columns so that I could fit it only a page, but then I couldn't read what was in those columns!) and it just wasn't intuitive enough for me.

I am probably in the intermediate range of computer users, and I feel certain that someone with more experience than myself would find iBank just fine.

Since it wasn't doing what I wanted it to do (or rather, since I couldn't make it do what I wanted it to do) I decided to buy Moneydance and see if it was better. I think it is an oustanding program -- very easy to set up and use. I was able to set up all my accounts in a morning, where in iBank I was still working on the fundamentals at that point in time. In addition, I have been able to easily configure it how I want it to look.

I still have more to learn about Moneydance. The documentation is a bit less than I'd like, but they are working on more lengthy explanations which hopefully will be out shortly. Even with their overly short instructions I have found no roadblocks. I would give it five stars if there were more and better instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great multi-platform package June 15, 2001
Format:CD-ROM
I've been using this program for about a year and a half now on my Linux machine, and have been quite pleased with it the entire time. I use it to keep track of my budget and checking accounts, and it's a real breeze to use. I can't comment on the portfolio tracking features as I haven't used them much yet.
The author of the program is quite approachable, and I've written to him on a couple of occasions when I've wanted features that the program didn't have yet or had problems with my beta copies. He's often very responsive, and has been known to incorporate customer suggestions into the product within a day or two. It's a great human touch that you won't find from Intuit or Microsoft.
The program is written in Java, meaning that it will run on just about any platform. This can be a real lifesaver, because it means if you ever want to use another operating system, not only can your data files move with you, but so can the application. No need to buy one copy for Windows, one for Mac, one for... I've run it on Linux/x86, Linux/PPC, and MacOS without a glitch.
On the downside to using Java, the program will seem slow to some. For the record, I used to run it on a Pentium 75 machine and I wasn't complaining much. The later versions show some noticable speed improvements over previous ones. It's still more than fast enough to keep up with my typing, but don't expect it to feel as responsive as other "native" applications.
In short, I'm a long-time satisfied customer of Moneydance. Anyone looking for a solid personal finance package need look no further.
