I've been using GnuCash on Fedora, Ubuntu and the portable version on Windows 7 and Xp and i've nothing bad to say. Importing from banks work great once you learn how to use it better. Works with Banco do Brasil OFX export feature.

Eu uso o GnuCash no Fedora, Ubuntu e uso a versão portátil no Windows 7 e XP e não tenho o que reclamar. Importar de Bancos funciona muito bem uma vez que você aprende como se faz. Dá para usar os arquivos OFX exportados no banco do Brasil.

I tried a lot of other similar apps. But only this one is at least enough for controlling my bank operations. But still, it's not perfect. And it's pretty hard to learn this program to the max level.

This app is very user friendly with some great features. I'm starting my own business and I love this app.

If you want to spend all day clicking the same things over and over again...

  • Interface is pretty clunky, especially on Windows.
  • Lots of tedious clicking and mousing required.
  • Claims that it's going to detect duplicates, but then doesn't.
  • Can't import more than one QIF file at a time. You have to manually type the account name and click 6 places for every single file, and the file order in the file chooser reverts each time so they're not in order.
  • Categories are called "accounts"?
  • 5 clicks to assign a category to a transaction. Every. Single. Transaction.
  • And if you try to type the category: "The account Dining does not exist. Would you like to create it?" NO I WANT YOU TO USE "Expenses:Dining", STUPID. I have to type in the whole thing each time? I should be able to type "din" and press enter because you understand what I mean and have highlighted "Expenses:Dining".
  • I can't assign a category to every transaction with a specific company? I have to manually edit every single one? I should be able to assign categories by search keyword or just by selecting a bunch of transactions and editing them all at once.
