I've used MS Money (and even Quicken back in my per-Windows days). If Microsoft Money weren't FREE [now] then this would be my next best alternative. It's not as convenient and "natural/intuitive" keystrokes as the commercial alternatives (which should be something easy to fix...but it may also be that I'm used to the others. It IS MUCH more friendly than GnuCash (IMO). I've also tried Mint, and Mint can probably do much the same as HomeBank, but I find it a small and well written standalone product even with it's keystroke quirks.

After a short and pleasant learning curve, to me it feels just like Quicken, but it is free of charge. As soon as I get my finances in order with this application, I will make a donation to the developers.

  • You can only import one .qif file at a time, jumping through hoops doing the same exact 14 clicks of assigning an account and everything for every single one.
  • You can only edit one transaction at a time. Each time you assign a category to a transaction takes 5 clicks.
  • Automatic assignment can't be applied to existing transactions because it only works if the Payee is already empty??
  • Automatic assignment searches only the description field, when the important information is in the Payee field. So you have to categorize everything manually, which means millions of clicks and wasted time.
  • If you edit a Payee with branch location or something, that information is lost, it doesn't store it anywhere else.
  • Is there a way to say "everything to this payee is in category X"? All I see is editing the Payee name.
  • No undo??
  • Default categories include a lot of duplicates, like "Phone/Wireless" and "Bills -> Telephone" or "Mortgage/Rent" and "Bills -> Rent".

After my 40 years experience using numerous ICT systems, I prefer applications that only allow me to import one file at a time.

Seems alright for very simple use but does not have any tools to handle investment accounts.

"A HTTPS version of homebank.free.fr is not available" — I consider unacceptable the absence of a secure connection certificate on a site that is directly related to my finances.

I need to access the homebank database from Debian, Windows, and MacOS machines, which this app allows.. the problem is, if you open it from a newer version, then it is no longer accessible from any lower version. That's a problem, since the versions are not consistent across OS specific releases.

Jeppsons8, a few years back, I installed Mike Kronenberg's Wine:

https://winebottler.kronenberg.org

I am running version 2.0 -- which apparently was pulled, for some reason -- but version 1.8.6 is good enough.

Simply download Wine 1.8.6, install it, then download HomeBank, and double-click the Installer. You might have to select Wine the first time and answer the "Use This Program for All .exe Files?" question.

If you get any questions about running X11, dismiss/close the window and try Control-clicking the HomeBank.exe file, select Open With, and point it to Wine.

Oh, and even better, no need for MacPorts with this one.

Good luck!

(Update -- Two Hours Later)

File navigation is ... difficult in this one (HomeBank). You might want to create an alias to the Windows Documents folder on your Mac's desktop, and just save everything there.
