I switched to ibank, now banktivity, a year & a half ago from Quicken. I've used that & MYM for decades..I had been looking to replace Quicken - every release shuffled features and added keystrokes with no additional benefit. ibank promised good things and got good reviews and I was moving to a Mac... seemed logical. I have had a lot of problems and while it is aesthetically pleasing, the design execution lacks consistency and accounting sense. They have things like a hard coded running balance that shows up as incoherent depending on your register sort - the balance is for date order only... changing the account on a transaction split asks if you want to orphan the record in the old account - every time - they told me that made sense. their 'smart' folders show transactions based on filters at the split level, but add the total of the transaction, not split - they told me that made sense...Search/selection criteria, specifically time period is different in every case where you use it, Registers, Reports, Smart Folders, etc. lacking obvious filters.And, the hangups! It eats CPU & RAM, not multi-threaded for updates, you wait every few minutes while it searches for new transactions. every few minutes.Now, they have taken away the free downloads completely. I had to change a card number due to fraud and the feature is not available that I was using These are free elsewhere - even to download separately and import.They also killed the Community Forum. Very Telling!
On a positive note, I love their embedded folder navigation & total design! (although they switched the paradigm half way down for navigating other items..
Be very wary - evaluate all alternatives first.

Not only is this the best looking financial software for the Mac, it's also one of the few with a counterpart iOS app (that can also run independently)
A great financial software! It offers much more functionalities than Quicken Essential for Mac.
