I think I may have gotten into the 'personal financial application' scene going backwards. I started out with iBank (3.0.2) after reading so many posts about 'Quicken Mac sucks....', and after hearing such high praise for iBank (like their accolades from MacWorld,... oh, and their ads where they state something along the lines of 'You finally have a place to go from Quicken!'
My experience with iBank 3.0.2, and subsequently 3.0.3 (which 1/2 way fixed a bug in 3.0.2 which only helped to reveal another bug in 3.0.3)... okay, you see where I'm going.
At $60 for buggy eye candy, I'd rather try $70 for ugly yet financially and numerically accurate (... Quicken).
Don't throw tomatoes yet, but I just don't get the high levels of gripes about Quicken. It's clumsy at times, with it's myriad of panels to deal with.. and I've even had small annoyances where importing data wasn't as smooth as expected. Trust me, that's par for the course on just about EVERY financial mac app out there. After iBank I tried Moneydance, cha-ching, and liquid ledger. In my experience, Quicken is the smartest way to go. With that, I'm looking forward to this Q-my financial life setup. I'll run it as a test along side Q.2007 to make sure any of its 'missing' features aren't ones that I would use anyways. But I think eventually, those missing elements will be available.
If you try iBank, tell me if this doesn't happen: After the 'beautiful-ness' of the interface appearance wears off for you, you start to take stock in 'annoyances'. Quicken has them too, but in Quicken, you say... that's annoying, but I can deal with it. In iBank, you'll say... "that feature doesn't work AT ALL!" There's a difference friends.
One vote of confidence for IGG Software, makers of iBank... they honored their 30-day money back guarantee. So if you MUST try them, you can do it without feeling like you've seriously laid $60 on the line.
Looking forward to this new Quicken on the Mac,
