Moneydance is a complete personal financial management application that includes features such as online banking, online bill payment, investment management, budget tracking, scheduled transactions, check printing, detailed graphs, reports and much more.

This is an overview of your finances. The information shown includes account balances, upcoming and overdue transactions and reminders, and exchange rate information. Clicking on an account or choosing an account from the drop-down account list will take you to the register for that account, where you can enter transactions or reconcile the account against a statement. Clicking on a transaction reminder will display a window where you can automatically record the transaction.

Moneydance can automatically download transactions and send payments online from hundreds of financial institutions. It learns how to categorize and clean up downloaded transactions. Send online payments, for banks that support them, directly from scheduled transaction notifications. View the full list of supported direct-download banks at Please note that some banks charge a monthly fee for download and bill payment services.

The account register is used to enter, edit, and delete transactions in an account. It is visually similar to a paper checkbook register, but the calculation of balances and sorting of transactions is all done automatically. The payee auto-complete feature makes it easier to enter and categorize your transactions.

Follow your investments and bring your portfolio into focus with support for stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, and more. View the total value of your investment accounts or the performance of individual stocks and mutual funds over time. Stock splits and cost basis computations are a snap, and current prices can be downloaded automatically.

You can set up a payment schedule for single or recurring transactions so you'll never miss a payment.

Use the graphing tool to generate visual reports of your income and expenses. Set the graph type, the date range, and any specific settings for the type of graph you desire. Pop-up balloons display more information about the data being graphed as you move the mouse pointer over different regions of the screen. Graphs can also be printed or saved to PNG image files.

Set spending targets for categories per month, week or any other interval. View your up-to-the-minute budget status right in the toolbar, on the home page or in detailed graphs and reports. Use the highly acclaimed "envelope method" to specify expenses for each period and your to-the-minute status is shown with over-budget items highlighted. Moneydance will help you set a target and stick to it!

Enable file syncing to share or collaborate on a data file across multiple computers. Whether sharing with your partner or accountant, syncing your data will provide secure efficient access to your accounts from any computer.

Start typing a transaction description into the search field and Moneydance will intelligently fill in the details based on natural language date parsing and your history. For example, typing "1.23 sta" will display a transaction entry panel with the name Starbucks, category "Coffee", today’s date under the last account to have a transaction for Starbucks. The description, category and account are filled in based on your history.

Attach images, PDFs, and other such files to transactions by dragging the file into the register. Clicking an attachment thumbnail will open it in an appropriate application.

When you're on the go, you can use the Moneydance mobile app to enter or edit transactions and view balances. Changes are synced instantly and securely with your desktop. Available for free in the app store for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Great Financial Management App


Overall this app is outstanding, but I give 4 stars, not 5, because I think there is still much room for improvement. I love how customizable it is but I wish it would more seamlessly download online account data. It does well enough to make it quite useful, but I was hoping for something as polished as the free Personal Capital app, which is outstanding in its own right but Moneydance still outperforms Personal Capital by enabling unlimited categories, envelope budgeting, etc. I am just mildly annoyed that I need to manually update my TSP account and the Zillow market value for my home and my credit card transactions are not automatically downloaded. I also wish the mobile companion app had more features, but it functions pretty well enabling categorization of recent transactions on the move. Bottom line is Moneydance is my preferred financial management program, but a Moneydance and Personal Capital marriage would produce the perfect financial management offspring that would far outshine them both.

Works for me


I had been using Quicken but was frustrated when it worked so poorly on Mac. So I switched to Moneydance. It does everything I need - which is to track income and expenditures. Creating all the categories is time consuming. Sometimes less intutive than I would like, but it works great. And there is tech support, even long after I purchased it. I do not use it to track investments - that’s too complicated for me. But it keeps banking and as many credit cards as you want. It lists assets and liabilities (inc. mortgage). And the tools for income and expenses are helpful at tax time. I finally had to ask for tech support to be able to increase the font size for viewing each register. Hint - it’s in Preferences! - I never would have found it. I like it and will continue using it. I recommend it.

Great financial software; online connectivity can be difficult to set up


I’ve been using MoneyDance since 2014. I use it primarily to track and reconcile expenses from my bank and credit cards, and to a lesser extent as budgeting tool. It has an intuitive interface and loads of features. The one area for improvement is connectivity with online banking. It works, but is not straightforward to set up. When I first started using the software, it took me a while to get it working. I suspect the fussiness of this aspect of the software is the cause of some of the negative reviews related to connectivity. Overall, it’s a great product and I would definitely recommend it.
