Ratings and Reviews
I hate to leave a negative review, I appreciate the work that goes into building a program but I am just not thrilled with this one which was by no means inexpensive. Why do I have to click so many buttons to perform the most simple tasks? Categories and reconciling for example take so many click click clicks! Repetitive actions should be simple to tab through without going back and forth from mouse to keyboard repeatedly. Categories should not need to be “programmed in” with each new vendor, should simply tab to categories and scroll/click for locations without going to mouse and programming each one. Reconciling items should require one easy action, not three or more, not three buttons simultaneously either, just one tap please. Perhaps not worth mentioning as it is a subjective aspect, I just don’t like the interface. I think in an attempt to make it “look simple” it looks almost elementary consequently it adds so many spaces, colors and lines that it’s cumbersome to quickly view. Laslty, I spent the extra $ for app to sync on phone and it is just not reliable. If I use it on one device, when go back to other it asks me which version I want to keep and delete, I cannot be confident I will not lose data. I would like this program more if it streamlined it’s appearance and daily use and made the cloud more reliable. Honestly if had been less expensive I would ditch it.
I moved to iFinance from Quicken, haven't looked back
iFinance has lots of great features. The ones I use the most are downloading transactions from all my banks via OFX/QFX files (I’ve had no problems importing QFX files, and import files on a weekly basis from about a half-dozen banks), syncing my data to iCloud so that I can use iFinance on my iPhone and Watch, and setting up budgets to track my spending.
I like to have lots of details about my finances, and iFinance let's me do that. iFinance is especially strong in letting me manage cash, credit, savings, and checking accounts. You can track stocks and mutual funds, but there's currently no way for me to import stock data (the developers said they'd look into adding this feature). I also really appreciate that I can use iCloud to sync my financial data between my Mac, iPhone, Watch, and iPad. It lets me keep track of my finances no matter where I am. I also prefer to use iCloud since I have more control over my data, compared to other using other companies' cloud services.
I’m liking iFinance 4
This is a great application for tracking banking and credit card accounts. I migrated from iBank after many years of use. Import from iBank QIF files was seamless. Just export a separate QIF for each account and them import them into iFinance individually. Results = correct balances, correct payees, correct categories, and correct reconcilliations. The default export on iBank is all of your accounts combined. Be sure to export each account individually.
The major difference in the records between iFinance and iBank is that iBank does not have a Title field. Not a problem for me because all other imported records are correct. I use the blank Title field in iFinance to indicate when I imported the data from iBank. I use the Title field in new transactions similarly to how I used the Note field in iBank. The Title field is a change in workflow, but it makes the transaction much more descriptive.
Syncing via iCloud between Macs, iPhone, and iPads works perfectly. Preferences for opening databases and currency symbol location need to be set on each device. Help documentation is downloaded with the app, clearly written, and contains useful graphics. Synium replied to my email questions about switching from the demo to the app and Preference settings on individual devices within minutes.
All-in-all the iFinance series of apps is working extremely well for me.
