A great app, used it since it came out.. v.5 looks good.. BUT have now discovered Easy Books that can replace my iCompta/GrandTotal/TimeLog combo, so I will not update to 5. I found what I need for my all-in-one app for my little freelance business.

For years I've used Prospects to manage my finances, but since the developer has abandoned it I was forced to find a new financial application. After testing out about a dozen different ones (see Finance, Money, MoneyDance, MoneyGuru, MoneyManager Ex, MoneyWell, Squirrel, Finance2Go, iFinance and a few others), I decided to buy iCompta.

The Good:
- Very easy to use and enter transactions
- Lots of reports
- Does a great job importing QIF files
- Looks fantastic and acts very Mac-like
- Has a companion app for the iPad/iPhone which syncs very easily
- Great price (especially with 25% discount) for the program and app. I paid under $30 for both while may other finance programs are $50 or more for just the Mac version
- Stable. I haven't had iCompta crash or needed a Force Quit yet

The Bad:
- No home page view that gives you a net worth view of your accounts
- Can't move the transaction detail pane to the right side which makes it a pain (pun intended) for left-handed users
- The animations are a bit slow for the reports

The Ugly:
- Doesn't hand stock investments very well. there is no way to input # of shares or automatically download updated pricing.
- Not a lot of documentation. For a program that has this many features, you'd expect a comprehensive manual or help file. Instead you're redirected to a webpage with only basic instructions on how to use the program.

iCompta for Mac:

It's a really nice software. Easy to use and all features that a finance software need.

But the best thing is, you can use it also on the iPhone.

iCompta for iPhone:

The iPhone-App looks exactly the same and has the same features.
You can sync via Dropbox and WiFi.
And the iPhone-App is also a standalone-product.

There is no other software which is so simple and can be used on Mac AND iPhone.
A must-have!

Like other reviewers I've been through several alternatives (giving up on iBank along the way for the same reasons), and am now using iCompta along with Moneywell for their varieties of output and insight. (I imported everything from a Moneywell QIF then spent some time manually sorting out categories & transaction info).

What I'm mostly getting out of iCompta is good multicurrency & overall chart view when selecting various accounts and imo great historical reportage over various time frames. There's a fine filtering system too for more detailed readouts. This has helped set up budgets for future time frames, which also read out well and quite flexibly.

It has its oddities - only basic default menus, meaning you have to be ready to mouse through all the icons dotted around the window, & limited preferences, but overall it responds very well & quickly to my large amount of input (incl 4 years of daily cashflow along with a couple dozen account records over 7 years).

Good reception from Cyril, the developer, who replies that folders or binders will appear in v.4. It also has been syncing very easily with the iPhone version.

What I find really astounding about iCompta is that it's free. I donated 20 euros and still feel slightly guilty compared to what other programs are charging. Anyway, it's a deal. Don't overlook it just because it's nominally free.

Is there some smart import rules capabilities? I want to stop using iBank (buggy, buggy and oh, BUGGY), but this one feature from iBank is very nice for CSV import. Saves tons of manual work...

Version 2.1

If you open your CSV and change the commas to tabs then it is the same thing as iCompta TSV, but note the following.

L1: Date\tType\tKind\tInfo\tFrequency\tDescription\tAmount\tCheck\tCheck date\tComment
L2: 08/01/08\t\tRent\tCheckTransaction\tMonthlyOperation\tRent to Apt\t-550\t1\t08/01/08

- \t represents a tab, replace with tab
- line 1 are the standard descriptions which can't change.
- line 2-n are the transactions
- if you don't have a specific value use a double tab (\t\t)
- check is whether you verified the transaction
- kind and frequency are iCompta specific (experiment to learn all types)

I would suggest experimenting with creating a sample bank in iCompta, exporting it then looking at the export in TextEdit

Unable to import OFX or QIF files. When I click on Import Button and select format for importing and then pick file to import, nothing appears in the account. Cannot use iCompta if it cannot import downloaded bank statements.

I a really excited about trying this, but it does not seem to be able to save anything - I just get "iCompta[10430] Invalid store URL: nil" in the console when I try to save...

Wonderful application. There are a lot of sometimes hugely overpriced personal finance programs, and this one has the right price (after I donate) for the tasks I do; I use a Numbers spreadsheet to manage investments and iCompta to manage day-to-day accounts. If you want an application to do both, look elsewhere; iCompta is designed for day-to-day work.

Being able to put in amounts straight away after first starting up then tidy things up later (no need to input tiresome "categories" or "classes") and everything being presented on one screen where it can be edited in place are probably the most useful features, but the presentation overall is first-rate.

Earlier versions were slightly buggy, but this one seems sound; I see that even little but annoying bugs, such as the Date field for transactions being clipped, have gradually been worked out.
