Is this better than MoneyWell?

Way better than Moneywell! Moneywell sucks and doesn't even come close to Cashcow. Cashcow is as powerful as Microsoft Money, but with a Mac interface. I would buy it ASAP if I were you.

Nice app, definitely 5 Stars!

Possibly a "Quicken Killer".

Hands down the best financial application in the free to $20 range.

Still in demo mode, but I plan on purchasing a license soon. This program is that good!

Very simple and easy to use with a nice interface to go along.

Highly recommended. Well worth the price.

After seeing the price go from $60 to $40, and now $20, I decided to try it out.

My thoughts... a waste of time and money. If we could sue people for wasting our time, this developer would qualify. It claims to import... not. Easy to use... no way. Intuitive... not even close.

Worth $20... hardly.

If you think so, then I have some car exhaust in a bottle marked "Fresh Air" to sell you for not $20... but $19.95.

Be very wary of this program. It is for sale, yet they are using "free" icons that are licensed under "GNU". Specifically, the one used for "Spending" which is from the "Crystal SVG" icon set.

Basically, this outfit is in violation of law, and if since they are attempting to generate revenue while using already licensed work.

Tsk tsk tsk...

Hi Roth,

All of the icons used in Cashcow are from the Crystal set (from www.everaldo.com) which I think is a fantastic set of icons.

The Crystal icons are licensed under the LGPL (http://www.everaldo.com/crystal/?action=license) which has provisions for linking them to commercial products.

If you right click on Cashcow and click on the Show Package Contents you will find the icons are readily accessible and haven't been obscured inside any executables.

50 bucks for a simple app like this from a company called "Ratface"? You've gotta be kidding, people. The company's web page even features a ridiculous spelling error in a massive typeface (it's "budgeting", not "budgetting") which speaks volumes about their attention to detail. At best, this app is worth $15, and they definitely needs a more respectful company name-tag.
