The positive: -They have the most beautiful icon in the whole app store. -I'm in love with the beneficiaries, I can customize with the icon, it's great! -The refund box. -Good iCloud synchronization. -Beautiful icons and beautiful typography, good size. -Categories and tags within preferences (although you should be able to resize the window). The negative (to be improved): -No automatic payments. -You can't see future transactions. (The forecast in the report is very basic). -You can't hide the time of the transaction. -You can't customize budgets by folders, or labels (and in turn individually by dates). -No alarms with iCal. -I would like to be able to separate by months the total transactions when scrolling. -I would like to be able to add keyboard shortcuts to switch between table and list view. -I would like to be able to save reports as favorites for quick reference without having to change preferences. -I would like to be able to see reports as tables and also the smart accounts to export them as pdf. -I would like to be able to see expenses in calendar view. And the web tutorial should include screenshots of the app.

Jumsoft spams with notifications with machine. Doesn't allow you uninstall. Horrible -- is this a virus/worm or professional software?

What's "Free" is the trial period of a month. At the end of that time, the user's Apple account is automatically charged for a one year subscription to Money Premium. At the end of that year, renewal is also automatic. However, other options are available at different prices. Here is the current pricing schedule: Money Standard: $11.99 Money Premium yearly subscription with direct download updates: $49.99 Money Premium monthly subscription with direct download updates: $4.99 Be sure to read the fine print on the app's page at the Mac App Store.

After checking out the website their is no mention of Bill Pay as part of the program. I am of the opinion, given current technology, that to purchase a personal financial program that includes bank connections for downloading transactions without providing Bill Pay is a waste of time and money.

One of my favorite apps of all time. I've been with Money since 2013 and always loved its simple and easy to use approach for conveniently recording your cash flows and having a record on hand for reference. Money 5 seems to have taken this approach further and improved pretty much every single area of the app. I actually spend less time in it now not because I don't like to, but because I don't have to - they really nailed Apple's "it just works" concept. Their direct connection to banks is a life saver for a serial procrastinator like me: my only wish is that they would bring this feature to their iOS app - my phone goes everywhere with me, so it would be much more convenient to have my transactions downloaded directly into Money on my phone, instead of having to open the Mac app for this. Their blog says direct bank connection is coming to iOS in the near future so hopefully they stick to their promise. Meanwhile, iCloud synchronization works like a charm, so anything it downloads immediately visible on my phone. Kudos to JumSoft for making such a great app!

Offers some of the best sync experience between devices unlike other accounting products which seem to only sync when they feel like it. Design is very beautiful and super user friendly with all the important features underneath. Supports a large list of banks for automatic connection.

What the heck was the developer thinking?? Version 5 has totally ruined an otherwise fine application (Money 4), except for the lack of syncing with the iOS counterpart. The horrible "eye candy" as well reduced functionality makes version 5 pretty useless for me. What a pity... I am now exploring alternatives, and so far Moneyspire looks like it can fill the gap left behind.

If you would like to know where is your money disappeared, download Money 4. This utility should track your expenditures and incomes and would definitely help to save a part. It's simple to use, has a nice interface and categorized by different fields. Its easy to make a balance with this app. I know there are other alternatives but I like this app the most. It's just my user opinion based on design and options available. I would suggest trying it to have your own experience.

v4.7.0 is what's currently downloading, NOT 4.7.1. I verified this fact over at the Jumsoft website. I wrote a note to Jumsoft today asking why, in the 21st century, Money doesn't have any way of detecting, downloading or installing updates. (0_o)

LOL....right, like anyone would normally pay $780 for personal finance software! Plus, you can get it on the Mac App Store for $40...why pay $55 (@ 93% off!).

I think someone has punked MacUpdate on this one.

I have used Money for quite a few years. Last week, I have moved my data to iCompta… Money was a good app some years ago, but in the meantime the competition has moved, and at this point, Money has just gotten old. There haven't been any significant new features for the last two years – it seems development was only about fixing syncing: first the iCloud-disaster, then a sometimes working, sometimes not-working solution using Dropbox. Like some other users who commented here, I bought one of Jumsoft's other apps (Relationship), and well, I was quite shocked when Jumsoft abandoned all these apps suddenly and without giving any notice – the apps just disappeared from one day to the other from Jumsoft's website. I guess it will be the same with Money. Probably they milk the app for as long as it works and then it gets abandoned – Jumsoft's website already kind of points into that direction, the "Money"-centred blog is gone, there is only news about the new iWork templates. I don't have a problem with a developer who concentrates on those products that bring the most profit and kills products that don't sell well. That's OK with me, but at this point I just want to give advice to potential customers of Money: don't waste your money on this app – check out the competition: there are many apps that are much more powerful, easy to use and without the syncing-problems and well, with an actual future. And yes, some of them cheaper than Jumsoft's Money. My personal favourite is iCompta, but there are other nice finance apps there…

A little bit disappointed with version 4 in my opinion it has gone backward. I used to be able to run my small business from version 3.6 but v4 has turned Money into a home budget manager. It may be ok for you if that's all you are after but for me it only scores a 3. Older version would score a 4.5.

Well then, for Money, the iCloud adventure is over. Jumsoft has replaced iCloud-syncing with the old WiFi-syncing again. Before updating Money, you should make a backup of your iCloud-file (at opening screen, just drag the file to the desktop or somewhere else). Once updated, Money tries to download the file by itself. For me, the app crashed during this process, and just saved a blank file. Luckily I had backed up before. I don't think we should blame Jumsoft for the problems with iCloud. I had the same kinds of problems with all other iCloud-supporting apps, even the ones from Apple (iWork). Well OK, we have to blame the guys from Jumsoft for being just too optimistic that Apple wouldn't screw up (again). The whole "Documents and Data"-thing of iCloud is pretty dangerous with any app, many have lost their documents and data using it… Usually, when a file can't be opened again, just uncheck documents and data in SystemPreferences>iCloud, and then check it again. All files will be deleted from your mac, and then downloaded again. Most of the time, you can open your files again, and everything is perfect. Sometimes however, a file gets corrupted and you can't open it anymore. Anyway, it is important to back up your iCloud documents (Library>Mobile Documents). Of course Jumsoft hasn't handled the iCloud-incident very well, and I am sure they have lost many customers. Rightly so. However, I stay with Money, as the app has served me so well for a long time. I wish they'd establish their own safe syncing server solution, like the OmniGroup has for OmniFocus.

It greatest (or worst if you ask previous owners) new feature would be great if only iCloud sync worked. At best, it allows you the security of having your data file off-site in case your Mac is lost, damaged or stolen. But when it comes to syncing it w/ Money's iOS offerings, the results are abysmal...it doesn't work at all!! There continues to be bugs with settings and general UI issues that make you scratch your head. For example, you can't split loan payments for transfers (ie mortgage principal, escrow, insurance). Other times, the screen will be blank when opening and I have to restart the app several times before it shows my data. The reporting features are very limited versus Quicken offerings. Overall, I love the GUI and simplicity of Money, but the execution is just poorly done and the development & support are even worse. Just cannot recommend this to anyone wanting to depend on their financial data with it.

It's hilarious that an app called money needs the last hardware/os to run, so much for savings. Anyway, all this apps are bad for me, as they don't calculate if I can pay hollidays of 2000$ in a year, and they don't even warn me if I am spending too much and that goal won't be achieved, it's just the same monthly budget, that's needed but incomplete. I find tha app Debtinator so much powerfull, if it only had an Android app companion...

Same as iBank: Problems setting up bank accounts with the website. Same as my review about iBank... Any of the following happens when creating a new account: -when setting up a new account: "OFX server error (15500): Singon (User ID or password) invalid" (And I am 100% sure the user and password match my user for said bank website. -when setting up a new account, if the bank settings work: "Select the account you want to add to Money" (and the list is blank) -finally, the one account that worked, when downloading transactions: "Error: Bank number not found" Bottom line: wonderful app, great idea, features need to be fine tuned. Useless until then.

Appealing to the eye and with useful features, at least for personal/home business users (budgeting, reports, reconcile accounts, scheduler). Clearly better than previous version. Still, developer don't seem to like keyboard shortcuts: reconcile lacks one, as main sections do (after all they refer to the same underlying data, can be considered just different views). Also lacking is a folder feature for smart accounts: I create many of them. Multiple entries editing would be handy (es. reconcile) Transactions right panel hides last two colums (default are amount and balance, quite important to see). No problem syncing with iPhone app (just a little visual glitch, application window disappears for a moment under 10.6.8 running on a last generation Mac Pro. Last thing: 'left' translate in 'rimasti' -italian verb, not in 'sinistra' -italian adjective, completely out of context here

I come from MoneyWell, which I liked but finally had to abandon, because of the many bugs and syncing errors, etc. that cost me lots of time. After intensive testing, I finally settled with Money. No problems (bugs or errors) so far (using it for two months now). I main reason I decided for Money 4 over the other apps, is its clean design/UI. It is great to use with different currencies (multiple currencies transactions within one account), very important for me. Import of my old data also worked well (QIF) and the iPhone app is good and quick too. This app is easy to use, but still powerful, once one has discovered all the features (Smart Accounts, etc.). It's not cluttered at all, and it looks beautiful. I am very happy with it. I strongly recommend to test finance apps over a longer period (until the demo is over) and only after that judge about it. I know intensive testing costs a lot of time (and it's boring with finance apps to keep track on four different apps), but in the end it helps a lot to make a good decision. Next to Money4 I tested iFinance, iBank and Squirrel, and these are all very good apps. However, keep in mind that finance is something very personal, and not every app works for everybody. While Money 4 looked not very powerful at first sight, it showed after a while that it worked much, much better for me than all the other apps. So give it a fair try, it's a great app!

Money 4.0.1 is a great update and brings a lot of missing features from the earlier version. However, what has kept me away from it yet, is the buggy import process from Version 3.0. A few accounts get imported in a different currency from the default and mess with the net asset value figures. While I have manually reset most of the accounts, I have not been able to figure a way to reset the portfolio which has imported all my data in USD. The kind of figure showing as my net asset value right now should make me a serious contender for the position of one of the worlds richest people. In touch with the support team to figure a way to get the portfolio currency right. Will increase the star rating of the app once these issues are resolved. Must add, that the overall interface and features are good and the support team and customer service is amazingly good.

After trying just about every small biz accounting apps out there, and after 2 years now, Money clearly serves our needs best. Easy to set-up, elegant and intuitive to use on a daily basis, and dependable. We are very pleased to have found this app for our (2) separate small businesses (Photography Studio and small wholesale distribution co.). Also impressive are the regular updates and improvements. Keep up the good work !

While the interface is wonderful, the concept strong and the free iPhone app great, the lack of automated online banking integration is killing this solution for me. There is promise from Jumpsoft that version 4.0 will introduce that feature, but until then, this is a no-go. There are plenty of alternatives out there, each with their own shortcomings, but at this date, Moneywell is the one I'm sold on. Their problems will hopefully be remedied by next major version but overall, it's a much better solution w/ the automated banking. /

I was testing this out as a Quicken replacement. Observations: - One of the few programs that imported my QIF data correctly (and quickly, too); SEE Finance is the only other I've found that could do it. - There is no overview of how much money was in each account and how much money I have total. I consider this a show-stopper. Maybe I missed it, but I looked in the manual and couldn't find anything. Most programs display it in the main window without making you go hunt for the information. - It does have investment accounts (rare, but also found in iBank, MoneyDance and SEE FInance). Unfortunately they are intended for fancy mixes of investments, not simple mutual funds. Thus they have no running total of shares owned. (SEE FInance is the only program I've tried that supports simple mutual funds well.) Conclusion: not for me, but if they add an overview of how much each account is worth I may take another look.

I want to say that I am very impressed with the amount of developer responses that I have seen in these comments. I have experience either total silence or a failure to understand that there is a problem that needs their attention from many a developer when I approached them with a problem. Here I see this developer at least is trying. I do not currently use Money, but I am going to try their application again simply because they still seem to care. And that matters.

Does not work with larger files when trying to import. I exported my Quicken qif file (about 8mb) from the past 7-8 years. Money is the only finance program that could not import it at all. It chokes and then crashes. I sent the report to the developers and they said there is a "memory management problem during import." with no fix in site (i.e. they have no idea when or if it will be fixed. So if you've got several years of data, don't try Money. I also wonder if you use Money over time if you will exceed the "framework" the software established and corrupt your data???

Definitely thumbs up across the board for design and ease of use. The devs have obviously spent a great deal of time making sure that the app is comprehensive in it's features yet not intimidating in it's look or use. However the inability to download my bank account's data directly into the application without opening a separate webpage is crippling. I previously used Quicken and now use MoneyWell, both have the ability to download directly into the app. However both suffer a bit from over-design, and this is why I decided to try Money. But without the conveinence of being able to just open the app and hit a button or two to download back account data is a major negative for what otherwise would be a great app.

Have tried the version that comes with MacFormat (version 2.5.9) but had a problem when importing from Ibank. Data could not be saved. Multiple validation errors occurred, but no explanation what could be wrong. Cannot find any misstakes. Also, it would be nice to reconcile all transactions at once (tried to import a half year). I don't want to lose the information i have gathered.
