Just to let everyone know, I am in the process of rewriting mini$. The "Core" has already been revised and fine-tuned. It is faster, more organized, and tested rigorously via a comprehensive test suite. The UI is currently being completely overhauled. The new mini$ will support "Keywords" and "Color Labels" that can be applied to transactions. The UI will use the same icons and colors found in other iLife apps and the layouts will be streamlined. Tools similar to "Smart Folders" will be available for creating user defined searches (which will most likely replace budgets). Lastly, one of my goals for the new version is to be very keyboard friendly. I hope to have everything finished in a few months. I have been able to get a hold of a PPC Mac, so there will be support for those machines. Cheers !!

Great software. I am only having a problem with the new version. Is still there a way to see a budget organized by categories AND customizable time period? I would like to be able to review the categories of expenses by month starting at any date in the past. It was possible before I updated the software. Now in trends I can only find predefined dates while in the statement account the expenses are not classified by category. Am I missing something?

I'm coming from Microsoft Money and this app almost fits my needs. The only thing missing is reports. For example, where I can pull by pay and see how much i spent, pull by month, year, category, etc. This is the only thing that's stopping me from using it.

The "Trends" section organizes all your transactions by category. Along the bottom, there are options for choosing the date range, and whether or not to include income and expenses. From there, you use the search field to narrow your results. If you want to see all trends by "Payee", you select the "Pay to/from" in the search field and they type. The results will update as you type. You can also create account statements via "Window -> Account Statements...", and you can create printable transaction reports in any view that displays transactions by selecting the transactions you want to report on and select "Edit -> Build Report...".

Dear Roth, Ver 4.1 looks great! Thank you for the amazing product. I was used to using the right click to covert transactions to transfers between accounts, but I can't find this feature anymore. I work around it by creating new transfer transactions. Will the conversion feature be added again in later 4.x versions? Thank you once again! -KRS

The "convert to transfer" functions had some potential issues, so I took them out. I can look into making them more reliable.

If you are upgrading from v3 to v4, then no. All you need to do is just select the mini$ file you were already using when v4 runs for the first time. If you are upgrading from v2 to v4, you have to migrate the data first.

Hi, May I ask if mini$ can track the loan outstanding on my mortgage everytime I make an instalment payment, taking into account that both principal and interest is paid? Also, can it track individual stocks in a portfolio, either by manually entering the price or is there internet update of prices? Thanks.

Good morning Roth: How the heck are you doing? I'm someone who used to work with you... Hey I just downloaded mini$, extracted the jar, and am running it on my Linux machine. Works great! It's a nice piece of software -- simple and easy to use, with a clean user interface. The only problem I have is that the reminders repeat function doesn't seem to be working. Any chance you can explain that to me? Hope to get in touch with you soon. Have a great New Year!

Hi there. I would like to ask Roth if there's any chance of having the other languages also updated. My wife is using mini$ in Portuguese and if possible I would like to show her the nice improvements since version 3.x but in this case the English version is not an option. Thank you!

The Portuguese language translation is currently being done. It may take some time, a few weeks maybe. When it is done, the "Check for updates" feature will let you know there is an update.

A brilliant little program, I installed over 8,000 historical transactions with QIF and only a few errors occurred which I can easily rectify at my leisure.. Only one teeni weeni comment to make if I may... Although negative and positive Splits are imported with QIF correctly they cannot be entered manually from within the program itself. I came across this problem when trying to create an Automated Entry for my Salary. Example : (Positive) Gross Salary 2,000 minus (Negative) Income Tax 500 should result in 1,500 being allowed to enter in the Register. Alas... only ALL negatives or ALL positives are handled within Splits... Otherwise .... Brilliant piece of software....

The source code has been posted on MacUpdate. With some luck, maybe some other developers will take off with it and add some needed features. I have just a few more things to do with it and that will be it for me.

This is a great app. Really simple and straight forward, and very easy to use. I downloaded quite a few apps to try and googled everywhere for a good, free app that could manage my finances. Most of them were too complicated for me, or looked really ugly in terms of interface. Download this app if you don't know all the terminologies of finance and just want a simple planner to manage your money. I really love Mini$! Thanks Roth. This app deserves more attention. :)
