Fantastic app. Powerful but still pretty easy to use, very customisable.
+ Incredibly well designed and feature rich iOS companion apps.
+ Finally a finance app developer that gets syncing right! Syncing over iCloud, Dropbox or local network. You don't have to move your file into the iCloud or Dropbox folder to sync, but just leave it in your own folder structure – the copies it creates in the cloud are just temporary for syncing. Syncing is very reliable, merging the data, you never lose anything (unlike many other apps that struggle at syncing…)
+ Very responsive developer, quick support, very helpful discussions in the forums. Developer has a very open policy about future development of the app. Seems he puts a lot of time, effort and love into iCompta.
+ Well designed, Mac-like UI. And well, it's a beautiful app…
+ Quick and easy entering of transactions
+ Budgeting with envelope system, or, if you don't like that, with the more common progress bars
+ Very good at importing bank data. Especially the CSV import (which is still important dealing with international banks) is really refined and you can tinker the import options to a high degree (and save them for later use), so you don't have to "clean up" the transactions later…
+ Powerful features, easy to use: Subcategories, owner (for each transaction), assign transaction to a project. Splits are very easy to use, single transactions can very easily be excluded from statistics or budget, etc. etc. etc.
+ Fine tuning of reports and charts is incredibly sophisticated, powerful (with use of conditions, compound conditions, etc.)
+ Compared to the competition and considering the features, this app has at a ridiculously low price tag. And well, the iOS version is even cheaper, 4$ for the iOS app that works both for the iPhone and the iPad – I've never seen such a well designed piece of software at such a low price.
- The help file / manual is not searchable. Couldn't find a PDF version of it
- No support for MT940 (which isn't much of a deal for the most part…)
