Personal finance management application.

Overview

moneyGuru is a personal finance management application. With it, you can evaluate your financial situation so you can make informed (and thus better) decisions. Most finance applications have the same goal, but moneyGuru's difference is in the way it achieves it. Rather than having reports which you have to configure (or find out which pre-configured report is the right one), your important financial data (net worth, profit) is constantly up-to-date and "in your face". This allows you to constantly make informed decision rather than doing so periodically.

  • Get it done right. moneyGuru is loosely based on the double-entry accounting system, where every account -- including income and expenses -- is a first class account, not just a category. It allows for a lot of flexibility in finance management strategies (such as cash management).
  • Get it done fast. moneyGuru has a very efficient navigation and editing system which allows you to painlessly go around your accounts and transactions and modify them. Keyboard shortcuts are neatly designed and efficient. Values are auto-completed when it makes sense. Date editing uses a special widget that lets you edit dates with the least possible number of keystrokes, regardless of your date format.
  • Get it in there. moneyGuru can import QIF, OFX, QFX and CSV files and can export to QIF.
  • Get international. moneyGuru has very strong support for currencies. Unlike most other applications, currency information in moneyGuru is defined at the amount level rather than the account level. This gives you a lot of flexibility for transactions with multiple currencies.
  • See it coming. moneyGuru is future aware. Select a date range that ends in the future, and see, through the sheets and charts, how scheduled transactions and budgeting will affect your finance.
  • And for the rest... you can always extend moneyGuru's functionality through plugins!

I have been using moneyGuru for a few weeks and I must say that this program leaves the others behind. While moneyGuru might very well lack some of the flash and a few of the features that the competitors have (backup to MobileMe or scheduled transactions for example) it offers a solid means of tracking accounts and spending that is straightforward and reliable. The program is very easy to use and the developer is among the most responsive that I've encountered. Ask him any question or make any suggestion and you will receive a prompt and enthusiastic reply. He is more than willing to work with you until the problem is resolved. I experienced this above and beyond style of customer support when an earlier version of moneyGuru could not import a QIF exported from a competitor program. Within less than one day the developer found the issue offered the solution and I was off and running. MoneyGuru is a work in progress and the website is right up front about this. It is being developed and improved at a respectable pace and features such as scheduled transactions will be in release 1.2 (beta version available on support site). I can recommend moneyGuru without hesitation to anyone interested in a personal financial application for the Mac OS platform. The product is solid and is backed by a developer that knows the value of satisfied customers.

Been using this software for about a year now, so I've had a chance to give it a good run and it is excellent. When I was first looking for a money/accounting app, I tried about half a dozen. This was the one I settled on, not because it was free, but because it was the easiest to learn and it imported from my bank without any glitches. Since I had taken one accounting course, I understood the basic idea of a double-entry system (which this app is "loosely based on" according to the developer) and knew it's advantages. It felt a little odd or counterintuitive at first, but ultimately it allows money to flow from one category to another without losing track of it, for example if you want to keep some cash around. I only use the app for tracking expenses and income, but it does have a budgeting function, too. Once I got into a habit, I could simply download my information from the bank a few times a month, fill in the categories and get a nice profit and loss report with pretty pie charts. It's worth trying different export and import formats--mine seems to handle the Microsoft Money format from my bank the best. After spending a minimal amount of time learning this application, I have found it to be one of the most useful. I would have liked to donate to the developer for continued development but according to their site, they "don't even like money," LOL.

This software attracted me because it seemed to have all the features I was interested in for simple personal finance, including graphs from which one could plan ahead. Unfortunately, after several attempts and one final long concerted attempt to make sense of how it works, I gave up. I've had no problem with gnucash, another double-accounting program, but this one simply won't work in any reasonable way. I can enter some data, but it doesn't show up where it should; it adds quantities that should be subtracted; it doesn't show graphs when it should; etc. I don't know whether it's a broken download, or simply doesn't like my system (Mac OS X.8.3 on an iMac - but it behaves the same way under Snow Leopard on a Mac Pro), or whether the program is so obtuse that it's very hard to figure out. In any case, I can't afford to waste any more time on it. A real shame.

I'm happy with the software. I run a very small business and it's been a good way of keeping track of expenses and income. When I started using it the developer was very helpful in assisting me to set things up.

Freeware apps do not open telling you how many hours behind the developer is in being paid at his rate of $35/hour. I have no problem with the developer expecting money for his hard work, but then make it a shareware app! Don't pawn it off as freeware and then nag me to death when I go to use it.

AS a long-term user of Liquid Ledger (after I left Quicken and Windows world), it was a relief to find this application. I was not interested in coverflow in an accounts program, don't warm to tiny pink piggy banks or need layers of budgeting widgets. I wanted an elegant clean design. MoneyGuru has a small foot print and a deceptively simple interface which makes working with the numbers easy. Make sure to watch the videos, otherwise it is easy to miss some of the features, like Mass Edit. The developer is incredibly responsive. When I ran into an initial problem importing my Liquid Ledger files, over a period of a week he worked with me to find a solution - before I purchased the application. MoneyGuru is, for me, still a little rough around the edges, in that it has little in the way of reporting and exporting features, but I feel confident these features will arrive, and, because the developer is interested in feedback from users, whatever comes will be up to the same high standard.

Another note is the dev has made the app "fairly" open source so you can build off of it's existing functions if you have a need it does not meet. I doubt many can find too much to complain about - this is great software.

I absolutely agree with GRYPHONENT and highly recommend this fabulous piece of software. The developer constantly improves his application with useful and well thought features. His support is outstanding (take a look at his support forum http://getsatisfaction.com/hardcodedsoftware) and you can also track the development of the software, if you are interested (take a look at his development site http://hg.hardcoded.net/moneyguru). He is already working on version 2 but that isn't a reason to hesitated of buying this software because "all licenses for Hardcoded Software applications come with lifetime free updates" (quote from the website of Hardcoded Software).

A quick update to my earlier review. I've been using MoneyGuru now for the last two years and I'm absolutely happy with it. It's fabulous in every respect. Multi-currency is not a problem and entries are quick and simple. Development is ongoing and support par excellence. I recommend MoneyGuru strongly!

This app does well what no other does to my satisfaction--it allows me to edit transactions inline AND shows the past and future balance. The support is excellent. It is flexible enough to fit a small economy and casual accounting and budgeting/saving, but is savvy enough to manage double entry accounting. Definitely give this one more than a cursory look (it does not look like an iTunes based app, don't be put off).

Whoa... really good. And eventually a simple way to treat multi-currency accounts. The app crashes quite regularly here and needs further development... but I'm certainly coming back for another test run. moneyGuru shows a lot of promise indeed.

I have been using this application for a couple of weeks now and am very impressed. It is a work in progress, and therefore lacks a few killer features such as scheduled transactions and forecasting, but I understand these are in the pipeline. I especially love the very intelligent autofill implementation. The developer is very responsive and hopefully will keep working on the application, unlike several others on whom I've wasted registration fees.
