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.

This is a handy swiss army knife of an application. The basic concept remains simple. Highlight some text press Cmd+L and you have a new page and a new automatically hypherlinked word or word set. The new palettes and tabbed windows just increase its effectiveness. I use it for organizing notes, application tips, contacts. Flexible and free form, you can organize pages and documents it the way you want them.
The developer is very responsive and the program continues on an upward climb usability. I've bought it for work and home.

I have real mixed feelings about Liquid Ledger.

When I moved my accounting over from a Wintel machine, II did not want to use Quicken even though it came with the macmini.

Quicken is for my money (if you will excuse the pun) an overblown program made cumbersome by "features" with felt like an attempt to leverage more money out of the userbase.

Liquid Ledger is not like that. It is slim. The model of working mainly in the Ledger when inputting data and reconciling works for me.

There aren't as many reports, but I can live without them.

But LL also feels unfinished. There are no contextual menus, no autosave, no autobackup. Somethings that should work all the time, drop and drag ordering of transactions for instance, work sometimes for me, but mostly not. And it periodically crashes.

I paid for a license, I am using it. It feels worthy ... but unfinished. If the rate of improvements are slow I can see myself drifting onto another program, but I am not sure which... there is a real market for a cocoa based accounting program.
