Xmarks version 1.4.3 is not compatible with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Xmarks (at least through 1.4.3) requires SyncServices, which was deprecated with Mac OS 10.7 and removed entirely in 10.9.

Um... why is this app trying to access my Contacts and my Exchange account info in the keychain?

I love the app in general, but if it's mining my contacts, it's getting dumped in a hurry!

I do have alerts set up. But I enter an email address for it to send to in the preferences. I still don't understand why it would need to access my contacts. I suppose it may be accessing my exchange info in order to send an email, so there is that.

I've been using Quicken for Mac for almost 20 years, and when Lion forced the issue, I couldn't switch to Quicken Essentials because of the features it lacked. I had to find an alternative.

THANK YOU Intuit for giving me the incentive I needed to kick your half-hearted, perpetually buggy pile of... software to the curb!

I tried a few alternatives and finally settled on iBank, and I couldn't be happier. Older versions were pretty lacking in various ways, but the latest version does everything I need simply and beautifully. Importing 19 years of records was seamless. And with their track record, I expect it to continue to get better and better.

Now, it's not perfect. There are a few things that could be more streamlined, and there was definitely a learning curve. It does things just enough differently from Quicken. But actually reading the manual and watching a few tutorial videos on the website had me up and running. Once I learned how to make it do what I wanted, I have yet to catch myself thinking "I liked the way Quicken did this better..." And it's much more stable than any Quicken version I've ever used.

I know I sound like a shill, but honestly, I'm just a REALLY happy customer. If in doubt, do what I did. You get the 30-day trial, so just run both side-by-side for a few weeks.

FYI - There is a new Universal beta (3.3b6) on the website that will run on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)

I'll upgrade when this can optimize sparse bundles so the segments are contiguous on the drive. I use FileVault and smart bundles for Parallels drives so Time Machine doesn't have to back up gigabytes every time some little thing changes. But if this tool doesn't optimize sparse bundles, or worse, scatters them around the drive trying to optimize free space, it's not a lot of use to me.

That said, I do like the ability to optimize single, large files. That would be great for my WoW folder. :)
