In the country I was in (Thailand), got in Safari:

I'm no geek. Just launched Tor, & through it came.
I love this thing. :)

No review, just a comment here. Much appreciate reading the reviews below just now, & I agree - there's some kind of input/feedback issue.

After a while of using OmniFocus it seemed more than was needed in some ways - excellent for in-depth projects, but for day-to-day, at times overkill.. Then I tested Things & found myself benefiting from using both. Same with the iphone versions.

Ok, more expensive to register, but if you're serious about keeping track maybe worth checking into. OmniFocus for monthly/yearly stuff, Things (or Hit List or whatever) for daily/weekly. Fwiw.

Still works great (using 10.5.8). Love watching the ongoing process - Log (wget). Plenty enough configuration/usage options too. Excellent piece of software.

Just $200? Oh yippee! quick, where's my credit card.. And SUCH a gorgeous interface - must be connected with Asram software.

Been using this for years - interesting to see the development. Budgeting charts nice & informative, reports quite good for categories, importing works within limitations and sometimes obscurely, but still some other issues:

The 3D charts are glossy and fancy, but too much so with 'lines', which look like spaghetti & are hard to decipher. The 2D equivalent is really basic. Something in between, Numbers style, would be better, imo.

Multi-currency works well for the left panel overview. You can change the main currency in the prefs (nice if there was a more accessible way & even a choice to list more than one at the top summary) but you still can't combine currencies for chart readouts, which most other programs do. Baffling.

If you want to redefine several beneficiaries you'd normally select them all and do so, but that option disappears leaving you to do them one by one. Again, frustrating.

I'm using this mostly so far for account and budget overviews. Looking forward to more flexibility.

Like other reviewers I've been through several alternatives (giving up on iBank along the way for the same reasons), and am now using iCompta along with Moneywell for their varieties of output and insight. (I imported everything from a Moneywell QIF then spent some time manually sorting out categories & transaction info).

What I'm mostly getting out of iCompta is good multicurrency & overall chart view when selecting various accounts and imo great historical reportage over various time frames. There's a fine filtering system too for more detailed readouts. This has helped set up budgets for future time frames, which also read out well and quite flexibly.

It has its oddities - only basic default menus, meaning you have to be ready to mouse through all the icons dotted around the window, & limited preferences, but overall it responds very well & quickly to my large amount of input (incl 4 years of daily cashflow along with a couple dozen account records over 7 years).

Good reception from Cyril, the developer, who replies that folders or binders will appear in v.4. It also has been syncing very easily with the iPhone version.

What I find really astounding about iCompta is that it's free. I donated 20 euros and still feel slightly guilty compared to what other programs are charging. Anyway, it's a deal. Don't overlook it just because it's nominally free.

Developer - get your versions right. The download results in version 4.1.2. So the 'upgrade' results in a hang.
