Appealing to the eye and with useful features, at least for personal/home business users (budgeting, reports, reconcile accounts, scheduler). Clearly better than previous version. Still, developer don't seem to like keyboard shortcuts: reconcile lacks one, as main sections do (after all they refer to the same underlying data, can be considered just different views). Also lacking is a folder feature for smart accounts: I create many of them. Multiple entries editing would be handy (es. reconcile)
Transactions right panel hides last two colums (default are amount and balance, quite important to see).
No problem syncing with iPhone app (just a little visual glitch, application window disappears for a moment under 10.6.8 running on a last generation Mac Pro.
Last thing: 'left' translate in 'rimasti' -italian verb, not in 'sinistra' -italian adjective, completely out of context here

I'm seeing I can modify the look of the Viewer in the PrefPane.

One more thing: reports (by account, category, sub-category)?

Interesting product in between itunes/bento-like softwares (graphically popping) and something more old-style. I'm not a counselor or an accountant: keeping home finance, and maybe starting a little business in the near future.

Sharing few points, affecting the user 'experience', as they say: a) keyboard shortcuts are lacking (I'm a keyboard guy); b) smart folders are lacking; c) I'd prefer a cleaner Viewer ( a bit too colors, I mean, not tremendous as in other applications, but ...) with clearer balance and values (how is the logic behind the day balance listing?).

In the software I'm using now there's no budgeting, no stocks (but i'm not interested in that), reports lack real diagrams (even simple diagrams), but clean, fast data input and smart folders for a little analytcs and exporting to Numbers.
If i could put it all in one apt package (i.e iFinance), I'd be more than happy!

The bottom line: keep an eye on iFinance. If it keeps evolving in the good direction, just have a closer look (and the price is right). 3 Stars going to 4
