the following is a copy of an email sent to IGG:
i was a very long term Quicken user. i mean really long term, since the days of DOS. after switching to Mac in 2007, & after deciding to ditch the Parallels virtual Windows OS so i could use my trusty windows version of Quicken, i picked up the mac version of quicken. what an utter disappointment that was. so i started looking around & finally decided to try iBank.... version 3 i think.

iBank 3 worked much better than quicken mac, especially initially. i could get to my bank account in the program, download transactions directly, etc etc. then my bank changed the way they did things online & iBank became a bit tedious to use.... but that wasn't iBank's fault.

upgrade to version 4 was good & my work arounds for my bank's protocols became easier & faster. iBank 4 was so nice to work with that i decided to add all my credit card accounts to iBank & that worked quite well, having all records ''under one roof'', so to speak.

i upgraded my mac to Mavericks & then decided to upgrade to iBank 5.

this brings me to the point of this email.

iBank 5 is a very outstanding upgrade. i had been away for nearly a month & dreaded the chore of having to download all my bank & credit card transactions for a whole month. when i started up iBank 5, i was amazed to see all my credit card accounts automatically download & update on their own. [i had seen that before but had ''forgotten'' that it did so during the time i was away.also NOTE: this is NOT via Direct Connect, i don't pay for the Direct Connect feature.] i cannot set up our local bank for that automatic web connect, so i downloaded the month's worth of transactions from our 5 checking & savings accounts.

when i went to import the download, i was delighted to see iBank break out the different accounts & ask me where i wanted the data sets to go. doing the same using iBank 4 in the past, i had, on a number of occasions, put the wrong data into the wrong accounts by not paying close enough attention. that would take a while to sort out.

iBank is not perfect yet, [i'd like some more control over the memorized transactions set up, as well as some other minor irritations], but it is a great program that seems to be getting better all the time. keep up the good work.

best regards from a VERY satisfied customer,
[Version 5.0.4]
