There are two main programs to help Mac and iOS users manage their finances - Quicken and iBank. We’ll look at each of them in the next two months.Quicken Essentials for Mac
is an application that will allow you to budget your money, see where your money is going, organize it by category, and have access to bank and credit card accounts, export to TurboTax, working with investing, reporting and more - all in one place - your Mac!iBank 5 for Mac or iPad
is an application from IGG software that competes with Quicken and other financial management software and services. iBank 5 is a Mac and iOS only product. It’s easy to import data from other financial services (such as Quicken or Mint.com), create reports, track finances, integrate with bank accounts, and much more.
We’ll look at one of these at our July 2, 2014 meeting and the other at our August 6, 2014 meeting, and conclude with a compare and contrast listing, so you can decide which program works best to help you manage your money.
