    Quicken Essentials
    I know that Quicken pretty much sucks when it comes to Mac's, but I've tried iBank and Money Dance and was not impressed. I've used Quicken for years on my Windows machines and I don't make use of The investing features or online bill pay. Is there someone that uses it just to maintain their checkbook? If it does that I'd be a happy camper.

    If you're looking for an app to manage your checkbook and do some other small on line banking tasks, then you may be interested in "CheckBook" by Splasm software. A great bargain at $14.95. I use it all the time.

    Thumbs up Quicken Essentials
    I recently migrated from PC to Mac and have been using Quicken for Windows for 20+ years and was keen to try out the Mac version. Naturally, I am very familiar and comfortable with the Windows version and after checking many of the reviews I was skeptical about making the switch. I tried iBank but it didn't seem that good, plus it was $10 more, so I took the plunge and yesterday installed Quicken Essentials.

    True, it does not have all the features of its Window parent but I was able to find some workarounds (e.g. downloading from non supported banks) and I think it is going to be OK.
