Which app is a good replacement for Microsoft Money? I need to:

1. Import all my Microsoft Money transactions into the app.

2. The app should run on a Mac, iPad, and iPhone and automatically sync between the three devices.

3. It should be shareable between my and my wife's devices.

4. I do not need budgeting nor investment planning. It should provide good transaction monitoring with cash flow analysis.

5. It should be dependable and reliable.

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks. That thread confirms my research - nothing is really available. I use Parallel on an ISB external drive on my Mac Air just to be able to keep running Microsoft Money. As a new Mac user I am surprised to find the lack of quality and reliable apps for such a common need.

Why Microsoft abandoned MS Money is beyond me and why they never published a version for the Mac is also disappointing. I'm sure it would have been a popular choice and big seller just as MS Office for the Mac is.

MikeV99,

So you tried the Jumsoft Money4 product and didn't like it?

Hi
I have used JumSoft Accounting software for 3 years now which was a free download. It does all you ask although I haven't tried using it on shared devices. Both my husband's account and mine can be opened separately and reporting done on whichever accounts you like.

I could not find an iPad version. The Money for iPad is an iBear product. Did I miss something?

Thanks,

I am giving it a go. However, I am having major problems importing all my MS Money accounts. I have 17 accounts. I'd also like to turn off the category image and batch delete the default categories and just use mine. I am going to go to support.

Hope it works out for you. Be sure to have back ups of your data before moving forward.
