    I'm sure this question has been asked in the past but I just purchased my very first mac and I'm wondering what are the best applications for electronically managing my money... i.e. Connecting to my online bank accounts, labeling charges, investments, etc... thanks for your help guys!

    I'm in the same boat as you are. I've heard great things from friends about iBank, and it looks to have an awesome GUI. Think I might be downloading the trial soon...

    I'm very happy with iBank. It is the only program I tested (and I tested a lot) that manages money well and also has some stock functionality. In addition it looks good.

    I haven't tried the other ones, but Cha-Ching does a great job for me. It might not have advanced features, but for the everyday user, it's perfect.

    I did iBank for a few days, but found it too cumbersome with its requirement to balance checkbooks, difficulty entering mutual funds, etc.

    I'm still using the old Quicken. Can't wait for Quicken Financial Life, which was supposed to be in beta right now for a fall release. Apparently it's delayed, and Intuit is rather tight lipped about it.
