    i did a search before asking, but didn't find what i was looking for.
    is there a good app for managing personal budget for mac?
    my needs are as following:

    ability to define income, and what part of that income is a monthly budged (say i make $500 a month, I want to set $100 to be the overall budget for that month), and also break down that budget into sub-budgets (say from those $100, i want $20 for gas, $10 for rent and such) and of course register what i actually spent from said budgets.

    also i would like it to have some sort of savings account management, so i can track it, and managing 'saving goals'.

    i saw that "Money" was recommended, but the help section / guid on there website is a bit lacking in info (and written kinda strange).

    what other good options are available?

    I use "Mint" all the time.

    It's wonderful, and free.

    You can set budgets and all that stuff.

    Thanks, ill have a look into it

    Mint is nice, but I can't use a lot of its features (pay directly from it or import bank accounts. Those things aren't available here).

    How's Koku? It looks nice, and has some favorable reviews

    I maintain that Numbers or Excel is the best personal budget managing software. They add and subtract the figures that I want them to. I've set up my own customized spreadsheets to do what I need. I would never find an app that someone else developed that would meet all of my specific requirements.

    Does this still need Adobe Air or is it now a native Cocoa app?
