    What are you all using for personal finances under OS X? I'm really getting sick of the crap that is Quicken for Mac.

    3 versions ago, when OS X was new it was, somewhat, acceptable to have some quirks, but they've had PLENTY of time to optimize it. Heck the 2003 version was simply a big bug fix release. It's slow, buggy and barely supports online banking.

    My wife (who just took over doing the bills) is about to go buy the Quicken for Windows or M$ Money to run under VPC or on her work PC. I'd really rather support a Mac product though.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm very curious to hear what people have to say about this, and I was afraid the issue might get lost in a thread about Intuit gouging people to switch to the mac, so I decided to start this new thread. Hope that's ok.

    So, what do people use. I, too, am using Quicken, and am far from satisfied. My biggest gripe is its lack of support for multiple currencies. I wrote Intuit about this, and their response was "the mac version doesn't support international currencies."

    I've checked out Liquid Ledger, and while I can see some exciting potential, I wasn't impressed with the interface. I generally find Quicken easier to work with.

    Any other products out there? Experiences to share?

    I have found all finance software on the mac to be useless. But man o man would I kill for an app called iMoney that has online bill payment, invoicing and an actual managable interface.

    The products today have almost minimal features or just tons of feature I dont use and a terrible interface.

    I have tried Quicken, Quickbooks, AccountEdge, Checkbook, and Budgetplanner - none compare with just an online banking account.
