Applications :: Personal Finance Software Compatible With Mac - PC - Iphone And Blackberry
Jun 16, 2010
I realize this is a tall order, but my husband and I are searching high and low for a personal budgeting software that is compatible with all our electronic portals. I am a die hard Mac user and he will never leave his PC/Blackberry. We're trying to find a program that will sync between the four, allowing us to update transactions while we are on the go. I've seen Splash Money and I'm not too impressed. I think we've exhausted all our options, but just wanted to throw the question out here to see if we've missed anything.
I've tried many options and none I felt were that stellar: Cha Ching (now gone), MoneyWell, Money, iBank. iBank I stuck with the longest, actually, but it's really getting on my nerves because the interface is crappy in some spots. The programmers just have no clue about good user interface design, and it's frustrating as hell. Plus they don't listen to input.
This one caught my eye: (URL)
If anyone has any other recommendations, I'm open. The app must have an iPhone counterpart for syncing, that's a must. Good, usable interface is also a must.
I've been looking for a good one for a while. Quicken for the mac isn't supposed to out for some time. I looked into some of the free options (iSquirrel), but they were disappointing. I've heard good things about iBank (http://www.iggsoftware.com/ibank/), but does anyone have any experience or recommendations? I really just haven't found an efficient way to download my online statements (OFX file support), categorize them, and view them in a line graph.
In the last couple of weeks, I have not been able to use the Personal Hotspot on my iPhone 4s via the USB/sync cable to either of two 2011 Macs, both running the latest version of Lion, with all relevant software updated, including Flashback removal & Java updates. The connection via Bluetooth & wi-fi is unaffected.
Opening the Network System Preference pane, the connection is shown as iPhone USB, but it is not connected, even with all other internet access methods either deactivated or disconnected.
This issue is related to Lion, as the G4 & G5 PPC Macs running 10.5.8 which I either use or administer are not affected by this problem. The iPhone is running on iOS 5.1 and is not jailbroken.
Is it possible that the Flashback/Java issues and Apple's interpretation of their prevention/removal has affected this aspect of internet access via Personal Hotspot?

I have an old G4 eMac with an 800 MHz processor, it's still using panther. The computer will not recognize my iPhone and I can not upload raw images from my digital camera. I understand that I need iPhoto 6 and osx 10.4 for the iPhone. I only use this computer for music and simple photo manipulation. If I get these upgrades will my computer accept them or has my camera and phone made my old computer obsolete?
I am looking for a basic app (free if possible) that can help me convert movie files. For example, I took a video with my digital camera and the extension is .avi. I want to put on my iphone, which I believe only handles mp4 or m4v.
When I download audio files from Vuze they play perfectly in itunes but I cannot sync them with my Iphone. Is there some kind of transcoding I need to perform before my Iphone will support these audio files?
I'm looking for a free personal budgeting program to balance my finances and plan for the rocky road ahead (grad school). Does anyone have any recommendations? My only real requirement is that I'm able to add categories/sub-categories for expenses/income (not too demanding). I gave Buddy a try, but I didn't like the layout and how it sub-categorized everything under it's own titles.
What is the best way to finance a MacBook? I was looking at the deferred interest for 12 months from Barclay's on Apples site. However, I have not calculated how much interest that would really be but is it a guarantee that they would give me enough credit limit to cover that MBP I would want?
As the title says I am looking for database software for my desktop (latest gen 27 iMac core i7). I am a science major and a data monger, so I have tons of scientific papers, articles, blogs, my own documents etc. I have quite a collection, and find my self relying on it more than on google when I want an answer fast. However, I know there has to be a better solution. I have done some filemaker work, but it is too damn expensive so I don't know if I can justify the cost of me buying it my self.
First time poster who just recently made the switch from pc to my new macbook pro and loving it though i'm still learning the ropes so be gentle with me
Back in my windows days i used a choice little program called keePass to handle all my logins/passwords/serial keys etc etc not so much as to automatically fill them in for me but just as a record. Now that i've made the switch i've been having to keep a pretty messy rtf document until a better solution comes along. Any applications come to mind?
I am looking for a program that I can use to keep a personal journal/diary. I would like it to have some of the features of a modern blog such as incorporating pictures, video, etc., but I would like everything stored locally. I am experimenting with Journler [URL] but there are some things I don't like about it, and since I plan on using it regularly for years to come, I want it to be as perfect as possible. One thing I would definitely like is the option to change the date on entries since many of my entries are in retrospect. Also, it looks like Journler is going defunct.
So I am selling my early 2011 MacBook Pro and have been having a lot of trouble getting people to buy it at my asking price... So I was thinking of ways I can get it at the price I wanted and thought to use the software on the computer as a selling point. Well it worked and I have all of adobe CS5 on it along with Microsoft Office for mac and windows 7 as a partition. Well I got a buyer who is interested primarily because of the software and I want to sell it but just keep the applications on it. What can I do to protect myself by getting rid of any personal information? Do I just go to my key chain and wipe it clean and wipe all my documents? The licensing for the applications won't be an issue for me so I don't care about that.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
I got my first Mac yesterday after years of crappy Window PCs....the lower end 15 Mac Pro. I had to get Office to make it compatible with PCs otherwise I would have got iWork. I also use Firefox as my web browser. and i know i dont need antivirus but i would like some type of protection. so my question is: what free programs would protect you against privacy and personal issues such as data or spyware? And against Microsoft Office viruses that it brings in? And I know people don't like Java and you should block it?
Just like many of you I purchased the Macheist Nanobundle and am looking to finally put the domain names i've been paying for over a year for to use. One will be a personal blog. The second I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with but I have figured it out.
What i'd like to do is be able to post up RSS news feed items from multiple different websites so that friends and family and read the best of. Basically i'll filter through everything (as I already do) and just forward on the best of items. Currently I have all of my RSS feeds through google reader, and currently read them on NetNewsWire on my mac. Is there a current application or website which will allow me to do this?
I used Macthe Ripper to rip my sons chuggington dvd to my macbook pro, then i used handbrake to convert it, i managed to copy the converted file to my itunes library, but when i symc my iphone 3gs, it says it won't copy the file because it can't be played on my iphone.Several forums mention using the iphone/ipod touch preset when converting in Hnadbrake, now i may be a numpty, but i cant find this preset anywhere?! The closest thing i can see is an apple button/setting.when i selected apple and told it to play again, it said it would overwrite the prev converted verison. It took hours to convert the first time, if I do this, will it really work? Or will I waste another 3 hours?!
Unfortunately because there is no iphone on verizon i had to go with a blackberry storm. Does anyone else with one know how to connect it to a mac to update the software and such. It seems as though windows is required, but i really don't want windows taking up space on my hard drive. it seems like there has to be some way to connect a blackberry to a mac.
I got tired of waiting for the iPhone to be available on my carrier (TMobile) and was able to get a Blackberry Curve from them for about $100 with a 14 day guarantee to see if I like it. If I don't I get to send it back and cancel the data plan.
I was wondering what Mac syncing apps are out there that people like? I have heard of two and am mostly concerned about syncing iCal with my Blackberry.
