Any good finance programs for Mac?

Since my desktop is dying and I've always used Microsoft Money on it....just looking for a nice equivalent for a MacBook if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, whether it be a free program or a paid one. Thanks OP!

Re: Any good finance programs for Mac?

I used to use Quicken 2007 until I upgraded to Lion. It works now (with a patch), but I switched everything over to iBank. It's mainly okay. I don't do anything complicated with it, so it fits my needs okay. The mobile syncing (with an iOS app) was what I was interested in at the time. The syncing works well, but it is a tad clunky for today. It still relies on MobileMe, generic WebDAV (if you have the appropriate server/services), or direct wi-fi syncing.

There is a 30-day trial of iBank if you're interested. It gives me a more Mac-like experience than Quicken (even the new Quicken Essentials for Mac, which I briefly tried but did not like). It suits my needs, but if you're heavy into managing a lot of investments and types of property (e.g., rentals), it might not do what you want.

Nah, don't need anything too complicated, just something easy enough to keep track of my checking and savings accounts

Yes, I do have a Mint account, was more into the thinking of being able to balance my checkbook and do all my inputs in like Microsoft Money.

There's a couple year's worth of discussions on Mac financial applications here:

you could always try running MS Money in WINE on the Mac. Not sure how well it would work but it might.

Ending up getting MoneyWiz. Works pretty good so far, still need to set up a few more accounts.
