"Not impressed"

February 23, 2014  |  By Yaya7xs

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

I have not found this to be an extraordinary software.

Cons

Split Transactions are very cumbersome.
Help is very limited and not detailed.
Reports and sorting are limited.

Summary

I bought the See Financial Software based on the reviews on this site. I guess I just don't get it. I am very disappointed and would not recommend it to others. Where some people commented it was intuitive, I have not found it to be so. The Help Section is very limited and not thorough at all. The "Split" transaction feature is very cumbersome. The reports and sort features are limited.
I am very disappointed with Apple that they haven't developed a personal financial software for Mac. I don't think SEE is any better than their competitors.

"Beautiful, but not useful in the Netherlands?"

February 23, 2012  |  By jaolie

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

Works fast. Beautiful.

Cons

I cannot make an account for my Dutch bank: ING, so downloading is off. Csv-files can be imported, but the amounts are only stored as debit because of format in ING's file. Useless for me.

Summary

Cannot use until debit-credit problem is fixend by localisation.

"SEE Finance - the Mother of all Mac Financial software?"

May 20, 2011  |  By opticomm1

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

1. Simple + straigtforward. 2. Very Intutive. 3. Elegant GUI. 4. Very fast! 5. Direct Connect works flawlessly. 6 Investment features are great-porfolios automatically updated at every login. 7 Superb tech support, as good as I've ever experienced.

Cons

Haven't come upon anything yet

Summary

If I were reading what I am about to say about a new product, I would probably think it was a plant by the company itself. But that is definitely not the case; it's simply that SEE Finance is one amazing program!
I've been a longtime user of Quicken (probably a dozen years or more) and it was okay until I switched over to a Mac a couple of years ago.  I've been using Quicken Premier 2009 on the Windows side and have been having more and more trouble with its glitches, hiccups slowness, and other problems.  So I scoured the market for Mac financial software, looked at many and finally downloaded iBank 4 the other day.  But when I went to start using it and import my Quicken data, I somehow stumbled across SEE Finance - and immediately was impressed by all the rave reviews.  Don't know how I missed it on my earlier broad search - it just didn't surface among so many others. In any event iBank is just sitting on my Mac, as yet unopened. I've now brought all my Quicken stuff over - many accounts, credit cards, assets, liability items, and brokerage accounts.

In a couple of words, it's simply elegant - simple and straightforward yet with an elegant interface - and very fast, too. Actually it runs circles around Quicken and, more importantly, does the things I want to do better, cleaner and significantly faster. Because it seems so intuitive I forged ahead without looking at much documentation, of which there is plenty by the way. Because I didn't read much documentation I ran into a few glitches, although most all were of my doing rather than the program. So that was the point at which I decided to check out their support.

Wow, their tech support is superb beyond belief. It's via email and the first time I sent one, I had a very thorough, comprehensive response within a couple of hours. I've gone back and forth several times, mostly on brokerage accounts, and every time the response has been quick and thorough. I should have started using their excellent documentation early on but no doubt it's my lazy streak showing. In any event their tech support is as good as or better than any other company I've ever dealt with.

The version I downloaded, their latest, is 0.9.12.9. So they're not yet even at version 1.0 +, the usual launching point. I've not seen any reference to this being a beta version, and I haven't found any glitches. So can you imagine what this program will be like once they go beyond v. 1.0; it's an incredible application already. So it's also an incredible bargain at their introductory price of $29.99.

I guess one of the reasons I went to such length in describing this program is that I definitely want this company to succeed big-time. SEE Finance is so much better than Quicken ever came up with or, for that matter, anything else I looked at. Admittedly I haven't tried any of the other Mac programs - and at this point don't intend to.

Scimonocesoftware.com may have just created the mother of all Mac Financial Software!

"The other reviews of 0.9.12.9 say it all about SEE!"

May 15, 2011  |  By Stephenborisoff

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

Brain power has gone into developing SEE Finance. The reports are bountiful and don't waste paper like the convoluted iBank 4 reports do. SEE can do most everything now and will do it all soon. It is not officially released yet but it rocks!

Cons

Absolutely none to speak of. All eye candy and there is plenty is useful and can be turned off, by the way.

Summary

Look, folks, Lion is coming in the Summer. Rosetta is gone. Quicken 2007 won't run in Lion any more. It is essential to ferret out who is the Quicken Killer...is it the homely Moneydance, the "tell me nothing" reporting iBank 4 or the elegant SEE Finance, the "can and will do it all app", which you must choose from? I would put my money on SEE Finance and soon. It only costs about $29.95! What an app!

"Best financial software for Mac that I have found."

May 09, 2011  |  By tllambert

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

Easy to use with straight forward interface. Excellent reports. Best import capabilities of any Mac finance software. It accepted my MS Money files as well as those from Quicken for Mac and iBank.

Cons

None. However, it would be helpful to be able to edit directly in the register screen

Summary

Been using SEE Finance for 8 months. Moving from MS money to a Mac solution for finance was becoming a big problem until I found SEE Finance. It does everything I need and more. In my opinion no other finance program for Mac even comes close.

"Great Product!"

May 04, 2011  |  By MarkRoderick

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

Features, ease of use, conversion of data.

Cons

Just a little rough pending version 1.0.

Summary

I've been using Quicken for Windows for 20 years - running it on Parallels since switching to a Mac a few years ago. Like so many others, I was first perplexed, then frustrated, then exasperated when, after years of promises, Intuit delivered a Mac version of Quicken that is, to be kind, a very bad joke.

But not only is SEE Finance three leagues up from Quicken Essentials for the Mac, it is actually superior in many ways to Quicken for Windows, and that's before version 1.0!

I'm pretty demanding of software but am very, very impressed with this product. Twenty years of Quicken data transferred flawlessly (for years Intuit was unable to convert Windows data to its own Mac version) and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Great support, great features, very easy to use.

"This is the absolutely the best Mac financial software!"

March 23, 2011  |  By bkullma102

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

It is very flexible, fast and offers all the functionally that a personal finance program should have! The trial period is unlimited and with full functionality! The price is very reasonable!

Cons

None so far.

Summary

I used Quicken when I had a PC. Switching to a MAC left me looking for a new solution. I bought MoneyWell, MoneyDance and Ibank4. I tested most of the others. Now I have found and use See Finance. It is far superior to all the other programs I have tried and/or bought!

"This software is awesome. I'm very happy."

February 25, 2011  |  By whybuy

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.12.9

Pros

Intelligent and simple layout, excellent help section, I moved from Quicken to this software. Much easier to use and truly an excellent program. I never write these reviews, and created this account to write this one I like it so much. Worth it!

Cons

Don't have anything bad to say.

Summary

If you are a mac user looking for an alternative to Quicken, you found it. You won't be disappointed. Tell all your friends about it. Great software like this should be utilized and supported. Pay for it and support the cause!
