"Real account mgmt, auto download & investment tracking"

January 06, 2012  |  By HappyCurmudgeon

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.13.4

Pros

Downloads multiple accounts at least twice as fast as Quicken. Results are accurate and presented clearly. Imports and stores many years of multiple account transactions. Very reliable, not fancy. Support is responsive and friendly. Ingenious solution for online accounts that don't have direct connection download (I have one credit card that doesn't). Price can't be beat. I use my bank and brokerage's online payment website, which works very well with SEE Finance.

Cons

Analytical reports are good, but limited. Works differently from Quicken, so getting familiar is gradual. I would like to see more graphing and report options, but these appear accurate. Some features, such as transaction filters have messages warning of dire consequences for using them, so I haven't. I would recommend that a "back out" feature be implemented, so you can actually use them.

Summary

I previously bought Moneydance, but had bad results. it never got through importing all my accounts. SEE Finance imported all my accounts in just a few seconds, all accurately. The download is great and free (for me). Transaction and Payee entry and update are fine. I have not run into any bug in the current release. All I would like is more of the same (reports and presentation options). I worry that Quicken will dampen the market by promising to update 2007 for Lion. Hopefully, SEE Finance will outshine that with more features.

"Practical User Friendly Personal Business Software"

November 20, 2011  |  By alohaandy

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.13.4

Pros

Very user friendly and intuitive, with considerable flexibility designed to suit various needs.
Quickly Import/Export Transactions from various formats contrary to Quicken, Quickbooks or iBank.
Export Reports easily into Excel or csv format that can then be customized to suit your accountant or clients needs contrary to Quickbooks, Mint, or iBank.
Customize the colors and fonts of the software.
Simple straight forward no non sense layout and feel.
Hit the sweet spot between too simple or too complicated.

Cons

I really can't complain about anything after dealing with Quickens disregard for the user 12 yrs ago, then Quickbooks top heavy challenge to simply download and get reports for a personal business. After reading reviews of some 20-30 personal finance software, I tried iBanks trial and was again frustrated with the complications to get simple expense reports out of it for clients.
Perhaps the name may not be the easiest to find in Goggle searches.

Summary

Almost bought iBank, thank God I goggled last minute and discovered See Finance and have been totally delighted ever since. Alas, my accounting is easily kept up to date vs spending a week or two at the end of the year tracking expenses for the accountant. Some one very smart and practical designed this software. He or she may be a geek, but they have their feet on the ground and designed a format most anybody can follow and get their finances organized . I am one happy camper after wasting so many evenings with tedious "automatic" downloads oblivious to the possibilities of setting up filters to identify accurately various payees and transactions. See Finance is the 1st personal financial package that has truly organized and satisfied my accounting needs. Kudos...job well done...Please don't sell out to Intuit for $70million as Mint did. Try this program, you won't look back!

"Great application (after losing Quicken 2007 on my Mac)"

November 15, 2011  |  By Susan Brodsky

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.13.4

Pros

I also tried out iBank and compared them side by side for a month. iBank does not work with Vanguard accounts - cannot download information and iBank gives me incorrect totals of my investment accounts at Vanguard. All it can do is make a copy of the online statement. SEE Finance works with Vanguard and all you have to do to get the value of your investments is tell it to download prices for your mutual funds, and you have it in one second flat! The registers are different to get used to than Quicken for Mac 2007, but at least it does things correctly!

Cons

It does not chart a line graph of the prices of each mutual fund like Quicken for Mac 2007 does and I miss that. I will have to learn to do that on an Excel spreadsheet, I guess.

Summary

The SEE Finance program does do a lot well; it is new and still being worked on by the developers. Not yet up to version 1.0 but has a lot going for it. You can download it and try it out for a while before buying it, and then pay for it if you like it. Very nice! Compared to using iBank, SEE Finance is the one I will keep and have paid for.

"First use today was a pleasure!"

September 18, 2011  |  By Barb P

 |  Version: SEE Finance 0.9.13.4

Pros

Ease of set up, help files well describe several ways to set up files. Online view of bank website is helpful. Large list of provided transaction categories is good. Variety of reports and report engine also very good

Cons

adding categories to transactions require a few more steps than in Quicken. Help files are good but a New User guide, capturing the help files a new user needs would be useful.

Summary

First use has proven to be a positive experience in contrast to my battle with Quicken Essentials. I use this type of software to manage personal and family checking, savings and money market account and from what I noticed today, seems that SEE will safely give me the record keeping I need.
