    "Does Not Connect to Financial Sites"

    April 3, 2014  |   By mciment

    Version: iBank 5.1

    Pros

    It is really easy to manipulate transactions and search and change categories and format

    Cons

    I experienced horrible access problems.
    1. Could not get updates after account was created
    2. Could not download from a previous account
    3. Kept on adding assets to investment account rather than recognizing and reconciling

    Summary

    A very frustrating experience. Spent hours in Live Chat and made zero progress

    "It's bad but the best i've found for Mac"

    March 5, 2014  |   By rvest309

    Version: iBank 5.1

    Pros

    I gave it 3 stars not because it deserves it but it's the best i've found for Mac.
    Some improvement in the 5.1 update but many more needed.
    I've used ibank since ver 3, 2009, switching from Quicken deluxe 2006 when I switched from windows to Mac. It' getting better but still so many short falls.

    Cons

    Just updated to 5.1 About 100 bugs listed as "fixed" since last update, 7 weeks ago.
    BUT Still no year end file cleanup, still no file backup, still no encryption for the data file (big security issue). etc.
    It does open faster, about 12 seconds when I first switched to ver 5 it was 35 seconds for my data file (over 30 Meg) because no year end cleanup it just keeps getting bigger. If you have investments there is no way to get rid of old accounts or transactions. Too bad it could be an excellent program it they would implement the features requested, that they have received over the years.

    Summary

    I really need to like ibank and it dose the "basics" but as far as handling stocks and other investments many issues. Budgeting very award to use. Reports limited options. So sad it's not advanced more in the 4 years i've been using it. I would be happy if it was as good as Win Quicken back in the 1990s.

    "Basically good but relatively expensive"

    February 27, 2014  |   By xquickenuser

    Version: iBank 5.0.4

    Pros

    I use this for downloading my transactions and allocating $ to budget line items.. ie. I am a simple user.

    For my purposes, the application works "okay". The envelope concept, with envelopes telling you how much cash you have to spend in any line item, is good. ,

    Cons

    As the users reviewing on the iBank site complain about, the application does not adapt well to budget changes over time, so this means you have to do more manual adjustments that I think you should have to. (Quicken also removed some flexibility to go back in time to adjust your budget - which screwed up the "yearly" view of budget vs. spend.)

    More expensive than Quicken. Have to pay approx $50US per year for the connection to your bank site and automatic download. That feature is free in Qucken.

    Summary

    As an ex Quicken (and ex-PC) user who lived through many frustrations with the way Quicken updates its product (alpha-beta-ship!!), I am convinced there is no perfect product out there for straightforward download transactions and budgeting. Too bad this space can't get filled with a quality product. I am keeping my fingers crossed that iBank is simply working out the kinks and is listening to its customer base... which would be miles above what Quicken does in my opinion. But the poster above is now making me wonder...

    A word to those thinking of switching from Qucken to iBank. No budgeting product is perfect in my view. If there is a perfect product PLEASE someone tell me!.

    "BEWARE, No phone support under any circumstances!"

    January 19, 2014  |   By Deputydog2003

    Version: iBank 5.0.4

    Pros

    It has potential.

    Cons

    It's buggy and the company offers no phone support under any circumstances. Read my summary.

    Summary

    IGG Software company (iBank for Mac, iPad, and iPhone), will not speak to their customers on the telephone under any circumstances. I just had a problem with the Mac version, where bill pay stopped working with my bank. My bank would only support Quicken, so I contacted IGG tech support by their only method... "chat". They couldn't resolve my issue after an hour of chatting. I also took the time to send them logs and screen shots of my problem at their request. They said they would get back to me after their lead developer looked at my problem. They never emailed me back. I waited three days and then I contacted THEM again by "chat", and a new representative wanted to start over with me by chatting again. I asked him if he would call me, but he refused, and then he got a "supervisor" to "chat" with me, who also wanted to start over with me by "chatting". Again, I requested a phone call. She refused. Even after giving her the ultimatum to either call me, or to refund my money and I would go back to Quicken, (who offers phone support), the supervisor chose to refund my money, rather than having any desire whatsoever to resolve my issue with a simple phone call. I would never have believed this, if I hadn't just experience it for myself! Sadly, I think they have a nice product, and I believe it would have worked better for me with multiple devices than Quicken. However, iBank is still buggy, and without the company being willing to work with their customers by any other method then by excruciatingly slow "chatting", it is not worth my while. iBank is not cheap either. By the time you've bought it for your Mac, your iPad, and your iPhone, as I had, you're up to $85.00! I simply can't do business with a software company that won't "talk" to its customers. I don't recommend that you do either.

    "Very Pleased"

    January 9, 2014  |   By d_mifflin

    Version: iBank 5.0.3

    Pros

    1. Auto categorize transactions
    2. Simple interface
    3. Drilldown reports
    4. Bill pay right from within the app.
    5. Easy view of what's cleared and what's not
    6. Awesome budget technology.

    Cons

    doesn't have iCloud or dropbox syncing to the iPad version, but they do have webdav support which is very easy to use and works flawlessly, so that is not an issue now. Has crashed once or twice, but no real worries.

    Summary

    Coming from someone who has used everything! Mint.com, Quicken for Windows many versions, Quicken for Mac many versions.

    I used iBank 3 and actually gave it up because it had quite a few shortcomings, but the developer has been listening and after about 2 years with Mint, I am switching back.

    I gave it 20 days of trial before I made this decision. Tested all aspects.

    These are the features that make it worth the price.

    1. Auto categorize transactions
    2. Simple interface
    3. Drilldown reports
    4. Bill pay right from within the app.
    5. Easy view of what's cleared and what's not
    6. Awesome budget technology.

    Get it.

    "Won't connect to online accounts."

    January 4, 2014  |   By chucksav

    Version: iBank 5.0.3

    Pros

    It's not Quicken. It's not Intuit.

    Cons

    Problems connecting to online accounts. Won't do bill pay with Wells Fargo.

    Summary

    I'm dying to replace Quicken. This was a real disappointment.

    "Bad Customer Support"

    November 22, 2013  |   By mmonahan31

    Version: iBank 4.7.2

    Pros

    NONE, None, None

    Cons

    I bought this product and within 12 days a new version came out. Nowhere was this posted on my alerts while using the Trial Version. Now IBank wants me to pay $30 to upgrade to the new version. The product itself is ok, it's not nearly as easy to use as Quicken was on my PC, but when I switched to a Mac I had to choose a new program. Unfortunately I picked the wrong one. Terrible customer support. DON"T BUY.

    "Very mediocre product"

    October 21, 2013  |   By Imadofax

    Version: iBank 4.7.2

    Pros

    Mac interface.

    Cons

    Basic functionality is missing.

    Ability to create useful multi year budgets.

    Reporting is very weak, not even able to change column widths to see full Dates.

    Unbelievable.

    Summary

    Do not buy.

    "Awful Money Mgt program*"

    July 17, 2013  |   By rtgardner

    Version: iBank 4.7.2

    Pros

    Nice Apple interface is the only pro

    Cons

    Very poor accounting interface for the trained financial accountant/investment professional. Transition from Microsoft Money or Quicken is difficult/impossible. As a retired CPA, this software is counterintuitive to normal accounting. I am sorry I bought it.

    Summary

    Check out other Money programs, do not buyback IMO
