Version: Big Business 5.0.8
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Had to download and look for myself. This is ugly! Could have been designed by an old inexperienced HyperCard user. As for the argument that it is cross platform... it is still ulgy regarless of platform. Photoshop, QuarkXPress and even Word are cross platform and they are not ugly. Cross platform may be a reason but it is hardly an acceptable excuse. The poor design makes this very difficult to look at, difficult to follow and probably use. Can't bring myself to even try...I've trashed it already.
Design is part of functionality so even though the application might do the accounting thing wonderfully the interface is sends a different message. My guess is that the vendor will loose 50% or more of its potential market from a bad first impression.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Oh, it is so ugly ! For a program that has at the time of this post (4 stars) How could you make a mac program so ugly.. Oh I looked at the screen shots, Just could not use it... Take a look at the screen shots before buying this.. interface is well clutered! Messy ugly, Looks really like a PC app. I hate programs like this that are so ugly they insult mac users by trying to sucker them into something that will make you sick to look at it.. Look around and you will find lots of otehr programs out there that do the same job and look a hell of alot nicier.. I mean if mac users wanted a PC looking program , we would go to a PC,!
I did download the trial as someone posted befoe me, I have the same thing with it crashing.. but being it is so ugly I it crashed the 3 times I tried to launch it on tiger , 10.4.3 I figure I would give it 3stars, 1 for being not working, 1 for having the balls to release something so ugle and one for just effort!
Change the interface and fix the crash and hey maybe it might be good, (Oh also need a bad lay out fix!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. The only thing that a small business owner needs to know about this product is that it has unmatched features and The Worlds best Tech support. The tech support does not assume that we are all Tech's and just need a little help. They are there to make us look like Great IT's when most of us are still trying to understand Microsoft word. Thanks Big Business.

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. This is a very nice package for the money, I have used this program for many years now. The company has some of the best tech support in the industry and they listen when you give them feedback. If you are in need of small business sofware it is definitely worth a look, I switched from MYOB and never looked back!
