With its depth, plethora of options, and convenient report styles, Moneydance for Mac stands out as a professional financial software. It covers everything you could want from a financial application -- multiple account support, multiple currencies, printing, filtering, and more -- all placed in a beautiful, well-designed interface. To enjoy all its features, however, you will have to buy the premium version.
Following a straightforward installation, Moneydance for Mac gives you the option to import previous databases or start from scratch. Entry creation, which in the trial version is limited to 100 entries, is easy, though a bit overwhelming at first. The app comes prepopulated with the most popular currencies, types of accounts, and expenses, but you can choose which types of prepopulated entries to show as well as create custom ones. In terms of performance, you will be impressed with Moneydance's speed and relatively low demand for system resources considering its data processing features: it consumes only around 250MB of RAM. The program's only major downside is the lack of decent mobile support. While an iOS app is available, it is nowhere near as polished and powerful as the Mac version.
If you need to track your expenses on your Mac, look no further than Moneydance for Mac. It's a full-fledged personal finance manager with a slick interface, and while it does come with a price tag, its power and flexibility definitely make up for it. That said, don't expect to use this app on your smartphone or tablet.
