iCash bills itself as a simple program, a financial management tool for people who don't know anything about accounting. Unfortunately, the program did not seem to bring either intuitiveness or outstanding features to the table, making it a pretty mediocre choice among similar programs.
iCash's interface looks nice enough, with attractive buttons and tabs that organize its main features. However, the way that the program attempts to organize things--both accounts and transactions--doesn't always make sense. The program comes with a 13-page Word document Help file, and it does seem that with careful studying a user could figure out how iCash works. But we've seen plenty of similar programs that are obvious right off the bat, and we're not sure there's anything particularly interesting about iCash that would make us want to put in the effort. The program does lets users import transactions from their banks, which is helpful and easy enough to do. But once we'd imported our transactions, we weren't sure what the point was. The program comes with predefined expense categories, but there wasn't any obvious way to assign each transaction to a category. Overall, we felt that iCash needlessly complicated something that other programs do in a much more intuitive way.
iCash is free to try, but the trial version has a 100-transaction limit and a nag screen. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program; there are many better options available.
iCash is an easy-to-use, full featured and multi-purpose Personal Finance Manager tool for Macintosh and Windows intended to help you control all kinds of money issues. iCash can serve several small accounting needs for either private users, or clubs, associations, self-employed, small businesses or simply to be used at home, making keeping track of incomes, expenses and Banks transactions a snap.

iCash is versatile and user-friendly. For this reason it doesn't use the principle of double-entry bookkeeping making it much easier to be used by people with very little or no accounting knowledge at all. Simply create accounts for all your expenses, incomes, Banks... and start moving money between them. iCash will then allow you to find out where all your money comes from and where it goes.
